Yeah I did not expect you to lose this one either. :)

Yes, I would be up for that challenge if you indeed decide to offer me that chance! :)

Excellent! I am having my first "Real Life" game this Monday (i.e. finally with real miniatures and not on UB, nothing wrong with UB itself, just missed playing with the models :)) and I will aim to finish the report by Easter.

Cheers!

You could post the lists and scenario now so that I have to wait longer to see whether I was right or not. :wink:

Ah, I'm going to say that Elves won this one. The Herd army looks to be suffering from putting too much of its points into characters and doesn't have proper anvils, just hammers and more hammers. I would've taken a horde of those unwavering berserkers and not picked up anything on a chariot.

But of course, if the dice decided to finally go totally bonkers on you, then I might accept a loss this time. :)

But you did notice that the scenario is Invade? Meaning that these expensive characters might actually be good things to have? :)

Ok, here is the link to the full report:

D'oh, neither side lost nor won. I sure did not see that coming, just like I couldn't guess that you'd fail at stopping all the expensive enemy characters. Anyways, I'm glad that you guys had a great and even game.

Well, Mr. Nibbles, I think you can do better so I am a bit disappointed with very vague predictions and quite short comments after :-P

Yeah, never split your cavalry away from your infantry when fighting against Elves. They'll just pounce on the infantry and wipe them out with combined charges which is what happened in this battle.

Elves are so good at combining charges since they can even use cavalry/infantry combinations for this, safely from beyond the reach of the enemy.

Their ranged prowess further increases the challenge, but I have seen Elves losing too.

I think you are still overestimating the impact of the longer charge distance. Yes, it is very good to have but the fact you can potentially attack first is not going to be enough to win you games alone.

No, it won't indeed win all your games for you, attacks can fail too and even when they don't, the enemy might not break when you excpected them to and so even an elite force can get trapped in by rabble and lose.

It happened to me in my previous game(Varangur vs the Herd), and I had every advantage when committing to the charges! Double 1's are nasty when you need to rout the enemy in order to turn towards incoming enemy flankers. :)

I haven't yet lost with my Elves though, they've been lucky basterds.

I see, this makes Goblins a Speed 6 army then seeing as you lost, right? :mrgreen:

Just kidding of course, I did read the report and the game ended too early for you to win.

Some of the bigger Goblins are Speed 6! They are called Trolls :) And the biggest Goblins are even Speed7! These are the Giants! :mrgreen:

Yeah, these sort of units are a must have, they break up the monotone Speed levels in the army and open up a whole different level of tactics. These Trolls and Giants aren't stupid & RNG either.

Yeah, haven't read the report yet but by the looks of that AD list I guess you could have even lost the game. Two Dragons, a large unit of emmentals and two units of pretty monstrous cavalry sounds like a typical tournament steam roller. :)

But despite that, it still has 60 models of Dwarf infantry which makes it look a lot more balanced than equivalent lists of Warhammer would have been, where this much cheese took ALL of the points.

I wouldn't want to face that list though unless my own KoW army was on the same level. Next week my Dwarfs are marching to the battlefields of my own gaming club, I'll make a report of how that goes. At least there won't be any Dragons there...
