Thanks!

Played a couple games of Merciless today (my in progress Mordheim replacement).  Absolute riot.  Two three-player games and I managed to win neither (as usual).

Thanks.  It's all my old scratch-built Mordheim stuff that's been sitting in a bin since...2014?  I built the table to play Mordheim and then my buddy made it so miserable to play that I stashed it all and never bothered again.  Now I've decided that I wanted to use the terrain, so I wrote a quick and fun (violent) game for it, and it's been a blast.

Welcome, and enjoy your stay.  Check out time is 1030 hours, and the breakfast is Continental but not comped unless you're pre-booked your stay with our app.  ;)

Finally knocked out the third (my least favourite) of the Chaos Warriors from the Khagra's box.

Great work mate! I can not get over how well you manage to make me like a style of figure I was not originally a fan of.

You and me both.  I was hesitant to even buy them, but I wanted just a couple Chaos Warriors and this box had only three. :D  I'd still prefer them about 15% "less" of everything.  Even the ones here I've chopped/trimmed off excess dangly bits, spikes, etc.  Thematically they fit together in my head as a warband; my warband is more or less a few Chaos warriors who have recruited a Beastman tribe to fight for/with them (more in line with old school Chaos from the 90's).

I have a few human cultists, a human mage, three Chaos warriors, a minotaur, a few beastmen and a bunch of ungors.  So I can make/alter my warband as my games progress.

I like your chaos warriors, but I love those ungors. Most excellent colouring in, the naturalistic colours are the shizzle.

Some 3D printed Beastmen I knocked out.  Didn't turn out great, but I needed some to do pictures later for inclusion in some games.  Will use these guys in my Merciless warbands and for dungeon crawling.

Got in several games of Merciless on Christmas day, though I only snapped a few pics.  My buddy has assembled a Frostgrave Barbarian/Viking themed warband and I ran my Chaos Warriors + Beastmen group.





I also started the first three figures of an "opfor" or loaner warband for Merciless - using a box of Frostgrave Knights and Fireforge soldiers I received in a Secret Santa exchange.  I'm going to be looking for decals to do the shields in the future - but haven't found a suitable source.



Because these guys will inevitably serve double duty in the dungeon crawl, I've continued the same basing theme.

Great stuff as always mate. I particularly like the idea of the Fireforge Northmen with different heads like that.
