It's been 10 months since my last game of Warhammer Fantasy, but with our local army build project at an end, we're all wandering around looking for something to do. Well, I say 'we,' but truth be told, I'm never without something I want to do. Currently, I'm working on a top-secret project for BoLSCon... hopefully it'll come across better than my last secret project, the Dyson Pattern Storm Raven.
Assholes. I still cry myself to sleep at night.
Anyway, I took my Beastmen over to Little Barrera's last night for a quick, 2000 point game. Quick 'cause he kicked my ass quick - that kind of quick. I'm not too worried about it; since my last game, my Army Book has changed, so this was really a 'get to know them' match. Here are some pictures.
The last picture is the Banshee giving my Doombull a kiss... after she killed him with box-cars on her shooting attack. He was out of his unit due to a failed charge on Manfred's unit; had I been able to get in there, I'd have probably had a much better time of it. As it was, my unsupported Minotaurs on the left flank grossly underestimated the Black Knights and were sent running from the board. I did okay maneuvering for advantage in the center, but ultimately I hinged my game on getting a shot at Manfred. My last chance was to tie up the Skeleton's unit with my Doombull and try to get my other units into combat, but it wasn't to be.
All in all, a lot of fun. It's nice to play a game you don't have much of a stake in - we don't play competitive Warhammer around here, so there's not much pressure. While I wish we could occasionally do that with 40K, it's probably not going to happen. That's our bread and butter tournament scene, so every game is testing something, trying something - that kind of thing.
Take care - Brent
