The Wild Hunt-Mage Lord on.... is that a.... Unicorn?

".... what does that do?" tends to be the first question I hear in my tournament games. The answer is always the same. "Gets shot by cannonballs."

Riders of the Dead- The Tsarina (WIP)

Work on the Kislev continues, this time on Tsarina Katarina, the Ice Queen of Kislev.

Sorry for the picture heavy post!

It's a pretty extensive conversion but I wanted to keep as many aspects of the original (ugly mo-fo) model as possible. To that end, I removed the crown, sword and staff from the original and added these to the Vampiress from the Coven Throne.

Riders of the Dead- The Beginning...

In the last couple of weeks I've started a new project completely, a Kislev army.

That's right- just in time for them being wiped out by the End Times. Surely there must be a few survivors though?

I thought I'd post up a picture of what I've been working on so far- the first Ungol.

I decided to use a Marauder Horseman steed, as they are so much more dynamic than the old Empire horses. De-chaosified you cant even tell he started life as an evil pony! The tattered, ragged saddle/barding suits the Ungol look perfectly too.


The Kin-Slaver Tribe- Jon's Ogre Army

The Kin-Slaver Tribe

There are many Ogre myths told to young ogre whelps throughout the Mountains of Mourn. Many are fanciful in nature, telling of Ogre heroes eating entire mountains, or legendary Hunters taking down an entire herds of stonehorn single handed. There are some stories, however, whispered around campfires on the coldest of nights, that are all too true; and even the Ogre’s feel the faintest shiver of fear at their telling.
In years past, one tribe of Ogres dwelt at the base of the mountains, on the edge of the Plains of Zharr. This close proximity to Zharr Nagrund led to a number of bloody encounters with the Chaos Dwarfs, with many Ogres dragged away in chains to serve their new masters, or to be thrown into the blazing furnaces as tributes to Hashut. These raids all but wiped out the tribe, until one foresighted Ogre sought to forge a deal with the Dwarfs. The tribe led a desperate night assault on a neighbouring group of Ogres, capturing many of their kin, knocking them senseless, and dragging them on a long march across the waste to the gates of Zharr Nagrund itself. Here they waited, until the colossal gates of the city opened, and out marched the Infernal Guard accompanied by a Sorcerer Prophet of Hashut.
Little is known of the ensuing negotiation, but Ogres are not renowned for their ability to bargain. Ultimately, the Ogres turned to march home, but each wore a new red hot brand on their shoulder, the mark of their bargain with the servants of Hashut, and the bellowing screams of their sacrificed kin could be heard for miles around.
The tribe continue to lead raids into the mountains, attacking smaller tribes in order to capture more slaves for their Chaotic masters. Over many years, they have become known to other tribes as the Kin-Slavers, and the gifts of the Chaos Dwarfs have been many and great. Rumour has it, some of the Dawi Zharr now even accompany the Ogres to maintain the enormous demon-machines gifted to the tribe, and the Ogres wear armour forged in the furnaces of Zharr Naggrund. Some even speak of enormous demonic machines in the shape of Rhinox, ridden by some Ogre’s, but this must surely only be a myth.

Meet Jon Kerr!

Hey guys,

Some of you might recognise me as the creator of TaleOfFourGeeks.co.uk.
T4G was once an upstart podcast, vidcast and blog, but over time priorities change and unfortunately the T4G podcast has slowly died. As a result, interest in the blog has waned, despite some really good content from a range of contributors. It's time to close it down for the foreseeable future. The site itself will endure, to give me somewhere to host my videos and any rules/campaign packs that I write, but the old blog will direct people here.

I recently approached Rodge to ask if I could become a Magnificent Bastards contribute and he's kindly agreed, so here I am! I'm very glad (and proud!) to be here in such esteemed company!



So, a little about myself....

Alarielle for Merry Mayhem


Twas the month before (Merry) Mayhem and across the hobby mat,
the green stuff was bending and the paint brush went splat. 
I in my glowing snow hat had dreams,
that Alarielle the radiant cast dwellers and beams.
