Any Old Iron: Ironjawz vs Disciples of Tzeentch

Bulla, Megaboss of Da Flat Iron Clan and warlord of Da Wasted Plains, gave a hard stare to the stone icon, then headbutted it. He didn't like the way that vulture head was looking at him, so he smashed his forehead into it for a second time. The stone was starting to crumble. Good, he thought. Gork damn him if he was going to take any cheek from a statue.

"Dey are coming for it," said his Warchanter, Groll, tapping out his two stikks while he spoke. They had not reached the ear-bursting beat of battle, but the gods-infused stikks were knocking out an impatient tempo. Every heartbeat brought them closer to slaughter.

"Da humies?" Bulla asked. His outriders had seen a large mob of chaos-worshippers drawing close, dragging a large casket of loot behind them.

Groll nodded at the cracked icon. "Dey want dis one, and the one on the uvver side of town."

Bulla thumped his meaty fist against his breastplate. A shower of rust flaked away, but there were still many inches of pig-iron covering several more inches of thick Orruk muscle. "Get da ladz. We'll pull 'em into our jawz, den crush 'em."

The Warchanter gave both Gorkskikk and Morkstikk a determined bash, igniting the green Waaagh! power within. "It's gonna be an 'ard day's night."

Age of Sigmar battle report: 'Take And Hold' between Orruk Ironjawz and Disciples of Tzeentch.

Melt down the ferrite!
It's All-Skype Fight Night!

The Ark of Alternatives campaign continues apace (that pace being once a month). This time, I Stylus, will be bringing a new faction to play, hastily painted up during the bank holiday: the Ironjawz!

Final Level

Well, that didn't take long.

Something like 16 months from delivery to shelf. These guys were still alive when it arrived, and now look at them.

Warlord of Galahir: Bouncers Back

We got puréed in our last encounter with The Bouncers, but if first you don't succeed ... blame the questbook and generate some more effective dungeoneers!

Behold, two new-and-improved heroes, ready to re-try the mission!

Gorechosen: Anger Management

It's been a few months since I rushed through sufficient basecoats to play Gorechosen with my family at Christmas (and got my anvil handed to me), but I've finally finished off the Red Hand Gang.

Imagine this walk in slow-motion and it would be AWESOME.

Let's meet the Fab Four!

So before you head on past the page break, see if you can guess what I've been painting this week. Go on, pick something. I feel confident I can surprise you.

One Man And His Bird-Dog

So after a year of painting the miniatures (okay, painting half the miniatures, don't look at me like that, leadpile), I finally got in my first game of Warhammer Quest: Silver Tower.

Gryph-Hound from Warhammer Quest: Silver Tower.

I had a blast, and was immediately inspired to pluck one of the heroes from the unpainted stack

(don't worry, it's not just the Gryph-Hound)

The Birdmen of Silvatowaz

I may have been too slow for Tzaanuary, so let's pretend my deadline was for the start of Tzaapril!

Tzaangor from Warhammer Quest: Silver Tower, Age of Sigmar

Let's crack on with these blue meanies!

Warlord of Galahir: Double Trollble

Warlord of Galahir rides again! And if you liked the starting mission, where the quest was to kill a Troll; you'll love this one, where we have to kill... two Trolls!

Not straining the imagination much, are we?

Remember the Tzaalamo: Tzeentch Mortals vs Slaves to Darkness

Warlock reared up his steed, the creature's dread hooves flailing high in the air, summoning his horsemen around him. Those seven heroes had pursued his coven ever since they had taken custody of the Ark of Alternatives. Now they blundered into his trap and the Disciples of Tzeentch would sink in their talons.

They were great warriors, in their way. Each a mighty champion of the ruinous powers, their weapons soaked red. But against the inscrutable machinations of the Great Architect, they were lost sheep. And sheep, Warlock thought, were born to be sheared. 

Civil war? Not quite -
It's All-Skype Fight Night!

Continuing our Ark of Alternatives campaign, our next fight sees me, Kraken, as the forces of chaos. A small, select squad of infamous Slaves to Darkness, known names across the realms, has mustered to try and destroy the Ark before it can be opened. Can the Tzeentch Arcanists gathered under Stylus's banners (that's me, in bold) see me off?

All Change!

Like Schubert's 8th Symphony, my painting desk has been racking up the unfinished projects since Christmas. But that's about to ... CHANGE!

Was that too on-the-nose? (on-the-beak?)

As you can tell from our recent Age of Sigmar battle reports, I've been delving into Tzeentch Arcanites (mostly by drafting my Silver Tower set, or borrowing from Kraken's extensive collection). But now I can roll out my own models - starting with the Magister!

Warlord of Galahir: While You Were Sleeping

We're back into the Dungeon Saga of Galahir! Tonight's brave quest involves ... the murder of the unconscious.

Wait, what? Are we going to happily kill the minions in their sleep?

Red Dwarf IV: Justice
"I could happily kill him if he was on the job."

What the hell kind of heroes are these anyway? I blame Joe Abercrombie.

Don't Look At Me

Oh alright, Stylus, yes I'll paint a hundred models this month. Stop nagging.

Monday, 27 February 2017

I Don't Have a Problem

1. I have felt the need to Cut down on my painting
2. People have Annoyed me by criticizing my painting
3. I have felt Guilty about painting
4. I have to paint at least one Eye-opening squad before breakfast to steady my nerves

But I'd still deny there's anything wrong with me.

I Can Quit Any Time I Want

It's not been a busy month, this. That's why I've got so much painting done.

Warlord of Galahir: Do Not Feed The Orclings

The next mission of our greenskin Dungeon Saga introduces something different: a second room!

Off we go on another exciting adventure of Bloody Hell, Haven't You Painted Those Doors Yet?

It's Raining Men: Disciples of Tzeentch vs Brayherd

The narrative campaign continues, and this time we're trying out one of the General Compendium's 'matched play' scenarios: "Gift From the Heavens". 

It's a nifty set-up where you score cumulative points for claiming objectives - crashed meteors - the twist being that they don't crash until the second turn, so you don't know where they'll land...

... and of course we added our own twist: these aren't meteors, but Khorne Champions, who are not keen to be claimed, and will attack anything within range until they are subdued.

Watch Out For That Meteorite!
It's All-Skype Fight Night!

Not all Spocks are logical, calculated perfectionists. Some are vibrant, passionate arty types. I like them.

Let's Go To Galahir!

New dungeon, new heroes - let's go hunt some orc!

Say hello to Guraf, Kapoka, Hrrath and Thessilar 

After triumphing in Dwarf King's Quest (almost - we're still waiting for us all to be in the same country before attempting the finale), Leofa and I, Stylus, once again face the Evil Overlord Kraken in a brand new dungeon: Warlord of Galahir!

Cool Armour, Bro

A handful of Dungeon Saga models from completion, and yet my attention has wandered. What could possibly be responsible this distraction?

One of these things is not like the other...

Let's lift that veil...

Valandor! (no actual doors)

We come to it at last ... the Return of Valandor!

Ba'el - Undead Demonlord for Return of Valandor expansion for Mantic's Dungeon Saga.

A return somewhat less anticipated than the Jedi, King and Planet of the Apes, but perhaps one notch above the Pink Panther.

X Wing: FanFic vs Bombing Run

Image result for TIE Bomber

After spending most of either out of the country, or with a non-xwing friendly house-guest, I (Kas) was hankering for a game.

There was only so much list building I could do from the comfort of hotel rooms, and so with the added bonus of being a bit of a jet-lag deterrent, Kraken and I cracked out the mat the day I landed back from the States.

Two games to go through, over a couple of nights.

A Little Halpi From My Friends

As you may have noticed from my collection over the years, I have an aversion to painting larger models, and anything over a 25mm base brings me out in the vapours.

But there's nothing like some friendly competition to push your boundaries, and the prospect that I might actually beat (or at least give him a run for his money) the painting deamon that is Kraken has spurred me into attempting my first dragon.

Karrathor the Unbroken - Dragon from Tyrant of Halpi expansion for Mantic's Dungeon Saga

Ritual of Rot: Nurgle Mortals vs Tzeentch Arcanites

Rebels Without Effect

Not much left of the giant 40K commission for Leofa left now. Barely a single army, in fact. Easy.

Friday, 20 January 2017

Galahir We Go!

Despite having half as many models to paint, I seem to have been soundly beaten by Kraken for completing Dwarf King's Quest, Infernal Crypts, Tyrant of Halpi and Return of Valandor.

Not that it's a race. Certainly not a close one.

But Warlord of Galahir? With almost 500 greenskins under my belt, I flatter myself as the WoffBoot's leading goblinophile and I couldn't hold up my pointy nose if I wasn't first to finish that set.

Time Commanders - Resurrected!

The most popular post (over 4 views!) of our humble blog is the one that references War Games on The Telly (nice to see those hours of painting eyeballs is going unappreciated).

So when I saw the series had been revived after a decade, I thought I'd take another look at Time Commanders!

I said TIME, damnit!
