Two days ago marked the start of a new campaign between my cousin and myself. I play Beastmen
and he rolls with Shadow Warriors (grumble). We have 2-3 other interested in joining late but schedules are all over the place so we're just going day to day with whoever can attend.
First match was as I said Beastmen
vs. Shadow Warriors. We rolled a skirmish, great, no objectives for him to come out of hiding. Wasn't too bad for me though, he set up in an archer line covering 2 streeets, I set up a flanking position with my hounds and centigor, with my minotaur and heroes wading up the middle using cover as they went.
First turn, uneventful.
Second turn. I unwittingly left one of my bestigors staring out a window with his face for all to see! he promplty hit, crit, OOA'd him. I hid everyone else in various alleys and OOS.
Third turn. I was first so I just ran everyone out in the open and made sure my big meanie (Minotaur) was spearheading. As I have no shooting my turn ended, but everyone, save my bestigor and chief were in charge range for next turn.
Instead of running, like his wimpy elves should have, He stood and fired. And misses EVERY SHOT! bahahahaha.
Fourth turn, you guessed it, hounds, centigor and minotaur got into the thick of it, killed 4 elves, and he routed during his turn. So overall, (I know it's only the first game and anything could happen) I am pleased with the martial prowess of my beastmen
. I know the game wqould have gone differently with a little less terrain and later on he'll have all the fun shooting and hiding skills.
Alas we had fun, he's a poor loser sometimes but he gets over it quickly. And we;re just waiting on our friends to join now probably sometime this week hopefully. Dwarfs and Sisters or Skaven...hopefully a little more of a challenge for me in CC
