Continuing coverage of Fantasy 8th Edition
So Amy and I have been getting in a couple of small games with the new rules and I have to say it's a blast!
We ran the following lists:
18 Spearmen (with musician and standard bearer)
1 Great Cannon
1 General of the Empire on a Warhorse
1 Battle Wizard (level 1, Lore of Fire, added on after our last game)
16 Arrer Boyz
18 Boyz (with musician and standard bearer)
1 Orc Boar Chariot
1 Orc Warboss on a Boar
1 Orc Shaman (level 1, added on after our last game)
The game went really well for the Orcs, as in the Empire's first turn their cannon exploded! Their wizard got off a spell that cast a cage of fire around the regular Boyz, but it was dispelled in the second turn when it was cast again. The Orcs got off successful charges against the Empire Handgunners and Spearmen, and the Shaman even got to cast Gork's Warpath though Gork only stomped once then moved on to other things.
At the end of the day, the Empire were tabled and the Orcs had only lost a handful of models.
Next time I think we'll introduce the cool new terrain rules!
