Wood Elves deployment- Felix deployed 1st and also went 1st.

Empire Deployment- all the terrain we used definitely hindered my
deployment I didn't have room to deploy shooters 10 wide.

Waywatchers ambush my Cannon and crew turn 1
there wasn't a thing I could do about it. My cannon never fired
a shot this game, nice move felix!

My Dwarf Mercs break a unit of Dryads, they of course
can not catch them, this time.

My swordsmen take on the other Dryad unit, they break
and are overrun!.

Wild Riders are always hard to kill, group magic from Felix's 3 wizards
help the Wild Riders crush my knights.

Until my General joined the fray, his 3 attacks and
the Sword of Sigismund, made the difference.

Wiping out the Wild Riders he then charged the Glade Riders,
taking them all out in a single turn leaving him locked in combat
with the units Spellsinger as the game ended.

Wardancers weeding thru my Swordsmen, However it was not quickly
enough as they broke, then rallied, charged again, and broke a second time
finally running off the table.

My remain Swordsmen and Dwarf mercenaries
battle the last unit of Dryads who break and are overrun
by the dwarfs!

This match was alot closer than it looked, Felix's magic was deadly with 3 casters and he destroyed all my shooting and cavalry units as well as my cannon, leaving me only My 3 Heroes, 13 Swordsman and 14 Dwarfs and 4 Militia Men at the end of game. While he dominated the magic and shooting phases, he relied solely on his strong skirmishers vs my large blocks of troops in close combat. The CR results did him in, as he was forced to break repeatly, in the end being pushed off the table in retreat. More on this game later.

I working on setting up another saturday afternoon game at my house on 10/27 if you can make it. I would myself and Felix, and whomever else. I can host 4-6 players so I love to get a big team/sceanrio going on my 4 X 8

Your game looked fun. I want to get in on the WFB right away but there are a couple of projects a bit in the way. Blah. Very cool report by the way!

Felix said...

Xenite, you should play! We're finally at a points level where Tomb King character dependence doesn't really suck (at least I think). If you can field 1250-1500 I'm good to go. John's a bit on the low side since he's still working on his 1250 "block". Just let me know!
