Warmaster High Elves vs.Empire


A mass of Empire infantry push forward.


The Elf Spears are driven back in confusion by the Empire crossbows.

I use a mix of GW, Pendraken and vintage fantasy miniatures from the 80's in these armies.

The ruined temple on the hill was an objective in this battle and gave an occupying wizard a +1 bonus when casting spells.
This was an enjoyable game which resulted in an Empire victory.

Tiger,tiger.

The Tiger is a mean looking tank.



I wargame World War Two in 6mm, 20mm, 28mm and 1/35th scale.
This is my 1/35th Tiger 1, made by Italeri I bought it for about £10 a few years ago.
This is one of my favourite models so I thought I'd show it off.
