Somehow I never played this game during it's heyday in the mid-2000's. But, I've met plenty of gamers who have fond memories for it and wish to pick it up again. So, a by a strange twist of fate, I bought a High Elf army at MillenniumCon 13. I was solely interested in using the set of 3 Great Eagles as a stand of flyers for HotT, but the previous owner was willing to part with the whole army for a song!
Interest has grown among the locals and I hope to see a Warmaster tournament in the near future. Ted and Chip from LSHM were willing to teach me and help boost my army up to 1500 points. Ted was willing to give me a quick shake down of the rules. We had a quick little battle between Chip's High Elves vs. Ted's unpainted Empire troops. Sure enough, I learned a great new rules set (well, new to me anyway)
As word spread around the community, more gamers were dusting off their old armies. LSHM setup a grand two on two battle at Dragon's Lair. The four armies represented were Chaos and Goblins (Mike & Dave) vs. Dark Elves and Undead (Mark R. & Blake). I didn't participate, but I was there to photograph the game. These were some of the finest looking armies I've ever seen.
