Reven vs. Dwarves.
Posted 25 April 2012 - 02:31 PM
The basil plant from my girl was the only terrain. I played the Reven. I had an Ettin Captain, Nor'okk, with a bunch of lesser Orcs, and two elites, one being a Bull Orc Berserker, and a Bugbear bully. My other troop was the hill giant, proxied with Teddy Knuckles from Fenris games.
Dalton played the Dwarves. He had three troops, with a mix of crossbows, halbediers, and regular grunts. He also brought the female sniper with her crossbow, and Snorri Oathbreaker with his abilities.
Some truly crappy pics:
The Dwarves had only a few crossbows left and maybe a halbedier. It was a close match and left me drawing up army lists over and over. I have to finish painting what I've got first, but I will amass a horde of Reven to beat those pesky Dwarves.

You got me all into the post with your build up.. You had some pictures (good or bad it still helps) and then you just gave the inferred result.....
Man, I need some guts to the story...
Who were the standout models good or bad for the match? Any epic rolls out of no where (like a crossbow hitting the giant in melee, etc...)?
Any beat downs?
But, one thing I can very much relate to.. I could spend hours putting together army lists.... hey wait a minute... I DO do that... :)

The reason for no terrain was that we played at my girlfriends' house, and all of our terrain is elsewhere. The true gauge of a game is setting up on a kitchen or dining room table with no terrain and just pushing the models and throwing the dice.
Dalton and I have played Chronopia together for over ten years from this same initial kickoff. Warlord has earned our respect after an eight year hiatus. We jumped in for the first edition and it didn't grab us like this edition.
My half painted and unbased models will get some more love and then the terrain will come out. Warlord will never be the same.

1. "sniper girl shot him in CC" : you cannot do a ranged combat attack against a model in BTB (unless you have SA blow throw)
2. And along the same lines if a model could make a ranged combat in CC, ranged combat does not provoke melee defensive strikes, it only provokes defensive ranged attacks if the target model has a ranged attack.
Otherwise, love that he made 4 tough rolls. Those are the rolls that are spoken of for long periods of time.

Relearning the game after eight years is going to be worth the effort.
I'll repeat that Warlord passed the no terrain table test. Even with the missile advantage, the game wasn't a wash out for me, and it was no distraction worrying about movement modifiers, cover bonuses, etc., when we're still learning the special abilities.
I'm extraordinarily impressed with the balance of the game and all that's gone into it.

The Dwarves we've got were painted by a mutual friend to a beautiful standard, so I'm not wanting to insult them!! Just beat'em.
