Logrim Battlefury leads his patrol through the wastelands of the sandhills. Abandoned buildings of what used to be a small village sit nestled in the valley. A'arrock, Logrim's griffon companion streaks through the sky to the far side of the village. Logrim advances his patrol, muttering "That fool bird is gonna get killed one day flying too far ahead!" Suddenly, A'arrock plummets to the ground. It did not look like his normal stooping dive, so Logrim double times the patrol to see what's up. ******* Uru, the River Troll was leading a motley crue of misfits into the barren wastelands. Why did Khong-To want him out here? There was little water to be had, and the troops were always complaining about not having enough water. If Khong-To wanted them out here so much, why did he poison the well at the village they were approaching? What's this? Scouts are reporting a griffon approaching above the village. Reading his patrol, Uru has Ssudai attempt to ground the bird so it can't report his presence to the Dwarves. From hiding, Ssudai successfully brings down the griffon on a small hill just this side of the village. Uru's archers open fire while his ground troops charge up the hill to engage the griffon. The griffon puts ups a good fight, wounding a few of his troops, but is only able to kill one of them before dying. ******* Logrim and his patrol reach the far edge of the village, only to see the griffon go down, surrounded by a reptus patrol. Logrim's scouts have not reported any enemy troops in the area, so this is a bit of surprise. Issuing the advance command, Logrim's patrol engages the Reptus patrol on the hill. Crossbowmen take down one of the wounded soldiers, but before the dwarven soldiers can advance, a giant river troll leading more ground troops comes out of the tree line. ******** My son and a good friend of mine wanted to learn to play Warlord, since that's pretty much what I have been talking about since Reapercon... We built two 500 point armies from my two vampire packs. My son just had to have a griffon... 20% of the total build... My buddy chose Reptus, since those were the "cool" models in front of him on the table when we sorted out all the figures. Both were gung-ho when they started, talking smack about how fast the other would be going down... 2.5 hours later, just having finished the second turn as we spent a lot of time talking about tactics, mistakes in placement (after it was done), how one set of my dice is "fickle" and the other set seems to be "loaded" for my boy, but definitely "counterloaded" for my buddy... They each killed a few of the soldier level mobs, didn't really get into casting much. Made the mistake of not having a healer in my son's troop, which might have saved the griffon... All in all, we had a great time! Son had so much fun, he started asking at breakfast on Sunday morning when we could play again. We played so long on Sunday afternoon, I missed the first 35 minutes of the USA vs Portugal World Cup Match! That AAR will be posted soon!
