Yesterday i played the second game of our campaign with my two nephews.
The contestants were:
A pistol heavy pirate warband
A Bowmen heavy Brettonian warband and last but not least
The Slayer pirates.
In the first game the three warbands met in a wyrdstone hunt scenario and met some zombies at this battle. After the battle the leaders heard some rumors about a huge ship in the port of Mordheim, which came in the night. Nobody has seen a crew member and it is rumored that huge treasures can be found.
The aim of this mission was to get to the undead
ship, and to capture most of the three treasure chests on the ship and bring them a) from the map or b) capture then, bring them off the ship and hold them until round ten is finished. After round ten the ship leaves the port and everybody on board flees from the ship The winner was the warband with the most captured treasures. In a tie the warband wins which was the first warband on the ship.
What the leaders did not know is that the ship is a trap. After the turn, when the first player touches the ship immediatly roll each for the three hatches on the ship. On a 4+ an opponent appears:
Roll again: 1-3: It is a zombie
4: It is a ghoul
5:roll again 1-3 it is a death wolf or 4-6 a wight hero
6: roll again, 1-2 it is the vampire captain, 3-4 the necromancer with two spells, 5-6 it is the hired ogre
The winner of the positioning roll choose the middel position with the hill and the direct route to the ship. He also had the superior range combat position.
The slayer pirates came second ans chose the right flank with a row boat as alterrnative route
The pirates went over the left flank (there was also a raft) and shot back at the Bretonnians with ther handgun and swiverl gun.
Finally the three warbands met at the ship. The first undead
which appeared were the pirate captain and a death wolf. So the Bretonnian lost its brave bowmen due to the attak of these evil undeads
The first treasure was secured by the pirates who used the raft climbed on board and threw the first treasure down on the raft and went off the map. In meantime he lost some members due to the range combat of the brettonians and one pistol shot of the slayer captain. And finally he routed with his first test
The Bretonnians never got hold on the ship, they were driven back two times by the undead
vampire captain and started to rout early, but they were able to stay on baord until round 9. The slayers boarded the ship in round 6 and were able to get a hold on ship and to throe two tresures off board on their row boat. The also killed several zombies two ghould the, two death wolves the vampire an the ogre and lost the master gunner in these fights.
It was a good day for the slayers who won the fight with two captured chests. Unfortunately the master gunner Malakai with his double barreled blunderbus found his doom in the ogre.
The captured treasure and the found wyrd stone nearly was enough to hire an new master gunner with blunderbus.
The pirates lost two members which they also were able to replace.
The Bretonnains did not loose any fighter and were able to increase their warband.
Great battle, which hopefully infected my two nephews more with the Mordheim virus.
