So last Saturday I managed to play a couple of games of SAGA for the first time in almost two years. Both battles were four-player battles and both played out quite differently. The first one was a free-for-all, the players each started in one of the corners and had to kill as many men as possible within seven turns.
I decided to play with my Anglo-Saxons, we all had four points to spent on our warband, so I got three points worth of Warriors, creating two units of twelve Warriors. With my last point I bought a unit of mounted Hearthguard, to try an lure weaker elements of my opponents away from their main body and destroy them.
I can’t remember what my opponents armies looked like, but I went up against Scots, Jomsvikings and Norse Gaels… yay :p
And yes, that is 2d terrain. The host is an active Warmachine player, a game in which 2d terrain is a must-have with all those big and clunky (metal) models. I don’t like it either, but just bear with me 😉

In the beginning of this year, the people of the Dutch Miniature Wargaming Facebookgroup decided to start a huge project named 2014 the Defense of France / 2015 Quatre Bras/Waterloo. The objectice was to collect and paint an army for both events. I decided to join the Prussians during this war and last saturday we played the first series of battle for the Defense of France. Continue reading Defense of France, Napoleonic mega battle
I love X-Wing a lot as a game and if you have been following my Facebookpage, you would have seen quite a couple of pictures of the battles I’ve played. But I didn’t make a battle report yet, so here it goes! Rebels vs Rebels. Continue reading a wookie in space!
So our group of Warmachine players got their hands on the Season 2 league-kit Halfaug, but since no-one actually wanted to play an league, we decided to play a paired tournament stretched over the next three weeks. Continue reading Halfaug league tournament: Round 1
You win some, you lose some and sometimes, you completely fail some… Apologies to my opponent. Continue reading How to fail at a game of Warmachine
A couple of days ago I’ve played a game of Warmachine 35pts against a Cryx player from my club with my mercs as part of the running Journeyman League and was a bit skeptical about my chances. My past encounters with Cryx did not go well and I am still learning the tricks about my mercs. But it all went really well eventually. Continue reading Rain down destruction on Cryxians
Two days after painting my Normans I already played a nice game of Saga with them. Against an fearless army of Vikings we fought the Challenge scenario, pitching our Warlords against each other with our forces fighting all around them… or so was the general idea… Continue reading Saga battle report: the Challenge
Last Tuesday I had a battle against a fellow Lizardmen player, but the biggest difference between us, is that he started playing the new book right from the start and this is only my second game with the new book… Also he had more of the new kits available and I only had a unit of Ripperdactyls. Continue reading Table full of unpainted Lizardmen
Last evening I’ve played a game against a friend of mine to test one of our lists for the EU Masters. eDoomy with 3 Heavy Warbeasts (first time I fielded 3 Heavy’s) against Kaelyssa with a full unit Mage Hunter Strike Force… since it was my first time against that unit, I was in for some nasty surprises… Continue reading Doomshaper vs Kaelyssa, bad match-up?
So a friend of mine and I just got our Battle Engines and took them to the field of battle to playtest them… Need more playtesting :p Continue reading Roll out the Battle Engines
