Completed Chainrasp Hordes

I knew from the beginning that my Nighthaunt army would have the Chainrasp Horde as the main Battleline unit.  For this I needed lots of Chainrasps and I was lucky enough to acquire three starter sets of models.

I now have 60 painted models divided into three 20-man units.  These have been absolutely fantastic in every game I have played.  These are a must have as far as I am concerned.

Glavewraith Stalkers

This is my 10 man (ghost) unit of Glavewraith Stalkers.  When Soul Wars was initially releasted this was the unit that got my attention.  The models were really creepy and unique and I was really excited to paint them and get them on the table.  I still like the models, especially the easy build set, but in game terms they are a bust.  I have used them in almost all my games and they never seem to earn their points back.  I have used them as line troop and as flankers.  Nothing seems to work.  I understand why they are rarely used in Nighthaunt armies.  Sadly I will likely retire them soon.

Shokkjump Dragsta

This is one of two new Ork buggies included in Games Workshop's new Speed Freeks game.  This is the Shokkjump Dragsta and it is just about the coolest thing ever.  I just don't even know where to start with this.  The style, the vibe, is just perfect.  I have always thought of Orks as space rednecks and this captures that perfectly.  I mean. really, you have big tires, side pipes, a cool scoop and a spoiler, oh and an Ork driver, a big gun with grot gunners and a targeting squig.  It even has a flux capacitor and the grot gunner is using an Atari 2600 joystick for the missiles.  It literally has everything you could want. Perfect.
