Hello, fellow Herohammerers!
A while ago I created rules for Magic Item Draft as a simple expansion for the 5th edition of WFB. The main goal was to promote using less common magic items and to get rid of old item combos. This makes heroes less impactful and gives units an edge. Now we use Magic Item Draft in every game we play. To test it on your own, all you need is a set of cards from 5th ed Warhammer Magic and a set of color-matched card sleeves (standard size - 66x91 mm UltraPro deck protectors work great for me).

The rules are just one page of text, I hope you like them as much as we do!

I have just completed another 7 Chaos Dwarf Warriors together with Chaos Dwarf Hero. This is how they look with the rest of the unit:
|Mighty Chaos Dwarf Hero leads his brave unit to the battle|
|The Chaos Dwarfs are well known for their tough armour and sharp axes|
The year 2019 comes to an end so here is my Herohammer painting summary. This year I managed to collect and paint a new army - Chaos Dwarfs (for the second time in my life!). So here they are:

Happy New Year!
That was a busy weekend. I participated in Oldhammer Weekend Poland - Warhammer Fantasy Battles 5th edition narrative campaign. It was really fun! My Chaos Dwarf force led by Gilgamesh the Son of Hashut was baptized in the fire of the battle. They managed to defeat the warriors of Dwarfs, Wood Elves and the Empire of Man. On top of that, I received the award of the best-painted army! I am already thinking what to paint for the next year Oldhammer Weekend :)

|Ziggurat Guard - the personal retinue of sorcerer Enkidu|
|Immortals these old wise warriors are military advisors of Gilgamesh|
|Chaos Dwarf Blunderbusses are the workhorse of the army|
|Death Rocket Launcher the dangerous and unpredictable weapon of|
|Earthshaker Cannon - the most powerful cannon in the whole Old World|
|Chaos Dwarf expedition force|
I needed some rest from mass painting, so I decided to go for the big guy, the mighty sorcerer Enkidu riding into battle mounted on Humbaba the Horrible:

|Enkidu was created by the gods to defeat Gilgamesh|

Today I present you my one weekend project, a unit of 14 Chaos Dwarf Blunderbusses. I was painting them together with a small unit of Chaos Dwarf Warriors, but I need to paint the shield before I post them here. Closer and closer th Oldhammer Weekend Polnad (5 days).

The Oldhammer Weekend is so close, only 6 days left. Unfortunately, I have still a lot to paint to complete my Chaos Dwarfs project, but I will try to do my best! Here are some artillery pieces already complete and waiting for the rest of the army:
|Chaos Dwarf Death Rocket Launcher|
|Chaos Dwarf Earthshaker Cannon|
|The mighty cannon itself|
|Dreadful Chaos Dwarf artillery|
A Tale of Seven Gamers Q2 already started, so it is time to declare this quarter goal. To complete Q2 I need to paint 500 points of Chaos Dwarf models, so I picked the units which will make my army battle ready (5th edition, 1k pts). To achieve this I need one unit of Chaos Dwarf Warriors (rules requirement) and something extra to fill the points and add some flavor. I decided to put my money on good old dwarf stuff - artillery. So here is how it comes to 500 points:
- 16 Warriors (including command)
- Death Rocket
|A pile of lead waiting for some paint|
As I mentioned earlier, I declared to paint my new Chaos Dwarf army General as the first stage of A Tale of Seven Gamers painting challenge. So here he is, Gilgamesh Son of Hashut Chaos Dwarf Lord riding The Bull of Heaven:

|The ground is melting under the hoofs of this monster|

Don't hesitate to see the fantastic work of other competitors on the Game of Travel.
For everyone missing the double-deck version of Snotling Pump Wagon - here it comes!
|The high roof makes the Snotlings proud of their construction|
|It is hard to reach these little buggers so high|
|The heavy construction makes a huge effort to move forward|
|The vuvuzela guy likes to stand out|
|Some of these mushrooms are very toxic!|
|Snotlings shoot projectiles of all kinds at anyone close enough|
|You better run for your life!|

Two weekends ago I brought my Waaagh! to Oldhammer Weekend Poland - narrative campaign, based on Warhammer Fantasy Battle 5th edition rules. I have met so many great people, it was a great fun! My passion for Greenskins grew after I saw them running randomly over the battlefield bringing death and confusion into the ranks of their enemies. There was a battle against the Stunties in which my force dealt more casualties to itself than it received from enemy dwarfs :)
Also, I am glad to inform you that my Waaagh! was honored with The Artist Award - hurray!

The event made me very excited about 5th edition once more and the latest reactivation of the blog is caused by the energy I got from it.
I hope you enjoy the 5th edition of Warhammer Fantasy Battle as much as I am.
