Colossi of Rhossum Secundus -III- Offertory

The sun would rise twice that dawn one sunrise for life one sunrise for death. It did not matter much to those that died but to those that lived it would be a constant haunting remainder that they remained when others had fallen. Sniffing and moaning the trollefather tried in vain to control his throne… Continue reading Colossi of Rhossum Secundus -III- Offertory

Colossi of Rhossum Secundus -II- Absolution

The sun rose and the sand began to heat for during the long cold night even the sand froze upon this dying earth. It was a new dawn and it began with bloodshed and horror and the dying. The first of the colossi spied the Polytechnical Tower crossing the bridge and the sleek hunter saw… Continue reading Colossi of Rhossum Secundus -II- Absolution

Outgard – Memoriam defunctorum

To play a game you need some miniatures of course. Outgard gave us a chance to explore depressing full on medievalism, with hints of strange dysfunctional technology. The bedrock of 40k in many ways, just taken to the extreme. This is the stuff we all delight in. Helge Dahl created the court of King Raavenkæld.… Continue reading Outgard – Memoriam defunctorum

Outgard – Mortui sunt

They march towards Tuonela, the third gate is close In sorrow and in shame. Fealty bound they still serve The Judgement. The crow eaters. The Hunters. Pitiful men who cling to dead ideals King's men, the tyrannical attempt at order. They move in on the small hamlet to add it to their Kingdom. The Hound… Continue reading Outgard – Mortui sunt

Outgard – Ubi sunt

The village of Toivoton, where we set the stage for this sad affair. The buildings of Toivoton are, for a few blessed moments, bathed in light. A false dawn approaches and the dwellers in the dark disappear. In death there is life and in memory there is revelation. They gather confused to celebrate dagmál, to… Continue reading Outgard – Ubi sunt

Colossi of Rhossum Secundus -I- the Wake

For a time there was man and there was the earth and there was the machine and for a time that troika would remain in symmetry. But man is greedy and so man pulled away from the earth. The sand dies alone. The machine rises. Polytechnical Tower walked through the sand as commanded by the… Continue reading Colossi of Rhossum Secundus -I- the Wake

Codex Rhossum Secundus

The game has come and gone and only silence remains upon the dust fields of Rhossum Secundus. A report will follow with more pictures, but for now I'm happy to share the mini Codex Rossum Secundus we used for the game. We also used these nifty Datacards that Alexander Lunde created to help us keep track of the… Continue reading Codex Rhossum Secundus

Tor Megiddo – Blanchitsu

The Tor Megiddo saga began in January 2017 and now we are finally coming to the last chapter. It has been one hell of a story. The whole thing began as a somewhat crazy idea, "let's invite friends and strangers to Helsinki for a game of Necromunda, I won't seem like a lunatic at all!"… Continue reading Tor Megiddo – Blanchitsu

Echoes presents: Erik “Nordic” Blomqvist

First, thank you Alexander Winberg for inviting me to the blog to talk a bit about my Chaos army/warband. This project started with me, Alexander Winberg, and Johan Egerkrans getting together in 2016 to play a short Path to Glory game using the new (at the time) Age of Sigmar rules. We each picked our… Continue reading Echoes presents: Erik “Nordic” Blomqvist

Colossi of Rhossum Secundus – work continues

Only two months till it's time for the game. I haven't been too productive so far. My crew is still only halfway done and my colossus also need a lot of work. However I am not worried, yet. I just need to focus and get it done. Soria Moria is, like most colossi, an ancient… Continue reading Colossi of Rhossum Secundus – work continues
