Tom & Tortiou proudly present
Live from Vienna, Austria, a TBMF&TBMB exclusive
BORING MEETUP BATTLE REPORT
written by Tortiou

As usual, you can also read this report on TBMB!

Chapter Four - Kings of the Hill

The last scenario we played was a "King of the hill" type of scenario: we determined an elevated area, consisting of two buildings, in the center of the board, and the objective of the players was to occupy that
area with as many warriors as possible.

Boehm placing the last piece of scenery near the objective:


Close-up of the objective: any model standing in the red area after 6 turns brings in 1 Victory Point for
his team:




For this game, we decided to form three teams:

Team 1: Admin Tom (Witch Hunters) + Matt (Possessed)
Team 2: Boehm (Dwarves) + Erkwin (Reiklanders)
Team 3: Tortiou (Reiklanders) + Lanyssa Ryssyll (Dwarves)

Lanyssa Ryssyll and Tortiou, starting to the south of the table, divided their strike force:


Admin Tom and Matt, forming an unusual and rather surprising team of Witch Hunters and Possessed (yes we know, fluff wouldn't normally allow it, but did it for variability's sake), started to the North-West of the table:


They were almost face to face with Erkwin and Boehm's team, which showed up to the North-East:


One of Erkwin's marksmen covers the advance of his teammates:

At this time, the central position is still unoccupied:


Team 2 on the move!! (I just love this pic!)


Tom's and Matt's warriors decide to rush towards the south... but soon encounter some light resistance from
Tortiou and Lanyssa's team:



Two flagellants and Karol ambushing Lanyssa's binge-drinking dwarf:


Matt pushed his luck a bit too far, and charged the whole Team 2 with a single model (the now-famous Krackatoaaar):


Needless to say: the poor Krackatoar (in the centre of the picture) received volley after volley of arrows,
and finally expired and met its maker:



One of Tortiou's archers takes a firing position:


Erkwin's marksman watching the scene from a safe distance:


Even though Krackatoar just bit the dust, Matt keeps smiling!


As the end of the game approaches, Team 3 decides to rush inside the objective area:


Don Salchichón, Tortiou's hired freelancer knight, charges Matt's possessed and tries to hinder the advance of Team 1:


The close combat taking place between Team 1 (Tom+Matt) and Team 3
(Tortiou+Lanyssa) involves flagellants, Karol the possessed, two dwarves and Don Salchichón. Despite his strong armour save (3+), the Knight is put OOA by Karol right after his charge. Lanyssa's two remaining dwarves manage to hold their position for one more turn, delaying Tom and Matt and allowing the rest of their teammates to occupy the building.

Captain Tortiou's Reiklanders, storming the objective area:


Meanwhile, Team 2 (Boehm and Erkwin) uses the occasion to enter the area from the North:


Three Reiklanders from Erkwin's team manage to climb on the northeastern corner of the objective area:


The showdown is inevitable: the two teams clash in the centre of the objective area, inside the ruins. The fight is brutal, violent, bloody.
Who will be the King of the Hill?king


The objective area at the end of turn 6:


Captain Tortiou manages to kill one of Erkwin's champions with a well-aimed headshot from his duelling
pistol:



At the end of turn 6, the objective area was occupied by:
-Team 2 (Boehm + Erkwin) : 10 warriors
-Team 3 (Tortiou + Lanyssa Ryssyll) : 10 warriors
-Team 1 (Matt + Tom) : 1 dog Laughing

Thus, the game was declared a draw between Team 2 and Team 3.

However, both teams were given +1XP for their leaders because of the spectacular showdown!

Tortiou and Erkwin vehemently discussing the fight during the post-battle sequence:

(actually, they are just posing for the picture... Suspect)

This is how Tom's Boring Mordheim Meetup ended. After this game, we all went to the city centre of Vienna to have a nice lunch (with beer!) in a nice tavern. We all had some excellent goblin steak roasted à la viennese (only 13gc)
but Matt wanted to sacrifice the waiter to the unholy Khorne so we were actually asked to leave.

Matt getting ready to take on a huge "Speckbrot":



Tortiou discussing "sniper" rules for Mordheim with Boehm.


And here's a last shot of the whole Boring Meetup 2008 crew (munchin' away at those delicious 50cm breads I love you )



Conclusively I would like to say that this Meetup was really awesome, not only because the games all went smoothly and were fun and
interesting, but also because every single participant was cool, nice, and geekishly crazy! jocolor

Thank you Erkwin, Matt, Boehm and Lanyssa Ryssyll!
And of course a big "Cheers mate !" to the incredible Admin Tom who moved heaven and earth to make this Meetup possible, and without whom all these games would never have taken place...
Sir, yes sir! respect, mon gars!

And finally thanks to you for reading all this! cyclops

again Awesomely written Smile

Khan's story continues ;

Quote :

Great King Leonardo, We thought the night would be quite cause we slaughterd the deamons, but in the early morning a second group attacked us. we weren't prepared at all and a lot of my man died this morning. I've send my fastest horse to deliver this letter, please help us. we also found another letter, but what I read in that must make Sigmar very angry. but please, send us help and reinforcements, one of my only knights is dying in my arm, slowly mutating, and our priest got killed. Most of our horses are dead, but some still stand up and run away with a possessed look in their eyes. we won't make it if we get attacked again, and if the letter passes us it's up to the dwarfs. I'm affraid they'll take it to the Chaos Dwarfs and call for back up. I've bound the Letter to this Letter again, but still I'd make the high priest check it.
Please send help, The Red Order at the Dwarven borderlands

Thanks for sharing guys!

I really loved the terrain you guys used. I will try to get pics of mine again. It has been a few years and I will see if I can find what photo server I placed them on as Yahoo Photos is no longer around.

I loved the figs, someone did a great job on the swordsmen in front of a set of stairs.


It is nice to put a face with a username.

GREAT IDEA! As a ham actor in my college days, I have a lot of experience "chewing on the scenery." Suspect

I really like the terrain you guys used. I am getting ready to paint the terrain we built this week.

How do you get the great looking smoke damage effect? Spray painting or using chalks? Or do you paint it in washes - I would really appreciate a few tips as to how to do that awesome smoke damage inside the buildings and also at the windows!

I just carefully make burn marks by spraying little bursts of black primer on the building. It's the "poor man's solution" if you don't own an airbrush.
