Tonight Nigel, Dale, Dave and I got together for a game of Kins of war at Nigel’s. As usual Daleinski acted as Nigel’s hands while Dave and I shared command of my Easterlings.
I’ve been playing round with the list a wee but and am actually working on an Ogre army so had a brainwave- add a horde of ogres to my Easterlings.
My 2000pt list was:
3x knight regiments (1 with caterpillar)
1x sergeant reiment (needed for unlocks)
2x scout troops
1x wizard- inspiring talisman, lightning bolt, bane chant
1 x giant
2x generals on winged beasts
1x ogre horde
Nigel too had tweaked his list from the competition and took approximately:
1x spear phalanx horde- pikes and brew of str
2x rifle regiments
1x organ gun
2x footguard regiments
1x mounted scout regiment (with upgrade to piercing 1)
2x succubi regiments
A couple of wizards
A succubi character
A standard bearer
Nigel’s army was pretty static but had lots of shooting options, some interesting character choices and plenty of slid infantry with the spear phalanx horde and succubi so I wasn’t sure how the game would go. We decided to play invade.
Niel won the dice off and gave Dave and I the first turn. Dave hadn't played before but quickly picked up the game.
Turn 1 the ogres advance.
An aerial view at the end of turn 1- I redeployed my winged beast to support the centre. No shootin form me and minimal casualties from Nigel's shooting.
Turn 2- the ogres charge the succubi as does a unit of knights and the mlunted scouts also find themselves charged. I screen my flank with scouts while Dave uses the Giant + flying general combo on the far flank.
The ogres charge in while the general offers morale support/advice from nearby.
The mounted scouts are no match for the knights and crumble, leaving he succubi who had held ripe for a flank charge.
Niel's centre is crumbling and in trouble.
to protect the ogres I throw a unit of scouts at the pike horde to slow it down- giving Nigel his first points.
Knights on the far left flank are about to destroy the footguard, the orgres have charged the pike horde and the mounted sergeants the succubi hero.
