The Battle of Mordheim

o/

Stupid Ogre spent most of his time drooling...
Screech came over to play Mordheim last night & we managed to get two games in. The first one ended so quickly (the end of turn 1) as to not really count (nor be worth his drive to my place). It was the 'guarding the stash' scenario, and bull rushing the center with Skaven is quite easy. So after a quick aftermath & adding a few more rats to my ranks, we then played the 'Chance Encounter' scenario. Truth be told though, it was more like a direct frontal assault! Indeed, we've never had such a bloody or brutal game of Mordheim as that one!

Really need some WHFB terrain, so I don't have to use 40k terrain.

The Photo above shows (left to right) the battle as it was joined, more piling in, eventually thinning out, and on to where I chose to rout lest my rat ogre with his one remaining wound get gunned down by Screech's Telion-like hand gunners (seriously, they're ridiculous!)


Damned cell phone cameras! He could see the Shredder (who summarily took yet another round to the chest). Luckily he was only knocked down and was lucky enough to not fall over the side (a fate that took out an elf ranger in the first game & permanently killed my last not-so-giant rat in the second).


The aftermath was even worse! While never rolling a single die more than once, the models above are all the fatalities suffered! I never rolled higher than a '2' on all of those rats including my Black Skaven, ouch!  Screech only lost his two newly hired spearmen.

On a totally different note from the bloodbath above, Screech recently acquired a large amount of FW IG tanks, turrets and whatnot. I was kinda jealous till I thought about my Red Corsairs and yeah, I'm still (apparently)  envied for having that army show up on my doorstep unannounced. Anyways, he's sold some of it & asked what I wanted out of it, if anything. I wanted another Basilisk to go with my loyalist IG allied contingent, and for my birthday he gave one to me! Its a bit dusty and in need of some new paint, but to be honest, I was kinda hoping he would do that!

Huzzah!

I clicked on the Mordheim photos and came to a tank :)

lol, well the Skaven are known for their dirty tricks! The tank was just a little add on to the post showing off my newest toy!

I just saw yet another blog where Edwin guest blogged.
First question: How do we stop this nonsence?
Second question: Why aren't you smearing your drooling rants on others blogs annoyingly... like Edwin? :)

I like to keep my rants pure, rather than dilute them by spreading them all over the internet, lol...

What? Can't a fellow write for a decently know blog in an attempt to spread my internet wings and maybe someday write for bols?

IF you can't handle these few comments, why on earth would would want to write for BoLS where the comments are as hostile as it gets???

madival said...

I can handle them, I just hate feeling like that guy soometimes. I know y'all. That's the thing that sucks sometimes.

Da Masta Cheef said...

Well if you write anything on BoLS, half the commentors (if not all of them) will try to make you feel like 'that guy'. You may as well start off your post with a 'kick me' sign image...

I just might. I really like that.
