Wyrdstone Road: Campaign Games 2,3 & 4


Hey all, 
well we've just finished games 2,3 & 4 of our Mordheim campaign, in which (to my surprise) I won all 3 games, following failed route tests by my opponent. It went a little like this;
Game 1 was Monster Hunt as taken from (I believe) the 2002 Annual, we were facing a Baby Hydra, though we proxied it for a Griffon, as we didnt have a Hydra to use lol. Anyway the board looked like this;


I was on the table edge nearest. We deployed and made a mad scramble to the hyrda. I came at it from behind as my oppenent had got there first and was suffering it wrath, at the same time he tried to outflank me with his Vampire, which after several attempts to take out my Swordsmen failed. The hyrda munched through his zombies allowing my newly aquired Champion and a group of 5 Warriors with 2 swords each, to attack, then he failed his route test, and after 3 turns take down the hydra and claim the spoils of war! Heavy Armour, Gromril Axe, 45gc, Sword, Sheild, Helmet. I bought a youngblood and equipped him with the gear. Interstingly enough before we had started play I found a torso that I had forgotten about in a box of bits I'd been given, so I made this chap!

I'm guessing the torso is from an old knight of some sort, but I thought it a really characterful piece when all pieced together, he has since had another sword fixed to his empty hand, facing downwards, there will also be flames coming from the cup on his helmet, because...well...just because really!

The second game went down like this;


The mission we played was treasure hunt, 3 wyrdstone tokens were placed on the board, I was only able to capture one whilst my opponent nabbed 2, one held by his pesky vampire. The fight I think lasted on 4 turns, with him once again failing his route test.

The final game was a street fight, this again I won after he voluntarily routed, as he wanted to keep his 5 heroes for the treasure finding after. I once again decimated him, losing no models myself. 3 victories to me! 

Not the best battle report in the world I know, but the campaign for us is now in full swing! We just need some more players and to finish that scenery! Next I'm going to do a Warband Breakdown I think, so may have that up tomorrow! I'm at full strength with my warband, 15 models, 1 Captain ,2 Youngbloods, 2 Champions, 7 Warriors and 3 Swordsmen.

Anyway, thats all for now

Start Collecting Skitarii Review

Hey all, today I'm giving my little review on the new Start Collecting Skitarii box. Firstly for a GW price of  £50 ($85) these are exceptional value, in this box set the Dunewalker is £40, Rangers/Vanguard £23.50 and the Dominus £22. Even at £50, that's a £35.50 saving. If you're like me and bought it from an online store ( Goblin Gaming for me, 20% discount and £3.90 postage, just under 50% off standalone retail price)


Scenery: Imperial Sector Buildings WIP

Hi all

Its been a while since anything new was posted on SotA which I think has been due to both myself and Zebulon having a little break from doing anything major. I've been tinkering with a few bits and pieces for the last few weeks and now find myself ready to get back into the swing of things.

So first up are the buildings from the Imperial Sector box. I was lucky enough to find this box in my local store at the old price of about £52 rather than the new £70 price. I hadn't intended to buy it but I knew I'd regret not buying it. It took me a couple of weeks to assemble the buildings which was slow by my standards (due to the decreased nature of hobby activities).

So lets get on with the pictures.


Slaughterpriest Painting Challenge

Hey all, we're back today with another of myself and Blackmane's painting challenges. Since we both picked up the shiney new version of White Dwarf, we though it fitting to do a challenge based of the Slaughterpriest that came with it. 
We have 2 weeks from today to complete the model in anyway we see fit and then we will put it up as a poll to see who the victor is! 
On a slightly related note, myself and Blackmane have both moved house in the last couple of months each gaining a hobby room/studio. This explains our lack of posts recently and should allow us both increased content for our little blog which we hope you will enjoy going forward.
Paint brushes at the ready..... GO!!
