Trouble in Teufeltal sessions 8, 9 and 10 - White Wolves, Waaghs and Vampires

As I never got around to translating and posting the last sessions, I've decided to post the entire wrap-up of my first Warhammer Fantasy 4th campaign in one go.

Session 8 - The White Wolf Lodge
After the party was saved by ladies they thought where in distress, they moved on to the White Wolf Lodge. Fortunately one of the escape tunnels from Lady DeBlanc's School for Ladies led almost straight to the border between Bretonnia and the Empire and the White Wolf lodge building sitting atop it. Just as fortunate was the meeting with their comrade Drett. After shaking off his Estelian stomach flue he had decided to randomly search the party at this location.

Skaven warlord on brood horror and some classic Plague Monks

I should've known the Gutter Runners where just a vanguard heralding more Skaven to come. That and the new Battle Tome. It restores the Skaven to their own backstabbing and conniving version of unity. I love it. I haven't had time to get a game in with my Skaven, but just seeing all the clans back together is a treat in itself. Over the course of this weekend I focused on finishing two units that had been getting some on and off again attention over the past few weeks. The first unit is a Skaven warlord on Brood Horror by Forge World and the second is a group of twenty classic Plague Monks. Lets start off with the Warlord, I should say Clawlord on Brood Horror (although Forge World hasn't updated the warscroll just yet).

Now there is someone I wouldn't want to invite over for dinner.

Skaven Gutter Runners and a new photo backdrop

This month I crowded my paint station with Eldar with a few sneaky Skaven among them, just for fun. The arrival of the new Skaven Battle Tome, natural Skaven sneakiness and my inability to stay focused for extended periods of time, has caused a few changes. The number of Skaven on my paint station seem to be rapidly multiplying. I also had a lot of fun with some side projects, but more on that later. Lets start of with five freshly painted Skaven Gutter Runners.

Quick quick, sneak sneak kill the...eeek! Big target run! Aaargh! </projected future battlefield actions>

Freshly painted Swooping Hawks ready to fail (again)

Last week I finished repainting my Eldar Swooping Hawks. I'm not sure why I keep bringing these guys to battle as even Ork t-shirts tend to deflect their masterfully aimed shots. But on the bright side they aren't as much of an eyesore in the display cabinet anymore, so there's that.

Here we are, please stop killing us!

A Farseer, a Skaven and a lot of Eldar

After finishing the Mighty Fortress I looked at the other projects on my paint station and decided it was time to add a few. I've been mulling over my instantly crossed out New Year's resolution (don't buy new stuff until the old stuff is finished). Obviously as a plastic and lead addict I can never keep that resolution, but after the fun I had with the bingo card last year I wanted to give my hobby life some guiding direction. So for this year my focus with (almost) every project will be to reduce my pile of overtly ambitious purchases.  I think finally building and painting a the thirty year old Mighty Fortress was a good start tot that.

Did I break that generator? Woopsie...
