Hey Everyone!

So the tournament is now complete!  Fun was had by all and although I didn't win anything (shocking), it was still a blast.  Even if it was the first time I technically have ever played Age of Sigmar.  I didn't have a chance to take as many pics as I would have liked...because I mostly forgot.  So let's take a look at the highlights!

The Ogors of the Averholme!

Hey wait a minute...I remember this gaming table...

OMG!  The very first tournament I went to had this...but the group that manages the old tournaments in the city doesn't exist anymore.  Man I wish I knew who some of these gaming tables belonged too.  Every time a gaming store or club shuts down a new one pops up to grab them.  Hooray for recycling I guess,

Here's proof:

This picture was taken 10 years ago (almost) at Arena Montreal 2008.  Behold my Empire army in all it's old Green base glory!

Anyway, back to Chaosludik

Here we have my first game EVER of AoS against Ironjaws.  He had two 10 man units of 'Ardboys, one 10 man unit and one 5 man unit of Brutes, 3 Gore grunta, a Megaboss, Warchanter and Shaman.

The objective was pretty simple, there are 3 possible ways to score in the game.  Hold one (or both) of the Red objectives, hold the Blue objective in the center with a character, or wipe out a unit in a turn.  You had to select two of the three you'd try for at the beginning of the turn and hope to get them.

Well long story short I didn't really play the objective as hard as I should of.  I got whooped pretty bad in the end.  That doesn't mean I didn't wreck some face!  My Ironguts wiped out the 10 man unit of Brutes in one turn (my god do they hit hard), as well as the Gore Gruntas.  Sadly I just didn't have the numbers to hold off the Ironjaws who whittled me down through attrition.

So first game lost in a Massacre!  Good way to start.

Second game was another matchup against Destruction.  He had two 10 man units of Savage Orruks, a 10 man unit of Brutes (again!  Ugg), a Warchanter, A Night Goblin Shaman as well as a Frostlord on a Stonehorn (Gulp!) and a Thundertusk.

Scenario is straight forward, basically Gifts from heaven scenario from the Generals Handbook.  The Objectives each fell across from each other.

Well Frostlords are freaking DEADLY!  It killed my general and 5 of 6 Ogors...but then my Ironguts went to work and killed the bastard while my Ironblaster took out his Thundertusk...the rest of my army did not fair so well.

I actually managed to play the objective this time and my opponent was technically only one point ahead.  However, due to the way things were scored I still got beaten pretty badly...but I mauled him as good as he mauled me so I didn't feel too bad.  Massacre victory for my opponent...on to game 3!

Last match I sadly did not get many pictures of.  But this match I actually got the hang of my army and went for the kill.  The objective was in the center of the board and I basically held it the whole time and wiped his army out to a man (My god Ironguts!)

Victory to the Ogors of the Averholme.  I didn't rank anywhere useful but it was still a fun tournament.

Welp!  It was a long slog for this porject but is now officially over.  I decided to take a slight break from painting so I can get more games in and work on a few more Battle Reports!  I can't wait!  Until then, see ya!

Road to ChaosLudik: Flinging Flanging Done!

Hey everyone!

I'm freaking done!  1500 points of my Gutbuster Wartribe...but first, lets take a look the last 3 minis I managed to get painted up:

Tada! The last 3 minis are done.  The last Gorger, a Butcher and my Tyrant...lets take a closer look:

I have to do a quick touchup on them.  Honestly, I painted these guys really fast so they aren't as good as I would have liked but they are finished (Finally!)

Here they are in all their glory (also a mini display board)

I'm ready to get to the tournament and kick some ass (I probably won't kick ass). 

Wish me luck all!

Road to ChaosLudik: Oh God! Still so much to paint...

Hey everybody!

Wow...okay, I don't have a lot of time left and I still have a few big minis I have to finish painting. Due to scheduling I basically lost this whole week and haven't really been able to paint beyond basic base-coating. I did finish SOME stuff and am preparing the last minis I need to get done.

So here we go!

One Gorger and the Ironblaster!  Honestly?  Not my best work I'll admit,  the Ironblaster was kind of rushed but still good enough for the tournament.  If I have time I will touch these up.

I'm on to the home stretch, the last three minis I need have arrived. I stripped the paint off, re-pinned and green stuffed all the gaps.  I got them basecoated in black and am ready to get a move on and finish them up.

Wish me luck!

Road to ChaosLudik: Battleline Complete!

Hey Everyone!

So I managed to complete the last three Ogres I need to fill out my army.  So here they are in all their glory:

Man my picture box is awful, but at least you can clearly see everything.  They came out okay although the one on the end with the Orange pants suffers from a case of "I did not properly strip this guy before I re-based/painted him.

The important part is they are done!  I got my three main units completed and now I have to round out the army with the Heroes and Auxiliary bits.  So I have a Tyrant, an Ironblaster and a Gorger in the pipeline and I ordered the Butcher and last Gorger as well.  I hope I get them soon as I planned on having this army done by the end of the week...although thats not looking like it'll happen...

Hopefully I can pound out the last few models by the end of the's hoping!
