Der Eisenhammer!

Category: Battle ReportsWarmaHordes Comments: No comments

And we have another tournament report. Der Eisenhammer! Its also organised by the Headblast club in Oberhausen, and its called that because the location is literally “Am Eisenhammer”. You can’t make that up.

Where the HMD were a 3 man team tournament, for the Eisenhammer we went full WTC. 5 man teams, WTC pairing rules. Most of the German WTC players were there, plus some Belgians and Dutch, as well as 1 Swede!

Bartek, Alex and I found us 2 more players – Martin, who played Skorne (no, not THAT Martin) and Björn, who also brought Cygnar. So we went with this lineup:

Bartek – Khador – Karchev, Irusk 2
Alex – Retribution – Vyros 2, Ossyan
Martin – Skorne – Naaresh, Hexeris 2
Björn – Cygnar – Darius, Haley 1
me – Cygnar – Caine 2, Maddox

I was determined not to play Caine all day long...

Heavy Metal Dayz Review, Part 2

Category: Battle ReportsWarmaHordes Comments: No comments

This is part 2 of my Heavy Metal Dayz review – if you haven’t read the first part, click here.

Previously on “Caine’s crazy adventure”: I went 2-1 in the first 3 rounds of the tournament, getting tabled once, winning by scenario once and Trick-shotting Haley 2 to death in the third game. Crazy as it sounds, we as a team were undefeated at that point – one of 6 teams.

Which brings me to:

Game 4 – The ‘It is still a dice game’ Game

We draw team “Diced Cocks”, a few Warhammer converts (who did quite well in Warhammer I am told). And we also draw the video table. You can watch my game here, and if you go to Page5.de’s Channel you can watch the rest of our coverage at Heavy Metal Dayz.

Anyways – we pair off: Cygnar vs. Ret (me), Khador vs. Skorne (Bartek) and Ret vs...

Bonehammer’s Brewery: Gunny vs. Menoth and Skorne

Category: Battle ReportsWarmaHordes Comments: No comments

Krul looked back through the underbrush towards Captain Gunnbjörn. The troll warlock started an invocation while walking over to him, Krul could see the faint glow of the runes. Then he felt a surge of energy go through him. Both his scope and his rifle started glowing for a moment before fading back to that rusted brown.

Krul nodded and turned to his men. Putting his scope to his eye he surveyed the enemy lines. Inexplicably the enemy warcaster had exposed himself some in the middle of the enemy formation. Not something Krul would have expected from the old man.

The Bushwhacker leader gave his men a sign and as a unit they moved forward. Coming into view of the enemy he could see them starting to realize their mistake. But before the Menites could do anything, he ordered his men to aim and fire on Severius.

Adding all their strength to his own shot, Krul carefully aimed at the warcaster and the unit let loose one giant volley.

When the smoke cleared he couldn’t see Severius anymore. What he saw was his subordinates frantically running towards their leader, their warjacks powering down and most of the troops turning away and leaving the battle field.

“I think we are done here” Krul said to his men. They turned around and walked back to their kin.

Wargaming and stuff

Category: WarmaHordes Comments: No comments

Ok – lets get this thing started again and lets delve into other topics as well.

Wargaming. Specifically Warmachine/Hordes. I played it for a few years after discovering it 10 years ago. After a hiatus and a major overhaul of the game, me and a couple of friends got back into it at the beginning of the year.

Now we are smack dab in the middle of the tournament scene and are constantly training and building lists and throwing dice. For a club war between our club (Headblast in Oberhausen) and another one in Dortmund (PADF) we are currently holding try-outs. Last night was one such game.

I am ...
