  1. I have a start collecting ironjawz box for sale. It's brand new on sprue. Drop me a message if you're interested 👍
  2. Yea the Ard Boy kit, as its called now, was really sweet. Its a shame it just doesnt stand up next to the newer stuff, and looks really dated next to them. Painting them as well, you can just really see how the new stuff is just in a different league. The arms are really difficult to differentiate from the armour on the body
  3. Love this thread, thank you for creating it! My favourite faction is.. IRONJAWZ! I have always loved black orcs, so cool in 8th, Grimgor was such a beast in combat, and his unit of Black Orcs was my favourite thing to push across a table. Then the Ironjawz came. I remember, because I remember the sound of my wallet crying in pain. A faction of massive Orcs who the Black Orcs LOOK UP TO! I had to get involved. I love everything about them, the aesthetic, the fluff, the way they play on the table, the MASSIVE grumpy dragon! Sure they have their short comings in game, but they are definitely still a fantastic army to play with!
  4. So having taken pure Ironjawz to a couple of events over the last couple of weeks (Warchief Warpath II and Tomorrow Burns), I'm thinking I want a little change of pace for south coast. Going to break out the mixed destruction! Allegiance: DestructionLeadersOrruk Warboss On Wyvern (240)- General- Trait: Bellowing Tyrant- Artefact: Talisman of ProtectionOrruk Megaboss (140)- Artefact: Talisman of ProtectionOrruk Warchanter (80)Moonclan Grot Shaman (60)Battleline10 x Orruk Brutes (360)- Jagged Gore Hackas- 2x Gore Choppa5 x Orruk Brutes (180)- Pair of Brute Choppas- 1x Gore Choppa5 x Orruk Brutes (180)- Pair of Brute Choppas- 1x Gore Choppa20 x Moonclan Grots (120)- Pokin Spears & Moon Shields20 x Moonclan Grots (120)- Bows & Slittas20 x Moonclan Grots (120)- Bows & SlittasUnits1 x Grot Fanatics (30)1 x Grot Fanatics (30)1 x Grot Fanatics (30)War MachinesGrot Spear Chukka (120)Grot Spear Chukka (120)BattalionsIronfist (60)Total: 1990/2000 So, here's what I need to paint.

  5. Hey Guys! With South Coast only a few weeks away, I thought it would be really cool to hear about what everyone's working on in preparation for south coast. So, this is the place if you want to post up list ideas, talk about what hobby your working on, show off your WIP display boards and armies, terrain, whatever you want to!

  9. I have re-titled the thread to something a less volatile. Try not to use language like "hate" in your thread titles please.
  10. I'd go with this as well I think. Don't forget, keeping a megaboss within 5" of the brutes gives them re-rolls of 1s to hit. Very useful for those combats where you don't have duff up da big thing giving you rerolls. Alternatively, you could always drop the gore gruntas and take a Megaboss
  11. What tone of skin are you going for? I think a darker, dirtier tone could work really well for the orruks, but might not contrast as strongly against the black armour. I painted a Megaboss and a warchanter conversion with pale skin for RAW16, Dogga Da Albino. The skin tone actually looked quite cool, and I actually use Dogga as my Megaboss in my normal lists now over my greenskin megaboss! As far as them looking like ogres, that really wont be an issue. The aesthetic for the models is SO different to the Ogre aesthetic, I would be surprised if people looked at them and thought "They just look like ogres". Nice to see some uncommon hobby ideas. Make sure you get some pictures up!
  12. Cheers for the mention @Chris Tomlin! I have indeed been trying different lists! One of the things that I think a lot of people tend to overlook when it comes to writing a good list, isn't just whether it is objectively a good list, is whether a list is good for them personally. All of my lists make use of a unit of 10 brutes, whereas Chris (and a lot of other Ironjawz players) run lists that have a unit of 15 brutes. The reason I run 10 over 15, is because I don't think I'd be able to make as effective use of 15 as I feel like I can with 10. So the standard "net list" just doesn't work for me personally. For a time as well I've not been running a Maw-Crusha, as the size of the base makes it quite difficult to always get where I want it. I actually still think there's a lot of merit around running double megaboss on foot, warchanter and a shaman as your hero set up. With the Ironfist, gives you plenty of points to play with, which means lots of boys on the table! The more I play though, the more I see the value in the Maw-Crusha, so its made its way back into my lists lately. I really hope Gordrakk gets a decent enough points drop to make him a viable pick. I ran him out a few times when I first picked up the army, and his command ability on the Ironfist is just insane, especially if you get the double turn on someone. I'm sure he's sub-optimal even if he does eventually get a points drop, but I think he will be great fun to take.
  13. Posting my feedback from the other thread into here, so its all in one place for you. Cheers for an awesome day yesterday! I had 3 great games vs 3 great opponents! Big shout out to Dave Knatt for his amazing scenery for game 3. Was really happy to come away with a couple of trophies, and really pleased that best sports was a dice off between myself, @Chris Tomlin and @Paul Buckler, so the award belongs to all 3 of us (I'm keeping the trophy though ) Absolutely nothing but praise for this event, and i cant wait to come back for another warchiefs event!

  15. Weirdnob Shaman. Ignoring the cost under GHB, you have a spell caster where one of the spells on his warscroll is so difficult to cast that it is hardly worth it. factor in the fact that if, when casting ANY spell, and you roll a double you take D3 mortal wounds immediately.
