Only death is smiling…

One thing you can rely on our friends Tony & Alec for is a cinematic and exciting battle report.

In this instance, there is a valuable boy missing in the centre of a complex set of ancient (Roman?) ruins. Arthur and his knights (based on the Saxon list) face off against a Draugr warband.

Arthur and the Wendol

Unfortunately, there is a complication – armed civilians, which turn out to be the possessors of the ruins, the cannibal Wendol. If you fall here you will end up with a dinner invitation…

So begins the bloodiest battle report we have yet seen, with a casualty figure that climbs into the dozens – I kid you not.

Against the Trolls!

IHMN Stalwart Gordon Richards has now turned his attention to Blood Eagle.

Over on his blog you can read the terrific tale of how the brothers Magnusson ventured their lives in an attempt to wrest a legendary sword from the clutches of a band of fearsome trolls!!

Harold’s Revenge, a battle report by Lee Brady

“The Viking Raiders emerged from beneath the trees and gazed upon the lands ahead. A church sat defenceless amongst a collection of wooden hovels. Johan had heard about the One God and the wealth hoarded by His priests.”

And so begins a fantastic battle report by Lee Brady. I cannot begin to recommend you read this highly enough!

Uhtred victorious!

Our old friend Tony (aka Shadowking) has sent in the first independent battle reports for Blood Eagle.

In them, his comrade in arms Alec uses the Lord Uhtred Warband to great effect in two bloody encounters. Tony uses Ragnar Lodbrok in the first encounter and a Warband of his own devising in the second.

Shadowking 1

As usual his report is full of photographs of his excellent figure collection. Warning though, some of the pictures are not safe for work due to the terrible violence being meted out by both sides. Many brave men died to bring you this report.

You can find both battle reports here:

We look forwards to featuring many more such reports here, so send them in!
