    Very nice.  Vampire AND Dark Elf, that’s a whole lot of attitude in one package!

    So you going to add in similar for the Empire? Vampire bar wench Genevieve Dieudonné never had an official miniature as far as I know but there must be something good at 10mm…

    Ha, you spotted my obvious name theft!!

    I have models for Felix and Gotrek for my Empire army…
    That should be a winning combo for fighting literally anything.

    Yours come in ones – mine comes as an stl so lots and lots and lots 🙂 It’s a Skaven thing – if one boom boom works two work better and if they go bang then it’s a few less rats that can stab you in the back…

    The colour is really evocative of the Old World. I must say I would fancy adding the Joseph von Helhunten Redeemers to these despite being in grey – a flaming brand or two never goes a miss!!

    Any more Dark Elves planned – normally you are not allowed a new unit without them!

    Alas my Empire to do pile is much bigger than the DE, so much more coolerer stuff.
    Having said that, the DE have 3 chariots and a Hero on a Manticore in the queue.

    Seems you’ve got more than enough troops to be having some really good bashes.  Get to it!  😀

    I’ve been following this thread and your work is fantastic. If I wasn’t such a big 6mm fan I might be tempted, although individual figure removal for 6mm doesn’t seem like a great idea!

    Thanks dude, you inspired me back in the day with your 6mm.
    I still do like your Greek Town.

    You know, 6mm would look even way cooler and I was very tempted.
    The figure removal was the only thing that put me off, though it was a close call.
    The battles would indeed be Epic!

    Big bases and for each figure remove a strip (oh the table size that would need)?

    Dice in the corner to track till a strip needs removing and pop each unit on a sabot?

    Played a game today, 3100 points each.

    Some photos first then some notes and musings later.

    I will do some words probably tomorrow.

    Thoughts on the game.

    STUPIDITY

    We toned down the stupidity rules so that if you fail you don’t attack your own side.
    Even so, the trolls moved so randomly that even with toned down rules they spent most of the battle aimlessly moving back and forth.
    However in true WFB feels they did manage to eventually get into HTH with my Empire General and vomit stomach acid all over him.
    So that was ok.

    It has made us decide to not bother with Cold Ones.
    I have a few models though, so rather than waste the models I may just use them as horses and pretend that’s what they are.
    They won’t be as good in HTH or cause fear, but they will be cheaper and more reliable.

     

    OGRE POWER UNIT

    The Ogre mercenaries were extremely powerful, and they totally managed to hold my right flank all on their own and the Ogre Captain actually killed Samantha’s Dark Elf general.
    But they were 746 points which was a sizeable chunk of my army.
    But they did well and will defo be back again.

    ARTILLERY

    All the games we had played up to and including today we thought that the automatic hits for cannons and so on was just too powerful.
    But today, once again, as always happens the cannons blew up early on.
    Now if we had been using the automatic hit rule as per the book, they would have managed to do some damage before blowing up, however as we had been rolling to it they were once again pretty crappy.
    I also had some organ guns, 5 barrels of hot lead death.
    Again like the cannons rather than all 5 barrels auto hitting we rolled to hit.
    My rolls were pretty bad and it resulted in neither of my organ guns doing much damage.
    I did think that 5 barrels hitting which would be 5 hits per rank (Samantha’s Dark Elves are mostly 5 figures wide and 4 ranks deep) would result in 20 hits would be overpowering as that is 1 hit on every model in the unit.
    Though they still need to roll for damage.
    However given the poor performance and the points and looking at the cannons and the previous games we are going to use the official rules of cannons hitting automatically.

    That may make my artillery actually effective.

     

    TERRAIN

    Terrain, the woods were interesting.
    The road had broken fences and scrub along the borders.
    Whilst cool looking this was a terrible faff for moving.
    We have decided to go lighter on the terrain like that and that our generals prefer more plain open fields in which to battle, so less fiddly roads/linear obstacles next time.

    So we have decided that even with stupidity lite house rules, we will drop Cold Ones.
    We will use the official artillery rules.
    We will have less terrain that makes play slower.

    Never played with or against cold ones and did not realise they are ‘stupid’.  Seems a bit daft as they are trained to be ridden and controlled unlike trolls whom you ‘point and hope’.

    I love a nice fence but have to agree – keep them for skirmish games.

    The mass look of the smaller figure is super – I love 28s but the bulk of these are just right for this type of game. The added detail (even at 3-5 feet) wins over 6mm.

    Their cool is pretty good so they pass pretty much every test, and once they charge into HTH their cold blood warms up and they fire on all cylinders and are no longer subject to stupidity.
    So whilst stupid they are not Troll level Stupid.

    But even so…

    That’s a good looking game!  What was the final result?

    So you both ended up losing your Generals?  Yours looks particularly exposed/isolated.

    What will Samantha use in place of the Coldones?

    We never got to finish.

    My general was not killed by that troll attack, it would be a hard one to call I think as to who would win that fight.
    Mine charged in after most of my units were tied up and he felt left out!
    😀

    I think we will still use the Cold One models but pretend they are regular horses.
    That and I have some chariots to paint up for her.

    Ha!

    So plans.

    Not buy anymore Empire / Dark Elves but paint what I have.
    However….

    I do plan on getting some more armies but the thought of having to paint all this again is terrible, so I will be getting some smaller 1500 point forces.

    I have just sent an order to Pendraken for Orcs..

    The best army for WHFB in my opinion. All those weird and wonderful contraptions that are lethal to both the owner and the enemy😉

    The Warhammer world has plenty of lore and interesting characters that would not stand out well in a 6mm army, so I think you have found a great balance here.

    But I also like other rules sets like Kings of war and Chipco’s Fantasy rules. Neither require figure removal and with the big single unit bases, there is a lot of potential for some nice dioramas to be created.

    Wow, great looking game and they armies look like armies.

    What version of the rules are you using, they sound like an earlier edition with all the crazy but fun special rules?

    I’d chuck a few groups of tress and bushes on the table to break up the flat areas, and then just move them out of the way when units move through.

    WFB 3rd Edition.

    I am going to make some more fields and smaller stuff, things that don’t really affect play.

    I have just sent an order to Pendraken for Orcs..

    They are here.

    2 units of orc archer.
    1 unit of spear.
    2 units of boyz.
    Numerous bolt chuckers.

    Just ordered some wolf riders and command from Kallistra.
    I wanted boar boyz.
    Magister Militum do some that I almost bought, I was struggling as the boars are a bit small.
    However I was willing to overlook this as BOARS!!!
    But they are £6.00 for 9.
    I need 10 so that means buying 2 packs.

    The Kallistra wolf boyz are £6.00 for 16.
    So given I needed other stuff from Kallistra, I went for wolf riders, though I will stat them as boars.

    The house move fell through so whilst that sucks chunks, it does mean getting the models unpacked and on with some painting…

    That sucks big time. Hope you find another suitable house soon. Any urgent reason you wanted to move?

    My wifes mother is no longer able to look after herself and we were planning on buying a big ass house that was so run down we could afford it.
    She would then live with us for her last few years.
    However the house was so falling down that when we got the full survey the mortgage company refused to lend us the money as the house needed so much work to make it suitable to live in, so we kind of dodged a bullet really but that was the only really suitable house.

    Plan B now, try and get a social housing flat for her near us, but we have been trying that for yonks and it was not happening hence us trying to move.
