Daemons v Undead - a Warhammer 8th edition game

Stephen and I got together for a cheeky Saturday afternoon game of Warhammer 8th edition (greatest of all the games).
I fettled a scenario from One Hour Wargames, based loosely on Wavre.
The attackers have to get one third of their army off via the road and hold the gatehouse over the river, meanwhile the defenders must remove a sixth of their army via the same route at the end of each of turns two, four and six of the seven turn game.
We set up then diced to see who would attack -turned out to be me and my Slaanesh Daemons.

I'm still struggling with my camera in the North Notts Palais des Jeux - despite Stephen investing in higher quality illumination. I suspect it's more to do with me not knowing how best to use a camera.

The daemons splashed across the river - which turned out to be potentially nasty, but good rolls and then some daemonic saves meant casualties were light.

Meanwhile the undead knights headed off the board without taking part as the Vampiric withdrawal began.

After a little to-ing and fro-ing the big batty things charged the Keeper of Secrets.

And the vampire himself decided to have a go at the Daemonettes.

Which he proved rather good at.

The Keeper dealt with the flappy things, but then got some Zombies all up inside his grill.

The fiends charged more dead stuff, desperate to get off the board.

Not sure what the diff is between these pics.

The Vamp Lord joined in to take out the Keeper.

Inevitably the Daemon lord succumbed to the Vampire.
However only a third of the Undead forces had made it off by the end of turn six.
Unfortunately I had insufficient troops to claim the town and exit the table.

So we called it a draw.

Good fun game and the scenario worked to make things interesting.

Hurrah for Warhammer!
