I went for a pretty standard deployment with most of my units in the centre of the board supported by my Tiranoc Chariots (chariot base with Silver Helm is a Chariot). Opening game saw little action except for a few magic spells flying around. Casted Pit of Shades 2D6 version on his Sauruses but it scattered to only kill 2. Cannot believe the Slann actually dodged the spell - AGAIN! Initiative 2 and he rolled a 2.
Salamanders are very powerful in this edition allowing him to take out half my unit of spears. A full half of them. Chariot and Great Eagle saw off one unit of Salamanders and another was destroyed by my other chariot. However by then they had little effect in the game.
By the time his main units engaged my army, I had very little to counter YX. Strong hard to shift core of Lizard blocks pushed my units back. Victory went to the Lizards. I must find a strong counter attack.
On another note, we will be having a Fantasy game this Friday, 5th November (Deepavali) starting from 11AM. If you live in Singapore, you will likely have my number. SMS me and I will send you my address.
