Tor Megiddo



This weekend a hearty bunch of hobbyists met up in Helsinki to take part in Tor Megiddo - a completely insane multiplayer Inquisimunda game (mixed up with Gorkamorka rules for all the crazy vehicles and riders) set on the desolate industrial planet Tor Megiddo.

It was a total blast - literally, as the game ended with one of my frenzied Nurgle cultists firing an appropriated battle cannon at the main prometheum stack, which of course caused it to detonate and take half the battlefield along with it. Good clean fun.

Ana of Gardens of Hecate fame, has posted a great write-up on the game so head over there to read it - others will certainly follow.  Gardens of Hecate - Tor Megiddo

I´ll just post some of my own pictures here and would also like to take the opportunity to thank Alexander Winberg for arranging this spectacle. Now feast your eyes on all the amazing miniatures that turned Tor Megiddo´s orange sands red!

  1. Thanks for all the pictures! It certainly looks like it was a fantastic time. How did your mutant/Borg do?

    1. Most them got snuffed, but like I said Crazy Eyes managed to blow up half the board in the final turn. As my plagueborgs represented chaos, I consider that a success!

  2. Nice! And good job with that game-ending explosion, I didn't expect it. Did you plan it from earlier or was it a spur-of-the-moment thing?

    1. More a spur of the moment thing more than anything. But I had the idea at the back of my mind a few turns.

  3. Wow, I can't even wrap my head around all the conversions and terrain building that went into that. Amazing! Must have been incredible to play . . .

    1. It was rather overwhelming. Everyone really brought their A-game when creating the models for this endeavour...

    1. Inquisimunda rules with Gorkamorka rules tacked on for the vehicles. Unforeseen situations are solved with the classic "you succeed on a 4+"

  7. Oh my frigging gosh! This is totally RAD!
    Awesome conversions and terrain! Will you post some more photos of those beautiful miniatures, please? :)
    Man, you are a constant source of inspiration. Emperor bless you!

    1. They're not all my miniatures if that wasn't made clear. The other participants like Ana and Wilhelm have posted their own recaps. Look in the Blogs of Note section!
