At the beginning of any endeavor, we always have grandiose plans on what we will do, what we will accomplish, and how great it will turn out. However, the reality often falls short of these idealized plans. Personally, I have found that this is because in the past I have set unrealistic goals for myself. Why do I bring this up? Well, I am getting ready to jump into Warmachine and Hordes with a Slow-Grow/Journeyman League and I have to plan out my army from 15 points to 50 points. In addition, the first 25 points has to be with either a Privateer Press Battle-Box or an alternate approved Battlebox; however, the final 50 points does not have to include these models. So, I am stuck with the
No, I am not leaving 40K. No, I am not quitting 40K. I am taking a hiatus, a break. Now, don't get me wrong, I was all motivated for 6th edition and I find it extremely fun to play. I even painted up 2000 points for the Independent Characters Hobby Challenge. However, interest in the game locally has dramatically waned, to the point it is hard to find a game. Therefore, I have decided that I will take this opportunity to… Read more »

Just wanted to post this really quick. I have made a quick switcheroo at the start of my Warmachine/Hordes endeavor. I just was not feeling the Jacks or Cryx. Don’t get me wrong, I know they are an extremely strong faction, but I like more organic factions; after all, my 40K army is Daemons. As I really didn’t have much in the way of models, it was not a huge change. Plus, I like playing the underdog and from what I can gather, Skorne is considered a bit of an underdog. Anywho, More to come as I start assembling and building my own models! In addition, the web seems to have eaten my two Cryx posts, so I guess it was foreordained!
Purchasing models for a new game while you are still learning how to play it can be a frustrating endeavor. I know that fault lies with me and that I should have
One of the things I truly find interesting about Warmachine and Hordes is the way they have blended genres and types in truly interesting and entertaining fashions. While I was originally drawn to Cryx for the Bane Thralls, the more I read about the faction the more I like the blend of pirates and undead that they have combined to make one combined force. Now, I will be the first one to say undead and pirates? What? However, when you…. Read more »
I am still playing Warhammer 40K and I am still playing my Daemons without allies. I am really enjoying the Flying Monstrous Circus build I have been playing since right after the book released. In addition to the Keeper of Secrets and 2 Daemon Princes pictured above, I have also added a third Daemon Prince, Great Unclean One, Lord of Change, and Fateweaver to the mix. Currently, I am painting up the third Daemon Prince and the Great Unclean One as our escalation league moves into 1750 points. Now, I know the popular choice is the Bloodthirster, and I agree he is full of badassery; however… Read more »
Warmachine and Hordes; this will be my second foray into Warmachine and Hordes. My first foray was a very short three month endeavor about one year ago that resulted in me selling off my Legion of Everblight army.
You read that right, I have not only completed my April Goal for my army, but I have completed the entire 1850 point army. Now, this does not mean I am done, I am still painting up Daemons, but I have painted 1850+ points of Daemons since January. First we will start with a look of my April Commitment and then the whole army. Read more »
Wiser men than I, from a diverse set of backgrounds and occupations have said in one way or another than in order to succeed, in order to be successful, you must evolve and/or adapt in order to stay abreast of change. H.G. Wells said it like this, “adapt or perish, now as ever, is nature's inexorable imperative.” Whether you or I like it, the Chaos Daemons have changed. Gone are the days of Fatecrusher, Flamer/Screamer Spam, or Fearless and Eternal Warrior Cavalry Lists. The new codex has ushered in dynamically different book that plays nothing like its predecessor, in terms of style or even model count. Personally, this has led to dramatic changes with my Old Chaos Daemon Army; the first of which is I am now calling it my Chaos Army…. Read more »
