Last of the TK Foot Units

Tonight I finished the last of my Tomb King foot units. First up is a block of 20 skellie warriors:

A couple Tomb Guard (not sure why I had 2 that didn't get painted with the rest):

The foot and mounted version of the Army Standard Bearer, although I'll probably never use him as the Tomb King army banners aren't worth it and why waste character points on a 'meh' character.

And lastly is this character that could be a Liche Priest or a Tomb Prince/King. This fig isn't GW but is from Crocodile Games, Wargods of Aegyptus line. It is a Harbinger of Khanum. I figured it would make a suitable Tomb King figure.

Next up is a group (squadron?) of 6 chariots. And after that will be a unit of 4 Carrion and that will be the last of my Tomb Kings. Well, until the new book comes out and they have something cool worth getting like a Sphinx or something.

This past weekend I had some friends over and we played a couple games of Rio Grande's Antike:

Pretty simple game but pretty fun. We played with 4 players but I'd like to try it with 6 players.

Finished 5 bases of Galatians/Celts last night. These are Warlord Games minis. These are the first 28mm I've used the 'magic dip' on. They turned out pretty decent. I've missed the odd highlight or two, but they decent for wargaming.

Next up is the last of my Tomb King foot units: a pile of skellie warriors, some characters and a couple tomb guard.

Played another game of Colosseum the other night. I've only played it with 3 players and am looking forward to playing with a bigger group (it can accommodate up to 5 players).

Some Phalangites

Finished a pair of phalangite bases yesterday. These are 1st Corps minis and have Little Big Men shield transfers.

The unit on the left is Antigonid phalangites and the one on the right is Seleucid phalangites. Not the greatest paint job I've done, the trousers on the Seleucid phalangites really didn't turn out like I wanted them too. I guess they're okay for wargame standards.

The next batch is more historicals: 5 bases of Galatians/Celts. I'm actually planning on using the 'magic dip' on these. I'm hoping this will speed up my painting on these so I can get them done in a reasonable amount of time.

On Saturday I introduced my friend Chris to Warhammer 8th edition. He had his grey and silver Horde of Chaos vs. my Tomb Kings. I ended up losing when his Daemon Prince got close enough to unleash a couple of spells on my Heirophant that obliterated him. A Chaos army is hard to deal with. He didn't have any marauders so everything had at least a T of 4 which rendered my shooting virtually useless. And in close combat if it wasn't for the fact he had a lot of Always Strike Last Great Weapons I would have got almost no hits in. And I think my Tomb Prince needs to be fired as yet again he missed almost every attack. Back to the boneyard for him! If I had one complaint about TK it would be that the attack incantation is utter crap versus every other attack spell.

I also got in a couple games of Colosseum by Days of Wonder.
It's a fun and rather fast game where players strive to put on bigger and bigger events and gain more and more spectators. Pretty good game with some nice components.

TIll next time.
