Olympic OGAM Day - game two

So, fortified by a Black Pudding panini (delicious) it was time to face Chris and his followers of Athena. In addition to 'er Ladyship Chris had centaurs (sober) and a small unit of hoplites with the Minotaur, Herakles and a Generic Greek hero by the name of Jason,

We were playing the sacred grove scenario.

The forces assemble

Orpheus strums a little ditty to raise morale.

The Centaurs decline to get "on the cans"

The Athena model is from the Mythic Pantheon boardgame and Chris' paint job was great. Lovely model.

Big Herk soon ran amok. Much to Odysseus' relief he headed off in a different direction

Hermes and the Harpies moved up into back field.

Perseus had joined my crew (James had some cards with small random additions to forces that we drew after each game).

My archers began creeping around the grove.

Soon enough Athena popped Hermes

And Jason did for Perseus

Odysseus finally dared the Sacred Grove and, inevitably fell victim to the vengeful spirits. Orpheus sang a lamentation.

Hermes popped back and clashed again with Athena, this time aweing all and sundry.
Altogether now "Awwwwwwwwww"

With time ticking Athena nudged into the grove

Orpheus did his best to stay out of range.

Herk and the lads moved up.

While Hermes went and picked on the centaurs.

The reduced harpies made a nuisance of themselves

But Athena was ruling the grove.

Herk chased off the hoplites and victory went to the goddess.

Another great fun game. A bit less swingy this one, we both stayed clear of the grove - with good reason as it turned out. Chris was a splendid opponent and his army looked cracking.
