Battle Report: Warhammer Fantasy 5th ed. Skaven vs Dogs of War (2000 points)

In last few days I  had two battles of Warhammer Fantasy Battle. Saturday I’ve played good old Herohammer (WHFB 5th edition) – 2000 points battle against Dogs of War, and Monday I’ve played WHFB 8th edition – 1500 points vs Orcs and Goblins. I had awesome time playing those battles and I honestly I can’t decide which battle was better. Well, maybe first one, because I won that:)  But still had great game against those Greenskins. I know Andrzej, Dogs of War player from Oldhammer.pl – Polish site associating players of all WHFB editions (except Age of Sigmar). And Dogs of Wars in 5th edition had really cool Army Book and awesome, really awesome miniatures. So this battle were exceptional. Do you remember Dogs of War? Regiments of Renown of Tilea and other lands? Mercenaries for hire are not available any more, but 5th and 6th edition were full of different types of units. Pikemen, Ogres, Dwarf Slayers pirates, Bearmen, Birdmen…and many more! Real class act! And now I had the pleasure for the very …

Battle Report: Warhammer Fantasy Battle 8th Ed. Skaven vs Wood Elves (1250 points)

Wow! Finally! Breakthrough! After 4 battles lost in the row I managed to achieve victory against Wood Elves. I’ve adjusted my army a little (in other words: I get rid of the traitors in my Skaven horde:) and, look at that, I won! To be honest – I’m happy, but first of all I feel relief. The pressure was growing with every next lost game – and now, I think it’s going to be much easier. I arranged the battle some time ago with my friend Jasiek from our local Warsaw Warhammer Facebook group – I was quite anticipating this one. I must say, Wood Elves were always kind of the mystery for me. I barely know the Army Book and their rules, and I’ve played against them, maybe 2-3 times. So, after this clash – I learned quite a few things about Wood Elves – lesson taken and remembered… Ok, enough about me. Let me take you to the story… Short summary – Lord Quiksqueek and his struggle for glory About few months ago …

Battle Report: Warhammer Fantasy Battle 8th Ed. Skaven vs Orcs & Goblins (1500 points)

…and another battle is behind me. And what can I say… the traitors are everywhere. Lord Quiksqueek was defeated. Again.;) …but let me start slowly from the very beginning. I’ve arranged the battle trough Polish Warhammer Fantasy Battle forum – Border Princes with Piotrek (he plays Orcs and Goblins). We supposed to play in the beginning of July, but due to some unexpected events we were forced to re-schedule the battle until last Thursday. The battle for 1500 points when I finally will be able to play me second freshly finished Doomwheel and try out how exactly Assassin is making out in battlefield conditions. We played in Bunkier Store, here in Warsaw, where there is nice table available with plenty of terrain pieces. Background Story Remember Grey Seer Quiksqueek and his miserable fate? How he have lost battle after battle after battle? He was in continuous disgrace. He could not show his face to Lords of Decay, unless he will do something big, something praiseworthy. Something worth the story that will be repeated by small …

Battle Report: Warhammer Fantasy 5th ed. Skaven vs Empire (2000 points)

Yeah! I’ve finally made it! I have played the big epic battle of old Warhammer Fantasy Battle 5th edition. I was trying to make an appointment with few of my friends for some nice game, but every freaking time there was some thing on the way… …but finally after all these weeks, I’ve  managed to arrange the date with my old friend Matheo, who is playing The Empire. We both were starting from 5th edition of WHFB, which is sometimes called right now – Herohammer (overpowered characters with even more overpowered magical items were able to annihilate all armies in close combat – there were times…) and we have big sentiment to the game. I have begun my adventure with miniature wargaming in 1994 (more or less) and 4th edition Warhammer Fantasy Battle was my first game system.  In two years we had 5th edition and from now on miniatures and games started to be serious business for me;). I got deeply involved in this for many,  many years. So, this battle was for me …

Battle Report – Wolsung: Ash and Oak vs The Inventors

Last week I had great weekend in Gdańsk, north of Poland, right on the coast of Balitc Sea. Despite the weather conditions I had wonderful time there. As always, when I visit some new place I try to contact and meet local wargaming community…but this time all was exceptional… When me and my wife have confirmed the exact date of our visit at Baltic Sea, I got this idea to write an e-mail to Micro Art Studio, producer of Wolsung Steampunk Skirmish Game, which HQ is located in Gdynia (it’s very close to Gdańsk) – all in the same metropolitan area. I could not missed that chance to visit them – being so near. Imagine my surprise I got positive response and they invited me to Micro Art Studio and agree for small interview with the boss (I even conducted two interviews, but about this later:)… …I also got the opportunity to play small game of Wolsung with one of the game creators  – Łukasz Perzanowski. Oh, I got super exited! In fact, we have …

Battle Report: Warhammer Fantasy Battle 8th Edition – Skaven vs Ogre Kingdoms ( 1250 points)

Age of Sigmar has begun finally. Some are happy, some are not – and some – like me – don’t specially care. As long as I’ll be able to play previous editions I’m OK with everything:) And, hey, maybe someday I’ll try AoS – maybe it’s fun too. Who knows? At the moment other stuff is on my mind… Stuff like, for example, the battle I’ve played last Friday against Ogre Kingdoms. Super entertaining battle against Maciek’s Ogres – 1250 points. Well played game – had it’s twists and turns and it the result was unresolved for few turns. I had super fun evening and I hope I could repeat the battle against Ogres someday ( tough guys…really, really hard to handle with…). Unfortunately I messed up with my camera’s settings so the photos have not satisfactory quality, but I’ve done my best Photoshop work with them to save the day. I regret that but there is no other way, and I was really feel like writing the report from this actual battle. So, any …

Battle Report: Warhammer Fantasy – Skaven vs Skaven 1200 points

I waited for this moment quite a some time. My very first battle of Warhammer Fantasy with all miniatures in the army painted by myslef. No, really – I collect/paint and play almost 20 years (with long break, but still), and I haven’t play with the army twhere all minis are painted (of course, I don’t count those situations when I played at some tournaments and all my army was quick drybrushed for purpose of battle – that was obvious cheating;). My Skaven army is about 1200 points right now, so it’s not much, but it’s a good start. It took me one year and a half to complete all miniatures. Not all is done like it should be – proper basing is still necessary, arranging some cool movement trays and two banners to be painted, but let’s be honest – the most difficult part is done:). I’ve presented my army in previous post. The first battle I was about to play was against my friend Michał and his… Skaven army. Hmm, that was unusual …

Warhammer Fantasy Battle Report: Siege of Ancient Dwarf Stronghold

About two weeks ago I had a pleasure to meet the guys from Warhammer Fantasy Battle Club in Tuxtla Gutiérrez, Mexico. Read all about it here. …but what most important – we played awesome battle, and now, as I promised I’m giving you right now the very first battle report on Game of Travel! (too bad I couldn’t posted earlier, but for last week I was super busy…having vacations with my wife in Belize. No working, painting or writing – only free time:). It’s not exactly the report I wanted to present here, especially for the first time. I had few doubts about it – to post it or not. Finally I decide to share it, but let me explain what I had on my mind: My idea was, to put only reports on battles played only with FULLY painted armies. Playing battles with unpainted armies are big no, no for me – I’d like my opponent also has painted miniatures, but sometimes reality and rules have to be bended.  In Tuxtla there were no …
