About this blog

Documents the build up of a Beasts of Chaos army based around Dragon Ogors.  This is part of a New Year, New Army competition at my local game store.

Brayherd Enter the Frey

Brayherd Enter the Frey

Finally completed this months set of models that sees the Brayherd reinforcements.  I went with a fairly straightforward paint scheme, partially because that is what I like and partially because of time.  This competition really helps push to finish things.  I know a bunch of "not quite finished" parts of these models but am still pretty happy with them on the table.  Definitely better to be done.  I tried a bunch of different skin colors and a couple hair colors on the Ungors.  Let me know

1000 pts complete!

1000 pts complete!

Finished the Ghorgon just under the wire.  This brings me to 950 points so I'm calling the first 1k complete.  I'll either keep it there for the command point or add geminids. I think I'm going to take a break from building the army for a bit to work on other armies.  I'll keep posting battle reports here as I learn to actually play this army.

First 500 pts Complete

First 500 pts Complete

I've finished the first month of our painting challenge.  Just in time because we have a 500 pt tournament next Saturday. I didn't go nearly as far as I would like, especially on the Shaggoth.  I'm really calling them done for time constraints.  The Shaggoth deserves a lot more detail and highlighting.  I'll probably come back to it next month.  The target for next month is only 250 pts so I should have time. Overall, I'm pretty happy with them.  The pressure to complete helped me not

It Begins...

My local game store is doing an event where everyone competes to complete a new army and then have tournaments at intervals with different sizes. https://www.facebook.com/events/2315441201860803/?ti=cl I have always loved the look of the Dragon Ogors.  With the recent release of Beasts of Chaos I thought this would be a good opportunity to build up an army. My first 500 pts will be: Heardstone Shaggoth Two units of Dragon Ogors

Thoughts on army background

I've been thinking a bit about the background of this Thunderscorn based army.  For whatever reason, from a narrative perspective, I really like Ghur, the realm of beasts.  Part of what made me finally take the plunge on Dragon Ogors was the fact that it gave me an excuse to take monsters in may army.  I really liked the book Bladestorm, which followed Thostos Bladestorm, a Lord Celestant of the Celestial Vindicators, as he leads a Warrior Chamber into Ghur to take a Chaos fort with a realmgate

Some progress, my leader is born

The Shaggoth is the most complicated resin model I've done (lots of metal back in the day and plastic recently).  I was out of the game when the finecast change came.  I think it mostly went together well.  I pinned the horns and am not sure I love how they went together. I would eventually like to make a custom herdstone, I'm thinking an obelisk with a lighting rod on top.  To keep things simple for now, I'm just doing a regular herdstone.  I'll want that if I ever run regular beasts I sup

Dragon Ogors...Assemble!

Wow, I am way behind.  We have a 500 pt tournament next week and I finally got the Dragon Ogors put together.  They took much longer than I thought they would.  I leraned, after the first, to have the six main parts fully cleaned prior to gluing any if it.  I almost had a case where the glue dried with the parts just slightly off and the torso didn't fit, yikes. Overall, I super impressed how they fit together to hide the seems (much better than the Palladors).  That being said, after primi

Kronak Awakens

Kronak Awakens

Kronak, awakens.   The crack of Azyrite thunder in the distance - was it a dream.  Then twice more.  The distinct sound he hadn’t heard for a millennium.  Not like the barbaric imitation heard in this realm, the realm of beasts.  More still.  There can be no doubt. Kronak ascends the roughly carved steps to the mountain peak where his decrepit tower stands.  At the top of the tower, he turns his enormous looking glass in the direction of the storm.  It creaks from disuse.  He sees teal clad

First Blood

First Blood

Kronak takes a small vanguard of thunderscorn through the realm gate.  Their first step towards finding a way home.  They arrive in the realm of Ghyran and quickly discover five other forces to contend with.  "To arms brothers and sisters."   We had a small tournament with 500 pt armies we built for the campaign.  We played 4x4 tables with a bit of narrative.  Realm was Ghyran and each game gave benefits to winners. It was a bit rough for Kronak and his Thunderscorn.  With only th

Dragon Ogors Work in Progress

Dragon Ogors Work in Progress

Base coated the Dragon Ogors this morning.  Trying out a new airbrush and am super happy how quick they came out.  The rest will all be brush but it was nice to lay down the base coats in these big models. I hoping to start laying in details later today.

Battle vs Moonclan in Chamon

Battle vs Moonclan in Chamon

Kronak has been fighting from realm gate to realm gate, desperately trying to find his way back to Azyr.  He steps through the latest gate, the taste of metal in the air, Chamon, and it is cold, very cold.  As his army makes their way through the freezing environment, they find their next gate only to find a bad moon shrine, and an army led by a huge Troggoth arrayed against them.  He sends his expendable breyherd to encircle...he will not be stopped here. ------- I got my first game i

Monster Time

Monster Time

Finally time to build a real monster.  The Ghorgon will bring the army to 950 points   so far fun to build.  Painting will commence soon.  I decided to leave some of the detailed hanging parts off for now.  I will definitely add the bell around his neck.  I may not add the other pieces.  Sometimes I think GW models get a little to busy.

Reinforcements

Reinforcements

The Dragon Ogors need some help.  We've recruited a local Breyherd.  This months figures: a unit of Beastigors, a unit of Ungor Raiders and a Beastlord to lead them. Only need 250 points this month and after the last set of games, I figured I needed some bodies. Assembled and started to paint.  If I finish these early, I'll probably paint a Sorcerer Lord on Manticore that I've been meaning to finish.
