For my initial force I picked an all-human group consisting of; Magic User, Leader, Barbarian, Warrior, Elite Archer, Heavy Infantry, thief, and another Warrior. Rob had a group of Orcs with a Leader, supported by a pair of Orc Archers and some Giant Rats.
|Team Human L to R, (Front row): Magic User, Leader, Barbarian, Warrior, Elite Archer, Heavy Infantry, (Back row) Thief, and another Warrior|
|The battle at the ford begins. I rush one of my Warriors up to block a crossing Orc, and Rob counters with another Orc, I then move my other Warrior up to support.|
In the end, the Orcs' lower Quality told, and I was able to wear them down one by one, while only losing my Thief and Barbarian in the process. After Rob's Orc's dropped below 50%, causing several of the survivors to run a ways down the road, we called it a game.
|The scene near the end. With a powerful force still at my disposal, and the Orcs badly worn down, The Orc Leader calls for a retreat.|
I picked a more mixed-race adventuring party for this game, featuring: a Halfling Warrior (not a Bones figure), Halfling Wisewoman, a Dragonman (I used the Hyenaman stats), Human Warrior, Human Leader, Fire Elemental, Elf Sneak, and Elf Elite Archer. Rob used what I call his "invincible force", since I have yet to beat it in a number of games now.It consists of an assortment of human types; including a Leader, Warriors, Barbarian, Archers, and Magic user
|My team: (front row) Halfling Warrior (not a Bones figure), Halfling Wisewoman, (Back Row) a Dragonman (I used the Hyenaman stats), Human Warrior, Human Leader, Fire Elemental, Elf Sneak, and Elf Elite Archer|
|My Elite Elf Archer takes up position in the woods, as my Dragonman and Warrior rush bravely forward.|
|My Dragonman falls, as the rest of my force tries to move up to help him. In the lower left of the photo, my Elf Sneak has taken position to charge out at an opportune moment. A moment which never comes.|
Another good gaming day, and a nice victory for each of us. We both still struggle to find the correct way to use low Quality troops to advantage. Hopefully we can have a rematch soon.
