A recently completed Citadel Orc from sometime a go – not really sure on the age of this one.Opted for a more grey-green than some of the very bright greens that are often used with Orcs. The base colour is from Foundry’s poorly received World War II r…

Following on from my earlier post on Macrocosm’s upcoming Bonefields release, I’ve been beavering away on some more of the new range. First up is this fantastic goblin vampire. I don’t recall ever seeing a goblin vampire before (gobpire? Vamplin?) but …

So what has been happening here? Well, truthfully not really that much on the hobby front,  a lot of thinking about things and talk about painting but little direct action. It is all a question of time really, so when a window opened the other nig…

Warboss Grimrak

Posted on September 1st, 2017 under , , , , , , . Posted by

I recently finished my Orruk Megaboss, Grimrak. He came out surprisingly well for the amount of time I put into him. I’ve slowly been collecting Ironjawz over the last few months and painting them up. As a lazy blogger I haven’t been posting shots up b…

WIP Ironjawz

Posted on April 28th, 2017 under , , , , , . Posted by

I’ve finally made a start on my Orruk Brutes. These are interesting models. This one is at least thirteen pieces to put together but the result is great. The detail is sharp and crisp and the effect is very layered, something impossible only a few year…

Ironjawz, how did that happen?

Posted on April 10th, 2017 under , , , , , , . Posted by

It seems I’ve started a new Warhammer army… I’m not sure how that happened. It’s been nine years since I really started a new army for Warhammer. Actually I suppose the Stormcast I got count as a new one too. I’ve been eager to get some Ironjawz sinc…

Arachnarok showcase

Posted on June 5th, 2015 under , , , . Posted by

Another model that took me a lot of time.. When I came back to it recently I just wanted to finish it of. Why? The palanquin was a nightmare to paint! It was so annoying that in the end I tossed it back to the closet of shame and decide to build the ki…

Arachnarok WIP

Posted on October 19th, 2014 under , , , . Posted by

This kit has been haunting me from the shelf of shame for a couple of months now. It’s big, I think I’ve never painted anything that large and detailed in the same time.. I’m having fun with it but it is intimidating – initial airbrush work went pretty…

Nontraditional Goblin Skin Part 2: Old School Edition

Posted on March 28th, 2014 under , , , , . Posted by

Goblins have been on my mind lately.  I know that’s an odd thing to say but it is true.  I have been contemplating goblin weapons, goblin society, goblin raiding tactics, even goblin intelligence (or lack thereof).  But mostly I’ve been …

Mini-units of Squig Herds

Posted on March 11th, 2013 under , . Posted by

Anyone who’s tried using minimal sized units of Squig Herds with any success? For the same cost as a Mangler Squig, you can get 7 Squigs and 3 Herders. However, for an even cheaper cost, you can get 8 Herders and 2 Squigs.Both units will serve a simila…

The top O&G hammer units

Posted on March 4th, 2013 under , . Posted by

Following up on my previous post on What makes a good Hammer unit? I decided to list my top choices from the O&G army book. In the right player, almost anything that hits hard can function as a decent hammer unit, but I feel like the units below ar…

What makes a good Hammer?

Posted on February 25th, 2013 under , . Posted by

The Hammer and Anvil strategy is a very old, yet highly successful military strategy going back to Alexander the Great (and probably even older than that). Small wonder then that it’s a popular strategy in Warhammer as well. But while it can be extreme…

2600 pts O&G Fast, Wyvern & Boar Boyz combo

Posted on February 20th, 2013 under , . Posted by

I’ve been playing around with the idea of creating a very fast and hard-hitting army, with enough infantry backing it up to create an interesting synergy. The idea is to outdeploy my opponents and then stack one flank with a hard-hitting one-two punch …

Review: O&G Magic Items

Posted on February 18th, 2013 under , . Posted by

One of the reasonable yet frustrating points about the 8th edition army books has been the removal of all the fun and cheap magic items from previous editions. That being said, the O&G book still contains some of them, and a few can actually be use…

O&G vs Dark Elves, 2600 pts

Posted on February 13th, 2013 under , , . Posted by

So I went into town for a friendly game against a player I hadn’t faced before. My opponent had decided to field a Dark Elf army led by a Dreadlord on a Black Dragon. Because of his, he was only able to field a level 2 Sorceress of Shadow and a Master …
