Training New Saga Limes -players

Giving the Raid a go as a BARBARIAN!

One our Barbarian players in the Limes campaign decided, that he doesn't want to play anything
competitive, so we needed to recruit more barbarians - and got two more. As my Brother in Arms for Romans wanted to test drive the Roman faction and I wanted to try the scenario as a barbarian, we set up a "dress rehearsal" game. One of the newly recruited barbarian players, Mikko, joined as my second in command.

Of course I had to paint a few barbarians for the game, here still WIP

Read on to find out, could even I win the dreaded Raid-scenario...

Limes campaign reboot - Raiding Huns!

Huns - fast as wind...

We rebooted the Limes campaign, as the first go ended in two rounds. We agreed on some balancing actions and scaled the campaign from 1 on 1 to 2 on 2. See these amendments at the campaign page.

So off we went and started the campaign new. Barbarians only reported a total of 14 time units for us Romans to use, so few! We expected, that some winter raids would be in order... as my first round opponent Kalle announced he is going to play with the Hun faction, I didn't expect any snow (except here in Finland)... read on to learn how my first encounter with the dreaded Huns and their hellish leader Khan Kattila went...

Armies on Parade: Late Romans


This warband has been in the making since last winter. I got the miniatures from Hamburger Tactica and soon after we made a joint order to Grippingbeast for Aetius & Arthurs supplement.

First go with the Warband (half painted at the time) was in April this year.

Then we started the Limes-campaign and that put the minis to the front in my painting pipeline (that has hundreds of almost finished miniatures). Now I have most of the miniatures ready and it's time to display them - Armies on Parade! The rest of them will certainly get ready as our campaign progresses... I just need to build the stables.

Hit & Run and Rescue -missions

  Finally got to play more games for our Club's Armageddon campaign! In the first game my Brassboys made a hit & run attack to snatch a toaster as a prisoner. You might guess, what was the second mission we played with Marko...

Moonshine Revolution

Finnish-Swedish Military Co-operation continues


Once again two Nopat-club members braved themselves for the hardships and traveled all the way
to the capital of the Swedish Empire. There we joined like-minded generals and had some delightful Musket Mayhem at the American Revolutionary War, or should I say Rebellion!
