Thank you for saying, Hannibal.

The actual story that goes with the last bunch of pictures (which reveals something about the captain's famous unicorn) can be found on the Oldhammer Forum at http://forum.oldhammer.org.uk/viewtopic.php?p=70885#p70885

While the whole campaign story (almost up to date - it lags a bit behind the forum) is at https://bigsmallworlds.com/

Thank you for the links in your latest post! After reading about the negotiations with the goblins, I was very curious to learn more about the campaign itself.

By the way, is that an Airfix La Haye Sainte kit in the background of one of the pictures...?

It is the Airfix model - behind Lector Bernado in one pic, and behind a ratto uomo spy in another. I never throw stuff out and have some pretty ancient stuff in my collection. Often stuff has been re-modeled and repainted, sometimes several times. I am toying with the idea of painting my grey stone walls into a sandstone colour, all the better for Tilea!

As the corpses burned in Viadaza, there was trouble in the army camp outside the walls, with the soldiers of Pavona and the outcasts from Campogrotta trying to kill the Ogres among the army, while the arch-lector of Morr's foreign mercenaries were ordered to stop them ...





















Interesting times in the campaign from a coupla years ago.

At the risk of repeating myself, this thread just continues and continues even more to deliver. Outstanding photography and sense of narrative world building. Much respect.

Thanking you for your kind words Rick W.

Back to some older (pre-hiding-of-bases) campaign pictures now with some images of the undead forces in and near Viadaza back when they possessed the city:

Patrolling the realm ...


Upon the walls ...


Inside the city ...

They demanded a fair trial, but the executioner was already sharpening his blade.

That vignette with the clerics has a lot of atmosphere, love it  :-*

Wonderful, immersive story-telling.  I love how you have adapted so many different ranges of miniatures to each represent what you need to tell your tale, and made a coherent whole out of them.
