Mike Gattone brought the Children of the Dragon with Thagrosh the Messiah of Everblight up against my modified for a Dhunian Archon Kolgrima Storm of the North list. He won the roll to go first, so I set up on the side behind the forest to get some relief from all the flying eyeless sight BS and sprays.I almost think he should have gone second and taken the side away from me.https://conflictchamber.com/?c7201b_-0Gj1joiUjqoP6GfJ0li-iZiZezez2NiTbKTrollbloods Army - 73 / 75 points[Theme] Storm of the North!!!

I swear someday there will be a rhyme and reason to the stuff I decide to work on and not.
In the Warmachine/Hordes painting group, facebook user Donniw Smith posted the above Archangel wip. I saw that and immediately thought that that could bbe a fantastic color scheme for Infernal horrors. He shared his paint scheme in that same thread:Chiton - base coat p3 bloodstone , Agrax earthshade wash (citadel) , doombull brown glaze (citadel) , edge up the chiton with rucksack tan (p3) final edge with menoth white (p3)Skin - base of coal black (p3) wash with nuln oil (citadel) 4 parts coal black 2 parts frostbite (p3) , next shade 1 part coal black 2 parts frostbite , super highlights pure frostbite, finally beaten purple super thinned down for the skin stress points Wings - base sanguine (p3) wash nuln oil, next sanguine highlight , final two parts sanguine highlight two parts Pink (Vallejo for me could use p3) Mouth - red violet (Vallejo) pink highlight (Vallejo)- wurm green (p3) - necrite green (p3), livery green (Vallejo) 2 parts livery green 2 part’s Cygnus yellow (p3) highlightO
Francesc came by to try out some Champions, and his test list was an assassination list with Lylyth1 with the Children of the Dragon (a bunch of character warbeasts with ranged attacks to multiply the effort of her feat Field of Slaughter) and I tried out Grim Angus (since I already locked in Storm of the North with Kolgrima).I don't really give much thought to my deployment, but quickly realize that I'm in a bind. I'm a bit too comfortable with the Madrak1 loadout with Band of Heroes. I'm playing Grim Angus and can't move my dudes through my other dudes. It's a travesty and I waste a lot of time unpacking.Lylyth doesn't waste time. She goes to maximum range to target the Champions with a Witch Mark. Drops Parasite. Her army on feat kill as many of the bonded fighters as possible. A few Fennblades die.Zuriel on the other side of the church sees an opening and charges and kills a Fennblade. A shepherd has to run way out to support Zuriel, but there's no extra damage to be found and the Bomber is either too far
826 Points126 ModelsWhy do I need so many dragonblighted models that I haven't played with since the release of Rhyas and Mk1?You can see some of the reasons I picked up models in this line. I liked three of the huge bases enough to buy them, plenty of the Ogrun infantry, and models like Thagrosh1 and Thagrosh2. The Throne of Everblight never really impressed me, but then someone offered me a used one on the cheap, so I picked that up.What's missing from my collection are some of the best models in the line: the resculpt of Proteus, Azrael, Kallus2, Hellmouths. I think I want to remedy that gap in the next year.Models that I don't have but can see buying should they resculpt them or if I can find them cheap: Typhon. I never could stand its skinny necks.So this, along with my Grymkin, might be top of the list for 2019.
