    [6e WFB] The March on Caerdydd: one and a half battle reports

    Circumstances intervened and I couldn't actually make it to the sixth edition revival tourney in Upminster, but I did manage a couple of games at the South Wales Gaming Centre in Cardiff last weekend. Both 2000 points, against Chaos (Breakthrough) and High Elves (Capture). Cracking games with...

    Sixth Edition List Wrangling (nostalgia tournament)

    In a few months’ time I’m going to Upminster to play a sixth edition WFB tournament and it’s… unlikely… that I’ll get my Tomb Kings done in time, so it’s time to break the Vampire Counts out again. The holy word demands a 500 point Border Patrol force for the first round, and a 1500 point force...

    The Realms shake, and I have risen...

    ... what's all this bloody racket, then? Can a man not get some SLEEP around here? Anyway. Hello yes welcome. I've been around for a while but what with new editions of AoS and Warhammer Fantasy Role Play and Vampire: the Masquerade all on the horizon it feels like a good time for fresh...

    The First Battle of Point LeStroud (5e - 1500 points - VC vs. HE - Tournament Battle)

    Von's Middlehammer Musings

    Every so often I stumble across something that makes me think of the good times. It might be "seeing my dusty old Vampire Counts army in the display case" or it might be "playing some of that Total War thing and saving the World That Was from total destruction like the unsung hero I am". Often...

    Lord Ruthven Rethought (2400 MSU/Hordes)

    I've hit a small snag with revamping my Vampire Counts. Many of my old, lovingly kitbashed infantry are falling apart, and actually fall even further apart when I try to repair them. After the third Skeleton's arm snapped off when I tried to stick its hand back on, and the fourth Black Knight...

    Lord Ruthven Reborn (2500, experimental)

    Ignore this, the stupid army builder thing doesn't like me anyway.

    Reviving Lord Ruthven?

    I have a confession to make. Despite going on record as one who holds Warhammer's eighth edition in low esteem and less regard, I maintain a half-arsed, nascent interest in the system and the antics of those who play it. I still read battle reports, I still read blogs, and I'm currently...

    H: Lahmian, Ghouls, Corpse Carts - W: monies, wolves

    As a consequence of foolish trading I have too much stuff. You want to purchase some of my stuff, don't you? Of course you do. What I Have - Lahmian Vampire on foot/mounted on Nightmare - this one - (NIB) - 10 GW Ghouls - built, painted - 30 Mantic Ghouls - one Ghast (big claw and dagger...

    Lord Ruthven's Refusal (1000 points vs. Skaven)

    This is Simon. Simon is my loyal rules monkey for the Pathfinder RPG, and a competent tactical-combat GM for anything d20 based. He is also one of the nicest, most generous blokes I know, and genuinely tolerant of little incidents like booking a game two weeks in advance, then forgetting and...

    Lord Ruthven's Return (1500 points vs. Empire)

    After a month of undignified shilly-shallying about where I try to remember how to play Warhammer, here's a battle report. Neither of the players involved have played much Eighth Edition. Edd hates it because he hates changing his army list, but his old one doesn't work too well any more; I like...

    Lord Ruthven's Roster

    I'm not really a fan of pick-up games, or indeed of points matches; in an ideal world some chaps who want to play a game can sit down and discuss scenario, forces and so on beforehand, negotiating the objective and style of play like civilised adults. For a variety of reasons, some more valid...

    The Order of the Black Cross: Resurrections and Recollections

    They stood on the battlements together, the glowing stone between them; otherwise alone. Clarimonde gazed out across the Hunger Wood, swords crossed at her straight back; Romauld shivered at her side, less certain that the most dangerous things abroad tonight were the two of them. In halting...

    The Order Musters...

    Once, in the distant mists of time, I had a Vampire Counts army. It wasn't very good, but it was mine. I was very attached to it, it was the first WFB army I really put my heart and soul into and made an effort to personalise, and I'd played it for something like four years when I was forced...

    Representing Heinrich Kemmler - WITHOUT going homebrew

    Okay. Replaced my Vampire Counts army book yesterday. Geared up. Ready to go. Time to talk about what I actually want to do with this project. I harbour ambitions - unseemly ambitions - based around the Lichemaster. You see, one of the things that made me get back into WFB was the desire...

    Here comes the new Von, same as the old Von...

    Hey. Been a while, hasn't it? Last time I was here I was trading out my Sylvanians for Warriors of Chaos. Didn't work out well - boring, clumsy army with a tactical range as narrow as the fruitless modelling possibilities were broad. Neither did attempting to play in the tourney-mad local...

    Psst. Wanna buy some books?

    If anyone's interested in a proverbial blast from the past, I have the fifth and sixth edition Vampire Counts army books sitting on my shelf and no army to attach them to. They're in pretty nifty condition and they're nice artifacts to own if you want to know what the VC were like back in the...

    3000-odd points of VC for sale

    These are the times that try men's souls... I've been playing my current Vampire Counts army for four and a half years. They were good years. I've seen the Army of Sylvania come and go, mourned the loss of crossbows and celebrated the death of Bloodlines. Now, though, it's seeming like I've...
