We had an awesome time this weekend with 4 of the guys gathering to kick-start our excuse to play games and string them up into a story. Again, we are a non-competitive group of gamers and love modelling as much as playing.
The following are pictures taken from the day. There are two battle reports of the two games I had with. Unfortunately the map flags were not fully painted by the time of this game but we have identified each Territory with the flags marked with our names.
Descriptions are below the pictures.
These two are now the battles we will be playing.
Meanwhile, Defu (High Elves) was located futher along up river sipping tea. He decided to engage the Youcai's Tomb Kings. I am surprised he didn't attack the Dark Elves!
Spring Turn 1 - RT (Orcs & Goblins) vs TH (Dark Elves)
In this game I had to defend my lands against the blood thirsty Dark Elves. Tet Hong is playing the Dark Elves and will be known as TH from here on. I am RT.
We had agreed prior to this to play 2500 points and only brought 1 list each. Although we all scored 250 points of extra units, we agreed not to use it for this first game to minimise confusion. Then again, this 250 can be used for other games since it is reinforcements that can be added to any of the 3 Armies we have.
Dark Elves took the day with the following results from the post game dice rolls for our campaign:
- TH gets 1611 points, RT gets 630 points – TH wins
- TH gets 50 point banner for free, selects Cold One Knights
- RT gets Hatred against DE for this Army
- RT lost Bashas’ Axe and Opal Amulet from this Army
- RT BSB Hates DE
Post game thoughts:
I still think my army is quite well written and I need to just get used to playing this army. Keeping the units close together is important so that I can benefit from the BSB and the Warlord's leadership. Onwards and upwards, I will fight my 2nd battle of the day.
Spring Turn 1: RT (Orcs & Goblins) vs YC (Tomb Kings)
Being an Orc - WAR is in my blood! LOL So next game!
This time it is with another Army but same composition. The campaign distinguishes each Army but for simplicity the players decided to use one army list to represent all 3 Armies they have on the Campaign board.
This meant that the above results I rolled are not applicable to this army as it didn't suffer the loss to TH. This is a fresh Army-just so happens it looks the same as the previous army. LOL!
Conclusion: this is still a strong list. This is my second time using this list and am obviously still learning the ropes with the new book. Excuses aside, here are is the outcome:
RT vs YC:
- YC gets 1717 points, RT gets 1538 points – YC wins
- YC gets Stubborn on Skeleton unit of 80
- RT’s Mangler Squig misses next game
- RT have to move army towards own capital
- We have to both roll on the Injury table - will update results here
- Warlord can only be at one place at a time. He has to be in the middle of the Horde and if he is not, then I have make sure that he is.
- The Shaman has to be with the Savages so let's prioritize that.
- Night Goblins and Manglers are good together and deny opponents the flanks. Use that psychological advantage.
