Ed finally moved into his new flat and invited me to christen his new gaming board with some Ales thrown in. How could I say no..
It was Eds Retribution vs Khador. well Butcher...
|Don't Like the look of that big fella!|
|Armour and more Armour|
As we did not have any steam roller packs we decided just to go smash. Ed won the roll and started first.
As normal in war machine it was run run run first turn even though I tried a pop shot with my destroyer.
Ed starts to move in and his infantry start to move in position to cause my jacks some pain! then the big fella moves in!
Ed begins chipping away at my jacks but luckily the mechanics are more the up for the challenge to fix them.
I kill his mage hunter assassins and some of his infantry but they have vengeance. Its not great.
I have to feat but I can only managed minimal damage ( Khador dice rolls strike!) to his colossal while he manages to destroy 3 heavies 2 on the charge and with models that have weapon masters and it hurts..
The only thing I can do is try to protect butcher from all sides by blocking with other models and see if I can do an epic butcher vs colossal match up.
But even with my remaining models chipping at the remains of Eds infantry and colossal butcher is defeated..
A good game that would have been a lot tighter I feel if my jacks lasted longer but Ed had favour with the dice gods and rolled well evan triple 6's at one point, but all in all a good game and happy to have the first game at his new home.
Later on in the evening I was given my christmas present from Ed
I was given this before the errata but I was not into mad dog spam any way and can't wait to build this as I recently made a Drago out of the old metal version.

Looks like christmas will be busy building as I have these two to do as well.
Better crack out the magnets.
