A Chance Encounter in the Settled Lands

The Furryfoote Company had set up camp near the ruined tower.

Bright one morning another group of Big Men could be seen approaching the bridge. The call to arms was drummed by 'Taps' Boogletoe.

"Stations everyone!" called Brandiwick. The Elder was quite pleased with how the company turned out. Piggy trotted off to its station near the bridge with Gangy Halftoe. Brandiwick made another note to see about a bow for Gangy. The old short bows were not the right sort of armament for the Furryfoote Scouts. Brandiwick pulled himself up into the wagon bed. "Splendid view," he observed. Stimp spat over the side, but said nothing.

Across the bridge the Big Men were nearing the small black stones the Furryfoote archers had placed on either side of the muddy track. Lads with crossbows took their aim. Bowmen drew back their strings and raised their bows for maximum range.

"Loose!" shouted Brandiwick as he sent a bolt into the mass of Big Men, those dratted Middenheimers if he was not mistaken. The Middenheimer's front rank collapsed in pain and confusion. Those Men still standing broke for the nearest cover, an old dead tree to the northeast of the road. Three or four wounded crawled in their wake.

"Archers loose at will!" ordered Brandiwick. "Stimp take us closer."


Post Battle
The Middenheimers got one or two warriors into combat, but a hero and four or five henchmen were out of action and the hired witch was down. They routed before the bows got into short range. One warrior was killed.

Piggy was knocked down and a lone warrior was facing 8 or 9 angry Middenheimers, but with no archers against them the Furryfootes were unscathed. Again halfing shooting was incredibly effective against living opponents in daylight.

Another slaughtered warband was discovered nearby and the hired thief stole some caltrops...

Edit: Oops forgot. After 3 battles, 2 victories and a strategic withdrawl, the Furryfoote Company has a warband rating of 580. I added two unpainted pigs. pig pig

Darn right!

I am going to miss the Furryfootes when this adventure ends, which it will soonish. It will be awhile until photobucket releases the photos locked there.

Alas I have renewed my account, I have sent nasty notes to Danny Photobuckethed, and I have clicked on every icon in every corner of the page that might be considered 'right', but I have posted no photos since my screen went to 'beta'.

Bummer...I had some trouble switching back due their software Guys, but I finally got back to normal.
As a backup I opened a Google Gallery; it's a bit more work getting my photos posted, but any old port in a storm. Karate

The Hermit
The recluse once known as Gadabout was uneasy. The new cave was damp and drafty. The Warlock felt like a beast trapped in its hole. His body ached were the Ancient One had scarred him. Always he could feel the vibrations of the search for him. She would not let him rest. Gadabout activated his wards and traps and began to pack.

In the distance a Hound gave voice. The hunt was on.


The goblins find the Hermit's cave empty.

Despite horrible losses the Ld 7 goblins refused to rout. The Ld 8 Lahmians broke first. Still the goblin victory comes at the cost of another hero. The Lahmians gain a goblin hero zombie.

Monster Hunt (Sort of)

Hervey could hear Brandiwick's groans from across the camp. It was the Old Wound, the grievious cut from that wild Man's huge axe that the Elder had suffered on that ill favored hunt. Hervey reached for the deck of Tarot cards he had gotten at the last town. (Actually they were Brandiwick's cards, but Hervey had borrowed them since the Elder fell ill.)

Hervey dealt the cards as the priest, Ragnal, had taught him. Just a little diversion, Hervey thought, something to take his mind off poor Brandiwick. Hervey glanced at the cards he had dealt. The young halfling frowned, something was not right. That card, Ragnal had said something about that card. Ragnal had said that was NOT a GOOD card.

Suddenly Hervey was not in his tent. He was crouched beside a rounded hill, there was a cave and one of the piggies. The pig was terrified. Something was in the cave, but it was coming out. Something BAD. It was huge! Bigger than any hound, more terrible than the Ancient. "NOOOOO!" screamed Hervey.


And so I was down two heroes (and four crossbow shots) before the hunt began...

The Black Spiral Dancers attacked from the east.
The Empire of Wolves - Page 5 3way001_zpsfbc15439

The Furryfootes deployed in the west. There is a nice forest between the wagon and the Hochland Hunting Rifle.
The Empire of Wolves - Page 5 3way002_zps96e698d5

Rob recklessly shoe-horned his poor skaven in between the two warbands. He also split his force. Cue omminous musical score.
The Empire of Wolves - Page 5 3way003_zps9b9b1365

The Furryfoote scouts know the Monster is in that abandoned mine. (The model is sitting on top of the hill, but we played the mine as the beast's actual lair.)

Meanwhile on the left...2 Beastmen and a skaven sorcerer would have been in this photo a moment before.
The Empire of Wolves - Page 5 3way009_zps48ee691c

Post Battle
The Skaven fled first with nearly fifty per cent casualties. The Black Spiral took one halfiling scout out of action, then ran as well. Too much table between the chaotic killers and the little bowmen!

Rob lost his Sorcerer and a Night Runner to the murderous Black Spiral. Some other minions of the Great Assassin died as well, but they were of no account.

The T2 Mutant, nkcknamed 'Pincushion', survived against the odds. Something non-lethal happened to the Beast hero. It is possible that at least one Beastman and a Brethern died. Maybe more, maybe less. (Written reports did not get delivered this week.)

It was late so the Furryfootes let the Monster live. No Furryfootes died, so the company captured another Evil Priest. Hates them Evil Priests we does. Twisted Evil

Week 16--The Final Conflict!

Brandiwick was so happy he was nearly in tears. The Elder grasped the calused, gnarled hand his old friend offerred and shook it mightily. "Gadabout!" he cried. "I saw you fall! I am so happy you were not killed!"

"It was nothing," rasped the Warlock. "Merely a deep, poisoned wound done with a cursed Lahmian blade. I was carried away by eagles, nursed for months by the Elves of Grimmerdale, tested by the Sprites of the Old Forest. Through it all the Ancient One pursued me mercilessly. The fiend hounded my every step, but it shall end today!"

"Today?" said Hervey. Hervey had been hoping for a feast, perhaps, a celebration. The young halfling looked at the Warlock and his companions.

"Yes, my good Furryfootes, today!" declared Gadabout. "Today I have gathered the Great Company together again. Ana Gornavich of Kislev, Gimlet of Karak Zorn, Leflet of the Wood Elves and Boris von Mir'd of Stirland."

A haughty human knight bowed slightly to the Furryfootes. He had greeted Ana with some passion, but kept apart from the rest of the group. The haughtier elf had actually left the camp entirely once he spied Gimlet. The two representatives of the Elder races had exchanged strange jests that Hervey for one did not understand. Gadabout had spoken sternly to the dwarf and elf and the elf had strode off toward a wooded hill to the south.

"Yes, where was I?" Gadabout continued. "Soon the Righteous Brothers and the Protectorate will arrive. You must cease your foolish fueding. The Dark Powers come against us! We must stand together!"

"With them murdering Sigmarites?" asked Brentway.

"Yes!" growled Gadabout. "The Dark One hunts, Light must not fight itself!"

"Tell that to them Sigmarites," muttered Guiles,

"Yes, well they will have bigger fish to fry," declared the Warlock. The wind blew through the camp suddenly, filling the air with the sound of hunting hounds...

Post Battle
Good surrendered after three hours of battle. The Righteous had five models left. Four were even standing, The Protectorate had fled with over half of their number left on the field. The Furryfootes had lost all the pigs, Gadabout and Sir Boris, both New Scouts and an Old Scout, AND a couple of warriors.
Naturally Brandiwick was able to locate a handy Faerie Ring and bring everyone back to health.

The Lahmians may have taken 50% or better casualties before the Ancient one removed the wagon from the equation. The goblins claimed they only lost one model.

My pleasure.
Some end of the campaign material:
Harganok wrote:

Black Spiral Dancers - Final Rating of 531
Dead Heroes: only 1 possessed throughout the campaign
Dead Henchmen: Too many to count, though the last half of the campaign I started to get much luckier with not losing henchmen


Some final game heroics:
-First turn, magister lets loose with the Hochland Long Rifle and nails a protectorate of Sigmar crossbowman, taking him out immediately.

-Later on, my wizard got off his Visions of Torment spell off on Myth's Ogre...stunning it automagically and making it easy prey.

Quote :
Both dogs died and Tom the 5th died.
After exploring, paying my 2 hired swords, and buying 2 warhounds, I am down to...
10 members, 1 horse, 2 hired swords, 11gc, rating 451
Totals of 5 heroes and 31 henchmen died during the campaign.

The Lahmians reported the loss of another hero, bringing their total of dead heroes to 5 as well.

The Night Goblins, never great record keepers, claim 7-9 dead heroes (one of whom is alleged to have died 4-5 times). Officially they are tied with the Righteous and Lahmians at 5.

The Furryfoote Company began the final battle with a rating of 653 after spending the bank on Gadabout's Great Company. Sadly none of the champions could be retained after the battle.

What's next?

The Furryfootes have one more adventure to report. The group is moving on to our next campaign which will begin next Thursday.

Thanks for another great campaign. So the bad boys won the campaign. How did you decide who plays the end game?

Thanks!
By whoever showed up. Very Happy

I had planned to have 2 or possibly 3 games with 3 or 4 players maximum but there were lots of conflicts at the last minute so we just started to set up and ended up with 7 players in one game.
