Threejacks Posted July 10, 2015 Report Share Posted July 10, 2015 Met up with Warhammer_T last evening over at Red Castle games for some AoS and yes,that store has very nice tables(4) and a great selection of terrain for miniatures,plus the store crew is very friendly:) I brought my "Great Moonclan" and War_T had brought his Ogres to throw down.My army came in at 39 models while his was around 15 I think?.We decided to play 6 turns or until 8:00 as I had to head back a bit early.That gave us around an hour and a half to play this out. We knew that the Ogres would stomp down the small force of Moonclan in a straight up mosh fight so War_T decided to make it interesting and go for a Sudden Death VC,He chose "Blunt" after we had complete setup and I chose a scroll of 20 Moonclan spears and shields to be the target...the block furthest away from his main force of course. My army list was as follows; NG warboss on Squig NG Shaman Mangler Squig 20 Moonclan archers 2x20 Moonclan Spears and shields 3x2 fanatic scrolls,so I had 2 fanatics hidden in each of the Moonclan blocks Im not 100% certain on what Warhammer_T`s army had but from memory I think it was; 2x2 Mournfang cav 1x4 Leadbelchers 1X7? IronGuts 1 Wizard 1 Hero(General) I took pics of most of the game turns so ill link those from my gallery here,the tags should show the game turns on them. We did choose to use the whole 4x6 table even though our force was pretty small for it,,im sure that had ALOT to do with the outcome,hehe. Anyhow,I basically sent the Mangler forward first turn and started a game long retrograde away from his line.There was no contacts on turn one,just a small bit of magic from my Shamans Curse of the Bad moon...only got that off twice the whole game,ugg. Turn 2 I got the Mangler into some action with the Leadbelchers,he did some damage killing one I think,,I really love the Manglers now,they get along the lines of 14 attacks average at full str. Turns 3-4 The Ogres started lumbering into charge ranges,and engaged with his Cavalry on my right flank.Mournfang sure took a nerf in this game as the fanatics messed up the first batch that came at me.The melees that took place in these turns seen some pretty meh rolls on War_T`s part while I was probably average.My Archers put out a good volume of wounds as well thanks to the "exploding 6`s" on hit rolls part of the formation bonus,,actually I think I forgot about that with the Mangler ,doh!. Turn 5 I was getting mauled by the Ogre blocks that were now pretty much in my face.I used my other two batches of fanatics to just fly out and counter charge his Cav and Ironguts,thus keeping them back off another turn even though ball wielding freaks died miserable deaths before ever getting a chance to do any damage,heh. Turn 6 I was down to just my Moonclan spear blocks,General and shaman,He finished off the shaman with shooting and sent his Ironguts into my forward block on Spears,,they were reduced to 15 models but didn't have to take Bravery due to inspiring presence,so yeah,,steadfast ftw!. It was just shy of 8:00 so we decided another turn was in order! Turn 7 I didn't get to go first so he stomped the last 5 Spearmen in the forward blocked,announced a charge on the target block,but since I had fanatics in that block I sent them out,counter charged and stymied that.To wrap things up in my turn I sent my General against his last Mournfang Cav model and we fought it out with the Cav model going down to a squig bite lol. Overall it was great fun,and this battle pretty much shows that with the lack of balance in this game currently,theres still plenty of game to be had! Also it doesn't have to end up being a big mosh in the center either. I think the best route for balancing the game right now is to just look over what you are going to play with your opponent and agree upon what would be a fair fight within the time frame you have to play. Gonna try to link to my gallery here,pics should have turn number tags on them. http://www.ordofanaticus.com/index.php?/gallery/album/122-age-of-sigmar/ I wish I was better at taking pics,Warhammer_T`s Ogre`s are friggen stunning! 7 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
