Berserkir Wargamers

Postby Beire » Tue Nov 01, 2016 1:56 pm

Hi all!

I'm part of a close group of friends who enjoy painting and gaming with our collection of miniatures. All of us hail from Leuven, a Belgian town best known for it's university and tasty beer. Lately, we discovered the amazing tabletop game Darklands and are hooked! I decided to make a blog and hope to regulary post painted miniatures and bloody battle reports. Enjoy!

Hello guys!

We hosted a big Saga/Darklands game at the Hamburg Tactica convention. There was a great atmosphere and we met a lot of very cool people. I really like the Tactica concept of keeping the display tables limited and the show small scaled. There were a lot of high quality tables and we enjoyed chatting to the other gamers.

Your wonderful gaming table makes me wonder: What do you guys think of playing Saga with Mierce models? Many of them fit pretty well, did you try that? I think I will

Hello Antoine, we used to play Saga with our Mierce miniatures collection. But most of our models are painted now and we exclusively play Darklands with them. The rules are crunchy but so rewarding. We only want to play the game Darklands with them!

Awesome Models, awesome Table - and the latest battle report is just amazing, so many nice miniatures in action on such a great table - a feast for the eyes (and a feast for the Krokodar ;D).

Thank you very much for sharing those treasures!

In this blogpost I'll be showing you an update on my project 'The Herd'. All models are made by Mierce miniatures. The goal of this project is to build a huge Darklands Fomoraic army, mainly consisting of the fantastic Gabrax and Tarvax models. I love painting and modelling these models, they have so much character!

Image

Here is an overview of the finished models. Many more will (hopefully) follow in the next couple of months!

The Massive Summer Painting competition got me motivated to take some pictures of my monstrous beasts (80mm+). I don't have a Facebook Profile so I cannot enter the competition. But I gladly post my pictures here to inspire other painters!

In our eternal quest to promote the tabletop game Darklands we went to the Crisis 2018 with a table full of Mierce miniatures. We love going to this anual wargaming convention and had a great spot in hall 2 this year next to some fantastic clubs.

This years game featured a big battle in wich the Norse invaders disembarked from their drakkars and started pillaging a small town. The Anglecynn and Jutes counterattacked the Norsemen and bloody combat ensued. Our main goal was to showcase the Mierce miniatures and chat about the game to anyone who was interested.
