This weekend, Eldar of all sorts took to the table in what was a brutal and bloody battle. I was going to make a battle report on that this morning (and save this post for later in the week), but our combat cameraman was unexpectedly waylaid by Hobbits, and no pictures have arrived yet. No matter, will get to it in a few days...
|That's a lot of WHFB for someone who doesn't play WHFB...|
RTVoril gave me the Ciaphas Cain Omnibus. While I've already read that its been a while, and having just finished the best of hammer & bolter it'll keep me entertained during my lunches thru the holidays. Besides, this time of year and the current shopping frenzy, i don't want to go anywhere near a bookstore...
Murl gave me gift cards both for Christmas and a much belated birthday present (gift cards are always accepted btw) and so along with some paint (I always need paint), I got the watchtower. I was telling Screech that I'm still not sold on getting an Ork flyer. So rather than get something I'll use once every 2-3 months I got the tower. He threw his hands in the air and laughed at me saying: 'oh, so instead of something you'll use once in a while, you got something you'll never use?'
Damn it, I hate it when that boy's gotta point...
It'll be painted as the 'castle' to be defended by my little contingent of Stirlanders, not that I ever use them or even have a fieldable army. In reality it just means that at we'll least have some actual WHFB terrain now when playing Mordheim. Which means I'll use it almost as much use as a bomma of some sort. Speaking of Screech, he gave me the other two boxes there. The Chaos Lord will be used as a herald (the painting of which was already started) to lead the Daemon contingent that came with the Red Corsairs, and I just recently gotten some more Catachan arms to make more beastman IG. Thus I had been hunting on a good deal for some more ungor. Well there's no better deal than that!

I also have another WHFB mini to be given as a gift. While I prefer not to show who's getting what before they get it, I have no idea as to when I'll be seeing Madival, other than it'll be sometime after Christmas. So as this is my Christmas post, it's been posted here.

I figured he'd make for a good Necromancer but in painting him I realized he's actually a vampire with fangs and an armored breastplate. Meh, those two things aren't too noticeable, so could easily be used as either (especially as I already have 2 Strigori for him in varying states of disrepair). He's painted in the colors of Sylvania prior to its annexation by Stirland and while a simple addition, I rather like the arm coming out of the ground. I didn't have any skeleton arms, so its obviously someone recently deceased. Or rather as a Necromancer/Vampire would see it: 'here comes one more recruit for the cause...'.
