First Victory!!!

Recommended Posts

It's only taken me about fifteen games of Warlord, and switching to a different army, to finally achieve victory over the Dwarves!!!

 

I'm not the swiftest cat, even on a good day, so it takes me a lil' while to learn a game, even one with elegantly simple mechanics like Warlord. I'm no tactictal genius, but I do like to wargame.

 

I heartily applaud the Reaper game team for this game. Any game that you are loving enough to tough out losses until you get a victory is a real treat.

 

My Reven have still never beaten the Dwarves. It took Boris Mingla and his Mercs to pull off the task. I was pleased as punch, even with many unpainted models on the table.

 

I'll have to post my custom Boris Mingla in the show off section when he's done.

 

He's even street legal, made up of two different Reaper models!!!

I was too busy concentrating!! My initial rush of the Stone Giant right into his troops was either very bold, or very stupid, but it held up enough of his troops for Boris' large troop of Dark Dwarves, Spearmen, and Cultists to move en masse. Thunganir went up the left flank with his Dark Dwarves and Spearmen, and Raseri was teleported by Leisynn into the back of the Dwarven force, and took out twice his points, including the pesky casters.

 

Ado Salint was also with Boris, and lived through three tough checks and made it to the end!!!

 

I need a few more games with this force, and maybe Reptus, before going back to the Reven. I need to find a better way to run them.

Can you give us an idea of what your opponent is typically playing when using the Dwarves?

 

Reven is a capable faction, we should be able to give you some idea of what to take and how to use it against Dwarves.

 

Start with the Bull Orcs and build around them using the Tomukh doctrine.

 

Excellent value for points models are Narg, Gaaguk, Korgug, and these models can anchor your force.

 

Also, Reven have the most variety in troops available to any faction, so if something isn't working you have a huge number of options.

Well, the Dwarven King diminishes those Tough checks considerably, and he usually gets those miners with a burrowing spellcaster to give me grief. I'll post more details when I'm out of the office and back home.

 

I'm fairly confident I can go back to my Reven, as I do love them, and get more out them in game. I'll post my lists and get some feedback in the Reven section.

 

I appreciate any and all advice.

 

Cheers.

Just goes to prove the old saying: "Just beat on something hard enough and it'll give eventually." Congrats!

 

I've been having similar success recently. Not only have I scored a couple of wins, our group has grown to 4.

Poison arrows.

 

After watching what they did to my wife's troops, the only thing I can say is poison arrows. Any model hit was pretty much guaranteed to take another point, just murdered her archers. 40 points is worth it.

The Gnoll archers did some fine work with their poison arrows. My friend will want to avenge his one loss against the Mercs, so it may be longer before the Reven come back. So much painting to do!!

      Another mini which has been done for a while: a raptor.  This was meant for a module that uses a raptor hatchling as an animal companion for a kobold Ranger.
       



       
      Here is a link to the WIP.

      C&C welcome.

      I totally haven’t looked up this character’s name. He’s great. He’s an orc. Bones 4. Blah blah blah. 
       
      Anyways, I stopped painting orc-face mc-Orc doodle the orc prematurely out of painting fatigue. I had lots of other shiny new bones to paint. It’s a great sculpt and he deserves respect though. 
       
      So let’s try this! If you’ve got improvements to suggest I’ll implement them and post a new picture. It could be fun and you’ll motivate a fellow nerd to “brush up” and turn a decent job into a great job - which is one place I could use encouragement. You can of course call it done anytime you like, but sometimes you know the figure needs more. This will be a fun exercise.

      Hello forum family, slowpainter is back  this time I was a bit faster, prolly 'cause this mini was really easy to paint.
      For obvious reason the palette of my choice is cold. Used various tones of blues trying to make contrast and not stay monochrome. A bit of gold and some rusty metal and she is done.
       


      Every c&c is more than welcome, let me know if you like her :)
      Thanks
