The pestilence models are starting to look amazing. I'm looking forward to seeing them in action. And they might put up a better showing than clan Skyre.

I'm wondering if you could have done anything different in your battle. It went from bad to worse very fast. And you lacked mobility to change a lot after T1. Maybe moving back a bit to give yourself another turn of shooting could have helped. But I'm not sure if there was space for that.

Thanks guys!

A shooty army is rarely the right choice against Undead, especially when they rock 3 Zombie hordes. I put faith in the Doomwheels - slamming them into the Black Knights had decent chances of succeeding but was hardly reliable. Once I was in the grind there was no way out really - though perhaps I should have stuck with firing more warpfire into combat...

Anyway, Throt is finished:

And a lit Mordheim campaign is underway in this time of school shut-downs:

Hope you all stay healthy!

Very dynamic and I love how the natural colours get more decayed towards the centre of the piece.

The Mordheim campaign looks epic. That is definitely something I'd love to see :D

You too! Aren't you a doctor? Take extra care of yourself in that case.

Thanks! I'm working as a GP currently - luckily 95% of visits have been moved to phone/online which limits my exposure and stops all those ill people from coughing at each other in the waiting room! My wife is a doctor as well, luckily in a non-clinical field.

I did some rats the other day:

It’s the same here. I got good advice from my GP that way. We really appreciate what you guys are doing.

Glad to see you got some of that lovely green in RE!

Those rats are epic. Great use of your bits box.

My wife is a doctor as well. She's a gynecologist, and so far she's managed to avoid any corona cases. But it does bring a lot of stress and uncertainty. And a lot of flexibility. Like you, she's on the phone a lot. And each day is different from the one that came before. It's "interesting times" for sure...

Yeah, with O&G you sometime have to act too fast to really use any protection and a lot of the consults are rather hard to do by phone. Wishing you wife all the best!

Meanwhile, some more stuff. I added a few layers of paint to my older HE minis, including the unfortunately-no-longer-canonical Eltharion the Blind:

Love all the bits and bobs on the rat swarm bases, and Eltharion the Blind is a fantastic model.

It just struck me that most of your armies have fairly similar colour schemes. Any particular reason for that? Personally I think I'd want to go for something completely different, so it would be interesting to hear your thoughts.

Thanks guys :)

The white on Eltharion's cloak is lovely. How many layers did that take?

Also, your scenery keeps reminding me that I have to assemble and paint my graveyard. It's just such a versatile terrain piece. :)

@Elithmar - so true! I just love crimson and beige, I guess. :lol: I try to go for different colours for different armies - empire is primarily blue, Skaven were supposed to be green, but after a while I just switch to my favourite combinations. Call it muscle memory :wink:

The graveyard is incredible! I'm looking at getting even more scenery - every piece goes a long way to keeping the battlefield fresh, terrain doesn't cycle quite like models.

I keep adding layers of white to Eltharion every couple of years, so I guess I'm somewhere around 20 :lol:

I can understand that too. And I suppose if you ever use one of your other armies as allies, all of the models will be united by crimson and beige!

Happy Easter guys and gals!

Stay safe and play games.

I picked up some Warcry terrain and I'm having a blast:

You too :) Happy Easter.

The rock wall looks pretty nice. I've made a couple myself. And though they're not that hard to do, they're a bit boring ;) So having a great place to get some is always nice.

No idea, I don't use any rules! The terrain is very nice though:

Image

I played the third battle of the VC vs each Skaven Great Clan mini-campaign. Took Pestilence for a spin - Skrolk, Plague Furnace, 2 units of Monks, some PCBs - the whole lot. They did well - but as usual the Abomination did most of the fighting - killed Krell and his Grave Guards, a unit of Skeletons, some hounds. Then it died, then it came back to life with 6 wounds! Its efforts were undermined by Skrolk, who is worth nowhere near 470 points. Despite casting a Plague that killed:
4 Black Knights,
24 Zombies,
10 Skeletons
13 Plague Monks
20 Skaven Slaves
... and wounded Kemmler, his contribution to the game was minimal and he got routed by a Vampire and some Black knights on turn 5, nearly costing me the game. Still, it was a minor victory for the Ratmen - I'm 2:1 going into the final battle - Clan Moulder will be taking the field in the coming weeks.

Image

As a side note - my opponent has been tested negative for SARS-CoV2 the day before :wink:

That pesky Skrolk!

:)

I love the tower at the bottom. Not sure how stable the bit with all the skulls would be though. Maybe that's part of the fun!

Great to see an update here again :)

I agree with the tower at the bottom. It looks great, even with GW tendency to overdo the skulls...
