I'm a bit late, but I am very sorry for your loss.

Dead Man's Hand--Talk Like a Pirate Day

It has taken a while to make another report.  No time to visit a PC. This battle happened August 23rd, I tried to post about it the next weekend but accidentally deleted the post.  Then I tried again to post on the 19th, but the computer froze... And so far today this is my second attempt on this forum...Arrgh!

The Temple of Doom!
I think it was the Undead who discovered the entrance to the tomb...

All the warbands struggled through the dark corridors

The Old Guard deal with cages and snares (Ali bin Ali is not being attacked he is being rescued from a snare)

The New Estalians are haunted by guardian spirits (and fall into pits)

The Bay Watch had three warriors fall into this pit...

Then Ali went and set off another snare...

The Undead reach the treasure chamber first

Followed closely by Almah and the hired Warlock, Fibjibbet

The New Estalians snipe at the vampire and set off more traps...

The Ogre attacks Almah!

As three Undead heroes are trapped in a pit...

Some of the New Estalians are trapped by a wall of spirits

Fibjibbet he Warlock saves Almah

But a falling cage trap blocks the entrance!

The vampire flees with the Golden Elephant as the Bay Watch stumble closer

The Bay Watch have a guardian spirit to deal with too

As Almah crawls to safety, Francisco and the Warlock defeat the Ogre!

But ghouls attack!

And the New Estalians snipe!

The Warlock rushes to Francisco's aide

The Undead grab treasure

The Bay Watch enters

The Vampire gets farther and farther away...

The New Estalians must do without the Red Warlock and the Witch

And a gunner flees

But the rest of the warband attacks!  The Raven and the Pistolier attack the Man With No Name.  El Capitan attacks Almah

A gunner versus the Undead's hired Assassin

While Slim attacks the Bay Watch

The cage is destroyed (but Enrico has fallen in a pit)

Hadji fires his blunderbuss into the Raven, et al.  The cavalry have arrived!

And then Hadji is charged by an angry Raven...

Four Old Guard are trapped by snares.  Esmiralda II goes about freeing them...

Enrico springs a guardian spirit trap by attempting to climb out the pit.

The Bay Watch mop up the remaining Undead minions

While the Ghoul Hero sends Francisco out of action

An overview of the final moments

Some Bay Watchers didn't get out of the corridor

And then the Vampire took the Golden Elephant off the board edge!  The game ends with another Undead victory!

It has been a very long time since the battle.  I believe that the Man With No Name was killed in the fight.  Francisco survived against the odds! The Undead lost two ghouls and stole a couple of treasures.  In addition the Golden Elephant turned out to be the artifact the Spider Staff.  The Bay Watch grabbed several treasures (looks like 3 in the photos).  Someone may have died, but I don't remember.
The New Estalians grabbed 3 treasures with 3 heroes.  It is possible some henchman died, but it been almost a month

Thanks! Iím looking forward to getting the new rule book and codexes. I just have the 3 books that include all the armies when they first changed but if I can turn things around Iíll reward myself with the new material.

I believe I have now built all the named characters from the City Watch and so as far as Iím concerned I now consider my task for this month completed.

The attached photo shows what is now ready for my painting table and my plan is to finish them all by the end of the year. You may recognise a few of them as Iíve had to change the original plan of where they would fit on the Display Base/Movement Trays so they had to be rebased and now need a paint touch-up.

My friendís 40K Marines also need to be fitted in to this timescale somehow.
