Warhammer Old World Campaigns (1)

 Beginning: 

In days past, when life was just the slightest bit calmer - The Empire attempted to begin colonizing The Southlands. 


Thus the city of Sudenburg was founded. Eventually, the province of Antoch, and the Tuskar Plains were added to this colony of man. But, as wars came and the resources of The Empire were stretched thin, humans had to withdraw somewhat. Now, the Tuskar Plains are a lawless, ungoverned place; and Antoch has been abandoned to Araby.


Meanwhile, the Tomb Kings rise and begin to move towards conquest, while the Lizardmen begin probing northwards. Skirmishing has been noted in the Tuskar Plains, and tis only a matter of time before the armies of the Kings and Lizards meet. 


We’ll use this as a jumping off/test point for rulesets. Small battles in the Tuskar Plains that at this point don’t have any bearing on the campaign but allow us to narratively explain our rules testing.


We’ll be trying out -

Kings of War

Warmaster

Fantastic Battles

Sword & Spear Fantasy

Warhammer Fantasy Battles

Catching Up on January - March

It's been a rough year so far - came off quarantine after recovering from COVID, and then had to go off immediately again because my mother became very ill and then passed away. So, painting and hobbying have been a major stress relief for me; and while I haven't posted much; I've definitely been somewhat productive.

I'm very much planning on doing better about posting more as I finish things; and there are loads of projects on the go. Hopefully one of which will be showcased in the next couple days! Now, lets see what I've been up to -


Zombicide Black Plague Necromancer


28mm Pulp Hero from Pulp Figures


1/2400 CSS Manassas


28mm Flock of Sheep from Gripping Beast


Three more 28mm Pulp Heroes from either Pulp Figures or Crooked Dice



Ten 28mm Bolshevik/Soviet Infantry from Baker Company

 

2021 Painted Figures: - 20

2021 Finished Terrain - 1

2021 Games Played - 0

2020's Final Tally - Hell Warriors and Innsmouth Folk

Aren't we all glad THAT'S over with? Jeez. 2020 was pretty crap all the way around. But, from a hobby standpoint it was pretty good. Obviously with lockdown and quarantines - painting was a must to keep one sane. I started Keepering Call of Cthulhu online, and have logged over 400hrs of Masks of Nyarlathotep for 4 different groups spread all over the US, Canada, Norway, Wales and England which will continue into 2021. Also started a Chain of Command campaign with some guys from Norway and England which will be continuing this year. We'll deal with goals for 2021 in my next post. Anyways - here's my final figures from 2020 "The Plague Year". 



Hell Warriors from Mythic Battles: Pantheon. I wasn't sure about the skin tone to be honest, until I slapped an ink wash on them. Now they're growing on me.


These 4 Innsmouth residents shall see service in a host of games including skirmish games and RPG's! They're from Crooked Dice and I love them.







Shown above are 17 of my Call of Cthulhu Players Characters. They have now all been shipped to their respective owners around the globe!

So the final tally for 2020 is: 

2020 Painted Figures - 256

2020 Finished Terrain - 15

2020 Games Played - 6

Not too bad.
