Warmaster Battle Report: Orcs of the White Hand Vs Dwarves of the Mountains

Together, my lord Sauron, we shall rule this Middle-earth. The old world will burn in the fires of industry. 
Forests will fall. A new order will rise. We will drive the machine of war with the sword and the spear and the iron fist of the Orc. 

So last night as a rather busy Watford Wargaming Federation I had my first game of Warmaster ever!

My long suffering opponent was also playing his first game and came armed with little Dwarven Gits.

Anyway here's some pictures of our game.

Orctober 2015 Pt.4 - Whom do you serve?

Whelp, Orctober is coming to the end and I've completed my goal of having 1k Warmaster Orcs painted (Not a legal list but as this is part of a greater whole it matters little).

For Sale: Chaos Dwarves Batch 1

Ok boys and girls it's time for a Chico Sales post.

Money is tight and many of my projects are stalling because of it, so It's time to let some of the older loved but unused bits go to fund current ones/pay the bills to allow me to get a few extra toys.

I'm starting with batching up my Chaos Dwarves and selling them on.

This is Batch 1.

All CD's are £5 ea, UK based but can post Worldwide.

Postage extra but if buying a few I can knock a little bit of the price.

If interested you can email me at Chico 4 Life AT Gmail DOT Com or message me (Chico Danks) on Facebook (Leave a message on this post alerting me to the email/pm though).

Tale of 4 Oldhammer Gamers - Pt.6 - Hobgoblin Army

'Ello my sexy and lovable readers of OoaB!

To refresh your memory the 4 of us (James from Realm of Chaos 80's, Steve from Eldritch Epistles & The Warlord named as Paul from The Blackhole) are all taking part in a Oldhammer version of the iconic Tales of 4 Gamers.

The end reasult will be a 4 way Battle Royal at Bring Out Your Lead 2016.

This is now my 3 months instalment (I'm working one month ahead of everyone else at current).

So this is my complete force so far around 300-350 points (Yup Hobbos are cheap).

Orctober 2015 Pt.3 - Looks like meat's back on the menu boys!

As promised a update of my Warmaster LotR Orc army, it's slow going but I'm rather enjoying seeing it build up. 

Plus as I have so many units I can jump from one to another if a unit get boring or the colour starts to hurt my wee eyes, so I'm much further along then the finished picture look as I have 4/5 WIP units as well :)

Space Cadets: Away Mission Review

Long before the threat of the Nemesis, before the perils of warp drive or the founding of our own Space Academy, humanity experienced a Golden Age of space exploration. The mineral riches of the thriving Moon colony inspired legions of hearty Earth citizens to seek their fortunes in space. Humble rockets probed the farthest reaches of the solar system in an eager quest for resources, and brave colonists forged homes wherever they could survive. Pioneer life was hard, but the men and women who worked and raised their families on those planets and asteroids had much to be proud of.

Then the rumours began — whispered tales of frontier abductions and sightings of mysterious creatures. By the time the secret invasion was exposed, the aliens were everywhere. Families had been stolen away by slavers from the stars, and the peace-loving survivors had no choice but to arm themselves and fight. Fight to stop the alien attacks! Fight to free the helpless abductees! Fight to throw the aggressors back into space and end forever their power to threaten humanity!

Thus was born the Rocket Patrol – an organization of brave and hearty women and men dedicated to defending humanity and taking the fight to the alien menace from the stars.

Arhhh yes a lack of Blog posts of late I know, work and all that blah blah...

But I did get to game a few games of Space Cadets: Away Missions which were quite enjoyable.

It's published by Stronghold Games but not being a massive Boardgame Geek means rather little to me I'm afraid.

Orctober 2015 Pt.2 - The Union of the Two Towers

The world is changing. Who now has the strength to stand against the armies of Isengard and Mordor? 

To stand against the might of Sauron and Saruman and the union of the two towers? 
Together, Lord Sauron, we shall rule this Middle-Earth. The old world will burn in the fires of industry. 

The forests will fall. A new order will rise. We will drive the machinery of war with the sword and the spear and the iron fist of the Orc. 

We have only to remove those who oppose us.

So dispite a bone crushing week of work and the joy of a new (Evil) furball I've made good progress on my Warmaster LotR themed Orc army.

Orctober 2015 Pt.1 - Mordor Marches!

Now as I'm sure we all know Erny from the self titled Erny's Place runs the Oldhammer version of Orctober every year.

Now this year I was going to sit it out as I'm quite burned out on Greenskins as I'm doing a Hobgoblin force for Tale of 4 Oldhammer Gamers & my Mordheim Orc Royal Court.

But as my treat for starting my new job I ordered some 10mm Orcs from Copplestone Castings and they turned up less then 24 hours after ordering woot!

Now I only done a small order but enough to get started on for the time being.

Evil Space Dorfs you say?


Yes ok it's been a little while since the last Evil Dorf update, but that sneaky chap Geoff over at Oakbound Studios (Notice the name change!) has been pushing forward despite being a rather busy chap with his new 32mm Legends of British Steampunk range and other bits!. 

Really go check them out,while not Oldhammer are rather purdy indeed.

Now those which follow Oakbound may have spotted a picture on the Oakbound FB Group (Go join it you tart!)

Those which haven't well here it is!

Distractions.. Bloody Distractions.

I've kind of been distracted of late when it's come to painting/Wargaming/Bloging which is a kind of a shame, but in it's way a little break as helped me refocus on what projects I want to finish or even start (Keep reading) and what I can put aside or sell on.

So what's the plan Bananaman! 

Well.. I'm going to try my hand at um.. 10mm!

My copy of Warmaster from Ebay for £3
