ArchaOne for the Road


On my way to this year's 'Boot, I had some spare time at the airport. So I thought 'why not get some painting done?'

Swirly, Curly, Glowy, Killme

The Silver Tower is a maze of madness, a seemingly-endless journey into mind-boiling insanity...

Ogroid Thaumaturge, Warhammer Quest Silver Tower and Warhammer Age of Sigmar.

And to replicate the experience, GW have kindly given us the Ogroid Thaumaturge!

Gork, Mork and Pork!

We've had Chaos for the last few updates, but there's still one more Ironjawz unit to get battle-ready.

Ironjawz Gore-Grunta with pig iron choppa for Warhammer Age of Sigmar
Gore-Gruntas! 

Even in Age of Sigmar, I can't kick the pig habit.

The Future's not Orange


You must have heard by now. There's a new 40K coming.

Chimera! (not the troop carrier)

I continue my 2017 monster mash (2 down, 3 to go) with the mish-mashiest of them all - the Chimera!

Chimera, Chaos Monster, Warhammer Age of Sigmar
"What do you mean?! - You snore! - Oh I don't- anyway, you have bad breath! -
Because you never brush my teeth! - Oh, stop quickly, let's have a cup of tea!"

Which it not, as I once thought, pronounced 'Shim-era'. It is actually 'Ky-mere-ah', and so would more helpfully start with a 'K'. Actually, being a classical Greek monster, it doesn't even start with a 'C', but with the letter 'Chi', which is really the letter 'X'.

Classic Greek is confusing. No wonder Gerald Butler seemed so angry.

Yellow Brick Foes

In all of our Skype battles, I'll bet that Chaos Warriors get proxied more than any other unit. Well - no more!

Slaves to Darkness Chaos Warrior, Warhammer Age of Sigmar

Let's take at look at these models that I'm sure you've never seen before!*

'Core Unit


Fielding Warriors of Chaos is rather like leading the Labour Party. There's always problems with the leadership.
