No rest for the wicked and what now for WAB...

Well, now I am off to Fort Lewis, WA for 6 weeks. Will be back in Mid-July. Taking a primered FOW German Army (Panzer Kompanie from Grey Wolf) and supplies with me, so hopefully I will have some new stuff to show when I get back. I am taking a load of "old stuff" pics with me, so the blog shouldn't be silent while I'm gone...

WAB... well there has been a lot of angst flying around about Warhammer Historicals closing.  I wouldn't be surprised if it was folded into the Black Library, nor would I if it was sold to someone else.  For me, I love the Game System, was pretty close to being as good as it could be.  I intend to keep playing WAB, perhaps it will become the Blood Bowl of tabletop games. Or...I will have to try out some other systems to keep rolling dice.  GW sure has moved away from the beer, pretzels, and love of the game boners I remember from 1987... Progress... Sigh...

Adepticon Part II: WAB Singles Rounds 2 and 3

Sorry for the delay, bid ceremony today for ROTC (where I work) and my commencement is tomorrow... whew.

Anyhoo


Here we are all set for round 2.  My caliphates vs. Abe's Teutonics. 
Lots o' really hard knights and infantry.  Scenario was to claim and hold objectives. 

Battle Lines set.  As you can see I easily outnumber Abe's Army 2 to 1.
Matt J2 is looking on...

Adepticon Part II: WAB Singles First Round

The AdepticonWAB singles began "gentlemanly" early on Saturday morning.  After a rousing evening of re-fighting the crusades, I had a pretty good idea of what my Caliphate army can and (as you will see) cannot do. Rich again put on and ran a wonderful event with clever scenarios, quality terrain and tables, and professional time management (well played Rich, well played).

Lots of old friends and new faces this year...

Here is my singles army...
