Really glad that Defeng has joined the Blood in the Badlands Campaign held at Titan. He put a 2000 point force and off we went to Titan Games for our game.

Also, deployment was strange. You split the long table edge into 3 parts and rolled the dice for each unit prior to deployment. You then deploy them depending on the die rolled:
1: leftSo this basically forces you to reshuffle your army once deployment is done.
2, 3, 4: centre
6: you choose
|Deployment saw DE on the right flank while OAG ended up on the left flank!
|For some reason we both ended up placing our armies on the opposite sides of the battlefield!
|DE holding this hill tightly
|DE made their Vanguard move
|DE edge forward and in their shooting phase took out 4 of the Wolf Riders. Magically the last man decided to stay!
|And the large block of Sea Guard move in
|In the OAG Magic phase I used Hand of Gork to move the block of Big Uns up to threaten his objective
|While I started mustering the defense around my own objective
|The DE were very mobile, skirting around my main blocks. There was little I could do but to hunker in. Should have kept the Trolls back
|DE sent the main block of Sea Guard close to my Big Uns to lure them into Frenzy charging them
|In Turn 2 I hugged the objective as much as I could to prevent DE from moving in
|Failed my Frenzy check and had to charge the Sea Guard
|And DE managed to kill enough to force a over-run killing them all including my Shaman.
|DE charged the lone wolf so I fled, twice. 2nd flee was from the Hydra (out of the picture) leaving him stranded in Elven zone
|Meanwhile DE kept harassing me at the objective but I hugged the objective tight, preventing DE from capturing it
|Fortunately for me, Snagla finally decides to arrive so I moved him and Deff Creeprs into base contact with the Objective to win the game!
In good sportsmanship, we both played on for another Turn to see what would have happened. While the game was decided, we thought it would be fun just to see how it panned out as Snarsnik tries to run off to the hills.
|Swung Skarsnik and the Trolls around to set up the next turn charge
|Meanwhile the rest of the army moved up to support his getaway, or was likely tricked into it
|Much like we predicted, DE charged in and basically toasted Snagla and the Deff Creepers. I managed to kill off the Warlocks on my right flank and left just enough room for Skarsnik to run off the table!
Destroying the supply route of Morathi, Snagla quickly scurried off with the Deff Creepers to catch up with Skarsnik. Mission accomplished!
