Wizard Battle! - Oldhammer Comics

Hi All,

My boy wanted to play some Warhammer and I had an idea I've wanted to try out for awhile and needed to remind myself how 3rd Edition Magic worked. So we decided to take two wizards each. The idea was a wizard and his apprentice. So one 15th Level (to get some 2nd level spells) and one 5th level.

We rolled for magic points and spells as per the tables in Warhammer Armies.

Here's the report. ( I went with a rotoscope filter as the pictures weren't all that great.)





As you can see we also had to make due with the figures we had to hand. A chaos warrior subbed for the Undead Champion. Primed Zombies the place of Skeletons and a Giant Rat in the place of the Demonic Steed. I know I made the Ghost of HG Wells cry, but I've put off my son too many times in the past and I don't want to kill his enthusiasm for the game.

In the end it's all about fun.

Thanks for looking.

    1. Thanks Dai, it was fun. As usual I rolled total crap when I need it. We'll be doing a follow up soon.

    1. Thanks Ray, over the years we've talked about playing a lot, but have rarely done it at home. It was nice. Helps me remember the rules and teaches him the game.

  3. I liked the report but the pictures were a bit grainy if one is to be critical I'm not sure whey they are like that.

    1. Hi Phil, I thinks that's a fair observation. The pictures were of dubious quality to begin with and I think that Comic life always blurs them a tad. The rotoscope filter I used also alters the image quite a bit and may introduce some blur or noise. Honestly I purposely didn't spend a lot of time tweaking these photos. I just wanted to relay our game in a timely fashion.

  4. Nothing like mages hurling spells at each other. How old is your son?

    1. Hi Anthony, he's 12 and a half. It's fun seeing the game through his eyes, he's picking up on a lot of things that i haven't really noticed or thought about.
