DeepWars video battle report #8 – Dark Mariners vs. Scaly Horde

May 15, 2017 Posted by cranky

Welcome to our 8th video battle report for DeepWars.  In this game, we pit the Dark Mariners & Elluvi Dark Eye vs. Cthan the Ravenous and his Scaly Horde battle force.  They battle over the deep-sea mountain Skull Mountain, where Elluvi Darkeye is search of power and ancient arcane artifacts, to increase his power and make more mutated and twisted minions for his own nefarious ends.  In this 800 point game, we show off new mechanics like summoning and Ethereal magic. Check out our link to our YouTube video battle report here!


Age of Sigmar! All hail Father Nurgle!

Well I finally did it – I jumped into painting models for AoS. I can’t wait to get a game in. I have tons of 40k Daemons, and so I figured I’d use those as a basis for an AoS army. I just need a general – and after perusing the GW website – the choice of a Nurgle Chaos leader was clear. Orghotts Daemonspew is just an awesome miniature. Had to get him and paint him up, and get that much closer to playing AoS with my own painted army. Check out my first AoS specific miniature!


It lives! Lumpy the Nurgle Daemon Prince is painted!

Hey everyone, Cranky Old Gamer here and I excited to finally say that a project that has long been on my “to be completed” shelf is finally done. A long while back I started a little conversion project for a Nurgle Daemon Prince, who I named “Lumpy” (for hopefully apparent reasons). Well, he sat in my “needs to be painted pile” for long enough, and I’m happy to say I’m really happy with how he turned out. It didn’t take me too long to paint him, and maybe it was just that I was working on other projects. But I got inspired to come back to him. What do you think?
