After a bit of a hobby hiatus I’ve gotten back into a new project for Age of Sigmar (aside from making a whole lot of terrain, but more on that later…)
A while ago I was trying to think of a new army to do for AoS. I had settled on Death for a while but when I started to work on the models I put the army on the backlog for a while. I think I’ll still do it in the future, but for now I’m focusing on something new.
The idea formed when I was thinking about what happens to a Stormcast Warrior when they die – they get zapped back to Azyr and reforged.
I got to thinking, what happens if they don’t make it? What happens if the soul of a warrior gets lost on the way?
This is where the idea for Sigmar’s Fallen came from. Stormcast warriors who died in battle, were sent back to Azyr, but along the way the Gods of Chaos corrupted them and turned them into something else.
From Stormcast to Slave to Darkness
I settled on playing the army as Slaves to Darkness. I didn’t want to go the obvious route of Tzeentch, Khorne or Nurgle. I started to think about what units in the Stormcast army could be transferred across and I came up with the following:
- Liberators become Chaos Warriors
- Paladins become Chosen
- Vanguard Paladors become Chaos Knights
- Dracothian Guard become Varanguard
Chaos Knights (the mounts at least!)
The characters is where it gets a bit more complicated. I’m thinking I want to include the following:
- Daemon Prince
- Sayl the Faithless
- Chaos Lord on Daemonic Steed
- Sorcerer Lord
I’ve got ideas for the Daemon Prince and the Chaos Lord on Daemonic Steed but I haven’t exactly settled on the other two yet.
After I get the Chaos Knights and the Chosen assembled to the same point as the Chaos Warriors I need to revisit everything I’ve done so far and corrupt their armour a bit. They’re still far too ‘clean’ at the moment for my liking.
After that I’ll start on the Varanguard and the Daemon Prince as I suspect they are going to take a while to build.
Once again, thanks for having a read of my humble little blog and I hope you enjoyed the read.
