Plaguebearers of Nurgle - GF

Finished up a set of 9 Plaguebearers of Nurgle that I picked up from Phoenix Games a few weeks back. According to Neil, a customer purchased them, painted one and didn't like it so they returned the remaining 9. Hopefully we'll get to use them in an upcoming Dark Heresy RPG. I think they'd make decent Deep Ones too, if we ever need for some H.P. Lovecraft adventures.

LotR LCG - Hunt for Gollum

Three of us got together last night for some Lord of the Rings - LCG from Fantasy Flight Games. The quest - Hunt for Gollum.

The elusive creature known as Gollum is hiding somewhere in the Anduin Valley. It is up to you to find him and discover what dark designs lay in wait for him...

As the first Adventure Pack in the Shadows of Mirkwood cycle, The Hunt for Gollum sets the stage for the coming quests by putting players in search of the titular creature, whose capture is the overall goal in Shadows of Mirkwood. For this first quest, players are tasked with uncovering the clues in the form of the Signs of Gollum Objective cards, which are shuffled into the Encounter deck.

We failed to find Gollum. Twice. Time to tweak the character decks. Where's Aragorn when you need him?!?

LotR:SBG Blackwold's Roost Scenario

Our first game of 2016 was a LotR:SBG scenario. We hope to write up the rules for you guys to check out here soon. Great fun!

Our three heroes (Hastings, Novik and Salladian) are sent to investigate the Blackwold's Roost, looking for any information on the bandits' activity around Archet. There are 6 different camp sites throughout the board where the Good player can search for clues. The bandit champion is also carrying notes about the Blackwold's upcoming attack on the town.

We played the scenario twice. The first time the Good player managed to discover the bandits' plan right away, on the 2nd turn I believe. Incredibly quick. We tweaked the rules a bit and tried a second game. This time, Evil won and even managed to defeat Salladian and Hastings! I believe this was the first time we've lost a Good hero in a scenario!
