Throgg's Throng

Well here it is. I did a ton of theory hammer on this list, and after hours of toiling over this, I am still not convinced it would work....That said, this is a great characterful list that should be a ton of fun!!

Throgg has been roused from his normal hunting grounds and pushed southward into the realms of men by twin chaos sorcerers that were sent by Archaon himself to find a way to open a second front on the empire and assist the Dark elves in pushing through Nordland. Throgg reluctantly agrees under the promise of booty and more skulls to add to his trophy pile.


2x Chaos Sorc. Mark of Tzeentch, Disc, lvl 2 caster, power familiar

4x 6 trolls

2x Hellcannon

3x 10 Warhounds

5 Warhounds

The plan is pretty simple. Deploy forward with the large hound units screening the advance of the trolls. The hellcannons force movement and the trolls do the killing. Now I might be a noob to fantasy, but i'm smart enough to know there are a lot of ways to get out flanked or shot to death. I plan on leaving the small hound unit behind as a rapid reaction speed-bump. What do you think? Aside from the fact that my wallet is already crying.....

Warhammer FB 8th edition

I played my first real full scale 8th edition game today with my vampire counts army. I really like the way the system has been streamlined. There were a couple of minor changes that really made my list hurt....some easy stuff I had over looked when reading the rules....

1. bound spells from items now use the dice from your main power pool to go....which means the cap of 12 casting dice hoses them except for a little versatility on a few of the effects....in short don't need them in my list....50 found points there....

2. even zombies can kick ass in a horde formation with enough ranks.....

3. Ghouls are really decent shock troops. If I can get the hang of keeping them alive through shooting they should work well as hammer units with the zombie hordes acting as anvils.

4. I like the feel of the vampires in general, but I still want to build my other list idea....2 hellcannon behind about 30 trolls....hee hee!!

Painting a new frontier

Well, I splurged this week and finally bought an airbrush. I have been wanting to try one out, and this one will work while I learn and get my technique down. In any case I have been surfing "teh interwebz" looking for more information to help me get started. I found this video VERY helpful. You might as well. LBursley talks about paints and why they are NOT all the same....
