Padre's Collected Works!
« on: May 27, 2011, 09:09:22 PM »
Updated with much new stuff and Edited for broken links in May 2015

An (almost) full collection of my photo story battle reports and all the stuff that links them together.

If it's the bat reps you're most interested in, I’ve labelled the links (when I can) with army types and size so that you can have a peek at those that interest you. Nearly everything is vaguely in reverse chronological order of writing, though in an attempt to be helpful, the grouped campaign reports are usually listed in their correct game-world chronological order, and a link to the full, interconnecting campaign story is provided where possible.

Note: Photobucket can fail to show a picture or two at times BUT they are all there, so if the pics seem to be missing, just refresh the page. I can assure you they are all present and correct - I never alter their order and so all the links should remain sound. If all have disappeared that means my monthly allowance needs to renew. So ... do come back later!

My Current Campaign, Tilea mid 24th century (Imperial Calendar):

The whole story (so far):
http://warhammer-empire.com/theforum/index.php?topic=46787.0

The Individual Battles
(Due to the ongoing nature of this campaign exact lists and points details of forces are not often included - it would be unfair 'intelligence' for the players. And many of the battle reports are more story-like and less technical for similar reasons, although they are all accounts of actual tabletop games.)

Assault on Astiano (Modified T&G Condottieri List vs outnumbering Empire)

And the one that started it all, the story of a battle with posed pictures set up afterwards (and a LOT more time consuming than taking pictures along the way) …

You, my friend, have creativity sloshing out of your ears. You should wipe your floor daily and wring out the rag over a bucket and sell little creativity-filled buckets; you could make a small fortune.

Excellent work!  :::cheers:::

Nice idea to list all your reports, Padre!

Wow.  Well worth having done this! :icon_biggrin:

I remember the first one and how impressed I was with that.  Now I'm impressed that they've all been compiled.  I'll definitely revist some of these.

Thanks for setting this up! :::cheers:::

That's good to hear, Sikander. If any stand out as better than the rest, do tell me which. I might learn what works best.

My favourite has to have been the treachery and greed campaign, really enjoyed your Condlumar character!

That was the first time I grasped the full extent of the story and illustration possibilities for 'this sort of thing', and I loved it. I employed all the usual bat reps and little scenes, with some lighting tricks etc, and luckily the campaign allowed Condlumar's story to have a definite beginning, middle and end. I tried to do the same with the A6 campaign, adding photos of real objects, and smoke effects, and scanned handwritten stuff, etc. All that Glistens was the first time I tried to do 'this sort of thing' but not as part of an online campaign. Then when I added players to the mix, becoming the GM, it all came together with this my current campaign.

You should, Inarticulate, enjoy my current effort as it is set in Tilea too (well, my version of it), and, like Condlumar, the character of Father Biagino is going through a similarly tortuous story, if not even more 'difficult' and exciting.
