40k Hardcore Ork Threesome

To the Ilko Gaming Hut once again for some all Orks all the time 40k.
I was in the middle, naturally. No scenario, just kill or be killed.

 Da feeld of Waaagh!

 Da ladz get reddy to rumble!

 Killa Kan Konga!

 Boss Ginganutz Yella Fellas

 Stephen likes to ensure his nob is prominent and visible at all times

 Genrul Ballruum's Killy Metal Ladz

 Tiny wee Wartrakks

 Charge the oooge metal lorry fingy!

The ladz klimb da towah!

In the end it was a close fought draw between my ladz and Ballruum's boyz. He killed da Warboss and got furst blood. I killed his warboss and got into his deployment zone. Warboss Ginganutz just skulked around trying to shoot fings, not like a proper Ork at all.

20mm Resin Buildings for Sale. Collect at Partizan

As part of my move to the Sherwood Soldier Shack I have uncovered a bunch of stuff that, if I’m honest, I’m never going to do anything further with.
Mostly 20mm WW2.
So I’m planning to offload it.
Among the stuff is a medium sized selection of resin buildings. Given that they’re fragile and bulky I’m not too keen on braving the UK postal service with them.
However I will be at Partizan on the 19th of August, so if anyone fancies meeting me in the carpark with a bag of used fivers these could be yours.
Also if you are local to Nottingham then I’m happy to meet up and exchange too.
As I say, I’m not prepared to post them, so please don’t ask.
Let me know via the comments if you’re interested.

Model is a 20mm plastic German, for scale purposes.

Selection of different models formerly available from Sentry/Ravensthorpe designed by Mick Sewell

Part Painted cottage - £8

Part painted bigger house - £10

Unpainted Normandy Farm (pretty massive this one) - £20

Unpainted Normandy church (again pretty big) - £20

Shellhole Scenics (now Lancer miniatures) 

Unpainted damaged Dutch House - £12


Ruined building, mostly paimted - £8

Unknown manufacturer

Ruined building unpainted - £5

Ruined building undercoated -£5

Or £75 for the whole lot.
I'll wait until Friday for offers for the lot then I'll split on a first come first served basis if no takers.

Ogres versus Nurgle Warhammer 8th Edition

Steve and I played this ten days or so ago.
Since which time I have had several sleeps, been to Wales twice, drunk beer and watched some football.
All of which means this may not have my usual level of high quality tactical insight and witty commentary. Stop sniggering at the back.

I went with a tide of grey flesh.

Steve started by whizzing his dogs sideways across the table

In front of the rest of his horrid green and yellow line.

Obviously he'd bought along the Muti...Muto...Muty...Big Chaos Gribbly Thing.

So the lads charged it. In the face.

Charges were a pretty big theme of the whole thing, really.

The Ironguts had a burny hot banner. The Trolls enjoyed that very much.

Unfortunately daemons were also involved.

And warriors crashing in to the side of the lads like that is always going to end badly.

Will. You. Just. Go. Unstable!

The Warriors soon found some more big grey guys to beat up on.

Haha! A Gorger. weren't expecting that, were you?

Finally the Chaos Big Guy sought out the Tryrant.
And sadly Chaos armour is better than Ogre armour. So the Tyrant bought it. Big style.

This was a bit of a thrashing.
The Chaos Nurgle boys are a tough nut to crack for most armies and particularly an Ogre army built on Bulls, rather than one full of Mournfangs and big beasties.

Good fun though..
