Grim Hammers vs Hunter Orcs

Sun Feb 28, 2016 7:52 pm

Took the boys to Warhammer World today and we managed to find a suitable table to try out the hero rules (we are learning the game and hadn't finished painting the heroes until today). We didn't worry about the points it was just Yazneg and twelve hunter orcs vs a Grim Hammer captain and twelve Grim Hammers.

This was our first game using heroes. Yazneg proved his worth but the Grim Hammer captain was shredded by the orcs. The orcs were victorious in this game though it was very close! We love the Grim Hammers but their single attack with a -1 penalty for two-handed weapons is no match for the 2 attacks of the Hunter Orcs in hand to hand combat.

Sounds and looks like a nice little game. I guess with dwarves you should play really defensively and slowly. Just throwing axes and taking sure kills. Then when the hunter orcs would Brake, the dwarves would win for the orcs having low courage.

Using the two handed weapon is optional. You may want to use a standard attack, especially when you have 1 die vs the opponent's 2. The odds of winning are already against you.
Then when there is a good chance of winning, ie you outnumber the enemy, they've been knocked down, you have spear support etc, wail on them with 2 handers to get the job done.
