Anyone remember the carnival of chaos from Mordheim?
Really like that cart.
(link to more pics)
Never a fan, but a friend of mine got it, and I must say that it was a concept with style!
Those are some nice models!
I love the makeshift cart.
Mm, have the full warband from back in the day, love the two plague bearers from the set. Have everything but that damned cart, the thing is ungodly expensive, no matter where you look.
I remember the carnival. I was always a middenhiemer or sisters of Sigmar though
Oof, hated fighting the sisters. Damn steel whips. I basically just ran Cult of the Possessed and Carnival of Chaos, though I had a team of Skaven I used once in a blue moon.
you could probably remake your cult with frostgrave cultists now....
I've been reading a lot of medieval fantasy novels of late and I'm feeling quite Bretonnian at the moment...
I was never a big fan of Bretonnia or Empire personally. The only human army I liked are the WoC... if you can even classify them as human (I guess marauders would count as human).
Well Chaos Warriors certainly seem human so they should have just got 1 attack each. I can understand Saurus Warriors getting 2 attacks as they bite and stab, but Chaos Warriors don't have massive jaws, they just have a weapon each. They did Marauders right at least, giving them a competent yet not ridiculous profile.
Warriors are hardly human at this point. Super powered with the taint of chaos and having their armor fused with their bodies.
In the 7th edition WoC book, Marauders were way over powered. They were a far better value in comparison to Warriors. In 8th they were nerfed pretty bad, and were largely shelved by most WoC generals.
I totally understand though, they can be a bit... bland? Especially compared to the other fantastical races that populate the warhammer world.
That being said, the Adventures of Robin Hood (Errol Flynn) and Ivanhoe were some of my favorite movies as a kid, so the Bretonnians really scratch my itch as far as glorious medieval jousts are concerned.
Yeah the Brettonians look like 12th or 13th century troops, while The Empire is more Renaissance (16th century) stuff I guess.
I do like Knights as much as most people playing fantasy games, but.... meh. Compared to the other armies they just lack the fantasy part for me.
I did find this blog just now: Tides of War.
They had a great Bretonnian tournament!
It was from 2014, lots more great pictures on the site, plus some giant collections of historical miniatures.
Spoiler: more pics!
Makes me want to go make some more Bretonnian jousting terrain!
Hmmmm I also have an idea there....
Ok here it is. Just for laughs, it is just a 5 minute job:
My Necromancers decided to have some fun while raising undead on a graveyard.
That's awesome! Never seen an undead joust before!
They just don't stack up to the awesomeness that is my WoC, Lizardmen and Tomb Kings! (IN MY PERSONAL OPINION OF COURSE!). I like my Warhammer armies to be a bit more exotic.
Bleep yeah! Another Errol Flynn Robin Hood fan in the house! High five @Warden !
Honestly I find WoC Interesting because of all the different God's and then variations between warbands
