Another night of @[email protected] over for Warhammer Underworlds and dinner and getting Beanie used to having people over, and it was a smashing success. It only took Beanie maybe 15 minutes to calm himself down (we gave him the same amount of calming medicine as last time), and have booked in another night for the same again, so really interested to see how that goes.

We got some new medicine for Beanie to give him before someone comes over, to hopefully stop him freaking out and barking the whole time. Wobin came over for dinner and a couple of games of Warhammer Underworlds, and I'm delighted to report that the medicine worked a treat! Beanie did his usual barking to start with, but he was able to calm down afterwards and we had a lovely quiet evening! We're going to schedule some more games and visits from Wobin and hopefully get Beanie used to people again, and fingers crossed can taper off the medicine so we can have people over to our house like we used to be able to without needing to give Beanie anything at all. 🤞🏻

Played our first game of Warhammer Underworlds with the new terrain! I love it, it adds so much visual interest to the board. (I gave up on the murder-ladies for the moment, I need to tweak the deck a bit, and went back to the Dread Pageant. Ended up winning 15-8!).

It was spooky ladies versus murder ladies tonight! Unfortunately the murder ladies are now two losses out of two games played. Partially my fault again, they require a lot more careful play than some of the other warbands, and I screwed up placing the objective tokens. Kristina had some very tricksy plays too though, which screwed me over at a couple of points!

Another game of Warhammer Underworlds tonight! I played my murder-ladies for the first time (Morgwaeth's Blade-coven) and sadly didn't win. I can definitely see the potential though, and there were some very unlucky dice rolls at a few critical points. They're pretty sneaky as befits aelves, keen to play a few more games with them.

Went over to a friend's place for a three-player game of Kill Team! It was Death Watch versus Chaos daemons versus my Astra Militarum. Very happy with how my guardsmen performed, though I didn't win. We called it after the fourth round, and the Death Watch won despite having only one model left. If we'd gone another round, though, the daemons would have overrun EVERYONE and definitely won. This was definitely the best-looking board we've ever played on, terrain-wise, despite my larger pieces only being undercoated with silver. My friend has been making lots of terrain, both 3D-printed and built from scratch, and all of his was fully painted, so it really felt excellent to play on. The only thing letting us down was that the Chaos daemons were all only base-coated. :P

We played another game of Warhammer Underworlds tonight, the vile Wurmspat versus Myari's Purifiers. I was coming first right up until the very last end phase, then Kristina scored two objectives to put her ahead by ONE glory, and she'd killed one of my fighters thus rendering six additional glory out of reach for me! I'm not sure how I feel about the Wurmspat's current deck, I think I want to make it a bit more mobile and combat-focused.

We went over to a friend's place today and played our first game of four-player Warhammer Underworlds! The two friends who'd never played it before ended up coming first and second, haha. I played the Wurmspat for the first time and lost horribly, the dice gods SHAT on me, both for rolling my own dice and having my successful attacks all defended against. Still had a lot of fun though!

More Warhammer Underworlds tonight, this time the two warbands from Direchasm, and Kristina won! Funnily enough, though, while the miniatures are fantastic, neither of us were particularly enthused by the actual play style of the warbands themselves, heh. I like casting spells (the Dread Pagent has none) and Kristina likes stabbing things from close range (the Purifiers are too delicate).

Kristina and I played Warhammer Underworlds tonight, and Beanie again decided he need to come up and help. I played The Dread Pageant for the first time, they're interesting! I miss the lack of magic-casting though. I managed to win by one single point, and it was purely luck... if Kristina HADN'T killed Glissete in the very last activation, it would have been a draw!
