Da Wulf Boyz, Display Board

Well I have been a bit burnt out on painting boyz so I thought since I need to keep pressing to get the army done, each day I need to get something done.

So today I did a bunch of work on the display board. I built this one out of the same foam as my other one for my Blood Angels. Which means that it can fit in my modular board in place of hte Blood Angels if I want.

So I painted this one first in black, then it has a dusting of two different greys on it.

Then I added the snow. In the picture I have just added it, and I'll have to wait a few more hours will I can knock off the excess snow. Also in the picture you can see the Ork Mek hut I am building for the board. It'll be painted up like a nice ork building when I am done with it. So here are some shots of it in the modular display board and then some WIP pictures.

Here is a picture of the Blood Angel board in the display board.


Next is a picture of the Blood Angel board out of the display board and the Ork Board in.


So here are some WIP shots of the Ork board.

Hey guys,

For some reason I wasn't able to get access to the Blog but I am glad to see some of the other members were able to get things up. Now I am not sure if I have mentioned it before but I am a Henchman for Wyrd minatures. Which means basically I handle gettting the word out about Malifuax in my local area and try to push what I think is a great game. So with that I have talked my local hobby shop into letting me setting up a demo day to help promote the game.

With that demo day set up now I wanted to paint up another starter set to set up for display on the day. The more painted up models I have to show off I think the better to push the game. People respond to well painted models rather then a batch of bare metal models on the table I think.

So with that I painted up the C.Hoffman starter set for the guild. Here is what they look like.









This is what comes in the starter set. I have put in an order for the Mechanical Assistant which is C.Hoffmans totem as well. I think I'll have to pick up the Peacebringer and I am now really praying Wyrd gets the Mechanical Rider out sooner rather then later.

Korean Konnection 5: You Dirty Rats!

Anyong Haseyo!

I've been back in the land of morning calm for three weeks now. Was I really in Canada at all?

Back to the grind of herding Korean schoolchildren and being mistaken for an American. (not always a bad thing, but you know...)

Only 47 weeks to go!

Played my second game ever with my nicely painted Skaven. Thanks again Bob for a great job! I can't wait until the next wave arrives! (No, seriously, I can't, check out this list, it's insane without some Clanrats...)

~Grey Seer on Screaming Bell, Skavenbrew
~Chieftan, BSB, Banner of the Under-Empire, extra weapon, tail weapon, poison attacks
~Warlock Engineer, lvl 1, Doomrocket
~Deathmaster Snikch
~40 Stormvermin, full command, shields, ratling gun, Razor Banner
~53 Skavenslaves (who look like Celts), pawleader, musician
~6 Rat Ogres, master-bred rat ogre, 3 handlers
~Warp Lightning Cannon
~Warp Lightning Cannon

Opponent was my friend Christian who dusted off his Brettonians...

THE ENTIRE GAME (after deployment):

1. The Brettonians pray, I get first turn.
2. I move my units forward.
3. I attempt to cast Howling Warpgale, dispelled.
4. I attempt to cast The Dreaded 13th Spell, failed.
5. I fire my Doomrocket, 1 Knight falls.
6. I fire my Warp Lightning Cannon, misfire, I narrowly miss clipping 10 Skavenslaves with the Str 10 beam.
7. I fire my Warp Lightning Cannon at his General, his BSB fails his 'look out sir' roll, he and 2 Knights fail their ward save, the BSB takes 5 wounds and dies horribly, he rolls for morale and fails with an '11', the General, his Damsel and the Knights flee off the table.
8. Christian vows never to play Brettonians again.

Good, uh, game?

Well, at least he has this for the journey home. A Crappersaurus?

DE - Kabal of the Deadly Mist - WIP

The Kabal is getting a complete overhaul, all new models a lot of work.

Just something I have been working on, getting the second warrior squad up and built. (tournament this weekend, doubles my Brother (IG) and I)
As well as the court of the Archon, this was fun and let me really stretch my non-used Green-stuff-fu muscles :D
The serpent bodied warrior SSLYTH:(still have to get his 4 arms on him :D, a carbine splinter pistol and cc weapon)
The MEDUSAE, a strange jellyfish-like creature of the webway that gazes at you a la beholder:

20 Games With TK: Tourney Pt2

2 More games to report, the last two from the tournament a weekend ago, (later I will have another game from thursday!)

Game 3 of the tourney saw me pitted up against Lizardmen. I will keep this one short. Mission was blood and glory and I broke his army in 4 turns. I felt slow played and had quite a few arguments with my opponent after a dodgy declare charges phase that included some shady pivots and moves. Needless to say, I won the game, but did not have a good time. The things that worked still, tomb guard were awesome. The light cav pulled some skinks from the main battle line, the colossus exploded after a horrible set of rolling when into some saurus... and the carrion held up an entire flank (20 skinks and a salamander pack).

So, after that sportsmanship disaster I went on to have the best game I had all day, against who? Another fellow tomb king! His list:

2 Kings
3 lv 2's
2 units of 45 archers
warsphynx and 2 colossi.

All in all highlights from this game were:
My casket was awesome, killed his warsphynx and pulled a lot of his dispel dice. My bows peppered away one colossus while the other exploded against the HW/Sh skeletons. The TG rocked one unit of bowmen in the center and killed all the characters within 3 priests and a king... My light horse went up against his casket and won. At the end all I had lost was the HW/Sh skellies and the prince that ran with them. All he had left was the remainder of 45 archers and a king (blade of antarak).

We had tonnes of fun, and my opponent was very keen to mold his army up more in tune to the style that I was playing :D.

So, that was the tournament, I placed 9th out of 11... But did learn a lot. As soon as I got home I built another 50 skeleton spearmen and went about building a 2500pt list with all the tactical changes and knowledge that I had gathered from the tournament.

I was able to take all this to the table on thursday, when I got to play 2500pts... who did I play? Dwarfs. So I was up for a tough game. On my next post I shall discuss my list, his list and the mission we played as well as other notes.

20 Games With TK: Tourney Pt1

Ok, so.

Game 1: Against VC. His list, from memory:
400+ pt lord vamp (nasty nasty)
Vamp with book.

30+ Graveguard
4 units of ghouls

And thats about it. A very in my face army, the ghoul units varied in size but were about 25-30 strong.

We played the diagonal deployment battle with a modified tower "king of the hill" scenario. I had my chariots in reserve he had everything on the table. He had 2 units of ghouls and book vamp on to my left, facing the skelly horde with prince. And then the other two units of ghouls and graveguard deathstar on the right side.

Anyway the game started well for me, with turn 1-3 going my way. until I charged the TG into the graveguard! And found out that that unit had an 8 combat res standing still :O. +1 for each vamp (gen and BSB), then BSB with a warbanner, and a standard and 3 ranks! So my TG lasted for a bit... but ended all dying. It was in this case that I wished I would have kept the BoUL on the TG... because the combat was away from the support of the priests... I also made the mistake of going into horde with my TG... but then he did the same to get more GG attacks.
On the far flank, suprisingly I had my colossus and carrio tie up a large unit of ghouls for about 6 rounds of combat...
On the other side I had 5 horse archers tie up another unit of ghouls until the chariots charged in and wiped them out.

In the end he had 3 units to my 2 units within 6 inches of the building in the middle, and he took the primary, secondary was to win by 300vp... and he had that ( I had only been able to get one unit of ghouls! (my TK almost killed the uber vamp, and I was unable to KB the BSB after all those rounds of combat :(.)

So a sound loss, to the TK.

Game 2: VS Dwarfs, gun line... his list:
BSB Thane
20 HW/Sh warriors
20 GW Warriors

2 x 10 handgunners
2x 10 crosbowmen
2 x grudgethrowers
2x cannon
2x bolt throwers

Mission was dawn attack. He had most of his things in the middle and to my left.

I scouted the horse archers to the right, the TG in the middle deployed in two lines to mitigate fire and the other units on the right...
This mission was me moving up and him shooting... the casket was great this game! Killing dwarves left and right... the LH and carrion got into the backfield and tied up the warmachines... But turn 3 it all changed! i charged my colossus into the handgunners up front... and killed them, overrunning into the lords HW/sh unit... the lord had the rune of double str against tough opponents... so my giant died horribly! He then proceeded to take out my prince with the 40 skeletons... The TG failed a key charge on a double one... and were unable to make an impact on the game. regardless... It was quite the game untill my hiero then died... killing the carrion and the horse archers to crumble and then the catapult.

This is what I took away from that-
- Make the hiero bunker bigger... so that there is always 5 R&F models for LOS.
- once again the BoUL was missed, the TG usually stray away from the main bubble.

So, two losses under my belt and I went into round 3 after lunch. My opponent? Lizardmen, finally a matchup that I have played before... sadly my worst opponent of the day.
