Hobgobla-Khan, Terror of the Steppes

From http://animositycampaigns.com/

As the sneering honor guard of Hobgoblins led him at spear point through the camp, Cathayan Ambassador Eg-Shen and his aide De-Ling could only marvel at the army around him. As far as he could clearly see and gathering into muddled shadows even further from his vision was the army of Hobgobla-Khan. Numbering in the hundreds of thousands, the Hobgoblin encampment covered several square miles of the Western Plains.



All around Shen was the pungent odor of Hobgoblin and wolf, the two races living in mutual harmony. Here and there tooth and clawed battles broke out between gathered wolves, fighting for bones, pups or mating privileges. Beyond the fighting lupines were the Hobgoblins themselves. From the depths of hooded cloaks or sheltered yurts, the Hobgoblins paused as the Ambassador walked past, glaring at him with both hatred and a morbid sense of menace. The needle sharp teeth in their heads were clearly visible as they grinned long and menacingly at the Cathayan visitor. Eg-Shen shook inwardly, being surrounded by the army of unscrupulous monsters and their unclean beasts. Huge bonfires lit up the afternoon sky as the small army of camp cooks set about feeding the horde of monsters. As was the case of late, rations were getting smaller and the menu far less varied. As the famine form the south threatened the human populace of Cathay, so too had famine and disease come to the army of Hobgobla-Khan. It came as no surprise to Shen when he saw a small Hobgoblin child wander too close to a pack of starving wolves that the beasts tore into the greenskin child, ripping out its throat before it could even call for help, then dragging the corpse back into the shadows of the tent city to be devoured. The sight of such carnage was hardly something new to the jaded ambassador to the Hobgoblin nations, but Shen was still shocked to see that none of the nearby Hobgoblins gave the loss a second glance, instead worrying about their own rations while keeping a wary eye on their mates!

Hobgoblin Background

They are found living on the Eastern Steppes of the Warhammer world where they are ruled over by the Khans, all of whom answer to the Hobgobla-khan, the greatest of the hobgoblin warlords.



They are considered so untrustworthy and underhanded by the other Orcs and goblin races that they refuse to have dealings with them. However, they are employed by the Chaos Dwarfs as their slave drivers organizing other goblin slaves. The reason for the close relationship with the Chaos Dwarf dates back to the Black Orc revolt when the Hobgoblins initially marched with their larger cousins but soon betrayed them to the Chaos Dwarves and so gained their trust.

Morathi the Hag Sorceress


Morathi the Hag Sorceress is the mother of Malekith. She was the second wife of Aenarion who rescued her from a Slaaneshi warband in the days of the first Chaos invasion before The Sundering. She is also the first Hag queen of the Witch Elves. Morathi can be seen as the indirect cause of The Sundering as it was she who introduced the pleasure cults to Ulthuan.

Background

After the The Second Great Chaos Incursion, the princes of Ulthuan needed to elect a new Phoenix King. Though Malekith was the obvious choice, the princes instead passed it over to Bel Shanaar since they needed a ruler who was less warlike (Despite Morathi Protesting against it). Bel Shanaar then married Yvraine (Aenarions daughter from his first wife), causing Morathi to lose her title as Queen.

Warband of The Bane Mistress, The collecting Part 7


Arhhhhh what a fecking week the last 7 days have been in the Danks Household. I'm glad that's over with and proper hobby time can resume.

Thanks to a few trades I'm now down to only missing 7 Dark Elves.. trouble is I'm having a hard time sourcing the ones I fancy/need. As you seen for a earlier post I've already had to bow down and except plastic into this Warband.

So anyway enough rambling on about shit and time for pictures!

An Idea is blooming.. Part 1


So a interesting thought popped into my head, I have never  done a actual ''Chaos'' army. Sure I've done separate Beastmen/Chaos Dwarves/Slaaneshi Dark Elves/Malal Fimir forces and the Wife plays Demons, but I have never done a combined army of the above or even a Warband.

So Chico, Chaos God of Nudehammer, is going to set this right and actual do a 1000 Point Chaos Warband (Using Warhammer Armies). With plans to expand later on, I'm currently building/painting Dark Elves which for the time being are the main focus.

Better yet It's on a budget of £50 and fully metal, What!? That's crazy! I hear you cry.. before you berate me, I'm the king of budget, so I have a plan!

Warband of The Bane Mistress, The collecting Part 6 or those Fecking Crossbows!


Well sorry for the lack of updates this week, sadly my Wife was taken to the AAU ward of Watford General Hospital after having a series of 6 fits in 24 hours (which increased to another 2 while there) and problems breathing, not to mention a bashed head.

So while this was all going on I did manage a little hobby, even if that was managing to source some Dark Elf Crossbowmen.

These were a steal at £2 for the lot, even with missing Xbows and the fact I didn't want plastic
