Dark Elf Crossbowmen lining up behind a hedgerow, waiting for the Dark Portals to open
The Dark Riders charge forward as to shield the Witch Elves and Cauldron from the charge of the Daemonettes, and in the process, pay the highest sacrifice in the service of Khaine.
The sight of their blood fuels the bezerk frenzy of the Hag and her followers, who then fail to charge into contact with the Horrors that were the closest unit to them.
While the Nurgle Herald and his followers languish, like the DE Black Guar,d on the sideline, both units only arriving in the 2nd move of either side
Daemon Dogs of Khorne intervene to protect their Bloodletter masters from yet another volley of 66 shots of Dark Elf hatred, now at boiling point, after their previous magic phase and shooting had been nullified by Amintok's net.
The Bloodletter herald, and the Nurgle Unit rapidly approach, while the Daemon Prince hungrily eyes the flank of the unit of Blackguard that have descended on the Fiend, who had just dispatched their Repeater Bolt-thrower
Kouran's presence spurs the Elite Blackguard to even greater atrocities, and the Fiend stands no chance...
The fearless Elves hack at the tsunami of daemons descending at them
Only to be whittled away one by one
Leaving only 2 models:
The standard bearer (who is probably more afraid of Kouran than the horde of daemons), and "his nibs", Kouran of the Tower, both alas, no more...
Leaving the Bloodletters and Daemon Prince to make mincemeat of the crossbowmen.
The High Sorceress survives, only to flee, caught in the pursuit, and her pointy skull added to the pile of offerings to the blood god.
Meanwhile the Witches and Dreadlord had slashed and poisoned their way through a unit of Horrors of Tzeench, only to be led into a trap by that over-friendly and boisterous puppy, the Beast of nurgle, who just had to be charged due to their bezerk frenzy.
A well deserved victory to Sam's Daemons of Fluff, after a four-hour long battle!
Great Games night last night (again) How I love this hobby...
Sam and Herman went toe-to-toe with Old School Chaos Daemons vs Dark Elves( Modified Storm of Magic List), Hamish and Nick having 2 games in the evening, first Skaven on Greenskins, then Chaos on Greenskins. (Was this the first outing for Hamish's Skaven Army)
40K had plenty of games going, as did role play, and the WW2 players were clearly at it too. Noticed a very innovative rail gun on the table which was deserted by the time I arrived.
We've had a call for battle reports. I'll do one on my game with Sam, I'm sure he'll do one from his perspective. How about the other guys?
We had a great swop meet yesterday. Most of us sold some of our stuff, many discovered a few gems, added to our inventories, expanded our armies. There was something for everyone: Warhammer Fantasy, 40K, FoW, 1/72 and 1/25th, 15mm Ancients, even a few Grenadier Minis were seen too.
