WFB: Underground Empire counterstrike Sobota, Mar 4 2023 

Yesterday I played another game with Sambor in our WROHammer league 2022-23 – thank you Palen, for organising page and league! We had interesting battle in WFB 7th edition. There were several points when game stopped for a moment. I tried to do my best and do photos of those moments.

We played on modified set of rules for WFB – Lore of Grumpy released by Alex, we use version from Semptember/October of 2022.

– great game against Sambor.
– at the end it was 14:6, I was loser in this battle beetwen noble Bretonnians and vile Skavens.
– several moments in the game where crucial for both sides.

WFB: A clash with enemy who doesn’t exists Niedziela, Lu 19 2023 

Last Saturday I played another game in 2022-2023 league of WROHammer, which was started due efforts of Palen. I had chance to play against Piotr’s Skaven’s. We played with rules attached to page mentioned on the top. We play 7th edition rulebook and army books are generally from this edition as well.

– it was great game, although I have to rethink how to play against such monstrous things like abomination.
– some more days to thinking about changes, not only in tabletop games.

One common thing with my battle, one side was tablet from the field.

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.

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 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.

WFB 7th: Bretonnians&Dwarfs vs Chaos&Skaven Poniedziałek, Gru 27 2021 

Today we played in Bolter.p, Wrocław, PL, 2 on 2 game – building armies around Border Patrol composition from 6th edition. Each army had 500 points – it was 2000 in total on the table. We had ambitious plan to play scenario – but it will wait for better day.

– great, fast game.
– next time we should play two on two with more points, as some armies works better on more points.
– thank you guys for good time!

WFB 7th: Bretonnians vs Skavens Sobota, List 13 2021 

Today we played with Marian on 1500 points per side. I could forget about that race exists – yeap, they are no legend those rat beastmens.

– at least now I know one more thing – thank you Marian.
– battle was if we counted it well minor victory for Skavens.

WROhammer vol. 2 PL/EN Sobota, Lu 29 2020 

Kolejna odsłona WROhammer’a, tym razem gospodarzem był „Profi”. Zagraliśmy w dwóch czterosobowych zespołach – żółtych i czerwonych. Każdy z uczestników wystawił armię na 1000 punktów, na zasadach 7 edycji WFB. W skrócie: w pierwszej grze celem było zdobycie przedmiotu, drugiej utrzymanie go, w trzeciej zdobywca przedmiotu mógł go użyć.

Next part of WROhammer, this time the host was „Profi”. We played in two teams of four people each – yellows and reds. Each participant developed army for 1000 of points, on rules from 7 edition of WFB. Shortly: in first game our target was to took item, second hold it in our hands and in third players who got item could use it.

Planszóweczka na Bielanach, miejsce gdzie graliśmy. Planszóweczka on Bielany Wrocławskie, place we played.


Jeden ze stołów. One of the game boards.


Pierwsza gra z Krasnoludami Remo, czary jakie wylosowałem to 1 i 4 z magii życia. First game I played with Remo’s Dwarfs, spells I got were 1 and 4 from Lore of Life.

Żyrokopter przyleciał. Gyrocopter came.


Ruch w stronę kuszników i skarbu kryjącego się na wzgórzu. Move toward crossbowmen and treasure hidden on the hill.


Na innym stole. On the other gameboard.


Rycerze Królestwa rozbili kuszników (nikt nikogo nie trafił i niezdane morale krasnoludów to był pech). KoTR broken crossbowmen unit (no one hit no one and failed morale for Dwarfs was bad luck).


Próba przędzenia krasnoludów ze wzgórza nie wyszła. Attemp to pursue Dwarfs from the hill didn’t passed.


Rycerze Graala rozbici przez zabójców trolli. Grail Knights broken and pursued by troll slayers.


Rycerze Królestwa przybywają z pomocą chorążemu, Panna Graala rzuca Mistresh of Marsh na zabójców trolli. KoTR came to aid army standard bearer, damsel casts Mistresh of Marsh on troll slayers.


Do walki włącza się żyrokopter. Also gyrocopter join fight.

Gra na stole obok. Game on board next to us.


Przygotowanie do kolejnej tury. Preparing for next turn.


Armia przygotowana do obrony przedmiotu przed hordą orków Marcina. Czary jakie miałem to 1 i 5 z magii życia. Army prepared for defending item against horde of orcs. I got spell 1 and 5 from Lore of Life.


Horda ruszyła w moją stronę. Horde marched toward my side.


Daleko na prawym skrzydle rycerze królestwa ruszyli naprzeciw orków. Far away on right flank KoTR moved toward the orcs.


Przedmiot ustawiłem w lewym górnym rogu pola bitwy. I placed item on top left corner of battlefield.


Najlepszą obroną jest atak, rycerze Graala ruszyli. The best defence is offence, Grail Knights moved.


I zaszarżowali, niestety gonili za daleko. And charged, unhapilly pursued to far.


Rycerze Królestwa zaszarżowali. KoTR charged.


Rycerze Graala gonili za daleko i wpadli w ogień balist. Grail Knights pursued too far and find themselfs in the fire of goblin spear chuccases.


Trolle poganiane przez czarnego orka rozbiły zbrojnych i wpadły na chorągiew armijną. Trolls whiped by black orc defeated unit of men at arms and get in touch with battle standard bearer.


Rycerze Graala próbowali wrócić, ale byli ciągle blokowani. Grail Knights tried to help, but where blocked all the time.


Po pokonaniu sztandarowego wódz orków położył swoje łapy na skarbie. After defeating battle standard bearer orc chieftain put his hands on treasure.


Kolejna gra z Mrocznymi Elfami Krzyśka. Wylosowałem czary 2 i 5 z magii życia. Another game – this time pitched battle was with Krzysztofs Dark Elves. I got spells 2 and 5 from Lore of Life.


Linia Mrocznych Elfów. Line of Dark Elves.


I ruch do przodu. And move forward.


Mój ruch, a właściwie dwie spalone szarże. Jedna o cala, druga o pół cala. Modły do Pani czas zacząć. Diabelska magia przeciwnika. My movement phase, two failed charges. During one I missed inch, in second half of inch. Praying to The Lady should be started. Evil magic of my enemy.


Szarże przeciwnika i ruch oskrzydlający. Charges of my enemy and his flanking move.


Łucznicy ustrzelili kilku mrocznych jeźdźców na tyłach. Archers shoot down few Dark Raiders on the rear.


Początek końca. Resztki rycerzy królestwa padły, podobnie jak i Panna Graala. Beginining of the end. Remnants of KoTRs felt, the same as damsel of the Lady.


Epicka bitwa sztandarowego Graali, który pozbył się rycerzy na Cold One i mrocznych jeźdźców, ale chwilę później był to koniec. Epic battle of Grail Knights unit standard bearer, who destroyed Cold One Knights and Dark Raiders as well, but moment later it was over.


– wielkie dzięki Profi za podjęcie się organizacji, równie wielkie dzięki za miejsce.
– dzięki wszystkim za wspaniałą atmosferę i przybycie!
– nadal nie wiem co brać na tysiąc punktów Bretonnią.
– z krasnoludami, miałem szczęście i zrobiłem błędy, które łatałem, z orkami błędem było nie danie Graalom przedmiotu, z Mrocznymi Elfami – spaliłem szarże.

– many thanks to Profi for organization of event, many thanks to for place.
– thank you everyone for great atmosphere and arrival!
– I still don’t know what to take on one thousand points for Bretonnia.
– with Dwarfs I got luck and did mistakes, which I tried to repair, in second battle great mistake was to not give item to a Grail Knights, with Dark Elves I failed important charges.

WROHammer vol. 1.1 PL/EN Sobota, List 23 2019 

W sobotę 23.11.2019 udało nam się spotkać w większym gronie i zagrać „turniejowo” w starego, dobrego WFB edycję VII. Atmosfera była wspaniała, inna niż na ostatnim turnieju w jaki grałem wieki temu. Graliśmy na rozgrzewkę na tysiąc punktów. Więcej detali: TUTAJ.

Wielkie dzięki dla osób zaangażowanych: Dominika z Kostki Domina, Pawła Botora, Planszóweczki oraz dla wszystkich uczestników.

On Saturday 23.11.2019 we gathered in bigger group and played „tournament” in old, good WFB, edition VII. The atmosphere was great, other than in my last tournament many millennias ago. We played at start on one thousand of points. More details: HERE.

Many thanks for people involved: Dominik from Kostka Domina, Paweł Botor, Planszówka and for every participant.

Pierwsza gra z zielonymi Pawła „Botora”, Bretonnia ustawiona w szyku. First game was with greenskins of Paweł „Botor”, Bretonnian battleline.


I fanatycy wyszli. And goblin fanatics came out.


Jeden fanatyk zginął od strzały z łuku, drugi wbiegł na trzeciego. One of fanatics was shoot down by arrow, second killed third one.


Błędni rycerze zaszarżowali giganta raniąc go. Knights Errants charged giant wounding him.


I tu grę można by skończyć, szarża rycerzy Graala załamała się o milimetry przed rydwanem czarnego orka – wodza hordy. And from this moment I could stop game, broken charge of Grail Knights charging chariot with black orc boss – just missing milimeters.


Gigant został na dwóch ranach, ostatnie chwile błędnych rycerzy. Giant was at the end on two wounds, last moments of Knights Errants.


Walka w centrum. Battle in the centre.


Straty wśród rycerzy Graala. Loses among Grail Knights.


Na końcu pozostał tylko generał. At the end survived my general.


Drugą grę grałem z Mrocznymi Elfami Krzyśka, bardzo mobilną armią. Second game I played against Krzysztof Dark Elves, really mobile army.


Bretońskie lewe skrzydło. Bretonnian left wing.


Mroczne Elfy. Dark Elves.


Planszóweczka na Bielanach. Planszóweczka on Wrocław Bielany.


Pierwsza tura jak zwykle należała do mojego przeciwnika. First turn as always was for my enemy.


Zbrojni mocno oberwali, czterech padło od kusz powtarzalnych. Mounted Yeomen got heavy loses, four felt to the repeating crossbows.


Błędni Rycerze zaszarżowali na wojenną hydrę. Knights Errants charged War Hydra.


Szarża Mrocznych Elfów na Graali. Charge of Dark Elves Cold Ones on Grails.


Bohaterska chorąży armii zatrzymała generała na pegazie. Heroic army battle standard bearer hold on general on dark pegasus.


Walka wre. Battle is going on.


Błędni Rycerze zaatakowani na skrzydle rzucają się do ucieczki. Prawdziwa bohaterka gry – chorąży, zabija pegaza a następnie łamie generała. Knights Errants charged on flank after combat fleed. True hero of game, army battle standard bearer, killed pegas and then broken general.


Kolejna próba zabicia hydry. Another attemp for killing war hydra.


Mniej więcej tyle zostało na koniec z obu armii. Z mojej tylko chorąży. Something like that survived from both armies at the end. From my army only battle standard bearer.


Ostatnią grę grałem z Imperium Janusza. Last game I played with Janusz’s Empire.


Prawe skrzydło. Right wing.


Lewe skrzydło. Left wing.


Armia Imperium. Army of The Empire.


Ruch na prawym skrzydle. Move one right wing.


Centrum. Centre.


I na lewym. And on the left.


Szarża na czołg parowy to był głupi pomysł. Charge on Steam Tank was really stupid idea.


Kolejna szarża. Another charge.


Stalowy potwór, ale uszkodzony. Steel beast, jet damaged.


Błędni rycerze pokonali kwiat Imperialnego rycerstwa, milicję i zderzyli się z techniką Leonardo di Miragliano – czołgiem parowym. Knights Errants defeated flower of Imperial knights, milita and meet they fate under armour of Leonardo di Miragliano device – Steam Tank.


– fajna atmosfera, świetni ludzie, mnóstwo terenów, pomalowane armie.
– zająłem pierwsze miejsce od końca, co motywuje by przemyśleć błędy.
– dwie gry oberwałem porządnie, ostatnią oberwałem solidnie (nie było masakry).
– było słuchać Mariana, ale uparłem się na armię w pełni konną i to było błędem.

– great atmoshpere, good people, many terrains, painted armies.
– I took first place from the end, which is motivating to think about mistakes.
– two games were massacres, last one I losed (no massacre).
– maybe I should listen to Marian, but not – I decided to create cavalry army and it was mistake.

Frostgrave Niedziela, List 17 2019 

W sobotę 16.11.2019 zagraliśmy w Frostgrave, pierwszy raz od bardzo dawna – chcieliśmy zrobić pokazową grę, a skończyło się na nauce zasad od nowa.

On Saturday 16.11.2019 we played in Frostgrave, first time from a long time – we wanted to show how to play to one of our friends, at the end we learned rules again.

Bretońska drużyna (moja). Bretonnian band (my own).


Ukryta skrzynia ze skarbem? Hidden chest with treasure?


Mistrzyni na prawo, uczennica na lewo. Master sorceress on right, apprentiance on left.


Ożywieńcy Dudzia. Dudzio’s Undeads.


Skaveny Łukasza. Łukasz Skavens.


Łucznicy zajęli pozycje w ruinach obok czarodziejki. Archers took positions in ruins near they sorceress.


Wszystko szło do centrum i w centrum ginęło. Skaveny szybko straciły przywódcę. Everyone was going on to the centre and in centre died. Skavens soon loose they leader.


Skaveński uczeń przejął dowodzenie nad bandą. Skaven young spellcaster took leadership over his band.


Z mojej bandy niewiele zostało, dwie czarodziejki i łucznik. From my band not many survived – only sorceress and archer.


Mniej bretończyków. Less Bretonnians.


To co zostało na koniec, plus Skaveny które uciekły poza planszę ze skarbami. What’s left from bands are on this photo, plus Skavens who left board with treasures.


– z zasadami do gier jest jak z językami – nie używasz, zapominasz.
– jeden z tańszych systemów.
– k20 wprowadza element niepewności.
– użyliśmy zbyt małej ilości terenów.
– do powtórzenia za dwa tygodnie.

with game rules is the same as with languages – you not use, you will forget.
– one of the cheapest game system.
– k20 makes element of uncertainty.
– we used only few elements of terrain.
– we will repeat in next two weeks.
