Dude, when that game began I still had hair. You used the tried and tested method of "wait till your opponent dies of old age, then assume a victory pose".
 :ph34r:

As for the rats: I think half the roster of today's Skaven didn't exist in the 6th edition book, right? I started playing them in 7th when they got new models. Always liked the concept, hated the old monkey rat men.

Yeah not all "oldies" are "goldies" unfortunately. Although I did like the old metal plague monks more then their plastic counterparts.

Not the best strategy in Midaski's case.... although he has lived longer than the rest of us, so he might be better at it....

So, this confirms a 2019 edition of the Eurobash and also that it theme will be 6th edition: "Back to the goldies".

Of course I got the inference - cannon fodder is always needed, but I actually cannot remember whether I was playing his rats or his chaos, it was so long ago.
You didn't think our German friend would get it - I mean it's well known they don't understand any clever humour.  :closed-eyes:

It was the year I went undefeated all weekend,  :engel: and we were in the first HQ venue.

Probably got a pic somewhere.

Slow play is seriously looked down upon these days. Fetch the chess clock
There are 40 different shades of black, so many fortresses and ways to attack.

So why you complaining!

I really liked 6th ed.   It would be good to get some games of that again.   Nice to see people are going back to it.

My local club was going to have a 7th edition campaign to try and draw back some of the long beards to the store. Fairly last minute they put up a poll on facebook to see what people would prefer, and 6th is winning by a good 30% of the votes. (With 8th, then 2nd behind it in the poll. 8th I can see just by number of players, but there's a remarkable strong 2nd contingent apparently.)

2nd ed is complicated and long winded IMO. Long live sixth!

I've got my next game on Monday. Not sure what to take; Empire or DOW. Lots of work to do to raise the empire army from its slumbers. Though the thought of a TVI style list is very appealing and will blow them away tactically.

They are to expensive in the 6th ed list. 10 points each for a single S3 attack only with light armour.

The 6th edition tank rules are ridiculous. It won me so many games by itself.

Cheattacular!

I never used one. Not until this campaign, 8th ed rules, and then I made a rubbish Tilean version of it, which the maestro tried to turn into a mobile wall-ramp for siege purposes, but then the enemy sallied and destroyed it by locking it into place with ethereal troops. So ... extra rubbish. Maybe I should try the 'real' thing soon?

I thought that you could give them heavy armour for an extra point.   It is true that they are expensive but they are cool.   Heavily armoured pikemen are fun.   I'm trying to build a sort of pike and shoot army

It does, but you specifically need high-strength attacks (like cannonfire) and some armies just can't do it.
