Battle for Port Maw

This past weekend, Dan Norris, Thomas Morgan, and the Alamo GT scene sponsored a one-day, 124,000 point Warhammer 40,000 Apocalypse game. I haven't played 40k since 2010, but I showed up for a bit to take pictures and watch the Chaos! They had four tables going, with 30 players. In the end, the forces of evil won by a paltry 14 out of 300+ objectives!
  I wasn't paying close enough attention to really know what was going, on, but feel free to follow the jump if you want to see the epic conflict as it raged in turns 3-4!

Just a brief announcement...

I meant to post this weeks ago, but things just keep causing me to forget.
  I have formally accepted a nomination to represent the US South Region as part of the 2014 Warhammer Master's Tournament. I was picked based not on the 2013 tournament year (where I shanked the whole season with my horrible Vampire Counts lists), but based on what I did with the Orcs & Goblins in 2012: going 14-7-4 and picking up a pair of 2nd Overalls (at Quake City Rumble and Bayou Battles).
  Therefore, the Beer Waaagh! will make it out of retirement for one final, deciding event! If you're curious to see what all the fuss is about, I encourage you to make the trip out to Raleigh on 22-23 February 2014. You'll probably see me lose four games horribly, as the Northeast guys are just going to rip apart my soft list and feeble generalship and I haven't approached a game competitively since Alamo 2012, but I'll enjoy seeing where my painting ranks on the national scene!
  See you all in Raleigh!

WiP Brythoniaid Dyndraig

It's been a few weeks since my last update. Luckily, this silence wasn't imposed by a lack of painting, but by a lack of taking the time to post the stuff I have painted! This week, we'll take a look at some more models by Mierce Miniatures: the Dyndraig of the Brythoniaid. Eventually this unit will have six models, where it will fill a Chaos Ogres role in my Dragon Cult list.

Start to finish, after the jump...
