Another game of Warhammer Underworlds, @yayKM took the Gorechosen of Dromm again and after last game I realised that horde warbands really don't work against the Gorechosen so I went for the undead majesty of the vampires of the Crimson Court.
It wasn't looking great for the vampires at the end of Turn 2, but a couple of lucky rolls on my part meant the game ended up with none of my vampires dead, all three of the Gorechosen wiped off the board, and I ended up winning 14-8.
@yayKM and I played our first 1v1 game of Warhammer Underworlds in quite a while this afternoon, @yayKM with the Gorechosen of Dromm versus my Exiled Dead!
It started out well for the Exiled Dead in the first turn, I killed The Gorehulk and was up 3-0 glory, but it absolutely fell apart after that even despite some very lucky rolling on my part. I scored _zero_ more glory until I killed Herax in the second-last activation of the whole game, and scored one objective worth one single glory at the very end of the game. There were other objectives I might have been able to score, but @yayKM managed to kill the exact person in the exact spot that I needed them to be in in order to score them. >_< The final score was 11-5, oof.
We went over to @[email protected]'s this afternoon to introduce him to Warhammer Underworlds! He played Morgok's Krushas, @yayKM had the Gorechosen of Dromm, and I played Skittershank's Clawpack, which in retrospect was a terrible choice because the Clawpack inspire by killing enemy leaders, and both the enemy leaders had 5 wounds. I was also extremely let down by multiple poor rolls, and @[email protected] ended up winning at 17-15-5. Definitely keen for another game soon, but I'll definitely NOT be taking the Clawpack again against those two warbands. 😛
One of my little Skaven minions got HORRIBLY ganged up on by all three of the Krushas, he weathered two of their attacks but sadly couldn't make the final one and ended up getting extremely squished.
We played some more Warhammer Underworlds tonight, my sneaky tricksy Skaven versus @yayKM's filthy goatmen. I ended up winning 11-8 but MAN was it tight right up until my very last activation of the whole game. The attacks I made in my second last and last activations were absolutely critical, because had I flubbed them — or had @yayKM successfully defended — she would have won 8-5 instead. Fully SIX glory came from killing her leader (two for killing him because he was a Large fighter, and another four from three different objectives)!
First game of Warhammer Underworlds in a while, and my first outing with the Exiled Dead! @yayKM won 9-7 with Grashrak's Despoilers, and I realised I was playing a couple of things wrong and also misread one of my objectives.
It was a lot of fun though, and the shenanigans with Exiled Dead are fantastic.
Mid-week gaming this week was Chaos vs. Chaos in Warhammer Underworlds: the Gorechosen of Dromm against Khagra's Ravagers!
It ended up being a draw at 10-10, but I was extremely happy with that because JESUS CHRIST @[email protected]'s rolling was on FIRE. I think he saved against every single attack I made for the like the first turn and a half with the exception of one initial wallop from the Gorehulk, but the most ridiculous was me rolling two dice on attack and rolling two crits, and to avoid Khagra dying he needed to roll two crits on defence ...which he pulled off.
I guess it makes up for the absolute wholloping I gave him last time (https://virtualwolf.org/media/posts/2302). 😅
First game of Warhammer Underworlds with the new Gnarlwood rules, Ironsoul's Condemnors vs. the Shadeborn!
I used Battle Mallet's suggested Nemesis deck (https://www.battle-mallet.com/nemesis-decks/) for the Condemnors because it turned out the one I had put together a while back sucked, and it was very fun, but ended up very one-sided, oops. It was partially due to some lucky rolling on my part, but we called it half-way through the second turn out of three total because I'd wiped out @yayKM's warband entirely and the score was already 9-5. Fighter of the match goes to Brodus Blightblade who single-handedly killed two of the four enemy warriors outright (the first one in the first activation of turn one) and did two out of three damage to a third one that allowed me to ping that third one for an extra one damage to kill him.
I really like the new rule changes for activations specifically, and the Nemesis format is great.
First game of Warhammer Underworlds in a little while, the vampires of the Crimson Court vs. sneaky aelves of the Shadeborn. It was a very low-scoring game, I won with the Court 9-7 but on THREE separate occasions @yayKM needed to roll a critical success (essentially rolling a 6 on one single D6) or one of her characters would die, and she managed it all three times.
I took Khorne's finest for a spin tonight, and while they ended up winning 14-5 (and are quite fun to play, to boot!), at the start of the last round it really could have gone either way. My leader had one single wound left and I had several things that relied on him being alive. 😬
Mid-week gaming this week was a FOUR-player game of Warhammer Underworlds! Unsurprisingly we only got through one round, but one of the players hadn't even played before. I managed to eke out a win on 8 glory, and Kristina came back from nowhere to finish on 7.
