In two weeks the annual Horisont convention is held in Odense, which undoubtedly is the best and most interesting Danish war games convention. Like the two previous years I will be hosting a game of Oldhammer with my ol’ buddy Claus and this year we decided to run the famous “Dolgan Raiders” scenario from the Second Citadel Journal published in 1985. We will be using the 2ed WFB rules and more or less stick to the scenario as presented with a few small tweaks. More about both the miniatures and the scenario later when I’m done basing the minis we will be using.
In this post you can see the table on which we will be playing the scenario. We just finished the whole thing this weekend. Basically the action of the scenario takes place on flat grasslands which of course makes the terrain fairly simple if not even boring, so we decided to spice things up a bit by letting the confrontation take place on a slightly slopping hill and included some small features which breaks the monotony – a burial mound, an ancient stature and the remains of some gigantic thing which once wandered these plains. For those of you who know the scenario, which undoubtedly is most, you will remember the three wagons pulled by lobotomized ogres (sic!) which of course also are going to be a very dominant feature on the battlefield.
