Hi Ho, Hi Ho, It's Off To War We Go

Greetings fellow plague-sheltering nerds. We have been training for these days all our lives. Those others merely adopted social isolation, we were born to it ... Ahem. Sorry, different meeting. In what feels like another eternity we had the first bouts of the Border Princes campaign. As part of that we had a serious week of painting where I went... a bit mad. Sadly I was at that time car-less so left all my cases at Charlie's to avoid carrying them on the train again (thanks Charlie!). Having been recently reunited with them I can finally, finally photograph the fruits of my stunty labours: Behold, the Deep Road Wardens

Cobalt Scions hellblasters

It has been a month and a half since I posted my captain , and with him, a preposterously in-depth presentation of my Ultraboi successors the Cobalt Scions . What have I done in the subsequent six weeks? Painted five plasma lads, that's what.

Mutalith Vortex Beast

If you are thinking "What the hell is that?" you would be having an appropirate response to seeing the Mutalith Vortex Beast for the first time. The Mutalith Vortex Beast, or Gribbles as I've taken to calling it, is a support unit for the Thousand Sons. It is described in the codex as "an utter abomination of nature. It is a terrifying fusion of monster and magic, a creature mutated beyond all reason by the power of Chaos." Which sounds fun right?

Trust ya Guts

I like my Ogres... I've really been enjoying playing my Ogres recently. As you will know I have a rather large Undead collection: 5427 points according to my spreadsheet. This is by all measures my main army for WFB. However, the little Orge army that I started way way waaaaay back in 2014 ( The Onefinger Tribe ) has grown on me. It's also grown to a rather nice 2000 points with the addition of this lastest unit. A decent sized game of Fantasy is around the 2000 points mark, in my opinion. Enough units to give some tactical choices but not to big that it becomes exhausting. Anyway, I've kinda fallen for these big guys. I like they way they play, solid, reliable, and a not overwhelming set of special rules. It's also because of the sheer amount of charm I've managed to inject into them. You could argue you can give any warhammer unit character, and I would agree with you, but I've just seemed found something that sits well with me.
