8th ed WFB with modified army lists and campaign rules.

Though the march to the battle was long and hard ...

So, I've been playing total war: Warhammer 2, as the high elves. Starts out well enough, bit of an issue with Sartosan pirates showing up every now and then at first, but eventually I absorb all the elven factions except Yvresse (which controls the east of Ulthuan) and Avelorn (which controls the west of Ulthuan). Leaving me in control of the south, and the central ring. And Caledor, because they got uppity. After sealing a non-aggression pact with Khemri to my south, this basically means that whatever invader comes in from the east or west is basically either Avelorn's problem, or Yvresse's. So far, so good.

Next, because sitting on an objective while performing rituals is boring, I decide to take out the competition; Naggaroth, Hexoatl and clan Pestilens. I journey north-west with five or six armies and begin conquering all of Malky's lands, after a rather tiresome spell of rooting out clan Rictus. Which is where the problem started.

Because the skaven keep ambushing me. Which is a problem, because I have three armies of 16-18 units each working together. Clan Rictus has one army, of 20 units. But because the rats get to perform an ambush (ie take one of my armies and fight it without reinforcements), they kill off my armies one by one. Took me some time but I managed to beat them. Sadly the southern expedition of two armies sent to take out clan Pestilens (they had three settlements, and were at war with five factions, it seemed like an easy win) was killed off in short order. And of course, all the allies I made in the south (Tor Elasor, Lybaras) don't lift a finger trying to fight clan Pestilens, because clan Pestilens is hidden in the ruins. Of which there are three. The same amount of settlements clan Pestilens has remaining. Do the bloody math.

Anyway, abandoning the fight in the south, I focus on Naggaroth, which is now rat-free. Sure enough the Druchii are hardly a problem, And before you know it they have only three settlements remaining, which I have parked five of my armies next to. Then Morathi spawns with a truckload of units. Next turn Hellebron and Malekith do the same. These guys literally only have three settlements remaining (and not big ones, either), and somehow they're pumping out more units than me. And killing my armies while they're at it.

Ok then, what about Hexoatl? I've got three armies on them, while Teclis is fighting them from the south. I'm about to attack their capital and disrupt their ritual to boot, and what happens? Lord Mazdamundi saunters into the city, plonks down and hey, suddenly my 60 units are incapable of defeating his forty, because some of mine are wounded and most of his are terror-causing dinosaurs. He leaves the city, I besiege it again, but before I'm done building a battering ram he's back, defending the city. I wait for him to leave and attack him, he flees, then next turn he ambushes and kills one of my armies. Sigh.

Oh, and meanwhile all three factions are performing their rituals- the dark elves are doing their penultimate ritual, lizardmen and rats are about ready to do their last ritual. I'm still on the second because I felt sitting around doing nothing was boring.

Sort of getting tired of it...

@BAWTRM, I only beat you by about 24 hours! Just got to be that little bit quicker on the draw. I was worried Feanor would have posted it already.

Meanwhile Fidelis comes in here posting the scroll of FILTHY LIES! I need a great many more models, and painting the ones I have will only slow down the addictive collecting.

Ah, so you did. My internal clock was off it seems.  :biggriin:

And the scroll of FILTHY LIES indeed!
