    So … you are ‘in’ the north?!

    Part 60 of Tilea’s Troubles is now up – the prequel to a big battle report which I am very excited about.

    (Meanwhile, in the ‘present day’ of the campaign, I am frantically painting for a new, forthcoming battle. Even more exciting!)

    Cool Cool.

    Is Vogel based on Michael Caine from The Last Valley?

    I like that idea. Must watch that film again. It’s been a LONG time!

    Tilea’s Troubles, Part 61 is here.

    It is a big battle report in which a massive army of ogres take on a Tilean alliance army. Hard fighting indeed!

    Just wanted to say I read all your posts with avid attention, Padre, even though I rarely comment on them. The way you wargame is the way I aspire ro wargame!

    We get slapped around, but we have a good time!

    Blimey, but yay they won!!

    I have a technical question, how did the ogres kill 9, they only seem to be in B2B contact with 5 humans?

    I guess he is not based on him then?

    It is a great film, swap the Catholics and Protestants for Ulric and Sigmar and it is an Old World film!!

    I’ll have to have a look at the report. The only 9 hits I can recall now were against the cannon, which were more than enough to kill the three crew.

    It sometimes depends on exactly when the picture was taken. If I happen to snap the picture after casualty removal then it will indeed look odd. I make extensive notes but don’t always take in focus, useable pictures at the right moment! When I write the report I can only work with the pictures I managed to take.

    Settling in(to the north), Mike?

    Meanwhile, Tilea’s Troubles Part 62 has two stories, both about religious movements. One is schismatical, while the other is as heretical as you can get, being a mockery of religion itself! And boy do they hate each other!

    Getting there, still not summoned the courage to try ‘Chip Spice’…  😛

    Just about to start my own mini campaign, Terror of the Lichemaster! (in 10mm), so yes, starting to settle.

    Too much Nagash and not enough Morr kicking his boney ass!!

    I have to admit I have no idea what ‘chip spice’ is! Good luck in your campaign. (BTW, have you noticed how in Stranger Things the kids (on bikes) talk about the ‘campaign’ instead of the ‘scenario’ when referring to a single (if day long) session?

    That is odd, when I did RPGs, the campaign lasted about 1 to 2 years in real time and each session was just sitting down in one go and playing.
    Each session was sort of a chapter in the book, or a part of that chapter, and the book took, as noted a year or more to play.
    A campaign could be a number of scenarios and each scenario could be a number of sessions.

    Terror of the Lichemaster is a mini campaign comprised of 3 scenarios or battles.

    Exactly. Same for me. But in the TV series, ‘campaign’ = session = scenario

    We don’t like change.
    Except acrylics rather than enamels, how you getting on with them now?

    Still having some difficulties. Like how several Matt varnishes, even ultra Matt, leave shiny bits. Never had to varnish with enamels.

    Part 63 is a short, dramatised battle report of a relatively simple game. I believe I have adequately mastered campaign GMing but am still lacking real skill in commanding on the tabletop. My poor NPC realms!

    Halflings make their first appearance in my campaign. Of course, their little part of the world is a pleasant looking place. I would love to sup a pint with them! Part 64.

    I managed to get this one done a little quicker than usual. Tilea’s Troubles, Part 65 is ‘up’. Angelo da Leoni, the Reman maestro’s latest, wacky war-machine is revealed, and some politics are discussed, a Machiavellian tangle of secular and religious shenanigans!

    Cool as normal.

    Is this a big bendy bit of wood that slaps forwards and propels a load of darts?

    It is! I think I got it from bishop John Wilkins book of mathematical magic.

    Can’t see what could possibly go wrong with it. By the way when I once put the image up on another forum someone directed me to an Indian film which showed exactly just such a device in action. Marvellous. Impossible but marvellous.

    Not sure. It would take me a long time to find the original posts (could even have been facebook!). I tried google, but none of the images look right!

    I bet he loves gold, just not wearing it all fancy like! Solid bars of gold ftw.

    Back to doing goblin voices! (BTW, I am dreading the appearance of Skaven in the future, as I still can’t decide how I am going to their voices!)

    Part 67 of Tilea’s Troubles is now ‘up’, featuring some old characters (Pooshin Cotchwallop & Frokit Anglegrinch). Please see …

    Coolio!

    He reminds me of Ukko from Slaine for some reason:

    As for Skaven voices, do you have Audible?
    The voices done by Jonathan Keeble in his telling of the Gotrek and Felix books are excellent!

    I see exactly where you’re coming from.

    For those of you following the ‘present day’ edge of the campaign stories (which the videos are still years behind), I have decided that in order to save (lots of) time, I am going to start putting the new stories straight onto my Big Small Worlds website, and linking to them in the forums I frequent!

    So, here’s the latest story, being a prequel to a battle report …

    Skaven Slayers?
    No.
    Troll Slayers?
    No.
    Giant Slayers then!
    No.
    Then what…?

    Kraken Slayers!!!

     

     

    Are they after gold or a mighty doom though?

    Gold. They’re with the Sartosan fleet/army, so they want gold!

    Tilea’s Troubles, Part 68 is uploaded. Glammerscale Hamgorn, the dwarf wizard, continues his efforts to find a place in the world!
