A Breton Lord’s key to killing monsters and other large annoyances. So, it’s a fact that the 8th edition of Warhammer came with an influx of large and formidable beasts. Monsters like Hydras and Giants have always been common, but recently I’ve seen an influx of Stegadons, Sphinxes, and Bells/Furnaces on the tournament circuit. Initially I was really frustrated by this. Even a full lance of Knights isn’t guaranteed to put down something like an Araknarok in a single combat round, and if they fail on the charge, knights become almost completely noneffective against even a common monster. And so, I developed a character build designed to give my boys the upper hand against these behemoths. The load out looks like this; Bretonnian LordRoyal PegasusThe Heartwood Lance (Reroll failed to wound) Charmed Shield (Discount first hit on the bearer on a 2+)Tress of Isoulde (Hit a single model in base contact on a 2+ for one round)Virtue of Heroism (Bearer gains the Heroic Killing Blow special rule) The Charmed Shield helps to protect your Lord from cannon balls and the like.The trick here is to get your flying Lord in the face of whatever big ugly thing your enemy is threatening you with. This loadout works best if you can bait your opponent into charging your lord with your target because a character is required to use a magic weapon if they have one. So, say that your Lord parks in from of a Sphinx and gets charged. The Lord Holds, activates the Tress of Isoulde, hits the Sphinx on a 2+, and then, since he isn’t charging, wounds the sphinx only on a 6. This is where The Heartwood Lance comes in. It allows you to reroll any fails to wound, and you can only wound the sphinx on a 6, so you effectively double your chances to get a Heroic Killing Blow and break that sphinx into a hundred loose, powdery, bones. Of course, this build is just as effective when charged into a group of multi-wound models like Ogres (who just got a book and should be even more prevalent) or enemy warmachines (Which are equally vulnerable to killing blow). If you find your opponents only fall for charging the Lord once, or you simply don’t like the idea of getting charged, I recommend you equip your lord with one of the core rulebook swords which give the bearer additional attacks. (Like the Sword of Strife)Now, go forth, my Breton brothers, and show the enemies of King and Lady that the sons of Gilles are cunning as they are bold!

Tumblr needs more Warhammer Fantasy.

The world needs more warhammer fantasy. The community dried up with 8th ed :-(

Remember like forever ago when I decided to do a 1v1 duel-style diorama/mini/whatever? No? Well, I did.

Took one of the witch elves from the bloodwrack shrine I bought forever ago to be my Chaos Warshrine (the Avatar of Khaine from that now serves my Eldar army and the medusa demony thing is a Daemon Prince for my Warriors of Chaos army) and one of my many, many marines, and set out to do it.

The story should be pretty clear- he’s failed to land any real telling hits on her (except maybe on the right forearm but it’s clearly not enough to prevent her from using that knife) while she’s given him a number of deep gashes even through the power armor and taken his eye. The marine is in trouble and probably doomed. 

[Before you comment ‘what the hell is a Warhammer Fantasy character doing fighting a 40k character,’ I was not about to spend a dime on a Dark Eldar witch when I already had a perfectly good Dark Elven same goddamn thing. Maybe she’s a Dark Eldar who likes to cosplay as an exodite witch or something. Maybe she doesn’t like splinter pistols and just went for double knives. Who gives a shit.]

She’s kneeing the more dangerous of his weapons out of the way while directing an attack at the other arm. Probably take it off at the elbow.

Got lots of good use out of the “Blood for the Blood God” technical paint and had some fun painting up an Ultramarine for the first and most likely last time. Not really a huge fan of the smurfs, but what the hell, they’re the iconic marines and I didn’t really feel like painting one of my own guys getting diced like a ham.

There are a couple of hairs stuck to the model, even after I went over it as best I could before photographing it. Such are the vagaries and compromises of living with several cats and a wargaming army.

This took way too long for a model I won’t even use in a game, so I probably won’t be doing anything like it again, but it was kinda fun and as good a way as any to burn off the excess caffeine in my system tonight. *shrug*

Instead of glorifying violence against women, glorify violence against the foul xenos and the lying heretik.

Im going to be unpopular and say that glorifying anything Matt Ward wrote is only a slightly better subsitute.

Grey Knights have been around since at least Index Astartes II, which Ward had no hand in.

That’s what happens when you fake being a nerd just to impress girls, you look dumb as fuck.
