Having successfully shared my Soulblight Gravelords Warcry Warband last week, this week I thought I’d return to the Cursed City and summon some more painted miniatures to help my quest of a fully painted set. Read on to find out if I managed to escape the grey plastic tide or if I filled the ranks of the Deadwalker Zombies with fresh corpses.
Quick recap, when GW sent me my copy of Cursed City, I decided to offer a painting guide for every single model in the box. This task took me months and I’m really proud of it and it’s helped so many painters. However it destroyed my will to finish the box. After month’s of work I had just over dozen finished models, that was soul destroying output for someone as prolific as myself. It was the idea of the Warcry Warband that reanimated my interest in Cursed City.
With the Warcry Warband done and the Cursed City set nearly done, it’s got me thinking about next steps. Something I’ve not really looked at yet is Path to Glory. Path to Glory is in the Narrative Play section of the Big Age of Sigmar rulebook. It’s like Warcry in the sense that you have a roster, territories and you levelling up your units with new abilities and artefacts, the difference is you use the unit entries from your chosen faction’s Battle Tome.
Path to Glory seems like a good way for me to slow grow my Soulblight Gravelords army. So whilst I waited for my Battle Tome to arrive from Wayland Games I thought I’d paint the Deadwalker Zombies and Rat Swarms from Cursed City. I was just about finishing them off when the Battle Tome arrived and I discovered Zombies minimum unit size is 20 and Rat Swarms aren’t even in the book. Not the greatest starts to my Path to Glory army.
So this week I’ve ordered the Flesh-eater Courts Start Collecting Set and I’m going to build a Vampire Dragon and some Vargheists. Both of which I can use in Path to Glory and Warcry.
