It’s been far too long since my last game of Warmaster. Looking at the posts on here, the last one I talked about was just over a year ago! Has it been that long? I’m really not sure. Sometimes time flies. Sometimes we plan on playing games, and may even get to pulling all our figures out, and then just start talking and lose track of time.
Surely I’ve played since then. No idea to be honest. But Dave and I spoke about it over the last few weeks, and he’s moving back to his hometown in a couple of weeks, so we decided to try harder this time. Plus, he painted some Empire knights specially. If you look closely at the minis, he actually hadn’t finished painting a full 1000 point force, so he used some of my Dwarfs as stand-ins.
It was nice actually, because we’re usually playing Warmaster Undead vs Undead, so this was a pleasant change. Although, we had to try and remember (and find them in the rulebook) the terror rules because we’d been so used to ignoring them before. 🙂
I didn’t take any notes of the game, so this isn’t a battle report, but I took pictures of notable points in the game. Warning this is very image heavy.
First, the precursor, pulling out some (yes this isn’t all of them) of my Undead before I prepped the table.
Here’s one of my chariots flanking one of the Empire halberdiers looking awfully like dwarfs. Don’t hold that against them. And in behind them with the sandy bases is a unit of raised skeleton warriors. They really come in handy sometimes. Especially when the liche priests are able to summon them on any side.
I love Warmaster so much.
Over the Christmas break, I will try and finish the Chaos Warmaster minis I picked up at a con last year and hopefully rope in someone else to play with the Undead or the Dwarfs. Tune in for painting and gaming updates on that too.
