Ogre Queen

I painted up a bunch of these Wargames Foundry Great Orcs (or Ogres - whatever they want to call them) a while back for Gods of Battle, but they've never seen the table, which is a shame as I'm really proud of them.

She'll end up leading a group of mercenary ogres for my God of Battles mercenary army, though I expect she might see some action in Strange Grogge games or Age of Sigmar if I feel the need.

Halfling Hotpot Catapult

I've had this piece painted for a while, but its yet to see the tabletop. It was painted for use as a light war engine for God of Battles in a mercenary army.

I've got a nice little collection of halflings building up which I intend to share some of soon.

I'm a huge fan of some of the wackier creations Games Workshop put out in the past. The pump wagon previously posted is another great example.

I'm glad others seem keen on this opinion as well, I was sorely tempted to get in on The Assault Group's "chickstarter" to get some halflings on giant roosters but decided not to in the end, I'm sure I'll end up getting some when they are released.

Goblin Sharpstick Thrower

After getting a pasting at Gods of Battles at the club last Thursday I decided to order a Goblin Bolt Thrower to bolster my Orc Warlord ranks.

Its a Goblin Sharpstick thrower from Mantic Games. Its got two more crew which I haven't finished yet. I replaced the shield on the front of the machine with a Orc standard top from my bits box and added a Crooked Claw mushroom to the base.

I picked it up from eBay for £15 inc. postage, which I think is reasonable, its a really nice kit (though it took a bit of cleaning up), I'm tempted to get another - I suppose it'll come down to how well it gets on at its next outing at the club!

God of Battles at the ELMS club

I managed to get another game of God of Battles in at the ELMS club in Leeds last night.

The opening moves

Orcling outriders and chariot on a flanking move 
We played a 36point game with my Orc Warlords against Rob's Dwarves in a scenario which lead to my orcs trying to poison a patch of ancient woodland while the dwarves tried to protect it, with the possibility of a treeman type coming to their aid.

Just before the drake ate all my orcs!
Rob''s lovely dwarves
My orcs got soundly beaten, though did manage to poison one patch of woodland meaning it wasn't a total whitewash (so I keep telling myself). We had a cracking time though and got finished in plenty of time (Rob's drake helping with that!).

Wolf Riders
I can't recommend God of Battles enough, every game we've played has been fun and there's plenty of depth to it despite it running along a good pace. I've another game scheduled for next week, I haven't decided if I'll run the orcs yet or maybe the mercenaries, we'll see...

Ironskins getting eaten by a drake

Thats how to use chariots! If only I could roll dice!

The treeman appears!

I had a handful of ogres left over from a previous army so I thought I might stick one together as a test piece for the barbarians.

I'm pretty pleased with how he's turned out - I'll probably end up painting another two or three so its more a game-able unit.

Goblin Archers

I picked up a bag of the old 4th edition warhammer goblins cheaply on ebay to paint up as some cannon fodder for fantasy games.

I think they've come out quite nicely for a quick job - the only thing that got any time was the skin.
