More Oldhammer and another GLOGG meet.
Just a quick one as a sign of life as work involves me working 15 hour days at the moment.
Couple of weeks ago I met up with some GLOGGers and this is what we did. . . . . .
There has been two (?) weeks of work since the game and we had an incident which left things a bit flat but I will comment on the bits I remember and the photos look epic
Keep an eye out for the chaos Familiars.
Table is set and looks good to go
Chico brings a Cult of the possessed to the party!
I bring 1000 gold coins worth of Reikland mercenaries to the party.
Paul plays my Dwarf treasure hunters.
I bunker my archers in the store house
My wizard and Ogre run forward to form a road bump
Chico and I play hide and seek round the tower. Paul can't seem to miss with his crossbows!
Chico's archers fail to be as effective.
One of my archers takes a tumble off the roof and then I forget he's there for about four turns!
In order to stop himself being skewered by Paul's crossbow men Chico lines up a charge on yours truly.
Chico's archers continue to advance into a decimating rain of bolts from Paul.
The rest of his Dwarves advance under the cover of his Thunderers.
Chico and I mix it up.
Much hacking and slashing follows.
The big boys meet.
Paul continues to advance towards the tear up.
"Only a six will pull off that shot Paul!"
"Only another sx will pull off that shot Paul!"
Much hacking and slashing followed between Chico and I.
Chico fails a bottle test which causes quite a debate about what upgrades you are allowed in a one off 1000GC game.
Unfortunately we could not resolve the issue there and then. . . . Shame.
With barely enough time to catch their breath the Reiklanders are set upon by the advancing Dwarves!
Paul forms a conga line. If only I had a Blunderbuss!
A couple of good rolls see me dispatch the Engineer and a Clansman but this is only going to end badly for me.
Here comes the pain!
Fist fights break out all round the tower.
I decide to try to break the deadlock by storming the Thunderers in the gate house. At this point I notice the archer I had left for dead in turn two!
My forces are massacred in the centre which leaves me needing a bottle test.
Which I failed with room to spare!
Want to thank Paul and Chico for making the trip down. Shame it all went a bit flat at the end. Hopefully we can get the rule dispute finally verified just so we do not have something like this happen again.
No GLOGG for a couple of months due to holidays and BOYL but hopefully we will all meet up again soon for some Oldhammer goodness in September.
