Dazmir Darkspine is ancient even for an elf, it has been claimed he was one of the first elves created by the Old Ones or even a being from before their time bound in flesh. Whatever the truth he has been a servant of Doombringer for thousands of years, loyal and enigmatic he stalks the darker legends of the Doom Spire and haunts its corridors to this day. As a younger elf he fought alongside his lord against the elves of Ulthuan but was blinded by a Loremaster of Hoeth, barely escaping with his life he vowed to bring ruination upon the mages of the high elves. Using his vast resources and scholarly knowledge he constructed a helmet that allows him to see the winds of magic as well as a suit of armour with accompanying weapons through which he can channel raw power. He now has a sinister reputation for the esoteric and forbidden; the screams rising from the Doom Spire enough to chill the heart of even the fiercest of druchii.

Foremost of the great houses that serve the Doom Spire; House Lancarion is the most powerful family to rise from the ranks of the Blood Legion in centuries. After ousting House Fireblade from the ark, the Lancarions monopolised the position of Lord-General as well as other High and Low Council positions. Possessed of a ruthless drive for power they often go to extraordinary lengths to better the fortunes of their family.
Originally from Chrace; the Lancarions were one of the few families outside Nagarythe who supported Malekith during the elven civil war. Their army was crushed by the loyalists in the opening stages of the war forcing them to flee to Anlec. Here they served several of the great houses as mercenary generals where they had some success fighting against their farmer kinsmen. Upon the sundering and destruction of the outer kingdoms the Lancarions fled north with the dark elves and entered into the servitude of the Doom Spire Fleet.

To finish off my 15 point Menoth list I have added two support units to empower my warjacks.
The choir of Menoth is an auto-take unit in almost every menoth list. Their hymns grant a variety of benefits to 'jacks in my battlegroup that allow them to take on more powerful warjacks than themselves and win. The Vassal is a great support solo that gives me a lot more flexibility with what my warlocks can do within a given turn. I haven't had a chance to use him yet in a battle but I would like to get another heavy warjack to try fielding him with.

This has been a project I have been thinking about for around a year now. Whilst rummaging through an old book shop hidden deep in the English countryside I stumbled upon rules for Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay. Upon buying the book and reading it at home I discovered something I had previously not known about the Warhammer world: that there are Gods of Law as opposites to the Gods of Chaos. This obscure and long-forgotten lore point piqued my interest and has been rattling inside my head for quite some time now.
A few months ago I kit-bashed a test model which I like but it seems to be missing something I can't quite put my finger on. Perhaps his armour is just not distinct enough from the dark elf/eldar pieces I used, that he is lacking in 'uniqueness'? Perhaps. For now I have left the project to stew over in my mind until I get some new ideas for these Warriors of Order, I just thought you might like to see this test-mini.

I am very, much a Tolkien purist and I did enjoy the Desolation of Smaug. There were however one or two moments I felt were pointless additions. The biggest disappointment however was the decision to use a CGI Bolg at the last minute when they had already filmed Conan Stevens as a live action Bolg that looked far superior. I'm not saying Bolg didn't look good in the film. I thought he looked suitably creepy and evil as any son of Azog should. However I think he totally lacked the brutal and badass look that the scrapped live action Bolg had.
