Beards, Robes and Fangs

A 10,000pt battle report featuring High Elves, Dwarves and an awful lot of Vampires...

On the principle that bigger equals better, a bunch of us decided to play a fairly substantial game for a change. The new Vampire Counts book had just been released, complete with incredibly expensive Vampire characters, so I was slightly amazed to find I could actually make a 5000pt army fairly easily (having over 2000pts just in Vampire Lords helped). The hugeness of it all attracted legions of bystanders, onlookers, hecklers and the like, some of whom handily came eqipped with cameras. Since we ended up with a ton of photos, I thought it'd be shame not to do something with them. Here follow my (probably incomplete and biased) recollections of a pretty big game between the noble alliance of High Elves (Greg) and Dwarves (Aaron) and the fiendish and black-hearted but impeccably-dressed Vampire Counts (Ben and Pete).

Axemaster 2007 Results

Here are the results for Axemaster 2007. Congratulations to the winners, and thanks to everybody who entered. We thought everything went pretty smoothly, and hopefully everybody had a good time.

Axemaster - Tales of a Destroyer

Over the past 2 days I played at Axemaster, a tournament run by the Hampton Games Club in my home suburb of Hampton. I used my trusty Tomb Kings with a slightly different list than I normally run, one with less magic and a Destroyer of Eternities wielding Tomb King to bludgeon people over the head with.

Club not on 22nd September

The Hampton Community Centre is closing for a while over the school holidays, and so the club won't be held on the 22nd of September.

I didnt realise JD2 was a week before I thought it was, so i had to paint prettymuch my whole army in a week. I did get this done, but most of it was the night before the tournament in a crazy paintingfest going untill 5am.
