Battle of the five armies

 Battle of the five armies, a force of dwarfs, men and elves must withstand succesive waves of orcs before Beorn and the eagles come to the rescue
 Thorin and co exit Erebor to take part in the battle
 While the warg riders move ahead, the orc infantry footslogs on

 The elves form back to back in order to repel incoming orcs from the north

 The orcs show up away from the elves and charge some poor laketown militia
 The warg riders charged but were soon anihilated
 A lone rider stands against fairly unscatched elves
 The elves form a square and shot in all directions

 Slow grind in the east arm of the mountain

As time passed my father conceded after the masses of Bolg's guard came into play

2nd battle of Konor

 The campaign at the local GW rolls on, today I had a game vs another guard army for the lower hemisphere of the forgeworld Konor. I brough a list low on antitank
 Great was my dismay upon seeing that the enemy had loads of vehicles!
 I got first turn and anihilated most infantry with the punishers
 The enemy wyverns hid and shot
 I captured some objectives in my first turn
 My lightning swooped in and grabbed two VP from objective 3
 A russ also picked up one objective sitting on top of it
 Hive conscripts bagging an objective under a wyverns's nose
 Enemy scions dropped and put some hurt
 But not enough
In the last turn I rounded up mor eobjectives and won 10-7

Disappointed with the lightning fighter, it didn't kill a single unit and took away a quarter of my points. My guard is low on antitank so I might try putting meltas on the russes to improve that.

Man o' War galleys

 Did some galleys for the game, these will be jacks of all trades, doubling up as most of the one wound ships across the fleets

Man o' War high elf ships

 I'm painting a small high elf fleet of 500pts for the game, above you can see an eagleship: basically a ballista platform that fires broadsides. Insted of the origial man o' war models I'll be going with dreadfleet as they are cheaper, bigger and more detailed. The problem with those is that there isn't a great variety of ships which makes proxies form other brands a must for some fleets.
To make the eagleship I had to remove the dragon and ram from the original "seadrake" model.

 There are some cute dolphins around the base, I had to model a wave in the prow to cover the space where the ram was

 The fleet's admiral sails in a dragonship, no tinkering with it since the dreadfleet ship represents it well enough, with the ram and a perched dragon to boot

Man o' War fortresses

 I'm resurrecting my man o war hobby beginning by some shore fortresses. They're nedded for one scenario and as generic terrain. Two are standard medieval, while the third is a modern age fort for nations such as the empire or Bretonnia
