I have gotten a good start on my new Circle Orboros Hordes army for the Journeyman League at Gamer's Sanctuary. These models are a new challenge for me and I find myself really enjoying painting them. I managed to finish the official starter group set models last week and one warlock attachment. The league builds up from the starter to 35 points and I should have a pretty decent collection of models by the end. The league has really attracted a lot of players and last week every table had a Warmahordes game going. It has been a lot of fun so far. I have had more success than I thought I would when starting a new army and learning the Fury mechanic for Hordes. Here's what I have completed for painting score credit:
The Feral Warpwolf has been my MVP (MVB?) in almost every game so far. This model is also my entry for the "All Your Bases" challenge. I really like the Secret Weapon Miniatures bases and scenic leaves used for basing.
I had to re base the Argus after realizing I bought beveled and not rounded edge versions. I am pretty happy with how he came out. Something tells me I will be good at painting fur the more I work on this army.
Because I used the Two Player box starter, I got a Winter Argus instead of the regular for my second light beast. I used a water down light grey paint to use as a wash for the fur.
Last Saturday was a painting day at Gamer's Sanctuary and I got a good start on a druid wilder. I managed to finish her up this week. All the druids seem to carry these wooden weapons so this was my test model for layering on the edges. I am happy with how it came out.
This week in the league we are allowed to change casters. I picked up eKaya to run in place of pKaya with the starter beasts. I still need to paint her and her beast companion Laris.
There are three weeks left in the league. I hope to get as much hobby work done as I can to try for the Journeyman award. The last week allows for an unrestricted 35 point list and I am building up to running an eKaya tier four list.

Circle has been a lot of fun and a new challenge for me after playing Retribution for the last couple of years. I am looking forward to more Warmahordes events as it seems to be on the rise in popularity again locally. Thanks for reading!
