End Times Campaign: Week 4

2015-04-27 22.04.37
Another week has went by folks, and the old world shakes before the onslaught of the chaos warbands from the north. Skaven have krept out of their holes and swarm the world, pinning armies both the the front and rear. It is a dark world for the people that inhabit the old world, but yet they hold out and fight.

So, once again we all gathered at Pegasus Games for another week of campaign play. We had seven players out, so we paired up a 2 on 1 to make up the difference. Here were this week’s match-ups.

  1. Undead Legion (Stark) vs. Skaven (Trevor)
  2. High Elves (Fred) vs. Ogres (Ben R.)
  3. Empire (Nick and Brian) vs. Warriors of Chaos (Conesy)

WWHFB Term 1 Play-offs

Well, if you didn’t know the Wisconsin Warhammer Fantasy Battles League has a regular play-offs 3 times a year. What happens is that for 3 months, players are encouraged to go to play games with other players who are registered as part of the club and then go to the website and enter the game. Using a ruleset, each game is scored a certain number of points for things like the size of the game, winning, losing, and if the army was painted. At the end of the three months the top four players who can manage to make it out to play-offs are invited to an event.

For the Winter/Spring term of 2015 we had 24 players score their games, so there was a lot of interest in league play. With the top four players then were invited to a traditional, single elimination two round event that was hosted at Pegasus Games on April 25, 2015. Our qualifying players were:

The End Times Campaign: Week 3

2015-04-20 21.34.59

The third week has been played out and good times were had by all of us that made it out. We had 6 of us out when we were making pairings so went with that. We had 2 more show up later, but it was too late for pairings as we were all playing and those two got to hang out and hobby. I will note that pairings were much more exciting with 5 players per team then three, but even then, there was strategy afoot in the pairings. While chaos has been on a tear with last week’s victories, order still controlled far more of the old world. With eyes set on the Battle for Karak Eight Peaks and the fall of Riekland, we paired up and played Warhammer.

  1. High Elves (Fred) vs Warriors of Chaos (Conesy)
  2. Dwarfs (Gordon) vs Skaven (Trevor)
  3. Empire (Nick) vs Ogres (Ben)

The End Times Campaign: Week 2

2015-04-13 21.56.52

Another week is in the books, and what a week it was! Huge shifts in the campaign this week as the games were played and things were fast and furious. This week we had 11 players out which helped get everyone excited. After some decision making of who would play who, it was on to the match ups. The forces of Chaos still very down on the number of locations controlled was able to pick first, and led the choices of match ups. Overall, this system seems to work pretty well and lends a real team aspect to things. One thing I will note, and it’s not in the rules pack, but if your group tends to pick the same match ups every week, then you should have a rule in place to force the match ups to be different opponents for the first few picks. When you get down to the last two picks or so, you can’t help things as we did have one repeat match up.

  1. Undead Legion (Stark) vs Ogres (Eric)
  2. Dwarfs (Gordon) vs Warriors of Chaos (Conesy)
  3. Empire (Nick) vs Ogres (Big Ben R.)
  4. High Elves (Fred) vs Warriors of Chaos (Brian)
  5. High Elves (Kenny K) vs Skaven (Trevor) vs Ogres (Aaron)

The End Times Campaign: Week 1

  • 2015-04-06 21.07.17

Week one of our End Times campaign is set and done, and wow, what a great night! So, let’s set this up a little. It’s Wisconsin. The state’s big school, University of Wisconsin – Madison’s college basketball team is playing for national championships. Most of the state is at a bar or in front of their TV and here we were, 10 dedicated Warhammer players gather at our favorite local game store in town, . People were excited too, a lot of folks there before the normal start time and everyone there plenty early, by quarter after 6.

So, teams were made of 5 players each and after some waiting for order to select their supreme commander we went into the choosing opponents. Wanting to lock in a sure win (well maybe not so sure, but…) I choose to have our skaven player (Trevor) match up against Dwarfs (Gordon). Order picked next, and matched up Lizardmen (Kenny) vs our Ogre recruits (Eric). The remaining match ups were selected below:

  1. Skaven (Trevor) vs. Dwarfs (Gordon)
  2. Lizardmen (Kenny) vs. Ogres (Eric)
  3. Orcs and Goblins (Paul) vs. Empire (Nick)
  4. Undead Legion (Stark) vs. Warriors of Chaos (myself)
  5. Warriors of Chaos (Brian) vs. High Elves (Fred)
