our first SBH game

We played our first SBH game yesterday, I must say I had a blast of a time. since it was our first game, we choose to play a classic bash game. there was a chest with gold hidden in the ruins, the warband who would leave the table with it would be the winner... who would be the lucky victor?
there where 3 warbands: adventurers, ratman and orcs.
The Ratman scouts where first to arrive, leaving the rest of the clan waiting at a distance, the adventurers send in their warriors first, the archers taking up strategic positions (or so they thought)

Soon after the ratman charged the adventurers, their scouts had found the gold and they where determined to bring the chest back to their lair.

In the distance you could hear the roar of the orcs. In true orc fashion they where fighting first among each other, so it took some time before they really got moving (or did they had some bad activation dice?)

In the mean time the fighting in the ruins got fiercer. The ratman managing the first kill of the day, the Human Barbarian, not as though as he looked...

The Orcs finally arrived. looking inside the ruins eager to join the fight.

In the meantime the adventurers managed to kill some ratman, including the leader, so the ratman had to make some moral checks. Seeing their leader killed most of them fled the battlefield. The group adventurers had survived the sudden attack, but at a price. Their little Halfling friend ley dead amongst the ruins.

But the break would be a short one, with a load roar the orcs charged through the ruins, in real orc tradition attacking everyone and everything in reach.

At the top of the ruin a ratman scout and a orc warrior where fighting each other for the possession of the chest.

While on the ground the remaining ratman joined the battle again. They had found the gold first, it would be theirs!

In the meantime the adventurers took up some defensive positions, should they join the mayhem or just watch the beasts how they fought each other? But the orcs had other plans with them. instead of helping their brethren fighting the ratman, the remaining orcs charged the adventurers.

The battlefield was total chaos, the orcs fighting everyone, determined to soak the ruins with blood and feast on the dead afterwards. The chief could have the gold if he wanted it. They just wanted to have some fun.

Unfortunately it was already 2 o'clock in the night, and having a appointment early in the morning we ended the game here. I must say I had a really fun evening. although the rulebook says a game can be played in half an hour, we played from 21.30 till 02.00. It was of course our first game, so a lot of time was spend reading the book for clarification of the rules. Looking forward for our next game!!

first post

hi there,

First post here. wargames rambling wil be a blog about my wargaming in 28mm scale. Although my wargaming is mostly done in 20mm, as you can see on my other blog, plastic general, 28mm is starting to appeal to me again. I will be using this scale mostly for skirmish games, as I have still a fond memory of Mordheim, way back in the days we did Warhammer. At the moment I'm reading the rulebook Song of Blades and Heroes...Let's see where it ends...
in the meantime working on some terrainboards, pictures of miniatures following soon
