We're due to kick of a small campaign so this was an excuse to get the armies out for a warm-up.
Sadly my camera saw fit to behave very poorly, so I can but apologise for the poor quality pictures. However, having taken them I figured I might as well slap 'em up.
We played Blood and Glory with a minor variation. In one corner of each side was a terrain feature desirable to the opposition. A Temple of Skulls and a Graveyard respectively. Having a unit of five or more models on the feature counted as an additional point of fortitude for your army.
We also tried out the rules from the BRB scenarios section where each player can only talk tactics with his team mate if he uses up a "messenger". Each player has two messengers, granting three minutes of conversation with his team-mate.

I was using my WoC who haven't had a run out in this edition (or, probably, with the current army book) and was allied with the notorious Hall-Scurry - Skaven warlord of ill repute, facing off against a pair of VC armies. I'd gone for a sorcerer and two units of 18 warriors backed up with five hounds and a unit of Marauder horse. Unlike our undead opponents we failed to make much of an initial plan and so were on the back foot a bit from the off...
I launched my hounds at the bats, but failed to destroy them, leaving the poor dogs easy prey for another unit of skellies
The Tzeentch Chaos Warriors were giving a good account of themselves, despite the fearsome presence of the vampire, and the hexwraiths were thrown in to help. In the centre the Graveguard got in a long charge to crash into the front of the Slaanesh warriors. The huge unit of clanrats meanwhile was struggling to kill ten Direwolves.
Finally the Terrorgheist (still largely un-singed) was launched across the river into the flank of the Tzeentch warriors, and with that they were wiped out.
At which point my force reached it's break point and disappeared. Although the Skaven lasted another combat it was clearly only a mater of time and the field belonged to the lords of undeath...
