What a busy few weeks it has been! I have let myself down on my blog post routine, but it isn’t as though I have been neglecting my Warhammer which is a good sign as I am a shocker for getting myself caught up in other things.
Since my last post I have managed to put the first few layers on 10 of my Dryads and 5 of my Tree Revenants.
I’ve built 5 more Tree Revenants and purchased another box of Kurnoth Hunters (to be made with Scythes) and a box of Saurus Guard for my Seraphon.
No big deal but I also… PLAYED A GAME WITH SOMEONE NEW!!!!
I decided to put myself out there and offer a game on our community Facebook page and you know what? Instant reply. Followed by instant nerves and instant realization that most of my models were unpainted – hence the reason I scrambled to make some of my models at least presentable.
Our Warhammer store’s Manager decided our game would be the start of a new Age of Sigmar Ladder campaign – how perfect was that!? So we agreed to a 1000 point game and rolled the “Take and Hold” battleplan. That meant two objectives on either side, with major victory requiring 5 or more models at each objective and no enemy models within 6″. Otherwise, a minor victory based on points values destroyed.
Now be it nerves or plain ignorance I did not read this well at all, in fact one could assume I forgot every rule under the sun also with my fumbly attempt at playing. However, I didn’t do too bad – did either player win a Major Victory? No. Neither of us actually read the battle-plan fully, so let’s just say it was a messy first game. We didn’t even read the part about Minor Victories… absolute rookies. However, if we had listened (or read?) I would have surely won a minor victory so I’m happy about that.
Though the result of the game was a little bit iffy the game itself was loads of fun, my opponent was ridiculously lovely, had a great sense of humor and was very patient with my constant need to pick up my book to check everything. Now I can’t wait to challenge someone else!
My next objectives are;
- To base my mostly completed models. I have ordered some basing materials which should be here in the next day or two.
- To paint more models.
- To build my Spirit of Durthu and Kurnoth Hunters.
- To play more games!
