Brute Force

Look at what my family got me for Christmas!

Translation: look at what I bought for myself once I'd returned all my presents

These very welcome and short-lived Battleforce bundles from Games Workshop are jaw-droppingly good value. If they repeated this exercise, I'd be in serious danger of buying one each year.

Let's get started: Big Wunz Iz Da Best!

Any Old Iron: Ironjawz vs Disciples of Tzeentch

Bulla, Megaboss of Da Flat Iron Clan and warlord of Da Wasted Plains, gave a hard stare to the stone icon, then headbutted it. He didn't like the way that vulture head was looking at him, so he smashed his forehead into it for a second time. The stone was starting to crumble. Good, he thought. Gork damn him if he was going to take any cheek from a statue.

"Dey are coming for it," said his Warchanter, Groll, tapping out his two stikks while he spoke. They had not reached the ear-bursting beat of battle, but the gods-infused stikks were knocking out an impatient tempo. Every heartbeat brought them closer to slaughter.

"Da humies?" Bulla asked. His outriders had seen a large mob of chaos-worshippers drawing close, dragging a large casket of loot behind them.

Groll nodded at the cracked icon. "Dey want dis one, and the one on the uvver side of town."

Bulla thumped his meaty fist against his breastplate. A shower of rust flaked away, but there were still many inches of pig-iron covering several more inches of thick Orruk muscle. "Get da ladz. We'll pull 'em into our jawz, den crush 'em."

The Warchanter gave both Gorkskikk and Morkstikk a determined bash, igniting the green Waaagh! power within. "It's gonna be an 'ard day's night."

Age of Sigmar battle report: 'Take And Hold' between Orruk Ironjawz and Disciples of Tzeentch.

Melt down the ferrite!
It's All-Skype Fight Night!

The Ark of Alternatives campaign continues apace (that pace being once a month). This time, I Stylus, will be bringing a new faction to play, hastily painted up during the bank holiday: the Ironjawz!

Final Level

Well, that didn't take long.

Something like 16 months from delivery to shelf. These guys were still alive when it arrived, and now look at them.

Warlord of Galahir: Bouncers Back

We got puréed in our last encounter with The Bouncers, but if first you don't succeed ... blame the questbook and generate some more effective dungeoneers!

Behold, two new-and-improved heroes, ready to re-try the mission!

Gorechosen: Anger Management

It's been a few months since I rushed through sufficient basecoats to play Gorechosen with my family at Christmas (and got my anvil handed to me), but I've finally finished off the Red Hand Gang.

Imagine this walk in slow-motion and it would be AWESOME.

Let's meet the Fab Four!

So before you head on past the page break, see if you can guess what I've been painting this week. Go on, pick something. I feel confident I can surprise you.

One Man And His Bird-Dog

So after a year of painting the miniatures (okay, painting half the miniatures, don't look at me like that, leadpile), I finally got in my first game of Warhammer Quest: Silver Tower.

Gryph-Hound from Warhammer Quest: Silver Tower.

I had a blast, and was immediately inspired to pluck one of the heroes from the unpainted stack

(don't worry, it's not just the Gryph-Hound)
