    The Chronicles of the House of Valda - A New World

    "Can you hear me Amadeus?" "I always hear you. I have heard your voice in every breathe of the wind since we stopped Nagashs return. I heard you in the screams of the Seven as they died. I felt your contentment as the Council saves the world. I felt your hand on my shoulder as I stepped in to...

    The Lichemasters Journal - Supplemental Piece to the Bloodline War

    As I pen this final journal entry before my entry into Sylvania, I find myself erring on the side of caution. I am finding myself apprehensive about marching to war with beings more ancient than I, who have had more time and experience to study the things I have studied, and those who fight a...

    Wraith Unit - Not Skirmishers anymore?

    Correct me if I am wrong on this but nowhere in the entry for the Wraiths rare entry can I see that they are actually skirmishers. This is quite a radical change from what it was obviously but is this as intended or an oversight? I am begging to be proved wrong on this one.

    'Counts as'

    Greetings one and/or all, I am planning my new VC like any sane person will be and I have decided I don't want the monotony of painting up hordes of skeletons. I do, however, love painting zombies. Basically I am planning on using empire militia with zombie bits as 'counts as' skeletons -...

    Failure - Supplement to Chapter 54

    "You have failed me beyond measure Amadeus Valda." The voice stung through the mind of the black robed figure of the Lord of Schwarzhelm. He physically convulsed as it bit into his mind like searing flames. The voice was instantly recognisable as that of Korhedron, the dark elf that acted as...

    Hi, I'm new, where's Team Edward?

    Seriously, I bet you clicked the link for an assanine reference to Twilight? Get out my thread ya hippy! Not so much fresh blood as freshly awoken from a long slumber. 8th edition electrically jolts me back, so in the spirit of things this is a thread to say one simple thing. Hello.

    The End of a true Era

    The stench of stale vomit stained the floor of Castle Schwarzberg as Amadeus Valda realised with complete and utter conviction that he was dying. The sensation was nothing like he had expected it to be, but nothing about the entire Vampire Council had been quite as he had expected it to be...

    TVC needs a tangent!

    Hey everyone, I feel that the constant battle with Nagash has drained some of us of our creative energy. I think that TVC needs a minor tangent off-shoot plot to help with this - TVC fighting against a common villain, someone who is not grand. It'll help restore some creative juices to those...

    (Here's something new for you peoples who seem to have the impression I can only write Metal Gear Solid in different formats...) A single candle flickered in the chill wind of a deserts night as the sound of preparations for war were made in the city of Lahmia. The bitterness of the wind...

    Supplement to Chapter 39 - The Weeping Banshee

    A bolt of thunder danced across the sky of Sylvania as Amadeus Valda walked away from where he had met Lesa. Something about the vampress still lingered on in his mind, but he could not quite put his finger on what it was. She unsettled him immensely and he was pretty certain they had met in a...

    Fighting Combat Heavy Dwarfs

    Greetings one and all, One of the greatest banes of my warhammer existence continues to be the stunties. I have seen the Thorek Anvil Doom brigade and whilst I do not like it, it does not fill me with the dread that seeing big blocks of dwarfs with a death star unit of Hammerers with Lord...

    Here's the answer, whats the question.

    Sunlight. It burned you if you were living or dying, it warmed you if you were cold, it cheered you if your mood was bleak but could turn on with you even noticing. It was a fickle demon that everyone has to live with and it was one of the only things that would always be consistent. That, in...

    Seer no evil

    A great mixture of phlegm and blood hit the floor of Castle Schwarzberg as Valda stumbled in half beaten to death. He had been soundly defeated by Arkhan the Black and it was smarting him in place he had long thought decayed beyond measure. Frowning at the creak his door made, Valda turned in a...

    TVC - Chapter 27 - The Chase for the Crown

    Arkhan the Black must die The thought echoed through the mind of Amadeus Valda as he gave chase to the Dread Lord of Nagash. Riding on a magnificent pale horse, the wind blew through the mane of the beast and Valda's own long brown hair. They seemed to be dancing in tandem with the wind as...
