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

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.

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)

Drakwald Carnalites Minotaur WIP

Hey all.l,

I'm back today with the first WIP for my Carnalites. As somewhat of a tester for the team I picked the Minotaur as he has both armour and skin/fur that can be translated across the team.
