  1. Ive played a few 500 pt games in a few narrative games and they're okay but I think their really for newbies. I prefer to play 1000pt games as i find you get enough models on the board to have an interesting game without the downside of having 3 frostlord on stonehorns charging in a annihilating you in a turn, as for scenarios i think they work well and in some cases (three places of power) work better at 1000pts imo.
  2. Army - Destruction Month 5 Budget: £69.75 Month 5 Spend: £13.75 Old box of savage orcs. Total Spend: £13.75 Remaining Budget: £56 So month 4 sadly I spent my painting time painting stuff for the blood and glory event which took precedence over my destruction project, so going into month 5 I wanted something simple and easy to paint and savage orcs fit that perfectly, I was planning on doing a savage orc aka bonesplittas army at some point so they will get used. So the aim for month 5 is continue painting the ogors I got last month and paint the savage orcs.... fingers crossed. Though I will have £106 to play with for month 6 I'm thinkin beast claw raiders.
  3. This is my 1000pt list the idea is obvious buff up the grave guard (who have great weapons) with +1 a and give them the ability to attack twice from the necromancer. It's not broken but it is fun there are enough bodies in the army that at 1000pts it does well in most scenarios the only change I would consider is dropping the black Knights for summoning points and give the Wight the command trait to become a wizard .
  4. This is a list that I might be running at blood and glory its based around 2 formations but in short the 3 ghoul kings go around killing stuff heal D3+1 each hero phase and when they die they have the ring of immortality to bring them back to life , there's also 160pts in summoning so I could bring a vargulf on with a command ability or try to summon carn wraiths depending on the scenario. LEADERS Abhorrant Ghoul King on Zombie Dragon (400) - General - Artefact : Ring of Immortality - Command Trait : Red Fury Abhorrant Ghoul King on Zombie Dragon (400) - Artefact : Ring of Immortality Abhorrant Ghoul King on Terrorgheist (400) - Artefact : Ring of Immortality Crypt Ghast Courtier (80) UNITS Crypt Ghouls x 10 (100) Crypt Ghouls x 10 (100) Crypt Ghouls x 10 (100) Crypt Ghouls x 10 (100) BATTALIONS Royal Menagerie (60) Ghoul Patrol (100)
  5. Just finished painting my brutes which I'm not guna lie was a labor of love, I'm currently building some ogres now but I'm having to wait for my 50mm bases to turn up before I can really start painting them.
  6. Army - Destruction Month 4 Budget: £84.75 Month 4 Spend: £65 Ogre battalion box Total Spend: £65 Remaining Budget: £19.75 So for month 4 I'm leaving the ironjawz behind, that's a lie I will still be painting them in between painting ogors. I was lucky enough to buy an ogre battalion box set from my local games workshop which was an awesome bargain so in it I got 6 ogres 6 ironguts and 4 leadbelchers now I find that as I have to pay for 6 leadbelchers if I have 4 I think I'm guna try my hand at converting one of the leadbelchers into a butcher which would round of the ogres nicely as that's 980 points for £65, ill update more when I start working on them properly but I cant see myself adding lots more to the ogres except maybe a tyrant and of course some maneaters but that will have to wait until month 5.
  7. So month 3 was abit hectic with real life so as a result I wasn't able to get as much as I would have liked however I am pleased with how much I was able to do, so I finished my warchanter so now I have 2 heroes and the brutes are almost done just the weapons and bases to do; my second unit of ard boyz are halve way done which if I hadn't spilt my time between units might be further along but hey ho. For month 4 I'm moving on from the ironjawz and going to start working on ogors occasionally coming back to painting the ironjawz elements of the army, anyway here's a parting shot of the army at the end of month 3.
  8. So far this week ive fallen behind on painting the brutes and gore gruntas so im guna aim to get the ard boyz all done, there is good news though I have painted my first warchanter for the army which I really enjoyed painting especially his .... sticks. His base is now fully finished
  9. when is the dead line ?
  10. So far I've managed to stick to my target of getting the brutes built and undercoat everything else. Now for week 2 im aiming at getting the yellow armour done and maybe the skin aswell, doing it bite size pieces is nice.
  11. Army - Destruction Month 2 Budget: £50 Month 2 Spend: £25.50 A box of brutes Total Spend: £25.50 Remaining Budget: £34.75 So month 3 kicks off an I find myself playing catch up month 2 was slow for me so I decided not to spend too much buying a single box of brutes because I love the models and I wanted to buy something. However I have decided to pace myself by setting in my mind a realistic target each week so this week I will aim to get all the models from last month basecoated white and get the brutes assembled. Then next week I will aim to get the main colour yellow done etc.... The main aim for me is to take more pics of my models in progress and do a army pic at the end of the month to show how the force is coming along. Fingers crossed
  12. I was at the warlords event at whw and after the first day I did ask myself is shooting to OP in AOS, I think the kunnin rukk can be silly and very difficult to deal with having said that if and I stress IF you can kill the big boss its worthless in game after that which is why I don't think that battalion is that bad, with that said if you cant kill the big boss i.e. you have no shooting then you will suffer before the game has even begun, to the point where it might not be a game at all. Also I went to the 1 day Alliance event and a very shooty army won the event don't get me wrong the person in question is a very good player but it does make me think whether shooting does need a cap of for example 100 shots a turn. I've played stormcast now since they originally came out and I always put judicators in my army 2 units of 5 with bows because they are so useful to have, when the generals handbook came out and I saw they were 160 for 5 I thought is it worth it and I would say yes, I probably wouldn't pay more then 180 and anything below 140 would be silly so 160 for 5 I am happy with. I don't think shooting is OP but I do think some of the units like savage orcs with bows that cost the same as normal orcs was not the best decision on points imo. However there are counters to shooting plaguebearers for example will most likely become one of the most used battleline units in chaos because of -1 to enemy shooting, also taking a formation which you can deploy in 1 drop almost guarantees you first turn which you could use to get a turn 1 charge forcing your opponent to pick certain targets. I agree that shooting can be challenging to play against but there are counters and I personally don't play competitively enough to be concerned nor do any of my friends who I play against.
  13. 1 model is better than none, I wanted to get my start collecting ironjawz box done this month but I only managed to get it assembled which I managed to do on a rainy day off but month 3 I would like to get the majority painted; im guna start with my warchanter and go from there. I Also remembered to take some pics of the ard boyz I've been painting I think the only thing I missing is war paint on their armour just to make them look abit less rank and file.
  14. I've been wondering about objective markers in AOS for a while and with the arrival of the generals handbook I think its important to have some way of representing them on the table so I bought some of the shattered dominion bases and put them on 60mm bases simple but effective. Now I just have to finish them for the warlords event :0
  15. Made some progress, tbh I've been really lazy with hobbying this month but I will bring it back in month 3, I bought a box of orruk brutes which brings the force up to 1000pts which is the size of game that I enjoy playing the most. For month 3 I think the brutes is enough to get stuck into as I need to catch up on month 2 but month 4 I might treat myself to a mawcrusha and maybe something else to finish of the ironjawz I also want to add a load of ogors to the army so after month 4 I will move on from the ironjawz.
