    Time for another update, on the small side but an update never the less.

    Thank you.
    I'm pretty sure I will take a couple of pictures, since it's such a rare occasion. And since I have a phone with a decent camera, it's even more likely.

    Thanks.
    I'm really crap at painting grime and dirt. And this is probably going to be a really big challenge in the future, since I'm probably going to migrate over to Bolt Action now, at least when it comes to new purchases.


    I'm still feeding of the energy of the fact that I have a gaming weekend coming up.

    So I finished my pestigors, or at least almost, still need a bit of static grass, but that is still not unpacked since my last move (that I made in February, so I really don't have any excuse ).





    And the whole unit.





    And I managed to make the banners for my plauebearers as well, a bit crude but it will do for now.



    And to finish off this post, one of my all-time favourite miniatures. It really captures the essence of Nurgle, or at least that's how I see it.
    And as usual, macro pictures is a ruthless way of showing of what you missed, so there is a couple of things I will touch-up.

    Nice ones. As to Bolt Action, where do you live? We have a Facebook group called Bolt Action Stockholm if that's interesting and close enough to you.

    Thanks for the offer, but I'm located on the west-coast so it's a bit far away to be practical.

    Re: Zogoth's painting efforts (mainly different kinds of Chaos minis)

    Played my first game in 2 years this weekend.

    It was kind of a strange experience. We also played a couple of games of Bolt Action during the weekend, and there is a distinct difference in game-flow between the 2 games. Still enjoyable though. And in the end we probably played a kind of 5th-8,5th ed version of the game most likely.

    The game itself was 1500 pts, me playing a chaos force, chosen from the End of times list, or kind of from that list and with some additions from the Thamurkan book as well.
    My really cunning plan I had when I made my army-list was to use models that I have painted but never used before. This made a really focused and efficient list....

    Luckily my opponent got a bit inspired from playing BA, and just went with a mantra of troops, troops, troops... His whole army was more or less troops, and two hero-lvl characters, no magic, not even magic items.



    In the end, several of my choices was utterly stupid, such as a chaos sorcerer and no “human” chaos unit to put him in. That got him dive bombed by some lizard stukas... And a lord on a manticore when your opponent has skinks with poisonous blowpipes...but my lord go a chance to work on his running skills at least.
    And he still more or less saved his and my honour in the end. In my 5th turn he charged a unit of saurus spears in the flank, and started chipping away. In the following phase, the lizard 6th he in turn got charged by a stegadon, but the combo of chaos armour and shield and talisman of protection, together with some excellent dice-rolls, such as saving all the 5 thunder-stomps ended up in his steg losing his nerve and he ran away, since the lord killed a few saurus each turn, and enough to win the combats. And he then followed it up with breaking the sauruses in the next phase, and what on my turn 5 looked like a massacre in the favour of the lizards actually ended up in a 125 ish point difference in the end. Still a loss, but much closer than I thought was possible.

    My battle line at the start of the game.
    The gor unit backed up by the mark of Nurgle and Ld of a chaoslord was another surprise for both me and my opponent, proving to be an fantastic speed bump.

    Re: Zogoth's painting efforts (mainly different kinds of Chaos minis)

    It's been a very long time since I have done anything related to warhammer, I more or less gave up on it with the destruction of the old world as I knew it.
    But this summer me and a good friend buckled up and did something we have been talking about for ages, and that was to try to get our old group from our university days back together. And for about a month ago we actually got together and played a small “tournament” of 6th ed. Warhammer fantasy battle again, with old gaming friends, some of which I had not seen in the flesh for some 15 years.
    We ended up on 10 people in the end and we had a blast, and immediately decided to try to get this done again next year, also be “demand” from about as many others who couldn't make it this time.

    We had the possibility to lend/rent a gaming clubs facility over the weekend, thanks to the fact that one of us are part of that club, so we had access to all kinds of tables and terrain.




    And this have given me some inspiration, so my goal for next time (hopefully sooner than another 15 years ) is to field my (ravening hordes) chaos dwarfs. So I need ti finish at least 1500 pts of chaos dwarfs and their slave orcs.
    And going though my bits box I found enough to build 10 black orcs, and I've built most of them by now and even started to get some paint on to a couple.
    This pic is pretty washed out, the red is much more red in RL, and the highlights a orangy kind of red not pink, but that is what you get when you live in an basement apartment in the winter in Norway

    Re: Zogoth's painting efforts (mainly different kinds of Chaos minis)

    I have made a bit of progress during the holidays, or at least I've finished a couple of minis.

    This is my chaos dwarf black orc slaves as they look today, all four of them.


    And I guess this one will end up as the unit champion. This pose and head is probably one of my all time favourites of all GW minis. It was actually one of the two main reasons I got the black orc kit way back. I wanted their standard for a unit of chaoswarriors and I wanted to build and paint this model. That it then took more than 10 years to get around to dig them out of my bits box and do just that....
    But now it's done.

    Re: Zogoth's painting efforts (mainly different kinds of Chaos minis)

    Now have I more or less finished with these boys, its only the basing left and that is something
    I tend to put off as long as possible.
    I keep telling me that I should wait until I painted another unit or two so I can get a whole batch done at one time.
    The only drawback with that tactic is that with this pace these will get based in 2022 most likely.

    Thank you.

    I don't really know, just never enjoyed doing it I guess.
    It's a bit strange really, because I really like how it “finishes off” the look of the models and adds that last “pop” to them.

    Re: Zogoth's painting efforts (mainly different kinds of Chaos minis)

    This last weekend was spent playing a lot of games, Bolt Action, Konflikt 47, Test of Honour and last but not least WHFB 6th ed.

    I was fielding my Nurgle devoted horde of chaos force, mainly consisting of a unit of chosen warriors, marauders and plaugebearers and a chariot and some characters to get 1500 pts.
    My opposition was 1500 pts of lizardmen, mainly skinks.

    And it ended up being the least enjoyable game I have ever played. I dont think I ever even contemplating just quit a game before but this time I really felt like doing just that, and I have been playing since the early 90s. Not on the account of my opponent, he is a really good friend and a great opponent but this was such a horrible miss-match that it was just plain painful. So in the end march-blocked, avoided and shoot to pieces for 6 turns, so I managed to keep the urge to just give up under control. Even managed to keep a straight face according to my opponent.

    My battleline










    But there was some decent warhammer related things happening during the weekend as well, as finding an old box of goblin wolfriders and an wolfrider hero blister at my friends local gamestore so now I'm turning a bit of attention back towards my Ravening hordes Chaos dwarfs for 6th ed.

    It's been quite a long time since I updated this plog. But to be honest I haven't really managed to get that much painted either so I guess it only natural.
    But never the less, lately I have had both some time and a little bit of motivation, so I have almost finished a unit of hobgoblin wolfriders for my 6th ed. chaos dwarfs.
    And who knows, one of these days I might learn how to take decent pictures as well.

    Re: Zogoth's painting efforts (mainly different kinds of Chaos minis)

    Now it starts to get closer to our yearly 6th ed. Warhammer fantasy weekend, and I need to get my crap together and finish up my army for this years games. I have chosen chaos dwarfs this time and I need to have 1500 points done by the start of november . And as it stands I'm actually quite confident that I will be able to make it, since quite a lot of it is done.


    I still have a small (12) man unit of dwarf warriors to paint, my sorcerer and battlestandard left to paint. And the warriors will not take a lot of time since the models mainly consists of beard and armour, which I can do pretty quickly (famous last words).
    Other than that some banners, movement trays and the dreaded basing

    So the work on my chaos dwarfs continues, and there have been some progress.

    Quote Originally Posted by Naitsabes View Post

    I am working on it, and slowly getting there, only one unit still unbased in this force at the moment.

    I have finished my 2nd unit of dwarfs, or I have sort of finished it. There is still a lot of shield to be done, but I think I'm gong to skip the rest since they are impossible to rank up as is, and shields would make them totally impossible... So I guess I will settle for the front rank and the ones on the outside of the unit.
    There is also need of a banner.







    I have also more or less finished my characters, even though there still is a few details left on both the battlestandardbearer and on the sorcerer. I have skipped painting eyes, bit I might go back and do this on at least the characters later on when all other things are done.







    I have added a ridiculously large bannertop to the battlestandard to make him stand out a bit more, and to bring him a little bit more in line with the more “modern” look.
    There is still a bit of work left on the horns but other than that, done.

    Thank you, sadly it's not my table , but it belongs to a very good friend and I will let him know.
    Yeah, those 12 was done a couple of weeks ago by now, but its always those small last details that really takes a bit of time.

    Thank you very much.

    So by now, the small tournament that me and a friend (the owner of the gaming table mentioned above) arranges for our old gaming-group that we all belonged to 20-15 years ago in our university days is just a couple of weeks away.

    And since I decided already last year that I would field my chaos dwarfs this year I had some painting to do, even though I had a few painted (about 30-40%) I'm not the best when it comes down to these kind of deadlines, I have a severe case of new shiny model syndrome.

    Never the less, now I more or less consider this 1500 points 5th edition chaos dwarf army more or less done, just a single momenttray left to do. And some spellcards, but these are not really necessary, just that they are really handy, and takes away a lot of flicking in the big red book. Possibly a couple of pendants for the sorcerer as well, but I'm still a bit undecided about this.

    So lets start of with the main core units, the chaos dwarfs themselves.
    I have 2 smallish units of regular chaos dwarf warriors, on 16 strong and one 12 strong. I pretty much know that I probably would have more success if I clump them together to one unit, but...I don't really like that, or I don't like to play it like that rather, I'm not a big “deathstar” fan.
    And here they are



    Unit “A”
    All metal minis


    Unit “B”
    Made of the only plastic set of chaos dwarfs that was produced


    And then on the two other units, possibly the mot iconic chaos dwarfs, the blunderbuses (only the bullcentaurs might challenge them in this). Had a testgame a week ago and the amount of damage these can do at bigger units was truly impressive, but also totally rubbish at small units since they work more or less like a template and hits “affected” models in 4+.

    Re: Zogoth's painting efforts (mainly different kinds of Chaos minis)

    And now on to the rest of the army.

    I would almost go far enough to claim that the black orcs are a natural choice in any chaos dwarf army, since they was created/breed by the chaos dwarfs to make better and stronger slaves. Worked out so and so from the dwarfs perspective....

    I have a unit of 12, (10 really, but I have put an ogre in there as well, counting him as two orcs), just armed with choppas, so they are nothing special really, but people tend to fear them and put a lot of effort into destroying them, which must be the best kind of use a chaos dwarf can get from some unruly slaves, right?



    And on the subject of greenskins, my unit of hobgoblins. Just plain simple hobgoblins on wolves armed with spears, pretty rubbish, but the only thing in the army with any kind of speed, and sometimes useful to send speeding around on a flank.



    And since this are a chaos dwarf army, there must be some artillery right?
    Well but of course, I have no less than three warmachines, so there are quite a few rolls on the misfirecharts .



    First out are my pair of deathrockets.





    And the star of the show, the infamous earthshaker cannon, complete with loader ogre (I made him so that I can use this model as a dreadquake mortar in 8th ed.). This one can really cripple the advance of an infantrybased army, making them just as slow as my own force .



    And there we have them, the units of my army. Top it off with these three (gentle)men and we have 1500 points.
    One hero, acting as general, one hero with the armys battlestandard and a level 2 sorcerer.



    So from now on I will say that I have made it in good time, now on to some other odd bits that needs to be done just to get the “tournament” to run smoothly, but that's more icing on the cake.
