My, what big teeth you have...

With the Waagh! growing, it's time to start thinking display board. I've toyed with the idea of a sacked Imperial City, but at Adepticon I came across these Armorcast pieces:

Each piece is 6" long and about the height of an Orc. They look suitably Orcy, but I need to figure out how best to implement them...

O&G Odds & Ends

With Adepticon passed and things getting back to 'normal', I've made some random progress on my growing Waagh.

These are my scratch-built spear-chukkas I started way back in October. I cut the central stem in half so they're shorter and more git-friendly. I also added support beams on the bottom so it's more sturdy. Basecoat colors added. With a goblin crew, not sure exactly what models to use short of ordering/ebaying actual chukka crew models. Night Goblins may have to suffice for now.

Just about done with my second unit of Wolf Riders. Just need to add grass and quivers.

And lastly, I've started piecing together some Night Goblins. Picked up some clearance GF9 bases from Games Plus. I cut off the bevel on one side and presto! I can connect two small units to make one big happy one.

(this will be 8 ranks deep, and not 5 ranks)

Adeption 2009 - that's a wrap.

WHEW! So Adepticon 2009 has come and gone. Had a great time - didn't fare too well in the singles competition. Lot of super-competitive lists this year. Typically Adepticon has been more about fluffy lists than competitive. Someone attributed the change to the lack of Grand Tournaments this year. Makes sense.

Here's my teammate and I assembled ready to roll! Mark really pulled through in the end in terms of painting. For a slow painter, he accomplished a ton!

Our first team game; slaves look across the field to waiting demons.

Can slaves stand up to a block of 8 Blood Knights with a Lord?

Unfortunately no.

In the meantime Orcs make their way upfield.


I didn't take any pics in our second game, but got some good shots of game three:

Staring eachother down...

Wave upon wave of rats!

Demon Bloodletters outflanked and outnumbered - swarmed by vermin!

This was just a ridiculous 14' long model of an Ork spaceship. The amount of detail was awesome. Now, to build a fleet of these...
