Dreadtober: Venerable Brother Stumpy

One of my earliest purchases was the Assault on Black Reach boxed set - some marines, some termies and most of all - a dreadnought.
Brother Stumpy was named after a few early battles in which he would start in my backline and waddle slowly forward, struggling to get into melta range. Poor brother Stumpy.

Battle Report: Genestealer Cult vs Space Wolves 1500 points

My friend who is a long time Squat/IG player has been working on a genestealer-based Tyranid army, when GW dropped the Genestealer Cult codex. He picked up the codex last week and pulled together a force based on a mix of his IG and Nids and this weekend we took advantage of a kid-free weekend to throw down some dice against my Wolves.

I took the Ironwolves formation from the Curse of the Wulfen book - its the only Greatpack I have the figures to field. The bonus weapons & wargear for vehicles are nice as is the ability to disembark out of a vehicle having moved 12 inches.

Scenario: Maelstrom of War 5 - Cloak & Shadows - 1500 points

Dreadtober: Bjorn the Fell Handed

I picked up Bjorn years ago on ebay but rarely fielded him in 5th ed due to the point cost (the only time I remember him in a battle was against my opponents Grey Knights going mano e roboto against the GK walker HQ).
40k space wolves bjorn the fell handed - 3 weapon options
I finally picked up a hellfrost cannon right arm recently and so have completed all 3 options for fielding Bjorn.

Oldschool Orks - Weirdboy

A short post today - after getting a pretty good copy of Dark Millenium on ebay with (most of) the psychic cards intact I decided I wanted a psyker in my Ork army to cast power vomit and 'ead banger.
I like the model, the jester outfit bells and staff - suitably bonkers.
I decided his hair and gloves would be flame coloured so he wasn't completely clownish, and did some OSL for his bug eye.

Thats it for him - next week (technically later this week) a brief break from 2nd ed orks for Dreadtober.
