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.

Summary:
– 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!

– 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.

Summary:
– 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.

WFB 7th: Never ever go on ogres without guns Czwartek, Maj 5 2022 

Today we played smaller game in WFB on 1250 points per side, I took my cavalry Empire and Kislev and my enemy took Ogres. It was nice, two hours game, where I discovered, that one cannon could make difference – but I don’t have any such device today.

Summary:
– this day belong to Ogre Kingdoms!

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:
Bretonnia,
Dwarfs,
Kislev,
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: Border clash beetwen Bretonnians and Orcs Wtorek, Kwi 12 2022 

Yesterday we played with Michał Border Patrol game on 500 points using WFB 7th edition rules. Michał wasn’t playing WFB for a long time, so it was time for him to refresh rules.

As Bretonnian (Michał) side decided to pray to the Lady, orcs started first turn of a game.

Summary:
– great game and as it was Border Patrol it’s fast and good to bring back rules of WFB.

WFB 7th: Inter arma silent Musae… Czwartek, Lu 24 2022 

Today, in that sad day from the morning we played a very friendly game on 1526 points with Sambor Skavens – it was a test of some interesting works of Skaven engineers. I took Empire (belowed Middenheim – City of the White Wolf and Bergsburg – city of goddess of mercy Shallya) and Kislev (stanitsa – Wrotizla), as I have them magnetized and was able to put box with them easily to the bag.

We played on 1526 points as our friends living in Prague organize event with such points limit.

Summary of our struggle:
– thank you Sambor for great game again,
– thanks for Bolter for place we play,
– still learning this army.

Summary of 24.02.2022:
– I just wish peace beetwen Russia and Ukraine, as most of ordinary people wants to live in it, I wish international friendships which are priceless as any other. We managed to find great people in Prague, but as Pole living in Wrocław, PL I wish to have friends everywhere – Germans, Russians, Ukrainians, French, British, Americans etc. – hobby is shortest way to find interesting people. You meet person, you have a chance to knew different cultere, traditions, cuisine etc.
– to be sure I’m right side and I can say, that I enjoy meeting people of different nations – in my life I found friends in other nations, especially Russians, Moldovians but also Spanish, Dutch, Belgians, Denmark, Germans, Bialorussians, Ukrainians. Found Czechs and British (or Archibald found me). We are all the same as a people.

As I love Russians, I also meet many great Ukrainians – I wish peace for both nations. Life is too short, to be victim of war.

WROHammer 2022, vol.3 Poniedziałek, Lu 7 2022 

Last Saturday as WROHammer we organised Warhammer Fantasy Battle 7th edition event in Bolter.pl, Wrocław, Poland. From my perspective first time with help of friends I organized event related to hobby I’m playing around 25 years – I’ve been organizer of after work beers only. With Marian we wanted to organize WROHammer two years ago, but pandemy destroyed our plans at least not forever. I returned to our plans after Archie wrote me message after seeing my post on – Warhammer Fantasy Battle 7th edition. Generally I wrote something, that why not meet and play with people from neighbour country? With example that Wrocław is not far away to Berlin or Prague. To make event even greater, I started looking for sponsors and place.

Our sponsors were:
Arbooz (read below)
Kromlech
Micro Art Studio
Paint Forge
Spellcrow
Tereny do Gier
WROHammer

Arbooz has in offer following great stuff: Craft Toolbox, Gamers Grass, Roubloff.

I want to thank sponsors for great prizes and to our host which was Bolter – we thanks for many great tables with beautiful scenery and also for many help from Piotr! I want to thank to Alessandro – for best eye in case of checking army lists, to Marian – for patience in case of adding new sponsors to our diploma, to Remo for help in things I never did and for everyone who attend our event – we played in group of British, Czechs, Italian and Poles. It was great to meet you all on our event!

We had good time on Friday, where our friends from Czech Republic and friend from Gdynia arrived – we just went for some beers and food in Wrocławska restaurant – which is close to Rynek. On Saturday we played all day, then we went for some after party to Cafe Artzat also close to Rynek. WROHammer 4th edition will happen in the future, yet at the end I was tired a little – still it was worth of it. There are a lot of photos from Marian here.
