Warmahordes League April

Postby Errant » Thu Mar 27, 2014 10:44 am

Seperate topic so my post doesn't get pushed out by replies.

The 2nd month of the league will start from the Monday 31st March (I hope including the Monday makes things simpler)

Game sizes should be either 15 or 25pts as agreed by both players. You can choose either game size and it will count towards the league score. The different sizes is to allow players with more/less models to still play. For example you may have just recieved your box of shiney new toys and really want to use them, or not so good, your toys haven't arrived. It should also let you play the game size you are comfortable with while learning new things, I don't want to overwhelm people with new stuff.

If for whatever reasons you can't meet 15pts then by all means continue to play battlebox games and I will still record them. This is not a serious league, all I ask is that your opponent is ok with it.

If you want to play a 25pt game but you don't have quite enough models then go ahead, i'm not going to mind people playing points down.

SCENARIOS

I'm going to change the scenarios as the games get bigger. There will be a different scenario depending on the game size, this will only be for this month as I feel that 15pts isn't quite enough models for a Streamroller scenario.

15pts - custom scenario

One flag in the centre of the board. Control for 1pt, dominate for 2pts. 4pts to win the game. (i've changed the win condition)

25pts - Close Quarters (Steamroller pack 2014)

I'm taking an official Steamroller scenario for 25pts up, you can get it from the Steamroller webpage and its scenario 5 in the pack.

I will print some copies and leave them at Duke.

SUHWEET!
Is it 15 or 25, or can it be between 15- 25? :p Not sure I have enough to make 25, but so keen to throw some new toys down! (I haven't worked on my list yet though! I shall spend this weekend wrapped up with my Cryx book!)

I think we should all get together and Errant can do a rousing battle speech a lá Braveheart *nods*

I need more models before I can play at 15. I am thinking a trip over to Cardiff to firestorm to fill the gaps. Will probably go right to 25, though will have a 15 list as well if people want to play that.

I should hopefully be getting more of my mini's this week so (provided the coughing fits let me) I intend to do a bit more painting to get my 8pt battle box over the 15pt mark and t'wards the 25.

WHOOT! My boyz arrived today. A Driller, Some Forge Guard, and even more Gun Bunnies! I can now field a glorious 15 pts of metal clad madness. Gonna spend the next couple of days cleaning em up and then start painting em. I've decided I've been ill long enough and I'm not gonna let myself suffer any longer than Saturday ... it's all in the mind. (Well, and the chest but hey, I believe in a positive mental attitude!)

How did it go last night? Did Bintykin's chickens rule the roost, or get a Royal roasting??

How's it working with the Pistol Wraith and the other new additions? Had much of a chance to use them yet?

Not really, I deployed them behind so they were always trailing and not really in use. I always make that mistake! I think about protecting them rather than using them! My Warwitch got used the most in a desperate assassination attempt :p And Skarlock had to cast Ghost Walk on himself to escape Ian's eeeevil Ivan :D
I love that point of the game where my stress and low confidence goes away and it all just becomes hilarious!

I know what you mean. I'm rapidly learning that you've got to just throw things into the meat grinder and let them get killed so that other models can do the dirty stuff. It's taking me a while as I'm not used to this type of game ... but it is SO much fun!

Can I play either you or Jan on Wednesday after your epic Bun fight?

Shiny, I'm always up for multiple games so you'll have at least one opponent if you can.

Yeah I'll be in for Weds again, 15 points though as Exemplar Errants are expensive :(

15pts is my max at the moment as my Battle Box was only 8pts. I've ordered some more minis to make it up to 25 though.

The cool thing about the Pistol wraith is that he doesn't have to get to close to the enemy as he's got half decent range on those guns and can no-sell most terrain, the Skarlock will die if he so much as moves towards the enemy's table edge ;)

Things I learned from our game;
Ivan is pretty pillow fisted despite that big ol' claw, though having the Dodge ability work on a Khador heavy is magnificent 8-)
Shooting at Denny while she's in melee is a bad idea, especially when you miss and nearly kill your own caster as a result (I only remembered that you can't CRA into melee the next day, oopsy...)
The Widowmaker Marksman is a badass, I wish I could take more then one :twisted:

Anyways, are we all meeting on Wednesday as usual? I can bring up to 25pts like last time :)

I'm up for Wednesday 9th and have booked 1 table. I'll be bringing 15 pts but some will be silver as half my original "Battle Box" only arrived recently. I've been playing with Proxy's or Johanna's models.

I won't be able to play Mon-Thurs for the next couple weeks due to work.

Would anyone be ok for games Friday afternoon/evening or the weekend?

I can do Fridays. I'm pretty sure I'm free this Friday but let me double check.

Yes, I've checked with my personal assistant (aka Jake) and all I've got on this Friday is "Drinking Doombar at The Duke" so I can easily shift that to upstairs whilst we clash metal. I'll be there just after 18:00hrs.

How many did you have? I should have enough spare models with me to proxy them if needed unless it is a full unit.
