PostSubject: Hunt for the Messenger - a six player battle report   Sun 28 Dec 2008 - 3:42

Hi everyone!
Yesterday – while waiting for BTB and a journey into the Northern Wastelands / the Cathayan Borderlands – my Marauders of Chaos took a “short trip” to Mordheim to take part in a massive 6 player battle.
The photos are not the best. The lighting was horrible and my camera could not make up for it. But I wanted to share the few decent ones anway Very Happy .

The scenario was called “Hunt for the Messenger”.
5 Warbands tried to intercept a messenger (a souped-up vampire with a 4+ save, dodge and 3 wounds) carrying a treasure map. The Vampire (played by a visiting friend from Frankfurt who is not playing in our campaign and was therefore hopefully impartial) had 5 small groups of 2-3 undead scattered across the board to help him cross the board lengthwise.

The participating warbands:
Carnival of Chaos

Dark Elves

Orks

Reikland Mercenaries

Marauders of Chaos

The Vampire:

The Undead Player used his groups of Skeletons, Dire Wolves, Zombies and Ghouls to delay the warbands. He positioned them skilfully in small alleys to block all the warbands and to prevent them from marching while the Vampire raced across the board.

While this was going on fights broke out between the Orks & the Carnival of Chaos as well as between the Marauders of Chaos & the Dark elves.

More than halfway across the board the Vampire had to choose between three possible river crossing points - two bridges and a ford - blocked by the Orks, the Reikland Mercenaries and the Druchii. He choose to fight his way through a small Ork detachement while holding off the other warbands with his remaining undead.

The Reikländers played a waiting game and amused themselves by shooting across the river at everyone in range (The Undead, Orks and Druchii at that time. He sure was making a lot of enemies Wink )

Due to mounting losses the Carnival and the Orks both routed – the way to the bridge and the waiting Reikländers was free for the Vampire who plowed into the Champions guarding the bridge.

The Marauders and the Druchii were still fighting on the other side of the river. My Marauders routed pretty soon after that but the Druchii could not reach the Vampire in time. The battle on the bridge ended with the Vampire victorious.

He carried the map from the board and left 5 bedraggled warbands behind.

In retrospective I made the vampire to strong for our starting warbands to stop unless someone managed to surround him. Skillfull play on the undead side prevented that and our visitor well deserved his victory.

Cool pics, Horatius! It's interestening to see Wolfgang's amazing Mordheim in action and the shots are nice.

I especially like the one where you have the bridge full of mercenaries in the first pic and only a few left in the second when the vampire arrived Very Happy

Oh, and what model is the Dark Elf shown in the last pic of the delaying action section?
