Brimstone Horrors

So great is Magnar the Clawed, the first followers to flock to his banner, a pack of burning Brimstone Horrors. A clear indication Magnar’s path to glory will be great!

Path to Glory Campaign Game One

I had my first game of Path to Glory!

Chaos – Horstmann’s Heroes VS. Order-Tharndor’s Expeditionary Force

Battleplan: Altars of the Gods

Starting deployment.

20 Blue Horrors are a lot to deal with. I was able to overrun the right flank with them.

Magnar the Clawed and Tzaangors were a bit slow getting to the fight, but they did keep the objectives on my side secure.

Tzaangor Enlightened rushed up my left flank to contest the Altar of Change. Tharndor the Profiteer died challenging them. The Elightened later overran and slew the Grundstok Thunderers.

Horstmann’s Heroes came out victorious vs the punny Kharadon pirates, winning four glory. So fearsome is Magnar that a pack of Brimstone Horrors are now in cahoots with him.

Horstmann’s Heroes

Path to Glory warbands are all about the narrative that build with the warband as you play games. Win or loose your warband should have a good story to tell by the time you gain ten Glory Points.

I believe this narrative starts with a name for your warband and leader. Many sources can inspire you to make your choice. I took this as an opportunity to flip though some older books in my collection for some ideas.

I choose Horstmann’s Heroes for my warband’s name. Engrimm Horstmann’s story I found in Liber Chaotica Tzeentch. He was once an patriarch of College of Light till he fell in with Tzeentch. The “Heroes” was a play on Hogans Heroes.

For my leader, I found a short side-bar story in Realm of Chaos; The Lost and the Damned, about a Tzeentch champion named Magnar the Clawed. I liked the name, so took it.

The other troops I’ll give names to as I play games and they earn their glory!

Tzaangor Enlightened / Skyfires

My Path to Glory warband is now complete! I randomly rolled Tzaangor Enlightened. I would have rather had the Skyfire variant, I think they are better in Age of Sigmar. So, I decided to magnetize the bits so I could switch the parts for each of the units. I also magnetized them to the discs for easier transport.

Magnetizing these figs took a bit of planning.

Next post will be a introduction to my warband, followed by a short battle-report.

Path to Glory Tzeentch 

Another new project! Rolled up a PtG Tzeentch warband with a few friends. I picked Tzeentch to keep the painting momentum from my Silver Tower set. For my warband I rolled up: 1 Gaunt Summoner with Familiars, 5 Tzaangors, 20 Blue Horrors and 3 Enlightened. The Enlightened are built and primed so will appear in a later post. But in the meantime, I’ve finished my Blue Horrors.

Blue Horrors

While assembling the Blue Horrors and Tzaangor Enlightened I also assembled 20 Pink Horrors, 20 Brimstone Horrors, Herald of Tzeentch and a Burning Chariot. At some point I’ll get to them!

Beastmen 

These beastmen completes my path to glory warband.

I bought these figs in the early 90s and have played with them hundreds of times. They are back in action with a new paint job & shields.

My shaman has seen the most action in Warhammer Quest Silver Tower games.

Chimera

Another addition to my Warband, and a useful addition to my chaos dwarf force.

I experimented with the citadel gem paints on the eyes.
