Buildings, Games and oh, I am a wargamer!

 Okay, so continuing on with my Empire, i thought i'd go old school and make some building from cereal box card.. i was happy with the result, so i made a video on what i created. The buuildings design is basic enough that i could use it from the medieval period to probably ww2, plus wouldn't be out of place in Bree!

 My Bretons are out again, hampering the Anglo-danes who decided to pick a fight. This time i squabble over a couple of bridges.

   Finallt i was nominate by Jack Sarge for an "I am a Wargamer" video. So i filled in the challenge and completed it. The only thing i didn't do was decide on my third nominee. I though i would give the viewers a chance to put forward a wargaming channel for me to nominate. This way i get to pick through some channels, hopefully some of which i haven't come a across before.

so, see you next time... Dha weles nessa termyn!

Couple of battles and some WIP's

   Well i'm slowly catching up with my reports:

Age of the Wolf

   My Bretons charge up north and take on the Scots in the challenge.

Battle Companies

  My poor Rohan don't seem to be raising through the ranks very quickly. But at least I outnumber some Wood Eves 2-1, so this should give me a chance for some good results.

Other bits

  Currently working on my sci-fi rule set, which is becoming a bit more organised.Had another run through the game, and still enjoying the brutal system... oh yes your troops drop quick.  

A team advances through the debris in search of resources

Models by Copplestone Castings

   Finally some Empire are getting painted for my narrated campaign. I was going to use my own system but thinking about it, it may be a good way to show some War and Sorcery (fantasy War and Conquest).

Altdorf handgunners. Decided on round bases (25mm) to show not all
is lost with Age of Sigmar, that the figures can still be used for proper battles.

Until next time...

  So lets start with the final month of the campaign for Lord of the Rings! Ouch, it was a bad run for the forces of good. last month a small light glistened but this month we were beaten down a peg or to. In the North desperate times pushed us to split our forces, but our inability to win matches had sorely hurt us.... the counter-attack the forces of evil gave us were harsh and brutal. Rivendel was swarmed by Harad, while Lorien fell to the goblins.
  Though seeing the attack coming we tried to support with a cavalry banner but they where intercepted by the Easterling Cataphrakts, and defeated. 
Year 1 Month 6...

   In the South thing went better, but too late.. The blue has dwindled to naught but a few "enemy" strongholds. So with that players shook hands and we called it a day....

  The campaign system itself worked well and everyone seemed to have fun, playing some extremely unbalanced games making things feel desperate as it should.
  So what went wrong for good? To be fair, evils misunderstanding of not being able to create banner of less than 200pts royally knocked us. We lost the lands of rohan early and also miscalculated where points were. But enough of the excuses, the games we should of one were lost barring a couple of lucky games. Overall the evils forces quick actions and ability win fights beat us hands down... though we will be having a re-match for sure, ad hopefully some time for people to paint their forces so i can get some big reports in...

But in the mean time we a playing battle companies, as a vain excuse to get models painted!!

Age of the Wolf
  Here is another installment of the campaign games my Bretons are having a go at... though i have to say its seeming a bit harsh, as few players have been against such a force, plus i have the Penny special messing up the early turns of my opponent, giving a nasty combo..

  Finally a short vid just going over games i play and something i plan to start p soon.

  Until next time, dha weles!
