WoffBoot The Movie II: Woff Harder

Our most recent 8th Ed battle was last November (who says we're not keeping the flame alive?) and so Kraken and I decided to give the old rank n' flank an airing...

We played 1600pt Goblins vs Dwarfs, narrated as tradition dictates by Brother 'Peachy' Toliver Carnehan and Brother Daniel 'Danny' Dravot, former Gunnery Sergeants in the Queen’s own Royal Loyal Light Infantry.

It was a fun battle - and I got to debut my freshly-painted Grom the Paunch!

Camera, Action, Lights!
It's All-Skype Fight Night!

We don't do this enough, both the video reports and the 8th Ed WFB. Despite the reams of rules involved, and the overall rustiness of play (I genuinely could not remember how charging worked), this was a lot of fun.

Our self-imposed rule of 'no proxies' certainly puts a fire under me to get things painted too: Grom himself, the Gigantic Spider, the Spider Riders, the Wolf Riders are all due to get painting posts about them; not to mention to fresh basing on the Dwarves.

When the Dwarfs are ready for a rematch, I'll have to kick on and give them a purely Common Goblin army to face (I'm sure it will be a relief to see the Manglers on the bench).


  1. Really enjoyed that, thanks for sharing.

    1. Cheers, glad you enjoyed it. We should do more of these - they're not much more effort than our written reports.
