Return to the Varangur.

Well it’s been a while since I’ve done anything with these but over the past week I’ve made and painted up a regiment of mounted Sons of Korgaan.




There made from the same 3rd edition plastic warriors my foot regiments are plus metal add on bits. The hell hound is from the reaper bones range which I thought looked really cool.Anyway I think they’ve come out rather nice.

WW1 Bolt Action.

As I’ve already mentioned in a earlier post in a couple of weeks I’m attending a Great War day run by Scarab miniatures.

Rob at Scarab was looking for people to lay on a game,well me and Mike got talking and have now decided to run a small Bolt Action campaign on the day.

With that in mind we decided to give the first scenario a run out tonight.The idea is the Germans hold the bridge in a small village with reinforcements on the way when a British scouting party of Cavalry arrive supported by a armoured car (reserve).6/7 turns with the Germans having to hold the bridge at the end of the game.

Look chaps it’s the Bosh.


Tally Ho.


Overveiw of the table.



The game played out well and with a few minor tweaks should do the job just fine.

We plan to play a second game after with who ever won the first one defending against a count attack,just infantry and support for this one though.

Cheers for now,Steve.

KOW,Hellfire & Stone Campaign, part 1.

Last Friday evening Dave popped around for are first game in this campaign. The book was written for 1st edition but transfer over to 2nd just fine.

The campaign pits Dwarfs verses Abyssal Dwarfs, with a series of 6 game to be played to find the victor.

Game 1,Skirmish at Black Thunder Mine saw us using 250pts armies,with the player holding the Mine taking the win.As the Dwarf player Dave also had a messenger he had to get off the table.

Set up.

The Berserk Brocks destroy everything they touch to take the win for the Dwarfs.


With the Dwarf winning they get to upgrade a unit by one level in all the rest of the campaign games….ouch.

KOW Ogres.

With me not concentrating on any particular army at the moment it gives me the chance to paint what ever I fancy.Well last week is was a unit of Mantic Ogres,I went for a standard Warrior (hand weapon & shield) Horde.Now these are really nice models but for some reason I didn’t enjoy painting them as much as I thought I would though I think they’ve turned out rather nice.




Will this stop me building a actual Ogre Army,no way I’ve already got it planned,the thing is I really like the Reaper Bones Giant range and in this Army I can squeeze in three in a 2,000pt force,nice :0).But for now that will have to wait.

Cheers for now, Steve.
