Grandad (Mordor) Strikes Back

Sun Oct 25, 2015 12:56 pm

In our return match Grandad (Mordor) had to break through Callum's (Gondor) lines with at least 2 warbands at over 50% strength each.
Grandad chose as many warbands as he could with the cheapest points value figures - quantity has a quality all its own! and Callum chose a balanced force of infantry. (we have not mastered the cavalry rules yet).
Image

Image

Grandad's plan was simple - draw the enemy in to the centre and rush past on the flanks to win!
Image

Grandad's centre and left flank engage first led by the Vomitbelly the Expendable (he does not know what "expendable" means)
Image

Image

And the Gondor warbands fall for the trap!
Image

Grandad's warbands in the centre die heroically! Look bottom right a warband is sneaking round the Gondor lines.
Image

Image

Grandad's left flank runs into trouble.
Image

Gondor shouts out, "Victory!" Vomitbelly dies never knowing what "expendable" means!
Image

Only then does Callum realise that a whole warband has flanked him on the left and is racing for the base line and on the right the survivors (exactly 50%) of a warband are sneaking past as well.
Image

Victory to Grandad! (for once)

Great photos!

Vomitbelly the Expendable may be the best orc captain name ever.

Thanks. Callum liked the name too! Unfortunately now old Vomitbelly the Expendable is dead I'll need to come up with some more names for our expanding forces and to replace the loss rate in orc captains.

True!
Well if your orc captains are all expendables, why not work through this list.
