It's all gone quiet!
« on: May 15, 2018, 05:43:26 PM »
Hey all!

Sorry I've not posted as often as I used to - moved to a new area and didn't have much in the way of Warmaster to speak of.

HOWEVER - I just tried out a couple of new clubs that were a bit further away than before, in Newcastle in north east England - and met some folks who either have some old armies mothballed somewhere, or who really want to give it a try as a game!

I am going to give someone a trial game tonight and I'm really hoping that seeing the game being played will make someone else want to dig out their models and revive it.

has anyone else managed to get a game, lately?

Four, as a matter of fact. We had a tournament in the east of Sweden last weekend so three of us Westerners went over to whip the locals up to shape. ;)

I play more or less once a month. Manage to form players to WM in the late 2017 and they kept playing.

And i'm happy of it :)

I try to publish a Battle Report each time on our french forum, but i don't know if they are readen...

Ah, battle reports are usually read, but greeted with silence, which is sad!

I sometimes look at the Epic and Warmaster .fr forums using Google Translate and see what's going on, there. =P

I'm interested about a feedback from someone reading a battle report with google transalte. Are they readable ?

@Marell: Google translate is normally good enough to get the gist of everything I read on the French forums.  Occasionally a bit of slang throws me off, though.

Here's a pic a friend took of me teaching Warmaster for the first time in ages!

I had three new guys wanting to play these time. One bought two armies after that.

If you want my opinion, people want to play again a medieval game, but they don't like AoS. So they turn on WM easily if they have the occasion.

Well, one fellow I made friends with asked if I had spares, thankfully I had 10 blisters of High Elves.  Not a full army but enough to be going on with.  I sold him those and now another chap is asking about Empire models!

Must admit I don't play Warmaster anymore. Me and my friends play our own fantasy 'home brew' rules using our Warmaster collections but have re-based everything onto 40mm by 40mm square bases. I still drop in here from time to time to see 'what's happening' in the community though.

Best wishes
