Saturday night fights. Path to glory; Rocks and roll


For me one of the most prominent aspects of the fantasy trope is floating rocks. I don't know what it is but I just love them!

With that in mind I HAD to have a scenario with flying rocks!!

Saturday night fights. Path to Glory; Geheimnisnacht.


On the night of Geheimnisnacht, the night of mysteries when Morrslieb hangs full in the sky any warbands traveling the night must run the gauntlet to survive the night!

Diminishing the grey shame. Another mixed bag of painting.

Nothing shameful about this piece of grey!

Another mixed bag of random miniatures after the break . . . . .

Saturday Night fights: Path to glory. Tome of Magic


So the run up to the final week of term has been brutal.

It has seen me try to collate the course work of my year 11 SEN kids into some kind of narrative a moderator can actually understand.

As a consequence the gaming table looked like this until about 30 minutes before Shaggy and Lee turned up to play . . . . . . .

Saturday night fights: Path to Glory. Who's the daddy?


In the second game of the evening the three Aspiring Champions declare a truce in order to return to the Northlands through Imperial territory.

Their warbands wait at a short distance ready to intervene if there is treachery!

In the middle of the discussions an Orc maiden appears, with a strangely familiar looking baby in tow . . . . and a cuckolded (and very miffed)  Orc Warboss!

And of course he has brought his body guard with him!

Saturday night fights: Path to Glory, Desecration of Sigmar!


The 'Path to Glory' (or damnation) continued for Shaggy, Lee and I this weekend during our  . . . . .



Game one would see the three Aspiring Champions raiding an Imperial settlement while under the control of a more powerful Chaos Lord.

In the pillaging after breaching the walls the three Champions come across a Chapel of Sigmar being protected by a cadre of Warrior Priests and their apprentices.


Each Warrior Priest is worth 2 'infamy' IF slain by an Aspiring Champion and if there is only one warband left standing at the end they get 2 D3 infamy for burning the Chapel down at the end of 8 turns.

Will the truce forged between the Warbands during the raid last?

Reaper Orc Maiden and other odds and sods


So here is the Warrior Monks all finished up for Saturday and the Chapel they will be defending.

In a silly mood this week I also finished up this . . . .

Another mixed bag of painting. Diminishing the grey shame


No 'Path to Glory' this week due to my volunteering to staff the Year 11 prom this Saturday last (carnage!).

But I did get to hit the brushes over the weekend.

Saturday night fights: Path to Glory. Pitch battle and break through


After game one and the influx of 'infamy' I decided to go recruiting and rolled up another 5 warhounds!

This saw me take a 20 strong warband into game two of the night.


With Shaggy lined up across the board I decide to use the speed of my warband to form a strong left flank and try to boil through the isolated Nurglings before the rest of Shaggy's warband could turn up in support.

Saturday night fights; Path to Glory. Defend the stones


Game two of Saturday night saw me rolling the lowest so having to defend a sacred circle in the centre of the boards from the sacrilegious Nurgle and Slannesh (especially Slannesh 😈)

Saturday night fights; Path to Glory


In order to have a break from Shadespire we decided to have a short 'Path to Glory' Campaign I had devised with a mash up of several rule sets (mostly 8th Edition WHF) and random post game rolls.

Saturday Night Fights; Shadespire


After the break last week I threw up the bat signal for last Saturday.

Shaggy and Lee answered the call to arms.

Painting tally for the year so far. A real mixed bag.


So somehow this year I have managed to paint / sell on over 90 miniatures.

Now at least a quarter of this is due to me giving Lano my Warmachine stuff as I think I have finally kicked that dirtiest of habits. But there has also been some painting.

Mordheim board.


With the house to myself for a bit Sunday morning and finally getting my 28mm stuff sorted I decided to lay out my Mordheim board.

Mordheim XX. Grab the mage!


With the conclusion of the 'Breakthrough' scenario and Bill and Mike 2.0 finishing up we laid out the board for game 2.

This would be a Battle Royale with all 4 warbands taking to the field!

Mordheim XX. Breakthrough


The 14th of April saw the four Warbands once again converge to contest the streets of Mordheim.

My first game would see me take on Nigel and his undead in a 'Breakthrough' scenario.

Shadespire, Saturday night fights


With our Academy Easter break starting a week after everyone else I literally crawled over the finishing line at work on Friday.

I threw up the Bat signal Saturday to see if anyone fancied a Shadespire Throwdown.

It turned out quite a few people did!!

Still needing to shake off the fug of work my Wife and I headed out for a jaunt on Sunday.

We ended up at the Wallace collection in Central London.


With only an hour left before closing we headed straight for the Armour on display

School Oracy day


So once again it is school 'Oracy' day.

The idea is we use communication centred learning . . . . . .

Birthday surprise!


Got a lovely surprise Sunday (and a great reminder of just how special Mrs Riot is) when I walked into the conservatory from a big breakfast at the pub to find my wife had arranged a secret Shadespire Tournament at my house!!!!!

Mordheim XX. Venturing back into the cursed city


Had the absolute pleasure of playing the first two games in the Mordheim campaign I and several other lunatics are playing through this year.

With this being the 20th anniversary of the original release of the game it only seemed appropriate.

Weekend Shadespire battle reports


Work had been an absolute bastard last week so I threw up the Bat signal Friday night to see if anyone fancied a game of little soldiers.

Thankfully Lee answered the call to arms.

Riotville LIVE 2019. Round 1. Ogres Vs Night Goblins

Can't lie I was really glad he did as his army looked incredible.

Riotville LIVE 2019. The photo dump

I will try to forge this in to some kind of narrative through the week.
