It has been awhile since I've managed a post due to the holidays and the rush to prepare for Waaaghpaca! With the end times upon us I saw Paca's acceptance of the characters and army lists as a nice surprise. I wasn't planning on taking anything crazy at first until I started to think...what are the chances I'll ever get the chance to use End Times characters again? With that thought I decided I needed to bring an ET list and just go for it...
Grimgor Ironhide is the most bloodthirsty, violent and destructive of all the Black Orcs. If a single day went by without a battle, Grimgor was known to start camp-decimating arguments, his one good eye blazing with eagerness to find fault and start a good scrap. Two days without a battle and Grimgor would smite anything he could reach. No one knows for sure what would happen after three days, but even scarred veterans tremble just thinking about it. It is this unquenchable thirst for battle that has marked Grimgor as one of the most feared Orcs of all time - he is the harbinger of Gork and the destroyer of all that stands before him.
While the stock Grimgor model is ok, I wanted something which matched his artwork, and really conveyed him as the psychopath he is!

I moved into my new place in September, and I'm very lucky to have a big room that I can call my dedicated "geek room". The room is large enough for two sofas with a big coffee table for boardgaming, my painting desk, a couple of glass cabinets and, of course, a 6'x4' gaming table.
The only issue is that funds have been a little tight since we moved, so I've been stuck with my old folding 4'x4' board until I could find some cash to buy all the wood and supplies I needed for the new board...... then I had a bit of a "eureka" moment!
Why not build my board from pallet wood? It's free, readily available, strong, and looks really cool and rustic. Off I went.
I managed to turn this:
