Warriors Reinforcements

I know, I had said that after the Dragon that was it for the warriors of chaos and I would start a new army, but a lot has changed since then.

A couple of weeks ago was the Summer Incursion tournament at Maelstrom Games. Another great weekend and managed to end my loosing streak by winning 2 of my 6 games which is great for me. Winning 2 games has made a big difference.

Then there's the matter of 8th edition which looks like it's going to give power back to the infantry man. Considering my army is about 80% infantry blocks this is a really good thing.

So I have been looking at my army to see what changes/improvements need to be made.
So here's my 'to do list'.

1. I have a Chaos Warrior unit and Chosen unit both at 10 man strong with Great-weapons. I think these are to small, so I'm going to add an extra 5 men to each units.

2. I picked up 2 new minis from Maelstrom which I intend to use both as characters. They are both from a company called Enigma Miniatures and look really nice.

I want to use this guy as a lord. I given him a flail which is a little different.

This one is going to be my Battle Standard. I want to do one which is on foot so he's right in the thick of it with my foot troops, plus they are greatly improved in 8th, now being able to re-roll all leadership tests within 12".

3. I have 3 ogres in my bits box which I think I will make up as a command for me existing unit. These guy look like they will be get better in 8th too!

4. I think I might add some funky units to. I'm thinking maybe a giant, hellcannon and warshine.

I will post up some better pictures of the characters when I've added some green stuff.

Necromunda, Blast from the past

Played something a bit different at the club last night. Me and my mate John thought it would be a great idea to get Nercomunda out for a bit of a change.

Its still a brilliant game and brought back a ton of memories. I highly recomend getting old games out to any body.

Here's some pics from our game, a really good mix of the old card scenery and my newer 40k stuff

Dragons and Summer Incursions

Wow, its been over a month since my last post. The main reason is I have spent that time just painting this bloody dragon. Sometimes I find painting like reading a book, if its a book I enjoy I can read it really quick, but if I'm not feeling it, it can drag.

Anyway I'm happy with the results. If I could go back I would make some changes, like a more exciting conversion for the rider instead of a mostly Kit-bashed one.

Also I have just finished it in time for the Summer Incursion tournament at Maelstrom Games next weekend which was my goal!

Without further ado, here's it is.

Because of it's size, I was finding it really hard to photograph.

Close-ups of the rider.

Pic's of the base. I'm really happy with this. I was a bit worried that the stone may have turned out a bit bland.

Also, I did a couple of pins into the base and its rock. Much more sturdy than it looks.

I'm not sure how i'm going to get on gaming with this in my army, I've never used a massive monster before.

I must emit I'm not confident about the tournament next week. I never used a dragon before, had no practice games since my last tournament and I've had to sacrifices a few units to fit it into the 2000 points which makes my army feel very small.

Here's what i'm taking, I not going to post up my actual list (don't want to give away all my tricks).

Here's the reinforcements. At Summer Incursion you get extra points if you fighting a tougher army than you, for example Daemons.

I came last at the Winter Incursion, so my target this time is to come anywhere but last. (although I did get good prize last time!)

I will try take more pictures this time and post some posts over the weekend.
