View Full Version : Mammoths and Dragons and Giants Oh My!

Finally! After years of waiting, we get something akin to Apocalypse for Fantasy, and I for one am all over it!

I'll be making infernal pacts left, right and centre. My Bull Rhinox Cavalry shall have Dragon Ogre outriders. My Tyrant might just find himself with a shiny new Mammoth to unleash on the enemy, and no doubt be eaten as part of the victory celebrations.

Images of my Giant booting poncey Elven Generals through their own unit makes my brain smile. Massive great Emperor Dragons will be trained to sit on enemy units!

But where to begin my friends? I have plenty armies, enough for a good 10,000 points I reckon. My menagerie is already fairly impressive, including as it does a Wyvern, Chimera, two Dragons, no less than 3 Manticores, 4 Hydras (yeah, I play Dark Elves too) 3 Rhinox Cavalry, and quite possibly further gribbly nasties I've curretly forgotten about.

Ultimately, whatcha gonna buy from Warhammer Forge? Personally I've got around a £500 spending limit, and I find myself spolit for choice!

I'd probably go for the mammoth... if I had an army it'd actually fit into (although some heavily converted skeletal elephant might work as a counts-as for my tomb kings...)

Which army do you play the most/which army do you intend to play for the storm? Just take what would fit into the theme of that army.

Well my Empire Army has a spare griffon, I own 3 shaggoths and 8 dragon ogres for my warriors and I see units of summoned Dryads being fluffy if I use lore of life.

For once in my life, I'm saying 'bugger the theme, I want monsters!'

Current in my Cart with Warhammer Forge....Big Dragon, Bonegrinder Giant, and the Mammoth. Not entirely sure about the Mammoth, as not using the Howdah seems a waste, especially when I'm paying that sort of price. Hmmmm....

Anyone know where I can get a suitably large alternative Mammoth? Considered a Mumak, it's just too diddy.

Gone for the Giant, and the Dragon. Carmine Dragon is already on it's way. What can I say, I'm Dragon CRAZY!
