Cëloril Le'fer has started posting 7th edition batreps on his blog but with 6th edition army books. Well worth a look:

Update time!

I was intending to attend on 15th October the following event: https://www.facebook.com/events/8707525 ... 188764916/
It is a 6ed (extended to include 7 and 8ed units adapted to 6ed) tournament organized by an association of players close to Barcelona (the 3rd one they organize).

It was my intention to attend and I was really excited about it but unfortunately real life has got in the way a bit, I moved house in September which hasn't helped my painting and it is the last year of my thesis which has not helped my painting either :roll: .
So in the end I had to cancel :( .

So far there are 19 registered attendants and if somebody writes a nice battle report I'll try to post a translation here!

There is another tournament in preparation for 18th November also in Barcelona, I'll see if I can attend that one but it depends a bit on how this month goes.

If I can't make it at least I'll do my best to paint (I have 5 Silver Helms half-done and next are some Reavers) and attend a 6ed tournament next year!

That would be great.

Good luck!

Bravo! It all sounds a bit like my 8th edition progress. After playing a couple of tournaments earlier this year, events in September and October (there’s another one but I can’t play it) fell through, though I’m hopeful for one in November.

Long time no see!

I bring a 6th edition battle report between our traitor evil kin and our forest cousins done by some very crafty Polish gamers :D
I think it is very well written and the story and pictures give it a very White Dwarf (in the good sense) feeling!

Link: http://battle-reports.org/batrep-13/index.php

P.S. I found the link to the battle report in the Middlehammer Facebook group.

That's a great battle report. Love the pictures and the story line woven into the report. A lot of things happening.

It wasn't really a white dwarf battle report though, since there were actually tactics involved and "real" army lists instead of pure fluffy ones.... ;) But apart from that I agree with you.

We both played well overall, but in a very gentlemanly manner and I think this is the way this game - or truly, any wargame - is meant to be played. In such circumstances, the joy of strategizing the most out of every move is much heightened.

This I very much agree with. It's a battle, and the point of it is to crush your opponent and kill as much of his stuff as possible. But it's also a game and meant to be fun. I would much rather lose a fun and gentlemanly battle then win a boring battle where I don't say more then 2 words against my opponent...

While I could not predict the moment when Knights fail their stupidity, I feel I could have moved them in a way that would better prepare them for such a mishap

Hope for the best, assume for the worst, as the saying goes.

I agree that if you have the option to play in a way that gives you some fallback options it's always better to do so. Going all in is something you should only do if either there is no other option or winning is almost certain. Otherwise you should always keep in mind that the dice gods have a funny sense of humour and tend to screw you over at the worst possible time.
