Pox Walkers look great, Mage, well done!

Had my first outing with the Ork hord. 5 players 1k points each, 4 Orks players and one Dark Angels player.

Badmooon Orks bought artillery, bikes and some deff koptas
Death Skull bought Lootas on foot, shooters in a trukk, nobz with Warboss in a Trukk, a couple of large squads of choppa boyz.
Evil Suns brought the mechs, Deff dread, kila kans, some lootas in a trukk, 2 warbosses (one in Mega armour) with a bunch of choppa boyz.
Goff, mass infantry with a weird boy, flashgitz and lots of grots around an artillery, with a warboss on bike.

Dark Angels brought the big guns, lascannon dreadnought, devastator squad with missile launchers, couple of tac squads, and a unit of terminators.


Scenario was 4 player, one on each board edge, and the goffs deploying in the middle holding the object in a building. Whoever held the relic at the end of Turn 5 wins the game. Each army was broken into 3 roughly even sizes, and each turn 1 of these chunks would come on for their armies deployment zone, with the goff re-enforcements coming on at a random edge, determined by the scatter dice.

oh, 5th Ed rules too :)

Was a lot of fun, the Weird boy teleported the flash gits behind the Dark Angels, as pay back for nuking his artillery, but scattered into the forest and they all died. My Lootas had a bad roll trying to whittle down a hord of evil sun choppa's heading my way, then got blasted by the Devastator squad, but still had some left over.

The Goff random deployment rolls meant my Lootas got rush from behind and slaughtered, my and his warboss ended up going toe to toe, they ended up nuking each other, which was awesome.

The Goffs other reserves ended up rushing the Dark Angels, so he got some pay back in there too :)


Mean while the rest of the Evil suns were running towards the Bad Moon, but those deff koptas had a good roll and dropped a good chunk of them. The squad eventually died out except for the nob and war boss in Mega armour, the nob made rush for the relic and got it (Goff had been killed off by Dark angels by that stage). While the lone megaboss went a number of rounds against the biker boyz, eventually it died, but too late for the bikers to do anything about the relic.

The Evil sun lootas shot up my Shoota boyz Trukk which promptly ram shackled into his nob holding the relic, so I got hold of it on turn 4, only to have his lootas and the DA terminators kill my shoota boyz off and run away with the relic.


Everyone had a blast as it was surprisingly even, random luck kept the laughs going especially with the war boss in Mega armour pulling all those save. Having the risk/reward system of 5th just works.

Cool Bat Rep, Mage, I'm glad that everyone had a good time. Also glad to hear that your Orks are performing well! So, what's next on the painting table for you?

Picked up a Dark Imperium box set to help flesh out the mini's from the conquest mags, so I'm doing a variation on the blood ravens theme. Blood Ravens seem to make heavy use of psykers in their planning and on the battle field so, kind of aligns with my Eldar on fluffy level.Messing around with the bases at the moment.

Might sell the Death Guard, they dont float my boat and well I opened "that" cuboard and saw my build queue...

They're looking really nice. I love the gold tips on the laurels on the banner, faded off of the green looks great. I like the red you're using, it photographs well. 8)

I always wanted to see a Blood Ravens army on the table. Glad that my dream is finally realized  ;D. They look great, Mage, really love that Banner on the Ancient too. You've been painting quite a storm since your last post! ;D

Thanks guys, will be building these guys up with the stuff from warhammer conquest magz a bunch of us are collecting. So will have to have some marine skirmishes at some point :)

I like the red you're using, it photographs well. 8)

I was surprised at how well it came out, leadbetcher with multiple layers of vallejos transperant red, then used their metallic black airbrush version as a wash, seems to work well, just trying to find the right mix to use for highlights.

The librarian which drops next month will be interesting since it should be blue.

Stoked that I managed to get hold of Artel's version of Angelo though. Looks sooo much better than FW version, and sooo much cheaper.
