The Battle of The Plain of Crows

With a heavy heart, Lord Asgard ordered his troops into formation...

Mouse, the Wizard Grendir Bagotrix is about a half inch from the forest edge with the unit of crossbow.

All the other units are one and a half inch from one another, and 12 inches from the table edge to the front of the first rank's bases.

Lord Asgard is in with the first unit beside the Speardwarves (which is beside the crossbows). 

Thane Dundeldir (the unarmoured hero with the extra hand weapon) is in with the last unit of hand weapon and shield guys.  (The unit with no standard. (Well, they do have Standards, they just choose not to carry one.))

Hey, everybody, this is the start of an internet/no-border/two table/two country game of Third Edition Warhammer Fantasy Battles, played with Mouse of the great  Tales From the Big Board

Stay tuned...


  1. Dang! Great looking set-up, P.W! I'm starting to see some interesting advantages to this format...this was a really good idea you had...may be the beginnings of great things!

    1. Thanks Mouse. I'm looking forward to our game!

  2. I do like the way you set your scenery up with all the stone and vegetation - very natural looking.

    You just need to paint a sky scape on your walls now ;)

    1. Thank you, Thantsants.

      Yes, yes, you are right! One of these days I'm going to use the inspiration of your great post on Backdrops. For this one I was toying with Hawkwind and Zeppelin gatefolds as background. Just didn't find anything that I was really happy with.

  3. Well, Private Weird - this is just remarkable! One of the best ideas I've seen for a remote game ever! Certainly, by now, given your contributions to our bizarre little world of oldhammer, you should really give yourself a promotion. Private First Class? Corporal Weird? Think about it.

    I wait with baited breath to see how this pans out :)


    1. Gaj! Gaj!! Welcome! It is nice to have you here. You are too kind, but thank you. And I'm afraid poor Private Wierd might call for the rank of 2nd Lt. or something else way beyond his station. Best to leave him as an eternal private.
