Hi all my gaming group has just finished its BTB campaign and we would like to share our thoughts on the campaign.
Ok firstly the whole story and background for this game setting is massive and rich in depth with well thought out bonus extras, once you have printed out all the rules its more like something you would pay good money for and if this had cost us money all three of us would have to agree it would have been money well spent, you can tell instantly while reading or even at a quick glance none of the book has been rushed or thrown together but well thought out and planned.
The scenarios are great and we had a lot of fun playing them we all agreed that Avalanche wasn’t one of our favourites how ever and even tho we didn’t enjoy this one as much as the rest its still a very good idea and fits in with the story, ok so while on scenarios I will list our preferences.
Martin (me) my favourite was Man Hunt and after a bad start in not reading it through and being nudged back in the right direction by Cianty ( cheers dude ) I found this to be great fun 1v1v1 and then 3 monsters chasing you round the board awesome.
Kev ( Cian SheildBiter ) he said his favourite was Horrors of the Underground and im sure after all his years running around the space hulk this must have brought back some very fond memories for him.
Chris ( kevs son ) His favourite was Heist ( I asked the question and he didn’t even pause to think so I can only assume that he had a hell of a lot of fun playing it).
Ok so Alignments this is a group three cheers point we loved it lots of ideas and lots of depth to add to your warband we enjoyed it that much that when we play are next homebrew campaign we are even thinking on adding something similar to it.
Chaos artefacts where another strong point for Kev his favourite being the Broadsword of Damnation.
So now a few sad notes
being only three of us we only managed to play two of the BTB warbands norse and maneaters we looked at the others but due to models and things we didn’t get to fully experience everything
tho I guess theres always next time
Man eaters I really liked the warband but I found them very hard to play sometimes even a little tiring with the EXP penalty at times the group thought the warband over powered taking the first five games I think it was wasn’t a problem and that’s not being big headed its just the fact that five ogres take a lot of hammering on, then in the middle of the campaign I lost steam and they performed badly no matter what I tried then I decided on an old blood bowl tactic saving and buying the max all in one go tho very risky it soon showed to have payed off when once again I was a force hard to stop.
I have an ogre army in war hammer and tho I don’t play them I know how hard an ogre can be and bringing that to mordheim is no easy task tho I think the BTB team have made the ogres in the fairest sense and a worthy addition to the available warbands to date.
Sitting down and thinking back not only to the book but our games and experiences I cant honestly say I found anything not to have been any fun its all been great after gaming with our group for around 13 years I have to say this has been one of great moments and we have played a lot of games and tried lots of things.
I guess for now I should wrap things up until more things we enjoyed and theres lots spring to mind and post them on here so from all three of us we would like to say
Thanks BTB team for a most enjoyable Setting a lot of fun and all your hard work its been an incredible amount of fun.
….. Oh and for you guys and gals that have endured my writing skills thank you for reading this and for being the kind of community that accepts strays like myself and Sheildbiter and brings us many laughs and help along the way.
