Sometimes you just have to have a Post-war/Cold War battle. I was especially feeling this tonight because I had just finished two QRF M-60's. I really like the "heft" and weight of these models. Nice looking too. Anyway, Kafala Pass leads to the heartlands of both East and West. East and West are the names of my two Imagi-Nations. This could be the start of a whole new something...?
Whew! Just ended the last game of the Dark Elf vs. Beastmen campaign with Prof. Elf. 3500 points. We started late so I was fearing a long one, but no, my Dark Elves just plowed through the Beasts! The Witch Elves (a huge unit of 46 with a heroine) were particularly amazing! With their poisoned weapons, frenzy and the Cauldron of Blood, they hacked their way through three of the Bad Guy's units and broke his fighting spirit. A massive Dark Elf victory.
Yesterday, The Kid and I realized we hadn't played with the little Star Wars guys for a while. Actually, it was more me. I really wanted to get the Wookies out on the table. And the Stormtroopers. And then it just went crazy until the table was covered.
After a major battle, the action shifted to a small adventure involving the three Lukes trying to prevent the five Princesses from being "bountyed". If the Bounty Hunters succeed in capturing and ransoming the Princesses, they can buy a fleet of Star Destroyers and take over the galaxy! ...And Hammerhead will be the Emperor!! Tut ta Daaa...To be continued...
2000 points tonight. First turn to Dark Elves. Had to deal with some poxy scouting Harpies which began the game behind my battleline. It took two turns of missiling and Hydra breathing before my centre returned to the battle. My plan was a refused right flank while encircling with my left. It pretty much worked and the Beasts were crushed.
My wonderful Dark Elves. They are probably the army I enjoy the most playing in Warhammer. (Note: The dragon is proxying for a second Hydra.)(Hydras never fail to set Prof. Elf off on how underpointed they are and ....and... and...)(I can't wait to play with three Hydras next game! he-he.)
No music tonight which was great because I was going up the wall with excitement over a solo game of Warhammer Fantasy Battles Second Edition. This was partly inspired by the fantastic new site: Ye Olde Skool Warhammer. Second Edition is where it's at! Hearing this, a bunch of pre-slotta Citadel and Asgard Dwarves journey towards an encounter with some Grenadier Dwarves in the ever-escalating Dwarf Civil War. Unfortunately, they are ambushed in the night by Orcs of the Smiling Face Tribe.
The Dwarfs form up.
Dwarf crossbows in skirmish order.
Major and Minor Hero challenges.
Members of the victorious Smiling Faces smile for a post-battle group shot.
