PostSubject: Witch Hunters vs Skaven   Mon 4 Feb 2013 - 2:43

So here's my first try at posting a battle report. Last week my Witch Hunters faced Thanquol's Skaven in a simple scenario: first warband that routs loses.

Place where it all happened: HQ Gaming Club Sint-Niklaas (Belgium)

The table:



Another view on the table:



And another one:



The Witch Hunters set out to lay an ambush:



The main strike force, being covered by a Halfling sniper:



They look impressive and feel powerfull, backed up by the Ogre:



But they are hopelessly outmanouvred by the much faster Skaven:



The critical point in the game: the Skaven Assassin takes cover to hide from the rain of crossbow bolts being pointed at him. This leaves the Rat Ogre without his leadership and the big bad thing refuses to move forward:

edit: picture refuses to appear, no idea why

The Witch Hunter's crossbows make short work of the Rat Ogre:



Victory !!



Here you go. Hope you enjoyed it Cool

Since you asked so nicely...

Rat Ogre in all it's glory:



Skaven storming the Witch Hunter's defense line, Witch Hunters around the corner making sure they'll have the initiative:



Warning! Non painted material. No wonder they lost Razz



The dice with the '1' shows where the Assassin was standing before my Warhound bit away his last wound:

Tempted as I am to say "yes", it seems the opposite is true. It's been my experience that the new minis & units of minis tend to have bloody introductions to the games table. Characters with cool names also seem to have early, tragic, & generally messy deaths. Suspect

I can second Nala's sentiments there: I have lost many a brave young up-and-comer to untimely deaths, despite my hopes of them achieving uber-power status!
