Last Friday Jason and I had a quick practice session, his first, of Force on Force. A single squad and an MG versus the same. There was a church that was a food dump and we were both starving, poor supplies -1 die. I narrowly win but it doesn't matter we were still learning the rules really.
There is a definite death spiral that you go through, rotate or relieve those fireteams if you can! They will not be long on this earth otherwise.
Saturday we had the beginning of our Delta Green campaign. I'm pretty stoked! More later.
Tuesday Andy came over and we thrashed out a typically brutal SAGA game on my dining room table. Too cold in the garage these days!
|It's pretty dark in my dining room these days... what with the Scots and all...|
Like me he brought a hero of the ages, Kenneth Mac Alpin. He also brought a warband of hard drinking Scots. 4 Hearthguard and four units of warriors broken into three units.
I had my Kyivan analogue of Harald Hardrada, Rurik of the Kyivan Rus'! As well as him, I had my twelve Hearthguard in two 6 man units, and two units of warriors.
|There's the bastard! Kenneth Mac Alpin.|
|"Drink with us..."|
|That's them, the drunken bastards, in the distance on the hill to the right.|
|Scots warriors and Kevin himself in the dark, dark lands...|
My hirdmen advance on my right, straight into a large unit of warriors. We have 17 dice, and after his bonus defence dice and a counterattack by the wily Scots are utterly destroyed without losing a stand!
|The first battle!|
|My Bondi on the left and my Hirdmen on the right staring Valhalla in the face.|
|A battle on a bridge! Look at that wyvern shield!|
|Kevin Mac Alpin and co-conspirators. Loitering nearby looking cool.|
|Rurik and his bondi at the other end of the bridge..|
We clash head on over the stream near the refugees and Ruriks expedition to Scotland was over.
Fun game Andy! Well played, that Scots board is a biatch and it was able to shut down my Varangians one trick which is straight up assault smashing into things.
AAR, I need to get a better handle on my own, albeit primitive, battleboard.
