nice conversion work there mate! looking forward to the paint job!
Thanks everyone! Just realized Warseer is back on.
Some more pics of Echidna and my 6mm adventures!
Echidna, fully painted up
Thessalian Light Horse!
My stronghold - The Pit of Shades, Gateway to Hades! In HOtT, the defender needs to have a stronghold, which can potentially be attacked and captured. This is one of the victory conditions for the attacker.
An uneven contest!
Run away! Run away!
And finally, a shot of my April painting effort, all placed together...
Echidna especially looks superb - great work there.
Seconded! Echidna looks great! Really nice conversion. Those Thessalians dont stand a chance!
My random painting log: HereBeDragons' Paintathon
Painting target 2012: 212 models. Number complete: 212 !!!!!!!!
Models to paint this year (2013) so far: 266 Number complete: 16
That is a fantastic conversion.
I don't understand how that Stronghold is supposed to work, though, because it has no entrance. Are those little guys supposed to climb up there and then jump into it?

Bad news about my foray into Pulp City... my buddy pulled out, so the plan there is stymied for the moment. I did buy one of the minis for my Theban force... guess which one!
Thanks! Indeed, those Thessalians are p--ssing in their pants, annoying the already startled horses!Originally Posted by HereBeDragons
Thanks EmperorNorton!Originally Posted by EmperorNorton
As for the Stronghold, yea, the little guys are to climb up there and then discover they can't really get into it because it would be leaping into the abyss and falling into Hell. However, it is also for the shades from Hades (the defenders) to emerge from (float up) and fight their attackers.
It's just my way of using a visual to get the idea of the difficulty of actually challenging an Olympian.
In terms of tabletop gameplay, you don't actually move your guys onto the mountain. It's more base to base contact that matters.
Thanks Daniel! Yea, it's all really great. I'm very happy to have discovered the 6mm world of miniatures.Originally Posted by Daniel36
Don't get me started. I have too many projects going on as it is, and I would love to be able to start a 6mm thing, and have a friend with the same interest. Alas, my best friend (wisely) only wants to work on Warhammer Fantasy, which is good for my focus, but bad for my unending list of interests.
Ah the story of our lives, Daniel...
It was probably best we were put on such different places on this planet. Had we lived closer to each other, I am sure it would be the end of the world... Or at least our wallets, marriages and social lives.
I'm sure glad I'm not 6mm tall!!
Cause I would just stand there, staring at the conversionwork and superb paint job, while Achidna slithered closer still!
@Daniel36: There's some truth in that!
@Farseer Emrys: Thanks for the compliment
I've been watching my friends play with/against the new TK. It's interesting... though I'm not sure why I'm not very inspired by the feel of the TK army on the tabletop yet... hm...
Just looked through your log and your website. Very good modes you have there. I might even be ordering some of the halfling models. ^_^

thanks -=Lazuli=- sounds great!
Don't give up just yet Juicy! Have you played with the new list yet yourself? I like watch games myself (not in a weird way) but at the same time the inspiration for myself atleast comes with the fluff and of course getting some games in. Don't hold back, get them on the table
My plog; all things fangs! And Dark Elves.
Yeah, don't give up. They probably play very differently to how they played before, but perhaps it just needs some time getting used to it.
One thing I really like is skellies get the WS of their leader. Throw in a strong Lord and make that 4 point skellies unit Horde style, 10 wide and 5 deep, and not only will you have a really cool looking unit, but also one that can potentially land 30 hits on a really high WS.
Add in the fact that apperently their archers are far superior to Wood Elves (one thing I hope they will change in the new WE book, because it is ridiculous), and you have a really cool army.
I guess they do play less tricksy now... But that isn't necessarily a bad thing. Try it out a couple of times.
Alright guys, you've convinced me. I think I will field them in about say 3 games myself before deciding to go ahead with them or drop them
10 wide, 5 deep.. 50 skeletons (at 6 points each? can't remember offhand) = 300 points, with command. That's a huge unit...
Actually I've been thinking about maxing the number of tomb princes, field maybe either 1 king/1 lord level priest or 2 lord level priests. This is to get the most out of characters in units.
So say in 2500 pts games that I normally play, that would mean 500 points worth of tomb princes (that would get me between 3 to 4 of them depending on how I kit them out). If I get a tomb king, I get one more fighty guy. Then 1 lord level heirophant... what do you guys think?
Actually, young padawan, they are 4 points. So that's only what? 200-something points? And that for a potential of 30 hits, at a high WS. I say YES!
Even easier in the 2500 points battles.
I'd say go for it! Horde units look so awesome!
