AoS: Death & Destruction

Sat in his lair, Orruck warlord Naythorn Pain of the Ootribe was not at all content with the general lack of violence and debauchery of late. It had been a slow year and sitting around twiddling his thumbs sat ill with him, there were foes to best and land to pillage, yet none would take onContinue reading “AoS: Death & Destruction”

Welcome to the new Age… of Sigmar

Knowing me knowing you(tube) I, like many a miniature gamer, spend a lot of time painting, and for entertainment enjoy nothing more than to watch (or at least listen) to YouTube whilst I’m doing so. Now there are a lot of entertaining folks out there in the YouTube community sharing their hobby and one suchContinue reading “Welcome to the new Age… of Sigmar”

The Necrotic Tome p.7 – Ancients

I have acquired some new miniatures for my Grande Armée de la Mort, and having plenty of time on my hands I have managed to paint them up. These minis were made by Rackham Miniatures and are beautifully sculpted with lots of elaborate details. The Wraith floats through the shadows, brandishing a wicked blade with which to reap the wretchedContinue reading “The Necrotic Tome p.7 – Ancients”

Gathering the Clans

My fantasy campaign with Graham has been hotting up with our second battle taking place this week. The first scenario saw King Graham Ironfoot’s Dwarves holding the Hellmouth Pass against an outnumbering horde of undead minions, funneling them in to a bottle-neck and destroying them completely. In the second confrontation he sent out word to call allContinue reading “Gathering the Clans”

Necrotic Tome pt.6 – Calling the Muster

I have been beavering away at the hobby bench these past couple of weeks adding new troops to my Grande Armée de la Mort. The first addition is this War Sphinx with howdah which will count as a heavy chariot in God of Battles. As well as this monster I have been doing some convertingContinue reading “Necrotic Tome pt.6 – Calling the Muster”

The only good Dwarf is a Dead Dwarf!

  Over the last couple of weeks, my good friend Graham and I have been locking heads in the realms of fantasy with God of Battles by Jake Thornton. In our previous battle, my Undead horde destroyed Graham’s Dwarves in a glorious orgy of blood, so we decided this time to do a follow-on scenario. We used scenario two from theContinue reading “The only good Dwarf is a Dead Dwarf!”

Necrotic Tome pt.4: Back from the (Un)Dead

A series of unfortunate events have kept me away from blogging over the course of the last couple of weeks, however what doesn’t kill me can only make me stronger! which leads me nicely on to the subject of this post… I have at least been steadily working through my ‘Grande Armée de la Mort’Continue reading “Necrotic Tome pt.4: Back from the (Un)Dead”

The Necrotic Tome pt.3 ‘The Lost Slayer’

Earlier this month I attended a ‘God of Battles’ tournament at Foundry Miniatures. Jake ‘Quirkworthy’ Thornton, the designer of this excellent fantasy game, ran the day and although a petite affair it was a most enjoyable time. My Undead army project had been sitting on the back-burner since my last post in March, buried but not forgotten, and I thoughtContinue reading “The Necrotic Tome pt.3 ‘The Lost Slayer’”

Necrotic Tome pt.2 – ‘Rattling Bones’

‘Sticks and stones may break my bones but there are plenty more where they came from. My ‘Grande Armée de la Mort’ is never stronger than when in the presence of death and the heat of battle!…’ Having pitted my wits against the inscrutable Quirkworthy just the other day, I feel that I have finally startedContinue reading “Necrotic Tome pt.2 – ‘Rattling Bones’”

The Necrotic Tome pt.1 – ‘Mistress of Bones’

“I am the Ghoul Queen, harbinger of darkness and reaper of souls, I am an artiste of the dark arts and favoured daughter of Lord Vutesh. This tome, my finest work, will be a record of my majesty…’ This project started a little while ago when Jake Thornton got me thinking about building an army for his new rule set God of Battles.Continue reading “The Necrotic Tome pt.1 – ‘Mistress of Bones’”
