Warcry



I got my first Games Workshop starter box in about 20 years, last time it was the exellent game Mordheim and this time Warcry, skirmish action with mainly chaos warbaand in the Age of Sigmar.

Not realy sure way I decided to get it, but I liked what I read about it, swift and simple rules, small gaming area, lovely terrain included etc was indeed things that tippe the sacle in favour for a order.

So the last month I been totaly caught up painting Warcry terrain and minis, even got so hooked so I got a extra warband as well as some StormCaster minis as mu son David wanted to run them.

I was indeed impressed by the terrain made of quality hard plastic as well as the included minis, so much animation to them.

Below you can see the terrain, 4 Warbands (Iron Golems, Untamed Beasts, Stormcasters and Corvus Cabal as well as the 6 chaos raproryx and 6 chaos furies included in the starter box.

SPQR



Haven´t been much blogging lately, but have still painted minis and terrain, one such small project have been the new SPQR starter box from Warlord games, lots of plastics in that box.

I just added some odd minis, like the WI Druid, 12 Perry sudanese etc adn got med 2 nice forces. Yes 1,2,3 basing...

I liked the look of the rules and the basic concept, have played a couple of time but not really hooked, at least not yet.

Anyway here are some pictures of the minis I painted, first some Celts and then some Cesarian Romans, guess I´m a Rampant junky as I grouped and painted the minis in groups of 12 :)

Burrows and Badgers




Jonas, David and I had a go at Burrows and Badgers last week. I got me a few of the lovely Burrows and Badgers minis from Oathsworn miniatures at Salute erlier this year, but havent come around to paint them up untill during this summer, so it was time to test them out.


The rules are very charmy and give good games, really like the idee to make it possible for small animals to beat the big ones by the bonus for perfect scores, i.e. small animals have D4 and D6 and big ones D8 and D10 but if you roll max on your dice you may add +7 so even with a D4 you can beat a D10.

The only real drawback are that i find it hard to find my way around the rules, but I probably havent got the thought behind the layout yet... I still recomend the rules as they give very noce games with in an exellent setting.

We played two games, First Jonas against David, Jonas had a small warband of just 4 minis, but they was big... David had more a bunch of small mices under command of a Big hound. They played the Mouse-Hunt scenario and was all lured by the cunning burgler mouse Gromley.














In the Second game Jonas and I played out a scenario there my warband under command of Sheriff Frog and his Veasels hemchmen that was to protect the Kings taxes they had gathered... and they managed with their task stoping a band of no good mercernaries from stealing the Kings taxes :)
