I've been fiddling around a bit with the Army Builder software, editing my 1000-point list for Orcs and Goblins. I may redo my Skaven list as well. I need to squeeze a magic user into the army, probably a Warlock Engineer. I'm trying to come up with two relatively well-matched opposing armies, so that I have some sort of goal to work toward with the Orcs and Goblins.

Hobbytown put a lot of their stale stock on sale, including some Warhammer figures that have been on the shelves for at least as long as I've been a customer there. Last week I picked up a box of Golgfag's Mercenary Ogres at 75% off. With a name like Golgfag you've got to be tough. If they're still there in a few weeks I will probably pick up a unit of Savage Orcs. They're pretty pricey at the regular price, but at 50% off I can build a full unit for the price of one box. We'll see how the spending money shakes out.

I spent the last few days in World of Warcraft farming an Azure Whelpling as a gift for my wife. Each of the four whelp pets has a 1 in 1000 chance to drop, and I think I killed about 1000 for this one. The one I farmed for myself dropped after 8 kills. I have two of the four whelps available from world drops, I still need to get the Emerald Whelpling (a real bear to get) and the Dark Whelpling.

  1. Golfangs Ogres are one of the classic (I remember when they were brand new!) Dogs of War units, And some of the best metal ogres GW have produced.

    Also where can I get my hands on the Army builder software as it would be really useful. Thanks
