Another great round tonight. The Evil team took it lumps with myself being the only winner. I faced off against Wood Elves...whom I've played plenty but only once with Daemons. Daemons have serious staying power and Bill brought the tree's but some bad luck with the Treeman (failed a Stubborn 8, then rolled low on the flee, so it was cut down by my Plaguebearers) Let me collapse his flank, while one of my units of Fleshhounds racked up tons of kills before meeting its maker at the hands of the Highborn Wardancer General. In the End Bill didn't have enough shooting (which is the bane of Daemons) and the Trees aren't powerful enough to take on the Daemon infantry without multiple supporting charges. Only The Wood Elf General, 3 Wardancers and an Eagle survived giving me the Solid Victory. I'm 2-0 so far will see how it goes next week.

Good game last night. As per the description I got beaten pretty bad. The treeman breaking (and getting caught) early was pretty disheartening. I think, no I know that John is right, I needed more shooting. However I think that had I made better use of my superior movement options then I would have faired better in this game. Terrain was ok however I need to remember to set some of the woods a little closer...
Oh well I'll keep tinkering with lists and see what I can come up with. Really not looking forward to playing against the other Demon player in the campaign...
