December 31, 2013 Posted by cranky

Chaos Nurgle Lord Craxus the Foul and the brutal Ork Warlord Garm Skullcrusha have a stand-off and epic confrontation in the middle for the push towards the heart of Thraxan capitol. The orks, seeing a string of victories pile up and momentum for a Waagh of their own, are beginning to interfere with the plans laid out by the Forces of Ruin. Lord Craxus begins to become concerned that the Ork forces are pushing too fast into the loyalist lines, creating an over-extension threat towards the campaign as well as threatening the Sleeping Daemon’s successful rite of wakening. The two warlords agree to parlay in the middle of the campaign to sort out their differences and realign the Orks to the larger goals of the campaign. Are the forces of Chaos successful in bringing the Ork forces to heel, or do the Orks gain more fury in their rampage towards the final destination of the Thraxian capitol?

Apocalypse Battles! 9/28/2013

September 28, 2013 Posted by cranky


I had the opportunity to watch a local gaming group (Neighborhood Waagh! on Facebook) hold a couple of Apocalypse battles here in Seattle this last weekend. I must say that it was pretty impressive! 8000 points a side, and one custom gaming table, bringing my son along (although he found a buddy playing iPad and immediately got sucked into watching the games he was playing). It was fun to watch a few hours of battle unfold for these guys. I’ve posted some pics of the two concurrent tables playing their battles.

My good friend Marc has been inspired to work on his 40k Ork army in preparation of the upcoming Apocalypse release. His Ork army is already huge. Inspiration to bigger his horde has resulted in an epic unboxing of all the miniatures, plus a focus on getting some big guns ready for the big event later this year – stompas! Check out the progression of getting all the Orks out and on display and the Stompa factory that has been kicked into overdrive this weekend!
