Shadespire/ Aos Painting Journey

I recently got involved in playing Shadespire when it was released back in 2017.  It is a fun game that hits some of the things I like about gaming; small model count, deck building and cool gaming accessories.  We have a small group of people that starting pushing models around at the local game store and they started talking about AoS.  One of the benefits of Shadespire is the models can be used in AoS.  So a small league of about 14 people sparked up and we all started playing Path to Glory.  This was a slow grow league so we could learn how to play AoS and started collecting our armies.  I jumped in with playing the new Orruks and built an Ironjaws army.  I have been having a blast and really enjoy playing the game.  To me it has some of the rules from Lord of the Rings that I like and plays rather fast, our armies are around 1000 points.  The league has come to an end and now I have all these new models to paint.

I was able to talk Jeff into pulling out his Legion of Azgorh and getting them on the table.  He has an amazing Forge World collecting that never got painted and now he is excited to start playing them.  We decided to start a painting journey getting 1000 points painted over the next few months.  We will be sharing our progress on our show and I will keep my blog paged updated.  Tonight I finished my Shadespire models and I am really happy with how they turned out.  I am still working with Yellow for this army and feel I have this color down.  I will start working on some new color receipts moving forward and some new paints.
