To Westeros!

Here is a wonderful after action report of a friend of mine over on Lead adventure forum.

Richard AAR

It is a little confrontation between the houses Lannister and Bolton versus Stark , Karstark and Tully.

More here you have to scroll down a bit! Well worth a look many more pictures and a nice report. They are using home-brew rules for this game.

The start of a GoT wildling army

The free folk is the name used to refer to themselves by the people who live in the lands beyond the Wall, still on the continent of Westeros but beyond the northern border of the Seven Kingdoms. The name they employ makes reference to their society, which recognizes no inherent or hereditary political authority, except for leaders whom they choose to follow. The people of the Seven Kingdoms refer to the Free Folk derogatorily as wildlings.

Normally the wildlings are divided into many different rival clans ( up to 90 different ones), but occasionally they unite behind a single over-chieftain known as a King-Beyond-the-Wall, as they were under Mance Rayder. A major difference between the Free Folk and the feudal society of the Seven Kingdoms is that they do not recognize a class of hereditary nobility in their society. They take great pride in their “free” status.

When the Barbarian plastic box set from North Star came out a few weeks back I got myself a few boxes as I think they are a good start to do wildlings or free folk. First is a “unit” (is this a term fit for wildlings?) of 12 Bowmen or hunters . They will hunt for game as well as black watch.

The chief of the unit. A Barbarian body and arms with a frostgrafe soldier head with horns from a barbarian head.

first warrior:

A barbarian body with frost grave soldiers arms and Perry arrows.

second warrior:

A complete barbarian build minus the horns on the helmet which I gave to the chief.

third warrior:

A frost grave soldiers body with barbarian arms and head.

fourth warrior:

A barbarian body arms and head with a Perry bow and quiver on the back.

fifth warrior:

Again a strait build from the Barbarian box with the addition of Perry arrows.

sixth warrior:

A frostgrave Soldier body with barbarian arms and head

seventh warrior:

another strait build

eighth warrior:

and another right out of the barbarian box set.

nineth warrior:

A complete barbarian build.

tenth warrior:

A barbarian head and body with frost grave soldiers arms.

eleventh warrior:

A complete barbarian build with Perry arrows.

So these are the twelve figures in the unit for Dragon Rampant. There is one question though.

The wildlings  in the films have all long sleeves . The barbarian arms have bare upper arms. Have a look here:

Would you sculpt long sleeves on the models? I mean the come from the cold !?

 

 

The fight for the wizard! A GoT AAR

We had a game at the weekend using a part of my GoT figures . The rules we used were Dragon Rampant.  The was to “rescue” a wizard. The wizard moved randomly (when he moved at all ). My son played the Lannisters I played the Starks.

The wizard.

The disposition at the beginning.

The Starks had the first move but lost the roll for movement and so the Lannisters had a go. The wizard refused to move at all.

My son tried to move the Lannisters but failed the to move die roll too. Therefore Robb Stark was activated by me to gallop for the wizard.

Both sides send the heavies in then.

The infantry followed up next

An Overview of the battle at this stage.

Then a Move activation of Robb Stark worked and he reached the wizard.

Now a grand melee commenced around Robb and the wizard!

The battle moved from side to side and both sides lost a lot of warriors, so that at last a battle between Jaime Lannister and Robb Stark decided the fate of the wizard.

And the Lannisters could lead the wizard away

I Hope you liked the battle report . Next will be a full battle with all the Got figures I have .
