All (too) Quiet in the Provinces: Army Parade and Review of Projects

I have been very quiet on the Warhammer front for some time, focusing on reducing my pile of lead and plastic.

The torrent of releases and my general avarice when it comes to models has resulted in quite a large pile accumulating. The quick succession of releases in the last 18 months has left our household reeling, and quite frankly, a bit swamped with Warhammer, and a strategic withdrawal subconsciously took place.

Maybe its also because the Lizardman and Ogre General in our house has discovered "Gurlz, Skateboardz, Music Concerts and Social life !" (No particular order) , and gaming has taken a backseat.

Also HOMEWORK has taken over a lot of his time... taking art, so quite a lot of hard grind needing to go into it. I must say though some amazing artwork coming out of those talented young hands!

Certainly the hobby brushes have not been taken up for a while for some of the inhabitants of our mancave...

And  I too  have been diverted from WHFB into FoW for the last few months,first building and then re-fighting D-Day, and then onto Operation Bagration:

See my other blog Wargames Obsession for detail. I have managed to make quite a dent in the pile of (non-Warhammer) models under the desk

Anyhow there are quite a few unbuilt models from out European haul in January still sitting on the shelf. 40K is history, and Luc's Tau are also still up for sale, anyhow, what's left of them (Unbuilt fire warriors, Kroot, etc)

I have resisted buying the New Dwarfs book, and may well sell off my Dwarven Throng, or can I really get myself to part with what really was my first GW Army ? Haven't played them for ages though...

So I have decided to at least make an effort, and parade my armies, as they currently stand over the next few weeks, and a quick update on unfinished projects:

I came across this useful item, that has Dark Ark written all over it, and also,  in small letters (dare I say it, SAGA...)

Out came the spray can, undercoat done. Here comes an item that can only lead to interesting gaming...

So I next reached for the camera and Army closest at hand (and mostly complete, ok, bar a hand full of models) No, not my Dark Elves, but my Daemons of Chaos:

Faction by faction, they poured from the Maelstrom across the Frozen Wastes

Khornish Nasties first:

Leapers of the Flame, pouring forth from:

Flaming Hounds

Alternate Karnak



Alternate Herald of Khorne
 (Grand Crane, of the -now defunct- Confrontation brand)

Alternate Skull Cannon, with another alternate Herald of Khorne

The Old Guard

All my Khornish Nasties together

Slaaneshi (Minus Seekers - not fully painted); and another unit of Daemonettes, not worth another pic, again with alternate herald and The Mask, more useful, I think in the pred Ed. rules. 

Tzeench Daemons

Papa Nurgle and his Garden of Delights

Herald and BSB (Pardon my poor photographic skills - still workin' on it)
Alternate Herald (Bit of a theme developing here? )

Filth Dogs

Epidemius and his offspring



  1. My word! I hadnt realised you had amassed such a collection of demons - most impressive.
