A magic wielding Devourer was never really my style, I always preferred the no nonsense tactic of charging into combat and grabbing victory by reducing my opponents into small lumps.
Of course that tactic did not always work, but it suited the Devourer style more than incanting a ritual or two.
I have just ordered my copy of Konflikt 47 for the rather excellent price of £17.13 from Books Etc.
This is yet another Weird War II set of rules but this time using the Bolt Action game mechanics.
So already knowing how Bolt Action pays, and liking those rules a lot anyway, this seems like a good way to get some more use out of my Secrets Of The Third Reich US Army models…and maybe even my Allies and Axis from the Dust range
The models have been created by Clockwork Goblin and I had already bought some back at a Salute show ages ago for the British Steampunk army, although I did remove the Russian star from the chest plates of the heavy infantry.
The cover to the right must have been an early concept draft of the book cover as it is not the one that Osprey/Warlord Games have gone with.
The Devourers don’t just get archers, these guys are actually artillery.
Heavily armoured artillery with exceptional range and great hitting power.
Four of these in a Dragon Rampant unit makes for a good full strength unit of heavy missile fire troopers.
Zeiren is another of the Devourer named characters that does not get to come out much in Confrontation.
It is yet another a great looking Rackham model and will likely get added into a large band of Flesh Eaters.
It has been 35 years since the last British rider won the premier motocycle racing class, a certain Barry Sheene back in 1981. Today, at a wet Brno, the rather appropriately numbered Cal Crutchlow finally put that bit of history out the back door and into the distant collective national memory.
A superbly judged tyre choice saw him slice through the field from 15th on lap one to take the lead and win by 9 seconds or so from the equally amazing Valentino Rossi.
To make the day even better, John McPhee won his first Moto3 race and Sam Lowes came second in the Moto2. The Motorcycle Olympics!
The next race is at Silverstone and I will be there in the Village Grandstand cheering the Brits and Valentino on.
Some of the cheapest Devourer models are the Voracious Warriors. These are not heavily armoured but have a good fighting ability. There are usually several of these in a 400 point Controntation warband.
In Dragon Rampant, a much larger unit of Voracious Warriors can be fielded.
The model I use the most as a leader for my Devourer pack is the Tyrant Of Vile-Tis, a big nasty mean looking beastie.
He fits in very well with the Flesh Eaters as they are all similarly armed and armoured. I have had to repair his spear a few times over the years, but that just goes to show how often he would get used.
