Had my first game of Fantasy in what seems like a lifetime last night facing off against Ben's Warriors of Chaos with my own Warriors.
The core of my army was my 2,000 force but with a few amendments: I had replaced the hand weapon/shield Warriors and the Tzeentch Sorcerer with a Giant, 10 Marauder Horsemen and a level 1 Sorcerer with the Lore of Death
In short it was fun, but Ben's list was far supiorior to mine and he made short work of my army. It didn't help that when i cast Purple Sun (which Ben had been nervous about me getting) i then rolled a miscast, so rather than ripping a nice big hole in his unit, i took out a few of my own. But not all bad, at least my Sorcerer managed to get 2 power dice back, which would be great if i had more than one spell!
things rapidly went down hill for a bit and i lost all my knights to ben's following some abyssmal saves!
However at this point Ben got greedy and tried to use his Lord slay my giant and thus gain an Eye of the Gods roll, only to fail to kill it and have my giant squish him! I did a victory lap of the club as at this point i'd realised that this was the only victory i was likely to get.
to be honest, the only unit that actually seemed to have some balls was the Lord and Halberd Warrior unit and even they seemed to take an age to chew through the enemy.
In the end, Ben agreed to end the game with only my Lord left, knowing that he could easily deal with him!
And so, defiantly standing against his enemies, Kalaghar Stormkrow prepared to make one last stand!
Tonight I went down to the club for the Warmachine and Hordes intro game which i really enjoyed! A big thanks to Mark who ran me and Luke through a couple of games of Hordes. I tried out the Trollbloods and I really enjoyed it, so I may soon have yet more distractions!
Also, a great big thank you to Alan who has dug out his Ravenwing sprues and let Shane and I fight over - i've claimed enough robed biker legs and torsos to complete my Ravenwing Squadron and if i get a single bike, can make up an attack bike meaning that the attack squadron will be complete!
Still working on those Wights at the moment and hope to finish those over the weekend so should have an update soon.
