New battle reports!!

Hi guys!! I was giving my friend Alan a bit of a Warhammer workout - he's thinking of getting back into it and wanted to test it out. We had three battles in the past few weeks, and unfortunately I lost 2 out of 3 - only won the first one - GAH!! The battle reports for the first two are online as follows, but I haven't gotten a batrep done for Game 3 yet - I'll post it as soon as I do...

1000 pts O&G vs. Empire - Alan's first game in years
1250 pts O&G vs. Empire - Alan's second game in the 7th Ed. of Warhammer

And the following Pistolier Musician I converted!! I have included instructions also!! :)


(1) Parts

I began with teh following bits:
* 1 x Medieval horse(the unarmoured Empire/Brettonian warhorses)
* 1 x mounted body legs(Empire command frame)
* 1 x pistol(Milita boxed set)
* 1 x head w' feathered hat(Empire command frame)
* 1 x musician drum (Empire command frame)
* 1 x musician drumstick arm(Empire command frame)
* 2 x additional armour plates(the extra plates from the 6 Ed. soldiers boxed set)
* 1 x milita body(Milita boxed set)
* 1 x cavalry base

(2) Assembly
I gathered all the bits in a pile in front of me and began work.
(1) I assembled the horse and drilled a hole in his back for a pin(I pin all my cavalry instead of gluing them - makes for easier packing/transport)
(2) I then left the horse to dry and stuck the Milita body to the command frame legs
(3) Meanwhile, I took the arms and attached 1 of the armour plates to each one
(4) I stuck the head to the Milita body
(5) After approx. 30 mins drying, I glued the body and legs together
(6) I then attached the drumstick arm arm and glued the drumstick to the legs on the same side of the body
(7) I attached the pistol arm
(8) After approx. 60 mins drying time, I drilled a hole in the underside of the legs for pinning the rider during games
(9) Finally, I cut the pin to length and superglued it in place

VOILA!! One converted Pistolier musician!!

Status update - college has resumed!!

Hi all!! Sorry for not updating in a month if you're reading this - I was kinda busy with RL and modelling new units. Over Christmas I accuired 25 State Troops(Swordsmen), 20 Flagellants and 8 White WOlves - plus I still have a 1500pts plus backlog of unpainted models - hem,hem!! So anyway, basically this is to the effect that with college having resumed, UCD GameSoc has started again and I will hopefully now have more to report!! Games, painting, etc. Toodles for now!!

Earliest exploits!!

Hello again all!! I'm trying to put up some stuff for you to read while I get my camera a new data cable so I am posting below the links to threads on Warhammer-specific forums which I have created up to now RE: the Imerial Army - each list is in roughly chronolgical order:

Battle Reports
* I had a loss against some Dwarfs here, but no battle report was made.
* I had one defeat against a Tomb Kings army here, but never bothered writing a proper report for it.
* I had a loss against some High Elves here, but again, no proper battle report.

Painting & Modelling:
* A"sort-of" coversion: Militia become Swordsmen & halberdiers as well as Free Company:
* A "proper" conversion - a Pisitolier musician from various assorted Empire bits:

At least you have these threads to digest while I try to organise some proper pictures....
