In two previous blogposts I told the sorry tale of a small village in Altdorf. First the town got overrun by living dead, and later the village was reclaimed by valiant knights from Bretonnia. The latter decided to stay there after their victory and rebuilt the village including some minor defenses.
Some keen followers of my blog might have noticed the trick I performed with my scenery. In between battles I slightly moved all scenery to the left. The cemetary and windmill from the first battle disapeared from the table and more details of the village appeared. Now for this third battle in row I did not change the coordinates but went forward in time by adding some buildings and fortifications. The Bretonnian tents, village fountain and defensive stakes made the town more "knightly".
A loud bellowing announced the approach of a foul horde... Beastmen! Beastlord Gorthor Broadhead shouted his battle commands and many hooves stormed towards the first buildings of the village. The Bretonnian soldiers were taken by surprise but quickly rallied to the defense.
A Knights of the Realm unit took the main road onto the center of the battlefield and charged a Beastherd unit, soon the nearby unit of Chaos Marauders (a.k.a. Herdkin) joined the combat engagement.
Meanwhile the other Beastherd unit and more worryingly the Minotaurs unit moved forward. The human general ordered his mounted Squires to leap around the village square trying to find an exposed flank of the enemy units. A small unit of Men-at-Arms moved towards the Knights to be ready for action when needed.
The mounted Squires managed to slay the nearby Beastherd, ignoring a unit of Chaos Marauders. The horseback riders in turn were charged by the Minotaurs. The result was devastating for the Squires, but they managed to take down one Minotaur (and allmost another one, but the Beastmen player choose to fall back and discard remaining hits).
In the fight between Knights znd beastmen only a handfull of Chaos Marauders remained. That's where Gorthor Broadhead entered the combat engagement... to his loss. The beastmen's general fell and his remaining force fled into the woods.
Another valiant stand by the Bretonnians!

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.
