Re: Althi painting log

When you can take a mediocre model (the foot Sorceress IMHO) and make it look splendid, that's a great sign.

Re: Warhammer Armies Project: a search for experience.

A small battle against Skaven. It was the first in a small campaign: the Skaven had to storm a building. 500 points, My White Lions were easily destroyed defending the outer wall, but my Warriors held the building. Job done! We called it a tie, but because of a mistake we mide I think I would have ...

Re: A new painting blog - NEW OK Army project started

So a few questions and observations: 1) I love the kitbashed standard on the Thundertusk. It makes an already dominating model even taller! 2) Does the Rhinox count as a Mournfang and join that unit? 3) The Monsters are generally regarded as a friendly choice. Double Ironblaster less so, it's a nice...

his army lists are totally different from mine. I believe you've yet to post a draft Ogre list MoN? Although he was playing in tournaments Rusty was a very strong player who also fielded Daemons and Wood Elves. I like an army with showy miniatures I looked a year or two ago and most of these miniat...

Re: A new painting blog - NEW OK Army project started

Bravo MoN, I love armies of big guys! Somewhere on the site there's a beautiful army of Wolfen. This looks fascinating and good to see the Monsters which often get omitted from harshly competitve lists. Is the unit of four on the right Maneaters? I especially like the Rhinox.

strictly Tzeentch Interesting. Horrors-only is probably the strongest way to go with Core, even just adding a couple of Heralds on Metal yields an excellent magic phase.
