Miniature Games Construction Yard

In this blog I'll talk about various miniature games. Custom miniatures and minor conversions are my favorite pastime. I'll cover scenery making and painting too. The WIP you'll see here is all about Necromunda, Epic 40,000, Warhammer Fantasy 5th Edition, Warmaster and Warhammer 40K 3rd Edition.

What follows is the Warmaster battle report I promised in blogposts 85045 and 85043.

Orc general Gutrok and his warband is marauding the outskirts of the Empire for quite some months. Many villages have been plundered, but no great cities have suffered any assaults yet. That's why the Empire troops are ignoring warboss Gutrok and his greenskins for the moment.
The greenskins warband however is approaching a High Elf outpost. And the elves have prepared to stop Gutrok's menacing force.

1000 Points of Warmaster 28mm units on each side, the Orcs are taking the first turn.

The game went off with a slow start. The Orc General was unable to get his main retinue moving, where fortunatelly his Goblin Hero managed to gain terrain on the left flank. The Wolf Rider made good pace and the Orc Shaman flew his Wyvern over the nearby farmhouse to oversee the action.

The High Elves initiated a counter-move to bock the progress of the green horde as soon as possible. The Gryphon-mounted General planned to rip those annoying Goblin foottroops to pieces with the help of the stout Silver Helms (which, in my army, are plain bone-white-helms). On the High Elves' left flank the fast cavalery started a flanking manoeuvre with the intent to run over the stagnant Orc units.

The Orc Shaman did not sit idle and watch. He noticed those pesky pointy-eared archers creeping closer and closer. Time for some great Orc Waaagh magic! -*!STOMP!*- The foot of Gork himself crushed some poor Elves deep into the soil. Leaving behind a small puddle as deadly reminder to the Orc's presence.

Enraged of the loss of his loyal archers, the High Elf General orders his Gryphon to render the Goblins to shreds.

My love of using vintage cardboard templates encouraged me to unleach another magic spell from the fingertips of my High Elf Wizard. Alas, no luck in doing any considerable damage... Those Wolfriders are nimble and fast, avoiding the magic power.

To cut a long story short, later in the game the Orcs and accompanying Giant managed to get into close combat range. But the persistant defence of the Elves kept them at bay and scattered the green horde... Gutrok will have to gather him a new warband to ravage the Empire.
