FG: Enemies Without Number

A whole years ago JP and I played this scenario, and it has taken until now for me to write it up…ahead of our first game in over a year !

So dredging up memory…Reveal SDecret – Shazzam the MNighty…

AS ever, JP nicks my gold.

Up on the catwalk, my Captain and treasure Hunter square off againstbthe enemy.

Another one down.

And in the centre it all kicks off.

But I WAS GOING TO GET THE TREASURE.

ELSEWHERE, JP’S MINIONSD FOUGHT THE BARBARIANS TOO.

THERE REALLY WERE A LOT OF BARBARIANS !

So getting the treasure out was hard work/fighting.

Right to the edge !

No idea who won or not, b ut it was fun.

FG: Barael’s Blade

The third part of the mini campaign Alan and I have been playing was completed today.

Quite na interesting scenario this one, the Howling Half Breed by now was invulnerable to anything other than the titular blade, which was atop a pyramid in the centre of the board.

The blade was gripped by the mummified remains of Barael himself a high ranking wizard before the fall.

The Howling Half Breed was at the foot of the pyramid, and typically we rolled, it was nearer to my wizard and war band than Alan’s Tipstaff’s motley crew.

Hmm, what could I do ?

brew some potions of teleportation and chuck in some sacrificial pawns to distract the half breeed whilst we wrested the sword from the mummified corpse !

Warhound flanking attack XXX, shot dead.

Hurrah, first treasure, fog walls everywhere to prevent the Halfbreed attacking me.

And on the other flank, an attempt to rescue our treasure, with some good shots from my Marksman, Captain Starbuck, and then a wandering monster. (Wild Dog)

Old Mother Parma (or OMP as Alan now calls her), drank a Potion of Teleportation and got to the Mummy and Blade of Barael. And then spent 3 rounds trying to prize it out of the corpse’s withered hand.

meanwhile the Hlaf-brfeed had ignored my sacrificial pawn, jumped on and killed a Treasure Hunter (with treasure), but was beaten off and snatched between two walls of go.

In the meantime, Tipstaff’s crew had been busy being cowards custards and looting the place.

Using lots of Wall spells.

But not so fast, random movement brought the Half-Breed into range old Tipstaff !

Who conjured another Wall, meaning the Half-Breed attacked his own retreating men. Meantime my Archer and Ranger had downed his Barbarian due to some good rolls for once.

But now it was drawing cxxloe to Old Mother Parma who had still not wrested the blade from the corpse.

Craaack – just in time the withered hand released the blade, OMP, fell down the pyramid, Henrietta the apprentice cast Fog, and we headed for home with the sacred blade in hand.

Tipstaff and co had in the meantime being running away, casting an enormous wall to cover their cowardly retreat.

Theoretically, Tipstaff won with three treasure chests.

But given he had lost 5 models, and me one, and I’d got the blade, kudos too Alan he agreed I was the winner.

End of campaign.

Now back to the vaults of memory, to extract photos of a game JP and I played a year ago, as we have a session lined up next week to continue the Forgotten Pacts campaign.

FGGA: Up before the Beak

Another model that is quick to do, well after its been pinned. The model is made of resin, and obviously is top heavy so Richard pinned the tree trunk properly.

One Razorbeak.

Foundry granite for body and wings, using the Light to dry brush the wings. Then a coat of Citadel Reikland Flesh, which was too subdued, so I used a wash of Carrowburg Crimson.

I’d used Foundry Bay Brown and Granite for the tree limb too, so to make it stand out from the Razorbesak itself I gave it a wash of Citadel Bierl-tan to represent the lichen, moss and algae.

FG Malcor’s Advisory Council…and cobwebs…

From the Maze of Malcor range for the frost grave supplement, some quick easy to paint figures.

Wispy and insubstantial… I painted them as per the illustration in the book, Foundry Deep Brown Leather, Citadel Skullcrusher brass highlight, with a Devlan Mud wash to tone them down a bit.

One cat (BlackJack, who else ?) had obviously been poking around in the barns and turned up covered in cobwebs, he was not insubstantial though and demanded feeding after I’d brushed him clean.

Nearly 100 photos to edit for 3 games sessions. And another session on Friday.
