Down with the Ogres...

Well it was a sad day at the CCGS tournament last Sat. Not only did I only go 1-2 but our other 2 Bloomington crew did just as bad. We had terrible dice, bad deployments, and no luck when it came to our own circumstances.
My games went as follows: The ogres caved Went 1-2 Game 1 was battleline vs. Ray's Dark elves. It took me 2 turns/ 4 rounds of combat to put 3 wounds on a hydra with 12 ogres and 2 mournfangs. My dice were hitting 30-40% of the time and wounding the same when it should of been 50%. Same trouble against infantry with ManEaters. His dreadlord with Reverse ward save charged my ironblaster and I lost by 1, his charge lol. I lost by about 320 minor to Ray. The only thing I look back at now is putting my BSB in with my 12 ogres so on turn 2 when I charged his Hydra I could have done more wounds to the silly thing. But that would have only made the game a tie. Potentially finishing out 6 turns instead of 4 would have helped to. Game 2 vs. Jeem's DoC. Lost again, dawn attack and this was all deployment. I didn't have but 1 chaff unit on the left flank meanwhile I had 1600 pts on the right. All of his was on his left flank, he proceeded to steem down the middle, building blocked the center and he steamrolled his juggernaut unit and 5x7 deep bloodletters into my Ironguts my characters bailed the turn before 2 and I sacrificed them because I knew it would be over. I only killed abotu 200pts in the game. His flamers didn't get less than average hits ever and he did kill 6/7 leadbelchers and 2 dogs before getting into combat with them. I even backed up to the table edge trying to avoid the hammer units. Got to turn 3 and he had a Major victory, another instance if I would have deployed further back or avoided combat more since players only seemed to be getting in average amounts of turns instead of a full 6. Game 3 won against Kevin's VC. I cornered deployed in a corner deployment scenario. He took a charge against my dog and the dog fled allowing me a triple charge on the 40 skeleton/Vlord/WK BSB. Pop. Then reform after crumble and take counterchargers. This was a quick game and we were just messing around. I was done overthinking and thats why I corner deployed. Alex. G. O&G got Best Overall Tom M. Dwarfs got Best General Ryan G. Ogresgot best Best Sports Dave King Dwarfs got best painted Good time and next we'll be doing Spring Offensive in March and Adepticon in April. Hopefully a better show down the road!

Blargh! Morning Update

Well I have been up to alot. Painting mostly so here we go! I coverted and painted up Rhinox chariots for our Orc and Goblin TT with Ogres. Then rebased, washed, and painted 10 boar boyz for the same purpose. Furthermore, modified and finished a Finecast Mangler, kinda like it. Then I painted up some Trolls(old stone metal) which are coming along nicely though not finished. Finally I converted up several hexwraiths from old Knights Errants that a friend gave me a long time ago, Thanks Paul! Enjoy the picks. Going to Springfield, Illinois for a tournament and sounds like a god turnout so up next will be a battle summary report and info on how the list did, OrcOgres of Course.

Scratch built Rhinox Chariots, stone chariot bases

10 boar boyz recoated and finished tray to
mangler squig, horn added
but view, goblin needs couple more highlights
Hexwraiths x7 jumping over and through a wall piece
HxWraiths converted from old Knights errants not to shabby
Some trolls that need based, everything needs some grass!

TT practice Game

Orcs and Ogres Win! Played a Friday night versus 2 locals and their Acon TT lists. They had Minos x5 with hero, 2 tuskigor chariots, and 20 man gor unit and his teammate had VC with 1 Vamp lord on H
ellsteed, TG, VG with 2 units of 3, and 4 units of dire wolves. We spread out like our normal deployment with my LB and bulls on the right flank and Sabretusks spread out. Steve put both of his chariots on the very far flank and boars/orcs on the left. The right flank was boring with the TG screaming at a chariot and killing it but then getting counterfired by leadbelchers. The bulls charged the VG breaking through but then just casting MM and buffs for the rest of the game. Steve's flank, Left, saw more action with charges, holds, countercharges and crumbling. The TG finally made its way around and rear charged the Orcs with only 26/35 left. Steve held and we reformed making the TG crumble. The other unit of VG fell to trolls who made reg. saves. We avoided the Mino unit(which costed 600+ points) and probly saved me from collapsing the right flank where my main points were. Good practice and Steve and I may alter the list a little bit more, we didn't use the Ring but the extra leadbelcher came in every shooting round. We could be set on the lists for now...maybe a couple more practice games and we'll see.

#4 ToFG Chuck 2500 pts Ogre List

Well I may as well post my February Tournament list.  2500 pts.  I plan on taking this to the CCGS Springfield Tournament at the end of the month.  We should have several players there including Dark Elves x2, Ogres x2, Vampire counts x2, beastmen, and potentially another lizardmen.  If Joe shows up he will bring his full skaven horde.  So there will be several competitive builds to play against.  With the list it is a sit back for a couple turns and shoot and sweep with the flank.  The Sabretusks act as chaff and there should be enough offensive magic and augments to help out during the entire game.

Adepticon Team Tourney practice

Well Steve and i played against a DoC and WoC list with level 2 LOL  caster.  They had Nurgle Knights, Khorne Warriors, Tzeench and Slannesh blocks, and a mounted Slannesh unit.  A straight forward crush the enemy build you just have to be careful where the hammers are deployed.  We had enough chaff to deal with everything and shooting lightened the knights and khorne warriors in 2 turns.

Turn 2 shooting and redirecting keeps his hammers busy and models dropping.
By turn 3 we called it.  as you can see a few more turns and we would have decimated several more units.

IronBlaster For the Win!

Pictured left is the ironblaster in WiP stage.  Partially painted and I was still deciding on what to put where.
An underside view of the IB as the wiring was being threaded through for the 2-3 LEDs

Painted but not fully.  Partially Assembled base in background. Gnoblars must still be added.

Ironblaster base, 2 foam parts, upper and lower, with standard sand and wood glue.
The finished product, it is brighter but lighting doesn't help the highlights. Soon pics of Ironblaster 

Pretty much complete.  Maybe a few bolts to dot or that gnoblars arms to glue back on but here you go Aconers!
