I picked up Warcry: Monsters and Mercenaries last weekend. It's a great little book for £15 packed with new Campaign Quest rules, and rules for adding characters and Chaotic Beasts and Gargantuan Creatures to your game. As soon as I saw the Slaughterpriest in the book I dived into my stack of grey sprues and pulled out the White Dwarf free model from a few years ago. More after the jump. More after the jump
Here's the rest of my first warband for Warcry..I'll post my Nighthaunt Warband in a few days..
Hello! As the first entry in the new week I would like to show you the warband for Warcry skirmish system. Below you can see a full gallery of individual units. Miniatures painted by artists from our Studio. Warcry is the latest release from Games Workshop and all signs indicate that the game has already had a success. Local shops got rid of their stocks of starter sets very quickly, and the wave of new bands flooding us shows that the system will be supported. In addition to the new factions, the game also features card sets with statistics for the “old” units. The game supports fast, brutal battles lasting about 1 hour, which perfectly fits the current skirmish trend. Additionally, the option of developing units and creating a campaign is strongly marked. Soon we will be able to present you with new branches and areas…. Meanwhile – goodbye! Commission painting services – email@example.com and Messenger
WARCRY scenery base set, by far the Best set ever released for Medieval/Skirmish games in the history of Medieval/Skirmish games. I can't wait to get another set to bash. Soon available for order through the shop
Hi all! I finished this Heart-eater of the Untamed Beasts, a good practice for painting skin. I also made use of the new Skeleton Horde Contrast paint on the bone parts which was quick and easy, even though I had to rework the bone a little bit by adding some layers and highlights.Who else is on the Warcry bandwagon?

With Warcry filling in the fantasy counter-part of Kill Team, Games Workshop supplies the game with their variant of the Killzones called Ravaged Lands. We have covered a couple of those Killzones already on the blog, for example Killzone: Sector Mechanicus and Killzone: Sector Fronteris. And today we cover the first of the Ravaged Lands, […]
I know it's been a long time since I've posted. I've not been idle. In fact, I've painted more in the last few months than the rest of the year. I just haven't taken the time to take photographs or sit down to write about my projects.Warcry is the new(ish) skirmish game from Games Workshop. The mechanics of the game are easy and fast. Possibly too simple if you are a fan of granular sets like Mordheim and Necromunda, but I've been enjoying narrative games more than crunchy ones these days. Despite the rules lite nature of the mechanics, there is still a good level of tactical choices during a battle. I'm not going to go into full review mode (there are plenty of those on the web), but I do like the game.More than that, I LOVE the new models. My first warband is the Unmade..These are just a few of the lads. I'm working on the terrain now and I'll post some more photos (no, really) when I can set up a proper table.One of the things I didn't like about the game was that the cards for the models only include
It's one of those rare special moments on the blog today, I've finished painting a boxed game! That's right, the Warcry set Game Workshop sent to me early is finished, photographed and ready for your viewing pleasure. More after the jump
The nice thing about building up a warband is that you have the opportunity to try something new every now and then. With the fourth member of the Redfists I implemented something that I always wanted to try out: I painted Vorlug in a half-sided pattern. Depending on which side you look at the model […]
Quick post today to share my completed Furies. Link to the tutorial after the jump.More after the jump
Monsters and Mercenaries is adding a huge array of heroes to fight for your Warbands in Warcry! Today I’m joined by Mike from Epic Duck Studios for a game with his Untamed Beasts joined by a Darkoath War Queen facing off against my Iron Golems with a Lord of Plagues! Check out the review of the new book HERE: https://youtu.be/i80cTzEmM6c
It’s time for another GMG Review! Today I take a look at Monsters and Mercenaries, the first supplement for Games Workshop’s WARCRY. This 64 page book adds 3 new Thrall Beasts for Chaos Warbands, 4 new open Quests for any of the factions, 8 Raid-style missions to fight Monsters and Boss level units, including one of the new Warbands yet to be released (the Everchosen). Add to that dozens of Hero-Level Mercenaries and there’s plenty for WARCRY fans to sink their teeth into.
As they stalked their prey through the midnight mists, the Plains Runners felt the weight of responsibility on their shoulders. They had to prove themselves to the Heart Eater by returning with a clutch of Raptoryx eggs for their Beast Talker to hand-rear. Drak muttered his annoyance about being up so high, Ancrax who led the group, shushed him to be quiet. They were close to the nest now. He could smell their prey's scent on the wind. Hunkering down they slowly crept across a make-shift wooden bridge, their combined weight forcing the beams to creak under the strain. All of a sudden they heard a high pitch squawk. Bringing up the rear; Sophak quickly spun round and saw movement in the fog, her sudden reaction rocking the bridge. In a split second the Raptoryx was upon them. Drak watched Ancrax fall from the bridge and disappear in the gloom. He could hear Sophak screaming as she was dragged away alive in the claws of the murderous beasts. Drax, swinging his bone clubs hoping to connect with something in
Dull drumbeats roar across Jagged Savannah of Ghur, calling the barbarian nomads to arms. Wild warcries mingle with the animalistic roar of the great beasts and are barely distinguishable. It's time to go and prove to Archaon the Everchosen as relentless enough to join his legions. I've got into WarCry, too. I have been skeptical […]
Chase is back for more WARCRY! This time his Ironjawz take on my Nighthaunts in their first outing to the 8 Points.
