[Open Combat] Gaming Night 4

Another night of Open Combat, another night of awesome gaming fun!
This week saw my Chaos Warriors raid Ba'la's Orcs in their village - the terrain was an absolute treat to play on, and really brought our games to life.
Ba'la's Orcs were able to defeat the Chaos Warriors in protection of their village, but their respite was short, as they were immediately attacked by a band of holy knights soon after, who were able to dispense fanatical justice!

[Open Combat] Chaos Warriors - Champion


I thought this model, which is the Slaughterpriest with Hackblade and Wrath-hammer model from Games Workshop (and was included free with an issue of White Dwarf), would make a great addition to my Chaos Warriors for Open Combat, so that meant it was time to get him assembled and painted for the tabletop!

This is fantastic model, with lots of character - in my mind's eye, don't see him as a priest, but as a mighty barbarian champion of Chaos, blessed of his foul god - and standing tall on his 40mm base, he is well suited to lead my Chaos Warrior warband into battle!

[Open Combat] Stormcast Eternals


My next warband is comprised of the other half of the Age of Sigmar starter set - Stormcast Eternals! The warband is made up of a Liberator Prime (Leader), two Liberators and two Retributors.

This warband is only five-strong because the models are all on 40mm bases (which does take significant space on a 2'x2' board) and also fits with the lore of the Stormcast Eternals - super-elite warriors, wielding the finest armour and weapons.

[Age of Sigmar] Model Size Comparison


I'd seen some Kings of War armies online, using Stormcast Eternals as Ogres, and after assembling my own Stormcast Eternals recently I thought I'd compare the model size.

To my eye the Stormcast Eternals make a good 'counts-as' Ogre model (size-wise anyway) and the fact that they both come on 40mm bases makes the substitution pretty solid.

I had a Chaos Marauder and Chaos Warrior on my desk at the time of snapping this photo, so they're in the picture getting their photobomb on.
Looking at the picture now, I wonder why the Chaos Warriors aren't on 40mm bases along with the Stormcast Eternals.

[Dragon Rampant] Age of Sigmar Armies WIP

After finishing my Chaos Warrior warband for Open Combat, I thought I would FINALLY assemble the models from the Age of Sigmar starter set I had lying around.

I plan on using these models for Dragon Rampant, a system I've been interested in for a while, so here's hoping that this project doesn't fall by the wayside!
Alternatively, I can use the models as additions to my Open Combat warbands.

Khorne Bloodbound - Mighty Khorne Lord. Khorgorath, Bloodsecrator,
Bloodstoker, 2 Blood Warriors and 5 Bloodreavers

Stormcast Eternals - 10 Liberators
