Hello Everyone

Thanks for coming down to this little corner of the net that is dedicated to the passion that binds us together: Warhammer...a hobby that continues to be enjoyed by hordes of us around the world.

Our 2nd picture of the new batch of photos features a new bunch on models: WT's lizardmen, painted by the folks at Guess it's quite a change from seeing mostly humans/chaos/elves on this blog after all! The colour scheme was chosen by WT and faithfully applied onto the lizardmen models by the dudes in Sri Lanka. Paintedfigs is a good place to go for Chaos and Lizardmen models (from our experience so far)

The Lizardmen of Lustria are a race of humanoid reptilians who have a history that stretches far back into the dawn of the warhammer world. The godlike Old Ones had arrived onto the world through their interstellar travels, and they proceeded to shape the world and create the races who inhabit the world presently (and actually eliminate 'unwanted races'). Also, some Slann had travelled with the Old Ones, and the Old Ones enslaved various amphibious species to serve the Slann(explaining the high status afforded to the Slann). Eventually, the Slann and the enslaved species were collectively known as the Lizardmen, a mighty empire that was entrusted by the Old Ones to combat the infernal realm of Chaos.

Bred for the sole purpose of combat, the Saurus warriors pictured here are one of the meanest infantry one can meet in combat. Saurus warriors have proven to be pretty ferocious in combat, being able to take and deal great amounts of damage, and yet are limited to melee weapons due to the their primitive brains that are incapable of using more complicated weaponry vs. a simple mace. Interestingly, they have very long lives and will continue to grow more scales as they get older...thus rendering old Saurus warriors almost 'unkillable'. Believe it or not, the Saurus do not even die of old age. Wow.

New Pictures: HE vs. Chaos

Hello Everyone!

Thanks to JQ for posting 2 pretty deep posts about the Warhammer hobby and for the responses we've been getting. Well, Warhammer for some reason is an expensive hobby and continues to enjoy passionate support through its years. JQ has kindly posted up recent photos we have taken with the assistance of WT, and we hope the results prove to be tasteful.

For today, we have confrontation on our minds, as a lone White Elf (painted by WT) faces off with an unholy coterie of Khorne warriors, some of the most fearsome adversaries one can ever meet in Warhammer.

The High Elves (Asur) are a race who are very familiar with Chaos, as their bitter history of mutual hatred and battle stretched back into the ancient times...when the elves had ventured into the highest forms of magic, an undertaking that had rendered much turmoil in the Old World in the wake of their exploration of such power.

The elves (from experience) are an elite army that hit really really hard and fast, have great command of magic, and are kinda undone by low numbers and toughness (don't see a lot of ripped elves around). Somewhat similar to the elves, Khorne warriors are infamous for their fighting prowess, such as magic resistance, insane strength, weapon skill, armor...etc. and are also one up on endurance. Yet, Khorne's followers have rejected magic (except magical weapons) from their ranks, since it insults the presence of Khorne. Some commanders have used guile and strategy to utilize tactics, such as magic and ranged warfare, to successfully find a way to defeat the bloodthirsty followers of Khorne.

Independent Material

On this weeks edition, we are still uploading the new batch of warhammer pictures. Therefore, we shall be talking about independent material.

Jus what is this independent material? Well for those who have played warhammer for years, im pretty sure u see sculptures of Warhammer stuff that arent exactly part of the Games Workshop miniature collection.

In the Golden Demon Painting Competition, there is always an open category. And the open category features lots of awesome sculptures that illustrate Warhammer in a different Outlook. It is really awe inspiring when people can take warhammer to another level. I mean there are lots of great painters of warhammer out there. Making the plain colour miniature look angelical or surreal and beautiful.

But the open category of sculpture takes everything into another level. These artisans practically sculpt their own model and paint it in the same quality that take my breath away.
Here are but a few that have really inspired me visually.

Bretonnian Men at Arm.

Imperial Man
High Elf Warrior
All these are open category Winners of yesteryears that have won in the top 3 of the Golden Demon. Many of these figures are personally sculpted with putty and have detail and workmanship that is totally awesome.
Wish i could go to a Golden Demon Convention one day. :P

ImBar Stigma

Today marks the end of theis collection of photoes. And also the end of my macro digicamera shots. We will miss u (DSC-W50). In any case, our new collection of photoes will be pioneered by me and josh and a lil inspiration from Weiting, a fellow warhammer enthusiast.

Armed with josh trusty DSLR camera, i can safely say that the next collection of pictures are so remarkable, it will blow your mind away. (To some extent :p)

In any case, i will be having my exams and thus i will take awhile to upload the pictures. But as for now, i will continue to post up entertaining posts wif josh on warhammer.
Daemon Figure from Games Workshop. This is not our figures. (Our painting havent gone all to that professional yet, But we try our best.)

Today, i wanna just raise the issue of Games Workshop strategy on the Warhammer World. As far as i noe about the trends in the latest edition of Warhammer is that, every new army that is released gets overtly powerful from the previous one.

Which somehow makes the old army list redundant the minute the new one is release. The marketing strategy of making peeps buy the new armies due to their powerful abilities and awesome stats to increase sales is a good Short term tactics. But in the long term, Games Workshop are destroying themselves and the game itself.

With an imbalance gameplay wif new armies being better than the old one. Where is the competition, let alone the intrigue of playing with war tactics and wits if u r already at a serious disadvantage when fighting a newer army.

As far as i noe, the lizardmen army will be next, And God noes what insane spells or abilities they have.

But look at the trend. When High Elves came out, they were buffed a lot. But that was expected and people were please to see High Elves looking more better than their former self. With the Speed of Asuryan ability, they look more formidable in combat. But guess what? they had to release dark elves with the same ability, only using a different name, and buff them even more which puts redundancy to the high elves and all the older armies. (Including my bretonnians -_-)

And then along can warrior of chaos.. which was already ultimately strong. But they boost it a lil more to make high elves go back to looking real mediocre and crap. And oh.. jus to make ppl have to spend more. They made daemons of chaos which was seperate entity from warrior of chaos. So now.. if u wanna have a truly diverse strong chaos army.. U have to spend twice as mucha s before to get the in-depth rules for both books.

But thts not the best part. Daemons of Chaos were so buffed up. Every damn tournament was dominated by them. 89% of the top ten players on average was using a DoC army. Of course before that. Dark Elves had their fair share and WoC too.

But i mean.. where the hell are we going at now?

The whole concept of imbar gameplay where the NEWEST army always wins.. makes it real freaking lame and cliche for a company of Games Workshop Stature.

If ur gonna make Daemons Godlike. Whats the point of the Bretonnians Praying for their Lady of the Lake to protect them. Just throw down ur arms and flee. That goes the same for Empire, Wood Elves and many more that havent join the new edition.

Pls shed some light..


And do come in to comment on what you think.

A Glimpse of the Grail Knight

For today's post we have one of JQ's famed Grail Knights, tough as nails and pack a really powerful punch. From playing experience, I really respect these guys.

Brettonia is the home of one of the best warriors in the Old World, and that happens to be the Grail Knight. These knights are held in such high regard that Kings of Brettonia must be chosen from among the Grail Knights (to ensure the kingdom is certain of fair governance). Upon completion of his/her grail quest (which varies in length) as a Knight of the Realm, the knight will meet the Lady of the Lake and take a sip from her sacred chalice, an event that marks the knight's glorious promotion to the rank of Grail Knight. It is therefore no surprise that the Lady's chalice proudly adorns the accoutrements of the Grail Knights, and serves as a potent symbol to those who lay their eyes upon it, be it friend or foe. Also, no Grail Knight will serve those who have not drunk from the chalice before, and that makes the King of Brettonia and other Grail Knights being the only figures who can call upon their service...(so niao/choosy lol.)

Makes me wonder if it has been possible for a Grail Knight to 'go bad' and go against the Kingdom. I don't really know Bret fluff that much, and JQ do you know? I guess at this stage it is pretty hard for someone to 'go bad'...but you never know. Some would say the higher they rise, the harder they fall.

Well, it's time for me to hand the blog over to JQ, and once again, I hope the entries have been good and we really enjoy posting on this blog in the name of warhammer geekdom :) Take care, and go JQ!!!
