Played a nice game of whfb yesterday with tjub. We decided to for open army lists except for magic items. When playing big battles it sometimes get quite boring when you notice in turn one that the battle will probably be pretty onesided thanks to the 5 cannons or 4 daemon princes on the other side. No problem if this happens in a smaller battle but if you want some quality time I truly recommend it. We also decided to go for a simple hold three spots scenario which made use of the whole table. Another boring thing we’ve found out is when playing with a horde army against a smaller one is that the smaller deploying on one half of the board and lets the other army do the walking. Probably the last unit of the horde reaches the combat in turn 6. Not very nice!
Well, to the battle. It was actually quite fun to try the open lists style. The battle was quite even for at least 5 turns and I had the feeling of the perfect fight until I’ve got totally outbashed in the 6th 🙂 We took some pictures to share but it’s very hard to get any good overview.
