The Groovy Ghoulies

Ok, I feel like I'm channeling my inner-Grove with the name (look it up) of my Nighthaunt warband, but this makes my second force for Warcry!

I used a Guardian of Souls to represent my Dreadwarden, Dravoch Blacksoul, who is condemned to endlessly chant the crimes he committed in life in a sibilant whisper. Other than that, the warband is WYSIWYG... three Grimghast Reapers, a Glaivewraith Stalker, and four Chainrasps.

They will be a perfect campaign opponent for The Shadow Haunters (my Unmade) who have the Hunters of the Dead background. I suppose I'll have to paint my graveyard terrain now...

My third Warband is almost done and I'll start my solo campaign shortly. I'll be adding more warbands as I go, but I want to start getting in some games!

The Unmade

Here's the rest of my first warband for Warcry..

I'll post my Nighthaunt Warband in a few days..

I know it's been a long time since I've posted. I've not been idle. In fact, I've painted more in the last few months than the rest of the year. I just haven't taken the time to take photographs or sit down to write about my projects.

Warcry is the new(ish) skirmish game from Games Workshop. The mechanics of the game are easy and fast. Possibly too simple if you are a fan of granular sets like Mordheim and Necromunda, but I've been enjoying narrative games more than crunchy ones these days. Despite the rules lite nature of the mechanics, there is still a good level of tactical choices during a battle. I'm not going to go into full review mode (there are plenty of those on the web), but I do like the game.

More than that, I LOVE the new models. My first warband is the Unmade..

These are just a few of the lads. I'm working on the terrain now and I'll post some more photos (no, really) when I can set up a proper table.

One of the things I didn't like about the game was that the cards for the models only include one of each type. When you have multiples of the same ganger, you add a numbered card below to track Ascended One I, Ascend One II, etc. The cards also featured photos of the studio versions of the model. This created a little bit of a disconnect for me as I wanted to name all of my fighters and I wanted the cards to be MY guys. Not a huge problem - I just made my own!

In addition to The Unmade, I have a ready painted Nighthaunt faction.. what? I've never posted my Nighthaunts? Hrm.. I'll add that to the list. I'll certainly feature my Warcry Nighthaunts soon. I'm hoping to get in some games as soon as all of the terrain is ready and I'll try to feature a battle report.

Hopefully the next post won't take so long!
