At least he is out of the packet !

I try really hard not to get caught up in taking things too seriously we are part of a broad church after all. Partly why we still occasionally play KoW fantasy games. The ogres were back on the battlefield last night against abyssal dwarves. I didn't take many photos at all.....the abyssal dwarves not being very pleasing to the eye or camera lense !
 The ogres lining up as usual and charging across the table
Now not sure what went wrong, possibly the dice gods in their fickle nature just decided it wasnt the ogres night, possibly I under played the ogres and need to look harder to upgrade in some areas ? (not really keen on getting into an arms race) the dwarves artillery was devastating flattening units like corn in the wind ! Suffice to say although the ogres/ giants knocked quite a bit of stuff about they were pretty much wiped out, there was a glimmer of hope near the end when they might have snatched an extra objective but the distance was too great.☹️
....and why the post title......well John is refreshingly not bound by the aesthetics of many gamers (and don't get me wrong that is fine, we have had many many fun battles which will continue) and he did make me laugh when on this occasion he fielded this guy ! well at least he is out of the packet πŸ˜€πŸ˜€

  1. Oh the horror, too shiny. I remember the 1st time I fielded an entirely painted army. I was about 45 years old

    2. To be fair I still occasionally have troops who are not quite finished or where their bases haven't been done. I do manage to get full painted armies on the field sometimes....a different question is whether I have any armies which are finished and that is a NO πŸ˜€

  3. I hope you're not too disheartened, looking forward to fielding my undead army in the not too distant future against you. I'm polishing their bones as I type...that sounds so wrong! :)
