  1. So i've edited this from a purely Wolves of Ghur PLOG (although i strayed from that quite early on) into a PLOG for all of my various AOS armies and related projects past and present and I want to keep this first post as contents section with links to the various armies: Wolves of Ghur (Khorne Bloodbound) - Pages 1 -3 (ongoing) Duardin - Page 1 (complete) Sylvaneth Page 2 (complete) Beastmen (Brayherd, Warherd, Daemons, Monsters of Chaos) Page 3 (complete...for now) Ogors and Gargants Page 3 (complete)
  2. 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.
  3. Ogor compendium terminology

    In the attached photo, Banner of the Great Maw: In your hero phase, a Bruiser can plant the Banner of the Great Maw in the ground with a mighty bellow. If he does so, he may not move until your next hero phase, but until then all Ogor units from your army within 18" of him are imbued with the hunger of the Great Maw. In the combat phase, wound rolls of 6 or more for these units inflict a mortal wound in addition to any other damage, as your warriors bite big chunks out of the foe Q: Does this carry over into the combat phase for units that move outside the 18" range? Imbued I think is the wrong wording here since it is a planted banner. Banner planting makes sense as limiting the AoE by stopping movement and charging. This imbued term can mean simply that units outside the banner's range in the following turn are then outside of range.... I want this to work and my argument is that the warscroll would not use the word imbued within 18" until the next hero phase. The warscroll would simply state the model cannot move until the next hero phase and units within 18" in the combat phase get the boon. Thoughts? Are there any like examples on other scrolls that have been judged by an authority or GW FAQ?
  4. Beastclaw starter advice?

    So, I've been mainly playing Ironjawz, and I got an offer to pick up the Icewind Assault Box for cheap. Now I've got it here and, despite it needs to be put together (which will probably take ages), I want to play it. My questions to you: Do you have any general advice for a new beastclaw player? Is the box alone viable or does it need expansion for semi competitive play? Are there any ways I should or should not put some of the models together? Should I stay pure beastclaw or rather play them mixed with grots (considering competitiveness)? Anything else? Thanks.

Minor changes to boost it? Thanks in advance!
  6. So in continuing the trend to highlight how legacy warscrolls are still quite viable, I built a rather nice combination of destruction, focused around the Gutbusters. While there is a Thundertusk from the Beastclaw Raiders included (just one!!), that warscroll was part of the Ogre Kingdoms in 8th before being broken out for the newly updated sub-faction when they got their own battletome, and is still part of the overall Destruction general alliance. Likewise, mixed in are some segments from the Moonclan Grots, for variety, some nice mechanics and also for larger units size options to contest objectives. I plan to mix things up a bit and take this to an upcoming one day event in my area, and have tested it on the table in a few games of late. I was pretty surprised at how not only mobile the army is, but also how resilent it is. Its able to absorb damage pretty well, certainly can dish it out, and is reasonably able to compete in all phases of the game. The list provides a nice array of options, and isn't a one trick pony. While I'm sure it would struggle against Disciples of Tzeentch (what doesn't??), I think it would do reasonably well against Sylvaneth, most Stormcast builds and dish out enough damage against FEC to delete most of their units before they could regen their numbers. Against the new Khorne, I'm sure it would be a bloody affair but I imagine it would be a fun one to try out and I look foward to testing that. Again, while not likely an event winner, older players with armies pre-AoS can make a good game of it, and with a few tweaks and uses of the Allegiance abilities, could contend. Here's the link to the video. I hope you enjoy!
  7. With the release of the destruction grand alliance book, I decided to collect and paint up a small force of ogres (ogors) and other members of the grand alliance. I've always loved these chubby brutes and I think the models have aged really well and I've always had a soft spot for greenskins too! Part of my mission was to cut costs - so all model purchases will be made on ebay and other second hand or reduced priced outlets - hence the name of the group - 'The Tight-Fist Clan' Like me, they will be a tight fisted bunch. So - progress so far: completed a unit of 6 ogors - the iron fists are magnetised to allow them to be swapped for an additional weapon (not having played AOS yet... I wasn't sure what the best weapon option would be) A closer shot of a few members I'm aiming to give each unit its own 'wound gnoblar' to help keep track of wounds on the unit, here's mine for the first unit: A close up on the banner and lookout gnoblar: And lastly, my latest bit of progress - a grot shaman. Really enjoyed painting this guy C&C welcome!
  8. The Road to Clash - Wall of Ogors

    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....

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
  10. Hi Guys. I'm trying to build an 1k pure BCR Tournament List. I ended up like this: Allegiance: Beastclaw RaidersLeadersHuskard on Thundertusk (340)- GeneralHuskard on Thundertusk (340)Battleline2 x Mournfang Pack (200)- Beastclaw Raiders Battleline3 x Icefall Yhetees (120)- Beastclaw Raiders Battleline (Frostlord on Thundertusk General)UnitsTotal: 1000/2000 do you have some advices?
  11. Hi Guys! So I recently went to a one day 2k tournament (yesterday actually). The event had 20 players with 2 of those being rank 6 and 15 in Australia and another one, a few wins away from being best Iron Jawz in OZ. So pretty tough competition for my first ever 2k point AOS games. Onto my list! I decided to take gutbusters backed up by a frostlord on stonehorn. I was going to run all gutbusters, but real life got in the way of me painting all the gutbusters I needed. Tyrant - General, bellowing Tyrant Butcher Bruiser BSB Frostlord on stonehorn - battle brew 4*3 ogors with full command 6 iron guts 3 gorgers The idea behind the list is that you buff the frostlord and Ironguts and send them in. Bulls lurk in the back field catching and holding objectives, Tyrant and BSB move into the midfield for banner and bellowing tyrant support. The Tyrant can also help hold enemies trying to get past and kill the squishy ogors. Onto the matches! First match I came up against a nurgle chaos list. Blood and glory was the scenario. From memory he had: Daemon prince with wings Great unclean one Gutrot spume A dude riding a circle mouthed beast with scythe 30 plague bearers 10 blight kings 3 plague drones Now that I think about it, he may have accidentally cheated as he deployed the plague bearers in one block when they should have been in 2. In our match it didn't make much difference. The main winning factor in this match was miasma which he cast with the dude riding the circle mouthed beast. My Opponent played the spell causing D3+1 mortal wounds every phase to my stonehorn, when he was only meant to be doing that if he caused a wound on the stonehorn. As a consequence the stonehorn went down quickly and the ironguts weren't able to carry me to a win. My opponent one a minor victory on VPs. Gorgers in this match were very useful and at one point nearly won me the game by capturing his left hand objective. A quick picture of deployment (Sorry about the poor quality, had to hurry due to round timers in use) Minor Loss Ogors My next round I came up against a death player playing the take and hold scenario, he hadn't played match play before and was running Nagash. He stuck Nagash down across from my stonehorn on the 12 inch line and I did warn him that I could potentially be in turn one and might kill him, but he wasn't worried about it. So he gave me the first turn and I charged Nagash causing 14 wounds. In his turn he ran his characters in, did 5 wounds to me, failed most of his spells and in return I killed Nagash. He quit the game and tournament at this point. I got a cool pic though before he did: This was a game where I felt the stonehorn killed a lot of potential fun for me and my opponent. Having said that, I'm sure Nagash would have walked all over an all gutbuster list, so I don't feel too bad for the guy :P. Major Victory Ogors! In my third match I versed my friend who is also a death player. He runs a bone rattle formation. His list from memory is: bonerattle formation Wight king with black axe - cloak, redfury 40 skeletons with spears 30 grave guard with great weapons 2 * 10 skeletons with shield and sword 10 black knights Outside of the formation necrotect screaming skull catapult necromancer Arkhan the black We were playing border war. I deployed centrally, stone horn and iron guts on the 12 inch line with my other ogor characters hiding behind. The units of bulls were on either flank hoping to nab a couple of points. He elects to go first and pumps his black knights up for a first turn charge into the iron guts and stonehorn. Killing 3 ironguts and no dmg on the stonehorn, in retaliation I wipe the black knights. He manages 3 points this turn with 1 point for his home objective and captures the right hand side objective. In my turn I buff the stone horn and charge into his 40 man skeleton unit, the rest of my units move forward. My gorgers come onto my right flank to try and take the objective he is holding with 10 skeletons with shields. In combat I take both 2 point objectives and wipe the 40 man skeleton unit with the stonehorn. Scoring 5 points. His next turn he moves his grave guard to try and kill my gorgers and 3 man ogor unit holding the objective that was previously held by his 10 man skeleton unit. He does some shooting, teleports his lord over to my 2 3 man ogor units holding the left hand 2 point objective and also flies Arkhan over there. He fails a charge with Arkhan, and gets his graveguard into my ogors and gorgers and the wight king into one of the 3 man ogor units. Due to terrain and the size of the graveguard unit, he can't get as many as he would like into CC and only manages to kill 2 ogors and 1 gorger, losing 2 in return. The lord kills to ogors (one from running) and takes 2 wounds (would have been 4, but he halves the wounds taken due to some special armour). He manages to get 3 points this turn. I get the priority in the next turn and run the stonehorn over to kill the graveguard, the ironguts move up to kill the necrotect and the catapult, the butcher gets ready to charge Arkhan and my tyrant also moves to charge into the graveguard. I activate "Down to the ironguts" due to an ogor fleeing. I make all my charges. I choose to go the ogor fighting his lord as I knew he would be dead if I didn't, managing to get him down to 1 wound remaining. He activates the graveguard killing my Tyrant and finishing the ogors off and leaving one gorger with 1 wound remaining. The stonehorn wipes the graveguard. His necrotect kills one of my ironguts (he only had 2 wounds remaining). I activate my butcher and do nothing and Arkhan responds by killing me outright. The ironguts kill the catapult and necrotect. This turn I score 5 points again. In his turn he moves Arkhan over for a charge on my bulls holding the 2 point objective. He fails both charges with the wight king and Arkhan on double 1s leaving that objective in my control. In CC the ironguts finish up the catapult crew capturing his own objective. He scores no points this turn and he concedes at this point. Major victory Ogors! I ended the tournament tie 4th with a bunch of other people. The tournament organiser then used a magic system where you were awarded points based on how well your opponents did. Since my opponents hadn't done so well I didn't place. Overall I was happy though with my performance at the tournament. The list is fun to play and fairly straight forward. It can be flimsy if you can't lock your opponent into their deployment zone with the stonehorn, ironguts and gorgers. I found that you do pretty much everytime lock them in their deployment zone with those 3 units though. Gorgers are surprisingly hard to remove with 15 wounds and bravery 8 for a 3 man unit. The bruiser BSB only got in range once of both the gorgers and stone horn and my last match and man he was worth it in that case, but most of the time he's too slow to be useful. This will be the final outing for the stonehorn for a while now though. He's been fun and is mostly reliable. I'm just looking to move away from the guy who always has him on the board. My star unit other then the stonehorn was the gorgers. I've run a 2 man unit and it wasn't very good, but 3 was much better. They're strong enough to roll over most backfield objective holders and the ogor bulls are fast enough to help them capture objectives if you need 5 or more models. People also seem to over commit to take them off, moving a large portion of their armies over to counter the gorgers which is what you want with this army, cause as soon as they realise they just need to get into your backfield to win, you're toast haha. Thanks for reading! Next tournament should be next month. I'll be busting out a pure spiderfang army (if I can paint it in time :)): Spiderfang venom mob battalion - 100pts 2 * arak with shrine - 560pts 1 * arak with web flinger - 280pts 1* big boss - 100pts 3 * 15 spider riders with full command - 900pts 60pts left for triumph roll Drops: 1
  12. Hi there, Me and my friend Dan have a Youtube battle report channel called Ye Olde Battle Reps. Dan has decided to jump in to AoS with a boatload (discload?) of the new Tzeentch stuff (I must admit the models are amazing), so we'll probably be doing some AoS battle reps from time to time. As for me, err... well, let's not talk about that Dan will also be doing some hobby stuff such an unboxing (there's a Tzeentch unboxing video also up on our channel) and painting videos etc for AoS. Here's our first report, Tzeentch vs Ogors! WARNING: Armies 'from the Grey Isles' contained within! We wanted to get a report up but we had only just assembled our models so unfortunately there are no pretty painted models, it's mostly grey plastic. Hopefully that will be rectified in the near future! It'd be awesome if you could give the video a Like and maybe even subscribe to the channel if you liked it. Like I said there may not be a ton of AoS battle reports (although Dan might play against some other (more enthusiastic!) people and film those games too) but there'll probably be a few hobby-related videos too. Thanks!
  13. Picking an Army

    So, since jumping into Age of Sigmar, I've been a pretty big fan of the Destruction faction. Recently, I've jumped around between Beastclaw Raiders, mixed ogors, and Ironjawz, after running a fairly successful mixed army of goblins, orruks, and ogors. Given the new year, I'd like to ideally pick up a Chaos army at some point (preferably Skaven, once they get their shiny new battletome). That being the case, it means I will need to reduce my Destruction forces somewhat. Currently, I'm torn between my three armies, so I'd like some community input on which to carry forward. Ironjwawz List - Gordrakk - 700 Mawcrusha - 520 Megaboss - 140 Weirdnob - 120 Warchanter - 80 Warchanter - 80 Ardboyz (shields) X 20 - 360 Brutes (choppas) x 10 - 360 Brutes (choppas) x 5 - 180 Gores (choppas) x 3 - 180 Gores (choppas) x 3 - 180 Mixed Ogors - Frostlord Thundertusk - 420 Huskard Stonehorn - 360 Tyrant - 160 Ogors - 240 Ogors - 240 Ogors - 240 Ogors - 120 Leadbelcher - 160 Leadbelcher - 160 Mournfang Cavalry (clubs) - 400 Thundertusk Riders - 320 Sabres - 120 Pure Beastclaw Raiders - Frostlord Thundertusk - 420 Frostlord Stonehorn - 460 Huskard Stonehorn- 380 Hunter - 160 Mournfang Cavalry - 400 Mournfang Cavalry - 400 Yettis - 240 Sabres - 120 Sabres - 60 Thundertusk Riders - 320
  14. Hi All, So I have finally started assemmbling my beastclaw raider faction. I will be working towards a 2k list (by Christmas), but my first target is 1k. It's somewhat monster/character heavy because I have struggled in the past to get motivation to get an army built, but will add more frost sabres & yhettees as I go along. For my basing I'm going with an Ice Theme I test painted some ogors, they have a blue skin which highlights towards pallid wych flesh. Will keep the same general theme with the models in the beastclaw list. As I develop the army into a full destruction I will use these guys and have a similar paintjob for grots. Next up will be 4 sabretusks and a hunter to get at least a basic & (matched play) legal beastclaw list, then I will add a stonehorn for some monster goodness. I'm using fenrisian wolves for sabretusks and for the hunter I have started a base with a dead white lion model with a hunting spear through his body! Hope this forum provides me the motivation to keep going
  15. I've been thinking about starting a small destruction force purely because I love GW's river trolls. It got me thinking, 'What would a destruction army look like without standard stuff?' So, if I'm not allowing myself anything with orruks, ogors or grots on it (including ridden monsters) what would I take? Fimir? Giants galore? Thanks in advance!
  16. Uncool Trollgors

    Hi everyone! I can't honestly remember what the inspiration was for this project, but I'm working on converting some ogors to be more like trolls from Scandinavian folklore. I've been taking a lot of ques from artists like John Bauer and Paul Bonner (google them, you should), and the Trudvang RPG from Drakar och Demoner (its like swedish D&D). I'm talking big noses, tusks and a bit more goofyness. The idea is something like an army of giant-kin, with trolls riding larger trolls fighting alongside bigger trolls and giants. Here's what I came up with. ( forgive the pictures, I'm working on a better setup) I also converted the Frostlord rider. I still want to sculpt a crown or something on him. I also, for fun, did some sculpting on a Tomte, or gnome-lin. Hope you like them.
  17. After lots of thought I decided to theory craft a less cheese-tastic list for the upcoming tournament for a number of reasons: As my first tournament and having not met other players I want to make friends more than I want to win. I don't want to win matches due to a broken army rather than because I played well I want to dedicate my army to a sub faction rather than a mixed destruction army for my first tournament With that in mind I have crafted a potential list and would appreciate feedback or criticism. LeadersFrostlord on Stonehorn (460)Huskard on Thundertusk (340)Icebrow Hunter (160)UnitsMournfang Pack x 6 (600) (Potentially split into 3x2 or a pack of 2 and 4)Frost Sabres x 6 (180)Frost Sabres x 6 (180) (Potentially in a big squad of 12 instead as a teleporting tar pit)BattalionsSkal (60) (Allows my frost sabres to deep strike with my Icebrow hunter)Total: 1980/2000 Ok so the idea being I charge in the frostlord to do what they do best, the huskard sits behind two mournfang placed sideways to block charges and the other 4 play offensively. The icebrow hunter and 12 sabres deepstrike into objectives, getting all tar pitty while the thundertusk blasts from afar. I am also crafting one similar using yetis at the moment and will post that when I have a chance to go over it more Cheers

  19. Tyrant

  20. My gaming group and I have just started poking our heads into The Age of Sigmar, so I figured I'd boot up a blog to keep me motivated to slop paint onto my models. This will serve as a place to compile images and write ups of my hobby, fluff and gaming progress. And of course I'm welcoming any constructive criticism. I'm always looking for ways to improve myself in the hobby! To start things off, I've nearly finished Hungry Hoof, the Stonehorn mount that my Frostlord will be riding upon. I used this model as an opportunity to really push myself with the metallic weathering. The metal plates that have been pounded into the flesh of Hungry Hoof are easily the most heavily rusted things that I've painted to date. I am not entirely happy with the way that the oxidized bronze has turned out. It may need some additional highlighting to being the metals back to the fore. My favorite bits on this guy are probably the Battle Brew and Pig-ass water skin that are hanging above the Frostlord's saddle. That water skin makes me chuckle every time I look at it! All in all I am very pleased with the way that he's turning out so far. Let me know what you guys think! Next up I'll be starting on the Frostlord! As I paint these guys I'm trying to dream up names and fluff for each of them. I'll try to get all of it in here as I go.
  21. Ogors

    Shalom everyone!! I have been bouncing around army ideas now that I have a scale-able Storm Cast Eternal Army and I finally have settle on Ogors... initially I thought about Beastclaw Raiders but I couldn't come to terms with an 8 model army at 2k. Unfortunately, I don't have much time to game lately, which kinda ruins play testing army lists, so I was hoping to get some feedback on this scale-able Ogor force. I believe I have read every Beastclaw Raider Thread on these boards before I posted, I forgot who I stole some ideas from, but I especially like the Frostlord with Battlebrew on Thundertusk This isn't uber-competitive, but I don't want to get steamrolled in GH Missions either: 1k Points Tyrant (Battlebrew, Ravager) 6x Ogors 6x Ogors 3x Leadbelchers 2x Mournfang Pack 2k Points (1980) Frost Lord on Thundertusk (Battlebrew, Ravager) Butcher 6x Ogors 6x Ogors 3x Leadbelchers 4x Mournfang Pack 1x Gorgers Thundertusk Beaststrider I wanted units of 6x Ogors in order to hold objectives that need 5 miniatures, can't resist the Mournfang's or the Tundertusks. I could swap the Butcher and Mournfangs at 1k points as well. I put the Gorger in there because I needed the points and it can't hurt having a flexible reinforcement. Thanks for any input in advance!!
  22. Forgive me father, for I have sinned. I have a fully painted Chaos army but I have been unable to stop my wandering eye and I have given in to the temptation of Destruction! Even to my surprise I have decided to start a new Destruction army hence this little Blog. I have been playing Chaos (Khorne and Skaven) pretty solidly since release but something about the new Beastclaw Raiders grabbed my attention, it also did not help that I saw a fantastic version of a Megaboss converted into Blackhand from Warcraft; Warlords of Draenor. These 2 things convinced me to start a new army. Now, my army will not be a pure Beastclaw Raiders army and will instead draw from different factions within Destruction. Luckily, with my Birthday coming up I managed to pick up the following boxsets: Icewind Assault ( 2x Stonehorn/Thundertusk Kits, 4 Mournfang, Hunter, 4 Frost Sabres, and 3 Yet’s) 1 Box of 20 Savage Orcs Megaboss 1 Box of 5 Brutes I will also be picking up 20 Ard’Boyz next week. The army is based around how I want it to look on the table and access to spare bitz for conversion purposes. This is not desgined to be a competiaitive at possible army, however I also don’t want it to be a walkover. In 8th edition Warhammer one of my last armies was an ‘Orcogre’ force created for our escalation camping The Slaughtering Grounds. All the Ogre models were heavily converted with Orc heads, weapons and bitz. It was an army I was very fond of but I was ultimately worried about the impact of AoS so I (regrettably) sold it off My new vision of the army is very much based around Warcraft; Warlords of Draenor, specifically the Iron Horde. This means the main colour for the orc skin will actually be brown, I will be adding a lot of sculpted details to all the models except the Savages to give a more armoured look. The paint scheme will then be dark armour with an internal glow emanating from between armour plates and through grills. I will then be finishing off the army with ice/snow base, I love the theme of them advancing before the storm so I will be following this through to my army as well. I have my first game with my army tonight against a club mates Witch Horde so I shall be able to report back on my initial thoughts, my list for tonight will be: - Frostlord on Stonehorn - Icebrow Hunter - Megaboss - 10 Savages - 10 Savages - 3 Ogors - 2 Mournfang - 2 Mounrfang - 5 Brutes - Thundertusk Beastriders This comes in at 1980 which is beneficial as rolling on the Triumph table is pretty tasty when you can be in combat Turn 1 and all the buffs can have an impact on early combats. This is by no means an optimal list but it allows me to work with the new toys and see if it all gels together. Watch this space as I report games and hobby progress.
  23. Hey guys, So there is a tournament coming up this month (mentioned it in my previous post). They changed the points from 1000pts to 1500pts so I've decided not to take a tamurkhan led monster army as previously planned. apart from Tamurkhan not being the best I just didn't feel very enthused about the army. So instead I decided to dust off my ogors and started putting some paint on them (pictures to come). The list I decided to go with is: Frostlord on stonehorn Tyrant Butcher Bruiser BSB 4*3 ogor units with iron fists and hand weapons - full command 2 gorgers So the idea behind the list is to "throw one unit at the enemy at a time, the idea being to keep that unit within range of the bruiser BSB. My units can't really weather any punishment so I'm not aiming on having more than one combat going at a time. The two gorgers are basically on there so I can threaten someones backfield. I've found that they're garbage so don't expect too much from them, but people do tend to over commit to killing them. Frostlord whilst under the influence of the bruiser BSB is pretty damn brutal. I plan on sticking the battle brew on him so his and the stonehorns attacks will be causing mortal wounds on a 5+ in addition to any other dmg they cause. In testing he reliably dishes out about 26 wounds worth of dmg when not too injured. I'll post up some pics shortly and also do some battle reports as well after the tournament which is on the 20th :). ***Edit*** Here are some WIP shots of my stonehorn
