A little King of War

I have been not been dead but rather painting allot of Kings of War by Mantic games. I have had a sort of tiff with GW latley that I need to get off my chest. Basicaly Im done with them. I scaled back my collection of 40k. My IG now fit into my old GW back pack. I have no fantasy battle stuff. 40k has too many new books and things are coming out too fast. Rather than trying to keep up im done with it for now.

So on to Kings of war Star wars X-wing and various other things that I like and that are much better games in my opinion. Here is a bit of what I have been working on as far as kings of war.



Here are some shots of a recent under ground battle me and a friend devised i'll put up a link to the pdf document. Have a go at trying it out and tell me what you think.



The anvil was magical and gave units within 6 inches elite. My opponent plays Abyssal dwarves.

                Final goblin victory but just barely. And only after a toe too toe General slugfest.

The final Mordian infantry and support equipment count

OK whew a few weeks of collecting soaking in simple green and scrub scrub scrubbing! Let me just say that I hate the smell of simple green and so does my wife. I'm sure she is glad I am done with it. This is a larger undertaking than I thought or had planned out, but, as this is my only GW at the moment I guess that helps. Here is the list of what I have:

6 converted upper command pieces
18 special weapons
9 sgts
57 las rifle infantry
3 commissars
10 ratlings
19 heavy weapons teams ( 59 infantry as I'm counting the guns + a few more to go with the two thudd guns I have)
junior officers 3

So 170 total including some rough riders incoming from curious constructs heads from Victoria Lamb. 

Also on the list:

1 Valkyrie
3 leman russ tanks
1 hell hound flame thrower
2 thudd guns
1 Old school armorcaste baneblade!
1 chimera
1 aegis def line with quad gun.

Plans for the future.....

Well I want allot of cav and if the Rough Riders turn out well Ill make more of them. I plan on going with the cannon wheels on the las cannons to make them look like artillery and less like a man portable gun.

Looks like I may grab some gors and convert me up some beast men conscripts as well for that rouge trader feel!

Sorry for the garbage pic I was in a hurry! See you nest time!

Some progress on my Mordians....

Ok, so a bit of a busy week work wise but I got 95% of my E-bay purchases in hand. Including a pretty decent sized army for a really good price! I have had the miniatures in simple green for over 24hr and I will do more scrubbing. I hate the smell of this stuff its nauseating. Anyhow I have over a hundred figs. I am also stripping a Leman Russ Annihilator which is mostly made of plastic and that will have to be soaked for a long time.

I have also been working on my command section. Creed has been chopped and GS's on the shoulder boards. I need a dwarf pipe from the fantasy line to put in his right hand instead of the cigar.

Here is my medic the floating skull is carrying blood plasma it'll have a tube running to the little gadget the guard is holding.
The next one was a simple conversion. Master vox.




This next one I'm really proud of. It is an old RT IG and I put new arms he will getting shoulder boards as well. and Ill do up some free hand and transfers on the army standard!

Mordian Iron Guard Gun Team Dilema.....

So im looking into converting my IG heavy weapons. I have some decisions to make as to weather I want to keep them as is and on the large round bases. OR should I use these style of gun carriage types. If you follow the blog let me know what you thin.

 These gun wheels are form Forge Planet. These would require me to separate the upper half of my heavy bolter teams and possibly glue them to these legs:

Which im happy to do but I am on a budget.

The other way I was thinking was this,

This one would be good for las cannons as they are the only heavy with bipod stabilizers.

Then there is the good old standard.....

So there you have it.  Im not sure how I want to do things. Help!
