  1. I had a classic Khorne CSM army way back in the days of 3rd edition. It was fully painted in the classic World Eater paint scheme, complete with Rhinos, Juggernauts, etc. Then I grew bored of 40k and foolishly sold the army. Flash forward to today and I want to put together another Khorne army. Granted, it helps that Berzerkers are pretty decent again. Unfortunately, the official Berzerker models haven't changed at all, looking incredibly dated, so I opted to use a quick kit bash of the AoS Blood Warrior model as my Berzerker. I didn't want to do the standard Khorne color scheme, so I s

  2. And now for the best list of all. By no means is this conclusive. We had many people purchase tickets for other people. This is a list of individuals with confirmed ticket purchases. I do know that we had the largest turn out ever for the most game diverse weekned at an OFCC. All of the folks on this list put their faith in us to provide a great weekend. Their support funded the venue, the terrain, the trophies, the giveways, the favorite opponent pins and many other things. This is in alphabetical order. THANK ALL OF YOU FOR A GREAT OFCC! @7 Mile @AgentP @Alexander Marks @Alzra @Ana

    History of OFCC

    HISTORY A long time ago, back when Games Workshop still ran Grand Tournaments, back in the infancy of Ordo, back in sixth Edition, WHFB players would flock to Seattle and play in the Pro-Football stadium. At the Grand Tournament, there were a lot of great people to meet and great armies to gaze on. The geek fest was palatable. There were two problems with the Grand Tournaments. First, this was well before the Internet created mega lists and offered tools and techniques to play against them. Player pools were smaller. Some gamers brought the models they had. Others brou

  4. For the benefit of all involved I am revising my previous plan. Thank you to everyone who has voiced their opinion, and thank you for everyone keeping a cool head about it. I would like to bounce some ideas about factions around at the ORDO senate meeting but for now please know that the restrictions will be relaxed significantly. I will finalize the specifics after this weekend. Team size is going to remain at 4 as in previous years.

  6. Step 1 - Da Kunnin' Plan Like the rest of the hobby world, I was curious how the new Citadel Contrast Paints worked compared to traditional hobby paints. Along with the usual hobby disease of buying whatever is shiny and new, I figured there were a few other hobby symptoms I could bundle together and treat all once with a bit of planning. Here's what I wanted to achieve: Try shiny new paints released with a whole lotta marketing and fanfare As Contrast Paints are designed to speed up painting to tabletop quality, clear out some minis from the backlog on my shelves End

  8. WE DID IT! OFCC 2019 COMPLETE!! Well, what can we say? Did we all have a great time? Did we all get 5 great games? Did we all make new friends, enemies, or even frienemies (half friend, half enemy)? I certainly did! I would like for all of you take this time while basking in the afterglow of gaming glory to reach out and say "THANK YOU" to the following people who worked very hard to make all of OFCC a reality. @Blustorm - Club Treasurer and Historian, this guy rocks it! Not only did he successfully run the very first OFCC boardgame event (M-A-R-S), he was on hand to ringer for

If you have your team all set up please send me a PM here, on FB or via email at Jarredh@gmail.com. I will add your team name to the roster. You will still need to buy tickets, this is just to get an idea of who is bringing a team. Also let me know if you are in need of a player for your team, I will add that info next to your team name. Last thing, please consider booking a hotel room for the weekend. We are all hoping the COVID19 situation is resolved by July so i

  13. Now Thanks for our Heads of Gaming: These folks stepped up to the gaming table and said "I will show them the way." They put themselves out there to provide quality events for all our attendees. They worked hard on developing the event packets and missions. They solicited for prize support. They worked with Ordo Fanaticus to make sure all aspects of the hobby were accounted for and that sportsmanship was held to a higher standard than most other events. Please join me in saying "THANK YOU" for all the work they did. Warhammer 40K - Team Event - @evil_bryan Ordo Bowl III: All Ara

This would also be a perfect opportunity to drop off a consignment or have us take a look at a lot that you have been thinking of liquidating while you're here. We can also give you a free estimated appraisal while you're at the event to give you an idea of what your items are worth and how much you could potentially make. In addition to our stock, we plan to have a table for last minute painting/miniature repai

  17. Okay, time for a massive update! First, I did print a ton of barrels for scatter terrain Next, I decided this table would be more manageable as a whole if I built six 2x2 tiles. So I began the process of assembling and arranging everything printed to date. Here is Tile #1 (each tile has two images): Here is Tile #2: Tile #3: Tile #4 Tile #5: The final tile is still in process (I am reworking the pipe tile), but here is a shot of the everything done to date. FYI - Pete is in the shot for scale purposes only,

After many rounds of combat and games of strength, a group of strong-willed individuals have come together to facilitate, organize, administrate and promote wargaming in the Pacific Northwest, under the proud banner of Ordo Fanaticus. You, the wargamer, are the most important part of this fine community.

Got the 'Hero' models primed on Sunday and painted Monday.

Okay, now that I have an appropriate click bait title for what can be an emotionally charged issue I can get started. 🙂 After answering this question for one of the captains, I thought it would be useful to post my position so others had the opportunity to judge me harshly. 🙂 Not having list rating in this year's 40K OFCC reflects my personal opinion on it not being worth the effort it takes. I have a few issues with list rating that I am happy to share to better frame my decision not to have it. List rating requires early list submission, which historically has been a

  29. In the grand world of the game, there are many ways to play and many places to play. Some people prefer the garage with their good friends. Some like to push the limit of the rules to face stomp their opponents. At Ordo, we like sportsmanship and hobbists. We don't mind losing, but we want it to be a fun game at the hands of an opponent we would gladly play again. We want community builders, not hobby killers. If our style is not yours, go create your own community. We've spent almost 18 years making this one. When you have run over a decade of 40 man tournaments, let us know what works for y

  34. Finally, a freaking update. I'm backing off the Chaos theme for now and going more generic. As such I built a big hill. It's split so it can be a bit more flexible, plus each half can fit in a 12 gallon tote. Rough foam form on beveled MDF Chipped slate fit into place with foam cutouts Foam shaping done with a wire wheel, sanding block and orbital sander Detail on the split. I tried to get the smooth slate edges to line up. I'll fill them later.

  41. Do you have lots of GW paint sitting around crying for organization? Then maybe you need one of these: Here are some feature of this paint solution Each layer holds 12 GW paint pots (newer style) All layers spin independently around the center The modular design allows for customized storage- 36, 48, 60 pots or more! The rack can be disassembled for easy transport and storage Spacers are included in the kit to accommodate various paint pot heights Here is what is included in the 3 Tier system: Here is a shot of spacers

  42. Hey all - I'm actually finally getting around to working on a Death Korps of Krieg army, and one of my support vehicles is an Armageddon Pattern Basilisk. I've been posting the progress down in the Artificiers Forge board, but I'd figured I'd post the "finished for now" photos here as well. I will likely go back and add some additional weathering when a few more vehicles are completed so I can keep the weathering consistent, but it's ready for the table! Full photo-set at the link below, but I've attached a few good high-resolution photos to this post to give you an idea of the final pro

    Just got my package of stuff from this the other day. My only regret is that I couldn't afford more of it. Fantastic work. I haven't seen anything needing touchup except on the bottoms, and the grey resin you used looks nice enough that I would be totally happy seeing these on the table even unpainted. I mean, I am going to paint mine, but you know. Just great, and I hope I have more money available the next time you do a KS for some of your Terrain.
