Last night was a chance to get the legion out and play some hordes.

I decided I’d take Kallus, legions newest caster out for a spin having only tried him once at a casual event and not doing that well.

Played 35 points vs Copp’s Cygnar run by Siege. Have to say everything went pretty much to plan with legionaries running for 2 turns then getting killed to become incubi during Copp’s turn 2. Siege was on fire from turn 2 onwards thanks to the Ravagore and a lucky scatter. Turns 3 and 4 settled the game as the incubi and warmongers pretty much battered everything in combat thanks to dark guidance.

Definately going to play Kallus some more, and may pair him with Bethayne for any steam roller events I go to…assuming I get around to putting her and Belphagore together!

First night back at the Cranfield club and it was time to break out the Hordes. I was playing Adam and his Cyrx so I went with absylonia as I’ve been playing her regularly and I kinda know how she plays.

Adam rocked up with pGaspy and some new stuff in the guise of a upgraded mechanithrall unit.

Game was going pretty well with some duff dice from adam but some overreaching left me exposed and a last desperate assination attempt by Absy came to nought. Fun game and I’m looking forward to the new steamroller 2012 tournament pack to try and introduce some scenario play into the club games.

Still really struggle to beat cryx, but at least this game lasted more than 3 turns!

Time to look to a new caster to be mediocre with..Kallus or Bethayne is the question.

2012 – First game

Well I’m going to try and blog a lot more this year…I know that’s been said before but we shall see…

2012 will be kicking off with a game of Dystopian wars trying out the latest rules changes from Spartan games. Will be good to get the ships and aircraft out on the table again and I’m keen to see how the stream lined tiny flier rules work as i did think they were a bit fiddly in the original rules.

After that its over to hordes on Monday where I’ll be facing up to Cryx trialling the test Steamroller 2012 rules. Going to try out the death clock too so that should be fun 🙂
