Reven vs. Tembrithil

Recommended Posts

Gronkelfibbits rode nervously into position, unsure of these Elves his scouts reported.  His guards were quickly formed up into a battle line.  Nine orc swordsmen, nine orc spearmen, and two ogres moved into a line to protect their warlord.  Ombur and Gonda moved in the back ready to lend their magics to the battle.  Greka stayed near them, while the Hill Giant, Knuckles, moved to protect the left flank.  The right flank was the speed of Urga, with six beastmen, and Traeg, full of fury and ready to take the fight to the enemy.

 

These Elves approaching seemed different.  They had large Owlbears moving against both flanks!!   They had Satyr warriors mirroring the Reven Beastmen!!  They moved through the forest with ease, and brought archers to bear almost immediately.  

 

It all seemed so sudden as the Hunting Cats and Satyrs broke through the woods and were ready to lay waste to the Reven. The Elf archers were sapping the strength of the Orcs, and their Ogre support.  The Elf warlord unleashed chains of lightning and it seemed the Reven would not be able to muster a counterattack.

 

Magic was the key.  Gronkelfibbits and Mazak, with Reven ferocity, moved into position to cast a lightning bolt into the Elven ranks.  Greka cast Iron Skin onto Knuckles, and he swept up against the Satyrs.  Urga and his troop axed two Owlbears and some of the hunting cats.  Only Traeg survived to continue to harry the enemy but the Beastmen earned respect for their skill and bravery.

 

The attrition was terrible.  Ombur, Gonda, Greka, cut down.   It was Gronkelfibbits going toe to toe with the Elf warlord, in a climactic battle to the finish.  Both thought they had the other beat, but both fought on, until Knuckles finished the battle. Only an Elf sniper lived to skulk off, while the Reven took the field.  The losses were replaceable, as the Reven is a horde, and Gronkelfibbits and Mazak left to mend their wounds and continue their campaign for power.  

 

Great game, and a rare victory for me.  :)

It was a slug fest. The dice were not kind on either side of the table. But, the skilled combination of Greka and Knuckles (with the Iron Skin! Oy!) was too much for the elves to bear. Well fought, as always, Mr. Slater.

      I started painting these in 2007!  I had received two sets on clearance from a gaming website.
      I picked them up again briefly in 2011.
      I had just purchased a bunch of Vallejo Game Colors.
      I recently picked them up again to get them off the shelf of shame that they seemed to be permanent fixtures of.
      Sadly, the VGC Paints were not able to salvage.  One of them was more done than the others, so he looks a little different.
      The front right of the first picture.
      I finished them off quickly with Reaper paints.
       
      This was the first time I primed minis white, then built up layers of very thinned basecoats.
      It made these guys much brighter.
       
      Sorry some of the pics are out of focus.
       
      I am thinking to do the next set more black/red or more of a realistic lizard scheme.
      Enjoy.

      Another one off my shelf of shame, rebased years ago on what I think is a Micro Arts Studio base. 
       
      I was really trying to continue getting better at NMM, and was also trying to work some natural wolf colors onto the fur for more complexity.

      Here are some Reaper Warlord Necropolis faction zombies, painted up as swamp zombies in a speed paint for Ghost Archipelago.

      My wizard Malak and his apprentice Grubb for my Frostgrave team. The wizard is Xi-Han is from GCT's Bushido game and then his apprentice is Lunk.

      This guy came with a bigger mini that is supposed to be a mutated him that I'll need to paint some other time.

      Fairly happy with the hat and mushrooms and frog. should have doen something more for his mustache though. It looks ok in person at least.

      Not super happy with my snow base results this time.

      Grubb here might see action as his alter ego Lunk from time to time so his base is just a stone base.

      Most of their crew is done as well. I'll get a group shot when they are all done. (Including the replacements for my lone casualty in our first real game.)

      Hello folks, so sort of discovered the warlord game while browsing through the website and it has jumped out at me as something fairly interesting to jump into. More specifically after a tour of reaper HQ at reapercon and seeing some minitures, I did not relieze that there was a mini game attached to some of the ones I really liked the look of.
       
      However some of the newer factions from the savage north ones have no fluff about them on the website, more specifically the sisters of the blade. Can I get a possible faction rundown on the SN factions?
