A new scourge that has to be defeated

 A scourge had descended upon the battlefields of the future. A scourge had taken hold, a scourge crept and crawled and scuttled, a scourge that had to be defeated. And the troops of the Imperial German Kaiser had stepped up, intent on showing that they were up to the task.

The first HotT game in a while, and Andy's Weird World War Germans were attacking my spider hordes.

My horde army consisted of:
1 x hero general
1 x behemoth
1 x spider God
10 x spider horders
2 x spider lurkers

Andy's Germans were:
1 x hero general
1 x behemoth
1 x airboat
3 x undead hordes
3 x shooters
3 x blades
(oops.. 2 points too many)


The Germans advance against the spiders, but a 6 on their second turn means the spider God arrives

On the other flank, hero general and behemoth go against hero general and behemoth


The German airboat swoops behind the spider line

Argy bargy along the line


Spider behemoth

The spider hero general attacks the airboat.. early success!

Two spider hordes come back....

The airboat is destroyed

Along the line

The God is engaged against a blade

All very untidy, and another horde returns

German hero vs spider behemoth

The horde line is being forced back by a combination of fire and combat. At about this stage the spiders roll a 1 for PIPs and the God disappears.. 
. A
The hordes clearly seen backs against the wall, multiple hordes brought back and still in contact with their stronghold

The spider hero and behemoth are also being pushed back

Serious holes in the horde line

The hordes push forward to try to get clear of their stronghold

Horde casualties seen off the 'table' waiting to come back on

A German horde is brought back on, and as it passes through some bad going it is attacked by a spider lurker.. the spider loses an flees from the battlefield

The lines lock in combat again, the spiders are sitting 11 AP casualties

One last casualty and the spiders are defeated, the world is cleansed of the scourge


What a cool game.,. not too demanding after a very hectic work week.. lots of kĊrero, a beer, and the chance to push figures... a good Friday night
