About Me

Hi Folks, I've been playing Warhammer Fantasy from early days, although have just gotten back into it after being absent for a number of years. This blog is to record thoughts and experiences from amongst myself and friends. Personally, I am currently working on Orcs & Gobbos and also have High Elves, Skaven and a few Warriors of Chaos. Amongst the other chaps we have every other army covered. We are not die-hard competition gamers, but enjoy the game for the social aspect as well as the hobby side of collecting and painting.

2000 Orcs vs Orcs :)

Dangit if I haven't lost my notes to this game. Anyhoo I'll post some pics and remeber what I can. A very good mate of mine and I had a pitched battle or Greenskins vs Greenskins.

Points of note - first time out for my big spider. I was all excited until I saw a rock lobber and three bolt throwers :\. The rest of the units are as they appear. My BO Warboss was mounted on a boar in with some night gobbos - - note to self, don't do this again as he can't move through the unit ><. 1st round saw his rock lobber smack the Spider for 6 wounds...ouch. It did, however, last two more rounds before the artillery took its toll. His wolf boys run up one flank and everything else on both sides just marched forward.

The long and the short of it: Spider dies. My Black Orcs crunch his middle and head towards his artillery. Night gobbos survive a flank charge from his giant, which is wiped out by a pump wagon (giggles). His general (with +3A sword) wipe out my entire unit of SO Boar Boyz (that was actually pretty funny). I mop some stuff up and stay away from his General's unit long enough to come off with a win.
Lessons: Big spider means big target :P, but can't wait to roll it out again and see if it can actually do something. Careful where you put your fighty blokes - my General did bugger all in hand to hand cause he couldn't move through his unit. Pump wagons are fun :).

Warboss on Boar Finished

I wanted a Warboss on a Boar so grabbed the finecast model....and boy was that a task! Assembling it what rather painful as the fit of the various pieces really was quite teriible. Anyhow, I guess it's ok...a bit rushed like most of my stuff (I need to stop looking at the pile I have left to paint lol).

Queenie Spider Finished

A fun model to paint but I don't really like how it ended up. I need to keep reminding myself about thinning out paint...... :).

Still, I love the model. And I have another one tucked away to try and get a better result with :).

Black Orc BSB

I needed to do a Black Orc BSB so thought I'd try to have the various troop types I use incorporated into the standard. The result is so-so.....took some time to convince a spider to assist and add real spider silk :P.

Air brushing

Ok folks, so I have decided to take the plunge, get a bit more serious with the painting and invest in an airbrush and compressor. A couple of kind gents from work have loaned me thier airbrushes to try them out, however if anyone else has feedback on particular types/brands of equipment it would be much appreciated.

Well I finally got to have a game last night against a good mate. My second under the new rules :P.

My army was as follows:
