The Dwarves, Abridged - IV

Grudges, grudges. So many grudges, so little time.

A Short History of the Dwarves - II

Look for the Silver Mining

Part two of a blogged description of my first Total War: Warhammer campaign, playing as the Dwarfs!

The grudge has been called, the grobi scum must die. Fight time!

A Short History of the Dwarven Kingdoms - I

Total Warhammer!

Finally, after what seemed like the whole of my adult life, the computer game adaptation of Fantasy battles 8th ed has arrived. Painting commissions have netted me the High King edition, that comes with a whole bunch of bonus nonsense. So sitting next to my faux pewter Dwarven Tankard and wearing a Grudge Ring on a leather thong round my neck, I immediately got stuck in.

Woffboot X - While You Were Sleeping

No good Woffboot would be complete without a long, whisky-fuelled discussion stretching on until the early morning.

WoffBoot X - Stormcast vs Chaos Alliance: No Stopping The Sigmartrain!

The dust had settled on our first battle, but now Generals Kasfunatu and East were looking interested in trying a game. And, after all, it was only midnight...

Age of Sigmar battle report: Breakthrough scenario between Stormcast Eternals and Chaos Grand Alliance.
... and the full moon was out.

(So this will be more of a narrative report, rather than a turn-by-turn. I was chiefly occupied with keeping myself topped up with caffeine, so could do little more than take photos, rather than more detailed notes)

WoffBoot X - Chaos Beasts vs Stormcast: The Longest Day

WoffBoot X was always going to be Star Wars-themed (we had the new film to watch in the evening, a Rebellion board game, about 50 X-wing models and a marbletop kitchen counter that looked like a starfield).

Age of Sigmar battle report: Pre-Emptive Strike scenario between Stormcast Eternals and Beasts of Chaos.

But it wouldn't be right not to roll some Warhammer dice. So General Leofa brought out his three-basecoat Stormcast to face my Beasts of Chaos.

Never Mind The Whys and Wereofor

I finally lost my Mierce Miniatures cherry! It's Broga, the Wereofor Thegn, no less - because I guess 'Pigman' is too difficult to spell.

A painting update for Mierce Miniatures Broga, Wereofor Thegn.
With tusks like a Dick Dastardly moustache.

Let's wrap up this Chaos Beasts army!

Gor Blimey!

Is it me, or have we been overwhelmed with Gor recently? Well, they are core, so here's some more. Some more core Gor.

A painting update for Beastmen Gor for Age of Sigmar, Realm of Ghur.

My first 'horde-level' post, painting like a Kraken!

Let Slip The Hogs Of War!

I want to expand the menagerie of my Chaos beasts, and since Bestigor and Ungor are the same genus as my existing Gor, it's time to bring on the piggies!

A painting and conversion update for Razorgor for Warhammer Age of Sigmar.
Hakuna Matata!

X-Wing: Original Trilogy

Want to spice up your X-life?
Try a three-way!

For all you Fett-Solo-Calrissian shippers out there.

Squadron Leaders Kraken, Kasfunatu and myself (I'm Stylus, how do you do?) were all free for a Skype battle one evening, and so we decided to try our a three-player scenario (I believe it was a modified version of "Mission 12: Bounty Hunt").

We decided (hello, Kraken here) to limit our points a little, just to keep things quick and nasty. To add to this, Bounty Hunt had some special bonuses we could use, one-offs, to give a ship various short-lived abilities like 'shoot before everyone regardless'. I forget when and where they were used, later on, but they were both potent and entertaining to use. 

This is Kas reporting for duty. I'm not sure they added to the game and I know we played them wrong - which was more my fault than anything of not explaining when they should be played - we all played the same, but they weren't as tactical or reactionary as they could have been. 

70pts each, Scum vs Empire vs Rebels - let's take to the skies!

Morghur The Shadowgrave, Master of Skulls, The Corrupter

Or, as his friends know him, Bernard.

A conversion for Morghur, Master of Skulls for Warhammer Age of Sigmar.
"Hey, I didn't graduate Shadowgrave academy to be called 'Bernard'"

The Deepwood Clans

Army finished! So time for a quick full army shot.

See y'all at the 'Boot this coming weekend!

Spawn Again!

As is traditional in the week leading up to the WoffBoot, there'll be quite a few painting updates as we scramble to get our armies tabletop-ready.

I've got around 50 models in varying states of readiness on the painting table, so I'd better knuckle down and finish some off. Unlike the chap below, I've only got one pair of hands...

Converted Chaos Spawn for Warhammer Fantasy Beastmen and Age of Sigmar.

Where's the Beef?

Gor, that was a lot of painting this week. I need a cocktail. Bartender! Make mine a taur one!

Taunk Shock

You've seen this tank before. Or it's seen you...

The Silver Age

You may have noticed that the new Warhammer Quest game, Silver Tower, is available from GW today.


No? That's news to you? Why in all the hells are you reading this obscure website then, get over to somewhere more mainstream and choke yourself gluttonously on the news feed!

EXT: A Tree

Yep, it's a tree.

Om Nom Nom ... Zom

We return to Dungeon Saga - and the poor adventurers have been stuck down there for more than three months (hope they brought sandwiches).

Dungeonmaster Kraken read us a redacted prologue (avoiding Mantic's spoilerific flavour text), but with four missions left and three bad guys remaining, it wasn't hard to guess who was next up to bat.

Turns out I have actually met the guy who writes some of their flavour text, so I shouldn't really badmouth it. But come on, guys, a little suspense wouldn't go amiss now and again, would it? 'And next you will fight a zombie troll shaman!' kind of gives the heroes time to plan their approach in my book.

Zombie Troll Shamans: the original night watchmen

Away we go!

Just Gors 2: Nurse! The Gors!

Back to the Beastmen. If I keep swapping genres like this, I'll get culture shock.
