  • Just when you though it was safe to have a drinking tea mug on your desk space, Mayday strikes and painting takes over. Welcome all to the madhouse, I am sure you won't regret signing up to some painting. We have a range of awesome projects already listed and of course feel free to join in at any time before period one closes at the end of June, if you can catch us up.

  • Great to see so much interest and sign ups, may the chaos continue. Idea is to put up on here details of your project, background if you like as well, plus pics/support I'll try to post some media stuff on Twitter using #TOSP2020 For the moment here is my period one model allocation. 1x Mage 20x Spearmen (Big guy is an Oni unit filler) I've flip-flopped about colour schemes this week, so form tomorrow we shall see what I end up with. For the moment, Iv'e primed Black and then lightly re-primed w…

  • Quick simple question guys. The Jabber's Breath Weapon, if it was switched out for a straight up standard Toxic Breath Weapon, would that see more Jabber use/considerations for us in your army builds? (i know more help would still be needed, just thinking mean time immediate fix) Also to add to your discussion, I have used their Bwpn vs hvy armoured targets to try and force through damage. Flew a pair up in front of knights, one out of arc shot them in my turn for the panic attempt/reduce number…

  • Hi guys, Sorry to confirm if you want to join in on this progressive tale., good to see some additional interest on this campaign. Your chosen project does not have to be a new army, it can be a new segment of an existing collection. We just want to record 2,000 points of painting along the tale, plus a giant. For us committed to the project core, we are doing a standalone legal 2,000 point army, as we hope to conclude the tale with a gaming weekend using our forces. The free giant is exactly th…

  • For my part in the tale I am signing up to do some HBE. Something out of my preferred style of rank and file with monstrous unit filler support. My usual approach to army look and feel includes lots of time spend on having the basing do the work. So this time round, hands behind the back, basing is going to be as flat as I can make it, so as to put attention onto the models. (gulp) Still haven’t finalised a colour scheme to run on this yet, in recent projects I’ve used, Blue & Blue, Red Yellow a…

  • Please allow me to welcome you to “A Tale of Slow Painters”. Firstly, we encourage your participation to join us, as we a group of 7 war-gaming painters embark on new projects to push ourselves and try out new things in a measured format where we have the “kick up the ass” needed to complete the project to time. What is “A Tale of Slow Painters”? It’s a project for to complete 2,000 points of 9thAge armies and an additional free Giant. (Thanks to the recent publication of Giants for all races) O…

  • Quote from Exalted Champion: “Quote from Davian: “with beast axe they would get there I think. ” Maybe i have another armybook, but i dont see where beast axe improves the AS? ” I think the point was that if we gave the unit entry another option of Beast Axe and Shield, instead of current choices Halberds or Grt Wpns. I would love to see a proper bodyguard style unit setup this way, Hvy/Plate armour, Shields and Beast axes, bodyguard BeastLord. I had a unit like this back in Xth edition I create…

  • Good to see the ideas flowing on improvements and possible changes. I would say that is a strong list of reactions from one game, i'd encourage you top play a few more and see if you still feel the same way. (But also note, no-one here disagreed with your comments, we would all like much of this, the drawback would be cost for it.) I would love to see us get more 'Beast' feel, although I can see the reaction if Gortach received Swiftstride. Perhaps to begin with we could see our monsters get the…

    Ironrock - - Beast Herds (BH)

    Post

    Wanted to give a top line recap of the UK Masters for you, and how the Triclops list performed. My list and rationale can be found on page 136 of this thread. R1. Spoils of War vs WoDG His list; Double Feldrak Ancestor, 4x Knight units, 2x 10 Lust Warriors, 1x 10 Warriors, Batter shrine, 8 dogs, Evo Master. Game was a wipe out of me dicing myself out of the game. I got a wounded Feldrak to charge my Spear block, hit rerolls, popper banner, and had +1 Str up. But caused no wounds, lost combat and…

    Ironrock - - Beast Herds (BH)

    Post

    I think we all know there are alternatives to 'Caal's list' out there, and some are used. (I love @Kolata's list as it is similar to my own take on beasts at the moment, and people don't know the list the way they know the 'Caal' match up.) There will always be similarities between the majority, since we have few core units to build upon, and small units of scoring ambushers are ideal for their purpose. A good core section core cannot be build up of 4x 20 Mongrel Raiders and hounds since you pen…

  • Thanks all much appreciated. @clorens, in the beginning there were two spear blocks, when the points hit came in for the BH banner and mongrel spears it forced me to look at Wildhorns as a scoring bunker. instead of Spears block 2 and some raiders. I could squeeze spears in, but I lose second chariot and the adept wizard which weakens things too much. So for now i have one unit of spears to cower behind. @Herminard, you know it

  • Ok, so starting this one off with a confession, I broke one of my golden rules, I bought an armour save improvement and an Aegis save for a character. But in my defence this is for the UK Masters event, so I will likely need it and a lot more to help me out. I thought I’d share my list on here in one piece before the event coming up in a few weeks as the only BH list from the 16 attending. The Masters in the UK: Will be 5 games, rolling randomly for the secondary each round. In game 3 we army sw…

  • Don't get me wrong I am not complaining about things, I get that it was a surprise time cut, it just impacted our game more than it should with most of the forces tactically fleeing at the time of call. But never mind, it was a cool combo having an elf death star unit getting mobility from their allies, something I am sure no one saw coming. Hopefully more details will come clear about light and dark powers, but worse case open it up completely but get players to justify it with some fluff of th…

  • Starting a run for Painting League 2020 Hobby projects a bit all over the place at the moment, but there is a rough plan for me at the moment. - We have some more BH – stay tuned for a couple of Character Chariots, Big Brother Giant and a pair of Gortachs, and then we shall see, more Minotaur, Centaur, Hounds and smaller bits to follow. - New project, when they arrive from China, these will be the fun projects adding colour and styles I haven’t done before. - A quick ‘get them to the table’ army…

  • Good luck with that James, even when Fraz is standing tall he is under the table.

  • Cool little event, loved it, but more time needed for doubles games please. (I know the 1 hour early call wasn't planned in round three but it cost us in our game about 8 points at the time dice down was called as we didn't get to rally and take the scenario/finish off points.) We plan to return this year to progress with more thought out doubles abuse, like giving the WAAAAGH to Dread Elf Dancers! Or having so many rules on an elf lord that we can get to 10 attacks as well. (Lessons were learne…

  • See what i can do, I'll try to wrangle a few of the rabble for this one.

  • Ticket monies sent, hotel booked, painting table full... the long journey begins.

  • Paid up, and list submitted, looking forward to this. Should probably have put more thought into list changes than the scribblings from my conference call today, but we shall see what I learn in Game 3 ready for the big day two climb to infinity and be... well actually anywhere except bottom would be good.
