I used to write battle reports for Portent back in the day.

Is there a need for this today here or is this place pretty covered by them somewhere else?

quality battle reports are in high demand and right now we are going through a bit of a dry spell:cries:

Indeed, spiekdog does a good battlereport but alas, they are few and far between (No offence intended).

I miss battle reports.

Well I have to get my webspace turned back on as I used to get a ton of traffic to my old battle report site.

I'm writing a new video game for Warhammer Fantasy Roleplaying and there is a battle campaign element in it ... I may post the battle reports for that.

Empire vs Chaos.

I also have Tomb Kings, High Elves, and Skaven.

What type of reports are you looking for? I do narrative with diagrams or flash video.

I agree battle reports are almost always great fun to read! Interesting also, especially if they are done with the 7th ed rules, to see them in action without having to play (cant right now :P)

Cool. I'm putting together a three part ladder campaign and will have some reports up soon. With photos and diagrams of course.

This sounds great. As the ones in WD are getting poorer by the month, this will atleast give a chance to read a proper battle report.

I wish my old site was still up... I'd give you all a link.

I used to do a couple a month. I had huge hits on that page.

I remember, I used to check it at least once or twice a month hoping for a new one.

I hope you get a site up and upload all the old ones, it has been a while since I have read them all.

Good to have you back. :D

Nice, as the battle reports in WD are somewhat lacking.
On a note, how do you do your video reports?

I'm looking into a new server today. If I get one I will upload my old reports as there are a ton of people who were never on portent and never saw my stuff.

My video reports I use Flash.

Well the quality isnt finished yet and the pictures are still crawling through a 56K modem but their is a battle report going up on;

http://www.warseer.com/forums/showthread.php?t=48756

The battle is 27,000 points of dwarfs fighting 18 armies accross a 20 foot board and was put on for Battle for Skull Pass. The Dwarf army is 25,000 (we stuck in the stores couple of boxes of BfSP dwarfs as was release day and 2000 lol) points of mine and Dodgy Ed dwarf army and we agreed to take on all comers and every model they could bring. It was a great laugh and the photos do not in the slightest show how cool it was. So check it out

Yes a sensible battle report with a balanced armies and not astromomical points. Just like old white dwarf days. And 7th edition would be nice if you pointed out the where the rule changes occur.

Battle reports without photos are rubbish, in my opinion. So - if anyone does a report, can they post images with it?

Usurped! I have been usurped!

As the Death Master said, I have done a few Picture Battle reports in the past but alas I don't play as much as I would like so I don't get the chance to report more.

But I would love to see someone else do picture or even better, video reports!

Please post battle reports, and for the love of god, just make the majority of them an example of an average game. I am so sick of White Dwarf posting weird themed battles and games of an outrageous amount of points. I read battle reports in part to see how other gamers use there respective armies. A game of 1000pts vs 3000pts, with all kinds of crazy rules, tells me nothing about that gamers playing style with there army. Please, a simple pitched 2000pts- 2250pts report with pictures or flash, for most battles.

New Battle reports would be appreciated, thanks for taking the time to post the old ones!

Yes do realise linked battle was abit over the top and not the stuff we normally play be made for a fun one off! Now has pictures on teh battle report linked earlier in the thread if anyone wants to take another look. If anyone in Notts fancies a game down Warhammer World some time which can be nicely pictured up for a Warseer battle report i'm up for it as my 2000 point Dwarfs are about to start preping for the GT
