  2. Da Triumvirukk

    Tribe Name: Da Triumvirukk Leader: Morgut, Tuffgit and Bogoff War Cry: WAAAGH!!! Faction: Aleguzzler Gargants, Beastclaw Raiders, Bonesplitterz, Firebellies, Gitmob Grots, Greenskinz, Gutbusters, Ironjawz, Moonclan Grots, Troggoths, Monstrous Arcanum Realm: The Realm of Beasts (Ghur) A new power is rising in the Realm of Beasts... Or more accurately, three new powers! ***** In recent times, the various races infesting The Stronghold, Titan's Toof mountain and the surrounding lands fell into a particularly bloody era of tribal warfare and sneaky backstabbing (with mainly grots indulging in the latter). Three dominant leaders emerged triumphant during the deadly infighting, each favoured by their own kind: Morgut, Overtyrant of The Stronghold Ogors - once Thunderlord of The Stronghold Thunderhorde, he's renowned for his gargant-like strength and insatiable appetite to match, and charges into battle atop a particularly grumpy but utterly loyal hand-reared Stonehorn. Tuffgit, Megaboss of The Stronghold Orruks - the toughest greenskin ever to emerge from Titan's Toof, he loves nothing more than assaulting from the air on his massive red Maw-krusha (red wuns go fasta!) and defeating the largest enemy he can find. Bogoff, Greatgit of The Stronghold Grots - easily the sneakiest, stabbiest, gitiest grot around. What he lacks in size and physical might, he more than makes up for with sheer cunning. The rather vicious Great Cave Squig constantly by his side helps too, of course. For several years, the three races battled one-another under the command of their new leaders, eventually carving out their own piece of the jagged Titan's Toof mountain and The Stronghold within. Morgut took Da East Jagg, Tuffgit took Da West Jagg (though it's often disputed which is which), and beyond the expectations of the ogors and orruks alike, Bogoff and his horde of grots managed to swarm their way into the largest Jagg of all, Da Peak Jagg. However, none the three powerful leaders could land the killing blow against their two rivals. A stalemate was reached, with no side gaining ground on another without exposing their territory to attack from the third side. The Great Green God, Gorkamorka, was pleased. For here was not one, but three honed champions to rampage throughout the Realms in his name. Visions of glorious battles and plentiful loot filled the minds of all three Stronghold races. Furthermore, these visions revealed that the Realms had been repopulating and rebuilding - there were cities to raze! With greedy hearts and minds won, Da Triumvirukk was formed. All three Stronghold leaders are known to be favoured by Gorkamorka - Morgut seen to represent the destructive Fist of Gorkamorka, Tuffit his equally dangerous Uvver Fist, and Bogoff representing Gorkamorka's Kunnin'. Each wields a jagged spear in battle, a display of ownership of the Jaggs that form Titan's Toof. Naturally, a great sense of rivalry still exists between the three champions of Gorkamorka and their followers. The ogors and orruks regularly try to outdo each other, racing into the enemy as quickly as possible in an attempt to achieve the higher number of kills and greater amount of plunder. The grots take a sneakier approach - happier to mostly avoid the dangers of close-quarters combat, and instead favouring to fight at range while their allies face the brunt of the enemy's attacks, then later thieving from the ogors and orruks to increase their own share of the loot... A new golden era of war has begun. The combined forces of Stronghold ogors, orruks and grots are marauding around the Mortal Realms once more - the peoples of the Realms will soon come to know and fear Da Triumvirukk! WAAAGH!!!

  5. Warscrolls Database Updated

    I've updated the warscrolls database here at The Stronghold to include all the recent Destruction warscroll compendium changes. Additionally, I've added some new features - handy download links on the list of warscrolls and recommended base sizes. I've also laid the groundwork to integrate all Destruction battalions in the same warscrolls database - those will be coming soon!

  9. Ted's AoS Destruction Blog

    Wow, I had no idea it had been so long! Well I finally got around to revamping my Destruction Force I've added a Giant spider and spider riders from that awesome boxed set and started putting that spider together like a kid on Christmas, it's been so much fun so far it's great. I've converted it slightly as I want to change the load out game to game so I've made it as easy as possible to interchange between the flinger, shaman and lots of grots. The base though has taken up most of the time as it's inadvertently turned into a little diorama of sorts, I only wanted to put a tree on it :~.... It was at this point I was showing the pics to a friend on mine who kindly asked "is there going to be any water in there? Like a skeleton stuck in the water or something?" to which I replied angrily "well there wasn't going to be!" But hey, a good idea is a good idea so as this is going to be a frosty/snowy base there shall be a frozen skellie... I did go on and finish the majority of the base but no pics yet, I'll post them soon...
  10. Alien Heads of Distant Times Released

    Contact: ofancienttimes (at) gmail.com Out now! Order your alien heads here (or by E-mail). Each kit contain 7 unique alien heads, priced at €7,5 upon release. The style is parodical. Made to fit 28mm miniatures. Part of the fun will be to find suitable bodies for the two larger heads. Cast in whitemetal by Custom Made Miniatures. Pictures of painted heads included for display purposes only. For scale and detail reference, see the original sculpts next to a Mantic Enforcer head: ____________________________________ The infamous stock-market shark was alerted by the approach of the bounty hunter within his cavernous office room, first by various sensor alerts, then by his own ears, which had been artificially grown in vats after that filthy whore bit them off with two nasty bites. He tapped a tiny touchplate on his armrest, and slowly his large padded chair swivelled around to greet the newcomer. It wasn't a pretty sight which lay back in the chair. Extensive synthetic skinplants and cosmetic operations had been carried out to make an old human appear as a young virile stud of man. It had looked genuine the first decade, but since then decay had caught up, and no amount of continuous treatment could any longer mask the faked impression of the skinplants and artificial hair mane. This pretension at style was exquisitely draped. Expensively clothed, but not clothed with style. The entire appearance of the mogul radiated a garish lack of taste. The old money laughed behind his back, and his lack of sophistication and culture made him the open ridicule of high society. Yet the Shark lacked the insight to catch any of this, and did not even understand that he was the one being scoffed and mocked in a thousand and one subtle ways. The loud-mouthed center of cocktail parties and skyglide cruises alike, he was more at home in his office making money with grubby sods than in the feasting places of the ruling elite. And he was more at home in brothels, vapour nests and drinking dens than anywhere else. This time, he received guests clothed, at least, so no one should complain. That wealthy wretch of a man drew a long pull off his smogstick, and took great pleasure in activating the facial microcanals that allowed the lilac smoke to be puffed out of his ears.”Well?” he bayed with an arrogant tone which he himself had never been aware of, but which all in his surroundings were at pains to endure. The long trenchcoat whirled as the the tall bounty hunter snapped to attention. Ceramic-clad highboots clanked together, pistol holsters moved and a long sniper rifle swayed on his back as he pulled off a mock salute under his broad-brimmed leather hat. “Goods. Delivery. As requested,” he growled in a soft, threatening manner which had made the bounty hunter the amorous attraction of girls across seven sectors, and the object of husbandly hatred across just as many. “Well, which one?” barked the stock-market shark impatiently. He had ordered a whole string of expensive heads served on a plate, and was not used to his underlings being so shy with words. It would take years to hunt down all his rivals, defectors and one-time business anchors in alien societies. So, which one of them was it that the bounty hunter had come to deliver? The tall whip of a man stood theatrically still for several moments, building tension and making his client's forehead throb with angry impatience. It had been several seconds already! Then, the bounty hunter opened his spacious trenchcoat and presented his goods hanging from hooks on the inside of the cardio-ferratic fake leather fabric. There were all seven of them. “Take your pick.”

  16. Hi blog. Hi couple of you that read this from time to time. Long time no see. Hope things are going well for you in life. Things are going very well for me and I have been quite busy working on a fun little Goblin team for Blood Bowl. The Greenboyz! Those Blood Bowl fans out there may recognize The Greenboyz from their one appearance in White Dwarf issue #101 with this little snippet: Things weren't going so well for The Greenboyz back in that season but they turned it around for the 2487-2488 season when they managed to crush every team in their way to the championship. What happened you ask? Well nobody really knows... but most everyone is pretty sure it had to do with cheating. The Greenboyz roster from their winning season in 87-88 Earlier this year I was invited to participate in a special kind of Blood Bowl event that focused on the Teams of Legend from Death Zone Season 2. While I wasn't planning on creating and painting a Goblin team when the chance came up to take on the role of Head Coach for The Greenboyz I just couldn't say no! (and it wasn't even because of the copious amounts of ale I was bribed with I swear) And so the construction of this mighty team of legend began with... bunch of shopping and chopping. My goals for the team were: 1. Create a cohesive looking team of Goblins with various model ranges including GW. 2. Show each of the "skills" for the player in a visual way with conversions. 3. Have fun and embrace the Goblin aesthetic of The Greenboyz. I'm pretty sure I achieved all of these goals and more! Once the main body of the team was complete I began work on the pieces I wanted for the sidelines. One of these was very important... a way to represent The Greenboyz constant Fame +2. I chose to model stands full of drunk fans and also build an early Mark I version of "The Monstrous Mangler" - the most impressive secret weapon to ever exist, and ultimately the secret weapon which killed off the triumphant Greenboyz in the year 2492. In my version of this secret weapon the Goblins created a way to drive the actual stadium stands on to the pitch in the ultimate of pitch invasions! Still needed a few more sideline figures like Coaches, Cheerleaders, and the Apothecaries. I managed to get that done as well as the start of the team bus! My vision for the bus was simple and recognizable. A very famous goblin truck... With the added sideline complete it was time for a color scheme. Since The Greenboyz did not have official GW colors from the fluff (unlike most Teams of Legend) I worked up a color scheme that was really focused on both Goblins and the name Greenboyz. GREEN With my test model done I moved on to the massive painting project of all the fans in the stands, the sideline minis, and finally the team. I also managed to bodge up a couple more Goblins for when the stars of The Greenboyz want some back up (or get squashed by other Blood Bowl teams) and to fill up the roster. Next time... what happened at Legends Cup? Where else did The Greenboyz play (hint: it was Chaos Cup)? What is in store for the team moving forward? Check back here for more details Goblin fans!

    I just discovered that Savage Boarboy Maniaks cost 160 points... compared to them, Gruntas` points is a steal.

    Agreed. I played a few games on Monday and with the points decrease they were good! BB

  21. Farmer's Undead

    Four Hexwraiths all ready for some paint: And here's the Hellwraith I repositioned to make more imposing: Conversions are pretty simple – the usual forest basing, and then we have flames green stuffed on the mounts' eyes, robes and some of their snouts. I haven't used the flaming heads yet, probably for the reason that I like the simplicity of the wraiths I've assembled here but I'm wandering whether a last minute head swap could be in order - after all they are a special unit and the flames on these miniatures is one of the most appealing aspects of them... Cheers for taking a look.
  22. Tutorial Subsection to Hobby Forum?

    Chaos Dwarfs Online, being a creative hobby hub from the very start, have a larger hobby section than does most forums. Though it might not be of interest for this site to expand its own hobby forum section to the full extent which CDO has done, it should be apparent that there is something to gain from having a dedicated Tutorial section, i.e. only for tutorials and not for tutorial requests (those would go in M&P general). The ease of finding tutorial resources should not be underestimated in the longer scheme of things. Nurture your forum as a hobby hub, and keep a handy record of tutorials in a way which no Facebook thing ever can do. As for tutorials, would it make sense to have them broken down into the subsections Modelling Tutorials and Painting Tutorials? Would make it even easier to find what one is looking for, especially when the mass of material grows in time. Just an idea.

    The ancient Mesopotamian dispute fable between the palm and the tamarisk trees, written 2000 BC (more here on the importance of gardens in ancient Mesopotamia): The date palm stood for roughly half of southern Mesopotamia's food intake during the Neo-Babylonian empire (grain the other half, more or less), with ill effects for dental health. Dates were a staple food, and destroying your enemies' orchards was a common and heinous way to damage their agricultural economy (Greeks did the same with olive trees, which were sacred to them):

    The rest of the band is now finished.
  26. Braggoth's Beast Hammer in Action

    Actually for me they seemed decent for 140 points. Fast, good save, lots of wounds, consistent damage. Mournfangs' damage potential is much bigger, but so is the chance to do 0 damage.
