The moving begins... 9th of August 2013

Good evening! (or morning or afternoon depending on when you're reading this)

Last Friday was a bit light on actual gaming due to a mass move of gaming terrain.

As of the 23rd of August, EWA will be moving to the Ballarat Table Tennis Centre over in Dowling St, Wendouree due to the government doing some election thingo soon and the current hall is being annexed.

Terry and a couple of pieces of scenery.

So there wasn't a lot of gaming going on but i did manage to have captured a snippet of a WHFB 2500 pt game between my Lizardmen and Shamps' Bretonnians:

Just after the turning point...

what looks to be a very in-depth, complex discussion regarding a lone jungle swarm base.
This was a game to test my new lizardmen book and the new additions to it's roster. Shamps was testing Questing Knights which he hasn't used in a Bret army before.

As the caption to the middle picture states, turn 3 was a deciding factor in this game. Originally, Shamps would have destroyed my block of saurus warriors with a double charge of knights, then overrun into a poorly placed Slann, almost guaranteeing a victory. Seeing as neither of us had at that point, used any of the units we brought specifically for this game, there wasn't much point in ending things there.

So both agreed to play out in an alternate direction. Instead of my saurus warriors breaking, fleeing, getting run down, my losing the game, we'll play as if my saurus made the snake eyes needed to hold their ground and keep fighting.

In the end, my Troglodon (new unit) didn't do much but roar once helping my saurus fight a little better, his Questing Knights removed from the game: a swarm, a Bastiladon (another new unit) and a skink cohort with priest. Sadly they receiving a fatal flank charge for it's troubles at which point we called it game.

An interesting match with lessons learned, discussions discussed and enjoyment had.

In next weeks episode.. I dunno, I haven't thought that far ahead. Stay tuned I guess :p

Cheers- Ben R
