  1. There is meant to be some kind of announcement around 2pm on Saturday. Apparently staff are to be briefed about ten minutes beforehand.
  2. I cannot express how much I love this conversion. So grim and so true to their theme. Bravo sir!
  3. I've been using goblin town goblins as ghouls in my flesh eater courts, with some basic greenstuffing and conversion work. I agree that it can break immersion for some, but if you use it as a springboard for something else it can work really well
  4. Are we to submit lists beforehand? If so what date is the cut off?
  5. @Ben I have two images of the shadespire game - ok to post?
  6. Slide put up saying that the future of 40k will indeed have three modes - narrative, open and matched. Could have sworn I'd heard that before somewhere...
  7. Aside from the pointed terrain rules, I was more referencing the terrain tables - mystic etc. I know some in our local club don't use it but I'm not sure what the consensus on the tournament scene is.
  8. I assume we will be using the full terrain rules?
  9. That's a fair point I hadn't considered that - cheers!
  10. Fellow flesh eating deviants - jumping on the list feedback bandwagon, my list as it stands is as follows: • Ghoul king on Zombie dragon; general with Ruler of the Night and Cursed Book • Varghulf Courtier with the Closk of Mists and Shadows • Crypt Haunter Courtier; Part of the Abbatoir formation • Unit of 30 Ghouls; part of the abbatoir formation • Units of 6 Horrors; part of the abbatoir formation • Unit of 3 Horrors; part of the abbatoir formation • Unit of 10 ghouls • Unit of 10 ghouls • Terrorgheist/second zombie dragon - not sure which yet 1980 points total. The list is meant to be somewhat competitive but more just meant to be fun to play with. Open to any and all feedback. Engage Criticism drives. All ahead full!!
  11. Ok, so I maaaaay have forgotten to post my regular updates as However, I managed to get a game in last week in the local GW against a Freeguild Aelves alliance - really interesting force that I'm looking forward to see how it grows. The game was a proper back and forth affair, and I just managed to seal the win, thanks to my Crypt Ghast courtier unhorsing his general in an honorable joust. Or at least, that's what the Courtier saw from his point of view! I snapped a quick photo of the army post game. Really pleased with how the force is shaping up as a whole now. Continuing on with the theme of the courts and their deluded visions of grandeur, I converted up my Courtier to represent a knight leading the lowly men at arms to battle. Ser Retch Gribbleskin, Champion of the Crimson Vale: I quite like the idea that the courtier's madness has progressed to such a degree that he visualises everything from the trophy on his back's perspective, unaware that he's essentially acting as his own mount. I toyed with the idea of giving the skeleton a mask or draping a tattered cloth over the ghoul, similar to how the Bretonnian horses were garbed for war. However, in the end I think leaving it relatively blank and letting you fill in the blanks yourself adds something to the model overall. I'd also been toying around with how I could add something to the standard ghouls to make them a little more unsettling. I toyed with the idea of giving them all masks, but I quite like the idea of the masks being a conceit for the heroes of the force. So instead, I grabbed a few Goblin Town goblins i had lying around, did a few quick weapon swaps, added some greenstuff and the result is shown below! I quite like the idea that Neferata can't bear the sight of these foul creatures faces, and will only bear their presence if they hide their faces with elaborate courtly masks. Of course, the lowly peasants can't afford such highborn trinkets, so they are reduced to hiding their faces with mirrored masks - the better to reflect their queens beauty. Mirror, Mirror, on the Ghoul... The banner was an opportunity to practice an idea I've had rattling around for some time. It's a bit overwrought for a unit of blood thirsty cannibals, but I can always say its a magical banner reflecting an element of their delusions into the real world! The next Blog post should hopefully drop next week. I'm aiming to grab the Deathrattle start collecting box for Neferata and to convert up a unit of blood knights - again i'll be playing with the deluded nature of the flesh eaters so hopefully the result wont be what you expect! All going well I'll also have an update on my Golden Demon plans for this year - I think I've finally settled on my Age of Sigmar entries for the single miniature and the unit - watch this space! I'll leave you with a few close ups of the Crypt Hauter courtier and the necromancer for my force. The necromancer forms the core of my AOS28 force, along with the troupe of mirrored ghouls. I plan on adding a black coach in the near future to his band of performers - he needs some way of transporting his flayed skin big top after all!
