Battle Report – Rangers of Shadowdeep – The Broken Stairs

  With the Watchtower at Tor Varden cleared of the evil Kobolds emerging from the Shadowdeep, Bron and his companions scout a steep pathway leading down the cliffs behind the guard tower. Mustering what provisions they can from the stores of the Tor, they set out immediately on their third mission, this time past the borders of Alladore into the Shadowdeep itself!

The Battle of d'Artenay-Pas-Vraiment - 1870

On Sunday I braved high winds and terrible traffic to join the Rejects for a game in Posties Shed-o-War. However, for a change, our leader wasn't running the game, the honour instead falling to Reject Richard. He had brought his excellent figure collection along for a Seven Years War game using the They Died for Glory rules. This is the second time I have played these rules and both times we have had an excellent game, even if the result wasn't what I had hoped for. In fact, I enjoyed them so much I have bought a copy for myself. The SetupThis is a hypothetical scenario based on the military situation at the time. August and September of 1870 have seen the irresistible onslaught of the Prussian War Machine against an ill-prepared and poorly lead French Army. The Prussians and their allies under the direction on Moltke have swept the Imperial French forces from the North and have commenced the siege of Paris. However, the Teutonic hoard has failed to destroy the armies of Napoleon III,

Tyranids vs Marines

My Tyranid Kill Team got a another outing, this time against Mr Steinbergs Marines. I decided to drop the Lictor this time and use more Hormagaunts and Termagants to see if a horde of eleven models would be effective. At least it is possible to leave a cheap four poiunt model on an objective and not worry about wasting a model. Also, the multi-wound Tyranid Warriors are rather good, they stay at full effectiveness long enough to get up close to the enemy. I had originally thought a Lictor would be a key model in a Tyranid Kill Team, but now I am thinking that two Tyranid Warriors with the rest being Termagants, Hormagaunts and Genestealers are the best way forward. But I do still have to try an all Genestealer Kill Team, nine Genestealers, nasty…

The symptoms were finally taken seriously by the saw-bones and further tests found a serious condition. With no further details we felt confident that she was in safe hands in the hospital where the specialists were considering what action to take. While Mrs.R visited her mother, I went to the club and started the game recorded  below. Two hours into the game, I got a text asking me to come to the hospital right away. I dropped everything and headed off after entrusting my troops to the chaps to look after in the interim. Getting to the hospital I found that my wife had learned the devastating news that her
