Ev bought the starter set for Scots giving him a Warlord, 2 x Hearthguard and 2 x Warriors for his four points. I fielded my Anglo-Danes including a Warlord with Dane-axe, 1 x Heathguard with Dane-axes, 1 x Hearthguard and 2 x Warriors for my four points. As it was Ev's first bash we stuck with a simple Clash of Warlords scenario, fighting over my scratch built terrain.
The battle had a bit of a slow start and then really kicked in hard for a couple of turns. Both sides held the upper hand at various times with the God's fickle favour in evidence. Over time Ev's Scots wore my Anglo-Danes down and eventually triumphed.
We discovered during our second game that we over-powered Ev's special abilities on the battle board in part through lack of attention (entirely my fault!) and in part through an inconsistency regards cover on the QRS in the back of the book. More on that later in the week when I post the second set of pics.
Here are the pics and a few comments...
|The two forces converge|
|Scots hiding in the woods|
|Coming to blows. Note my funky custom movement stick!|
|Village life temporarily on hold|
|Come on, get stuck in!|
|Now you're talking. Forces collide|
|And both sides get hurt|
|Canny wee Scots on the flank|
|Things going badly for the Anglo-Danes at the last|
Stay tuned for another SAGA AAR later in the week, plus an update on the Necromunda Cawdor on the workbench.
