Firstly dear Mr Mod can we please have a separate area for battle reports, rather than this becoming a single thread for all our battle reports - 'despatches from hell' may be a nice title.
Firstly I choose to play Lost instead of the usual Demons as it would be an excuse to get the models out of the box. I then decided to use as many models which don't figure in the starter box as I could so my list was:-
Isha-Akshay, 2 x Squamata warriors, Vorenus, Spitter, Fangs of the Pit, 2 x Corvus Tormentors, 2 x Nomadic Squamate
I had in my head a little back story for the game - those of you whom have come across Balgins and my work on other forums will be used to the style - sorry to the rest.Isha was in conversation with Vargas after both forces had cleared the rocky crag of Vantage point from the blasphemous Satanists. Vargas draw a slow long draught from his water bottle with a few drops dribbling down the outside of the skin to land on the charred, dry, dusty soil below. Isha waited patiently, like a dog waiting for scraps from the masters table until the stopper was replaced, "Give". "No" said Vargas, "You can drink the brackish water without ill effect, we need the purity of this Mary blessed water to sustain our bodies and sustain our soul".
"we fought, we perished, we deserve"
"Eye you did all three and I'm sure that you found some trinkets to keep - NOW GuNNERS show our guests the out door".
The arquebuses were trained with military discipline upon the unwelcome monstrous but moth eaten 'guests' awaiting the order to fire!
Isha-Akshay had seen enough of these thunder sticks in action to know that now was not the time to press the point so with a wave of his hands and a brief utterance of withdrawal .
Funny how men drink to forgot but the Lost drink to remember - the cool clear clean draught unlocks memories of more pleasant times......before 'they' came
I have a few things to add / ask but first the scenario was Conquest - we will play the others at some time, honest.
My question Balgin whom had the 2 fathoms control area as it really messed up my charge lanes for the Fangs of the Pit - as I'm struggling to find whom it was.
What would I do differently next time - well have a second shooter would seem a good idea as my boys did not seem to be very good at damage output. Also should have tried to push the other nomad into your back third.
Well community - having seen the pictures and read the battle reports what tips, hints etc. would you like to add.
