Warlord of Galahir: Knock Knock

Fresh from our success in Dwarf King's Quest, we return to our Warlord of Galahir campaign.


Our next mission: rescue Pietor the Merchant!

(my secondary mission: paint up a model to represent Pietor the Merchant)

(And the doors. Right?)

Dwarf King's Quest: The Last Word

The battle reports are done, but we still haven't tapped out the well of WoffBoot XI

I apologise for the nature of these photographs. The hour was late, and there may have been beers.

With all the players in the same country for once, we finally play the epic conclusion to Dwarf King's Quest: Only One Gets Out Alive!

WoffBoot XI: Disciples of Tzeentch vs Nighthaunt

My fifth and final game of the WoffBoot. I'm out of the top positions for sure, but a win might just nudge me over the halfway mark


Standing in my way: ghosties and ghoulies and a long-armed beastie - the Nighthaunts have come out to play!

WoffBoot XI: Disciples of Tzeentch vs Stormcast Eternals (again!)

Four games into the WoffBoot tournament, and my winning streak went down the Escalation escalator.



But here comes a chance at redemption - a Border War scenario against another Stormcast army!

WoffBoot XI: Disciples of Tzeentch vs Ironjawz

Game 3 and my coalition of chaos faces an Ironjawz army.


Specifically, it's my Ironjawz army, so how could I go wrong?

WoffBoot XI: Disciples of Tzeentch vs Stormcast Eternals

A new dawn rises over the WoffBoot, and I play my second game of the tournament.

Age of Sigmar Battle Report: "Blood And Glory" - Disciples of Tzeentch vs Stormcast Eternals.

I take on the good guys in Blood And Glory: here come the Stormcast!

WoffBoot XI: Disciples of Tzeentch vs Nurgle Rotbringers

The dust settles on another WoffBoot, and while the results are there for all to see, that doesn't tell the whole story. So settle in for the first of my five battle reports.

Age of Sigmar Battle Report: "Take And Hold" - Disciples of Tzeentch vs Nurgle Rotbringers.

It's a Tzeentch vs Nurgle grudge match!

General Kraken Licks His Wounds



Image result for disastrous battles

My Woffboot XI - let's just make it clear now, that if you're looking for tales of derring do and splendour in battle, you won't be finding them here.

ArchaOne for the Road


On my way to this year's 'Boot, I had some spare time at the airport. So I thought 'why not get some painting done?'

Swirly, Curly, Glowy, Killme

The Silver Tower is a maze of madness, a seemingly-endless journey into mind-boiling insanity...

Ogroid Thaumaturge, Warhammer Quest Silver Tower and Warhammer Age of Sigmar.

And to replicate the experience, GW have kindly given us the Ogroid Thaumaturge!

Gork, Mork and Pork!

We've had Chaos for the last few updates, but there's still one more Ironjawz unit to get battle-ready.

Ironjawz Gore-Grunta with pig iron choppa for Warhammer Age of Sigmar
Gore-Gruntas! 

Even in Age of Sigmar, I can't kick the pig habit.

The Future's not Orange


You must have heard by now. There's a new 40K coming.

Chimera! (not the troop carrier)

I continue my 2017 monster mash (2 down, 3 to go) with the mish-mashiest of them all - the Chimera!

Chimera, Chaos Monster, Warhammer Age of Sigmar
"What do you mean?! - You snore! - Oh I don't- anyway, you have bad breath! -
Because you never brush my teeth! - Oh, stop quickly, let's have a cup of tea!"

Which it not, as I once thought, pronounced 'Shim-era'. It is actually 'Ky-mere-ah', and so would more helpfully start with a 'K'. Actually, being a classical Greek monster, it doesn't even start with a 'C', but with the letter 'Chi', which is really the letter 'X'.

Classic Greek is confusing. No wonder Gerald Butler seemed so angry.

Yellow Brick Foes

In all of our Skype battles, I'll bet that Chaos Warriors get proxied more than any other unit. Well - no more!

Slaves to Darkness Chaos Warrior, Warhammer Age of Sigmar

Let's take at look at these models that I'm sure you've never seen before!*

'Core Unit


Fielding Warriors of Chaos is rather like leading the Labour Party. There's always problems with the leadership.

A Shaman And His 'Spolding Staff

The Weirdnob Shaman - I finally get to paint an Ironjaw without any old iron!

Oh, I wouldn't give ya tuppence for ya old watch chain...

Waaagh! are we waiting for?

Et Tu Brute

The Ironjawz Waaagh! continues apace, and I can tick the second unit of Brutes from my checklist.

All Aboard The Megaboss

With little more than a week until WoffBoot XI, I'd better get cracking and finish at least one of the two armies I'm bringing.

Let's start with the Megaboss!

Shut up Google Images, you know what I mean.
