A wet, rainy day down in Oamaru today. I popped around to Gordon's for a game of Kings of War vs Josh and his goblin horde. Josh is till putting his army together so used some of Gordon's figures to stand in for his goblin hordes.
Josh's army was approximately:
- 2x goblin hordes
- 2x morax regiments (allies)
- 1x mawbeast pack
- 2x mawbeast troop
- A king on a chariot
- Kuzlo and Madfall- with entrall
- A Couple of other characters- one with a boomstick
I ran my Easterlings and think I've settled on my final list. I'd swapped the bow regiment and mounted hereo for a second giant. So i was outnumbered 3:2 in giants!
- 3x knight regiments
- 2x mounted scout troops
- 1x shield wall horde with hammer of measured strength
- 2x giants
- 1x general on a fell beast
- Wizard with boomstick
I'ds not played this one before. We each placed 3 objective markers on the opponents side of the board and there as a central one. At the end of each of your turn from turn 2 onwards you can claim the victory makers you placed on the other side of the table.
I'd not played goblins (and allies before) so was a bit unsure what to expect. I planned to try to avoid the giants and Morax units as long as possble. I'd placed two of my markers on the right hand side of the table, one on the left.
I hoped to beat the goblins on one flank or the other and use my superoir mobility ot exploit openings. I wanted my shieldwall to hold the centre as long as possible and try to win the game on the flanks.
Result: 4-2 to the Easterlings.
