Road to Glory- The Red Guard, Cannoneer's Khorne

Post by Cannoneer »

Hello!! and here is the newest addition to One Eye's The Road To Glory!!
(thanks to Astro and Moraiwe for pictorial advice)

The Red Guard are originally a minor noblemen's fraternity that hails from Carroburg. What began as a bunch of bored and overindulged nobles who are forced by their families to attend the Carroburg uUiversity and gain valuable lessons for life's as nobles, leaders and rich well connected adults. With too much time and too much money they have begun to take a jaded interest in things that should probably best be left alone. What started as sneaking into the forbidden section of the library. Reading ribald stories and macabre literature. Stealing glances at the more risque publications kept by some of the more liberal minded lecturers starting getting out of hand. (no one speaks of the night that the dark shadowy elf maiden encouraged a pair of new members to leave with her and anyway that is a different story....)

So with the briefest of beginnings, I assure all, that more fluff will follow....

here is the SSB MVP mini, Vlad the Bull, he will be the basis of the Bloodthirster I will be creating.
The wings are from a blue dragon mini that I purchased in my early 20's.
So this will be the centre piece of the team.

A gang of Warhammer beastmen that I have inadvertently collected over the years.
The little blues ones will be Bloodletters, minus the axe and with some serious sawing and 'dremeling' to remove the sheilds molded to their arms.
The Bigger grey Beastmen will be the Heralds, minus the halberds naturally

and the latest addition (last monday! no less) a complete box of Warhammer Chaos Marauders that will be my Pit Fighters.
There is a variety of heads and bodies in the box, I intend to use the helmeted heads for the guys who have their first skill upgrades (being exclusively Block) and the un-helmeted ones will be Blockless to make it easier to tell them apart during games. So there will be an excess of minis made and substituted as they skill up.
**note, the first conversion I will be building will be one of my Pit Fighters that received a +1 MV upgrade. I intend to replace his feet with the hooves from one of the 'Heralds', I am hoping he will stand just a little taller and look just a little more mobile (probably looking Satyr-ish, if that's possible)

Hello all, I bit of thread necromancy here!

I have decided to include my Khorne team The Red Guard, in to MBBL Season17, for the first half of this year.

I intend to not only play the Khornites but also paint the team over the next few months (you don't eat an apple in one bite' so I was told by someone else...lol)

So, more details to follow, more fluff, more paint, and more match reports.

I'm hoping you write one for your next game. We can extend the battle from pitch to reportage. Really tempted to take a Chef and see how well you do with all that frenzy and no rerolls.
I feel only two things: nothing and nothingness.

I did one frenzied block all game Round 1. In middle of second half, a 2 dice block that led to a 1 dice block and naturally I rolled a skull (or maybe a both down against a Blitzer, same result ofcause). Even had several good crowd surfing opportunities but the skaven fell down on the first block rolled (and I could only roll a few KO's and fewer stuns)

A chef would have to be a pretty genuine consideration, imo, and will probably speed up my turns quite nicely as well (win-win for you me thinks, quicker match AND your first win ;) )

I considered sacking the Bloodthirster after his pretty piss weak effort first round but apart from your team and Dicerollers, (my cross div match is Urban Dictionary Despoilers, also a very TV team) the rest of the Copper Div is pretty level TV to mine
(yes, if I could have my time over I would very MUCH prefer a pair of Heralds instead of the useless frothing monstrosity baying with terrifying inepitude, anyway, it is what it is and i'll play on)

As stated in our post match bulletin the Ratskin Renegades strongly deny any allegation that we drugged your Blood Thirster in the previous matchup!
