Or Vikings vs. Vikings if you prefer :)
After so many publications about Oldhammer we decided to dust off WFB 3rd edition, but we only had Vikings to play with.

I like those movement trays… more like mobs, less like rows of cans at the market.
The better games of WFB 3rd I'd had all involved a bit of scenario/story… rather than straight up head-bash.

Venusboy3, do you know if there were some scenarios for WFB 3rd edition?

I'm not sure if there were any commercial ones like there were for 2nd edition… but how hard could it be to use McDeath or Lichemaster with 3rd? (IF you could find a copy).
I'm guessing there might have been some in White Dwarf of the time…
There's one in the works for the upcoming Oldhammer 'zine too.

Mostly, though, we've just made up our own, with objectives and follow-through games… we also ran a fantasy version of Rogue Trader's 'Battle At The Farm' last Winter.

I meant others apart from those, sorry. Actually I own Orc's Drift and my buddy McDeath and Lichemaster.
Where can I read about the Oldhammer'zine?
Cheers,

I don't know of any outside of that… we only started playing WFB last summer so I'm late to the table.

Here is a bit about the 'zine in progress link
