Battle Report: Warhammer FB 8th Ed. – Skaven vs Chaos Dwarfs (2000 points)

Finally! After quite some time, next battle report is coming your way! The thing is, June and July will be pretty busy months for me.  Load of work and weekend excursions. And there’s no way I can play, paint or write as much as I would like to.  To be honest, I’m again in hotel right now (Vienna this time), and as nobody will bother me at weekend with any work related issues, I grabbed this opportunity, sat down and started to write next post for my blog. And as said at the start – battle report. Good old Warhammer Fantasy Battle. Getting back to 8th edition after a while. And I have the coolest opponent possible for my Skaven Army – Chaos Dwarfs (using Legion of Azgorgh rules from Forgeworld’s Tamurkhan book). I find Chaos Dwarfs as one of the most fascinating army to play or face against.  I started to collect Chaos Dwarfs myself (with intention to made 5th edition army list though), so this battle was pretty exciting event for me. Hope …

Battle Report: Malifaux – Neverborn (Lilith) vs Arcanists (Kaeris)

In recent post I presented impressions I had from my first games of Malifaux. My final overall performance (without mentioning the final results;) was, let’s say, at least mediocre. Learning the rules, abilities and action – it all will take time to get it right. …but I wasn’t discouraged at all. Quite opposite. I wanted more. Opportunity occurred few days after ‘Hunt for Soulstone’ event, when I had the chance to stand against official Henchman – Rafał, and his Arcanists. It may was like thrown in at the deep end, but what a hell! There is no better way to learn the game, than by getting heavy beating. No new models on my side – Lilith and Pandora with some additions, but my options are still limited. I will get to painting Malifaux soon, and my faction will grow, but for now – it is what it is. We played 50 Soulstones game and we used new Strategies and Schemes Pool. Deployment: Flank Strategy: Guard The Stash Schemes: Convict Labor, Take Prisoner, Leave Your Mark, …

My first Pulp City game – Virgo vs Xenobi

Few weeks ago I had the pleasure to play my first game of Pulp City, awesome skirmish game with super-heroes vs villains wickedness in its core. No, really, this is true old school comic book action located in the world of miniatures. Episode One. September 2015 I interviewed Maciej Żylewicz, master mind behind Pulp City. We talked for some time, and we arranged demonstration game, so I could learn the mechanics and feel the game by myself. Unfortunately, because of the quite busy schedule, we weren’t able to find suitable date to meet and play (October 2015 I was leaving Poland for few months). Once I got back in March 2016, I was eager and happy to give Pulp City one more try. Yeah, this time we made it. I played Pulp City. Hell yeah! Pulp City. What on earth exactly is it? Totally reasonable question. Pulp City is not worldwide well known miniature game, so I can imagine many of the readers are not familiar with it. Pulp City might not be ‘big player’ …

Battle Report: Warhammer Fantasy Battle 5th Ed. – Skaven vs Dwarfs (2000 points)

Another battle report coming your way! And I’m back to The Old World and good old 5th edition of Warhammer Fantasy Battle once again. The battle – my Skaven vs Remo’s Dwarfs – 2000 points. If any of the rules, skills, magical items or simply anything is unclear, just ask. I am more than willing to answer all questions about 5th edition. This battle was really special for me. I had quite a break from WHFB in general, and even longer from Herohammer (as sometimes 5th edition is called), so it was big reunion for me. Remo came to Warsaw from Opole (300 km away) to attend to Warhammer Fantasy tournament the next day, so we grabbed this opportunity to play the battle. I was speed painting Plague Monks for entire two weeks, just to be able to use them in the battle. So, please ignore their bright green hoods – they will get proper look any time soon. I promise:) The battle took place in Bunkier Hobby Store in Warsaw. Perfect place for battles. …

Battle Report: Warhammer 40k – Blood Angels vs Dark Angels (1500 points)

It’s been some time since the last battle report I wrote and I must say, I really missed that:). The next battle – Warhammer 40000 Blood Angels vs Jan’s Dark Angles 1500 points was part of our local narrative campaign – Fading Suns of Corinth Sector. First of the series of 6 to 8 battles. The story so far: Ancient race of Necrons set up their mysterious machinery that require massive amounts of power. Star after star was drained of the energy to fuel up the device. Mystery of fading  suns of Corinth caught attention of wise men from all over Empire. Several Space Marines chapters were sent to investigate. Greenskins followed them, hoping for  good fight…and Chaos… they have their own secret agenda there… Scenario My Blood Angels faced Dark Angels in the first turn of the campaign. 1500 points. Battle Forged Armies. Blood Angels defend in this battle. 50% of the army set up normally in the deployment zone. Second half is in the reserves and enter form the second turn with usual …

Battle Report: Warhammer 40k – Blood Angels vs Eldars (1000 points)

In last post I wrote how I got to Fantasy ‘N Games Store in Jakarta, Indonesia. Really cool place with great community. If I can only had time, probably I could have played three battles, or maybe more. Unfortunately I arranged my time there so poorly , so I had only one free day to visit the stores, so therefore I was able to play only one game. So. The game: Warhammer 40k. Opponent: Gerald and his Eldars. My army: personal detachment of Blood Angels (Sanguinary Priest, Tactical Squad and Terminator Squad) plus some local Blood Angels borrowed from Aldo, local gamer (many thanks!, you are The Boss!). So, it’s time for next Game of Travel battle report, straight from Jakarta. Background Brother Gamaliel was badly wounded during the battle on planet Baan consumed by dark forces of Chaos, but he managed to get to last evacuation transport from this wicked place before its destruction. His last task in As.S1.A sector was to get rid of aliens from the planet designated as JK001 on the …

Battle Report: Warhammer 40k – Blood Angels vs Chaos Space Marines (750 points)

Last week I’ve visited Battlefield Bangkok store in Thailand. Great place and great people are working there! After short conversation via Facebook, they arranged the battle against Chaos Space Marines for me. Jack, one of the employees from the store was about to be my opponent. We agreed to play 750 points battle. I used, as always, my two travelling squads of Blood Angels (one Tactical and one Terminators) plus Sanguniary Priest. This time I managed to paint them a little bit. Still, loots of work to do, but at least you can see red on the table and that’s progress. I borrowed few Dark Angles models from the store cabinet to complete my Army list. Really, appreciate that – I’m really grateful for possibility of borrowing models from store collection. Thank you guys! Background Story The time has come. The heresy is about to be purged. Exeteminatus has been ordered for planet of Baan. Several cults of Chaos were detected,  infiltrating local society for decades spreading the rot on the living flesh of Imperium …
