40K: Apostles of Contagion Characters and Drone

These long weeks are a proper killer! Done at last:

Lord of Contagion

Malignant Plaguecaster

Noxious Blightbringer

Foetid Bloat-Drone

A few conversions amongst the characters; i removed the nurgling and the horns from the LoC, put the Plaguecasters spew as fire from his hand, and the Blightbringer is arm swaps with a duplicate plague marine champion.

Shadespire: So hyped for this!

So the release date for Shadespire has finally been given, 21st October with preorder from the 14th! I cant describe how hyped i am for this it looks an amazing concept and game!

For me its been the play through videos that truly hint at the potential for the game, rather than something like the picture above, seeing the combos and strategies unfold on screen has got me wishing for a time machine haha.

Also announced are the release of the first two expansion warbands for the game, both released on the 4th November with preorder the week before:

These will provide not only new decking building options for the Blood Reaver and Stormcast forces but also whole new playstyles themselves with the Ironjawz being more aggressive versions of Sigmars boys and the Sepulcral Guard offering swarm tactics and recursion to overwhelm the enemy. GW also released this handy chart to give a rough break down on initial four factions:

We know that there are eight forces coming very soon, they are all mentioned in the rulebook and are previewed here:

Fyreslayers and Skaven are completely new, and the 7th/8th warbands are further Khorne and Stormcast forces with a box of Blood warriors and a Flesh Hound along with a box of Vanguard Hunters.

I will be going balls deep into this so expect painting and battle reports over the coming months!

Lord of the Rings: Hunter Orcs completed

Finished off my 12 Hunter Orcs today:

Not Golden Daemon by any stretch but they are serviceable hehe, and that takes me to 730pts fully painted!

I'm going to add a couple more heroes soon, and hopefully GW will release a warband pack for the Gundabad swords and spears like they have for the Lake Town models... and saving me 20 pounds in the process too.

Lord of the Rings: Gundabad Orc Army

Ive finally been convinced to start playing Lord of the Rings SBG hehe, its only taken two years of nagging by people haha!

I looked over the various forces and decided that a Gundabad Orc army was for me, these are the ones from the Hobbit trilogy rather than the original films:

Ringwraith of Dol Guldur (Using the Dimerlaik models)

Gundabad Orc Warband with Captain, Swords and Spears

Gundabad Ogres

Gundabad Berserkers

Bolg, Castellan of Mount Gundabad

I have a warband of twelve Hunter Orcs about half painted so will have them up shortly too. This all gives me just over 700pts, and our standard games are 600pts, but i want to add in more of the lower level heroes and another warband of troops to give me more options!
