Journey of the Maulers: Vultures in the sky

The regulations for Corona are tightening again and the next Blood Bowl edition is just around the corner. Reason enough to put my foot down and give you a short summary of the pre-to-last game of the first season of the reformed team of the Maulers.

As usual, I used as many special rules as possible in this match and so it took place in a rpough and ready stadium. Our league reporter Mocky Python has remarked that the Blood Bowl games of ambitious teams in the lower leagues are not for a continuous broadcast, so you'll only see a highligtreel here.

Rough and Ready Stadium

Unclear Markings: The kicking team can move the center line one field forward or backward. Also, as many players as you like can be placed in the side zones.

Pizza, Beers and Frostgrave 2nd Edition

We had a gaming night on wednesday. Florian brought some fine beverages from Frankonia, and I prepared some self-made pizzas for the night.

Using the NY Pizza Dough recipe by Kenji Lopez-Alt as usual, I made a veggie pie with spelt flour for my wife, and a rustica pie with pepperoni, sausage, red onion, corn and bell pepper and a meat lover with pepperoni, beef and sausage. A proper base for some light drinking over the evening, covering Hopfengarten Bamberg Rauschkönig, Überquell World White IPA and Reckendorfer Keller-Bier.

Black Seas – Terrors of the Deep

Mantic Games just announced the Black Seas based Fantasy Spin-Off Armada, but Warlord Games already went for a bit of fantasy content for the Age of Sail game - with a set of legendary sea monsters, Terrors of the Deep.

This is a boxed set, that covers six different sea monsters casted from resin with the occasional metal bit to go along. The set includes a scenario booklet and stat cards for the six models. The booklet has the Bermuda Triangle scenario, along with the rules for the six models and a ghost ship (just repaint one of your regular vessels).

Realm of Chaos – Herdstone part I

In context of my beastmen warband I have mentioned Paul Sawyer's participation in The Tale of Four Gamers, with his chaos beastmen army. And one of the things that really caught my eye in that series, was the herdstone he build for his army (covered in the White Dwarf #221 and #222).

A miniature Odyssey – Greek stories

Now that I've written a few articles about Mortal Gods and have built an army of Hades for the Mythic expansion, I've had a few thoughts on how to introduce the system. The game is still quite young ( just released in 2019 ) and I would like to familiarize new readers with it a bit better. And what is the best way to do that? A story!

Realm of Chaos – Hooves and Fur Part XIV

Let's get ready for the remaining two miniatures of the summer project. These do not actually belong to the Hooves and Fur project and are "just padding" to have 18 miniatures for the challenge (18 miniatures in 3 months).

As you can see from my first post on these two, I went for regular Ungors from the Middlehammer Beastman range. Both were sculpted by Alan Perry.

I went for the regular black primer along with a stronger white dry brush to pick up the details and have better orientation on the model.

Throwback – Lead Belt Nottingham 2010 – Day 4

Last day of our trip to the lead belt and we headed to the outer area of the Nottinghamshire, to Mansfield to be exactly. Why head out there? Maelstrom Games had their facilities there, back in the day one of the largest wargaming stores, maybe only second to Wayland Games in the UK.

Maelstrom Games - Brick & Mortar Store

What made it interesting was not only the vast range, but the incredibly large gaming hall with 72 (!) tables, that hosted two tournaments at the same time. Epic 40.000 and Warhammer Ancient Battles on that day we were there. But not all, they even covered a bar, lounge and even more gaming tables. I think one of the things that impressed me the most, that even although the vast amount of tables and this not being club rooms, the amount of terrain was high and the quality of it more than just presentable.

Throwback – Lead Belt Nottingham 2010 – Day 3

Friday started quite early, at 9 a.m. we went for a quick shopping at Mantic, as some of us wanted to buy some Kings of War armies. In my case, it were a few zombies (I really like the versatile use of the ghouls and zombies by Mantic) and the Dwarfen kings council. On top we got these Mantic messenger bags with personal dedication by Ronnie and Alessio.

But that was just a brief stay at Mantics, as we had the second part of our meeting with Warlord Games. I had the chance to meet John Stallard, who was tied the day before (he participated in the Games Workshop shareholder meeting). It was really great to meet another former high ranking manager. John participated in the same battle report, we mentioned yesterday with Ronnie.
