Thanks guys!

@ DeafNala
Ah, a rite of passage... While the painting itself might be a bit tedious the result will be worth it!

@ Necoho
Thanks! Glad you have enjoyed the read!
1 the banner is from the High Elf Lord on Dragon
2 the shafts are made with plastic rods


Quick update:

Finished the armour, skin and halberd tops, so most of the larger surfaces are done... Next up are the shoes, hats and the shafts. After tthat I will finish each model individually, painting the hair and correcting any mistakes. I don't think I will be able to finish them before my next battle, which is this friday, but I will get them done before the end of the month.

If these are done I will be able to field a fully painted 2500 points army, maybe even 3000 points! That calls for something special...

I've got a fresh battle-report for you!

This afternoon I played a battle with Quizmaster and his Lizardmen. He has an Empire army but he wanted to try out some of the new Lizardmen stuff. Hope you enjoy the battle-report (and please ignore the incorrect spelling of the Lizardmen units)...


Lizardmen deployment... He brought two units of flyers, three units of Skink skirmishers, a Salamander, Razordon, a big horde of Skinks and Kroxigors, Temple Guard with Slann and one of those new dinosaurs with a "lazor" on it's back...


Stirland deployment... I used the very same list as I did last battle against Was1974 (that battle-report can be found a couple of posts back)... I wanted to give my Steam Tank a second chance. I had some doubts about swapping my Wizard Lord for another General on a Gryphon, but in the end I decided to keep the Wizard (still not convinced I really need a Wizard)... Horde of Halberdiers, Free Company, Pistoliers, Inner Circle Knights, Demi Gryph Knights, Steam Tank, Cannon, Helblaster and two flying characters. As far as I am concerned, a pretty balanced list, it contains a little bit of everything...

I got the first turn (yay!)... I even managed to generate some steam points without blowing up my Steam Tank! Succes! With my Cannon (and Steam Tank) I targeted the new Bastillodon. The Steam Tank failed to wound, but my Cannon must have struck a weak-point in it's carpache armour and killed the beast with a single shot... Huzzah!


The left flank... I used my Vanguard move to push the Pistoliers forward so they could charge the Skinks in their first turn. The Pistoliers withered the initial shooting and managed to drive the Skinks off! Although the Pistoliers went in full persuit the small creatures managed to get away. This leaved my Pistoliers out in the open, ready to be charged by the Ripperdactyls... In the next turn they did not only defeat the Ripperdactyls (killed two with just the stand and shoot) but also the Razordon! A few turns later they were defeated by the Skinks that slipped through their fingers in the very first turn... Nevertheless, they single-handedly routed the entire left flank of the Lizardmen army!


In the centre of the battlefield both lines advanced (albeit cautiously in the case of the Stirladers) on the objective...


On my right flank my Demi Gryph Knights had no problems, dealing with a unit of Skink Skirmishers, a unit of Pterodactyls and a Salamander... However, they were drawn far away from where the actual fighting would have to be done and played no further part in the battle...


Centre of the battlefield... The two armies clash in deadly combat!


Pushing his machine to the limit, my Steam Tank smashed into the Skinks, killing them in droves under his massive bulk... The Kroxigors are quite capable of damaging the Tank. When we ended the battle, these monsters managed to inflict four wounds!


Both my Captain on Pegasus and my Knights charged the Slann and his Temple Guard... Neither side managed to break the enemy and the combat dragged on.


This is where we ended the battle, after four full turns we ran out of time... Of my Knights only my Warrior Priest remained, he and the Captain would have to stand up to the Temple Guard alone. The Steam Tank was still squashing Skinks under it's iron-shod wheels while the General on his Gryphon and the Halberdiers were closing in... Both the Lizardmen flanks were destroyed and in the centre the cold-blooded Lizards were seriously out-numbered by the Stirlanders... How it would have ended? Nobody knows...

Again a very tense and fun battle which was fought in a relaxed atmosphere... In all honesty I must admit that I was very, very lucky with some crucial dice-rolls. We both had a great time, exchanging all kinds of hobby related stories (this was our first battle), so you can expect some more battle-reports soon!

Things I have learned this battle:
- Mortars SUCK!!!
- Pistoliers kick ass!!!
- I don't know if I really need a Wizard Lord (he played little part in the battle)...
- Cannons can kill big things...

And a little update on my Halberdiers...


Flesh is done, uniform is done, armour is done... Still need to do the shoes, hats and leather straps and belts. Also need to paint the shafts of the halberds. I hope to get some more painting done tomorrow.

Thanks for watching! As always, your feedback is greatly appreciated, so please let me know what you think...

Great to see another battle report. The horde is shaping up well, too.

Thanks!

Well, there's some good news and some bad news...

The bad news is that I won't get my Halberdiers finished before the end of the month, but the good news is that I did play another battle! And not just any battle...

FBI and me played a huge 5000 points battle using only combat troops (so no shooting)! Playing this battle took two afternoons during which I remembered to take quite some pictures so this battle-report will be posted in several parts...

EPIC BATTLE-REPORT PART 1


Don't panic, this isn't the actual battle, just the pre-battle chaos... With 10.000 points on the table it took a while to get everything prepared. I used my Stirlanders and FBI fielded his Dwarfs which were supplemented by my own Dwarfs (the ones on the red and white bases are mine). To make the battle less predictable we decided on random deployment, dividing both deployment zones in three and rolling a D3 for every unit. This resulted in some very interesting situations...


My left flank was heavily populated and included my horde of Knights, Flagellants, one of my hordes of Greatswords, a horde of Halberdiers and my Free Company...


My centre included a unit of Demigryphs, my Captain on Pegasus, a Giant and a horde of both Halberdiers and Greatswords...


My right flank included the other unit of Demigryphs and both my Generals on Gryphon...

The Dwarf deployment was equally interesting, maybe even more so... FBI didn't roll a single 3 or 4, leaving his centre completely empty!


His left flank included the Anvil of Doom, three hordes of Dwarf Warriors, a large horde of Slayers (these are scary, including an unhealthy number of Giant slayers and two beefed up characters) and a unit of Longbeards. There were also two units of Miners...




My Flagellants crashed into a horde of Dwarf Warriors... It took two full turns of combat, but in the end the Dwarfs were beaten and the few survivors were run down by the frothing Flagellants which then overran straight into the waiting Ironbreakers...


The right flank of the Dwarfs included a big horde of Ironbreakers, a horde of Longbeards and the fourth horde of Warriors...

Both armies were well supported by several characters. To limit the hassle, we both used little to no magic items at all (save for a few runes).

Before I delve deeper into the report I need to make clear that this kind of battle of hardly a serious affair. Neither is it about winning or losing! Fielding such unbalanced (or very balanced, depending on your point of view) armies makes for fun games, but you miss out on the other phases of the game. Still, we had a very, very great time! We both had moments of great thriumph and bitter defeat, outrageous luck and utted bad luck... Epic combats were fought and rivers of blood were spilled! In short, this battle was full of the stuff of legends, things that make Warhammer battles fun!

I have so many pics that I will sort them not by turn but by combat and hopefully create a sort of narrative...


My Flagellants crashed into a horde of Dwarf Warriors... The combat lasted two full turns! The last surviving Dwarfs were overrun by the frothing lunatics...


The Flagellants ran straight into the waiting Ironbreakers...


The Ironbreakers wasted no time and slaughtered the Flagellants to a man... A proper doom!

EPIC BATTLE REPORT PART 2


My Giant had a great time, jumping up and down on a horde of Dwarf Warriors... He didn't cause many casualties (in fact he killed more Dwarfs when he died and fell right on top of the unit than he did in two rounds of combat) but at least he died happy...


My Cavalry thundered across the battlefield, charging straight into the Longbeards... The venerable Dwarfs didn't stand a chance! The Knight's charge hit them with as much subtlety as a brick to the face... Well over half the unit was wiped out and in return they failed to inflict any casualties at all. It was nu surprise the Dwarfs were forced to flee... The Dwarfs managed to outrun my cavalry, they rallied, were charged again, and wiped out, during my next turn...

I had expected them to be effective, but for the Knights to be so devastating, I would never have guessed...


On the other end of the table my Demigryph Knights bounced of a unit of Dwarf Warriors and were chased down by the Stunties...


Determined to avenge this defeat my General charged the Warriors in the following turn... He did quite well (his Gryphon did even better) and he survived the turn. At this time FBI refused to accept my challenge...


In the next turn The Miners joined the fun, finally forcing the General to flee. I have no more pics show you the rest of this story, but the General rallied, destroyed the Miners and charged the Warriors again... His Gryphon was finally slain and he was forced to flee. He rallied again and stood his ground when the Dwarfs charged him (there were only around 30 of them, poor buggars) but after losing the combat he was forced to flee of the table... Epic!

My second General suffer a fate far less glorious... He charged another unit of Warriors, lost the combat and was ran down without the Dwarfs even breaking a sweat!


This pic shows the two armies closing the gap...


Here you can see my Knights after they have wiped out the Longbeards... Also on the picture are my Halberdiers locked in a deadly struggle with a unit of Hammerers. Despite being few in number, the stubborn Dwarfs reaped a heavy toll on my Halberdiers...


My Wizard... I decided to help my Halberdiers out a bit, casting Regrowth on the unit... Using three dice I managed to get an irresistable force! I gained two Halberdiers but due to the explosion I lost ten members of my Free Company... Sacrifices must be made...

EPIC BATTLE-REPORT PART 3!

I tried to avoid them for as long as possible, but there was no ignoring the Slayers...


I charged the Slayers with both my Greatswords and my Captain on Pegasus, hoping to give me an edge in the coming combat...

But then I did something supremely stupid! And I mean really, really STUPID! Sticking your weiner in a wall-socket kind of stupid! I used my Wizard to cast Flesh to Stone on my Greatswords... Smart move? No! Slayers hit harder when their target is tougher... I had just thrown away most of my own armour save... To make matters worse, I own a Dwarf army myself, so I am supposed to know stuff like this... We both laughed sooooooo hard!

I blame my Wizard, he never faced Dwarfs before... I can imagine my General (who was with the Greatswords) gesturing furiously as soon as he became aware what the Wizard intended to do...


STUPID!!!


The Slayers almost wiped out my Greatswords but suffered terrible losses in return...


On the other flank my Cavalry had moved around the house and charged the Ironbreakers... Even though the Elite Dwarfs were a lot better armoured than the Longbeards, the unit suffered a lot of casualties and were caught as they fled the combat...

At this point we decided to end the battle... Both armies still had some forces on the field but they were spread out across the entire table. Continueing the battle would have meant a couple of turns of moving. Besides, after two full afternoons it was more than enough... As I stated in the first part of this battle-report, we both had a great time! The dice were as fickle as ever, failing both of us on critical rolls. I can fully recommend playing a different battle like this once in a while.

The absolute stars of the battle (at least from my point of view) were my horde of Inner Circle Knights... They wiped out two full hordes of Elite Dwarfs without taking as much as a single casualtie... Awesome! Admitted, the unit and characters costed close to 1000 points, but still...

Things I have learned this battle:
- Mortars SUCK!!!
- A horde of Cavalry hits like a ton of bricks...
- Slayers are scary...
- Slayers and Flesh to Stone don't mix...
- Big battles are fun...
- Sacrifices must be made...
- I like my General on Gryphon combo, he kicked ass!!!

Hi guys,

Well, it has been a while since I last updated here... I have done some work on my Empire army but have primarily spent my hobby time on starting up Flames of War (a US Armored Company and a complete set of 15 mm scenery). If people are interested I could post some pics of that project here, too...

After attending Crisis in Antwerpen last week I have found some new inspiration to expand my dungeon even further...

One of the first stands I visited was the stand of Thomarillion where I picked up a whole bunch of cupboards...


Nice stuff, and they fit the scale of Hirst blocks very well... I already have a nice selection of their furniture, most of which I can reproduce myself, and most of these new cupboards will be molded, too...

After a tour of the show I revisited their stand and picked up a couple of statues, too...


Extremely nice and atmospheric statue...

This is one of those things that I would like to have a lot of, but that I am not willing to pay for.


I picked up three of the statues. Two for immediate use and the third for a little experiment... I really wanted to make a mold of this statue, but the shape isn't suited for plaster. The sollution was pretty simple, cut the statue in half. I never tried this before, but it turned out decent enough... I used a fine-tooth hobby saw to do the cutting.


After that it was just as easy as making a new mold...


The finished mold and the master...


Master and the first cast... Both halves came out without a problem...




When put together the seam is still visible (this pic was taken before cleaning the model up), but after painting it should be less prominent...

I already had a clear idea of what I wanted to do with these...






I hope these pieces will be a nice addition to my modular dungeon. I intend to add a couple of the same pieces, but the statue would also be very suited to be used elsewhere.

Thanks to this statue I have started expanding my dungeon again, expect more pics soon!

I also picked up this 'little' beautie...


A rather large Landsknecht from Pegaso models... Just stumbled upon this model and picked it up on a whim. It will serve as a most spectacular statue, I guess...

CONGRATULATIONS on some EXCELLENT finds! It occurred to moi that if you just used the front half of the Reaper statue, you could attach it to the wall of the alcove to make it a fresco piece. At any rate, enjoy all the new pieces.  What a Face 

By the way, I meant to P.M. you on this, but, since you posted, I can make it a more public caveat. Sometime after your thread hits about 45 or so pages, the system will automatically break off 40 pages to form a separate thread. This thread can not be reattached to the new thread. My Maudeheim thread suffered this fate. I just didn't want you the go nuts when it happens.  clown

Thanks for the heads-up... Still a long way to go, but now I can prepare myself for the shock;) 

Update time!

Last week I finished another seven modules for my dungeon.


Four of the seven new pieces... I finished the two new dead ends and two large intersections. Not on the picture are the remaining three smaller 1 Inch pieces.

In preparation for a game of Skirmish or a Zombie hunt (or maybe even a game of Dungeons and Panzers) we set up the dungeon. Here are some shots from the lay-out...
















With the addition of the latest modules my dungeon will almost fill the entire table... There is still some room for further expansion.


And my favorite shot...

More updates coming soon! Your feedback is greatly appreciated, so please, let me know what you think...

The Dungeon is BEAUTIFUL & IMPRESSIVE...I love the red & white diamond checks & the multilevel. GREAT WORK!  thumbsup 
It looks to be inhabited by obsessively neat creatures; ergo, I think you need to have a Band of slovenly Adventures...think Hagar the Horrible & Crew.  What a Face

Very impressive stuff! Love it!

Apart from the adventurers and monsters, the other thing that it needs is clutter and weathering. It looks too neat the way it is now.

Sooooo, that was two and a half years ago...

I haven't been to Mordheim for a long, long time... Even so, Mordheim never left my hobby agenda and I kept making plans and coming up with ideas.

On to the update...


A new, impossibly large statue based on a Colossal Lords model... The plasic bottle is for scale...






One of the ideas that will change the vision of my own little corner, I will be adding vines with clumps of foliage...


My giant tree will also be full of green foliage...


The sorry state of my table as it is now... Far from finished and very, very dusty...


And this is where I spent my time the last couple of years, 15mm Flames of War...

More updates coming soonish...

Thanks for the feedback, guys! It has been too long...

While I thoroughly enjoyed myself with Flames of War (still do, actually), I hardly played/collected/painted any Fantasy at all. Apart from few select models I didn't add anything to my Stirlanders, and after that last battle report haven't played a single battle...

Anyway, here's another small update, just easing back into the atmosphere of Mordheim...






A couple of pictures from the first building. I'm ashamed to say that this was (and still is) the only building that's fully painted. It took some time to get rid of the layer of dust that had accumulated over the years, so there might even be some left.

I forgot all about the working doors and shutters... By Sigmar, I love all those details!

I think the building came out quite ok, hope you agree... I must admit I have had many second (and third, and fourth, fifth...) thoughts about adding the foliage. Now that I started, I am almost sorry I didn't do it sooner...


Another small statue done, but the main focus should be the big 'un... Painting should be fairly finished, time to add some creeping vines and some foliage... This thing is HUGE... Weighs around 550 grammes, complete with its plaster base.

More updates on the way!

That is a really nice building. And the dust only adds to the atmosphere.

I love the foliage on the ruin. I was looking at photos of a ruined cathedral the other day. The interior is completely over grown. Of course I'm thinking that Mordheim growth should be a bit threatening, too, mind.

Thanks guys! Good to be back... I got a small update...


First up, the big statue... I also updated my pigeon coop with some creeping vines and some foliage.




Some of the updated pieces of scenery... Apart from the building they are all smaller pieces, but you should be able to see where I'm going...


A small update to the table itself... I constructed two arches. Both are not yet glued down, mainly for practical/painting reasons.


A small detail I added to the big statue to 'Empire him up a bit'...




And the final part of this update, a couple of signal posts... I had these bits lying around as I originally planned to use them for my Empire army. Still a work in progress, hope you like them...
