Reluctantly the beast slowed and bounced on the spot. The goblin warchief strained his ears. He could hear the chittering, squeaking and pattering of ratty feet fading into the distance.
Curse the ratmen. Stealing his treasures from him! Still at least he had one sack of treasures clutched tight. Now all he had to do was gather the lads together and make off.
Just then, shapes appeared out of the darkness, spears held aloft.
"Ladz!" Shreiked the warboss "I'ze over here"
"Ladz....?" he muttered nervously
There was something not quite right about the shape of those spears, they looked more like axes on sticks...
"Muncha!!!!" yelled the diminutive warboss, "get me outa here!" he screamed as the halbardiers rushed towards him...
General Ballroom and I convened for another game. Steve was indisposed, so we decided to see if Nubbinz could make off with the remaining Treasure of Tromney or if von Tanzsalle could reclaim the prize.
Feeling our forces had been scattered by the previous game I came up with a random distribution using playing cards so our forces were scattered and we didn't know who would end up where.
The objective what to get the treasure and as much of your army off the board as possible.
Nubbinz was in the centre of the board, holding the treasure with a variety of goblinz and empire units all around him. I rolled poorly for most troops and the squigs were nowhere near the handlers - things looked dicey.
