The Sword of Light and Good - An Oldhammer Battle Report

Hi All,

I finally have some good WiFi and a little time, so I finished putting this battle report together. This was a learning game with lots of house rules and flavor added by the GM. I hope it inspires you to dust of your minis and use them in anger.

(As always, right click on the image and open in a new tab/window to see it in its full bigness.)














Thanks for looking.

  1. Awesome report Sean! Can't wait to fight that wonderful green skin army!!! I'm really inspired by the layout you chose. It's given me some comic ideas. ;)

    1. Thanks Airborne, October is going to be tough, There's going to be so many games going on, I want to play them all. I call the new format House of Hengist style. Two big photos with text in the middle. I decided to add rules commentary in blue dialogue boxes. I feel like it works ok. Just need to work on the photography. I should have turned up the ISO more so that I could close down the aperture and get a better depth of field. I'll bring my light meter next time.

    1. Thanks Millsy. It was tough going for the orcs. I took a ton of casualties and the elves pretty much had their way. The Mimic chewed up the Golden Flower unit and my Army Standard Bearer put them over the edge. The fluke of the Trolls arriving at just the right time, causing fear in the general's unit and then Lissanne rolling double 6's on her rally attempt conspired to save my bacon.

    1. Thanks Gordon. It seemed pretty bleak at the time, but I stuck it out and somehow pulled out the win.

    1. Glad to hear it Dai. I'm trying to go with the larger picture style since these are all digital and page count is immaterial.

  7. Incredible work! I love how your painting style, terrain and the comic book format all sort of harmonize together. Brilliant.

    1. Thanks Matthew. The elves were painted by Lissanne Lake and are a sight to behold in person. I don't think the photos really show how gorgeous they are.

  8. I love it! Not only is it awesome to see all the old models but the comic style is amazing. Poor elves and their sword ;-)

    1. Thanks Joe, glad you like the comic. I've been doing them for awhile now and have finally started playing with what I call the "House of Hengist" style. The idea is to use two large image panels per page and add some background, rules and even modelling tips to the things. Right now I'm still concentrating on getting the story out. Once I get my workflow better established I can expand to the background material.
