Goffs vs. Freebootas

Recommended Posts

My son and I have been on a journey over the last nine months to play a campaign of Gorkamorka.  Why so long you ask?  Well, we decided that we really wanted to do it right and build terrain and mobs and vehicles from scratch.  Sure we could have just played with some of the terrain I already had and lord knows I have enough orks to play a game, or thirty, of gomo but we wanted something to do together.

 

We started by building a massive amount of terrain, WAY more than we could ever use on even four tables of gomo but we wanted variety and versatility.   That thread can be found here, very pic heavy.

 

After that was finished we started building mobs and playing games to get the rules down before we really start our campaign with our gaming group.  I have been starting project logs for a few of them, here are the Diggas where I built their trukk and the mob itself.  I have started painting them here but had to briefly put them on hold to build another mob for a test game coming up soon.  That trukk and mob build can be found here, they are the Goffs and they are proud of it.

 

This is probably our twelfth game or so, we are really starting to get the rules down and games are much quicker than our first couple.  It had been a solid twelve or more years since I had played a game but once we started most of the rules came right back.  This game took us less than an hour total, that was from table set up to post game book keeping.  Granted this was a very quick and non bloody game so that helped quite a bit.

 

Alright, here we go...3...2...1....

 

The dessert spread out far and wide before Gorbad and crew as they hurtled across the sand in their brand new trukk, it had only been crashed once before the meks sold it to him for only twenty teef.  Pretty good deal since the mek had originally said he couldn't sell it for less than twenty-two.  Gorbad smiled to himself, he had some hagglin' skills to rival a Deathskull, that was for sure.  Sweat rolled into his eyes causing him to snap back to the moment as he wiped the sting from his eyes and the sand from his face.  Overhead the sun beat down as relentlessly as ever, it was early day but the temp was already climbing to almost unbearable even for an ork such as himself.  There was never a moment of respite on this world he thought.  All the hardship,fighting and scraping was good for his lads though, gave them something to do and kept the yoofs out of trouble.

 

Gorbad was snapped back to reality again as Grimgut, the new spanner and driver of the new trukk, was screaming something that he couldn't hear over the roar of the centrally mounted engine.  Grimgut was now frantically pointing in the direction they were headed.

 

Before Gorbad could turn to see what was out there Snazbad, the new yoof of the mob, was frantically tugging on his arm.

 

"Wat!?!" bellowed Gorbad at the light green yoof.

 

"Boss, I seez somethin'!", Snazbad was also pointing in the direction they were headed.

 

Sneering at the yoof but holding off from smackin' him across the back of his skull for fear of finding a soft spot Gorbad was finally able to turn his attention to the desert in front of them.

 

A large ramp down into the skid could be seen and right at the bottom of it, some no good stinkin' Freebootas!

 

A  smile crept onto Gorbad's face, "Hit the Red Button! he screamed at Grimgut.

 

The trukk bounced across the rough desert ground and all the boyz roared in their excitement.

 

(Here are a couple shots of the terrain we are playing over before anything was deployed.)

Those git Freebootas was caught out in da desert diggin' scrap like a bunch a grots thought Gorbad, his smile gettin' bigger, and more full of sand by the second.

 

The thunderous roar of his new trukk and boyz musta scared them no good Freebootas, before Gorbad and 'is boyz could get to 'em and give 'em a good whoopin' they was in they trukk and tryin' ta get away.  Their good for nothin' bad mek was behind the controls of the vehicle and hittin' the Big Red Button before he even had the gas engine started!  Their vehicle lurched ahead straight toward The Last Rock forcing their mek to slam on the breaks.

 

Gorbad was yellin' for Grimgut to t-bone them but somehow over the roar of the engine his message was lost and the new spanner skid stopped the trukk sideways, headed straight for the side of the cliff.

 

20170517_122836_zpsx3lliqkp.jpg

 

Both mobs crammed to the sides of their trukks facing the other mob and let loose with every ranged weapon they could bring to bare.

 

20170517_122846_zpsrm5l5qat.jpg

 

The bad mek, still without his gas engine started, was smooshing the Big Red Button nonstop!  In an amazing turn of luck all this accomplished was that the low ridin' git wagon spun 'round and faced almost straight at the center of a large dune of soft sand.

 

20170517_123020_zpssjhzgoak.jpg

 

Gorbad saw that this was the moment he needed and once again he yelled for Grimgut to ram the stinkin' Freebootas while they were in a bad position.

 

The spanner must have heard this time as he skillfully turned the new trukk 'round the right way and Gorbad could hear the thrusters begin to whine up, the vehicle lurched forward and then stopped.

 

Gorbad, once again, whirled to see what the new spanner was doin' only to see him pulling out a hammer and beatin' on the Red Button....he must not be strong enough to push it he thought.  He ducked just in time as he saw Zogstruk, the new gunner of the new trukk, fire the harpoon gun at the enemy.  He wrenched his head around just in time to see the massive harpoon glance off the engine and stick in the sand.

 

Then the roar of weapon fire was deafening as once more both mobs opened fire with everything they could.

 

Gorbad's heart jumped in his chest as he saw the Kaptin' fall face first from their low ridin' trukk.

 

20170517_124112_zpsh8aw1fyh.jpg

 

His joy didn't last any longer than a few quick heartbeats as the tough old git crawled back into da trukk, the bad mek started his gas engine and tore off across the desert, followed by blasts from their thrusters taking them almost out of range to even think about chasing after them.

 

20170517_124509_zpshqunlitk.jpg

 

Gorbad screamed at Grimgut to give her everything she had and catch up to them before they were too far away.

 

The spanner revved the gas engine, threw it into gear, spun the vehicle around to give chase and mashed the Red Button only to loose control and skid to a stop facing the cliff and a tank trap.

 

20170517_124632_zpsf4kphgxn.jpg

 

Gorbad watched as the no good Freebootin' gits sped off out of sight with a trukk full of scrap....

 

20170517_124847_zpseysottni.jpg

 

Needless to say, I(Gorbad and the goffs) did not win this one.  My son did exactly what he had to do to win, get off the table with the most scrap, and win he did.  It was a fun, funny, orky game, full of awesomely horrible dice rolls for both of us.  However, in a game like this sometimes that will actually make for a much more entertaining game.

 

Gorbad, his back against the side of the armored crew compartment, slid down until his bottom was on the bed of his new trukk.  He began fumblin' through his cigar pouch searching for the only thing that may help him feel a little better about his life choices at the moment.  At last he found it, the last stump of his last cigar.  He brought it to his mouth and began searchin' for his lighter in his chest pocket.  He found it, quickly pulled it out, struck it and nothing happened.  Gorbad looked at the heavy, metal lighter and saw that it had caught a bullet, at least he could rely on someone in his mob he thought before he roared and threw it at Snazbad, hitting him behind his right ear.  The yoof crumpled like a grot under a slavers whip.

 

Gorbad and the other boyz roared in laughter.

 

Hope you enjoyed it as much as we did...

Alright, time to do my side of the Battle Report from the Goffs vs. Freebooters. Like the Big guy said, Chaoshead, we had worked long and hard on the terrain and now we are starting to work on the mobs. We wanted our desert to be just right, with the right amount of proppa mixed in as well. I am not as Orky as Chaoshead, but i am slowly growing into it.

 

Anyways! enough gabbin'! lets get to da foightin'!

 

The hot, early, sun was already heating the desert up for another long day for the Freebooters. Kaptin Wurzag and a few of his Boyz were digging in the sand for some scrap. They had already uncovered a few pieces that were stickin' out of the ground. Wurzag and da Bad Mek Boltmuncha were digging much less than Azukk and Zogbomb, the two boyz. The Kaptin stood up from digging in the sand to light his pipe that he was chewing on. When he started to hear something... Muties? No... Diggas..... maybe but this sound was louder. Wurzag looked up at the cliff and saw a truck full of Goffs up on the slope.

 

"Grab da scrap yooz can carry Lads, and get to da Trukk!!" Wurzag screamed at the Boyz and Mek as he grabbed scrap and started running for the truck.

Boltmuncha looked up to see what was going on and saw the Goffs up on the slope. He too grabbed some scrap and headed for the Trukk. Azukk and Zogbomb following close behind.

 

(This is how we set the board up, both of us really liked how it was set up and looked.)

20170517_120232_zpsuj1k7e1g.jpg

 

(Now where we put our trukks and boyz was deffinitly very cool. The cliff slope and right beneath it was My Trukk and Boyz.)

(Me Freebooters!)

(Da stinkin' loud moufed Goffs)

 

20170517_122844_zpsyni71u1v.jpg

 

Wurzag and the boyz threw the scrap in the trukk before hopping in, just as Boltmuncha slammed his fist on the Big Red Button and began to speed off with nothing but thrusters. Wurzag, Azukk and Zogbomb all opened fire on the Goff trukk with their Snazzgunz. As Azukk was firing, his gun jammed, but he realized... it wasn't a jam. He was out of ammo! Not thinking he would need to bring more he just loaded one mag into da Snazzgun. Wurzag and Zogbomb kept firing at the Goffs, in a hope to drive them off with just sheer firepower. The Goffs sped after Wurzag and his crew and seemed to have a new... or a really bad driver. They spun sideways and they all pressed up against the side of the vehicle to shoot at the low ridding Trukk of the Freebooters.

 

20170517_123042_zpsly7aebrw.jpg

 

Then Boltmuncha thought it was a good idea to disobey the Kaptin and turn the Trukk to face the other way. "What yoo doin' ya git!? We need to go dat way!" Wurzag yelled at Boltmuncha, pointing in the opposite way from where the Mek turned.

"I fink it is betta to go dis way Kaptin!" The Mek replied with a loud yell over the loud thrusters.

"Yoo betta be roight!" Wurzag and Zogbomb continue to litter the Goff Trukk with hot lead, as the Goffs turn to power straight at Da Low Ridda. Yet again the Goffs Driver or a bad Trukk stop just short of ramming into the back of Da Low Ridder.

 

20170517_123617_zpsoftkpqzb.jpg

 

20170517_124050_zps7dnqjhwe.jpg

 

Then, almost out of nowhere, Wurzag takes a bullet and falls off the Trukk. Being a tough git, he crawled back onto Da Low Ridda and Screamed. "Get out of 'ere!" As he said that the gas engines finally started and Bolt muncha sped away from the Goffs Trukk. He kept mashing the Red Button and they left a dust cloud in their wake.

20170517_124532_zpsiwkkiaex.jpg

 

The Goffs new driver tried to speed after them and again spun their Trukk. A Harpoon flying just over Boltmuncha's 'ead as the Goffs wanted the scrap in Da Low Ridda.

 

20170517_124634_zpsift49cm5.jpg

 

20170517_124900_zpsreuqzncu_1.jpg

 

With The scrap and Wurzag back on his feet from a bullet wound, Da Low Ridda speeds off into the sandy wastes. With scrap and teef to come, Wurzag produces a big toothy grin as he finally lights his pipe. "Dat was easea den i thought! Hahaha! Do'es shtinkin' Goffs fink dey can take me teef away from me and me boyz! HA! Den dey need to fink more!" Wurzag took a big breath from his pipe and puffed the smoke out, producing another toothy grin.

 

Das it ya gits! It was a very fun, proppa and dusty scenario, but in da end... me freebooterz showed up dem shtinkin' Goffs! Hahahahahaha! This game was very fun and both me and the big guy had a lot of fun and laughs as we laughed at our horrible roles. XD it was a great game and now we have another game under our belt! it was a very fun and great game! Gramatical errors may be present... not really sure. XD Have fun with this and until next time!

      December has only just begun but this year's ornament is already finished. Unlike previous years I decided to wait until the piece was finished rather than run a WIP thread. With the little one being a lot more involved this year it certainly made things easier. Our daily progress was also lower too as you can only keep a two and a half year olds attention for so long.
       
      Starting out I knew I wanted the little one to be more involved this year. Plus she's certainly been showing more and more interest in what I've been doing at my desk lately. With a bit of thinking and planning (something we all know I usually avoid) I came up with a concept that would give her a lot of "big" areas to paint unlike my other ornaments which were just little figures that require "precision".
      That's right I really did plan this build. As you can see I'm no artist but it does show off the concept. My plan was simple enough, I'd build a small rooftop complete with a "Santa" that would fit inside an ornamental bulb. 
       
      Using plasticard I made a roof and chimney that fit snugly inside the bottom/lid of the ornament. I added the appearance and texture of bricks to the chimney using thin squares of cardboard. For the figure itself I simply used a GW necron I had leftover from an earlier project and with some greenstuff I sculpted a hat and toy sack. Lastly I covered the lid with masking tape and primed it.

       
      Once it was primed and ready for paint I could finally get the kid involved. With a bit of brush assistance from myself we quickly found our rhythm and started painting together. Unfortunately there are not a lot of progress shots. Most days I just completely forgot to take one and on others the little one was just so excited to keep going. I did get one after we finished the chimney's basecoat however. 

       
      After that we painted the roof, the toy bag, the red portion of the hat, and the silver metallic. The white of the hat I did myself at one point while she napped.
       
      So far she had really been enjoying the project and seemed to like painting together but I was not prepared for how much she loved applying the wash. I'm not sure what it was but she really liked splashing the dark wash over everything. I guess dirtying up a model is just satisfying.
       
      After that we applied a little drybrush to the bricks. Everything was nearly finished but the fine details remained, so alone I quickly painted the eyes, chest, and the Christmas lights. After applying a bit of snow flock our ornament was complete.

      In retrospect the "lights" were a little too close together on the back, but as it only truly obscured my name it wasn't worth redoing.
       
      We put the bulb back together and hung it on the tree. I think it doesn't look too bad. It's certainly an improvement over the previous years, almost as if my skills have improved.

      Happy holidays everyone.

      At the moment I'm not exactly starved for projects (I've actually got a long list taped to my desk), but what I really wanted was something quick and easy. Luckily one of the projects on that list fit the bill perfectly so my third Imperial Guard joke squad has started. 
       
      Unlike my "Fabulous" squad or even my Tau defectors this is a more nuanced joke. Instead of painting battle hardened Cadiens I'll be painting a squad of the Planetary Defense Force. GW lore is a funny thing whenever comparisons are made as any player can tell you. So while the Imperial Guard especially the Cadiens are "elite" warriors completely at home on the battlefield the Planetary Defense Forces are easily killed cannon fodder living the cushy good life on Imperial worlds. The PDF act as peacekeepers and the first line of defense during any attack and they usually end up dying in droves (not unlike the actual Guard). 
       
      The only real difference at least on the actual tabletop will come down to color scheme. I've decided a peacekeeper's color scheme would work well and I've come up with two options. 
      I think I prefer the blue tunic with the grey armor, but the reverse could work too. I figure I'll just sleep on it and decide tomorrow with fresh eyes, but I'm open to any thoughts/ideas.

      I painted some minis from the Kill Team: Rogue Trader box. They are originally a nurglish warband called the Gellerpox Infected, but I will use them in my Swampstalkers army for Kings of War.
      The second line in the big unit is made of Titan Forge ogre pirates mixed with parts of the Reaper's Crab Man (SKU:44110). They are all now Butchers, and they also have the dedicated hero for them (Fleshripper, one with the cleaver ). Smaller guys are Horrors, wizards in my army.

      I painted this GW's Lord of Plagues as a hero for my Swampstalkers. He is now the Swamp Drinker, one of the Reapers  (the unit I showed recently).
       

       
      And this Morphus from the (unfortunately) defunct Enigma Models was actually painted few years ago. I found him in my display cabinet and though he would make for a nice Swamp Hunter, another hero for my army.  So, here he is, with just a new base 
       

    • By Nameless
      I bought these 16 converted nurgle warriors for my Swampstalkers army and added two Reaper minis (battleguard golem 77169 and Anval Thricedamned, Evil Warrior 77055) to get 3 bases with 6 warriors each.
