About War but not WAR

Posted: December 3, 2010 in Warhammer

First of all I’m having a break from WAR. I heard some rumors about Skaven expansion released for Warhammer, but after Lotro becoming free to play game I’m waiting for war for free – even with item shop. Meanwhile I would like to present very nice game I’m playing right now the Navy Field. Navy Field is one of the free online war games and is based upon actual WWII naval fights. Producers have developed graphically engineered models of standard WWII weapons, ships, aircraft, and munitions from Germany, the United States, U.K, and Japan to use in during the fights. Players are asked to manufacture ships, include armament combinations, and position sailors to execute specific objectives. There are six tiers of carrier and battleship. Each has boosted durability and displacement.

Like in other online war games, we can play against other players. Battles in Navy Field consist of up to 64 players, max 7 Battleships on every side, and a number of smaller vessels and aircraft carriers. This makes for an intense and special fighting experience which forces you to work with your teammates, as every ship has advantages and disadvantages that can be exploited and used.

(Navy Field gameplay)

Navy Field is free to play, but you are able to pay for certain advantages over non-paying gamers such as Premium ships, elite crew, boosted experience gain, and a number of different things. Like in other free online war games, you can easily pick side of the conflict from Australia, to England. You can play in over 100 different ships, outfitting them how you select. In combat, you earn experience points, credits, and points. Use credits and points to upgrade and purchase new ships, and make better your sailors. Light, medium, or heavy shells. Light do less damage, but longer range.

NATIONS

Kriegsmarine – The navy of the German Third Reich. Their ships have the best range but deal low damage and have fewer guns than those of competing navies. The Kreigsmarine vessels are also familiar for their extreme speed.

Royal Navy – The fleet of the British Empire. Ships that belong to the RN have nice armor, the best supportive sailors, and the most difficult hitting guns. Their reload time is poor and their torpedoes have lower range than other navies.

Imperial Japanese Navy – The navy of the Japanese Empire. Japanese vessels are swift and rely on powerful, impressive ranged torpedoes and large explosive shells. Their guns have a high ‘hang time’ which means gamers must anticipate where their target will be by the time the shells hit. This makes some IJN ships hard for beginners to use like in other online war games.

United States Navy – The all-around fleet. US ships have great fighter pilots, aircraft carriers, and light cruisers. Their early game battleships are considered weak but by later game these ships are very.

There is also Australia and Englad but I’m too lazy to write more about them….hah

Tanoth and PoxNora

Posted: March 21, 2009 in Warhammer

Hello friends! Well, I have break and I must leave Warhammer Online for some time. Of course I will play as usual, few hours a day, but in other games. I discovered two very cool and free games on the web.
First one is simple, but fun RPG, called Tanoth. In this game we can fight with other players, work, visit dungeons, buy cool equipment and improve our character avatar – simple, but awesome :-)
check out this video.

If you would like to register, here is link to Tanoth.

Second game is PoxNora and is strategic, online card game (or something like that). PoxNora was originally launched via Java Web Start through a browser and can be played on Microsoft Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux. The game is free to play with awesome “Sample Battlegroups” and we can purchase additional game pieces, called “runes”, and build our own successful strategy. The game currently includes more than 500 runes.

PoxNora’s world is split among eight factions. Each rune belongs to a particular faction.

Factions Element Theme

Forglar Swamp Water/Poison/Psychic
Forsaken Wastes Death
Ironfist Stronghold Metal/Earth
K’thir Forest Forest
Savage Tundra Ice
Shattered Peaks Stone
Sundered Lands Fire/Acid/Sand
The Underdepths Fire/Dark Powers

Ok enough talk, check out this video…

You can visit official PoxNora Website right here. What do you think about these games? :-)

Cheers

Chaos mutations

Welcome friends on my blog! On picture above we have some typical – Chaos mutants (in WAR they will be called “Marauders”). In Warhammer world – every one that serve dark gods have special mutation – of course not for free – must be noticed by his deeds. Mutation like another pair of hands or giant scorpion sting or giant – crab pincers are favorite mutations of Slaanesh. Khorne is making most powerfull servants – Daemon Prince and his mutation are anyone that adding his warrior strength, frenzy and make him more deadly in hand – to – hand combat.

Younger Chaos God – Tzeentch is marking his followers great magical powers, blessing of this god is always connected to magic. His most powerful minion is Engrim Van Horstman, he is strongest and most powerful chaos warlock in Old World. In Warhammer Fantasy Battle he is raiding huge, Chaos Dragon.

Nurgle is granting, immortal existence ( in exceptional cases), his followers are easy to recognize – their flesh is rotting, and they are spreading diseases. His mutations are close to anything making more tougher and sometimes his followers are immune to pain.

See you again!

PS these mutants are marked and are servents of Tzeentc – cunning god ;-)

Warhammer Fantasy Battle

(This is Goblin, brave hero…about 4 feets – height)

Ready for more about Warhammer? I would like to present game of Fantasy Battles (formerly Warhammer Fantasy Battle and often abbreviated to Warhammer, WFB or WHFB). This is one of the most popular tabletop war game created by British company, Games Workshop. Player can play small-scale skirmish games involving 10 – 20 models a side, up to big, amazing battles that pit armies of hundreds of models against each other! Rules that govern how the models move, fight and how powerful weapons they’ve are contained in the Warhammer rulebook – bible of the game. We can choose and collect awesome armies of models that are described in separate Warhammer army books (yeah you need to pay for them too…). A huge range of models is also available from Citadel Miniatures, in metal and in plastic. Metal ones are expensive, and harder to paint; plastic are cheap, but you can easily damage them – if you step on one, it’s time for say goodbye…

Warhammer Fantasy Battle has been designed with regiments of fantasy miniatures. It uses stock fantasy races such as humans (The Empire – similar to Germany, Kislev – Russia, Bretonnia – France…), Dwarfs, Undead, Orcs and Goblins, Elves (High Elves, Dark Elves, Wood Elves), Vampires, Lizardmen, Skaven and the daemonic forces of Chaos (yeah! My favorite side!!!). Chaos is divided into 4 faction (Chaos God), there is Khorne, Tzeentch, Nurgle and Slaanesh. Each race has its own strengths and flaws; Wood Elves (or Greenpeace berserkers), have the most powerful archers in the game but have poor overall defense and Bretonnia have the strongest cavalry but very poor infantry. Chaos has very powerful units, but to deploy them, you must pay a lot of points (more powerful units, more points to deploy). Empire has very powerful artillery and it’s nicely balanced, but all of core unites are …well average…

Warhammer “armies” of 20 mm – 200 mm tall heroic miniatures, are clashing and only one player can achive ultimate victory! Well I must admit, that I played with my friends 6- player battles and it was one of the best experience I ever had (if we are talking about games of course!). Game can be little bit complicated, painting all army can be hard and you need some skill to make all your warriors, pretty and hadsome, but it’s really good game. Good fantasy tabletop wargame.

About Chaos Gods…

The Chaos Gods are deities worshiped and feared by various groups and that is what makes these groups followers of Chaos. Most of followers are living at Chaos Wastes, devastated, unholy land full of corruption and ancient evil magic; basically it’s looking like earth after Armageddon. In this idea there is evidently a big influence from the British fantasy writer Michael Moorcock. Many various Chaos Gods were named in the various early miniature catalogues released by Citadel in the early eighties, so Games Workshop never clearly explained what the fictional pantheon looked like – it’s a mess, so let’s focus about Khorne, Tzeentch, Nurgle and Slaanesh…
