This is where I can celebrate my war gaming hobby.
Cowboys and Indians part 3
Here is the report of the third game. In this game my Indian's had a grudge against Thomas's Texas Rangers. We had tracked them back to an old church and were now ready to take our revenge and resolve old grudges.
We tried to line up so that most of the people in the church didn't have any shots out of the windows.
Here are my Indian musketeers lined up in the trees. Unfortunately we had been trained in musketry in the Storm Trooper academy, either that or the white folks had sold us faulty muskets. I don't think we hit the side of the church all game.
Thomas had two rifle equipped sharpshooters in the tower and all his pistol equipped rangers in the church. The first shot of the riflemen took out one of the Indian shooters.
All the rangers are hiding under the windows
The Rangers make a break out of the side of the church and start attacking the Indians with bows.
The Indians reposition into the building. My chosen warriors tried to climb the ladder but at half speed and failing the first climbing test that looked like a bad job.
In the end the Indians had managed to inflict one wound all game and lost 5 models so we bailed out the back of the building and ran for the hills.
Its October so with everyone getting ready for Halloween I thought I would make a Vampire warband for Frostgrave. Recently risen from her crypt, my vampire and some followers, there is a Templar a Blood Merchant (very important) and some cultists The archer is lurking around the corner On the other side of the river my Man at arms is leading the infantryman a thug and a thief to claim the treasures on that side. The Vampire doesn't get an apprentice but one of the soldiers can activate in the apprentice phase and lead troops. Here we are advancing between some houses and into the first objective The right flank team secure their first treasure while the archer looks on and the treasure further down the river. With a group of soldiers you can move faster than an apprentice would While the thief unlocks the treasure the rest of the warband races down the riverbank towards another treasure. Thomas's thief swam across the river and is now trying to unlock the treasure with frozen f
Since my Saga game last weekend I have been painting a unit of mercenary warriors, they can be either Sons of Death or Vagrant Warriors. This gives me a hard hitting unit of expendable mercenaries who can take out an enemy linchpin unit probably at the expense of their own lives. I have also been finishing off my unit of Crusaders. These are devout warriors of the Emperor and it purely coincidental that they look like gladiators released from the pits to fight for the Inquisition. I also got a figure of Inquisitor Eisenhorn. I have started work on him. I need to find a suitable model for the Daemonhost Cherubael who is one of the last of Eisenhorn's companions now that he has been declared diabolis and expelled from the inquisition. I have tried painting the eyes on these models and it is hard work. I definitely think that painting the face and eyes early in the model is the way to go if you want to do it. Then, if you make a mistake its easy to correct without dest
On Saturday I played Thomas and his Enchanter warband. We played the Mausoleum scenario where we find an ancient gravesite guarded by Skeletons. My Thief is trying to unlock the treasure. He is obviously confused by the fact its a book. My Apprentice looks on with disgust and tries to motivate the Thief. No, No, turn it the to the left, no the other left. My Wizard Mind Controlled one of the Skeltal guardians and caused it to attack another. While the Skeletons were distracting each other my Infantryman smashed the enemy skellie to bits. Everyone raced forwards to the treasures. My Man at Arms supported by an Infantryman cover around the left hand side of the tower. Thomas didn't like my soldiers looking at his wizard so blocked off the hole with a stone wall. All this noise has attracted some wild dogs who start coming towards Thomas's team. My Thug picks up a treasure after the thief had unlocked it. My Wizard then transposed him with the skeleton and the Skeleton ran off to
