Update on Trollbloods

As of this moment, I am winning the Anomaly league at my local store by 9 points, which is all thanks to painting epic Madrak and the mounted version of Horthol.
Either way, I have placed an order with my local store for some Burrowers and a Fell Caller Hero. I also recently received Jarl Skuld, who I have yet to try out.

No idea if anyone is reading this, but so far pretty much every list of mine has included a Mauler, a Pyre Troll, an Axer (or Impaler), and full Fennblades with UA. Out of the warlocks I have (Borka, pMadrak, eMadrak, Gunnbjorn, pDoomshaper, and Jarl Skuld), the only one I have won many games with has been Borka, but that has mostly been due to people not checking their control area to see if Borka is in range for a charge, which they will now be doing. Anyone have any tips for playing Trollbloods with any of those warlocks?

New stuff.

While I was at work today, three packages were delivered for me.

Epic Madrak, Horthol, and prime Doomshaper. I cannot wait to get these models assembled, painted, and onto the table. This should also be the last big push I need (along with painting my Fennblades and Scouts) to win the local Anomaly league.

Update: All of the models are now assembled and ready for paint. Doomshaper came with old cards however, so it looks like I won't be playing him for a while.

Been a while.

After quite some time and even forgetting that I had this, I rediscovered it while going through my internet history. A few things have changed since the last time I posted. I am now the father of a small female human, done with what little college I had planned to do, and currently employed at a terrible job until I can find better employment. A few things have changed with my hobbies as well, as I now rarely play 40k (which is upsetting considering the amount of miniatures I own) and play Warmachine/Hordes quite often.

Shortly before the birth of my daughter, I picked up the Hordes 2 player box. After a few games of messing around with the two factions it contained, I decided that I didn't really enjoy either of them, so I traded the Legion of Everblight half for the Trollbloods starter set.

So far, I am thoroughly enjoying the Trollbloods and have about 60 points collected and about 50 painted. While I was hoping to say that 40k is the game where all of my pieces are painted, it's quickly looking like that will be Warmachine/Hordes.

Anyways, I shall continue to update this blog now that I have rediscovered it, hopefully with video battle reports and more pictures of miniatures.

And yes, I know that the base on Gunnbjorn looks like chocolate icing. I assure you, it's not. -_-
