Great games night last night, good turn-out again.
Played WHFB for a change
Took on Nick’s Greenskins. As predictable the Elves took a toll with their crossbows and repeater bows. The scenario forced his Night goblin Shaman to deploy late, only to be taken out by two units of scouting Shades that appeared on either side of him.
The crossbows also prevented Nicks great-looking pirate themed Goblins with the spider banner from doing much damage. Troll vomit accounted for the Cold One Nights, and the High Sorceress but eventually Malus Darkblade saw them off, routed and caught in the pursuit, only to be taken out himself by a doom diver. My hydra was unceremoniously hacked to shreds by his Black Orcs, after frazzling a few with his breath attack, and chomping a few heads. His 5 heads was no counter for the sheer number of attacks rained on him.
My unit of repeater crossbowmen then had Okram’s Mindrazor cast on them by the surviving sorceress, enabling them to withstand the onslaught of the black orc Big Unzs, (uncharacteristically wiping them out ), but eventually succumbing to the masses of Savage Orcs that bore down on them, but not before taking out the Ork Shaman.
Hamish took on Sam’s Chaos Daemons. I’m not 100% sure of the outcome, but I think the Chaos Warriors did not prevail on the day; and the chaos marauders in particular went home in disgrace.
Great to see a WWII game going down too, not 100% sure what the outcome was there either, but it looked like great fun, as did the 40K games.
