4000pts of Warhammer goodness x4 over 2 days = a weekend well spent wargaming. My list was reasonably random and can be read here.
GAME ONE vs Hagen Lizards
Well no. Thankfully the other unit of terradons failed their charge, but my Reiksguard knights who were clearing out a flank found themselves in a spot of bother + a scarvet thought he would pin the Demis
We run out of time after 4 turns so we call it. Result: 15-5 win!
GAME 2 vs Ray's Dark Elves
Nothing too scary in this list...only Morathi and Hellebron in horde of witch elves + a hag BSB on a cauldron + horde of Executioners with frenzy hag + other stuff.
GAME 3 vs Jeff's OnG
Right day 2 and I draw Green Dwarfs. OR Jeff was looking for tournament points and I was a good match up for him :P
So once again armour vs Green Dwarf = Green Dwarf wins 5-15. Well played and as much fun as getting artilleried/manglered/fanaticed/trolled/and footed can be :P
GAME 4 vs James' WoC
Righty - Archaon and Throgg have teamed up to smash face!
None of this deployment nonsense lets get right into it. Stank into Dragon Ogres
Mountain Chimera FTW and I get the overrun into a demonic mounted Exalted Hero + I've found a good use for my Demis - Proxying Mountain Chimeras!
The unit champ takes Archaon to the face (kinky) while the Halberds (oh yeah, and Mountain Chimera) go Nato on the unit
Snakes eyes needed and Archaon, the Lord of the Chaos wastes, the greatest threat the Empire has ever known is run down by some puny Halberds...and to top it off the Great Swords get into Throgg
5+ ward, re-roll to hit, re-roll to wound (flaming attacks dispelled) = only 1 troll left standing and is run down to finish the game off.
Result: 15-5 win to the Empire. Karl Franz, bus and BSB running off was a huge loss (like 1000pts kinda loss) so good to be able to pull the points back thanks to a certain Mountain Chimera! I might actually have to get the model now in celebration!
Overall I came in the middle. Though being a fun event it doesnt really matter where you come (unless you win of course!).
Ruination was a fantastic event. It has inspired me to play more "big" games. I especially loved the complexity of not always having BSB/General bubble where you need it. With so many units on a big table = you cannot engineer the single important combat you can at 2400pts.
Unit of the Event: Great Swords - as usual when I take them. Never died, never lost a combat, a solid 2nd hit unit to have in reserve.
MVP: Amber Mage is clear winner here. Karl Franz in close second, but ultimately let down by fluffing vs Throgg.
Tomorrow I have a game vs Alex - Demons on Dragon Heavy High Elves. I'll take some pics for a report.
