• Sloane vs Amon

    This game was over fairly quickly. Amon was able to dominate a zone and control the other uncontested. I didn’t move Kara’s battlegroup down field quickly enough. Coupled with me forgetting what turn it was after a conversation, I practically handed him the game. I really dont have much to say. Amon did everything right. Challenged my rangers with his units, blocked range fire with his heavies and cover jack, and owned the zones.

    My first time out with Stryker 3. I played him only to get the point for painting him in the Crossroads of Courage Narrative League. This is our last week, so I’m making the best of it.

  • Beth’s E-Leap of Faith vs Vice Scrutator Vindictus

    My next adventure with Beth was against another Menoth player, this time running Vindictus at 75 points. We started the Crossroads of Courage Narrative League this week, so attached Holden as a freebie. In reality, he should have cost 4 points. The scenario was Blizzard. The scenario’s LOS limitation severely impacted my ability to engage his forces with my Storm Strider. That, and the lack of magic weapons in my ranged shots prevented much of my disruption hijinks from messing with Menoth’s jacks. The scenario winning condition also prevented me from taking and holding zones of flags for control points.

  • Beth’s E-Leap of Faith vs Menoth’s Amon Ad-Raza

    Beth’s first outing with her new crew found her in a strange town surrounded by Menoth.  Was this a real battle, or another flashback brought on by the trauma of her imprisonment? The scenario was Take and Hold. Amon was running two Castigators, a Vigilant and a couple Dirvishes. He had a choir, a couple monks, Daughters of the Flame, and a wrack.   Menoth won initiative. I ended up going first. Boo! I  decided to go for the enemy flag. A wall and hill were nearby.  I placed my guard on my 7″ line, backed them up with the

  • Dragon’s Lair 50 point Steambath

    Steambath… a relaxed steamroller? The format was supposed to be 50 point Steamroller with Deathclock. It turned into a 50-point pseudo-Steamroller. There were no turn limits and the game time was reduced to 40 minutes total. So the games were really, really short. The tables were set up each with a different scenario, and the scenario was static on the table. We were also allowed to use limited release models, so I ran Jakes 2. The less competitive nature led to some learning opportunities, but the condensed time meant a lot of games were tied. Game 1 My first game
