Re: BOYL The Engines of Avalone Siege game

Love the back story Erny - If I get time I'll add the viewpoint from my Orc Warlord...

Just about there with the painting but am up in the Lakes today and tomorrow again - hopefully there will be a siege tower and covered ram kit awaiting me to be painted up Wednesday/Thursday.

Other than that I will have the following to bring

Defenders
Boiling oil, rock droppers, etc from the Siege Defenders set
6 Mounted Knights
20 Human Pike
15 Wood Elf Archers
20 Wood Elf Guard (archers)
20 or so assorted Dwarves including 5 Dwarf crossbowmen
10 Human Forresters
10 Gnomes
6 Dwarf Sappers + various 1 and 2 inch sections of sandbag walls for them to build
Makeshift barricades
Mealie bag walls
wooden pallisades, fences and other stuff for hastily fortified homesteads and farms
1 Treeman
1 Zoat
Wood Elf Animal handlers with cats, dogs and a bear
(A load of Norse if we need them)
a dozen or so villagers
4 wounded with stretchers
2 carts with draft animals
3 pack mules

Attackers
2 Wyverns
1 Giant
1 Evil Giant/Giant Troll
10 x Golgfag's Ogres
6 x Ogres
6 Trolls + Goblin Shaman on Giant Spider
10 x Snortas
6 x Gruntas
20 x Gobbo Wolf riders
30 x Rugluds Armoured Orcs
20 x Ugezods Mothercrushers
30 x Orc warriors
24 x Savage Orcs
25 x Orc Spearmen
21 x Orc Archers
36 x Gobbo Stickas
31 x Grom's Goblin Guard
30 x Goblin warriors
30 x Goblin Spearmen
20 x Swamp Goblins
1 x War Tortoise Ajax with Swamp Goblin crew
5 Stone Throwers including Man Mangler and Skullcrusher
Leadbelcher
2 Hobgoblin Rocket launchers
10 Hobhounds and 2 handlers
3 Orc Shamans
1 Goblin shaman
1 bound Hippogriff
2 log rams
various ladders
1 siege tower (to be built)
1 covered ram (to be built)

I had hoped to get Throgg's despoiling Hobgoblins done in time but that looks unlikely now. Similarly I had another 20 Orc archers and 30 of the lovely old plastic Orcs from the Warhammer Regiments box set which probably won't make it along with a few more hobhounds and handlers to beef up the Hobgoblin contingent.

I decided didn't have time to do the Marauder Giant justice so he'll have to wait for another time.

Oh nearly forgot my secret weapon - Kev Adams and his dastardly band of Snotling and Snorklings!

If he doesn't make it onto the battlefield as my general he'll certainly end up in the Foundry category for the painting comp :lol:

Oh and bravo to you all for your fantastic efforts in build and painting stuff - this is going to be a game of truly epic proportions!

Re: BOYL The Engines of Avalone Siege game

Whilst gathering my few bits & pieces together for the weekend I found about three foot of universal trench/field defenses (unpainted) are these of any use? Will apply a basic coat of paint as I now have an reason to take them out of the box in the next twelve hours! :lol: :lol: :lol:

How can I ever have enough stuff, I don't need.

If you've got time I'm sure we can find a use for them!

So you're saying there's a chance that Kev Adams will be judging a painting competition containing a figure of Kev Adams sculpted by Kev Adams? Are you TRYING to break the universe?? :p

Hmmm...the man has a point. It is a little irresponsible... ;)

Re: BOYL The Engines of Avalone Siege game

Well maybe I'll just put the Snorklings in - would be funny though :lol:

Quite like the idea of breaking the universe too... :twisted:

I'm still having him as general of my Goblinoid horde - or at least as some kind of Pied Piper of Goblins!

Re: BOYL The Engines of Avalone Siege game

Hey,

Is it too late to join in the siege?
I will try to bring as many archers, men-at-arms and some foot knights as I can safely cram into my luggage. I’ll be at the event from Friday to Sunday by the way. If possible I’ll upload some images of the stuff I bring later today.

Well, let me know if there is room for one more in the festivities!

Cheers
Martin
