Never check your bitz box

Never check your bitz box

Did some tidying last night after getting home from the club and pulled out my box of unpainted models, most of them anyway, and got a shock when I saw just how many there were.

Battle Report – High Elves vs. Orcs

Battle Report – High Elves vs. Orcs

Now for something very different a battle report from a guest blogger – in this case my mate Adam who took my place, and my High Elf army, at a recent WHFB campaign tournament after I had to withdraw for personal reasons. He not only took my army down to Wellington for me, but competed extremely well and has kindly started writing up reports on all of his games to boot. Deployment – Orcs Deployment – High Elves My plan with this deployment, was to use the forest on the left, as a way to split the orc army into manageable sections, namely where the leadership of the general and with the BSB was out of reach. So I put the lions and Dragon Princes (DP) to hold the left flank. In the middle I would use shooting to take out the chariots and mangler squigs depending on which posed the greatest threat at the time. Then the eagle on the right flank would take out the rock lobber, using the cover of the building and the forest to make without being shot to pieces. The spells for the archmage in this game were:Dwellers below; Flesh to Stone; Throne of Vines; Shield of Thorns; and Regrowth. The objective for the mage was then to focus on eliminating anything left behind after shooting in order to make sure there were no support units interfering in the big combats with the spearman or phoenix versus the savage orcs and big orc unit. High Elf Turn 1 -The DP charged the wolf goblin riders who elected to flee, while the rest of the army moved up. In the magic phase both throne of vines and flesh to stone were dispelled, with the archers only causing one wound on the mangler squig on the right

Da Speshul ‘Eadz!

Da Speshul ‘Eadz!

See what I did thar? ;P This is my unit of (for now) Savage Orc Big ‘Uns, although I have yet to use them as their bigger equivalent in an actual game. The Big Stabba is there just because it looks so friggin’ cool and just in case I run into something bigger and nastier than my warpaint-covered brawlers. They will be led by a Savage Orc Great Shaman with the Lucky Shrunken Head for a 5+ warpaint ward save and there will possibly be a Black Orc BSB which will be using a Savage Orc model!I’m really likin’ the unit champion guy in the middle – he looks scary and killy enuff! NB #1: This may sound VERY stupid, but I don’t know if it was just me, my luck, the humidity, the way the planets were aligned or the plastic glue I was using but.. I had to pin every hand to every arm ! First of all, the weapons these guys are carrying are 'uuuuge and 'eavy and there's no way they are going to stay in one place while you are gluing them. Gravity simply doesn't work that way, which suck. That, and for some reason my plastic glue (New GW bottle, which I think is pretty sweet!) was taking forever to dry/glue ONLY on the Savage Orcs.. It was incredibly frustrating and I'm really now looking forward to repeating this process on ~30 more guys.

Fimir – Hooded Fimir Champion Assembled

Fimir – Hooded Fimir Champion Assembled

Here’s the assembled fimm. The tail worked out better than I expected, it fit as if made for the task, right in the savage orc’s naked ass. Also, I have to say, I love how the arms fit the shoulders, it’s a great solution to multi-part models with no cloth or armour to hide the join. I had a bit of trouble picking the left-hand weapon. I went through about six hands, and finally settled on the small shield, which doesn’t upset the pose as much as the second hand weapon I was going to use. A little filing, and he’s onto the painting table!

Dreadknight – The Sprue Review

Dreadknight  – The Sprue Review

Much like my review of the Savage orcs and The Aracnaspideryhugethingy…something, this article will make clear my opinions on the new Dreadknight model at a glance. Please be aware that unlike the Savage orcs where I built the whole kit the popularity of this model (and the others in the black box which I will talk about in tomorrows post) ment that I only got to clean and build a portion of the kit however I did take notes on the entire process as well as ask other hobbyists opinions on it (including the GW store Manager). Dreadknight Model Breakdown Sprue First Glance Even whilst it was still on the sprue it was clear to see that this model was extremely dramatic and very big, which is great for those of you impressed by size alone. Myself I thought the sprue seemed a little cluttered and as such most of the parts were difficult to remove without damaging them, after a bit we gave up using sprue cutters and resorted to slicing them out with a craft knife which proved much more effective. Production Quality Although I can’t say the model was as clean as the giant spider model, any faults were not obvious immediately upon viewing the sprues which is similar to my High Elf Phoenix Guard kit. Put simply on some of the smooth surfaces I could see deep wavy lines across some of the smooth surfaces e.g. legplates, that when primered become extremely visible. Although incredibly easy to remove it’s frustrating that you end up wasting paint on the kit only to have to clean it and spray it again but this kit is not the first to have this fault and I also believe it’s just a drying time issue which varies between batches, the model you buy might not have this problem. Building The best way to explain building this model is to use a comparison.

Gathering da Tribez!

Gathering da Tribez!

Yesterday was supposed to be more of an assembly day for my Orcs and Goblins army, but instead a few of the regulars at the store decided to throw down and show me some of the nooks and crannies of Warhammer Fantasy. It was so much fun! It felt good to just Waaaagh around with my orcs, without the pressure of running an optimized, serious list. I was still playing for the win, even though my army is still in the process of crushing some ‘eadz and gathering the tribes.. I was pretty much playing with what I had, plus-minus some extra orc bodies and a proxied Savage Orc Shaman.. HEROES Wartgrin Facemelta – 130 points Level 2 Savage Orc Shaman with Ruby Ring of Ruin CORE Unnamed Savage Orc Boyz – 280 points 25 Savage Orc Boyz with 2x CCW, Big Stabba, Full Command Unnamed Savage Orc Boyz – 235 points 20 Savage Orc Boyz with 2x CCW, Big Stabba, Full Command SPECIAL Da Boared to Deff Boyz – 135 points 5 Savage Orc Boar Boyz with 2x CCW, Full Command RARE Old Greg – 220 points Giant with Warpaint At a 1,000 points this list doesn’t really have a lot of models. I know that fielding a giant in 1,000 is not the smartest move and that only 5 Savage Orc Boar Boyz really don’t pack a mean punch, but it’s what I had at the moment and I learned a whole lot about the different units. My first game was against the store manager, who ran his infamous Skaven. A Skaven Warlock Enginseer, a bare-bones Grey Seer, Hellpit Abomination, a block of Plague Monks with the banner that lets them re-roll To Hit and To Wound once per game and Storm Vermin who had the Banner of the Horned Rat (-1 to Leadership within 12”, re-roll all successful Ld checks). Basically I was outskilled, outclassed in the Magic phase and terrain was an issue for my Boar Boyz..
