I look forward to checking out the new theme lists, not sure I will use them, but cool that they are there.

Hordes: Legion of Everblight - Hellmouth (and other purchases)

Okay, yes, its been awhile, sorry.

Life has been really busy, but and I will try to post more.  Yes, I know, you have heard that before too, lol.

So, I really love my Legion of Everblight army.  This was my first army for Hordes, and I will always play them.  I know I have started other armies, but they will always be my go to fun army.  So, I decided I needed to expand on the models that I currently have.  So I did some researching on what others play, most popular units, solos, beasts, etc.  And then I decided, to hell with that, I want to play what I think would be fun, rather that play what other people are doing.

I have not been to Imperial Outpost for a long time, and knowing that they always have a huge stock of Warmachines and Hordes, I made the long haul trip all the way across the Valley Of The Sun to visit them.

Below is a picture of what I picked up that day.

List of what I purchased:

  • Carnivean - Ravagore - Scythean Box
    • Going to build the Scythean
  • Hellmouth
  • Strider Deathstalker
  • Fyanna The Lash
  • Thagrosh, Prophet of Everblight (Thagrosh 1)
  • The Forsaken (not pictured above)

I still want to pickup a second Hellmouth unit, and another Deathstalker, and probably a second Forsaken as well.

So, for this post, I will be focusing on the Hellmouth unit, as this is the first of the above that I completed.

The unit went together rather well, and the models were very well designed/made.  I love the way they look and could not wait to finish painting them.

As far as rules go, this unit has to be one of the most scariest units that Everblight has in its arsenal.  I love the fact that every turn you can bring back one of the Tendrils that was lost in previous turns to a max of three on the table at one time, and when you bring them in you can place them anywhere in formation of the Maw, which has a command radius of 8 inches.  The other scary and cool rule they have is the Impervious Flesh rule.  So when they are hit, the Maw or Tendrils get one less dice when trying to wound them, which make their surviveability very high.

I can't wait to get these guys on the table to enact some carnage, lol.

Below is a picture of the finished unit, all painted and based.

Until next time, keep gaming and having fun.
