Pikes are still 'always strike first'? Of course, though I had forgotten (or thought somehow the new rules killed ASF in pikes) I am very glad to have had my muddled brain put right before my big game tomorrow.

But ... my foe will be HE? So who will strike first (is it a dice off?) and does my ASF cancel his, and thus stop his re-rolls??

[Edit - found the BRB and yeah, my guesses where correct. Strike simultaneously and no re-roll].

Photobucket has now re-destroyed my pictures, so the first half of my collected works thread is no longer working again. To see my website version of the campaign thread, with fully functioning pictures, please go to https://bigsmallworlds.com/

I think rufus needs to gain a couple of pounds....so he should join the next Eurobash and get stuffed by Annīs great food.

You're really into some great battle reports these day Rufus!

I'm positively jealous.

I am not sure if the throne of vines prevents miscasts on other mages.

Thanks, but I did make a lot of bad decisions. It doesn't help that you get no victory points for a unit you have killed all but two of.

That's right.

And, scarier still, shirtless.

As I will be at the next Eurobash...

Thanks! There might not be another one for a while though.

I know, but I literally can't.

You're still playing more battles that are more awesome then mine!

It's true, he can't. I've seen Rufus eat and he enjoys his meals but he hasn't gained a pound over the years judging from the pictures!

Maybe if we put him on a diet of lard with only gravy to drink, though I'm not sure even that would help.... :unsure:

The only big mistake was the Transformation of Kadon mishap.

No, it really wouldn't. It's quite annoying.

If I'd rolled up fewer dice for that magic phase, you might not have been able to dispel it. I was still an idiot though.

Finlay looks much happier than I do in pictures.


Also, it turns out that warmachines always fail initiative tests. So the cockatrice's death gaze always kills them automatically. Though it did anyway.

No, they auto-fail all tests apart from toughness and leadership.

Cover your eyes, mortar: it's a cockatrice! Oh, you can't...

It won't catch a cold though, because it can do toughness tests.

so dwellers below auto kills artillery but plague doesn't.
How does that make sense?

I only used plague as its the only spell which forces toughness tests or die, off the top of my head.
There are probably others though.

It just seems odd that they make them fail some, but not others.

It is a bit odd. But I suppose they thought it would be wrong to auto-fail toughness tests when the machine has toughness seven.

I don't care that you two look like you haven't eaten anything for three years, or that Finlay has botox in his face making him unable to stop smiling, these are hands down the most entertaining battle reports ever.

It feels like I am reading Conan the Comic all over again!

Hats off to rufus I say!  :::cheers:::
