After almost a year's worth of army building and bitter fighting, the War for the frozen lands of Norsca have finally come to an end. at the beginning, 7 armies marched upon the homeland of the Norse intent on carving out their own kingdom, and for the most part, some were more successful than others.
At the end of last year, the current state of the war was as you can see above. With the exception of Geordie's Chaos Warband, all others continued to fight among themselves, with alliances being made and broken depending on the needs of the armies at the time. Winter was making itself known and many of the Generals were consolidating their power so as to ensure they survived the ravages of winter. Unfortunately, during the course of Autumn, the rival Chaos Tribe returned to their homes further north, intent on gathering greater strength to avenge the deaths of their tribesmen at the hands of the Brettonians and the Undead hoard.
The Norscan winter is one of the harshest mistresses known to the Old World. Even the Kislevites, the sons of the frozen steppe have a grudging respect for the Norscan people and their ability to endure the crushing winters of their unforgiving land. As the darkness of winter's night receded, and the spring sunshine peered tentatively over the horizon, devastation of untold proportion had been unleashed with no less than 3 players being scoured from the board, leaving only four players left on the board. Starkey's Empire, Nathan's semi-undead, Mark's Ogres and my own Chaos were the only armies that were able to withstand the horrors of winter, and subsequently making it to the end of the Campaign.
With the campaign coming to the end, it was time to see who had managed to secure the most land between the four players. When all was said and done, it came down to a tie between Starkey's Empire and Mark's Ogres, with seven tiles a piece. While neither player had enough tiles to outright win, between the two of them had secured about a third of the entire map. I intend to write a more thorough campaign run-down in the near future, so keep an eye out for that.
Before I go, here's a pic of my current WIP project - yet another Marauder to add to my slowly (very slowly) growing unit.
Catch you all later
