hahahahaha thanks, man! And no worries, it's the thought that counts! hahaha

Oh, and speaking of playing games.. I had a nice group battle 2 weekends ago. 3k each side-- me and my Brets, with Ogres, and High Elves versus another High Elf army, Dwarfs, and Skaven!

Wasn't able to get decent pics.. but here's two that shows our table and terrain:





My side lost though.. Insanely lucky Grudgethrower's 4 out of 5 shots were direct hits!

I'll bring my camera the next time we play!

Also forgot to post this earlier. hehehe



Cheers!

Hey guys!

Just a quick update from me. I played a 2,500pt. game last week and it was my first time fielding that many points all at once!



I played against someone who's playing 2,500pts. for the first time as well. He has a Skaven army with 2 HPAs and a Screaming Bell. This was his deployment:



I played with a HKB Lord with a unit of 11 Knights Errants with the Errantry Banner, a BSB plus 2 defensive Paladins leading 9 KotR, Lvl 4 Life Prophetess with 8 Grail Knights, a Lvl 2 Beast Damsel with 42 Men-at-Arms, Pegasus Knights, Peasant Bowmen, and 2 Trebuchets.



Unfortunately, I'm still lacking a few of my army's models so I had to proxy a bit (or leave gaps inside units). I've already ordered what I'm missing and should get them in a week or two.

The whole game was pretty evenly matched. I destroyed his Rat Ogres in my first turn, but he destroyed my Grail Knights with his HPA. My Pegasus Knights held his Clanrat bus and allowed my KoTR to get the flank charge. My HKB Lord and his Knight Errants killed one HPA. One of my Trebuchets helped reduced his horde's numbers, while the other misfired for 2 turns. My Men-at-Arms were hit with some spells / mortar, and I was able to get Dwellers off on his large Screaming Bell unit.



I was actually marginally down on points in the later turns when I suddenly got the upper hand, all thanks to a good Power Dice roll. My only surviving wizard let loose and cast the Transformation on herself and became a Great Fire Dragon for the rest of the game. She proceeded to chew through the Screaming Bell and Grey Seer's unit.

In the end, I was able to get the victory over the rat men, my first at 2,500pts.!

Congratulations to the win But I must say I feel sorry for the rats a bit....

Hey guys! Its been a while since I last updated this, work has been hectic!

Anyway, the reinforcements I was talking about in my previous post arrived and I foresee a modeling and painting weekend in store for me!



This rounds up my Men-at-Arms unit and adds another Trebuchet to my army. I also got two large oval bases (from 40k) to mount my warmachines on. I just want a tidy look for these guys! hahaha

My first Trebuchet is coming along nicely. I'm 98% done with the machine itself, and about 90% done with the crew. I'm going to base it as well before calling it done. Here's a shoddy WIP shot:



@Meldon, thanks man! It felt great getting the win over the rats. The army extracted its vengance on the next army it played, going 4-0 with HE, so that should make you feel better. hahaha

I'll post more pics over the weekend!

Cheers!

Hey guys!

I finished my Field Trebuchet! I waited patiently for my large oval base to come in so I can base the thing properly.

Sorry for the rushed pics. It's nighttime here and I'm sleepy! LOL













The dog on the base is dedicated to my black Labrador Retriever Les, who passed away 2 years ago. Miss you buddy!

Cheers!

Well done Saulot! That base is really nice, the painting is great and the Lab dedication is cool. Les lives forever in Fantasy!
