AS previous alluded to I am playing in a league. Tonight was the first night. Each week you can only play 2 games that count and countless one off games. I went with marienburg to try a balanced list.
My starting list is as follows
Captain dueling pistols sword
2 champions with 2 handed swords & helmet (worst combo ever)
2 young bloods with club and dagger
2 groups of 2 swordsmen with sword and shield
3 marksmen with long bows
My first game was aginst a reikland list withan elf scout? & a wizard with the magic bow spell, 4 marksmen 3 with bows & 1 with ablunderbuss, captain with pistols, 2 champions & 2 young bloods with club & dagger ( at least i had this right). He is a vetrean . Mission was treasure hunt. I search 5 buildings no box cars. he searched 2 with no luck that menat that the building 10 inch from his deployment zone with both young bloods and 2 marksmen had the treasure. He then walked off the board with the treasure. He put both champions and 2 swordsmen out of the game. They were all fine. after all was said and done i ended up with 72 gold after i sold my 3 wyrd stone shards. So i bought a luck stone for me capt and hired a wizard.
My second game was the exat same list only he didn't have a wizard but had 6 marksmen all with long bows. mission wa sthe same only this game was over in turn 3 when the 2nd building search housed the treasure again 10" away from the table edge and a young blood walked off with the treasure. I only earned 60 gold this time because of band sized with 4 shards. So after upkeep and rearming my champions with sword and buckler( sold the helmets and great swords). I am left with 72 gold and a 118 rating. All henchman and both youngbloods leveled up.
My list going into week2
Captain no change in gear 2 experience
2 champiuons with sword and buckler 2experience
young blood dagger and club ws 3 2 experience
young blood dagger and club side step 2 experience
marksmen with longbows bs 4 2 exp (awesome)
swordsmen with sword and shield ld8 2 experience(shrugs)

Observations: Shooting is awesome sauce. Never got into combat . Enjoyed the game but i need to find a way to deal with shooting. I think it was a wash . I lost nobody got a good amount of gold and i now have a wizard. A wizaard.
