The Season of War begins...

  The Season of War has begun in earnest.  Got out first games in tonight, and for my part, I did not hold true to Sigmar's faith in me.  I failed, and hopefully I will be reforged with better results!  Heh!

  Played a really great game against a member of the Rolling Bad community (Youngblood) and his Grot/Spider army. (Arachnarok w/flinger, 2x10 Grot spider riders, Grot boss on Gigantic Spider).

  My Army was a Lord Celestant on Dracoth (lamer), 5 Protectors, 10 Liberators (hammer/shield), 5 Liberators (2 blade) and 5 Judicators (xbow).

  The rules for the scenario of Season of war were interesting, and we set an 850pt limit for our game (which we both exceeded by a few :).  We played on a 4x4 because of the size and it was great.  In the end, the warriors of Sigmar could not hold back the tide of spidery destruction and we succumbed.  The problem was the general, not the army :) 

  So, get out there and enjoy the Season of War, this is gonna be a hoot!

  Here are a couple of shots of the swag that comes with the season of war and a choice photo of the game or two.   

   Player card and wrist band...  on the back of the card you can track your painting progress, which as you will see, I have much opportunity!
   Faction pins.  Kinda nice actually
  A set of tokens to use in game.  I think they took my idea!!! :)

 10 Liberators against 10 Spiders, it was a pretty fair fight!  I ended up winning this one with 2-3 Libs left.  Of course, they re-spawned and ruined my day elsewhere :0

 10 Liberators against ... oh dear god-king, that's an... ahhhhhhhh.  Yeah, 10 Libs did not slow the Arachnarok much... Even when I rolled all hits...

He laughed and saved them all...

Still, cracking good fun!

See you in the Realms!
