WFB: Border dispute beetwen Bretonnia and Empire Piątek, Maj 26 2023 

Yesterday we played small battle on 1250 points beetwen my Bretonnians and Łukasz Empire.

– good game, I guess it was Empire victory, suppose 12:8 or 15:5. Thank you Łukasz for great game!
– it’s my last attempt to make WROHammer alive, if I fail shadow of me could be seen playing WFB, but never again I will try to organize anything related to this system, at least I can see that this scenario wouldn’t happen now.
– as making Old World alive again we started playing Mordheim, to be sure I will play both, Mordheim and WFB. Thank you guys who joined our small group playing Mordheim – it’s really nice to see ppl I know from other systems like Bolt Action or other systems, to play together.
– still searching for a job, not sure if I want to be a software tester – probably would like to test games of any kind, but cannot get in that industry.

WROHammer: Final of the league 2022/23 Sobota, Maj 13 2023 

Today we played final of the league started last year – more details HERE. We played in Bolter and we had a lot of fun enjoying our games. From me I want to say big thank you to Krzysztof, for taking seriously idea I throwed on tournament I organised last August, many thanks, you did great job!

Today there were five of us from eleven players involved – many thanks to Rafał – organizer of MISFIRE that he took place of person which cannot be there.

I played first game with Alessandro, my Tilean friend of many games – we had Draw 10:10, then I played my second game first time with Rafał and from start I was thinking to not do mistakes, I losed 15:5 – it was great game anyway, hope we will play again. For my third game I became photographer on my will.

Below is mix of photos of our battles:

– the first place belongs to Alessandro, second to Bartek and third to me – we had great fun, to be sure we plans another league, but first we need to take some rest after that.
– thanks to all participants and I hope to see you again, as I find enough ideas and power to organise more smaller WFB events, probably for smaller points as well.
– we turn back to 6/7 edition, at least we have such plan with some limits.
– of course, I want to go to Prague from time to time to see and play with my Czech and German friends there.

WFB: Exploration of Albion – a fight for lost comrades Czwartek, Kwi 20 2023 

„One more beer for our friendship said Rurik Brassgaze, one more said his new fellow, young knight Louis de Beauville! – camp was full of Bretonnians knights and they servants and Dwarfs they meet during travel in wild area of the Albion. Both parties agreed that they will rejoin they forces, to achieve they mission together, both were tracking Dark Elves who catched they kinsmen in area close to small port Neue Reikdorf in Albion. Both sides had many common in tracking they enemy”.

Today we played smaller game in WFB with army books from 6th and rulebook from 7th edition. It was game played two on two with 600 points per gamer. Together with Alessandro Dwarfs we played on one side, on the other were Dark Elves of Bartek and Krzysiek.

– good to hear before game, that I’m looking happy – strange, as I’m looking for some interesting job – not remote anymore.
– It was nice game and we will repeat it with maybe more points, next time we want to just give a try to old Mordheim.
– we are open to play smaller points, I’m still thinking about some form of campaing, where everyone have a castle and three random places like a town, village, mine, shrine, forest etc. so troops can be a little bit different – still no idea how to organize it.
– next WROHammer will be probably something different to previous one, but anyway, we have to talk about it, in small team.

„Do you smell they fear? Yes, it’s delicious – we have more captives, but we should go for more – release Cold One Knights, they smell them! Yes, let’s start hunting for hummies and davies, run! Catch them all!”.

WFB: In a search of tomb of long forsaken Khorne warrior Wtorek, Kwi 18 2023 

„Somewhere in the north Bretonnia Khorne warriors party landed from the sea and were looking for long forgotten tomb of ancient Khorne warrior, which name was cursed in past and only in they sagas is sung as ‚Bloody whip for Bretonnians’ – damsel of the lady Eleonora had dream about horrors buried in ancient grave, she warned duc Tancred de Beauville to ride forth, as they were on the road in area of tomb – so Bretonnians ordered by they duc had to investigate a tomb, when they appeard – another party emerged from the forest.”

Today we played with Basiorek in Bolter on one thousand points in classical 6th edition of WFB with 7th edition rulebook. Basiorek was playing Khorne army from Norsca or even more to the north, while I was playing my classical Bretonnians from barony of Beauville. As I have to mention some armies from Old World and areas far beyond can be still done with use of current Games Workshop offer – look HERE.

Photos done from Khorne side were done by Basiorek, from my side were done by me.

– at the end we counted scores and Basiorek owned 732 to my 712 – so with such love difference it was draw.
– great game on smaller points, hope to repeat it in the close future.
– it’s funny, I know Basiorek because of our common friend Klocek for many years and we played a lot of Warhammer: Invasion card game, but it was first time we played tabletop game and it was WFB 🙂 .

„When the dust of battle settled, the crypt was found empty, and the Chosen of Khorne withdrew into the forest with the coffin. Duc Tancred ordered his squires to scout next day, as night fell, a few of the best have convinced the duke to move now.”

On last Saturday 11.03 we played another event in WFB 7th edition in Wrocław, Bolter. Last edition had more players, but we look for the future, as we know next one will be even better!

We played on modified rules of Grumpy made by Alex avaible here.

Some photos I did after my first and only game.

– thank you Alessandro for being judge and to Marian for photos, sorry for losing first match 12:8, I’m usually play weaker cavalry Empire plus Kislev 😉 .

WFB: Tournament in honour of Ludvik Jagellonsky Poniedziałek, Maj 16 2022 

Last Saturday it was pleasure to participate in event done by Martin and Alex in Prague. It was great that after WROHammer vol.3 I was able to rejoin them in Prague. Event was great and we have plans for repeating it in Prague (Czech Republic) and in Wrocław (Poland). We want to do events abroad those two cities too. Praha (PRAAGHammer) and Wrocław (WROHammer) communities have bond we want to continue to grow up!

Friendship and friends are important for everyone, as I had abroad most friends from Russia I have meet many great ppl from Czech Republic, want to meet more!

– Alessandro mate, thank you for believing in me!

WFB: Bretonnian battle with Skaven in Praha Niedziela, Maj 15 2022 

Last few days I’ve been in Czech capital – Praha (EN Prague, PL Praga). Everything we have now started on 7th edition group in the fourth quater of 2021. Months of posts with invitation of new members give resulted in contact with Archibald and then Ludek, Martin and Petr. I realised that maybe we can do another WROHammer event vol. 3. From talk we started working on event which we organized on February 2022. Archibald, Ludek and Martin arrived from Praha, CZ and Janek from Gdynia, PL, we had some good meeting on Friday, then great games on Saturday and some beers after. Freshly after Wrocław WROHammer event in Praha had been announced, there were some ppl wanting to came there from Wrocław, finally I left my zone of control and travelled to beautiful capital of Czech Republic, then I was re-joined by Alessandro on day of the event.

Praha event took place in great hobby store Ogří doupě on 14.05.2022.

More about Praha later, as I have too many photos and some thinks in my mind.

– it was great experience to come there and meet Martin and to know more friends here in Praha, thank you Petr and Vladimir for great time!
– day before I was taken from the hotel and saw two oldest pubs and Hradczany, it was really nice to meet you or first time personally meet.
– we talked about everything, from Praha history, WFB and other games including RPG’s, PC games up to situation on the east.
– it was great to see first time in life metro.
– with Martin I played my first game abroad, it was great experience to finally visit city of friends we know from FB group.
– all the time I know that I can improve my English, but up to this date I know that is on enough level to talk with friends about anything, play tabletop games (last time I was translating Polish rulebook into English for Czech friend), to talk in business in case of support or regarding requirements with architects. Reading with understanding fantasy, history, news and technical documentation.

WFB 7th: A training before Prague event Czwartek, Maj 12 2022 

Last Sunday we continued our Polish-Italian struggle beetwen my Bretonnians and Alessandro greenskins. It was first time I tried my list on 1526 points and after game I decided to update it.

– most of Bretonnians unit fled the field, only mounted squires were on field at the end.
– it was great game and I revised my army list a little bit. Reduced number of knights and added one more lance of young Knights Errants. Instead of one her – another damsel lvl 2 was added.

Warhammer Fantasy Battle, how to start? Part I. Niedziela, Kwi 17 2022 

Warhammer Fantasy Battle is so called „dead” system – but still there are people who play it. It’s square based system, where units move in formations (although some of them move as skirmishers and few of them circle wheel bases – like Night Goblin fanatics). „Dead” system – system which is not supported by it publisher.

Games Workshop
(GW) closed line of development for Warhammer Fantasy Battle (called in short WFB) when I started my current job (around 2016). To this day in they offer are many models for Age of Sigmar, which can be used to play in WFB (some of them are models released during 7/8th editions of WFB). So what we had in past? Games Workshop released following armies:

Bad guys were:
– Chaos (after 5th edition it was separated on Chaos Warriors, Beastmen and Deamons) – here are all of them,
– Chaos Dwarfs,
– Dark Elves,
– Orcs and Goblins,
– Skaven army,
– Vampire Counts.

Good guys released:
High Elves,
The Empire,
Wood Elves (up to 5th edition).

So called neutral:

– Dogs of War,
– Kingdoms of Ogres,
– Lizardmen,
– Tomb Kings.
– Wood Elves (from 6th edition).

Those mentioned are armies that were in WFB, still around half of them can be fielded with the current line of GW models.

When I looked on the shelf in the shop, I realized that probably the easiest armies to be collected now are demons of Chaos.

Nowadays from Games Workshop offer will be impossible to assemble: Bretonnians, Dogs of War, Kislev, Tomb Kings. Not easy but still possible will be creating something for Dwarfs, High Elves, The Empire, Wood Elves. Still many units are not in the offer – but it’s will be mentioned in next article.

What is still avaible in the Games Workshop offer? We will start from bad guys – Grand Alliance Chaos which covers in some way armies from past: Beastmen, Chaos Warriors, Deamons of Chaos and Skavens.

1. Chaos Warriors, old mortal Chaos – now called Slaves to Darkness:
– models for characters – wide range,
– Chaos Warriors on foot and on horse,
– Chaos Marauders on foot and on horse,
– Chariots,
– Spawns,
– character on Manticore.

2. Chaos Beastmen, called now Beasts of Chaos, even better choice than they Northern co-believers:
– Gors – typical core infantry,
– Ungors – typical cannon fodder,
– Ungor Raiders – skirmishers with bows,
– Chaos Warhounds,
– Bestigors – elite infantry,
– Centigors (they are usualy drunk, still avaible),
– Dragon Ogres,
– Ghorgon,
– Cygor,
– Cockatrice,
– Tuskgor Chariot,
– some characters as well.

3. Chaos Deamons with current name in offer as four different demoinc powers, so:
a) Blades of Khorne – deamons of Khorne:
– there are greater deamon of Khorne – Bloodthirster as well as many other units which were used in WFB in past. Most popular core units from 6th are:
– Bloodletters – minor deamons of Khorne,
– Flesh Hounds.
I don’t remember special or rare units but Mighty Skullcrushers probably appeard in 7th or 8th editions.

b) Disciples of Tzeentch – deamons of Tzeentch:
– of course we start with Kairos Fateweaver and Lord of Change as lords,
– Horrors of Tzentch,
– Screamers of Tzeentch,
– Flamers of Tzeentch,
– Horrors of Tzeentch,
– Burning Charoit of Tzeentch,
– some characters as well.

As we can see summoning horde of Tzeentch is even easier than those of Blood God.

c) Hedonites of Slaanesh – deamons of Slaanesh:
– at start – Keeper of Secrets and Shalaxi Helbane – both can be used as Greater Deamon of Slaanesh,
– Deamonettes of Slaanesh,
– Seekers of Slaanesh which looks like Mounted Deamonettes of old,
– Seeker Chariot of Slaanesh,
– some models which looks like good addition to Chaos Warriors.
– some characters as well.

For me not many, but deamonettes could fit well in Cult of Slaanesh from 6th edition Storm of Chaos.

d) Maggotkin of Nurgle – deamons of Nurgle:
– at start – Great Unclean One,
– Nurglings – small and happy deamons of disease,
– Plagueabearers of Nurgle,
– Beast of Nurgle,
– some characters as well.

It seems all, maybe I missed something for those Chaos power.

e) Skaven army seems to be well covered in Age of Sigmar:
– at start named and by many favourite character Thanquol and his rat ogre Boneripper,
– Doomwheel – one of those funny stuff you don’t like to come near your cavalry units,
– Hell Pit Abomination – effect of Skaven most advanced technology,
– Warp Lighting Cannon – another rare unit avaible to Skavens in the GW offer,
– Screaming Bell,
– Stormvermin – some better infantry unit avaible to the Skaven horde,
– Gutter Runners,
– Weapon teams – including Ratling Gun, Warpfire Thrower or Warp-Grinder,
– Night Runners – another skirmishing infantry,
– Plague Censer Bearers,
– Rat Ogors, Giant Rats and Packmaster – Rat Ogors – old Rat Ogres,
– Clanrats – core unit of many Skaven armies.
– Plague Monks,
– Warplock Jezzails of clan Skryre,
– Verminlord avaible as four different models,
– some characters as well.

As I realized that I started writing it some months ago and due lack of time I wasn’t able to publish it I publish it now as part I.

Everyone should remember – that Age of Sigmar uses round bases and WFB uses square bases. In case of getting army books – eBay, Allegro or other internet shop, maybe someone sell it. Of course everything is also in .pdf – I prefer paper books.

To be continued.

WFB 6th: 3rd edition of Dragon in Rumia Niedziela, Sier 8 2021 

On 7.08.2021 I participated in Dragon – event organized by friends from Gdynia in nearby town Rumia – norther Poland, are of Trójmiasto (Gdynia, Sopot, Gdańsk). We played on 1250 points, with all rules avaible for 6th edition (like Kislev Allied Contingent under 2,000 army lists from White Dwarfs etc.). It was worth to go out from safe zone of Wrocław and spend five and half hour in train to Gdynia – unhapilly there are no personal teleports – I wish one to Moscow and another one for such events 😉 .

– it was interesting to participate in such large event in so called „death system” – that system in reality never died and Dragon is a proof of it.

– there were many players from Trójmiasto and area, many Warsowians. Not sure about other cities.
– I was the only one from Wrocław – hope that next year more of us will come here.
– it was interesting to talk with many other players, wish to remember all your names next time.
– at the end Paweł organized after party in really interesting place hidden behind modern buildings – it was somekind of inn which survived in the middle of concrete. We talked there with some part of Warsowians mainly about WFB but also about other systems or history.
-many thanks for all drivers who really helped me in getting to Rumia and back and go to my hotel after party.
