I'm taking a break from Warhammer Quest and Kill Team to get stuck back into some Warhammer Underworlds! I decided to start the goblins of Grinkrak's Looncourt and have done two of the little fellas so far. I'm just doing the box art scheme because it's simple and I like the look of it, keen to get the other five done and get them onto the table.
First game of Warhammer Underworlds with the new Gnarlwood rules, Ironsoul's Condemnors vs. the Shadeborn!
I used Battle Mallet's suggested Nemesis deck (https://www.battle-mallet.com/nemesis-decks/) for the Condemnors because it turned out the one I had put together a while back sucked, and it was very fun, but ended up very one-sided, oops. It was partially due to some lucky rolling on my part, but we called it half-way through the second turn out of three total because I'd wiped out @yayKM's warband entirely and the score was already 9-5. Fighter of the match goes to Brodus Blightblade who single-handedly killed two of the four enemy warriors outright (the first one in the first activation of turn one) and did two out of three damage to a third one that allowed me to ping that third one for an extra one damage to kill him.
I really like the new rule changes for activations specifically, and the Nemesis format is great.
And that's the Looncourt assembled and undercoated!
I did the Gnarlspirit Pack from the Gnarlwood core box as well, and the keen-eyed (and/or Warhammer 40,000 nerds) amongst you will notice that the leader's arm doesn't quite look right. That's because it's the arm of a Tyranid Genestealer that I put on because the thumb on his regular arm had broken off in the box, so I just chopped the whole arm off and replaced it with this one. Annoyingly I had a similar issue with the head of the leader of the other warbands from that same box, the Sons of Velmorn, the box must have been REALLY banged up in transit. 😕 I'm undecided whether I'm going to actually spend the time to paint up the leader with the replacement arm, haha.
(I contacted the place I bought them from and it's no hassle to get new sprues sent out, just annoying.)
