Wham bam ...

After our recent house shift (to the more rural Lincoln 'township' or village 15 minutes from Christchurch) four weeks ago, I have been craving some games. Delays in completion and correction of defects has delayed the unpacking, and the set up of the games room. However one advantage of HotT (at 24 points anyway) is that you can play a game on the dining room table (assuming you can find the cloth, rules and armies, which took a little time).

So Andy came round with his new Weird World War 1 German army, and we played two games.

The first was against my 'Lost Worlds' army.

The armies face off ...

Turn 1 I roll a 6, and decide to take the chance and bring the Ape God on early...
However .. you guessed it, next turn.. a '1' .. and the God decides not to favour the humans with his presence

Andy pushes his aerial hero across the Lost Worlds lines

And attacks the magician general form the rear
The game was over in four turns... a victory to the Germans.
Second game - I choose the forces of Chaos (Terry, notice my self control in not choosing the spiders....).

Again we face off ...

My turn 2, I roll a 6 and decide to deploy both dragons on board

Andy again pushes his aerial hero general into my rear. However the Chaos hero general attacks him - Andy wasn't expecting that

The Chaos hero general wins the combat, and  .. game over
Second game over in four turns. Well, we had a great yarn during the evening. A shame neither game developed into anything more interesting, but it doesn't matter.. we had a great evening with a whisky followed with coffee.

Definitely a case of wham bam, thank you....

Pottering with a few more Ottoman figures

Finally, I've managed those extra Ottomans for the DBR army. They are 15mm figures, the arquebus are Minifigs (courtesy of friend Jim), ...
