    Thanks!

    Holy smokes... I missed that... Damn Goblin tarpit.... Well, I would have caused a lot more damage if all my Saurus attacks were at 3's to hit due to failing Fear test so I definitely missed out on that one at least.

    Thanks!

    It's mine :D It's a proper, fold-out gaming table (6' by 4') with a gaming mat on it. It feels like a mousepad and is also 6' by 4' so fits the table nicely and does wonders for the ambience.

    I've been steadily building up terrain (I can't claim to have made any of it, I'm pretty hopeless that way) and was a joy to finally have a full table of decent terrain, using the special rules no less! Made it a lot more interesting.

    Yeah. They were useful on the Giant and would have been useful on the Manglers. Otherwise, they did serve their purpose on redirecting/pulling units out of line with the Black Orcs so not a huge loss.

    I also realized that I had paid the points for two Chamo units... :( so didn't even get the full gaming out of them! And, yes, next time will definitely do another Saurus unit instead.

    Yes, it's unfortunately true that with the low WS they are lot less effective then you think on first looking them over. I think they're fine if backed up. I like the idea of fielding them seriously wide. I'll try that if I face O&G again, as they are the army most likely to go so wide themselves.

    I have reservations about the Solardon, but I may try it next time anyways since I have the model.

    Oh, my army choice could definitely be argued.

    I think I had a nice mix of good and bad luck and consider that I planned it well, even if I fluffed the first movement phase a bit by having everything cluttered up.

    I appreciate your data and insight mate. Cheers!
