The mother of all games warmachine challenge

Postby Dark Angel » Fri Nov 15, 2013 12:13 pm

So Ryan (aka total Gee aka G aka Total Ghee aka that strange drunk dude in the corner) has been looking to run a large fully painted game of Warmahordes for some time. Yesterday on a chat we ended up agreeing to such a game. The catch is that we are not talking about your typical 150 point unbound game, oh no, we are going to have a 7 caster, 250 point game. It'll be huge, it'll be epic, it'll probably take all weekend. For those of you that play other systems, I would say this is equivalent to a 15000-20000 point Fantasy game or a 40k game in excess of 10000 points (although its important to note that this game does not scale as well as the GW games, it'll be truly massive).

Now neither of us can do this right now so we have agreed to do it in December of next year giving us enough time to paint all our stuff up. We'll use this thread to post progress, talk smack and hopefully post the battle report.

I'll post pics of my entire army as it stands now over the weekend long with the army list as it stands now and what needs to be painted. For me, I worked out I have roughly 110 points to paint and 70 models but that will change.

The rules for this are simple, come December next year (or earlier) we need to have 2 fully painted 250 point lists and 7 casters ready to rumble (to close to 290 points for me once you include beast points). The list has to be legal, can include mercs and minions provided the chosen factions allow it and will use unbound rules. The list posted now does not have to be the list used at the actual games and new releases and additional purchases can be used provided they are painted.

Ryan will be using his dirty elves, otherwise known as the Retribution of Scyrah and I will be using Trollbloods (with a heavy minion leaning).

The gauntlet has been thrown :)

I think I will need to do some major moving of beasts around. One of the things that is apparent is that I don't have enough heavy beasts. I have one of everything but all of my casters want lots of them so that presents a problem....The current troll army list is as follows:

Borka Kegslater (-5)
Mauler (9)
Rok (11)
Winter troll (5)

Calandra (-5)
Impaler (5)
Slag troll (6)

eGrissel (-6)
Runebearer (2)
Bomber (10)
Storm troll (5)
Swamp troll (4)
Impaler (5)

eDoomy (-6)
Mulg (12)
Pyre troll (5)
Blitzer (9)
Axer (6)

eMaddy (-5)
EBDT (10)

Barny (-6)
Wrastler (9)
Bull snapper (3)
Spitter (8)

Rask (-6)
Boneswarm (4)
Swamp horror (8)

Fellcaller (3)
Janessa stonetide (3)
Stone Scribe Chronicler (2)
Whelps (2)
Champion hero (3)
Alten Ashley (2)
Croak Hunter (2)
2x Feralgeists (2)
Witch doctor (3)
Lanyssa (2)
Thrullg (3)
Totem Hunter (3)
Victor Pendrake (2)
WE&SJ (9)
Max KSB with UA (5)
Max Long Riders with Solo (16)
Max burrowers (6)
Max Bushwackers (8)
Sons of Bragg (6)
Max champions with UA (13)
Max Fennblades with UA (10)
Runeshapers (4)
Max Warders (8)
Max Ambushers (8)
Max Nyss hunters (10)
Min Bone grinders (2)
Max Posse (9)
Swamp gobbers (1)
Gatorman Bokkor and shamblers (6)

Of that, only the Shamblers does not currently exist in my possession but I know I will get it by then. I may need to beef up my warbeasts as well. After it all, all I have left on the bench is a Pyre troll and a Bouncer so I have very little in the way of wiggle room. Pics of it all to follow....

Madness, I say! MADNESS!

That said, I'm jealous that you guys can do it. I'm not sure if anyone in Cape Town has the metal (and plastic) for a game that size yet.

Awesome idea.

So i count 8 Warlocks in Trolls, so who you leaving at home?

And RoS only has 7 so I guess you know exactly who Ryan is using because they cant Merc-it.

I have to use Barny and Rask to bring enough minions to make it work, will probably be bringing Calandra, eMaddy, Borka, eDoomy and eGrissel. Seems the most appropriate given their stature. Of course this is all bere I actually work out a gameplan so it might change...

The Minions contingent, almost fully painted, only a unit of bonegrinders (not pictured) and the witch doctor to do.

So in order to be fully painted I have to paint 70 figures totaling 110 points. This may change as I am light on beasts and I may get another bomber to fill that out, plus I'm toying with the idea of a warwagon.

What I have to paint:

Borka kegslayer plus attachment
10 Burrowers
10 Nyss hunters
10 Swamp shamblers (when released)
12 Fennblades including the UA
6 Toughaloes including the Solo
5 warders
3 Runeshapers
4 Bonegrinders
Rok
Blitzer
Swamp troll
Lightning troll
Winter troll
Impaler
Witch doctor
Sons of Bragg

This is what it looks like now:
Image

First up, the Toughaloes which I have tried to paint 3 times...

Nice one. looks like a lot needs to be painted but with a good "hour a day" you should manage to get them all done.
