Hey y'all! Today I want to report from my first ever game of anything Warhammer that I played in public, my first games against someone who isn't my buddy @Mesandres, and my first meeting with our archenemy Skaven. And all that in one day! It started out as.... well... being guilt-tripped into taking part because the AoS community isn't particularly large in my home town and the few players that play it (including our store boss who is a really nice guy) get depressed about it now and then. So I decided to go for it, played some training games with @Mesandres on friday and we both went to the store at 11:30AM. Everyone was happy to see us! The tournament started half an hour later, six players fought for the win. The battleplan to be played all day was the new Skirmish battleplan from the Malign Portents book. It works about like this: There is a marker in the center, if you are near it at the start of your hero phase you get 1d3 points. If you kill something near it you can roll, on a 4+ you get one point. Whoever has more points at the end of round 5 wins the match, except if their whole army is gone. My warband was a Starpriest, three Terradons, and five Saurus Knights. 60 points of models in my shoe box. The first game was against my buddy, so I was relaxed since I know his army (Ironjawz) well and often managed to win. I played very aggressively while he deployed rather defensively, hoping to avoid my bombs and then countercharge or even make that foot of Gork happen with the magic reroll granted by a piece of terrain there. Throughout the game we both didn't have a lot of dice luck so it dragged along without many kills. I captured the center and by the end of round 4 I was ahead by six points, almost impossible to lose. I already pulled some forces back to avoid a wipe because that was the only way I could still lose. ...and then the dice luck came back. To my opponent. He killed my general and two other models, and a catastrophic battleshock was the result, wiping my army off the board. I was way ahead by points but still lost. It was an exciting game that really ended with the last battleshock phase in round 5. Aginor vs. World: 0-1 Next battlereport soon in this thread.
