Chaos and Mayhem in Warhammer!

Triumph & Treachery @ Nopat & Taktiikka

Triumph and Treachery.jpg

Warhammer has really made a come back at our Nopat & Taktiikka Club. In our Summer Cabin trip we played a 20 000p. mega battle with 8th edition and Oldhammer gaming (mainly 6th edition) has been quite active indeed... then I digged up this old tome and asked if some of the fellas would like to give this oddity a go. They wanted and since July there's been about 5 sessions and one of my mates even bought the set from eBay. In this blogpost you'll see pictures from this summers Retro-Warhammer games!

First go with Sharp Practise 2.

Revisiting Retreat from Moscow 1812

My club mate Jaakko ( @jamopower in IG) has been slowly building a napoleonic Russian force and we’ve been pondering which of the many available, skirmish level, rulesets we would use.
We’ve been playing napoleonics with Black Powder, Muskets & Tomahawks (were waiting for the napoleonic supplement to be released for the 2nd edition), Rebels and Patriots, but as Jaakko wanted to play with a smaller number of miniatures we decided to give Sharp Practise a go. Eventually Jaakko painted 30 more miniatures for the game, so the argument for a smaller amount of minis sort of flew out of the window, but who cares!

August ASOIAF-tournament part 1/2

 Our community is growing!

I / we have organized many a tournaments at our wargaming club Nopat ja Taktiikka in Helsinki. I believe this was the first time we had eight players. This is a two part tournament with 2 X three games. Second part will be played in two week's time (23rd of August 2020). At least 5 of today's participants will play at the second part too - there we have 10 players enrolled.

Nightswatch reinforcements I worked on while preparing for the tournament (a bit WIP)

Unboxing Wargames Atlantic's WW1 Germans

Turning Germans into Chinese

I recently started to build a WW2 Chinese army to Bolt Action and in the beginning of the war several Chinese units were equipped with German gear and using puttees on their legs. So these minis would be a good starting point for kitbashing and conversions. Let's see what the box contains and what is the quality of these minis...

Visiting Military Museums this summer

Traveling in Finland

As Covid-19 cancelled our trip to Menorca, we've traveled more in our beautiful country this summer. This has given me the opportunity to visit some military related museums (mostly while rest of the family has been doing something else).
