  1. Here we go! The first of (at least) 52 miniatures I will paint this year as part of my hobby resolutions. As I was gone out of town the past week I'm playing a bit of catch up with getting these posted here to the blog. I'll try to be more timely moving forward. I dug out my light box and set it up so I could get more consistent/better photos of my work. I think it helps!
     
    First up we have this older GW Nurgle Chaos Warrior of some kind (honestly not sure what edition it is from):

    I built him on a 20mm base and I wish I had gone with a larger (more AoS appropriate) base but oh well. Since I have no idea what I will use him for I suppose it doesn't really matter what the base size is. I painted him roughly in the scheme I used for my Nurgle Daemons and I am happy with hot he turned out. 

     

    Next up is another Nurgle like mini that looks to be more 40k related:

    For this mini I wanted to test out a few color schemes for my Skaven Pestilence force and overall I would say it was successful. I'll likely use this guy on the table in TNT if nothing else as he looks a bit mutant. 

     

    And that's all I have to share this week! Working on a few Dwarves and more Chaos stuff so who knows which will be the first to be completed for the week 3 mini. Only time will tell.

  2. In the last days of 2016 I managed to complete my ogor army, Thundertusk and maneater being my last models painted. I started in March 2016 with my very first model, bought Ogre Battalion box and painted my first ogor in June. Gradually I increased the army with Mournfangs, Maneaters, Frostsabres, Thundertusk and Stonehorn and I managed to finish it within six months. Altogether I now have 9 Ogors (4 bought from ebay before I decided to paint myself), 9 Leadbelchers, 6 Ironguts, Huskard on Thudertusk (and his friend), Frostlord on Stonehorn, 4 Mournfangs, 5 Frostsabres (Fenrision Wolf models), Tyrant (converted), Butcher with cauldron (converted), Hunter (converted), 3 Maneaters (converted).

    My favourite models were definitely Mournfang Pack and Thundertusk/Stonehorn, very dynamic and very enjoyable to paint. I also liked a little conversion work, actually. As for the future I do not know what to do. I would like to paint some more Mournfangs, but I also like Savage Orruks and especially Wurrgog model. But these are very similar to ogors to paint, so maybe I will choose something different - Death or Sylvaneth. Or just make a pause. We'll see.

    And here are some pictures of each unit.

  3. It has been so long... you take one hit of Mudstikks Madcap brew and BAM! 

    So I got to thinking, as long as you get stuck in and bash stuff (whether it's moving or not it doesn't matter) orruks, ogors, grots, even fimir and all we get along right. Since chaos went all mad and broke everything, and then went even madder and turned on itself, their is one faction that's been left out (bar the really new tzeentch weirdos ;)) and that's the beastmen. They like fighting and killin' like us, they're good eaters too, love their meat and setting things on fire, not to mention Gorkamorka is da God of Beasts! So my tribe has opened its bloody arms to the beasties, the thunderskorn and their minotaur monsters, after all is it that hard to imagine our plane smashin' god inspiring some new worshippers? Opinions welcome!

    Pics coming soon of some Gorkamorka worshipping beastmen!

    Decided to try and push myself, and today I finished The Betrayer himself:

    It was nice to get him finished before tomorrow!

  5. So I had my first AoS Tournament!  It was a 1000pts with 4 missions.  Take and Hold, Border War, Blood and Glory and Gift from the heavens in that order.  My list was:-

    1000 pts AOS Gutbuster!

     

    1 Tyrant. (General) Slicers + Ogor pistols. Bellowing Tyrant Battle brew.  160pts

    1 Butcher.  Cleaver, Great cauldron.  140pts

    6 Ogors (Ironfists) 240pts

    3 Lead blechers 160pts

    3 Ironguts 220pts

    1 Gorger 60pts

    Total 980.

     

    Game 1 against Lizardmen commanded by a lovely lady called Bliss.  Roughly she had 3 units of normal Saurus with shields and spears, 1 unit of skinks, 1 unit of cold ones and a formation with 3 units of Saurus guard and the hero that gives extra save to them.

    Generally I went for a minor win here and just focused on keeping my objective while dishing out the pain.

    Basically my ogres and led belchers took the left flank and killed 2 units of Saurus and the cold ones.  The rest of my army held back while the Butcher went to work Mawing :maw: those high save Saurus guard (he killed 2 units of 5!).  My Tyrant and Ironguts charged the right flank along with the gorger killing the last Saurus guard and the heros.  I did loose my guts and Gorger but the Tyrant held firm and firm.  Here's a mid game shot of the Ogre getting stuck in before they ran out of things to kill!

    20161127_103036.jpg

    Game ended with 1 objective each so went to VP's I scored 820 while giving up 280.  Bliss was a great sport and had come to the Tourny with her other half.  She was a little over cautious in my eyes and did not run her troops on the right flank.  Either way a good enjoyable game.  I did have a triumph that I forgot to use as I had less points in my army lol.  Never mind. :D 

     

    Game 2 against Matthew Arnold and his skaven.  He had a warlord and warlock, 2 lightning cannons, 1 warpfire thrower, 2 units of 10 clan rats, and 1 unit of 30 storm vermin.

    I went really aggressive with this game to take the side objectives ASAP he had the big unit of Storm vermin on my right claiming the side objective but nothing going for the left one.  I split my force into 2 again.  Guts, belchers and butcher going to the left and the Tyrant and Ogres for the right.  The really big combat in this game happened in turns 1 and 2!  My Ogres made a long charge on the Storm vermin and had +1 to hit from bellowing Tyrant.  Being on the charge they get re roll 1's to wound.  I proceeded to kill 18 rats!  Ouch!  He did have a triumph for re-roll armour saves and reduce that to only 12.  I lost a few ogres but by then the Tyrant using gut gorger and battle brew went in and doubled up 1 of his attacks killing a further 9 rats on his own! with the ogres finishing the unit off!

    Here's the set and big fight pictures!

    20161127_121328.jpg20161127_121333.jpg20161127_123114.jpg20161127_130322.jpg

    The rest of the battle basically revolved with me keeping the objectives while advancing.  I nearly got his own objective but missed by not killing 1 more model twice.  I took a lot of shooting at this point but it was too late for him and I had racked up the points from objectives taking 16 against his 8 giving me a major victory!  I killed 240pts of cheep rats while conceding 600.  Well happy with this result.  Played the scenario well.  Look out gnoblars are amazing giving me some saves against warp lightning cannons.  Don't forget them on your normal ogres!  Matthew again really great opponent and we had lunch together and had a great chat!  Top bloke!

     

    Game 3 seen me on now the top table (VERY SCARY!) against Rob Bruntons Ironjaws.  He had 1 mega boss, a war chanter, 2 units of 3 goregruntas, and 2 units of 5 brutes.  There was a formation here as well giving them some serious move!  This game was by far the best game.  I waited for and got charged by his Goregruntas first turn loosing a few ogres here and there.  I dropped 1 unit of gruntas that turn and the other went in turn 2 bar 1.  a Particular Highlight was my Butcher casting Maw :maw: and killed the Mega boss outright before he even got half way over the board!  Rob was shocked by the damage output I had here but kept coming.  It boiled down to to the Brutes and what I had left.  Basically if my maw spell had done more damage to the brutes on the left and my Tyrant not failed a 4 inch charge on the right I would have table him!  I lost too many models and he took my objectives winning him a major victory.  All that was left was 4 Brutes (2 in each unit) the war chanter and my Tyrant!  What a blood bath!

    20161127_144647.jpg20161127_145009.jpg20161127_144640.jpg20161127_150819.jpg20161127_150826.jpg

    Destroyed points wise I took 500 while giving up 820.  I was really happy with this game!  Even though I lost it was really close and could have gone either way!  The butcher was really rocking that Maw spell.  I was happy with how I played and just luck of the dice took it's toll on the last turn.  Rob  was a great opponent and was really not expecting the damage out put of my army.  He is a fantastic general though.  (It's worth noting he had just won his last game by objective points while being tabled and not taking any kill points himself which is impressive at any day!)

     

    Game 4 was against fellow club member Ben Chalk and his Beastmen (won Best painted).  He large units of beastmen with a few chariots and characters.  Too many to count.  Basically this game was fairly tame and cautious.  we kept hold of our objectives so it came down to kill points.  In short I score 0 as I could not finish off whole units through good use of retreating and bogging my units down.  Ben took 460 giving him a minor win.

    20161127_164941.jpg

    Felt I could have played this game better in targeting on killing whole units but otherwise a fun game.  Some failed charges saw me loosing out on easy chariot points too.

    20161127_174114.jpg

    Game results above show me towards the lower end.  I came away with 1 major and 1 minor win along with 1 major and minor loss to complete the collection.  It all boiled down to that 3rd game.  If I had won that game I would have been on the top table for the last game which would have been awesome!  General thoughts is I love AoS.  The whole priority roll really changes the dynamics of the game and I find the game flows so much better then 8th edition.

    As for the ogres!  Bellowing Tyrant is amazing and all my units generally did well in dishing the pain (except the gorger lol).  The butcher has to take Ogre of the tourny!  He did soooo much damage with MAW :maw: during all games.  But killing whole units of Saurus guard and mega boss in 1 cast was just awesome!  

    Finally a shout out goes out to David Mcbride who brought his Fyresayer army.  This very friendly and generous gent gave me a lift to and from the tourny which I appreciated greatly.  I look forward to getting a game or two in future with him!

    I hope you enjoy the battle report guys. :) 

     

    Kind regards Zolas

    I have a growing collection of both giants and trolls. The arrival of yet another giant (another plastic one this time) made me want to do something really different, yet coherent. 

    I love my Forgeworld troll Hag dearly, and like to think of her as a smelly mother to my troll babies.

    But the stone trolls just don't look like her kids. 

    So I'll just have to build another, taller and rockier sister to nurture them.

    Got the bit I was missing to complete the build, pretty happy with how it turned out:

  8. Firstly, thanks to everyone who entered, it was fantastic to see all of your great looking minis! :) 

    The votes have been counted and verified, and I can now officially reveal that Belchfist Beastkiller wins the Golden Fist 2016 award with his excellent Orruk Megaboss! :D

    I particularly like the work done with the tribal markings on the armour, the weathered look of the chequered pattern on his mighty axe, the dark green spots down the back of his neck and the colour transition on the shoulder skull. Many congrats Mr. Beastkiller! :D

    In second place is Pentagram Sam with Gordul the Butcher, a great conversion with a notably grimy paint scheme, and an example of what can be achieved with the plastic kits and some creativity! I especially like the rusty, gore-encrusted cleaver as well as the little bird perched on the shield on the Ogor's back :)

    Third place goes to one of the Stronghold's most productive and liked new members since joining us in August this year, Tyberous Khan! I really like the conversion from Orruk rider to Ogor, and he looks particularly fearsome with his twin ice axes. Some great little details here as well, including the bloody hand-print on the skull behind the Ogor and the weathering on the gut-plate. A quality paint job on the big beastie itself too! :)

    As for prizes, each of the top three will receive a free sample set of the upcoming Stronghold dice (once finalised and made available later in the year), and the very first Golden Fist medal is of course awarded to Belchfist Beastkiller! :)

    That's it for the Golden Fist this year - we'll have another painting competition in early 2017, but be sure to keep an eye out for the next (non-painting) Stronghold competition launching this weekend...

    So a few days ago I played my very first games of AOS with my Ironjawz! My opponent for both games was my gaming buddy who is new to the hobby and playing Stormcast.

    The first game we played used my whole Orruk collection (not much - Megaboss, Warchanter, Ardboyz X 10, 3 gore-gruntaz) facing a point equivalent force of his Stormcast (Lord-Celestant on Dracoth, Lord Relictor, 2 X 5 man Liberators and two Retributors (broke the minimum rule). In a straight up fight to the death! 

    The game was great fun! I won with a few lucky rolls and we moved on to our second game...

    image.jpeg

    For this we used the ritual type scenario slightly modified. A sacred Sigmarite relic (a can of chickpeas until I get better scenery!) being desecrated by my Orruks! 

    We had two crossing points for the river and you could jump it but would die on the roll of a 1 (not heroes or monsters) 

    In the photo you can see I used the Gore-Gruntas to block one crossing point and the rest of my units hung back as reactionary forces. 

    I sent the Megaboss out on his own to block the right flank crossing alone (a bad idea for his command ability but that's a lesson learnt!). My friend rolled abysmally for the Stormcast on that side and two perished in a river crossing jump leaving just three for the Megaboss to scythe through easily in one turn. He then made to take out the Lord-relictor who was nearby. 

    With the gore gruntaz - they did very well against the dracoth and lord Celestant (LC) (survived - incredibly!) and took a huge number of wounds off their opponent leaving him with just two wounds! 

    From here the LC regenerated a wound due to the Phoenix stone and the Lord relictor added another two so he was back to a scary prospect at 5 wounds. My Megaboss fluffed his attacks against the relictor and failed to wound him at all(!) and wasn't wounded in return. The Retributors failed a charge and the second unit of liberators leaped the river on my left flank, hoping to have better luck than their brethren. Unfortunately my opponents string of terrible dice rolling continued and he rolled another two 1's leaving a seriously depleted unit of 3 rushing for the relic. 

    In combat the dracoth seemed to wake up, and it and the LC managed to finish of the first gore grunta they had wounded and took out a second, but the third still blocked the crossing. 

    My rolling for the ritual/relic had been SO high and we were now on 17 out of 20. It was at this point I really brought the bulk of my force in to play. The ardboyz and the warchanter charged the combat with the LC on dracoth and the Retributors.

    the Megaboss annihilated the Lord relictor causing 12 unsaved wounds this time(!) which was just insane. I claim it was my paint job 😂. 

    In the big combat my ardboyz rescued the LC to two wounds once again but surprisingly failed to kill him despite a huge number of attacks. He killed only three of them in return in some appalling rolling. The warchanter rolled two sixes as part of his attacks and managed to wound with all 6 attacks! The dracoth was finally toppled! 

    At this point the game was all but over - but we played it out and I wiped up the remaining ones.

    MAN OF THE MATCH: Orruk Megaboss - this guy was insane for his points cost. His damage output was incredible! Very happy!

    CONCLUSION: Orruks are great fun - and my opponent really enjoyed the games against them despite losing both. I've got to say though...I've now won all of our games (7 in total) and I'm thinking I should throw a few to keep his enthusiasm going! I am after all a very experienced player (who is a little competitive when the chips are down) and he is brand new to the hobby and I don't want to lose my gaming buddy 😂. Moral dilemma trouble!! What do you guys and gals think?

  11. Here is an old model I used to love converted over to use in Age of Sigmar. I used him in a game recently and am developing some fluff for him appropriately. 

    I'm most proud of the detail on the staff handle which is all freehand, and the lightning inside the staff. 

    He is accompanied by his familiar (which has no in-game rules anymore - which is annoying!) but I couldn't bear to part with him so I AoS'ed him too! he's coming along for the ride!

  12. Alrighty everyone! I have no idea how many people are reading this thus far, but here's some pictures of the work I put into the Start Collecting! Orks kit.

    The sprawl (don't mind the mess)

    3.jpgThe Painboy!

    5.jpgThe Deff Dread! Waiting to magnetize arms prior to finishing.

    6.jpgDa Nobz! 3 Power Klaws, 2 Big Choppas (one with the boss pole)

    14.jpgDa Boyz! 10 Slugga Boyz, one upgraded to Power Klaw/Bosspole Nob! One in the back waiting for magnets.

    15.jpgClose up of the Nob, for funsies!

    12.jpgAnd finally, saving the best for last, A Warboss!! I took the 'extra' Ork body that was included in the starter kit, and I mashed up the bits from the Nobz and Boyz' kits. So, say hello to Ghort, Da Next in Line, a powerful Warboss right underneath Warlord Khorag Dakkafiend (which will be a normal Warboss model, once I purchase it, but that may be a while yet!)

    18.jpgThe Full Lot! Da Painmob with a Warboss add-on! Now, to finish my Looted Wagon, and I should be sitting at around 750 points overall.

    Alrighty, I will probably post more once I get around to painting, but that may be a few days as I won't have a day off for a while. In the meantime, hope you enjoyed viewing it!

  13. So I recently had my first game of AoS, using the official points and army organisation.

    Here is a little vlog, where I talk all about it! :D

     

     

  14. Okay so I went to a 9th age team tournament last weekend with my ogres, we finished 4th out of 8 teams, so not that bad

    My games were:
    First day
    1º Won 11-9 against ogres, pretty much the same list that I played
    2º Lost 14-6 against another ogre, more combat focussed
    3º Lost 12-8 against Khemri, agreed outcome with the opponent, since my list was kinda useless against his
    Second day
    4º Draw 10-10 against ogres, similar list to mine, I didn't wanted to take any risk since the team only needed me to score a draw
    5º Won 15-5 against high elves, turn 1 to 3 were all hits with my scratapult on his swordmasters, and both eagles were dead on turn 2 also, so GG

    My list:
    Great Shaman: General, Rottenjaw, Lv 4, Alchemy, Talisman of Greater Shielding, Demon Heart. 335
    Khan: BSB, Iron Fist, Yeti Furs, Dragonskin Banner. 195
    Shaman: Lv 1, Fire, Great Weapon, Dispell Scroll. 146
    1x 14 Tribesmen: FCG, Banner of Discipline, Iron Fist, Heavy Armour. 553
    2x 15 Scrapling: Standard Bearer, Short bows. 2x 50
    1x 8 Mercenary Veterans: FCG, Flaming Standard, +1 Ballistic Skill, Poisoned Attacks, Brace of Ogre Pistols. 500
    2x 1 Sabretooth Tigers. 2x 40
    2x 2 Yetis. 2x 80
    2x Thunder Cannon. 2x 150
    1x Scratapult. 130
    Total: 2499

    And now... The (almost) finished boys!

    3 bombardiers and a cannon

  15. So some small progress on my Dunecrawler.  Mostly working on the red paint job.

    Black Undercoat, Khorne red base, Biel-Tan Green shade, Wazdakka red drybrush.  Then On just the weapons so far I have edge highlighed with Evil Sun scarlet.

     

    My current problem is whether I should apply Bloodletter red glaze to brighten it up or not.  Here's some progress pictures followed by a with and without glaze picture.  Tell me what you guys think!  I will add a Poll for you guys to vote on as well so please make a vote I would very much like to know peoples thoughts.

    Kind regards Zolas.
