Padre's Collected Works!

Edit 1: May 2015 - Updated with much new stuff and Edited for broken links
Edit 2: Summer 2018 - Now photobucket has repaired all these threads, I will re-edit to get this up to date again asap.

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):

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)

Attack on Terme Castle (Ogres versus Bretonnian defenders)

And the subsequent attack on Ravola (Same forces as above)

Capture the Duchess (Vampire Counts vs Campaign Tilean List)

The Little Waagh (Greenskins versus Tilean Campaign List

Bad Timing, Bad Intelligence and Bad Behaviour (Greenskins versus Greenskins, campaign lists)

The Viadazan Crusade (2670 pts Tilean Campaign list vs Vampire Counts)

What to do with Caution on a Still Day (Condottiere list versus Empire)

(More to come asap ...)

“All That Glistens” - several Bat Reps with linking story, ongoing, intermittent; involves pirates (Empire/DoW), Arabs (Empire/DoW), Zombie Pirates (old WD list), Pygmies (Lizardmen) & Dwarfs, so far -

The interconnecting story pieces for this campaign are scattered and I can't link to a single, full thread. I obviously did not know what I was doing back then. But most of the stuff is gathered together here:


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) …

Dwarfs vs. Vampire Counts, ‘The Fall of Bragovo Keep’



A Photo session in which I collected all my ‘good guys’ together ...

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:::

Oh my. Perhaps I should go and read them all again, I know I want to.

Nice idea to list all your reports, Padre!

O boy, I know what I'm reading on vacation, now...

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:::
