Here are some more pictures from our Warmaster project, On my painting table now is Native ogres that will provide strong allies against the cold blooded menace.

Peter has been really busy and the Lizardmen horde has grown exponentially. Rumor is that cohorts of temple guards and saurus warriors are preparing for war.

A "small" detour


Greetings,

Seeing as Games workshop have now decided to kill of Warmaster me and my friend Peter decided to get two Armies done before eBay costs skyrocket away. Both of us have always been fascinated with the imagery of Warmaster and the grandness of large 10mm fantasy armies.

The first Terico is moving forward to counter the threat


We set Lustria as our theme, and Peter was lucky to get three big lots of Lizardmen right at the beginning. I went with Pendrake miniatures and doing dogs of war with the Spanish conquistadors and Tericos as inspiration.

More pictures of miniatures and terrain will come up soon so until then take care.

Skirmish in the Riverlands


Salute,

Here comes the pictures and a small battlereport from our first real game. We used lord of the rings spg with some modifications and the game flowed very well really giving the feel of a medieval skirmish.

All is quite in the holdfast of a minor tully noble.
The Rebel forces under house Stark had as their mission to occupy a village in the riverlands and stop Lannister forces from taking the holdfast.  The armies were almost the same except for house stark having Baratheon pike and the Lannisters having more heavy cavalry.


Baratheonpike and Aryn crossbowmen take hold of the holdfast courtyard

Inside the manor Tully billmen are looking for loot under the command of stark noble

Stark and Aryn billmen heading towards the forest to hold up the Lannisters, two stark heavy cavalrymen follow

Stark and Tulle longbowmen prepares an arrowstorm to great the Lannisters

The Lannister froces arrayed, the majority of the infantry is to force the ford and then head straight to the holdfast by the forest

Nobles fron house Serret, Tyrell and Lannister backed up by squires and hedge knights prepare to move forward

The tranquility is broken by the trumpet signalling everyone to move forward.

the stark forces break through the forces capturing the Lannisters by suprise

In the confusion and chaos many billmen and even a mounted hedge knight drown in the small stream 

After heavy fighting drawn out by the heroic last stand of a Stark noble which resulting in large casualties, the survivors move into the forest to shield themselves from the relentless arrow storm  
The surviving hedge nights move to the windmill in a bold flanking move while the stark archers succumb to combined fire from Lannister longbow and Dayne crossbows  

The surviving Tully noble tries to climb the holdfast wall but fails and is chased down by vengeful Lannister billmen, cutting him to pices while his men watch from the wall.

The final assault begins, the hedge knights finish their flanking move mopping up any stark stragglers outside of the walls. Seeing the Lannisters climbing over into the holdfast the Baratheon pike losses heart and retreats.
Very fun game. it stated with the Stark side having the initiative and inflicting serious injuries on my Lannisters. But Peter had miss judge the amount of troops so my superior numbers at the stream wore him down and thats what won the game for me.

We had some heroic moments with a billman clearing the wall himself or when a stark noble was surrounded by a knight, his squire, two foot nobles and 6 billmen but refused to yield.

I look forward to next tiem when both side will have been reinforced and more of the village will be done.

Steady wins the race

Greetings,

Finally after pushing this ahead of me for a long time I can finally launch fantasy/medieval part of this blog project. The plan is to do: Game of thrones in 28mm inspired by the wars of the roses, 10mm Warmaster featuring landsknecht agains lizardmen and maybe in the future 28mm landsknechts.


Just today we played a 45 against 45 men medieval bash on my nearly done table. The rules we use are slightly modified Lord of the rings SBG rules. The scenario was the Lannister/Tyrell alliance (me) attacking a riverlands village defended by a main force of Starks backed up Tully militia and Baratheon mercenary pike.

State of the wargaming table:

  • Trees- Basicly done need to finish some bases
  • Hedges - Basicly done, just need to paint base edges
  • Holdfast - Done
  • River- needs to be repainted and get added details
  • Brigde - will soon be done
  • Fields - Done
  • Roads - need minor work
  • Cottages two of four done
  • Windmill done
  • Need to find blacksmith any suggestions would be helpful
  • Villagers done
  • Wagons one out of two done
