The small village of Little Tugwaddle sits between the rivers Tug and Waddle. It's quiet green fields perfect pickings for the dark creatures that lurk beyond the forest.
Sir Roderick and his retinue. Loyal men all!
Korgoth the Slayer. Old adventuring buddy of Roderick. Ferocious barbarians form the hills.
Lord Aelaroth from the forest. It is he who alerted Roderick to the impeding threat. Rangers all.
Finally, Jarl Borg, armed to the teeth from the Murican Hills. Steady dwarves for a fight.
The Bad guys:
Muldar Gravestone and his Soulless Undead horde...
Bill and the Bugbears boys. Large beasts, for sure.
Bloodthirsty Orcs lead by Blarg the Seer.
The Foul Lord Valdamyr and his Fearless Chaos brethren.
Seven players. The Good guys got Renown for protecting the village, while the Baddies got points for burning, killing and looting.
Sir Roderick gallantly charges across the bridge. "I'm here to save you, lowly peasants!"
"I say, what's all the ruckus about. Get back to toiling!"
The Elves never seemed to make it past the "Cabbage Pack of Death". Many would fall. Lord Aelaroth must of forgot his folk could ignore terrain, and became mired in a melee they were doomed to lose.
Sir Roderick, helpless, fell to the blows of Skeleton halberds (technically he ran off). Leaderless his men died under black bolts from undead archers.
Dwarven marksmanship (Marksdwarfship?) left much to be desired. Jarl Borg himself dead from a cloud of goblins grunts.
Meanwhile, the Barbarians showed so much promise. On paper they would almost always kill whatever they hit. The problem was the hitting, which they almost never did. Soon the village was ablaze. Corpses were raised to join the Undead legions while no one wants to know what happened to the villagers under the Chaos horde.
Great game. The poor good guys had truly abysmal die rolling. It just wasn't their day. Some nice moments in the game. We used the "Gruesome Kill" rule where any wound result of 10+ means any friends with 6" of the victim take a Shock marker. And to speed things up, any miniature with MORE shock than remaining wounds retreats.
Other than that, no real changes to rules people already had. Retinues were built like any time period. The follow up battle will see if Our Heroes can stop the evil tide.
