Monster Week!

Quote :


Each warband is entitled to a lesser monster of their choice (Ogre, Troll, Ratogre, Minotaur, Kroxigor or any other creature on a 40mm base with the large target special rule) on top of any warband restriction. This creature is bound to the warband, does not gain experience and does not count towards the warband size or rating. If it survives the week it may be used in the finale game on Saturday 29th October

The Ogresuns - Weathering the Storm

The Bilge Rat


Hogbreff took small lantern, that normal swung from the ceiling beams, down and cast around the wooden-walled chamber: it only dimly illuminated the darkness. The stench of stale rum, rotten supplies, dead fish, bilge-water and the castings off of a large and unhygienic Orc pirate crew was overpowering to say the least. Things moved in the shadowy corners. The Shaman looked at the Kommodore out of the corner of his eye.

Deffgit and Hogbreff ventured down into the dank lower-hold of the hulking pirate ship Ogresun – a place where most of the crew superstitiously feared to tread. Deffgit had been distant and distracted lately but he was dead-set on this strange plan and none of the ship’s offices had been able to talk him out of it – and not for want of trying!

As the two Orc pirates climbed down the steep stairs into the orlop the darkness was almost like a solid object, the lantern barely penetrated and distance. Piles of old barrels and crates were stacked up around them, lashed onto the huge timbers that were the bases of the great ship’s masts at their deepest point.

Deffgit took out an old rusted key and pushed it into a lock. With no small amount of effort the lock finally gave way and opened, the door it held swung noisily on ancient unused hinges. The Kommodore pushed Hogbreff forward into the last room. In the darkness heavy chains rattled.

The Plague Covenant - The Storming Plague

Godfather Viktor wrote:
The Plague Covenant vs the Ogresuns & the Redtoof Tribe
"Street" Brawl in the deep jungle


Just after routing the Norscans, the Covenant stumbled upon a column of refugees escaping from the fury of the Storm.
Skabius ordered them to be killed, but the diminuitive Skurv suggested to save a few to be questioned.
The familiar had it right, as the man-things mentioned a ruin they passed. A ruin which looked a lot like the legendary Al-Aziz's palace. Exactly the kind of magic-imbued place where Skabius could have completed his plague.

So, the following day the Covenant ventured deep into the jungle to find the Palace.


From the top of a rocky arc, Poxus spotted the Ogresuns huddled around an orcish idol and the Redteef creeping through the jungle.



The greenskins looked suspiciously friendly, and even more worring, both warbands had some big creatures following them. Skabius didn't waste a moment and moved toward the more dangerous Ogresuns. Poxus braced his crossbow and let loose a couple of bolts, but to no avail.


The Ogresuns came forward, an over-filty ratogre opening their column.


So did the Redteef, their boss well ahead and a strange-looking bird shumbling on the rear.


They were cooperating and trying to encircle the Covenant, so Infectius was sent forward to deal with the Ogresuns' ratogre.


Caboteur unleashed a storm of lightining against the Covenant and scattered their first line.


The Redteef advanced a little more, their hungry bird joining the boss.


Skabius led the second line against the Ogresuns and unleashed the Horned One's pestilence.


Suddenly, the Dread-rat went crazy and charged Festerus. Luckly for the Monk, the mutated creature only managed to stun him.


The Redteef prodded the huge bird, and the enraged beast charged the Filty Staves, instantly killing one.


The feathered goblins unleashed a volley of arrows, more Skaven and Malatesta fell.


Bilius started reciting the Liturgicus Infecticus and the Covenant fought with renovated fury, routing the Ogresuns and then turning against the Redteef.


Skabius spell get rid of the more distant goblins and with the help of the now sane Dread-rat of the hungry bird.
Bilius and Infectius joined their efforts, and once the censer smoke cleared both the goblin Boss and his multi-legged steed were down.

Their fury not yet seeted, Bilius and Infectius carried on onto the goblins recovering from Skabius' spell.


Skabius chuckled while the goblins panicked and ru away. So long for the green-things alliance!

What he didn't notice, was Malatesta waking up, an enourmous bruise where his forehead had hitten a rock when falling.
"Who are you?" the wizard stuttered at the closest skaven.
"What am I doing here? I can't...I can't recall. But at least you're not any of Caboteur's lot. I have a proposal for you...".

The Ogresuns - Weathering the Storm

In the Cold of the Night

The Ogresuns and the Red Toof Tribe gang-up to take down the Plague Covenant

After collecting a numerous (if diminutive) allied warband and a monsterous heavy hitter from bellow decks (equal to that of at one of their enemy’s) the Ogresun pirates went hunting. The Red Toof Tribe were expert trackers so the pirates let the local Goblins do what they did best and they found the pestilent Skaven in no time.

















The two rat Ogres charged and slugged it out – each tearing lumps out of the other but neither gaining the upper-hand.





Mattius blasted the Skaven front rank with Winter’s Frost, a hurricane of icy lightning tore through them.



Not many were killed but several were stunned by the force of the magical weather.





Deffgit rushed into the fray while Salty stood watching his back.







When the evil magics of Skabius felled over a quarter of the Ogresuns in one gaseous explosion the Orcs ran and left the Goblins to their fate.

Quote :


In ages past, the Tower of Nakh already materialised on Sartosa. Legend has it that a half-mad Arabyan wizard known as Ibn Al Aziz studied it extensively deep into the Sartosan jungle. Al Aziz had a palace built there, the very bricks and tiles moulded with warpstone and laid in such a way to channel the Winds of Magic to help locate and fix the Tower. The ruins of Al Aziz’s palace have been finally discovered. While the Storm is reaching its peak, many wizards are leading their forces to seize them.

Set-up
Place a suitable, mid-sized ruin in the centre of the table to represent Al Aziz’s palace. Set up the rest of the table as normal, but do not place the Mermaid Emporium.

Deployment & Starting the game
As per the normal multiplayer rules.

Winning the game
No Route tests are taken. Play the game to an agreed number of turns or time limit. The warband that has more wizards (or Windcatchers) inside Al Aziz’s palace at the end of the game is the winner.

The Raging Storm
At the end of every game turn roll on the following table to determine the effects of the Storm of Magic.

    2D6 Event
    2-3 The Mermaid Emporium disappears and reappears 3D6" away in a random direction. If the Mermaid Emporium hasn’t appeared yet, treat this result as 4-5 instead.
    4-5 A random player can move a wood of his choice D6" in any direction. No player can move another wood until all players have had a chance at it.
    6 A zombie moves in a random direction from the edge of Al Aziz’s palace. In the following turns it will move toward the closest visible model, charging if possible.
    7 The Mermaid Emporium appears 4D6" away from the centre of Al Aziz’s palace in a random direction. If this result is rolled again, a random Lesser Magic spell is cast in a random direction hitting the first model in range. Measure from the edges of the Emporium.
    8 A random daemon appears in the centre of Al Aziz’s palace. It will act as per the Daemon Week rules. Once all the daemons have appeared treat this result as 6 instead.
    9-10 A random player can move a hill of his choice D6" in any direction. No player can move another hill until all players have had a chance at it.
    11-12 The Mermaid Emporium disappears and reappears 3D6" away in a random direction. If the Mermaid Emporium hasn’t appeared yet, treat this result as 9-10 instead.


Every model moved over or touched by a moving terrain must pass an Initiative test or suffer a S3 hit.

Experience
As normal, including extra experience for banishing daemons.

The Plague Covenant - The Storming Plague

Godfather Viktor wrote:
The Grand Finale
Battle for Al-Aziz's Palace

The rusty gates to Al-Aziz's Palace swung in the storming Winds.


Ghostly figures drifted through the vegetation, moaning as they felt the scent of fresh souls approaching.



The ruins of the Palace themself sat broadly on top of a flat hill, like a spider patentiently awaiting for its prey.


High on warpstone brew, the Plague Covenant approached the ruins ignoring the howling spirits. Skabius sent Poxus up a rock with the only order of sniping at every wizard that was not on their side.


Neither the Ogresuns seemed to worry about the tormented souls moving around them.


The Red Toof Tribe creeped forward prodding their huge bird.


Odin's Black Orcs arrived on the scene beating their shields.


They suddenly fell silent as the Windcatcher's features blurred and shifted.
As they settled into a multi-armed, hooded figure, the Norscan started chanting a single word: Tzork


There was a sudden movement inside Al-Aziz's Palace as three goblins made their way to the surface from some hidden dungeon.


The Ogresuns filed up toward the hill, shouting abuses at the little greenskins.


The Norscan rushed forward, their chanting to Tzork even louder than the pirates' abuses. But suddenly the wood they were circling came to life and moved to envelop them.


The Redteef run forward to their mates help.


Infectius and the Covenant's troll climbed up the hill to find the Bilge Rat and a very drunken Deffgit awaiting for them.


Wary of the dangers posed by the wood themselves, the Ogresuns advanced slowly behind their leader.


The Black Orcs disentagled themselves from the eldritch wood finding themselves scattered and with the nuttaz running howling at the slowest pirates.


The Red Toof chief arrived on the hill and ordered one of the goblins hiding in the ruin to charge the Bilge Rat while the angry bird slammed onto the Covenant's troll.


The rest of the goblins loose their arrows at the Dread-rat as it was slowly approaching them.


The Covenant arrived on the hill and a huge fight ensued. The two ratogres clashed, the troll and the bird continued their struggle, with skaven, orcs and goblins each supporting their large creatures.


Skabius' pestilence took its toll both in orcs and goblins, but it was not enough to avoid Infectius being felled by Deffgit.


On the other side of the hill, close to the pumpkin field, a fight erupted between the nuttaz and some pirates.


But the more sensible Norscans grouped with the pirates and prepared to join the fight on the other side of the Palace.


The Red Toof Chief goaded its spider against Skabius.


The massed combat escalated as more orcs and skaven joined in and Infectius rose up again.


From his rocky perch, Poxus had already downed Caboteur and the Red Toof shaman. He was aiming at Wyrdtoof when a sudden gale put the rock into motion. Unprepared, the sniper lost his footing and plummeted down.


The fight in the pumpkin field continued, the orcs on both sides enjoying the bash.


So did the combat in the Palace. Skabius and his henchmen managed to fell both the Red Toof Chief and his spider, but Festerus was unable to save the badly wounded Infectius.


Igor spied the combat through the Palace door and repared to join into the fray.


Meanwhile, sneakely staying away, the Redtoof' warlock turned himself into a feral bear.


Igor sprung into action supported by Olaf. The two hulking orcs trashed Skabius as he was drawing breath after the fight with the spider.


A brave goblin dared to charge the Dread-rat. The monster carelessly smeared him against a wall.


And then throw itself onto the Black Orcs while the Covenant rushed forward to protect Malatesta from the pirates.


An eldritch lightining hit the palace and the corpse of a long dead adventurer rose to drag Noggin to the ground.


The Covenant henchmen finally managed to kill the Bilge Rat, but then another heavy weight get in. Growling and snorting the Norscans' spawn raged against the Dread-rat.


The bloodshed in the pumpikin field attracted the attentions of Bloodskull Deathbringer.


The Bloodletter charged one of the nuttaz as he was trying to join the fight in the Palace.


But Khork (or possibly Tzork) was pleased with the madened orc and the daemon was banished.


Attacked on all side, the Covenant numbers were quickly going down. Worse of all, the rear ranks of the Redteef turned Malatesta into a pin-cushion.


Their wizard, confident in his bear form and in the fact that the Skaven were no longer a threat, rushed into the Palace. Only to be smacked down by an enraged Wyrdtoof waving a club of green light.



Odin led the Norscan against Wyrdtoof while the Boarwolf gorged on the fallen human warlock. Savouring victory, the Changeling floated to the upper floor.


The nuttaz continued their rampage through the rear ranks of the Ogresuns.


Noggin and the Nogs kept the Redteef out of the Palace.


But some managed to sneak in along with the few surviving Skaven. One even managed to reach the Changeling, in spite of the cunning daemon having drawn away the only ladder up.


The fight raged in the Palace.
Although surrounded, Wyrdtoof didn't yeld to the Black Orcs.
The Changeling danced around the skaven avoiding his blades.
The Boarwolf slashed at skaven and goblins alike.

And so it was that when the Storm finally released all its fury, no wizard was able to use the Palace arcane structure to channel the Winds power.

The ghosts darted from the woods to the ruin clawing at the fighters.
A whirlwind of magic scourged the hill scattering orcs, goblins and skaven all around.

Skabius came to his senses to witness the havok. And to catch a fleeting glimpse of the Tower of Nakh as it materialised close to Al-Aziz's Palace and was then blown away by the Winds.

As the Winds abated, the Plague Priest cursed the greenskins. They had robbed him of his chance to rise to greatness in Skavendom.
But at least he had achieved more than any other Skaven in Sartosa. And his plague, altough not perfect, was enough to buy him a place of influence in Skavenblight.

The Ogresuns - Weathering the Storm

The End of the Storm – The Battle for Al-Aziz's Palace
Ogresuns vs. Odin and the Black Orcs of Norsca vs. The Plague Covenant vs. The Red Tooth Tribe







“Roight ladz, dis is it! The last big’un (not you Dredger), the last big push. If we can take dis ruined palace then Wyrdtoof will be able to use the power of the storm to get into that Tower of Nakh and all the loot will be ours! Undreamt-of wealth and that.” said Kommodore Deffgit in his most inspirational voice. “Look around you mates. This place is riddled with graves and tombs and morsoliums... morsoleeums.. more tombs. There’ll be a might of dead-unz all over I don’t doubt so keep yer lucky charms, trinkets and gulls-feet what I gaves yer close to hand – none of them dead-unz will come near ye if’n you’ve got yer gee-gaws to fend ‘em off.”



“Roight! Now! Run to dat building on the hill!” he yelled.



“Look out, it’s dem Norscans!” cried Nastyface “You two Ladz stay in the pumpkin field and sort out the red-painted beggers!”







“Them ratty beggers is here an’ all!” roared Deffgit “Get ‘em! Don’t let ‘em in the house!”











“Here comes the red-paint brigade! Give the gitz what for ladz!” called Dredger as he followed Deffgit up the hill.





“I can’t see no one coming up frum be’ind… I ain’t staying ‘ere all zoggin’ day mate.” Grumbled Blackspot.







“Rrrrrraaagh!” roared the Bilge Rat as Infectius and he clawed each-other to shreads.

“Don’t worry, I got ye stinkin’ back, beastie!” called Deffgit as he hurled himself at the enemy Rat Ogre, boarding axe in one hand and belaying pin in the other.





“Eeeeek!” “Eurgh!” “Arrrgh!” said various pirates.









“Don’t breath that smoke! Cough cough cough!” said Poxy Uzbad as he breathed in the noxious stuff and keeled over.





“Da red gitz is breaking through! “ yelled Bad Hook “We gotta stop ‘em from getting to Mr Hogbreff!”








“Yaaarrrgh! I’m comin’ mates!” bawled Blackspot as he finally realised he was looking the wrong way and ran at the Nuttaz.





“Move your stinkin’ hides, ye scurvy-riddled lubbers!” called Nastyface from the back of the mob, frustrated that he couldn’t get to the action.















“Zombie!” called a Norscan Orc.



“Got ‘im!” replied another Norscan.


“That’s it, that big scratcher is delt with, get yourself in the house Wyrdtoof! We’ll hold here!”







“Daemon!” called a Norscan Nutta.



“Got ‘im!” replied the same Norscan Nutta.



“Oi! Gerrof!” said Wyrdtoof as he pushed his way through the door.



“Somebody did for that Malatesta – he’s been knocked on the ‘ead!” said Deffgit.



“Who’s dat git up der? I ain’t seen ‘im afore!” said Nastyface.



“Rrrraaaaarrrrgh!” roared… well.. everyone!



“Ugh! A Troll! Why ain’t we never got one of dem?” said Boathook Og.



“What that out for that scaly looking big fella!”



“It’s all down to you Wyrdtoof! If you can hold off all them Black Orcs and maybe kill dat floaty lad with all the arms…” yelled Deffgit through a shattered window.



“I. Know. Dat!” said Wyrdtoof
