Wormaster Warmaster Warm Up

With the Wormaster event in Worcester fast approaching Matt kindly agreed to a last minute warm up game (nothing so ungentlemanly as "practicing" you understand, merely a gentle re-familiarisation with the rules)

I gave him a 2K Chaos force probably a little sub-optimal is it relies on what I have painted and I took the 2k of Empire I'd be using at Wormaster

Heron on Griffon and pistoliers supported by crossbows hold the right flank and protect the artillery.

Big block of infantry and knights in the centre

Matt sent the chariots racing forward.

And parked the warriors on the hill

He landed flyers in behind so the hellblaster and missile troops turned to deal with them.

The Steam Tank Choo-Chooed off in front.

The chariots took damage and were driven back confused.

But I didn't fancy trying to shift the warriors

Dragon Ogres raced out and smashed in to the knights

Eventually they were driven back but at some cost to the Empire horse.

Remaining White Wolves took on the Marauder horse.

While the Stank fought chariots.

The last DO tried his luck against flagellants.

The knights struggled to make headway against the Marauders.

More chariots came and brutalised the Steam Tank (I forgot it counts as defended, which didn't help)

The hero had to go and help the knights out.

Meanwhile the Chaos Knights were advancing on the Empire guns.

The Empire left flank remained unmolested.

Chariots made it to the rear of the Empire lines. Which is less than ideal.

And the Knights hammered the artillery.

After killing the guns the Chaos knights got attacked by the flagellants.
And I threw Pistoliers in to the mix.

Warriors came to try and rescue their general.

But at the last the knights were cut down and the Empire claimed the win.

Good fun game that I sneaked a win because Matt had mistakenly thought his general could leave the combat.
Mostly I learned that Empire is actually quite hard to use and remembering why I'd mostly played Chaos in the past!

Next stop Worcester!
