You got it!

Apologies for some specific names on english, specially about magic spells. Don't know it in english!

...

The sun had risen few hours before, but dark supernatural clouds dimmed its light, like a foreshadowing of what had to come. In the walls, the Kislevites moved nervously, as for the Chaos army had not stopped bombing the city walls all night and they were beginning to give way. Suddenly, a ray of light penetrated the ominous clouds and the Kislevites saw a halo of hope on the horizon. The army of Magnus the Pious arrived at Kislev just as the troops of Asavar Kul breached the wall. No Imperial soldier had ever seen an army as coarse and fearsome as the one on the other side of the plain. Creatures of immense size and strange beasts stained by Chaos bathed the horizon. But among those ranks there were not only monsters, but hordes of Chaos Marauders, Warriors of Chaos, Beastmen chariots and leaders of immense power.

But Magnus also had his resources. His hometown, Nuln, had provided the rest of the provinces with numerous war machines. And Steam Tanks, no less than seven of these old machines that were created by Leonardo da Miragliano few decades before, were still in operation and could become a great help. Also, the city of Marienburg hired mercenaries from Tilea and a team of engineers who tried to reproduce a Steam Tank on the shell of a small ship.

Even so, the best reinforcements did not come from the south, but from the east, beyond the sea. A host of High Elves commanded by Teclis met Magnus to help the humans. Especially in relation to magic, a practice that was forbidden at that time in some places.

Unfortunately, not many days before, many of his cavalry troops had gone to Praag and Magnus was not sure if they would arrive in time for the battle. They were led by the Ar-Ulrik Kriestov and supported by Yrtle, one of the Asur wizards.

As a skillful strategist, Asavar Kul quickly reorganized his army to face the new menace. However, the troops of Khorne, under the command of Arbaal the Undefeated, were too eager to penetrate the city and many did not even noticed the arrival of the human reinforcements. Kul placed his best troops in the center: hordes of Warriors and Knights of Chaos, two War Mammoths, two Chaos Dragons and a powerful Emperor Dragon. He placed himself among them to make sure his orders were carried out with scrupulous discipline.

The cool breeze of the Kislevite steppes seemed to stop at that moment under the weight of the silence: a silence that is impossible to describe. Suddenly, a strong gust of wind cut the air and, afterwards, the battle that would decide the fate of the Old World began.


...

The only thing that is even more amazing, than the sheer scale of the battle and the amount of miniatures, is that everything is painted to such a high standard! A joy to look at. Thanks for sharing with us!  :::cheers:::

Thank you all mates!
On sunday I will upload the english version of the second turn.

Absolutely awesome @Rogers Kul, did you guys do army lists or just put everything on the table and go for it?

No no, there was an army list for each army and we had to respect the percentage restrictions (heroes, core, special...). Lot of work on that too!

Not sure what words to use in describing this. I read this over the last couple of days with the site open the whole time. Night reads, breaks and lunch at work and finally after dinner tonight. Magnificent and what an end fight. Congrats on this masterpiece.

All hose images reminded me of this wonderful battle scene: Battle of the Ice Teutonic knights do look like chaos knights here, don't they?

Oh man, that is simply stunning! You should really write to GW about that project. Maybe they could put some info about that on their website or in a issue of White Dwarf! :blush:

Mates, your words really touched my heart. More than this. This is what I really was searching for: sharing our warhammer experience with a the world community and get it into the hobby next level.
Thank you all, sincerelly.

And yes, Xath, I wrote to Games Workshop, but seems they are not care obut it. Only AoS exists now and the rest seems shit for them. Only the old guard (Tuomas Pirinen, Gav Thorpe...) kindly gave us their feedback. You, know, now only kids and sales are important...

So now that the report is complete and you the adrenaline has worn of: what are the things you've learned, painting-wise, table-wise, game-wise? what would you do differently if you could do it all again? And, of course, what's next?

Hey, if the old guys acknowledged your work and effort, that is something. I've also shared this with a bunch of modelling hobby groups in Poland. People here are really impressed by your work, just FYI. :::cheers:::

we have nothing but.

maybe reply in your thread in the Elector's forum, this really goes beyond the hobby section here. There are so few large games played, your experiences are really valuable data points for setting up other large games, especially considering how much work goes into it.
