Tomorrow begins the WMH Journeyman League at a FLGS near me so, over the weekend I assembled “battle box” of Trollblood models.

The models were easy to assemble, though the plastic used by Privateer Press is a lot harder than that of a typical GW model making the mold lines a bit more difficult to remove quickly. I placed these guys on some scenic bases and they are ready to take to the field (more on why they are unpainted, below).

Looking forward to playing and while I have been busy reading the rules, listening to podcasts (mostly Chain Attack), and reading Trollblood articles on the internet tomorrow will by very first game with them…or with Warmachine & Hordes in general. While it is easy to get a grasp for the game throughresearch nothing is going to take the place of actual “table time”.

The league runs six weeks and escalates after each week giving me the chance to add more and more models. Also a participant can earn “hobby points” for any models they paint for their faction throughout the event (hence why I’ve held off getting any painting done so far).

In addition I’ve assembled a minimum unit of Kriel Warriors as well as a Fell Caller solo…from what I understand this guy is an indispensable model for a Trollbloods force.

Soon to be posting about games played as well as showing the painting process of the trolls as I go along.

It has been a fair few weeks that we’ve posted anything and I wanted to thank Eric for getting the site back up and working. While the blog was down I got busy with Eldar building and painting through the first 500 points which I took to a tournament at Battleground. Did horribly only winning on of the five games but had a good time and met some good people.

The army is taking shape and while I only have the first 500 painted another 1000 points have been assembled, based and primed. More paint going down this weekend. Here are a few “in progress” images.

So, they are coming together. Looking forward to getting a couple of games in this coming weekend and the expanding the army out with another Spiritseer and a Wraithknight to reach 1850.
