Away with boring miniature paintjobs, I want to play a game! So I draped my desk in green cloth and started constructing an nice little village somewhere in the province of Altdorf. There were stables nearby, a windmill present and offcourse they had an old cemetary in the neighbordhood. Now that's exactly where things went wrong for the innocent villagers... Vampire Count "Red Duke" raised a small army of shambling zombies and raised some more when in the vicinity of our subject village. Deep in the woods they could hear the eerie howling of a pack of Dire Wolves running towards the cottages.
No worries, an Empire brigade bravely envelopped the village in order to defend it and to destroy this evil undead threat. A brigade of Halberdiers entered the battlefield by road while a Cavalry unit shielded by a unit of Crossbowmen protected the willage square. The crossbows immediatelly started shooting their deadly bolts towards the horde of Dire Wolves, succesfully halting them.
The wolves seemed hesitant to blindly storm through an avalanche of steeltipped bolts. This actions shows that the Warmaster rules for shooting does not inflict many casualties but can be tactically positionned to halt certain enemy units.
The small brigade of Halberdiers charged the incomming Zombie unit and hacked into the undead round after round, gradually gaining ground and capturing the center of the battlefield.
With a little help from the Empire General the Halberdiers managed to hack down the first wave of skeletons in close combat.
The Vampire Lord himself tried to tip the balance by joining combat. With succes! He killed the Empire General rendering the entire Empire army useless and filled with fear. The village is lost. Victory for the Undead! Soon the place will be crawling with undead servants...
In this blog I'll talk about various miniature games. Custom miniatures and minor conversions are my favorite pastime. I'll cover scenery making and painting too. The WIP you'll see here is all about Necromunda, Epic 40,000, Warhammer Fantasy 5th Edition, Warmaster and Warhammer 40K 3rd Edition.
