Warhammer Fantasy: High Elves

Permanent Linkby Baragash on Thu Apr 07, 2011 8:42 pm

So back here started the 2011 1st Quarter Hobby Challenge. Unfortunately, as Stormwing needed a lot of work, including use of two-part epoxy and green stuffing, I didn't quite finish him, so I failed the challenge :(

Got the rest done: 2x 10 Swordmasters, 2x10 Sea Guard, 2x5 Reavers, Prince Althran on foot and on Griffon, Caladris, and 10 Horrors and the Changeling.

My Q2 challenge is currently being decided here

Events: Salute 2011

Permanent Linkby Baragash on Wed Apr 06, 2011 5:21 pm

So I'll be off to Salute 2011 on Saturday 16th April. Going to be catching up with Mantic, Forgeworld and KR and a few other stands whilst I'm there.

And whilst I'm there I'll be picking up the following that I just ordered for collection:

3 of these...
...to use in the mega campaign I'm planning later in the year.

This dude...
...for my Astral Claws/Tyrant's Legion

This dude...
...for nostalgia (for now?) ;)

So Dwarf King's Hold turned up :)


Gubbinz (rulebook, dice, "about Mantic", £5 Mantic voucher, Mantic Points):

Boards & Tokens:


Overall impression is that the set is professionally produced/good quality as you would hope/expect. Had a quick skim of the rules and most of it ...

Mantic: Kings Of War

Permanent Linkby Baragash on Tue Mar 22, 2011 10:17 pm

So Mantic had a 15% off to celebrate Ronnie's (the owner) birthday, and I took the opportunity to buy both Kings Of War armies from Mhorgoth's Revenge to ~1,000pts (Undead at 1,015 and Dwarfs at 1,005 or 1,020 depending on if I upgrade the Crossbows to Rifles, ignoring Mhorgoth for now).

"Only available for the offer duration" items I went for:
5 Undead Zombie Sprues (3 Zombies per sprue) to make the unit from the basic set into a 30 model unit
Collectors Model - Thinking Elf

Warhammer 40k: Campaign

Permanent Linkby Baragash on Thu Mar 17, 2011 12:22 pm

So in the summer, myself and Phil hope to play a system-wide campaign.

In an old White Dwarf article, it suggested that to assault a planet a player would attack using BFG's Planetary...
