Lord Von Kurst your work and battle reports are wonderful. I am a huge fan of your exploits in Tlax the city of ghosts; your terrain collection looks very much like pieces of the old City of Hexocoatl.

I love the tiny details you work into your terrain and miniatures, everything from swords on top of a bookshelf, netting around a pile of boxes down by the shipping wharf, and even one of your imperial looking minis running around in a jaguar (or leopard?) skin cloak! And I love how you have made your spawning pools and river tiles, such great inspiration!

Thank you very much. Our terrain is a bit of a hodgepodge.  Not only is it a combination of whatever we bring that night, neither Jim L or myself have a singular style for our own collections so there is a bit of variety.

"looks very much like pieces of the old City of Hexocoatl"--Good eye.  Jim L built a copy of the French Games Day terrain for our own Lustria campaign's sieges back in the day.  He has enough for a 4x6 table (I think. It has been ten years or more since it was all on a table at once.)  Nowadays he just grabs a random box of it, in addition to the other stuff he brings.

Dead Man's Hand--Haunted Treasure
The Undead race the Old Guard to steal The Ghoul King's treasure

Chis and Jim L were unavailable this week.  So John and I got together for Sundayheim.  The plot is that a renegade Ghoul King haunts the City of Ghosts.  The Undead have tracked the Ghoul King to his lair, but foolish mortals interfere...

It was a clear night in Lustria.  The Old Guard drained a keg of Bugman's Ale and ventured into the City of Ghosts...

Hadji suffered -1 Toughness from the Pirate Curse.  He got better. (I forgot the possibility of using the Witch's potion for another game...)

Here the foolish scout Anibal has been dispatched by the Ghoul King and his minions. (Anibal has already been removed)  The Old Guard look on in shock.
Pyrates of the Karribean VI.a--Dead Man's Hand - Page 7 47a8d937b3127cce98549eaf810500000010100AbOXDRkzbMmWA

The fleet (but slightly crippled) vampire and his sprinting necromancer slip past the distracted guards and grab the treasure!  (On your left the Ogre and his friends have slaughtered the ghouls guarding that side...
Pyrates of the Karribean VI.a--Dead Man's Hand - Page 7 47a8d937b3127cce98549eac003600000010100AbOXDRkzbMmWA

The sprinting necromancer reaches the treasure (a black bead) and stuns a ghoul with a sneaky spell.  The vampire will take care of the other guard later... (Also a work in progress shot of my newest terrain feature)
Pyrates of the Karribean VI.a--Dead Man's Hand - Page 7 47a8d937b3127cce98549ead810700000010100AbOXDRkzbMmWA

I roll the event Vampire Bats!  The Bats swoop in and send one of the invading ghouls out of action.  Go Bats!  (Then the ogre and friends kill the bats...)

Captain de Guzman and Hadj shoot the Ghoul King down (I roll a lot of sixes in a row. Yeah me!) Almah charges and eventually destroys a ghoul minion.  Jaun kills another. (The other crawls away into the jungle...)

Suddenly the night is invaded by pesky swamp flies from the nearby river.  All living combatants suffer -1 WS and BS.

It is too late.  Denn die Todten reiten Schnell (At the end of the third turn the vampire and necromancer are nearly off the table. They will be gone at the beginning of the 4th turn.)
Pyrates of the Karribean VI.a--Dead Man's Hand - Page 7 47a8d937b3127cce98549eab810100000010100AbOXDRkzbMmWA

Their dim torches illuminate Fat Edric standing over the impaled body of one massive abomination in a corridor of massive stone blocks.  Cruelly hacked bodies of smaller abominations littered stones around him, but the fabled treasure was gone.  The night rang with mocking laughter, then there was silence.


The Old Guard only suffered the swordsman Anibal of action.  He got better.  In the ruins the Old Guard discover a forgotten dungeon cell occupied by several unfortunate captives.  The swordsman Caspar joins the crew once he is freed from the prison.  The Old Guard find 2 lucky charms on sale and one dose of Healing Herbs.  Fat Edric creates a Rabbit's Foot to replace the one stolen from Francisco.

The Undead liberate the Ghoul King's treasure for the victory.  For once they gain no Underdog Bonus from the Old Guard! (The Old Guard lost over 100 points of warband rating last week) However the ghoul taken out of action by the Vampire Bats contracts the Curse of the Blood Drinker!  It is now a were-vampire bat (Thing in the Woods).  The other hench-ghoul recovers and so does the pesky ghoul hero (even with a spear sticking out him!).

The fabulous treasure turns out to be some dust and 10gc. (Like all the other fabulous treasures in this cursed campaign...)

Hopefully we will be able to have a regular game night this coming week...

Just two players & all the warriors manage to survive. Difficult to see a decisive victory in a result like that... but I'm sure next time you'll be back to a multi-directional bloodbath!

Thank you gents.

John is wary of committing the Undead to a fight with the Old Guard, which is nice.  Plus he did fulfill the objective of the scenario, which is rare in a Mordheim fight.

Otherwise your comment is spot on:
_________________________________________________________________________________
Dead Man's Hand--A Treasure Hunt in the City of Ghosts
The Old Guard, New Estalians and Bay Watch fight over shiny treasure

John was prevented from attending game night this week. Another bloodbath ensued. (Although the actual body count was comparatively low compared to a couple weeks ago...)

There were 4 treasures to fight over.  The Bay Watch won the roll to set up first and were assured 2 treasures right off the bat. (Even though they ended up moving last.)
End of turn one (the 'new piece' has a ruined roof now, all photos by Jim "Old One Eye" L.)

The New Estalians have decided to shoot Bay Watchers.  This lessens their later argument that the Old Guard are the biggest threat to both warbands, so Bay Watchers should shoot them first (even though it is true.)
Pyrates of the Karribean VI.a--Dead Man's Hand - Page 7 47a8d938b3127cce98549e950f9200000010100AbOXDRkzbMmWA

Kind of backwards, but this is the New Estalian position at the end of turn 1 (stupid Friendly Flag).

And the Old Guard.  In the far distance the complete ruin of the Temple of The Toad is visible.  The Temple collapsed in the New Estalian turn.

Kill the Witch (um, Warlock) He got better.

Turn 3: Lots of fighting, shooting and such.  The New Estalians grab a treasure.

Crossbows on the hills! (Using rubber tipped arrows, thank goodness!)

The Bay Watch charges!

Al Bobo (now in Bay Watch blue) takes a hand.

More general melee (with sniping that doesn't do much).

The New Estalians get whittled down, though several of the Old Guard fall as well... Two events that happened the Last Time happen again.  Hands of Stone (which holds those Estalians in front of that blunderbuss) and Storm of Chaos (which causes Captain de Guzman, Critter and Slim to be chosen as Champions of the Gods...)

Escaping with the treasure

Al Bobo attacks the hired Tilean (last of his kind).

Pyrates of the Karribean VI.a--Dead Man's Hand - Page 7 47a8d938b3127cce98549e8c8ebb00000010100AbOXDRkzbMmWA

The New Estalians rout with 9 henchmen, hired swords and one hero out of action. (10 out of 17 total.)

The Old Guard have five warriors out of action (but one is swab, so he doesn't count).  The Bay Watch must cause one more causality to force a rout.  And Juan is down...
Pyrates of the Karribean VI.a--Dead Man's Hand - Page 7 47a8d938b3127cce98549e828eb500000010100AbOXDRkzbMmWA

Juan survives.  The Bay Watch henchmen on the stair are all cut down.  Captain de Guzman leaps off of the temple to attack Critter! (Critter has the shiny green treasure)
Pyrates of the Karribean VI.a--Dead Man's Hand - Page 7 47a8d938b3127cce98549e850f8200000010100AbOXDRkzbMmWA

The end is near.  Critter (and his 3 wounds is out of action).  Beardy II (with his three wounds reduced to 1 by Almah) is about to be charged by Francisco.  Mrs Wolfgang has been charged by The New Champion of the Gods Captain de Guzman.
Pyrates of the Karribean VI.a--Dead Man's Hand - Page 7 47a8d938b3127cce98549e848eb300000010100AbOXDRkzbMmWA

The Bay Watch flee with 8 warriors out of action (out of 12 warriors total), including Critter, Beardy II and Mrs. Wolfgang.

The New Estalians only lose one crewman, killed by Almah.  Two Swords almost dies, but is saved by the Medicine Chest and only loses an eye.  They gain one treasure from the scenario

The Bay Watch suffer three henchmen captured (2 by the Old Guard and one by the New Estalians). Beardy II and Critter recover from their wounds, but Mrs Wolfgang is robbed. The Bay Watch steal an exotic animal hide from a skink hunter in exploration and gain one treasure from the scenario.

The Old Guard win and gain 2 treasures from the scenario.  The swordsman Caspar, who was rescued from a dungeon last week, dies.  The Esmeralda the Witch dies.  The Old Guard capture the Bay Watch's last handgunner (and a random guy with a club.)  Another witch returns a favor.

Side note: There are five blunderbusses left in the campaign.  The New Estalians and Bay Watch fired all of theirs.  The Old Guard once again bumbled about for the entire game looking for 'that shot' which never appeared.  On the other hand, both of the New Estalian gunners and the lone Baywatcher were out of action at the end of the fight...

Jim L (Old One Eye) had an operation on his left eye recently. I think he missed an opportunity by not wearing an eye patch to game night. I mean pirates, right? But there was definitely some intimidation when he would look at you before rolling the dice. The photos turned out great considering. (And in general he did pretty good at moving models without depth perception. His dice rolling did not improve.)

Thanks gents! Jim L seems to be recovering on schedule, but it will be awhile before that left eye heals... Jim apparently feels the patch-less look is more intimidating to his opponents. Still hasn't helped his dice rolling...

We all made game night (even Kevin, aka Aceofspades, who dropped by to say hello at least).

Seven New Estalians try to block Almah and the Man With No Name (who was reported dead, but of course wasn't).

Big melee everywhere!
So what happened was Francisco charged the gunner with the empty blunderbuss. Then three New Estalian heroes charged Francisco. Then the rest of the Old Guard charged

Enrico II charges a downed crewman (removed). Almah fights everbody else.

Even though they are outnumbered, there still seem to be endless waves of New Estalians (at least where they are needed.)

The Old Guard win when Diego Rivera and Anibal gain the New Estalian table edge.

The stubborn New Estalians lose the Red Warlock killed and a crewman captured. Two Swords suffers an Old Battle Wound. Slim now has a nervous condition. The other hero fully recovered.

The Old Guard lost Enrico II and Jaun de Palma II killed. The Old Guard gain some treasure and drink up their supply of grog at Jaun's wake.

Coming soon Haunted Treasure Redux.

Haunted Treasure in the City of Ghosts
The Bay Watch clash with the Undead.

The Bay Watch have been the bane of the Undead warband this campaign, but all things must end...

Once again the Ghoul King's treasure hoard is targeted by jealous rivals.  And once again he fails to defend it.

No real damage to the Undead from skeletons or ghouls, but Jim's Captain eventually killed off my d.e. assassin and a wolf while I took out a couple of his henchmen and heroes in the middle.  

He eventually routed voluntarily and I think a few of his guys died and Al Bobo bailed on him.  Had a major score with the treasure when I got both a major and minor artifact (the Star Tablet and Stegadon Armor) and a bunch of gold.  Rehired the dead wolf and will spend the rest on a hired sword to replace the assassin.

Dead Man's Hand--The Great Gen Con Massacre

Gen Con was in Indianapolis last week.  John and Jim L were off to the convention,  but Chris an I never go on a week day.  So we made game night.  It was a fateful decision...

Captain de Guzman charged down the ancient temple steps.  The fool who attempted to kill him cowered back into the jungle, but he was too slow.  The Captain caught him well before the gunner could reach safety.  Hadji and Diego Rivera were hard on their captain's heels.  The gunner raised his blunderbuss to block their blows, again he was too slow.  The Captain laid him low with an expert slash.

The trap had been laid.  The Red Warlock stepped from the shadows, mumbling his curse.  Silver arrows leapt from the Warlock's fingertips.  The Captain easily avoided the missiles.  Then disaster struck.  As the Captain dodged one attack he was mortally wounded by another.  The notorious Julio had been cowering behind a frog sphinx.  He stepped from behind the sphinx and leveled a dueling pistol at the distracted warrior's back.

As the Captain fell, Hadj raised his blunderbuss and fired it full into Julio's chest!  But the hated pirate had magical protection!  Not only did Julio avoid injury, but the rest of the New Estalian leadership (who were grouped behind the assassin) did as well.  Only Two Swords was wounded by the shot, and she was only knocked down!

To add insult to injury, Diego failed to catch the Red Warlock in the jungle thicket.  But as the Warlock fled he cast his arrow cantrip.  One of the magical missiles caught Diego in the thigh.  The day's butcher bill would be high.  Francisco ordered the survivors to flee.


The Old Guard lost a simple skirmish horribly.  It seemed that luck was on the Old Guard's side when five skeletons attacked the New Estalians from the rear.  But alas many brave warriors died in the fight.  Captain de Guzman, Champion of the Gods was shot by the justly hated Julio.  The Red Warlock (who apparently is not dead enough) scored a deep wound on Diego Rivera,which caused that worthy to retire. Fat Edric was killed by the Tilean.  Enrico, who had been erroneously reported killed earlier, was captured by El Pistolero.  Daoud Hari fell mortally wounded in the same fight.  Finally Big Belly II the goblin swab was hacked to pieces by Two Swords.

José dos Santos, formerly of the New Estalians, survived the fight with distinction (he made a successful diving charge) and was promoted from the ranks.

The victorious New Estalians lost only two crew.  One was captured by Old Guard to replace the promoted José.

Dead Man's Hand--Post Gen Con Blues

Chris took a vacation to celebrate the death of Captain de Guzman, so John and Jim L and I met this Thursday, Aug. 9th.  The Old Guard were the low warband AND gained +2 underdog bonus from the Undead.  Jim L had a hard time with the sudden reversal of fortunes, but was at least spared the indignity of becoming the highest rated warband.

I managed to roll a Treasure Hunt on the multi-player scenario chart.  There were 5 treasures to fight over.

Ominously, the Old Guard ended up stuck between the Undead and the vengeful Bay Watch (they really need to forgive and forget).

Beardy II and Randi hurry away from the carnage.  Beardy throws a pistol shot over his shoulder as he retreats...  Hits and scores a critical wound on the vampire!  The vampire suffers 2 wounds with no armor save and is suddenly out of action!

Alejandro attacks Little Billy III (who can not climb for anything, but is still a hero.) Alejandro dies.

At some point the event The Pool was rolled.  Critter gained an extra wound.  (But when facing Almah, 4 is not enough...)  Before Critter can be taken out of action, the Bay Watch flee.

The Undead suffered huge reverses now that they must fight in the light of day as the highest warband rather than mine experience in the dark...
They flee the battle with one treasure.  A ghoul dies outright.  Then the Blooddrinker fails to return to ghoulish form and flies off into the jungle (on his second game as a Blooddrinker, lame.)  The Vampire becomes frenzied, which is how he was behaving anyway.  In addition, the Vampire gains +1 Strength.  Joy.

Seriously, Jim L was on fire with his rolls for shooting (as long as Undead were the targets).  If it had been a two player game, the Bay Watch would have 7 wins this campaign.  As it was the mass of Old Guard were able to cut through Beardy II and his friends for only two warriors out of action.  Beardy II recovered. Marvin 'Old Baldy' Snart was captured by the Old Guard.  The Bay Watch hang on to 2 treasures I think.  (The game got a bit confusing for me as Jim L wanted to play it out after routing to see if he could have won...Hard to do with his dice. He was right to run when he did. But at the end neither of us were sure when the henchman with a treasure went out of action. Keeping track of things is hell when you are old.)

The Old Guard face two higher rated warbands with only 5 heroes and win.  It helped that the Bay Watch broke the Undead (although Almah and the Man with No Name helped.)  It also helped that the Bay Watch shooters advanced rather than backed up to Nimble the Estalians to death. Julio suffers horrible scars, but Alejandro Escovedo is captured by the Bay Watchers.  'Old Baldy' gladly quit the Bay Watch to replace Alejandro.  Emilio Estevez II becomes a hero!  Woot!  The Old Guard gain +2 treasures and find a human mercenary corpse carrying a brace of dueling pistols.

A lot of your games seem to play out as massacres for one side or other... That's no bad thing. Great reports as ever!

Yeah.  Once warbands need 4 or 5 out to even think of routing, why not stay?

Dead Man's Hand--The Secrets of Beujuntae
The New Estalians, Old Guard and Bay Watch struggle with a trapped daemon...

John could not make game night, so the campaign goes on (we might have a final battle one of these nights, or not.)

I was the low warband again! It is so nice to get underdog bonus finally (though parting with Al Bobo, Juan and Captain de Guzman was a steep price.)  This time Chris had a rating +200 above my 345, so I splurged on a Warlock for +16 rating and STILL got +4 underdog bonus.

The plot of the scenario:  at the end of the Great Chaos Incursion the Slann have trapped a Greater Daemon of Chaos.  They confine the daemon in a physical tomb within the City of Ghosts.  However the daemon has lured adventurers to his tomb to unlock the wards placed to bind it.  If the adventurers bring a ward into the tomb, they will eventually free the daemon.

The New Estalians set up nearest two wards (those glowy green thingys).  Then a pit opens up under the Long Gunner and the Tilean (who fail their initiative rolls and plummet 5" into the catacombs!)
Pyrates of the Karribean VI.a--Dead Man's Hand - Page 7 47a8d637b3127cce98549f4e071a00000010100AbOXDRkzbMmWA

Here one of the New Estalian henchmen claims a ward.

The Bay Watch shooters (Captain Flashy, Critter, Floppy III and Baldy III) charge a Carnivorous Plant.  Flashy is wounded

The Beujuntae possesses a Bay Watch crewman.  The possessed runs afoul of a Carnivorous Plant...

The New Estalians out flank the Bay Watch.

Meanwhile, back at the gate, the handgunners by the ward are attacked by Hadj and the Old Guard's new warlock...

The Bay Watch Possessed threw off the daemon.  The strain of possession sent him out of action.  Then Esmeralda II was possessed!  She also blunders into a Carnivorous Plant.

The end is near.  Both the New Estalians and the Old Guard are continually drawn to these wards (which they never succeed in moving because of shooting, events and other unexpected occurrences. The handgunners moved to the ward on turn one, but squabble over who will carry the ward, are shot and then are bedeviled by Screaming Walls)

Two Swords (who I learned is names Ravena) claims the handgunners' ward.

Ravena must carry her ward to the tomb.  As she nears the tomb she is mugged by Francisco, Hadj and Emillo. AND 'Old Baldy' is possessed by the Beajuntae, so he must charge Ravenna, too.  Ravenna falls out of action.

The New Estalians roll a ten on a break test and flee!

The Old Guard collect +4 underdog bonus and win another game!  Its good to be the low warband.

The Bay Watch lose Mr Wolfgang IV.  He is the only fatality (except for Alejandro who escapes into the jungle when the Bay Watch rout).  The Bay Watch recovered no wards, but they did defeat three Carnivorous Plants.

The New Estalians were prone to events (which was welcome).  The first took the Long Gunner and the Tilean out of the game.  The Long Gunner managed to escape the Catacombs, but the building he climbed out the catacombs in suffered Screaming Walls (and was over grown with trees which made it hard to shoot from!)  Also Chris sent El Capitan to destroy the Bay Watch, which meant she was far away when the Old Guard charged.  Slim and Ravenna survived the battle.  A gunner with a blunderbuss is captured by the Old Guard!  
The New Estalians manage to recover one ward.

The Old Guard win the game and the experience lottery!  José dos Santos fully recovers being screamed out of action by The Walls, but Caliban the Mate suffers an old battle wound in a fall.  The Old Guard collect three wards (which can be sold as 'counts as' wyrdstone).

I just registered to give praise to this thread. The tales of daring do, coupled with the pictures of amazing boards, are just spectacular! Well done. I don't know why, but when it is pirates it just seems like the brooding darkness of mordheim disappears and all the stabbing and shooting is such good fun. Very Happy I SO want to do pirate warbands now, but there are just so many projects waiting to be finished...

Dead Man's Hand--Talk Like a Pirate Day

It has taken a while to make another report. No time to visit a PC. This battle happened August 23rd, I tried to post about it the next weekend but accidentally deleted the post. Then I tried again to post on the 19th, but the computer froze...

The Temple of Doom!
I think it was the Undead who discovered the entrance to the tomb...

All the warbands struggled through the dark corridors

The Old Guard deal with cages and snares (Ali bin Ali is not being attacked he is being rescued from a snare)

The New Estalians are haunted by guardian spirits (and fall into pits)

The Bay Watch had three warriors fall into this pit...

Then Ali went and set off another snare...

The Undead reach the treasure chamber first

Followed closely by Almah and the hired Warlock, Fibjibbet

The New Estalians snipe at the vampire and set off more traps...

The Ogre attacks Almah!

As three Undead heroes are trapped in a pit...

Some of the New Estalians are trapped by a wall of spirits

But a falling cage trap blocks the entrance!

The vampire flees with the Golden Elephant as the Bay Watch stumble closer

The Bay Watch have a guardian spirit to deal with too

As Almah crawls to safety, Francisco and the Warlock defeat the Ogre!

But ghouls attack!

And the New Estalians snipe!

The Bay Watch enters

The Vampire gets farther and farther away...

The New Estalians must do without the Red Warlock and the Witch

And a gunner flees

But the rest of the warband attacks! The Raven and the Pistolier attack the Man With No Name. El Capitan attacks Almah
Pyrates of the Karribean VI.a--Dead Man's Hand - Page 7 47a8d602b3127cce98549f18e42d00000010100AbOXDRkzbMmWA

The cage is destroyed (but Enrico has fallen in a pit)
Pyrates of the Karribean VI.a--Dead Man's Hand - Page 7 47a8d602b3127cce98549f06e43300000010100AbOXDRkzbMmWA

Hadji fires his blunderbuss into the Raven, et al. The cavalry have arrived!

And then Hadji is charged by an angry Raven...

Four Old Guard are trapped by snares. Esmiralda II goes about freeing them...

Enrico springs a guardian spirit trap by attempting to climb out the pit.

The Bay Watch mop up the remaining Undead minions

While the Ghoul Hero sends Francisco out of action
Pyrates of the Karribean VI.a--Dead Man's Hand - Page 7 47a8d602b3127cce98549f0f650a00000010100AbOXDRkzbMmWA

An overview of the final moments

Some Bay Watchers didn't get out of the corridor
Pyrates of the Karribean VI.a--Dead Man's Hand - Page 7 47a8d602b3127cce98549f0ce43900000010100AbOXDRkzbMmWA

And then the Vampire took the Golden Elephant off the board edge! The game ends with another Undead victory!

It has been a very long time since the battle. I believe that the Man With No Name was killed in the fight. Francisco survived against the odds! The Undead lost two ghouls and stole a couple of treasures. In addition the Golden Elephant turned out to be the artifact the Spider Staff. The Bay Watch grabbed several treasures (looks like 3 in the photos). Someone may have died, but I don't remember.
The New Estalians grabbed 3 treasures with 3 heroes. It is possible some henchman died, but it been almost a month scratch

That was quite a complex game to try & remember over the course of a few busy weeks. The photos were WONDERFUL; i.e., GREAT looking scenery & miniatures. OUTSTANDING STUFF! thumbsup

That's quite the evocative setup, there! And good looking gangs to boot. Good stuff!
Thanks for the welcome, gents. I'll get around to introducing myself properly. Been busy with the Big Toof I and II... Wink
