Gathering the Pups for Arizona

 With the last basing sand drying I finally finished up the final three warg pups. They were re purposed from the farmer maggot hounds. Added some tails and fur to hide the collars.

 These stand ins for wargs are not here for smaller targets or advantages, just got bored with stock warg models and had to switch it up.
The last item for Arizona's tournament is painting up that display board behind the dogs. Till next time.

Tale of Four Gamers: Completed!

So we come to it at last, the completion of our haggard army building story. As far as I know, I am the only 1/4 to finish in our 5 month period. So, after more time than I am used to in this army building, Here is the last bunch.

 These are most of the unique wargs, there a couple stock models as well as 3 of the farmer maggots dogs for warg pups. This is the paint scheme concept for some of the wargs, I wanted to have different ones just to break up the unity of 17 of them.

 Dwarf causes some indigestion.

 This brown scheme was again based on my old dog, just to vary the looks on the board. The two rubble bases are going on the inside of the display board. Helps spruce up the home decor of the mines!

So the final list for Arizona's Gathering in the Desert is

Cave Drake
10 Goblins with spear and bow
4 goblins with spear
2 goblins with shield and spear
20 goblins with Shield
1 bat swarm
17 wild wargs

With all the new buzz around new rule books by Gamesworkshop, I suspect most of our old lists will all have to be tweaked. And of course, I choose not to make all these wargs with goblin riders even though I could feel it in my bones that they would release a goblin warg raider....

Now that the army is finished, it is going to be lots of terrain work from here till April with the highly anticipated Adepticon convention looming.

Slow and Steady

So it has been awhile since my last update but here we go. First off, everything is right in the world again with the Patriots dominating win over the upstart Broncos and we are on track again for a Packers-Pats superbowl.

With that out of the way, we can get back to showing off some doggies. With my February 1st deadline fast approaching for finishing this army prep some serious building progress was made this last week.

 Dancing with wolves: these 2 goblins we trying a new stealth tactic against some dwarfs....
 Just playing fetch
The ole classic dog jumping on something pose: I am going for the cute, cuddly approach to these wargs.

These are only 3 obviously, but there are 21 more with about half converted up.

Check back February 1st for the conclusion of my 1/4 Tale of Four Gamers complete with hopefully a finished display board as well as a final recap of the army list before flying out to AZ for the Gathering in the Desert Indy Grand Tournament.

On the horizon is Adepticon and hinted in the past couple posts, there is a powerful terrain piece growing in the East.....
