So in the last few months, I've fallen into the usual trap of getting distracted - by new shiny releases, old rediscovered projects, etc. As a result I've fallen behind in what I'm meant to be focusing on - a new Destruction army for this year's 6 Nations in Scotland, and finishing off my Golden Demon entries in Warhammer Fest in May.
Oh - and regularly updating this blog. I think I can probably file that under "never gonna happen"
So - to business!
With Golden demon just under a month away I've been furiously painting, trying to get entries ready for the big day. I've a few WIP images but i'll share those at a later date, once the competition is over - as only some are AOS related they may not interest the vast majority of readers here
However, on the new army side of things I can show off some images.
For this year's Six Nations in scotland, I've decided to shelve my flesh eaters, and build up a destruction army. In case you're not aware, one of the rules is that each team needs to bring a minimum of 1 grand allegiance each. In our local scene there arent many destruction playser, so I decided that I'd take the initiative and build up an Ogor army, using my old 8th ed army as a basis.
I always liked the ogors as an army. The relatively low model count allows me to go all out with conversions, freehand details, etc. I also liked the idea of building an army that wasn't seen everywhere. I've never counted myself as being overly "competitive" so building a cool themed army was more important to me.
The rough concept I'm working with is a roaming tribe of ogors on the plains of Ghur. I'm gonna lean into the tribal motif, so tribal tattoos, shamanic masks, etc.
The list is built around the gutbuster wartribe batallion
As it stands, the list is as follows:
Butcher (140) - Artefact : Collar of Domination
Tyrant (160) - General - Command Trait : Might is Right - Great Gutgouger - Artefact : Battered Talisman Units
9 x Ironguts (600)
3 x Ogors (120) -Ogor Clubs or Blades with Iron Fists
6 x Leadbelchers (280)
12 x Ogors (400) -Ogor Clubs or Blades with Iron Fists
6 x Ogors (240) -Ogor Clubs or Blades with Iron Fists
Gutbuster Wartribe (60)
Total: 2000/ 2000
I'm playing around with using the old Bragg the Gutsman model as a tyrant, converted to have a Baron Samedi feel - complete with battered top hat!
I'll try and keep some updates of how the army looks as i finish off units. For now, the aim is to get everything built and on the right bases. For more up to date entries check out my instagram page @brush_lickers_anonymous
