The Siege of Graveskul

With the Swords of Power in hand Rikishi or was it Rafiki eh who cares, and Black Vasken must form a tense alliance to to defend Graveskul from the Bretonnians that would steal the secrets of Graveskul.  If you care to read some #FakeNews here is Sean's version.
What follows is a ten hour Warhammer 3rd ed. game that was one of the most enjoyable games to date. 



The chaos vortexes were nasty but added a bit of fun to the game.  We were all sitting on the edges of our seats waiting for them to hit something big! 








The vortexes never hit a critical unit, but they did hold me up for about 8 turns. 
If you notice the Coldone knights chaning formation that's not a trick of the camera.  Lopez spent about 8 turns switching from wedge to column over and over...back and forth.  It was delightful. 


Fear is so brutal in 3rd ed.  We loved it...everyone sat trying to charge Sloth and then he roared and murdered everything.
In hindsight maybe the Brets should have got the artillery forward...but you never know.  One of the guns overheated.  I think if it hadn't it would have got all the Coldone knights.
Well that became the deciding factor.  Leaving enough Coldone Knights to charge created a panic fast on the flank and resistance trickled away.

With the Bretonnians defeated the champions are able to enter Castle Graveskul...but what evil dwells in there?  Will our heroes be able to regain the Power!?!  Stay tuned for the next issue and find out.

  6. I wanted to say it was all lies, but it appears to be an accurate representation of the days events. I need to get to work on my report. Perhaps I'll get it out tonight.

  10. I was seeing it going different. The Brets defeated at the end because of fear. That's what happens when you draft poor people.
