Acquired the most macho glue gun in the entire world today.

It worked out at less than £7 with 10 sticks so I can't complain its designed for papercrafters who are mostly young girls but it'll do the light jobs I want it for!

Da fleet has won the game. Massing together and lots of luck and point blank firepower crippled most of my enemies fleet before they disengaged. I did lose most of my escorts but only received a few scratches on the capital ships. Discussing the rules and gaming has produced two fleets I want to try one swops all the escorts out for two Hammer class Battlekroozers. The other retains the escorts but swaps them for Ravagers and Brutes. The Ravagers certainly did me proud in the last game. But given the amount of resources it will require to make these I'll just get a start on both fleets.......

Finished the first of the new lot a while back only got round to posting it today. The first Hammer and the second Ravager are both well on their way to being done as well. I'm also going to bodge together a pair of Kroozers for the correct armament Kill Kroozer and Terror Ship. The Space Hulk will be on the back burner for quite a while due to possibly starting a new job with a long commute on Monday.

I've got another Ravager done

But the star of this update is definitely the first of my two Hammers. This one's mainly bits of random toy especially gunz and the head thingy based around a Ramshackle Games Cab. I like the look as it resembles some of the art work and also resembles a Terror Fish which appeals to my love of Gerry Anderson. Both of these Hammer Classes I imagine being referred to as either the Hammer of Gork or Mork and a giant constant scrap with the crew fighting over it all the time. I imagine failed leadership tests are when the contest gets out of hand......

First the regular stuff. I've got a pair of Escorts finished.


Now for something a bit more special.

It's my second scratchbuilt Hammer class Kroozer the Hammer uv Mork or Gork. This one is vaguely more traditional than the first but makes up for that by being a good bit bigger.

And now for something of Epic Importance

My gaming groups been picking up the Net Epic rules found here http://www.netepic.org/. I therefore decided to bring this group back from home. They were painted ages ago but should make a good starter for a large force. I've won several lots of infantry and vehicles on Ebay and thanks to the generosity of my friend Rykk I've got a rather substantial force to be getting on with. These should provide something new and interesting to play with it'll also give me a painted ork force for every 40k based game GW does which'll be great for campaign play!

Its kind of sad. Epic was all about huge tank battles and large war machines. 40k has more or less become Epic, just with larger minis. Larger armies, more tanks, etc. No wonder they killed it.

Goresaw I'd have to agree although Epic still allows far more game in a sensible space than 40k.

It's a Compleat Llamahead post ever that means I have something new going up on all 4 blogs.
Check out the Conclave of Hrin (http://www.dakkadakka.com/dakkaforum/posts/list/279068.page), the 24th Islandlwanda (http://www.dakkadakka.com/dakkaforum/posts/list/252579.page) and the Nurgle Beastmen (http://www.dakkadakka.com/dakkaforum/posts/list/120/231101.page) for more.

I've got the alternative Kroozers done this'll give me 6. I made them as I feel keeping all my Ordnance on the Carriers and Guns on the Kill Kroozers gave me a more optimised fleet.
This is the Terror Ship based around a pipe and some bits and bobs giving a rather utilitarian shape. I think it's the weakest so far

This involved some very random bits mostly spare parts from a Star Wars Kit and some 80's toy parts. It's odd as in many ways its the most futuristic ship but it looks sort of like a sailing ship as well.


I've also decided to use washers below the hex bases to give me a weighted circular base. On the gaming front I got massacared twice recently. I do however like the Hammers and might instead drop the Roks and use them with the Escorts instead.

I've also painted up a bunch of Epic Orks which I'll photograph as I complete cards. So the first completed unit is this Shokk Attack Gun Battery. I've gone for urban bases and decided to paint everything with a Deathsull theme including Kults of Speed and over Clan specific troops as I like the idea more than the traditional exploding paint factory scheme.

Loving all the latest stuff! I used to have an Epic Ork army too - I think it's where my fondness for Ork warmachines started.

You're annoying me, mate - you're churning out lots of cool ships at a very fast rate! I wish I could be that productive!

You should think about posting up a short battle report the next time you play, would be cool to see some action shots.

Will do. To be honest part of the reason for the pace is an upcoming tournament. The other reason is unemployment (I work on short term temporary contracts so I have gaps with very little to do).

Here's my first Deathskull Warband. All the Orkz will be painted in this style regardless of which warband they're with.

I've also been converting up some stuff mainly Mekboy Speedstas, a battlefortress and some Battlewagons. As well as that I've been buying lots of stuff on Ebay including some old Stomper sprues. What are the Imperial vehicles especially the one that looks like the Contemptor Dreadnaught and the tiny Warhoundish looking one mean't to be?

Well the Nationals happened and Sheffield won yet again which means next year I'm helping to run it. I played 5 great games of BFG and won 1. I'm rubbish at names so won't mention anybodys. My fleet was 2 Hammers, 2 Kill Kroozers, 2 Terror Ships and 6 Ravagers
* Space Marines
This was the eventually winner and a bloke I've been playing for 8 years regularly without being beaten and yet again I lost simply put he got the pounce and his massed Space Marine escorts blasted apart several ships. I didn't focus fire enough and he isolated several single ships. The scenario involved capturing the admirals he caught mine so I rescued him and then he was caught again.
*Tyranids
This was against a really nicely converted fleet. It was an escalating engagement and I was lucky with both my Hammers coming behind the Hive Fleets. Tyranids also have to get close which helped me a lot. My opponent also suffered from losing a Hive Fleet to a Warp Rift. I won this one closely.
*Tau
I took no damage in this game but lost. The entirety of the centre of the board was an asteroid belt and with all my cruisers on Ld5 I decided to go around. This mean't I never engaged the body of the Tau Fleet. The objective was found by him and so he won. I did however get to watch a Protector cripple itself inside the field and drove off another.
*Imperials
This game was against a Nova Cannon Fleet. It also had a Blackstone Fortress in the middle. I didn't actually fight my opponent but instead took so much damage from long range shots and the explosion when I destroyed the fortress that I had to disengage without closing with the foe.
*Chaos
This game involved a star blowing up. It was an interesting scenario with a fun random table. We however kept rolling Gravitic Anomalys which meant my fleet kept getting dragged back rather than closing with the foe. This allowed the planet killer to blow up my fleet one ship at a time and I failed to accomplish anything.
In both of the last two games I also had a Cruiser crippled in the first turns firing.

What did I learn?
Orks need to close and work best in the centre of the Table with two scenarios which interfered with it I had trouble. The fleet list was about as good as it could be. The Orks problem is that they are close ranged and vulnerable. To get both broadsides working most Imperial/Chaos ships need to be in 30 the Orks need to be within 15 and have a maximum of 10 firepower which isn't much. Also they rely on hull points not shields which means they take damage far more easily the extra power field upgrade could have been a good idea. Another factor is that getting the first blow in BFG is vital and Orks find that very hard. What I need to do is focus my fleet and keep it together and aim it to come at the stern or hit one element of my opponents force. Possibly massing my fleet as I did made me far too easy to predict as well.

I'm looking forward to a few more games........But at the moment I'm going to focus on Epic for a bit.

Sometimes you just need to smash the scum. I did some mild converting beefing up the CCW and adding the Warlord Head the gunz got fiddled about a bit more to give me some fun options than anything else. I've also got Snakebite and Goff warbands painted up.

Fair enough mate.

Here's another of my Gargants a small basic Slasher using the most recent Epic Gargant model. I used another Warlord head (both of mine are joining Da Waagh so....). This was combined with a Warlord Mega Cannon for the Slasha Attack Gun while one of the regular Belly Guns was fine for that. The Ripper Fist is a Nob Spike Arm with plastruct stuff and a couple of Battlewagon Turrets. This is actually the Gargant I plan on using most often as it's cheap and simple to use. Both the Mekboy Gargant and the Mega Gargant strike me as fairly complex....


I've also got a squadron of Bowelburna's done. These old Epic vehicles are a great idea for the basis of 40k conversions. The third one is an Epic Battlewagon bodge as these are purchased in groups of 3 and if you buy Epic Ork models on Ebay you end up with loads of them.

He'd be the first to tell you to stop puling and start planning. Because what we are doing-at risk to ourselves-is what we have sworn to do. The West relies on us. It is a risk we take with pride.

Got my Spleenrippa's done really fond of these. Might have to make myself a 40k version someday. Really something to make you miss the old Vehicle Design Rules

Heres the second looted Warlord as well it uses far more Ork Gargant bits.


I've also wrote up some background for the fleet may as well bung it up here with pictures.

Da Fleet uv da Verminator
Da Deff Fish Lost Count
Da Deff Fish Lost Count was a replacement for the Deff Fish Many, which was a replacement for the Deff Fish Lotz, which was a replacement for the Deff Fish Sevral which replaced da Deff Fish Arf’Dozen which was a replacement for da Deff Fish dis is getin Ridickulus. An ‘Ammer Class it has ded good guns and a bad habit of getting lost in da Warp which is good fer meetin new life forms and fightin dem.

Da Hamma’ uv da Waagh
This is anuvva Hamma’ class Kroozer the Kaptin Snikpanzee Skumdakka genrally follows da Verminator as ‘e’s got a gud idea uv where da best fightin is and genrally can provide loads uv gubbins for is mech boys to fix da dentz. Last seen idly driftin away from a Super Nova Da Hamma will probably turn up eventually.

Da Waaghfarer
Dis ship was originally captured on one of the Deff Fish’s saunters through an alternate realetee. Originally it had ded good long range missiles but dey’ve all been fired at random planets. Dee humies on board sounded right posh and didn’t look much like da Emperor’s boyz at all. Dis wun actually left da Supenova and arrived back at da bass world unda it’s own steam. It be a Terror Class

Da Bismork Manee
Dis ship be anuvva Terror Kroozer based on an ole Imperial Transport what da Verminator snagged from da original ownas it has the least gud reputation uv any ov da ships in da fleet.

Da Orkerprise
On anuvva of da Deff Ships meanders through da Warp it ended up meetin des craft. Da ship tellyported sum lads ova who tried ta kommunikate wiv dem. Den da weerd panzee boy wot wuz leadin dees red shirted umies wot wuz relly easy ta shoot annoyin dat meant dere weren’t enuff ta crump propa. Anywey dis panzee pulld da vees sign on da Verminator an ‘e wasn’t havin dat so he decided ta crump dem an nick da ship. Da Kaptin ov it was a roight scary purve kept on lookin fer green gurlz.

Da Viktoree
Dis was niked ov an Ork wiv funnee idees wot ‘e wanted ta do was mimick dem panzee gitz although why any gud Ork would wanna run about and chicken out like dat be beyond me. Cov he was an idiot da Verminator nicked it uv him. He efen left da key inda ignition!

Uvva Boats
Every now an den some uvva Kroozers might turn up an some pirate ladz often join in da fun with dere liddle boats. Da Torpedodoers and Rokkitteers in dere Ravagers are most likely. Evry now an den in da Mabb nebula sum uv da locals join in on dere Roks.

Got a quick tip first. The Gnoblar crew in the Ironblaster kit would make some excellent grot riggers. There liable to be cheap as there not necessary in half of the models made from that kit anyway.

But back to Epic. These are my Battlefortresses.

From left to right you've got
#Brutal version made from the rear tracks of the Wartrak kit with a bit of Plastic/Card bodging to give a cab and 3 Epic turrets to provide Dakka.
#A Gibletgrinda as is
# 2 Skullhammas with variant turrets mainly to free up the originals for some more random conversions
#One based of the rear unit of a 2nd Ed plastic warbike given a rawl plug and straw chimney a bit more bulk and a couple of turrets.
