Default "Krigslive" a warhammer War-LARP scenario

I am not sure where to post this, but on the other side I would call this warhammer art/inspiration:

To qoute on of the men behind it all, here is what he writes on a blog on calimacil.com:

"Some month ago there was a blog about a Danish larp called Krigslive.

It have been my plan to write some more about it for some time and Jenna’s blog about war games finally got me started…


Krigslive V

Krigslive is about soldiers at war in the Warhammer world.*

Everybody sign up with a regiment and fight for one of the two sides.

Some of the special things about Krigslive is that your unit must fight in a close formation and have a banner. The unit can only have one type of weapons and you must not mix units. And on top of this, shields are limited to 90cm x 60cm in size.

This give a fighting style that much different from the usual, at least in Danish terms, fight between (tower)shieldwalls supported with long spears. It becomes more dynamic, and there is more tactic in matching the right types of units against each other.

At this krigslive (the 5th) the setting was a civil war in the Empire. (year 1361IC)

Since almost everybody played professional soldiers (State troops) we ended up with big “blocks” of soldiers marching around in step and when they had to change direction they wheeled just like in “warhammer fantasy battle” (of course, the few useless militia units didn’t know how to do that… much to the frustration of their officers).

We had 450 players and that makes it the largest larp in Denmark within the past few years.
With a pretty good standard in costumes and equipment it looked great and we had some fantastic battles – our post-larp survey so far indicates that each person spent 470 canadian dollars on equipment solely for this larp"

Now that you know alittle about the game, here is a slideshow of pics taken at the last one:


If you want to know more you are more than welcome to contact me or if you want to join for the next War-LARP in line. There is moreover further pics and movies on youtube, even storybased and trailers.
