Huntsmen regiment finished!

I'll probably wait until Q-minis do a Zodak figure to convert the Wundarr version with the black armour.
Talabheim, because I'm an unimaginative scrub who just paints figures like they look on the box. Or because I liked the colours. I did, however, reverse the places of the colours on the red and white quartering the GW showcase state troops.
Warhammer 40k Discussion / Re: Joined The Guard

Had a 200 power game yesterday, but due to too much casual chatting and drinking we only got 1 and a half turns down in six hours. It got messy when my opponent dropped down multiple terminator units right in front of my battleline and roasted a significant number of brave guardsmen.

I had an Imperial Soup army to try out. Just over 100 power of guard, 50 power of deathwatch and 25ish power of space marines. We spent a fair bit of time talking about the FAQ rules but ultimately decided not to use them. It was my opponents first real game of 8th and he doesn't really like it. Mostly because he doesn't like having to learn a whole new edition, but he also thinks the lack of charts make it to easy.

It didn't help matter whens I dropped multiple squads of scions, a deathwatch dread and kill team, and a handful of reivers behind his battleline after he was nice enough to surge everything forward. I only got one full turn the whole game but I managed to eviscerate several tanks, heavy weapon squads, assassinate a few characters and just generally cause havoc.

We called it and said I won when I managed to kill his lord with Captain Artemis of the deathwatch in turn 2, but it would have gotten ugly has we continued. I had scrapped ahead on victory points with some tactical objectives, first blood and slaying the warlord, but if we'd continued he was about to overrun my left flank and center, take multiple objectives and turn around to pound my deep striking mini army.

I myself really enjoy 8th. I like the detachment system and the command points, but I need to spend more time memorizing stratagems. It eats up to much time trying to shuffle through them and see if anything would help at a given time.
Skirmish & Warband / Re: Ghost Archipelago - Frostgrave II

They are pretty nice looking models that's for sure.

I'm trying to drum up local support for a ghost archipelago campaign but I think there's to much momentum for frostgrave itself still. not that I'm complaining, but who doesn't love some pirates?

I like seeing an army with a different real world inspiration like that. It looks pretty good thematically. Are you going to try and keep some kind of mining/digging influence with them as dwarves?

Perhaps as well as their sea influence they have access to certain luxury goods that make kicking off a full war unappealing.
Age of Sigmar / Re: Rumours and what's new to be expected of WAoS

We all know that the proper number of armies to have is however many you already have +1.

The new stormcast look pretty good. I saw a picture of them converted with normal looking human heads that looked pretty good. Like paladins or something.
I'm the same as Zygmund. I've seen it, and I've been keeping an eye on it, but havn't tried it. I like the look of what I've seen so far.
The Count's Tavern / Re: 13 Rumored New Fantasy series ????

It's pretty much a list of my favorite books. Especially Good Omens.

I look forward to seeing them done, but I'm a little cynical at this point. I loved the book American Gods by Neil Gaimon, I did not like the TV series they just did. It was just so totally different in so many ways.
