Tag: Flesh Eater Courts

Still Very Tired

The last week has been dominated still by sleep issues so not much to say, but I have an appointment with a doctor on Monday about it.

What I Am Modelling

I started off by painting the Abhorrent Ghoul King on Royal Terrorgheist for my Flesh-Eater Courts.

This now completes that army to 2000 points and completes my resolution for 2021 for Age of Sigmar.

I then built models to ensure my next 20 projects were ready to go and I got that lot finished on Saturday night.

Annoyingly I had to 3D print a couple of bits for this, first off I managed to lose the back of a head for a B1 Bartledroid for Star Wars Legion, so I basically printed off a droids head to harvest the back of it.

And when building an Imperial Knight, I got a miscast part, luckily it was a part that’s very commonly available as an STL because it allows you to magnetise a weapon, so i printed that and now my Warden has a choice of either the chainsword or the fist!

I then painted up a bust that I printed last month of a Death Korps of Krieg Infantryman.

I am currently working on a Shokkjump Dragsta for the Orks, the buggy is finished, just working on the crew now.

What I Am Reading

Not a sausage, sleep problems are making it a real issue.

What Video Games Am I Playing

A little bit of Forza Horizon 4 started the week to get me in the mood for 5!

I also decided it’s time to use my Oculus Quest seriously, and I got it up and running with my PC properly, playing some Project Cars and Star Wars Squadrons.

I also played Sonic the Hedgehog for the Mega Drive for a play through video which uploaded yesterday.

Of course with Forza Horizon 5 landing on Friday, I played an awful lot of that!

What I Tabletop Games Am I Playing

Me and Megan had a game of The Sock Game on Monday, she wasn’t well and it kinda cheered her up before lunch.

Despite her being ill, of course she still won!

Also played a game of Nature Fluxx which I surprisingly won!

What Am I Creating

I got the latest battle report uploaded in Friday night, but annoyingly there were some sound issues.

The next episode of Edge of Empire is almost finished and should be out tomorrow.

And I put up my play though of Sonic the Hedgehog on the Mega Drive up on YouTube.

What I Am Backing

Not a thing right now, nowt has taken my interest.

What I Am Cooking

I made some pulled pork on Sunday which was quite nice, must make that again soon.

What I Am Spending

Not much, but did buy some new glasses which I pick up tomorrow.

Changing Medication

So we think the reason I am feeling crummy, is a change in medication for my diabetes.

To be honest though, I am gonna try and tough it out, this new medication has some real positives, it’s reduced a personal issue which was causing a lot of pain, and it’s got me feeling like I have a healthy relationship with food for the first time in a long time.

The disadvantages are that my tummy has been a bit topsy turvey, and I am having eggy burps.

I have asked the doctor if we can reduce the dose slightly, so I shall see what they say.

What Am I Modeling

I started by finishing off the Necron Canoptek Wraiths, which actually completes the resolution to paint 2000 points of Necrons this year!

The first unit is armed with Transdimensional Beamers.

The second lot have no ranged weapon upgrade at all.

I then painted up three Crypt Flayers, a Crypt Infernal and a Crypt Haunter Courtier, which leaves me with just a Aberrant Ghoul King on a Royal Terrorgheist to paint for this army.

After that I painted a Lord of Virulance for the Death Guard, alongside the Plague Marines and Poxwalkers for Blackstone Fortress.

And I also managed to paint the Skitarii Marshall, who will also serve as a Secutarii Axiarch.

I have these past few days working on some Thousand Sons Terminators & Ahriman, trying out some new techniques.

I have gotten one finished and I am really happy with him.

Hopefully the rest will be finished tomorrow.

I also finally think I have this 3D printing things sorted!


So what’s coming up next week?

  1. Magos Macrotek Enginseer & Sevo-Automata x 4 (if I can find it!)
  2. Thousand Sons Terminators x 5 & Ahriman
  3. Blackstone Fortress Rogue Psykers x 3 & Negavolt Cultists x 6

  5. Ork Nobz x 6, Painboy & Warboss

  8. Blackstone Fortress Spindle Drones x 6 & Guardian Drones x 2
  9. Phase 1 Clone Troopers x 22
  10. Ork Shokjump Dragster

What I Am Reading

Not a sausage actually.

But I did finish listening to the Godblight audiobook, and really enjoyed it, some interesting plot points that the Black Library can build upon.

What Video Games Am I Playing

I played through Alex Kidd in Shinobi World, a game I got for my 8th birthday, leant to my friend Simon and never saw again.

But I played it though emulation on Retroarch, and you can see that video below.

I also completed Halo 3, and I kinda wish that 343 Industries would remaster this game as it looks so much worse than the anniversary version of Halo 2.

And I have just tonight started on Halo 3 ODST, which is a beautiful game.

I also started up a Minecraft realm for my nephews, so they can have their own private area to play after a few nasty incidents in the game.

What Tabletop Games Am I Playing

Tonight I got in a three way game of 40K to start my crusade off.

I am not gonna give any spoilers away as I have made a battle report for it that will be published on Friday.

What I Am Creating

As mentioned above I played through Alex Kidd in Shonobi World and made a video if that, which you can see in that section.

I also published the Battle report for the second game of the Imperium magazine.

What I Am Backing

Still just Rawr! Velociraptor! which at the point of writing this has 2 hours left.

What I Am Cooking

Actually not a thing 🙁

Warhammer + Is Here

I know some people are determined to not get Warhammer +, but I have, and I will walk you through the reasons.

And I have honestly seen a lot of rants about it, mostly seeming to focus ok the animation side, but I do have to say that Warhammer + is a service that is more than just Warhammer TV, it’s also the included mini, the Warhammer Vault access, the apps, etc. to base your impression on just one aspect is just a bit daft.

First off, I would never usually suggest getting a service/product based on its possible future potential as I find this is usually a waste of money as nothing is ever guaranteed. Products should have a decent feature set before launching rather than promises of future features.

However Warhammer + makes sense financially for me, let me walk you through it. I play both Age of Sigmar and 40K, and I use the apps, which currently cost me £2.98, which is going to rise to £3.98 with the new AoS app.

So annually I will be paying £47.76 to Games Workshop for these two services, so Warhammer + would only cost me £2.23 if I get the annual plan.

Now the £10 voucher for signing up before 1st September means actually it’s going to be -£7.77, and when add in the model you get with the subscription, models that I want both of, you save even more.

These models I have set at a price of £20, although the Megaboss from the normal range is £25. So that means it’s actually now at -£27.77.

So it works for me, of course for other people the maths will vary and for them it may not be worth it, but it is for me.

What’s It Actually Like???

Well in all honesty, it’s a little thin on the ground right now, but what’s on there is good.

Angels of Death is very cool, although the mouths are a bit odd, but I can live with that.

I am yet to watch any of Hammer and Bolter apart from Old Bale Eye, which I really enjoyed.

The Battle Reports are well, extremely high end and professional and really raise the bar for those. Makes my stuff look pants by comparison.

The painting Masterclass is superb and I am digging out some Thousand Sons Terminators to try out some wet blending.

The Vault, that’s the one aspect I am less keen on, simply because you can’t download stuff, and the site is clunky when using a phone, if they bring us an app for that it will be better.

In general I am happy with the service, if they keep up with the new content every Wednesday I will be very happy.

I would like to see the YouTube painting videos included in the service at some point, just so everything is together in one place that’s a bit easier to navigate.

The service is as I said, thin on the ground, but I think within a few months it will be a lot better.

I have subscribed for a year because I want it to be a success, I want it to work, and I am breaking my own rule because if this does work, it will be an amazing resource for the community.

The reveal of the first weeks new releases, is a bit underwhelming, I would have hoped for a couple of the Citadel Masterclasses and at least two animations.

The Vault additions are actually pretty nice, with some White Dwarfs for this year being added.

But it’s still early days.

What I Am Modelling

I started off the week with some Triarch Praetorians.

These have been painted as being from the Szarekhan Dynasty because they serve the Triarch and thus why would their armour be in the colours of another dynasty?

I also painted all the Traitor Guardsmen for Blackstone Fortress alongside the Commissar and Ogryn from Traitor Command.

The Traitor Command models were finished first.

Followed by the Traitor Guardmens.

I then painted a unit of 20 Crypt Ghoul’s for my Flesh-Eater Courts alongside a Crypt-Ghast Courtier.

After that I painted a squad of Secutarii Hoplites and their Termite transport


So what’s coming up next week?

  1. Zone Mortalis Terrain
  2. Legio Custodes Pallas Grav-Attack
  3. Stormcast Eternals Praetors x 3, Knight-Vexellor & Vindictor
  4. Legio Custodes Agamatus Jetbikes x 3
  5. Stormcast Eternals Anhiliators x 3, Lord Imperatant & Gryph Hound
  6. Blitzkrieg HQ & MG34 MMG Team
  7. Death Guard Fire Raptor
  8. Necron Canoptek Wraiths x 6
  9. Mechanicum Magos Macrotek Engineseer & Servoautomata x 4
  10. Flesh-Eater Courts Crypt Flayers x 3

What I Am Reading

Ummm I actually haven’t read all week 🙁

What Video Games Am I Playing

Not played a lot, but just a few bits and pieces here and there.

I did manage to get the Saturn emulator running properly. Retroarch ended up being a bust, there wasn’t a single core that could run the games correctly and the way it handles six button controllers is kinda annoying.

So I ended up going with Mednafen which works like a dream, just need to add a graphical front end.

Speaking of six button controllers, I finally managed to get my hands on a reasonably priced 6 button USB Mega Drive controller, and playing Street Fighter 2 on the Mega Drive Mini is no longer an awful nightmare!

I did pull all of my controllers out on Saturday and I think I might have a problem!

But I am having real struggle controlling N64 emulated games, so I have ordered a USB Retro-Bit controller which should arrive Tuesday I think.

What Tabletop Games I Am Playing

On Tuesday I had an open war game of 40K at Durham Raiders.

I lost but it was very close, and a battle report is currently in production.

On Saturday we played a game of Pandemic: Hot Zone North America and were beaten by the game.

What I Am Creating

I have a new battle report in the production phase, there were camera issues so it’s taken a bit longer than I would have liked.

I am going to be making a report for the first Imperium game plan.

Me and Megan are going to play though all the collections game plans for some battle reports, as an ongoing narrative.

And tonight I am recording a Dreadclaw for the Company of Legends lists.

What I Am Backing

I am still backing Avatar Legends: The Roleplaying Game which has 3 days left to run at time of writing.

What I Am Cooking

I was supposed to be making shepherds pie on Saturday but we were really really busy tidying up all weekend 🙁


Starting Flesh-Eaters Courts with Mortal Realms

For those of you subscribing to Mortal Realms, if you went Premium, then you will hopefully by now have the first Premium set which focuses on the Flesh-Eater Courts.

So I decided to look at how you would turn this into a 1000pt army and a 2000pt army for as little as possible.

So let’s look at what the box gives you first off, and what you get if you build it as the guide suggests.

  • Abhorrant Archregent
  • Crypt Ghouls x 20
  • Crypt Flayers x 3

So let’s look at they when plugged into Azyr, and if you split the Crypt Ghouls into two units of 10 that gives you 610 points.

So where would I go from here, well personally I would grab a Start Collecting Flesh-Eater Courts, this gives you an additional 10 Crypt Ghouls, 3 more Crypt Flayers and a Terrorgheist plus I’d also grab the Endless Spells.

Now you can’t pop all this in the list to get to 1000pts, you would go way over, but that’s fine because we are gonna use most of the box to get to 2000pts.

So with this in mind my new list would be:-

  • Abhorrant Archregent
  • Abhorrant Ghoulking
  • Crypt Ghouls x 10
  • Crypt Ghouls x 10
  • Crypt Ghouls x 10
  • Crypt Flayers x 3
  • Chalice of Ushoran
  • Corpsemare Stampede

And that gets you to 990pts.


Ok so let’s get cracking on with 2000pts.

Straightaway I am gonna throw in the Terrorgheist, and then build some Crypt Horrors to use up the rest of the Start Collecting set.

That gets you to 1420 and I think the best way to go to 2000, is to buy another Start Collecting set!

So from that we add in an Abhorrant Ghoul King on a Terrorgheist, and we make from the Crypt Flayers, plus the bits we have saved from the other kits, a Crypt Haunter Courtier and a Crypt Infernal Courtier plus another one of your choice to use all three models.

So the list I have now looks like this:-

  • Abhorrant Archregent
  • Abhorrant Ghoul King
  • Abhorrant Ghoul King on a Royal Terrorgheist
  • Crypt Infernal Courtier (Or Crypt Haunter Courtier)
  • Crypt Ghouls x 10
  • Crypt Ghouls x 10
  • Crypt Ghouls x 10
  • Royal Terrorgheist
  • Crypt Horrors x 3
  • Crypt Flayers x 3
  • Corpsemare Stampede
  • Chalice of Ushoran

That gives you a list of 1960pts for adding two Start Collecting boxes and the Endless Spells.

And it leaves you with 10 Crypt Ghouls left over, personally I’d be tempted to make a Crypt Ghasy Courtier and then hit eBay up for the parts to make another Crypt Ghast so you can have another full unit of 10 for when you want to change your list up.

I am not going to pretend this list will won you games, because frankly I don’t know if it will, I haven’t played Flesh-Eater Courts before and I won’t pretend this is a big tactica article.

But this will get you an army for Battlehost level games for as little outlay as possible.

If you were to buy the kits from Element Games, it would cost you £110.50, which isn’t too bad.

I’d also be tempted to grab the Charnel Throne as well, it’s not too much of an outlay and does look really cool.


When it comes to painting them, Peachy at Warhammer TV did a great video for painting The Grymwatch, the Warhammer Underworlds Warband for the Flesh-Eaters Courts and if you are gonna do Hollowmourne this is the way I would paint them.

In fact I probably will paint them this way.

So let me know what you think of my ideas, and if you are gonna give them a try out, let me know how it goes!


Just a quick note, if you do follow the links to Element Games and buy something from them, a little bit of a commission is made for Edge of Empire which helps keep the podcast running.
