Ambush by the ruins [HH]

Postby Apollyon » Tue Nov 01, 2011 2:26 pm

This battle was fought a couple of days ago in preparation for a larger battle we are planning. So i grabbed a few minifigs, some dice and the 2005 rulebook and went to my friend's place to check out his collection. Turns out he has a huge box full of pirate and old (=no peaches) Star Wars stuff as well as a suitcase full of 80ies Lego. This time we settled on a small skirmish to get more familir with the rules. Ill preparation means we only had a mobile phone to take pictures, so sorry about the quality. The amount of bloodshed was decent though.
The story you ask? Well, there is this unbearably handsome do-gooder hero who really deserved a lesson or so my orks decided:

Image

The battlefield. A couple of baseplates and some medieval ruins.

Image

The good guys. Their hero is mounted.

Image

My orks. The one with the bat helmet is the hero.

Image

Taking positions.

Image

Yours truly taking some notes.

Image

A view towards my forces.

Image

Orks advancing.

Image

There was only movement in the first two turns.

Image

My hero appears behind enemy lines!

Image

The following exchange of blows causes the first casualities.

Image

Good hero and pals kill some orks on the other side.

Image

Brooding on what to do next...

Image

Things did not look well on my right flank.

Image

At least my hero was on a killing spree finishing off more Robin Hood look-a-likes.

Image

One of the few sharp pics we took

Image

The orkish assassing cunningly climbed the ruins.

Image

While their hero killed everyting off downstairs.

Image

Eventually the good hero was unhorsed.

Image

His horse ran off to eat some flowers!

Image

The heroes getting closer to each other.

Image

The good guy has the nerves to summon an earthquake somehow!

Image

One assassin survives while the heroes remain locked in mortal combat.

Image

In the end, evil emerges victorious!

Image

Overview of most of the bloodshed.

Fin.

Gameplay: A real report, and it was extremely close and well done. Great job, you get a 5!
Photography: Cell phone cameras suck, which is a real shame. I'm giving a 2 for that.
Violence: Close combat, trans-red, and few survivors. What more could you want? 5
Writing: Not much of a story, and the descriptions were bland. 2
Overall Appeal: I think that overall, this was a great report! I can't say much, other than it must have been real fun to play.
Overall Score: 4/5 (Average of all scores, rounded)
