War is Here!: Battle for Karak Kadar Warhammer Fantasy Apocalypse Free Event on June 2nd

He is ready! Will you? Prove it, bring your strongest Soldiers to the battle!
Death Fears ME! and Central Oregon Wargaming are going to hold their first ever Warhammer Fantasy Apocalypse game at D's Hobbies.  This is the game to watch or participate in if you are enthusiastic about miniature wargaming.  COW! Members are gathering and building terrain specifically for this event.  The organizers for this event are Isaiah and Carl, and there are really getting this game together.  Please thank them when you see them!

Here is a bit of storyline Carl has going for "Battle of Karak Kadar!"
Karak Kadar, an ancient and powerful stronghold of the dwarves. Built inside a mountain itself, as the dwarves have often done in ages past. Its entrance was a mighty hall at the foot of the mountain, called the 'Anvil', gates and walls of enormous proportions on either side. There those walls have stood for ages, long in years even for the race of dwarves.
Yet a storm is coming, that even these stubborn walls may not weather. An army of chaos and destruction, swift and brutal, has swept down along the World's Edge mountains; from the East of Kislev, to the haunted reaches of Sylvania. The dwarves, ever being the stout allies of men, have been marching against the horde since its first steps near the mountains. They slowed the advance of the army, whilst the men of the Empire gathered. Although they slowed the swarm, they far from stopped it. Even when the armies of the Empire came, the forces of destruction were not done.....

Warhammer Fantasy Apocalypse Event: Insight For The Coming Battle...

If you live, you'll live to just fight again.
From Carl, our scribe, to provide our generals insight into the battle in the perceivable future.

War, gruesome and bloody has swept through the east of the old world.

The Tsarina of Kislev had been receiving reports of small chaos war bands moving throughout Northern and Eastern Kislev. She sent an emissary to the Empire, warning of their presence, yet it was too late.

These bands of warriors from the far north were no scattered war bands. It was a much larger force, moving in small groups to avoid detection. In a tide of blood, they swept through the villages and towns between the mountains and Kislev.

Foul and corrupted beasts came from the forests, adding their braying prayers to the dark gods with those of the North men. In the valleys at the feet of the mountains, the Dark fey guarded a foul tower of sorcery, sticking from the earth like a foul black thorn.

The Dwarves, the greatest and oldest allies of men, came to the aid of beleaguered Kislev. Yet for all the strength and resilience, they could not drive out the forces of chaos arrayed against them. The Warriors from the North, and their bestial allies drove south along the mountains, slowly beating the Dwarves down. The dark and evil kindred of the fey had sated their taste for blood, and remained in their shadowed valleys, collecting those who were unfortunate enough to still be breathing.
As the hordes drove south, their ranks were once again swelled. Another army of the North men had come, the promise of bloodshed driving them ever onwards towards the battle. Ogres and giants came from the hills to feast on the bodies of men and beast, like carrion birds.

Yet now, a vanguard from an army of the Empire bolstered the ranks of the Dwarves, and fought valiantly. Yet the forces of Chaos still drove south.
As the foul armies of corruption crossed into the Empire, an army of men had assembled to face them. Between the Dwarves, Men, and fighting between the two war bands, the invaders were halted.

Yet they were not done.

The blood-shed had been great, and the powers of their bloody god flowed through them.

"It" called for more. More blood!

Their fowl priests and Shamans brayed and screamed, calling for the army to move to the southeast. Their bloody tide carried them to the foothills of the mountains before. They were heading for Karak Kadar, the destruction of that Dwarven stronghold would be their prize.

This was to be a decisive battle, determining the course of this fast and gruesome war. The High Elves, noble and elegant came to aid the Dwarves and Men. Yet even as the forces of order had their ranks bolstered, so did those of evil and chaos. The vampires, foul creatures and necromancers came from Sylvania, looking to fill their own ranks with corpses, and their veins with fresh blood. And beneath all this, far beneath, there was another sound.

Countless feet scurrying through tunnels.

More reports will be filled as the coming of June 2nd approaches!

BATTLESCAPE! Free Terrain Tutorial Event on May 26th!

Fuel the War Effort!
On May 26th, Isaiah and Carl will be presenting a COW and DFM! Free Event featuring how to make affordable great looking terrain. This event is to help bolster the terrain for the Warhammer Fantasy Apocalypse game being held on Jun 2nd at D's Hobbies.

This weekend of May 12th, Carl and Isaiah will be collecting foam materials from local business like Costco, Petsmart, and Petco.  Warning: There might be some dumpster diving!  Also, they are eagerly looking for volunteers.  Check the forums and facebook with updates on material gathering.  Also, they will be gathering flock, paint and glue.  Participants are encouraged to bring supplies as well.

The terrain day, BATTLESCAPE!, will feature Multi-Tier Hills.  Our host will show you which tools to use and how to cut your tiers. How to construct and paint with ease.  The session should be less than 2 hours.  Just a note, waiting for drying between steps.  There might be a blow dryer or hear gun maybe present to speed time.  Also, short 500 to 1000 point games will be played between stages if their is enough interest.  Bring any army, and wargaming system!

Participants will walk away with one complete multi-tier hill or they can "Fuel the War Effort" by donation it to COW to improve the terrain present at D's Hobbies.

Hope to see you there!
