I recently had the great fortune of getting in two games of my current favourite game Age of Sigmar. Both games were at vanguard level.
We play a very laid back, but still competitive style... competitive only meaning that we do use points and objectives and try to follow the rules. It does not mean that we min/max and only play tournament scenarios.
For the games I fielded my new nurgle army. With the following:
Madame Gangrene (great unclean one, general)
2x 10 plaguebearers (pbs)
3 plague drones
I actually failed to use any wargear or traits so haven't listed those.
My partner in crime, Uncle Jonas of deathworldadventures.blogspot.com is a stout defender of the world that was and what could be more fitting than fielding an old school Dwarf... oh sorry, Duardin army.
Uncle Jonas had:
The White Dwarf (Warden King, general)
First game was generated with Open War cards. We got Kingslayer, narrow edge deployment and I was allowed to ambush.
Basically we had to take out as many wounds as possible, doubling the score if the enemy general is killed.
My drones were very ineffective and took a heavy toll to quarrellers and cannon. The White Dwarf also killed them a lot.
I forgot more or less everything that wasn't explicitly stated on my scrolls... except for my command ability, which was stated, but I still forgot.
After that we had a second game.
Scenario: battle of the pass
This time we played the scenario straight out of G.H.B.2017. 4 objectives are laid out, with one in each end zone and two in the middle along the centre line.
This time I tried to have a big think on what to do... and not forget command abilities, gadgets and spells.
I chose to deploy with a heavy leaning to one side and the nurglings in hiding. I tried to go for setting up the gnarlmaw on the objective in the Disposssed territory but failed to win the roll off and thus it ended up in my own territory.
Uncle Jonas had placed his quarrellers closest and it would be possible to reach them in turn two with a bit of luck. I had a lucky charge roll and reached them without problems.
On the other flank a unit of 10 pbs with a poxbringer as support secured the other centre objective and fought off some duardin. Being forced to charge the Duardin lost the shield wall and were easily cut down.
All in all a thoroughly enjoyable day in good company.
I have ordered side fyreslayers, some AoS, and shadespire so there will be more of this coming to the blog.
