Frostgrave – Meet the Headtakers: Tannhauser

Name: Tannhauser
Soldier Type: War Hound

image

Not even painted...

Miniature: a ‘beast’ from an old Warhammer Fantasy (citadel/marauder era?) Dark Elf Beastmaster blister.
Backstory: The village where Tannhauser was born was one of many destroyed by monstrous creatures loosed by the thaw. Left with no home, he wandered the wilds for a couple years before running into Beatrice Hammerhand. At the time, she was working her stretch hunting beasts, while Jaeger was doing dungeon work. Tannhauser sensed a kindred spirit, and the two quickly grew inseparable.
When Beatrice, JaegerĀ  and Skrixx Aeon ‘k were hired on to the Headtakers under She (Who Will Not be Named), Tannhauser came with them.
Tannhauser died during his very first confrontation as a member of the Headtakers, cut down by a dagger blow from Patrick the thief, a member of Colin the Blue’s warband. Beatrice Hammerhand has sworn vengeance.
I do not envy Patrick…

Welcome to the Wayback! Gorkamorka Season One

As promised, here is my unfinished Gorkamorka post…

In case you’re unaware of this, the Wayback is the name I’ve given to the local shop’s series of Specialist Games campaigns. A very friendly long time miniatures gamer runs the campaigns for about six sessions each, painting up appropriate miniatures as prizing. The Mordheim winner went home with a Necromunda gang, and I took home a Gorkamorka mob for my performance in Necromunda. Well, it’s Gorkamorka time, and there’s a dwarf warband on the line for use in the upcoming Mordheim campaign.

Our first Gorkamorka session was a couple weeks ago, and my first experience with the system was a blast. I played two games. The first was a basic ‘ grab the scrap’ sorta deal.

And that’s as far as I got. It was a lot of fun, I won the dwarf warband for Mordheim, and here are all the pictures I can find…

I was up against the Vipas often, as my work schedule meant I was usually only there for the second half of the evening...
