We'd better get back, 'cause it'll be dark soon, and they mostly come at night... mostly.

So with renewed vigor I have jumped feet first back into Warhammer Fantasy.  Since I already have upwards of 3-4k of painted Chaos dwarves I have decided to add on an allied contingent of Orcs and Goblins, focusing on Goblin hordes, Black Orcs, Spider, Wolf and Boar riders.  I have quite a bit of the Mantic Orcs and Goblins due to the Kings of War Kickstarter, with a ton of models coming at the end of the month in the form of the stretch goals which will add in a lot of other cool models to the mix.  So here are some test models. 


 Goblins are going with a blue skin tone and the Orcs will be a very dark brown flesh.  They need a lot more work as these are unfinished test models but you get the general concept.


This will be my Black Orc regiment.  Note the mix of 2-handed, sword and board, and two one handed weapons. 


More Black Orcs


This guy is AWESOME.  He is gonna be my siege giant.  He is a beastman model but painted up right he will be right out of the forges of Zharr Naggrund.   The minotaur head will lend itself well to the Bull Theme that Chaos Dwarves have.


Back of the Giant


This guy is just SICK as my Goblin Big Boss on Gigantic Spider.  the model was SUCH a pain to put together but I think it just looks so menacing.  Beside him are some of the Spider Rider units that will accompany him.  

Next update I will showcase my Chaos Dwarves.  This army was a labor and I can't wait to get it in pics for you all to see.

You Apes Want to Live Forever??????

Warhammer 40K.....One of my first Miniature games back int he 90's  I remember trying for a long time to resist and crumbling utterly when I was working at a game shop in Alabama in my Army  days.  Its been through many re0iterations and I still play occasionally to this day. So withot further delay I present,

WARHAMMER 40K MEGABATTLE 2013!!!!

So the stage was set with 4500 points per side we had Don playing Imperial Fists, Dennis playing Dark Angels, and Chris playing Ultramarines.  On the EVIL side was me playing my Relictors Space Marines with Inquisitorial Allies (They had been excommunicated for using Daemon weapons, though they are not officially Chaos), Al PLaying Legion of the Damned, and Scott playing Chaos Space Marines of the Nurgle Flavor. ( God that must taste HORRIBLE).  The stage was set.  the mission was to capture and hold the two objectives on either side of the table.  


My Relictors in With Al's Plague Zombies and Scott's Chaos


More Relictors Specifically the Inquisitorial Contingent 


Guarding the Flank More Relictors


Don's Imperial Fists Very Nicely painted


Dennis's's Dark Angels and Chris's Ultramarines.  Both good looking armies.  Chirst Ultramarines were right out of the Old Ultramarines codex.  Very Cool.


More Imperial Fists


Scott's Chaos and Al's Legion.  Sore really cool conversion work on the Chaos both defilers screamed bloated burgle foulness.


The rest of the Legion Guarding the right Flank.  Al had some great conversion in there with Spawns, Plague Zombies  and a cool mounted Lord


The Dark Angels Advance down the street to the first objective. While the Ultramarines bring up the rear on foot.



The advance of the plague zombies commences as they shamble across the board trying to guard the objective.


 One of the ravenwing speeders moved over to support the advance of the Ultramarines.


Templats came crashing down as the Defiler shot at the advancing forces.


The Imperial Advance continues as Don cautiously brings his forces across the table.



Making thier way tot he objective the tactical squad seems very pleased, getting ready to assault the Rhino


The inquisitors advacne through the oil refinery, while the dreadnaught was unfortunately immobilized.  He still has plenty of things to shoot at though.


Witht he destruction of the Rhino, the plague advances forward assaulting the Tactical squad with the help of the Plague Zombies and the Relictors. Don bring his assault squad in and they are cut down by the combined power of the forces of chaos.  In the end the land raider and devastator squad prove too much for the chaplain and the Relictors squad


The dreadnought manages to destroy the razorback and the squad kills a few of the guys in side after Immobilizing and killing a ravenwing speeder ont he edge of the building.  The inquisitorial contingent gets stuck with some slow advancing rolls through the refinery.  


More advancing by the Plague Zombies and Legion of the damned  Unfortunately both defilers are knocked out pretty quick  so the chaos side had to rely on a lot of advancing into the enemy's threat zone



Not in pictures was the EPIC struggle between Don's terminators and librarian with Scotts Nurgle Marines and lord.  in the end the librarian was killed claiming their warlord soul for chaos.

At the end of the battle the Dark angels manages to crush most of the right flank and score that objective while the Chaos claimed the other.  It ended up being a minor victory for them since we each had an objective and they got first blood and deployment zone and we got their warlord so they won by one point.  All in all a great game.
