Well i think the blog needed a bit of an overhaul which i will be implementing and testing over the coming weeks. Im shifting the focus back primarily to my chaos, so i thought the blog should change too, 13 years of primarily khornate armies for chaos does have its influence.
Secindly my gaming group, the Border Princes is hosiing its 3rd proper tournament this december, and finally i have managed to book the time off work to attend.
As such my Chaos needs a few additions as all cavalry doesnt work as well in 8th edition. Here is the first list to build from below.
2500pts 'Downfall' Warriors of Chaos
Lord of Khorne: Axe of Swift Slaying, Shield, Dragonhelm, Stream of Corruption = 290pts Exalted of Khorne, BSB, Shield, Fury of the Blood God = 175pts Level 2 Chaos Sorcerer, Lore of Death, Biting Blade, Spell Familiar = 140pts 23 Warriors of Khorne, 2 Hand Weapons, Full Command = 428pts 40 Marauders of Khorne, GW's, Full Command = 250pts 2 x 5 Marauder Horsemen of Khorne, Flails, Light Armour, Musician and Champion = 2 x 118pts = 236pts 10 Warhounds = 60pts 5 Knights of Khorne, Full Command = 280pts 4 Ogres of Khorne, Great Weapons, Chaos Armour = 230pts 2 Hellcannons = 2 x 205pts = 410pts
Dwarf Lord on Shieldbearers. In my fluff Lord Morgrim Grundadrakk, Iron Lord of the Barak Varr Ironbreakers, second cousin of Kind Byrrnoth Grundadrakk.
Dwarf Thane on Oathstone. Unnamed in fluff as of yet, but usually goes with a 24 strong unit of Dwarf Warriors.

I have lately become bored with the point and click nature of my mounted Chaos Warriors army, so i have decided to go back to my Dwarfs for the time being until i get my Chaos infantry sorted.
Dwarf Lord: Great Axe, Shield, Shieldbearers, Rune of Resistance, Rune of Stone, Rune of Preservation, Master Rune of Spite, Rune of the Furnace, Rune of Warding = 289pts w/Ironbreakers Runesmith: Great Staff, Shield, 2 Runes of Spellbreaking, Rune of Warding, Rune of Stone = 146pts w/Warriors Thane, BSB, Master Rune of Grungni, Rune of Guarding, Rune of Courage = 200pts w/Longbeards
10 Thunderers = 140pts 10 Thunderers = 140pts 10 Quarrellers, Great Weapons, Shields, Veteran, Rangers = 160pts 19 Dwarf Warriors, Shields, Full Command = 196pts 19 Longbeards, Shields, Full Command, Rune of Sanctuary, Rune of Battle = 293pts
18 Ironbreakers, Full Command, Rune of Courage = 296pts Cannon, Rune of Forging = 125pts Cannon, Rune of Burning, Rune of Forging = 130pts
Well my Inquisitor and retinue is virtually built. I say retinue there are enough for a few diffrent builds depending on what role i use her for. Currently with the latest Inquisition rumours regarding the hopefully forthcoming Grey Knights i am holding off somewhat on buying my storm troopers, i have decided to focus for the short term on expanding the Ecclesiarchical side of my Witch Hunters, i have bought an Immolator/Rhino as well as the first box of Flagellents to convert into Zealots. I am planning a full unit of twenty with 2 flamers and 4 fanatics with Eviscerators for a grand total of 172 points, it will hit reasonably hard in combat with the eviscerators, and will act as a good meat shield or speed bump as required. Hopefully i will have some pictures up soon now i have my camera back.
1500pts Order of Our Martyred Lady: The Tighe Commandery
HQ: Canoness: Blessed Weapon, Bolt Pistol, Cloak of St Aspira, Book of St Lucius, Frag Grenades, Melta Bombs, Auspex = 109pts 6 Celestians: VCS, Eviscerator, Brazier of Holy Fire, Book of St Lucius, Flamer, Heavy Flamer = 146pts Rhino, Extra Armour = 50pts (IA2 Update) HQ: Priest, Eviscerator, Carapace Armour = 70pts with Repentia HQ: Priest, Shotgun, Carapace Armour = 46pts with Canoness and Celestians Troops: 10 Battle Sisters, VSS, Plasma Pistol, Book of St Lucius, 2 Storm Bolters = 144pts Troops: 10 Battle Sisters, VSS, Plasma Pistol, Book of St Lucius, 2 Meltaguns = 154pts Rhino, Extra Armour = 50pts Elites: 11 Repentia, Mistress = 250pts HS: Exorcist, Extra Armour = 150pts HS: Exorcist, Extra Armour = 150pts HS: 8 Retributors, VSS, Book of St Lucius, 3 Heavy Bolters, Multi-Melta = 177pts
Total = 1496pts
With the talk of Dark Eldar for autumn time on BoLS i will begin building my Kabal over the spring and summer. so i have a basis to develop from with the new codex and models. Therefore in the meantime i will expand my small SoB army with more inquisition troops and possibly Valks using the I as an airborne counter point to my foot/rhino SoBs
Well after numerous internet problems i finally have a partial service back. So i can finally update my blog.
The initial 2k WoC list i have been using has worked a treat. Especially the Warshrine, it has worked far better than i imagined that it would. Both in terms of the boost it gives to units as well as its physical presence.
Well now is the next decision which army shall i plan to build either the foot WoC, Infantry heavy Daemons or Beastmen for fantasy. Im still planning the non-imperial decision for 40k as well as redeveloping my Witchunters.
The first is a simple modification of the High Elf Lion Chariot, with both White Lions merged together into a Black, Two-Headed, Flaming Mutant Lion pulling the chariot base with a mound of skulls and an icon of Khorne with a Warrior made from Harry the Hammer with marauder horsemen arms and the classic Khorne Hero head.
The second is a more elaboarate idea based off the chassis for the screaming bell/plague furnace, with a spawn or two pulling the shrine and a similar skulls/icon to the first idea.
I will muse further on the design and try to post more detailed ideas/pictures.
