We played a 1600pt game of Night Goblins vs Chaos Warriors to see who would be the baddest badass of them all. I took my painted stuff, comprising of:
Daemon Prince Ommadon
Exalted Hero BSB on Daemonic steed Astaroth
Lv2 Nugle Mage Tormentor
20 Chaos Warriors of Nurgle with additional handweapons and shields.
8 Chaos Trolls (no Throgg, but I love the model so used him anyway)
2 lots of 5 warhounds.
My friend had:
50 or 60 Night Goblins with a bunch of big bosses in there with Great Weapons
20 Night Goblin archers (I think), with the Goblin General, BSB and shaman.
4 Spear Chukkas
2 Rock Lobba's
1 Doom Diver
3 Goblin Chariots
and 2 Mangler Squigs
We rolled Dawn Attack for the scenario, which made our units deploy randomly on the field. So no, I didn't deliberately deploy my Daemon Prince in front of all his artillery, the dice gods made it that way!
Night Goblin deployment. My warhounds vanguard up to try and deal with those manglers.
Cast a spell on the Trolls. One of the few times I did. I'm sure whatever it was, it was a waste of time ;).
Chaos turn 3. Trolls charge in. Fanatics got killed by the sinister statue in the middle of the table, however its malign gaze does nothing but make the Trolls angry.
It was an enjoyable game, with the usual round of randomness going on. It was unlucky that the Daemon Prince got taken out by turn two, but I still had 2 more hard combat units so at least they managed to do their job and smack some goblins about.
So it was another win for Chaos, though I can't help thinking it was rather close in the end.
Since it was a quick game, we decided to have another 1000pt game. No idea the amylists, but all i could fit in was a hero, and a little small units.
My force. It look alot, but there is nothing hard there (coming from the Chaos player).
Tried to deal with the Mangler, but in the end was unable to.
And there we have it! A couple of good games! Got some more we did as well that I'll put up at some stage using the new Dwarf book.
