Great start to a new campaign tonight, 4 games going with almost everyone with lots of painted models on the table. I had a great game vs Leo's High Elves tonight...Leo ran an Arch Mage, a Lv 2 Wizard, Phoenix Guard, Swordmasters, White Lions, 4 BT's and a Chariot, a 2 squads of Archers VS my Daemon Prince of Khorne, Herald of Slannesh, 2 x Bloodletters, 2 x Daemonette2, 2 x Fleshhounds, 2 Bloodcrushers. His shooting and magic plummed me, but once we got into combat the elite troops and both wizards were dead by turn 4...I continued to eat missle fire. Until just some archers and a pair of BT's remain...bonus points pushed this to massacre, I didn't have much left other than my characters and partial front ranks of three units. but picking up both objectives, 2 banners, and killing the HE general gave some big extra points. We will see if I get as lucky next week!

No Vampires this time? Boooooo. Guess those of us who root for the undead will have to settle for the mummies.

Bill Lim said...

Indeed no Vamps this time...Which does make me sad. Nice to see that there are some others keeping an eye on our little campaigns.

If you have the oppertunity I highly suggest trying to set up something like these games with your own groups. It really adds another aspect to the game as a whole. Instead of just "battleing" you are "batteling for a greater purpose/goal".

John,

Is there anyway that I could get any info on your campaign? i would love to do something like this for LotR and I like what you guys have going here.

So if your willing to share, here is my e-mail add TJKulinski@cox.net

Tim,

I emailed you a bunch of stuff..let me know you get it,-

Tim Kulinski said...

Got it man, thanks...

Bill Lim said...

Oops John, I just realized a big mistake in my inital "spending" of empire points.

I had bought a mine...however I can't put a mine on an empty (non mountian/river) hex.

We'll need to switch that over to a castle(fort?) instead.

Thanks

John@Plastic Legions said...

man, In our rush to get going we totally overlooked that for both you and bob. Definitely changed for next week!..no worries.

John said...

Yeah, I caught a link to this site from I think BOLS a while back and I've been following the campaigns ever since.

I'm not 100% all the way into WFB yet; I haven't decided which army to go with yet. I'm leaning toward Vamps or Tomb Kings, but I'm leery of TK with the rumors of a new codex on the horizon.
