Poochie and I decided to up our model size in order to fit in at Cavaliers this Thursday. Sadly he is moving up to the windy city so I need to fit in a bunch of quality games to discuss at length while he's in the north.
We wanted to try a new mission and used the Village rules. Basically you each bid on how many points of henchmen you need to successfully defend the village. We both bid four, so we rolled to see who got to try it.
I took my usual Harald Hardrada clone of Rurik, 3 units of Varangian hearthguard, one of Rus warriors and one of Slav levee. (Vikings)
Pooch had a warlord of the generic singing Celt variety(8P), 3 warriors and one levee as well. Super cool models including women and children and Irish wolfhounds! (Welsh)
|At the start line my Slavic levees lurk|
|Rurik and his brazen followers demand water.|
|Some of Rurik's seasoned Varangian fellow travellers glowering with thirst|
|Irish warriors defending their village|
|The women and children of Eire ready to defend to the death|
|More Irish warriors|
|The wolfhounds at the gates|
|Very tough Irish warlord,"No water for you Rus scum!"|
|Right then guys, form a line, echelon left...|
|Just before all of the warriors around the Irish warlord died|
|And right after the Varangians finished him off|
|The last unit of Irish ready to fight to the last man. The Varangians see their profit margins declining rapidly.|
|A single warrior left! Shall I even waste my time?|
Oh jeez! Three hits and one failed save later...
|The new Irish warlord has some unit building to do, better raise the taxes!|
The insolent Irish have their own blog now!
