Back with the Hobby, and Siege of Mount Bloodhorn

Hi there... It's been a while since my last posting. I had pretty big drawing project going on that had my full attention for three weeks, but now the deadline is reached and pictures ready for printing :) Now I'm planning on what minis to paint next. I have many good ideas, so it's hard to decide where to start.

Meanwhile, I'll post some older battle pics from the "Siege of Mount Bloodhorn", that we played few weeks ago. It was an season end game from our Blood in the Badlands campaign. It was played simultaneously with six players, on three different tables. Here's how the action looked like...

This is my defending force for the "Gates of Ekrund" scenario (2250pts). Infantry units are not all presented full size for there's no room on the fortress walls... I usually have ten models in a unit and mark the actual unit size and casualties on my armylist.

First action pics are from the "Bitterstone Mine" scenario, fought between Empire and Skavens. It was fought as "Battle for the Pass" with Underground rules. Winner would emerge on the Gates of Ekrund as relief forces, bringing all surviving models on the table.

Second pics are from "Stonemine Tower". It was played as a Watchtower scenario between Chaos Dwarfs and Wood Elves. Here also the winning, surviving models were moved to the Gates of Ekrund as relief forces.

And finally the "Gates of Ekrund" scenario. It was a normal siege scenario, except the relief forces were the survivors from other tables, so you didn't know if it was friend or foe coming :)


 Dwarf siege tower was burned down right away with "Flaming Ammuntion" siege equipment. Little clumsy dwarfs were running out of it, with their beards and asses on fire. It was like a 4th of July for the Greenskins...

Pump Wagons pumping themselves towards absurdly heavy dwarf artillery, that was dropping the greenskins down the fortress walls like flies. And my rocklobba sideways on top of the tower, not taking cover, but missfired...

Relief forces arrived in turn five... All friendly for the Orcs!!! Hooray! Woodies and Empire forces were all slayed on the slopes of Mount Bloodhorn.

As a last attempt, dwarf miners bravely entered the fortress... just to find themselves between a rock and a hard place. Giant jumped up and down, and thunder stomped them out of the game in one combat round. Splat! There was nothing left to chew for my Generals pet wyvern "Baity". And now all enemies were down...

The game was awesome, and we all had a great time. And of course the season ending victory for the Forces of Destruction tasted good! More Blood on the Badlands later... Bye now!
