RoC Battle

Hi all ! I just had my second game of RoC my my buddy Thomas Riley from the forums.
We both just picked some models to be in our warband , and played WSYIWYG style. We also tried out 4th ed card magic as we felt 3rd ed magic was a bit too over powered. But the 4th ed magic was made for army battles and was pretty overpowered aswell.

We played a scenario where the objective was to persuade a chaos wizard to follow you to your deployment zone with a leadership test. Also if you lost a combat round with him you would have to roll an additional leadership test for him not to flee.

Here goes some pictures !

The classic warhammer poses , me on the left and Riley to the right.

 Rileys warband , lead by the musket armed chaos sorcerer Hazmat Mutilatore.

 Our objective the mighty Tzeentch wizard Zapp Peckerhead.
Painted by the very talented Sonny Bundgaard.

Deployment from my side. We have some awesome terrain in our club called Rogue Trader . I will have to take some shots of the other gaming tables for you one day , we even have an entire mos eisley table!

 In my first round i used a spell called something i dont remember , but it basicly teleported my sorcerer and his unit 18'' in the direction i wanted. And what a suprise i landed right beside Peckerhead.

Advancing forces , notice rileys skaven sneaking around the ruin.
The big close combat clash , my cultists and beastmen clashing  Rileys thugs .
You can see a hint of his chaos dwarfs closing in on the side.

Meanwhile my forces were getting slaugthered by the hands of chaos dwarfs and thugs.
My Sorcerer Obediah Ruffhouse engaged in a a bloody fight against the flanking skaven. The 3 chaos slann were eventually killed along with the the 4 skaven and my Sorcerer managed to flee into the dusk with Zapp Peckerhead , landing him the victory.

It was an awesome game, especially when you implement a scenario. I didnt like the 4th ed magic we used some pretty OP magic bolts which killed of a good group of beastmen and chaos dwarfs, so didnt feel like making it a part of the battle report since it felt like cheap kills..

 I hope you enjoy , and I am sorry for any bad english and spelling errors.


  1. It was really fun , even tho 3rd ed rules are a bit tedious. We are considering to make a campaign where we cross skulldred and RoC.

  2. Hang on just a cottin pick'n minute!!!! I demand to see some close up pics of Rileys' chaos thugs!!!! They look great.

    That Tzeentch wizard Zapp Peckerhead, I've had him for years, painted him a couple of times, but never liked the colour scheme. Sonny Bundgaard has done him justice....really looks the bomb!

    Always nice to see ROC being played :)


    1. Hi there , i think he has pictures of his thugs on his blog :)

    2. Yeah, right after I left my impertinent question I went to visit his blog, but he hasn't posted any close ups. I asked him to anyway.


    3. I'm writing up a short reply to this battle report including the few pictures I took - which includes some closer shots of the thugs. I'll see if I can't manage to sort them up in a line sometime and snap some better photos of the lot! And thanks for the compliment the one :)


  3. What a wonderful picture you manage to take of me :) In my eager attempt to replicate the ever so epic Ansell-stance I pulled of the rather squirmish Pete Tayler-ish close-eyes-behind-the-glasses look hahaha true oldhammer I guees though
