More LOTR - facing the Terror of Angmar

Gulavhar on the Rampage

Kalle, whom had missed our tournament on Sunday, asked for a sparring partner to try out his Angmar list for the coming tournament somewhere in Sweden, I was the fool to agree...

LOTR (Hobbit) SBG Tournament @ Nopat Club

Rough Going for Elves of Loth Lorien

Players from around Finland gathered to play a 400p. LOTR SBG tournament at Nopat Club. I decided early on to play with Elves. As the deadline for delivering lists arrived, I only had started to draft my list, but had to send the first draft... Well I wasn't going to be playing that die hard anyway...
Fine tuned some Galahdrims for the tournament

More Maurice

Another GO for Lesnaya 1708

As we liked the Maurice system (By Sam Mustafa) quite a bit, I wanted to re-run Lesnaya with a slightly different team this time. Antti and me were playing the Swedes now and Jaakko, Stephan and Sebastian (latter two being guest players to our campaign) were running the Russians. Matti had also ventured to the club, but the game he thought would have been there wasn't. so he joined us.

Training New Saga Limes -players

Giving the Raid a go as a BARBARIAN!

One our Barbarian players in the Limes campaign decided, that he doesn't want to play anything
competitive, so we needed to recruit more barbarians - and got two more. As my Brother in Arms for Romans wanted to test drive the Roman faction and I wanted to try the scenario as a barbarian, we set up a "dress rehearsal" game. One of the newly recruited barbarian players, Mikko, joined as my second in command.

Of course I had to paint a few barbarians for the game, here still WIP

Read on to find out, could even I win the dreaded Raid-scenario...

Limes campaign reboot - Raiding Huns!

Huns - fast as wind...

We rebooted the Limes campaign, as the first go ended in two rounds. We agreed on some balancing actions and scaled the campaign from 1 on 1 to 2 on 2. See these amendments at the campaign page.

So off we went and started the campaign new. Barbarians only reported a total of 14 time units for us Romans to use, so few! We expected, that some winter raids would be in order... as my first round opponent Kalle announced he is going to play with the Hun faction, I didn't expect any snow (except here in Finland)... read on to learn how my first encounter with the dreaded Huns and their hellish leader Khan Kattila went...

Armies on Parade: Late Romans


This warband has been in the making since last winter. I got the miniatures from Hamburger Tactica and soon after we made a joint order to Grippingbeast for Aetius & Arthurs supplement.

First go with the Warband (half painted at the time) was in April this year.

Then we started the Limes-campaign and that put the minis to the front in my painting pipeline (that has hundreds of almost finished miniatures). Now I have most of the miniatures ready and it's time to display them - Armies on Parade! The rest of them will certainly get ready as our campaign progresses... I just need to build the stables.
