The Revenge of Joris Von Borson...A Warhammer Scenario


I posted these up on the Oldhammer Facebook group earlier so I thought I might as well share them here. This is the result of having to cover someone else's lesson and a need to entertain myself. The pages are fairly self explanatory. I'll apologise in advance for spelling, grammar and poor handwriting but I just pumped it out in an hour and I have very little desire to redraft in this heat!

Have fun and let me know if you decide to play it (obviously you change any of the forces to nay figures you wish, goes with out saying).


There are no stats so you can use what ever version of WH you fancy (or any other fantasy battle game for that matter) I'm sure you'll be able to figure out how to categorise the different levels of heroes. You're clever people.

You can make a new friend but you can't make and old one....: AoS and WFB3 in the same weekend

50 Renown - Lord of Plagues, 4 Blight Kings and a Chaos Hound

Once in a blue moon the planets align and lady luck smiles upon you and you manage to squeeze two games sessions into the same weekend. Such was the circumstances that I found myself in this very weekend. And on sunday I fell asleep on the soff and snored like a loon despite my two year old trying to use my ear as a pencil pot. But thats the price we must pay!

Games Workshop 'Not Daft' Shock!


So you know that thing when you were a kid.

That feeling of being sucked into a strange land.

The feeling of needing to delve and discover what it's all about.







It might have been triggered by a glimpse at an older cousins collection of miniatures, a flick through a strange magazine, stumbling into a shop full of weird books and little packs of toy soldiers or simply the older boys playing RPG's at school and wondering how Advanced the AD&D actually got.

Necroquisimeddon


Sometimes adult life throws you a sweet, overhand, sitter of a catch. My Mrs went off with the boys to visit a mate in Brum which left me with the girls who went to bed sensibly after Dr Who. Antipixi was left hanging by a couple of his friends and his mother-in-law came round to entertain his wife. Hey-presto, we have a game night! Antipixi jumped in his jeep and hotfooted round to the Whiskey Lounge and we threw down some min's and dice and had a go at Shadow Wars Armageddon!!!

Boss Level Villain


I've been in the painting doldrums recently, probably a combination of work stress and restless evening toddlers but I'm starting to force myself to pick up the brushes and try and get stuff done. This guy is the result of several fitful sessions.

Starchild (not the P-Funk kind)

Set THIS going and settle in.....

Buried inside Realm of Chaos : Lost and the Damned is one of the mores interesting and obscure bits 40K lore. The relationship between the Emperor, The Starchild, the Illuminati and the Sensei. Now, I've talked about some of this before HERE so I'm not going to repeat myself but I document I've never see before popped up on the Book of Faces this morning that cleared up some of the inconsistencies and vagueness that are in LotD section.

Something green and smelly in Kislev

I played this game a couple of weeks ago but have only just gotten round to blogging about it (coursework season, I'm sure you understand). 

I hotfooted it up to Nottingham just before the end of the Easter Holiday and introduced Linz to Dragon Rampant.

Eternal Stats!



As you might have seen if you read the Scale creep blog, this years Summer Wipster and Friends game at BOYL17 is going to be based on the Eternal Champion series by Michael Moorcock. I'm not going to repeat myself so if yo haven't read the idea over you go and read that first. The rest of us will still be here when you get back.

Recent Daubings


As the daylight returns to the world so does the enthusiasm to pick up the brushes and the paints and get stuff painted.

The O-Team


"In M40.972, a crack commando unit was sent to a death world for a crime they almost certainly did commit. These Ogryn promptly ate all the deadly animals and plants on the planet and were taken under the wing of a friendly Commissar. Today, still used by the Imperium, they survive as soldiers that cost a fortune (in food bills and damages).
If you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find them, maybe you should send in.....The O Team."

Wifferrp

I must be getting old. The flu (or just a nasty cold) has had me in it's grip for well over a fortnight now and it's refusing to let go. Bastard. As a result I haven't felt like doing much painting recently so I haven't got any cool new toys to show. Fear not, however as there are some in the pipeline. I just need to restart my painting mojo.

"So if you've got nothing to show us why are you posting?"

Good question dear reader. I occasionally like to blether on in posts about the things that do or have inspired me about Warhammer and it's derivatives and  I've had the third of the holy triumvirate wandering around in the back of my head for some time so I thought I'd take this opportunity to have a verbal wander about.

As a young lad my first contact with all this fantasy game malarkey was with good old Dungeons and Dragons, I've talked before about the influence dragon magazine had on me but it was actually playing D&D with friends in the maths room at lunch times when we were probably 11 or 12 which started us down this long and dark path. We soon graduated to Runequest (3rd edition as published by GW) which was our mainstay for sometime before we moved on to one of the holy Trinity. WFRP.
