I unveiled this at Border Raids, but there were only a few Warmongers there, and fewer at Conflict this weekend, so here are the pics (and yes, they're the same as on TWF). Enjoy, and comments welcome:


My army on display board:

A bunch of pics of my Ghouls, run in 2x 30+ to start the game:

And a closeup of a few of my unit fillers, including a very old tree from McDeath!
Image


My Grave Guard unit, made from Warhammer Quest Tomb Guard and the Liche King on Throne in the center as a unit filler:
Image
Image
Image


OOP Skeletons, utilized as a Bunker and obviously, an extra Fortitude point:
Image
Image


Wraiths!
Image
Image
Image


The Black Coach:
Image
Image


My Vharg, using one of GW's best models, with a head-swap:
Image


2 old Witch models, acting as my Necromancers:
Image
Image
Image


My Wight King BSB:
Image


Vampire Thrall:
Image
Image


And Nosferatu, the Vampire Lord!
Image
Image


Not shown are 3 additional Wraiths along with plenty of extra Ghouls and Skeletons, and 30 Zombies.

33 out of 40, losing 4 out of 5 possible points for conversions, and 3 points somewhere for freehand or something.

Heavy-Metal wight-king BSB cracks me up. He should be on the cover of a Slayer album.

The colors got washed out by the flash a bit. These look very sweet in person.

Larry, I've never seen anyone do better Vampire faces- they look just amazing, espcially your Mannfred (not shown here?). The old ghouls are cool as hell, I can't believe GW discontinues such awesome models...

I still think you should be using the throned Liche Lord as somekind of character though!

These look very cool , great work here all around .I am not a fan of oop armies but I can see why some people are .

And I think this should have scored higher , gathering old models should give points in the conversion area or something .

Blast from the past, but thanks for the kind words nonetheless!

The problem with the Liche Lord is that he's on a 40mm base to be a unit filler, and he's too big to be on a 20mm given the huge throne and all. It'd be confusing and people would say I'm being gamey or some BS if I just said he counts as 3 other models, because it gets confusing for attacks and attack allocation, etc.
