wildbill Posted March 30, 2015 Share Posted March 30, 2015 Greetings and salutations fellow Warlord-ians! It has been quite some time since I have been active on the forums. Contrary to what people might wish for, I am still alive and well. Just this past week, Warwick and I managed to throw down in not one but TWO Warlord games. It was the first time in (unfortunately) a long time that we played Warlord. I know we both had a lot of fun playing. Here is a recap from my side of things. I will let him chime in for his take. Game #1 I was fielding Dwarves of Taltos against Warwick's Dwarves of Kragmarr. A little friendly cousin rivalry never hurts! I decided that I wanted to field a very non-traditional list just to see how it would do. I had the following: Troop 1: Tohil Steadyhand Kara Foehunter 6 Piercers Troop 2: Snorri Oathbreaker Troop 3: Fulumbar Ironhammer Klaus Copperthumb 10 Piercers Troop 4: Gargram Heavyhand 5 Piercers 1 Swiftaxe 1,000 points total and 28 models. I don't remember much of how Warwick had his army designed so he will definitely have to say what it is. Here is what I remember of how the game went: Warwick rolled like crap and I rolled like complete and utter crap. LOL!!! At the end of the game, I was completely wiped out and he had 10 models remaining on the table. However, 8 of the 10 models were wounded (most of which on their last damage track). A few rolls go my way and I still lose but instead Warwick may only have 3-4 models left. All in all, a very fun game to get back onto the Warlord horse once again. Game 2 saw a familiar foe: Necropolis, specifically a subset based around the Vampires. Wow, brutal. Absolutely brutal. This game was very ugly. But, first, my army list: Troop 1: Fulumbar Ironhammer Klaus Copperthumb 3 Berserkers 4 Mancatchers Standard Bearer Troop 2: Snorri Oathbreaker Troop 3: Tohil Steadyhand Margara Firetongue 3 Warriors 3 Halberdiers Standard Bearer Troop 4: Earth Elemental Troop 5: Hagard the Maimed 1 Piercer 2 Kneebreakers 2 Forgemaidens Standard Bearer Troop 6: Earth Elemental 1,000 points and 26 models. Warwick only had 1 troop in his army. I got every synergy that is built into my army to do what I had intended it to do. It worked beautifully. I was rolling a good solid average on the dice so no complaints there. Warwick was rolling average at most on all of his dice rolls with one exception: Tough checks. That was very bad for the Dwarves. He only failed one Tough check the entire game. One. And he managed to convert one of my Mancatchers to a zombie (the Standard Bearer one no less. LOL!). We had agreed before starting to play that we were only going to play 6 turns. We called it during the 4th turn when it obvious I had zero chance to win. We have another round planned with a scenario in mind this time. I will let Warwick explain. Wild Bill 3 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
