This is the blog post for my long time secret, recently revealed, conversion project I had been doing. I have been working on this guy on and off for about a year and finally have the modeling pretty well done. This is the sum up what I did as well as my thoughts making this guy.
Tag: End Times
We have talked about our end times campaign we had been playing in quite a few of our previous episodes. After returning from Germany here is the over due battle report for the mega battle to end the campaign. This is largely my perspective of the battle I fought but I got some of the major things from through out the table as well. The theme of this game is a small section of the final battle for the old world where a portion of order allies assault a chaos legion lead by Archaon and try to free captured Teclis.
This post also includes a small gallery of Eric/Stonemonk’s Nagash that was used in this battle. The model looks great already but Eric still plans more on him. You should be seeing more of him as well as the rest of Eric’s undead coming soon.
Week one of our End Times campaign is set and done, and wow, what a great night! So, let’s set this up a little. It’s Wisconsin. The state’s big school, University of Wisconsin – Madison’s college basketball team is playing for national championships. Most of the state is at a bar or in front of their TV and here we were, 10 dedicated Warhammer players gather at our favorite local game store in town, . People were excited too, a lot of folks there before the normal start time and everyone there plenty early, by quarter after 6.
So, teams were made of 5 players each and after some waiting for order to select their supreme commander we went into the choosing opponents. Wanting to lock in a sure win (well maybe not so sure, but…) I choose to have our skaven player (Trevor) match up against Dwarfs (Gordon). Order picked next, and matched up Lizardmen (Kenny) vs our Ogre recruits (Eric). The remaining match ups were selected below:
- Skaven (Trevor) vs. Dwarfs (Gordon)
- Lizardmen (Kenny) vs. Ogres (Eric)
- Orcs and Goblins (Paul) vs. Empire (Nick)
- Undead Legion (Stark) vs. Warriors of Chaos (myself)
- Warriors of Chaos (Brian) vs. High Elves (Fred)
So, we talked quite a bit about the campaign we are starting on Episode 61. Here is the link to the work in progress document. At the time this was initially posted, I have the first 4 weeks designed and the final scenario.
It’s been a great way to stir up some excitement at the local store for playing Warhammer in a game that people have been playing for a long time, particularly when close to the end of an edition with as many rumors flying around as there are currently. This campaign is written not to really interfere with player’s regular games, but to turn them into large groups and having their games work towards an end goal. The board that Eric (StoneMonkGamer) put together is amazing for this campaign for the campaign map.
We start the campaign tomorrow, April 6th. Stay tuned for updates on the podcast and show.
After much delay on the editing floor, episode 58 is ready for release. In this episode we talk about how to transport your models. Whether you are hauling your army around the world on a plane or just down to your local game store. Our hosts have used a number of different products and we give our honest thoughts about all of those different products.
Also, we announce our contest winners in this episode. A big thanks to all of our fans that wrote in with comments about what we are doing on the blog. We are looking into many of the options we can do to try to help continue to improve the blog and the content we bring.
Finally, as you may note Merry Mayhem, the Warhammer Tournament, has come and gone by the time we talk about it at the end of the show. You can check out all of the pictures from the event on Google.
