  1. So this is a very odd looking list but it actually preformed really well for me overall yesterday. Da irregulaz-1000pts Megaboss Moonclan shaman 40 moonclan grots w/spears 6 ogor bulls w/fist (I know but it's how they are modelled) 4 moonclan fanatics. 5 Brutes w/twin choppa Played a battle with the border war scenario against a slaves to darkness force with the Brothers Glot at its head. The quick hits from the game are -my shaman went loopy on mushrooms 3 times and never got a spell off but by golly did he hold my one point objective by himself like a champ -I never actually get to use my fanatics. Like always I tried to charge them, they failed, got charged and immediately got mashed. But they did take a round of attacks meant for the grots so that's good? - 40 grots with inspiring presence will actually hold the line well. I was surprised. -I was totally scared of the Glotkin especially after they minced my Brutes almost immediately, but my Megaboss with +1 to hit and wound because of the command trait/artifact I rolled ended up chopping them to bits in just 2 combat phases! And that was WITH mystic shield on themselves! -the glotkins fleshy abundance spell makes nurgle warriors hard to pull down. Adding extra wounds to stuff even temporarily is good stuff. my moonclan pit held long enough to get what was left of my heavy hitters to chop up the bulk of his army and I got enough points for a destruction victory! This was actually a super fun list to play and one I'd suggest for a good beer and peanuts game. Lemme know if you guys have any thoughts!
  2. Hey everyone, This will be a Home/blog that i will post about my army progress regarding my new 2017 Bonesplitterz and other Destruction allies . I really am trying to painting this army to the best of my abilities, I've never really had a very nice army where you can see the love but after doing my Savage Big Boss i had sitting in my desk for over a year i was in love and couldn't wait to start. So now Painting one model at a time and keeping focused on the one army... i hope First step is having 750 Points ready for July 02/07/2017, As i have entered 'Only the Faithful Age of Sigmar Doubles Tournament'. My partner for the event is going with his Khorne Bloodbound, all close combat hack and slash, so i'm thinking some bows might help. Not wanting to smash other armies just have a bit of fun and surprise some people, But i do need help form all of you with knowing how to best play what i have. If i am setting myself up for a huge failure or if you think you can help make my list better please post your suggestions. Currently building for this event Savage Big Boss x 1 Savage Orruk Arrowboys 1 Unit of 10 Savage Orruk Arrowboys 1 Unit of 10 Savage Big Stabbas 1 Unit of 2 Arachnarok Spider x 1 < unsure if needed Kunnin Rukk My issue with Rules currently is The Arachnarok Spider, Can the Shaman cast 'Gift of the Spider God' on the spider its riding? "Select a Spiderfang unit within 8", Spells such as mystic shield say in the text that you can cast on yourself. "pick the caster, or a friendly unit within 18" I don't believe it can cast on its self at this stage so i might not need the Arachnarok Spider, just thought it would be a nice center piece if it could.
  3. Hello and welcome to my Spiderfang Grots progress log! There'll be drama! Suspense! Romance (ew)! Also probably a lot of me questioning why I decided to do this. But why Spiderfang I hear you hypothetically ask? It's simple - a Spiderfang army hits all my favourite hobby points; it's colourful, beautiful on the tabletop, and makes use of a small but diverse array of models. Now, to go through the pictures I posted with this first update: I'm building towards a Spiderfang Venom Mob formation, which for those not in the know consists of 1 Big Boss on Gigantic Spider, 3 Arachnarok Spiders, and 3 units of Spider Riders. I've already discussed the issues with the formation with my group and they're fine with me using the new warscrolls with it. I've put the Arachnaroks on 130mm round bases. I tried 160mm originally (using a paper template) but it was a little too big, it overwhelmed the model. I wanted the model to be the focus, not the base, so 130mm ended up being the best choice. Another point I should make is that some of the models I'm working on I acquired secondhand, which unfortunately means I was only provided about 14 goblins to go on the howdahs. I've decided to put at least 4 goblins on each howdah (plus the shamans) to represent the number of bow and spear attacks the model gets according to its warscroll. In terms of paint scheme, I'm planning on painting the 3 arachnaroks slightly differently from one another. Each unit of 10 spider riders will be painted to match one of the arachnaroks, a bit like the arachnarok is the mother spider and the smaller ones are her brood. The army will be unified by the other colours, such as the turquoise feathers and green goblin skin. This way, even though the spiders are different colours, the army will be cohesive. The army list I'm working on includes 2 units of 10 spider riders and one big unit of 20, plus a unit of 20 grot scuttlings (my group has agreed to let me use them as gitmob grots with the Spiderfang keyword). Anyway, watch this space for more updates, and feel free to leave any comments you like! I'll be updating this as I make progress, including hopefully some battle reports to show you all how the army performs on the table top. Thanks for reading, I'll update soon!

  5. Here in the Mitten (Michigan) there aren't a ton of people playing Age of Sigmar. I have been wracking my brain on what is a good way to approach this challenge. We have 3 gaming stores within less then 30 minutes of each other. I have started a group page on FaceBook, what am I missing? Demo games? My best friend is taking a second look at AOS as we both started playing when it first came out and had balance issues and need fine tuning. I am hoping he gives it a second chance as the game is so much better now.
  6. UPDATE: vote now! https://www.the-stronghold.com/index.php?/topic/29646-warscrollz-warboss-voting-open-vote-now/ ***** Hi all, I'm running a new competition at the Stronghold with the aim to build a resource of cunnin' Warbossy opinions on 100 Destruction warscrolls! There's a Destruction battletome and a start collecting box up for grabs - all you have to do to enter is to post a review or some tactical tips within the comments section of one or more Destruction warscrolls over in the Stronghold's Warscrolls section. You can comment on warscrolls which have already received a review, and the deadline is the 16th of March See here for more info: http://www.the-stronghold.com/index.php?/blogs/entry/177-warscrollz-warboss-competition-review-a-warscroll-to-enter/ Good luck!
  7. Good morning all, I thought it was time I got a thread together to gather all my thoughts and progress on my Ironjawz army (perhaps branching into Destruction in a broader sense). I will be including modelling, painting, army lists, battle reports etc etc, I didn't want to do it as a separate blog or anything as I like the idea of keeping it within this Destruction sub forum (which for my money is the best part of the forum at the moment - some great chat, really enthusing me for this army). Hopefully @Ben and the Moderators are cool with this decision. As well as this thread, you will also be able to hear about my exploits on my podcast - The Black Sun. You can find all the most recent episode on this forum, or check out iTunes or www.theblacksun.co.uk - It's not family friendly like most of the other podcasts out there, but is entertaining I like to think. Also I am reasonably active on Twitter, and usually like to post photos of most my games etc. Follow me @the_black_sun I do actually have armies for all 4 of the Grand Alliances in AoS and whilst I am working on all of them simultaneously in various ways, I've definitely noticed my focus begin to increasingly shift towards Destruction. Disclaimer - when the Dark Aelves are released in whatever guise they may be, I am likely to abandon ship and spend all my time in the Order sub forum, being that they are my true Warhammer love, but for now, I'm all about the Ironjawz! I've always been a fan of Orks in Warhammer 40,000 but have never actually played Orcs & Goblins in WFB. So whilst the detractors and troggoths bemoaned the pseudo 40K look of the Ironjawz, I think for me this aesthetic really drew me in and got me going green. So I have already actually played a bunch of games with Ironjawz, having gone "all in", as they say, on the release, but these were all at 100 SCGT points and included a Magma Dragon just to make up the points (oh, and its pretty good!). I figured with the impending release of the General's Handbook, now was a perfect time to draw a line under what's gone so far and start afresh with the new system. We won't get into all the recent allegiance nonsense, you can read about that in other threads. Suffice to say, the Battleline "unlocks" for Ironjawz and the Destruction traits and artefacts make for a pretty nice combination. I'm not saying Ironjawz are going to be out there winning events (certainly not with me using them, if my abysmal results at Call to War are anything to go by!) but I am hoping and somewhat confident they can be competitive...and we have a pretty extensive thread on that right here in this forum! So this is pretty much just an introductory post for now. I have already painted some models (not as many as I would've liked); Megaboss Krunk, who can be found in the gallery and 5 Brutes. I will take some better photos and add them to this thread as soon as possible. I am reasonably happy with the level of the paint jobs and whilst not my best work, believe the army will look nice upon the table. I've intentionally kept the basing quite plain, though I am consider scraping off some areas and adding the flavour of the month; Agrellan Earth, just to add some interest. Using my 40K Ork bitz box I have been able to customise my models and this combined with some reposing has allowed me to make all 20 Brutes so far individual. Just a bit of a shame I got my Gore-gruntas after the Brutes as mixing in their Jagged-Hackas would've been super cool. Considering another 10 Brutes just for this purpose. This weekend (Thursday night to Sunday) I am attending Bossfest, a camping, drinking, gaming extravaganza. Whilst there will be various games being played, I am hopeful of getting in a good few games with Da Black Sunz, which will be the only AoS army I'll be taking. These will be my first games under the General's Handbook and will be played to 2,000 points using the Matched Played Battleplans. Many people in attendance will be practising for my 1 day event, Rain of Stars, which is removing the army restrictions and adding a sideboard (as the event is two weeks after the book drops), so we will also allow that over this weekend, therefore some of the armies I play may not be exactly true to the book. However, this should allow for some solid competition and really stress test the army. The list I use personally will be General's Handbook legal though. For now, my pool of Ironjawz models is; Maw-krusha (happy to use as Gordrakk or Megaboss), Megaboss, Warchanter, Shaman, 20 Brutes, 10 Ardboyz, 3 Gore-gruntas. I am not adverse to buying more though! 2 more boxes of Gore-gruntas are definitely happening after assembling some this past weekend - amazing models. It's worth pointing out that aesthetics are definitely a consideration to me in this army. Here is the list(s) I am currently considering for the weekend; Da Black Sunz - 2,000 points Gordrakk - 700 Megaboss - 140 Warchanter - 80 Weirdnob Shaman - 120 10 Brutes with Jagged Hackas - 360 5 Brutes with Choppas - 180 5 Brutes with Choppas - 180 10 Ardboyz - 180 Ironfist - 60 Total - 2,000 points Nice to hit the 2,000 points dead on really! That seems a challenge in of itself under General's Handbook. The main change I am considering is dropping Gordrakk for a baby Cabbage. The 180 point difference is nice as it allows another battleline unit - in this case Gore-gruntas (mostly just to get all my models on the table). If I wanna keep the big man in there, I can also include the Gore-gruntas by dropping 5 Brutes. What do people think on this? Seems small to me! I'll leave it there for now. This afternoon I'll add my thoughts on Command Traits and Artefacts! Thanks for reading, Chris
  8. Adm'rul Kurgan Grimjaw and the Ironfang Pirate Fleet don't all come from one Realm so they don't like to be tied down to any location and always have one eye on the horizon in search of the next drink/loot/fight. The fleet is often scattered around the oceans and seas of the Mortal Realms. They have used Blackrock, in Ghur, as a base of operations and meeting point for many years (and if you believe the old Adm'rul, he says he was Pirate Prince for a while). Before that they also used an uncharted island chain known as Hell's Teef, somewhere in the Sea of Serpents. Adm'rul Kurgan is a veteran of a hundred campaigns in every corner of the Realms: from the steaming jungles of Ghyran to the ruined cities of the Hysh; he has burned ports along the Rotwater Blight, raided the islands of Okkam’s Reach in Ulgu, besieged fortresses in the Endless Desert, endured the perpetual snowstorms and barren wastes of the Silverglades in Chamon, battled on the rivers in the heart of the Jade Kingdoms, looted the Baneskull Islands of Shyish and engaged all manner of foes on land and sea. All the while stealing anything that wasn't nailed down, and having a go with a claw-hammer at anything that was. He and Da Ironfangs are always ready to run away from whatever the world throws at them! Adm'rul Kurgan Grimjaw, Orruk Ironjawz Megaboss The Cleavermaws, Orruk Buccaneers of Ghur, led by Kap'n Mogrum Da Butcha, with his first mate Mr Sludga and Navigator-Shaman Lost Uzzog. The Rotmoons, Swashbuckling Orruk Privateers of Chamon, Led by Kapitan Alunzo da Leeva, with Explorer-Shaman El Doctoro. The Chimeras, Orruk Corsairs of Hysh, led by Kap'n Sinbag, with first mate Big Uluc and Mystic-Shaman Weird Khaaan. The Four Pounders, Ogor Leadbelchers Da Wreckers, Fellwater Troggoths led by Trollumbus. Grapeshot, the Rumguzzler Gargant.
  9. Hello all. I have a fully painted 3k point Ironjawz army for sale. I'm in no rush to sell it but I will definitely let it go for the right price! The list is as follows: 1 x megaboss on maw krusha (magnetized so he can go on a base or on the krusha) 1 x megaboss on foot 1 x Weirdnob shaman 3 x war chantas 30 Ard Boys ( 15 2-handers, 15 dual-wield. Shields available but unpainted.) 20 brutes (4 units. All units have 1 gore Choppa. 3 have a Klaw and smasha, one has a boss Choppa.) 3 units of gore gruntas, magnetized weapon options between the Choppa and jagged gore hackas. Some poor quality pictures as follows. PM me if you have inquiries or want better pictures! Also have an 'ard case available for them.
  10. Seeing how other parts of the forum have similar threads and we are now in the Age of Shooting, I'm curious how other Destruction Generals deal with mass shooting. I was at the Alliance event over the weekend and faced two armies which fit into this category. I ran the following army... Leaders Frostlord on Stonehorn - General with Bellowing Tyrant Frostlord on Stonehorn - with Battlebrew Huskard on Thundertusk - with Blood Vulture Units Ogors x 9 - with Crusher, Bellower & Icon Bearer with Tribal Banner Ogors x 6 - with Crusher, Bellower & Icon Bearer with Tribal Banner Ogors x 3 - with Crusher, Bellower & Icon Bearer with Tribal Banner I've been running this list now for a few months and I quite enjoy using it. I've also found it is interesting against shooty armies. Over the weekend, I played against the following... Ben Johnson and Stormcast Eternals Heros Lord Aquilor (200) - General - Staunch Defender - Aethereal Stalker Lord Celestant On Dracoth (220) - Tempestos Hammer & Thundershield - Armor of Silvered Sigmarite - Keen-clawed Knight Venator (120) - Artefact: Luckstone Units 5 x Judicators (160) - Prime - Skybolt Bows - 1x Shockbolt Bow 5 x Vanguard-Hunters (140) - Prime - Astral Compass 5 x Vanguard-Hunters (140) - Prime - Asral Compass 3 x Vanguard-Raptors with Longstrike Crossbows (180) - Prime with Aetherwing 3 x Vanguard-Raptors with Longstrike Crossbows (180) - Prime with Aetherwing 3 x Vanguard-Raptors with Longstrike Crossbows (180) - Prime with Aetherwing 3 x Aetherwings (60) 3 x Aetherwings (60) 3 x Aetherwings (60) 3 x Vanguard-Palladors (220) - Starstrike Javelins - Prime Vanguard Justicar Conclave (60) Jon Green and Order Heros Grimwrath Berzerker (80) Skink Starseer (160) Units 5 x Vulkite Berzerkers (60) 5 x Vulkite Berzerkers (60) 5 x Vulkite Berzerkers (60) 3 x Kurnoth Hunters (180) - Greatbows 3 x Kurnoth Hunters (180) - Greatbows 3 x Kurnoth Hunters (180) - Greatbows 3 x Kurnoth Hunters (180) - Greatbows 3 x Kurnoth Hunters (180) - Greatbows 3 x Kurnoth Hunters (180) - Greatbows 3 x Kurnoth Hunters (180) - Greatbows Celestial Hurricanum (320) Both armies were tough to fight against but in both cases I came close to getting a win. Against Ben, the scenario was Blood and Glory and I nearly won but lost due to me not understanding you just activate objectives and don't need to sit on them. This meant that I became less aggressive last few turns which allowed Ben to get last minute objectives for a minor win. Against Jon, the scenario was Gift from the Heavens and I was lucky with my objective landing by my unit of six Ogors and his landed in a mass brawl in the centre of his side of the board. I had a slight run of slightly below average luck while Jon had slightly above which helped turn the tables for him to table me and get a Major win. In both these games I played it with both Frostlords going forwards backed up by the unit of 9 Ogors and Thundertusk. So in a sense I was doing a Blitzkrieg and if you get slightly lucky, you can get first round charges which gives the rest of the army time to either get objectives or rush up and kill stuff. But I know that this is not how everybody runs their army and I would like to think there are more options in the Destruction Alliance than using Frostlords on Stonehorns. So what do you guys use or been thinking about using?
  11. I played this list: - 3 thundertusk huskard - Savage boss - 40 man kunnin rukk archers - 2 units of 20 screen goblins with fanatics - 1 unit of screen orruks The army is 240 shots at 4+/4+ and 18 mortal wounds from 18" Against my stormcast, I charged first turn with 2 paladin units, fulminators and prosecutors. one fanatic stopped me for the most part so I did mostly nothing, then all of it was dead after his shooting. I was at a big disadvantage this game because escalation lets him basically take the corner so I have no way to get to him, and puts him especially far back so my shooting is all out of range. The only thing i can think of would be to keep my entire army in the celestial realm and make him move up, create room for me then strike down and hope to get some charges in the right places.
  12. Hi guys, Forgive me if this has come up before, I did have a hunt but couldn't see the discussion in the posts I looked through. I'm at 1k atm with my Ironjawz and am currently building up to 2k with the following list in mind (aimed for competitive play once they're done): 2,000 points target force: Megaboss Warchanter x 3 Weirdnob Shaman 15 x Brutes 5 x Brutes 20 x Ardboys 10 x Ardboys 10 x Ardboys Ironfist Whilst the unit sizes could be played with (maybe 2 units of 10 Brutes..) My big sticking point is the load out for the Ardboys. I'm convinced on going with all Oruk-forged Big Choppas on the 10man units but I reckon I should get some shields in the 20man unit as this unit will mainly be focused on holding ground and tying up the opponents harder hitting unit(s). Maybe 10 x shields with 10 x 2HW? Are the shields even worth bothering with? I wondered if the more experienced players had any advise on this before I start building :-) (ofc by the time I get the whole force the GH2 will be out and we'll all be talking new lists!)
  13. I thought it would be interesting to have a bit of a blog thread showing how I'm putting my army together for Clash of Swords which will be run at Firestorm Games at the end of October. Hopefully it will show some of my thinking behind choosing what I'm taking and how I go about making an army. Wots Clash? Clash of Swords is an event run by the very lovely Mo at Firestorm Games in Cardiff (that's in Wales for you international types) and it's a very, very good event. It's well run and a good group of players turn out for the event, which usually means that Mo doesn't have many admin issues in running it so can go around abusing/banter people. It creates a fantastic atmosphere and a great weekend away playing toy soldiers. I was luckily enough to go to the first Clash of Swords but due to scheduling clashes (aka my wife or work), I not been able to make one since. So I was a bit gutted when Mo announced this would be his last one (not 100% sure if this is the case now) and I had intended to go and pick up a ticket but got distracted by the birth of my son. Somehow though, life sort of returned to normal and I was able to sneak onto the guest list for the event, but what to take. Da Plan My approach to collecting, assembling and painting an army is very similar to a lot of peoples - I tend to act all magpie like, getting excited over the next shiney thing and then somehow have an army at the end of it which bears no resemblance to what cool idea I had at the start. This time is a bit different. I had originally intended to collect an Ogre Kingdoms army during the last year or so of 8th edition's life before the End Times hit, so had amassed the start of an Ogre army. As usual, I got distracted and before I knew it, Age of Sigmar happened! Again, didn't think too much about things thanks to work and the forthcoming birth of my clone (seriously, my son is like a clone of me!) and I carried on getting the odd game here and there while I waited for a chance to have a new army. So with my name on the guest list for Clash, I had a very firm idea what I wanted to take - Ogors! This list has only changed a little bit over the last three/four months as I had a very clear idea what I wanted to take. I wanted a small model count army and something fairly simple to use. So with a few suggestions from people I came up with the following, which after the Generals Handbook is right up my street. Leaders Frostlord on Stonehorn - General - Trait: Ravager - Artefact: Talisman of Protection Huskard on Stonehorn Huskard on Stonehorn Units Ogors x 6 Ogors x 6 Ogors x 6 Total: 1940/2000 So the army is very simple. Lots of Ogors to run around hitting things, capturing objectives and being cool with three Stonehorns running around hitting things, capturing objectives (not at Clash though) and being cool. What makes the army awesome is I don't need to remember a lot of things, it uses the fantastic Destruction traits and abilities and it runs around hitting things. So with this in mind, I went to start on the army..... ... but I didn't. For the last few years, I have been snowed under by work and having a newborn baby meant any spare time I had didn't go towards anything hobby related (usually sleep). So last weekend, where I had a bit of spare time from work and my wife very kindly offering me to have a Saturday to myself. So I had a great time watching the coverage of the GW Warlords event, while assembling lots and lots of Ogors. The fruits of my labour can be seen below. I even had time to convert up a Butcher out of some spare parts I had! Wot now? So the plan for this weekend is to assemble the Stonehorns and if I get time get everything undercoated. Then I intend to spend a few hours each week getting the army painted but I have accepted I may have to bring out the tin of Army Painter. Army Painter is a fantastic product but I would like to try and avoid using it this time. Thanks for Reading, more soon....
  14. I guess I'll start with, Hello! I've played two games so far and am wondering if I need more chompas. I am having trouble deciding. I have 20 spears and 10 chompas. I'm not sure that was the best thing to do. Looking at range vs chopping power. I've stumbled onto one other misstep I've made do far as well. I'm more sure about this one than the chompas vs Spears. I have a mob of 20 Morboys. I'm thinking 2 mobs of 10 would actually be more useful. none of their abilities/rules seem to gain from large mobs. Any thoughts on these would be welcome! Thanks for reading!
  15. So I've been playing Ironjawz for about a year now. With some success, I took 3rd with pure BALANCED Ironjawz at the Las Vegas Open, and was 2nd in battle points. I'm seeing a ton of lists right now that have between 20-40 brutes, and I just don't like it for a few reasons. Just wanna hear some peoples thoughts on this. 1. They have abuse able bravery. There was a gentlemen playing a list like this at LVO and what happened to him was his opponent took every opportunity to force bravery tests and he lost a good number of Brutes that way. 2. Why not Ardboys, I love them. Your getting 20 wounds with a 4+ and they also hit pretty damn hard. They have the potential to have 8 bravery in combat and get them long bomb charges. 3. I personally think that they will be going up in points in GH2, perhaps to 200 or even 220 for the unit.
  16. The List: (For fluff, please check my blog in my signature) LeadersTyrant (160)- Massive Ogre ClubButcher (140)UnitsLeadbelchers x 6 (320)- Gutbusters BattlelineLeadbelchers x 3 (160)- Gutbusters BattlelineOgors x 6 (240)- BattlelineOgors x 6 (240)- BattlelineOgors x 6 (240)- BattlelineOgors x 3 (120)- BattlelineBehemothsAleguzzler Gargant (180)Aleguzzler Gargant (180)Total: 1980/2000 Now that I have an influx of models, I have decided its time to start building my army, and now I have a semi decent camera phone I thought I would share some progress with you. Thanks to a sweet trade I set up with @Soulsmith and some amazing inspiration from the very talented @Lysandestolpe I started work on some conversion of my own Gargant today. I have Created a sword, shield and shoulder pad out of plasticard ( first time using, fun medium). I have also kitbashed a loincloth from an ardboyz banner, with some slight careful carving to thin it down and to make it fit under the gargants gut. The loincloths plate is a shield from the orruk boss on boar set with the back carved flat. Finally I have also greenstuffed up gaps and started to make a set of green stuff boots as the gargant was lacking feet. There is still some tidying work left to do, however its way late and I want to let things dry hard before i get stuck in. Pretty pleased with the progress, enjoy the pictures Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  17. So, I'm looking to expand my Ironjawz to a competitive 2k list but I'm not 100% convinced that a pure Ironjawz list would be efficient due to the lack of ability to inflict/resist mortal wounds and model count. The list I think will be most efficient is below. I chosen this to maximize speed and the characters unit buff abilities over the classic cabbage option you see out there. Leaders Orruk Megaboss (140) Battle Brew & Ravager Orruk Megaboss (140) Gem of Seeing Orruk Warchanter (80) Orruk Warchanter (80) Orruk Warchanter (80) Orruk Weirdnob Shaman (120) Battleline 20 x Orruk ‘Ardboys (360) 10 x Orruk-forged Big Choppa’s & 9 x Orruk-forged Choppas & Smashas 10 x Orruk ‘Ardboys (180) 9 x Orruk-forged Choppas & Smashas 10 x Orruk Brutes (360) Boss Klaw & Brute Smasha, 2 x Gore-Choppas, 5 x Jagged Gore-Hacka’s & 2 x Two Brute Choppas 10 x Orruk Brutes (360) Boss Klaw & Brute Smasha, 2 x Gore-Choppas, 5 x Jagged Gore-Hacka’s & 2 x Two Brute Choppas 5 x Orruk Brutes (180) 3 x Two Brute Choppas, Boss Klaw & Brute Smasha & 1 x Gore-Choppas Battalion Ironfist (60) Input would be great. Clearly it lacks shooting & numbers but as I don't have experience in playing 2k games I am unsure if this is such a disadvantage considering the units damage output...
  18. Hey everyone, I'm about 5 or so months in to Warhammer now. I've been playing Sylvaneth the whole time and love them. Our group is going to do a slow grow after January, we have a tournament here in Australia (we don't have many) and people want to mix it up after prepping so hard for their army. I don't mind, as I used to have a few goblin models as a kid and have massive nostalgia. On the podcasts (not as much scene here) it seems like Moonclan are pretty big, most popular allegiance at Warlords and everyone seems to know someone who plays them. Here it's not quite as nice, I haven't seen a single goblin army at all. I was lucky enough to have the Sylvaneth thread on here as otherwise I'd have no idea what is possible with Sylvaneth given that I've not seen any one else play them (not that I pull of the tactics to any high degree...). Although I'm not the best person to start it, and I can only contribute small things I was curious if any discussion could develop to even close to the same level as the Sylvaneth thread. I guess at the moment grotz are limited by few formations which limits things, and it seems people are holding off for new battletomes atm which is probably wise. I'm not sure what else i'd rather slow grow though, and I guess I can hope for a Moonclan release in particular soon (with hopefully some formations to chuck in some Gitmob warmachines). Would anyone be keen to have a bit of an ongoing discussion? I'm curious what lists people take, I'm not sure if it will be more or less diverse without the formations offered in some of the other armies. Seems like you could mix in various Gitmob grotz for a mixed grot armies, or bring in various other destruction choices while there is no allegiance abilities. I've seen Gorrdrak moonclan mixes, and I'm sure a thundertusk, Gitmob grotz with bows (+ a shaman), or various other combos could work really well with Moonclans impressive stalling and melee combos they can pull off. I'd love to see what you play, how you play, things you think might be good, and etc! Which gitmob warmachines are the best, are warmachines still worth it given the weakness of the crew these days? I have a lot of questions! Cheers, Samuel
  19. This is a picture one of my Ogor units. I found these guys to be surprisingly resilient and can fight a bit. I personally think they need a bit of extra "bite" as they can struggle to hit things but a very nice Battleline unit for my army Model was assembled and painted while watching the GW Warlords event and is a very simple scheme of Pink, Orange, and Blue (I think it was Warlock Purple, Blazing Orange and Caledor Sky - some of these colours aren't available but should be similar to the current citadel colours). The model was then painted with Army Painter Dark Tone to add the shade and detail as well as varnish it.
  20. This is a picture of my Huskard riding a Thundertusk. This is a great unit to play with but you really do need to remember it's a support unit and not a big monster to go and fight things! Model was assembled and painted while watching the GW Warlords event and is a very simple scheme of Pink, Orange, and Blue (I think it was Warlock Purple, Blazing Orange and Caledor Sky - some of these colours aren't available but should be similar to the current citadel colours). The model was then painted with Army Painter Dark Tone to add the shade and detail as well as varnish it.
  21. This is a picture of my Frostlord riding a Stonehorn. I love these guys as they cause so much destruction and can take quite a beating! Model was assembled and painted while watching the GW Warlords event and is a very simple scheme of Pink, Orange, and Blue (I think it was Warlock Purple, Blazing Orange and Caledor Sky - some of these colours aren't available but should be similar to the current citadel colours).

  22. Hi! I've been following this forum for a while now and it's been really useful in helping me get started with aos! I have started off with ironjaws, but i'd like to build a bigger army, and love the options that mixed destruction throws up. I would really appreciate feedback on my 2k list idea before I make the jump and order more miniatures! 1 megaboss 140pts 1 moonclan shaman 60pts 1 warchanter 80pts 40 moonclan grots 240pts 2 fanatics 60pts 40 moonclan grots 240pts 2 fanatics 60pts 10 orc arrer boys 100pts 3 leadbelcher 160pts 3 leadbelcher 160pts 5 brutes 180pts 5 brutes 180pts 10 ardboys 180pts 1 rocklobber 100pts Ironfist 60pts 2000/2000 Thanks in advance.

  23. Hello! Im italian fan (sorry for bad english) of all gw universe and miniatures game in general... but mostly gw . Greenskin since the start of this passion more than ten years ago, with the release of orruks in aos my happines raises a lot and i felt like glorious old time, i were literally impatient for that release! So now here we are; im always been very slow to paint a personal army but little by little i hope to raise a modest orruks force to smash some heads in mortal realms! May i present you my orruks tribe: the Ice Klaw Klan. For now i painted 4 gruntas, one missing because i try to heavily convert it and now i need some bits to fix it, but we dont care. The next in processing are 3 gore gruntas and the megaboss that ill show you in next days, im converting it at the moment. WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGH! to all A little intruder:
  24. What is the best alliance, could it be Death, Order, Chaos, or Destruction who KNOWS???
  25. I'm toying with the idea of making a mixed Destruction force and am wondering what battlelines you guys favour? I've just bought some Savage Orruks and am debating buying some Ogors as well
