By Kessler in Sarvikuhord 1I bought some savage orruks and savage boarboys. However, I like the forward charging posture of ordinary orruk boarboys much more, so I got some orruk boarboy bits and tried to convert/kitbash. Now I got 5 converted savage boarboys and 5 normal savages.
I replaced the body and legs. I didn't mind the metal parts, I want to make most savage orruks' weapons rusted metal instead of stone anyway. However, thay look a bit too much like normal orruks, regardless of heads and weapons/shields, so I probably paint the metal armor to worn leather and try to greenstuff chain mail parts to fur. Hopefully then they look more like savages.
By Randroid in Drinkin' and Modelin' - Gaming and Beer 0It has been a slow week of painting and a busy week for basing and terrain building. But... I promised something special... and it's time to deliver the goods! Behold! The first of what will hopefully be a decent sized force dedicated to Malal!! Building something I can use in AoS28 for fun.
This Priestess/Sorceress of Malal was a lot of fun to paint. I'm working on a gritty/grimy look with plenty of contrast and I think this mini fits the bill. I've added a larger base (from 25 to 35mm) but otherwise I call it done! More worshippers of Malal are in the works... coming from the shadows near you soon...
In other Chaos news check out these massive slugs! They will be used as Beasts of Nurgle.
Coming to eat your cabbages These guys are really gross looking though it's kind of hard to tell from this photo. I added a few boils/blisters/eyeballs to the back of their heads as well. And while we're talking about Nurgle here are a few Chaos Knights!
Lots of small modifications here mostly in the heads and bodies. I put them on a 40mm base which is probably too small but I like the look of it. If it drives me or my opponents crazy I will stick them on a 50mm base later on.
And what update with Chaos would be complete without a bit of Khorne?
Two more Heroes join the fray (of unpainted by black shiny primed miniatures for the Bloodbound/Mortal Khorne)! I can't wait to paint up the Lord on Juggernaut. Really cool mini and the Slaughterpriest is a good looking one too.
Next week expect more Chaos or maybe I'll sneak in a few more Dwarves instead. You can never have too many Dwarfs.

Dark Horse Brewing Company - Crooked Theratree Black Ale
Beer Type: American Black Ale - 8.50% ABV
Appearance: Label is a variation on the classic Crooked Tree only dressed as a therapist. Beer pours a jet black color with a decent tan/light brown head. Looks more like a porter.
Smell: Roasted coffee malt, something a bit piney/resinous, and in general just really good smelling.
First Drink: Rich flavor with a lot of roasted malt and grain coming through right away. Hops kicks in more towards the end with a pleasing bitter finish.
Mouthfeel: Smooth medium bodied brew with nice carbonation.
Last Drink: The lighter citrus hops come through a bit clearer now.
Drinkability: This is a balanced black ale and you can't really taste the higher ABV.
Notes: Not sure how widely this is available as it was a limited IPA sampler selection.
Verdict: 4.25 out of 5. A nice departure from other black IPA/ales out there.
By Sazel in The Everbruise Tribe - The GuhNawBlahg Continues! 2Finally, after a few months of on-and-off painting, I completed my Burna Bommer for my Orks!
Here she is, Da Fyrbyrd! (Pronounced "Firebird" since they can't spell of course lol)
I can't get the lighting right, and it always seems to highlight any painting spots I miss, but still, I wanted to show off my longest timed paint project thus far.
Vroom vroom! It's a pitiful paintjob, but it's done! That's what counts. lol
I'll probably continue to do touch-up work on it. But, for now, it's officially the largest model that I've completely painted. Also my first vehicle. And first plane.
So yeah, now to find a game where my opponent will be willing to face off against a flyer, as it seems not many people like to play against them, even though people love bringing Knights in my meta... I dunno, I think if you bring a flyer or a Knight, you'd be allowed to field a flyer or a Knight, right? I mean, they're not exactly equal in purpose, but each of the model types definitely change the overall flow and strategy of the battle, so I think it'd be only fair, right?
Alright, back to painting more foot-sloggin' Boyz, maybe I'll have a battle report or some more paint for my next entry...
By Gareth in Stronghold News 0This competition will focus on sharing our cunnin' Warbossy knowledge of the Destruction warscrolls - all 102 of them! - in an effort to collectively build a great resource for the Destruction player community.
There are two prizes up for grabs - a Destruction faction battletome and a Destruction faction 'Start Collecting' box
To enter for a chance to win either of these prizes, simply post one or more reviews or tactical tips in the comments section of any Destruction warscroll listed within the Warscrolls section of the Stronghold.
In 4 weeks time, if every warscroll has a review, one lucky member will be drawn from all those who've entered to win the Destruction Start Collecting box of their choosing (you'll get an entry for each review). If by the end of the 4 weeks there's a warscroll yet to receive a review, the competition will continue until that's no longer the case!
In addition, once all warscrolls have been reviewed, the community will vote for the Stronghold member they believe has shared the most cunnin' advice of all - someone truly deserving of the Warscrollz Warboss title! This wise tactician will be awarded with a Destruction battletome of their choosing.
Get brainstormin' and good luck!
Psst! If you've already reviewed a warscroll in the past, you're automatically entered into this competition
By Randroid in Drinkin' and Modelin' - Gaming and Beer 0Well I didn't get this update up last week but here is the mini for week 6.... another Dwarf adventurer!
I don't have a name for this fella yet. He looks like a miner/self sufficient type individual. I imagine him being a bit of a loner who teams up with others when duty calls. Happy overall with how he turned out.
And while I didn't paint any other minis I did spend a bit of time completing my bits extension version of three Blightkings! Here they are in their WIP state.
Quick group shot!
Some kind of snail butt monstrosity
His buddy is more of a waddler
And here's Mr. fly faced ogor shoes! While they didn't turn out quite as cool looking as I had imagined (always learning more about how to sculpt well with GS) I think they will fit nicely with my other minis. Plus they weren't doing me any good sitting around in a bits box or on a sprue! That means I managed to squeeze 8 (possibly 9) models out of just the one box! Granted I had some other tasty Nurgle bits left over but not a bad little value!
Speaking of bad... picked these guys up cheap to add a bit to and use for Beasts of Nurgle.
It's a giant slug conga line! They look gross enough to avoid already! Later this week I will update with some more WIP of them on bases as well as the next painted mini! Here's a hint... some say there is no malice in Warhammer.
By Lord Elpus in Lord Elpus is painting!! 0And now for something completely different.. SPACE ELVES!!!!! My love of the Eldar faction goes back to Rogue Trader, and seeing them as a new release back in the 80's (Gods I feel old!) so I've had my Eldar army in one form or another for a loooong time... Recently I decided to repaint bases and strip some models as I've not been entirely happy with them: Baharroth: Fuegan:

Blackrocks Brewery - Starman Pale Ale
Beer Type: American Pale Ale - 5.60% ABV
Appearance: Black space art on a shiny can. Beer pours a hazy straw color with plenty of off-white head.
Smell: Not a lot coming out but I can certainly smell a mix of hops.
First Drink: Same as the aroma. Early hit of hops followed by just a bit of sweetness then back into a mellow citrus/hops bitterness to finish.
Mouthfeel: Thinner and crisp. Pretty smooth and easy drinking.
Last Drink: More complexity with the different hops coming through now.
Drinkability: Nice easy drinker for those times when you just want a pale ale.
Notes: Just became available in my neck of the woods but it's brewed way up in the UP eh.
Verdict: 4 out of 5. Blast off into the hops zone.
By SteelStrong in The Music of Destruction 0We continue this series with one of the ultimate Ogre songs. Grinder is a less known track from the British Steel album, released in 1980 by Judas Priest.
The song describes the lonesome journey of a young Ogre Bull, wandering the wasteland searching for revenge and meat.
Been inclined to wander
Off the beaten track
That's where there's thunder
And the wind shouts back
Looking for meat
Wants you to eat
Expelled from his tribe, the Bull enjoys his freedom, as he plunders solitary farms, slaughtering cattle and feeding on whatever wildlife foolish enough to be in his way. He mocks the life of other Ogre's who he see's slaving for the Tyrants and Overlords.
Day of independence
Stamped us like a brand
Round the necks of millions
To the land
As the mighty eagle
I need room to breathe
Witness from the treadmill
I take my leave
Looking for meat
Wants you to eat
He feels he doesn't need a Butcher tell him about the powers of flesh anymore, as he will become a legendary self-taught Butcher himself one day.
