Been offline for a bit. Just popped in to let everyone know we enjoyed our intro game of DR using our dusty Warhammer Fantasy figures late January. Played the first two scenario from the book: the slugfest for the Brewer's Barrels on Kegger Hill. The Dwarves put up a good stoush. But the thirsty Beastmen of Derek would not be denied their ale in the end.

Game Two was a snatch and run. Kevin and his horny fellows managed to purloin a treasure chest of Dwarven gold and were racing to freedom. But the Brewer and his warband were determined to stop the hooven horde. And they looked like they would succeed as the Quarrellers made some decimating hits on the speedy furballs. And when the Spearmen of Khruddz reached the exit point first, it looked to be all over Red Rover. Especially as the heroic brewer himself, Clive, roamed at will sniping and taunting his foes with impunity. But Kevin's lot, as in the previous, would not denied. Using attrition they whittled the Little Stumpies until they resembled tiny pencils worn down to their ends.

It was an entertaining three easy hours. Game went slow at first but picked up pace considerably in the second game. Next game in two weekends. Night Goblins versus Lustrians perhaps. Will post pics then. Cheers. ☺

Howdy. Just touching base with what's happening gaming-wise.
(0) Batrep for past game of DR and intro game of BTH on my blogsite. Interesting game. My opponent was on the ball in both encounters. I was lucky to escape with a draw in the second game even though it was an intro for my opponent. First game was a lambasting for my 4-unit Beasties. Eventually their numerical inferiority would be exposed, especially against the 7-unit Night Goblins.
(1) Awaiting availability of compadre-in-collusion for next DR game. It'll happen when it happens so it goes.
(2) Enjoyed a solo test run of BTH enough to want to run another solo BTH game over this weekend featuring a large German bombing run of Dorniers, Heinkels and Junkers being intercepted by scrambling British fighters (Spitfires and Hurricanes). It will be a massively glorious mess when throwing into the mix the escorting fighters (110s and 109s). On a small table, there will be the invariable air collision. Or three.
