Game - 1
My first game would be vs Wayne Turner the mission would be Clash of warlords He was also using Vikings
|The 2 War bands ready for combat|
|My Hirdmen and Beserkers are close by to protect my warlord|
|My Hirdmen and a group of warriors clash and wipe each other out after my warriors were pushed back from their assault.|
|The other flank our warriors readied them selves for the incoming melee.|
|My 6 warriors and my warlord charged Wayne's warlord and struck him down. our game was over in about 3 turn. And with Wayne's warlord dead the win went to me I was off to a good start.|
Game - 2
My second game was vs Mark Stanton 2 of my 3 games prior to Nicon were vs Mark so we both knew what each other were using and how we where going to play them. Mark was using the Anglo-Danish and the Mission was called the Challenge. This Mission wouldn't suit Marks Warlord as he was using a Religious adviser who wasn't very good in combat.
|The Warlords faced off in the center of the table and after the first combat Mark was down 4 wounds to 1 i think it was.|
|Mark's warlord quickly retreated back into the hut with some of his warriors. I stood out side taunting him lol|
|Mark's abilities to fatigue me was starting to build up on me. So I moved as many troops around my warlord as possible to protect him.|
|My Beserkers charged Mark's warriors and as expected they wiped each other out.|
|I moved in for another go at killing the Religious adviser only to be pushed back again but not before causing more wounds.|
Game - 3
Game 3 was vs Alan ''Sorry I didn't get your last name'' and we would be playing Battle of the Ford This was a mission I had played so i know what to expect Alan was playing Norse Gaels a Viking sub faction. Who are all about challenging the opponent to take a penalty of some sort or if you fight it and win you stop it but if you lose the challenge it hurts.
|I got the first turn and it was a mad dash across the river to force my way through.|
|I killed one squad of warriors and some levies for the cost of my berserkers and some warriors|
|With the warriors that where across the river being exhausted they soon feel but took some warriors with them.|
|The other end off the river was just a lot of failed assaults but i soon got through although Alan had troops moving to help.|
|Alan Charged his warlord across the river and killed mine but my warriors took exception to this and killed him then charged over the river.|
Game - 4
Game 4 was called feast of crows which is a multi-player game for my then 2 players was drew random names from a hat to see what 3 people would be on each table. I would be facing Alan with his Norse Gaels and Mark with his Anglo-Danish. The objective was to get the most kill points.
|We setup in a triangular fashion to be as even apart as possible.|
|As I split my forces I started to get picked off not a good start.|
|Alan's spearmen in the building where attacking my men in the open and no matter what i did I couldn't stop them.|
|Marks forces slowly wore me down also and I was soon eliminated from the game.|
So a great first day well above my expectations now after a good days gaming we where after some much needed rest as Mark, Andrew and my self had been up since 12am to travel up to Thames. Day 2 to follow in the next post.
