Looting the dead. Brets+DoW vs TK
« on: December 28, 2018, 02:14:16 PM »
Hello all,

Xmas game with JChaos, but with a very special surpise as Brutalrage and his wife came to play with us a four players game!  8)

We played the "looting the dead" scenario made by Jchaos:

http://www.forum.specialist-arms.com/index.php?topic=4086.15

A greedy bretonnian Baron hires a Dogs of War army and heads to the khemri deserts to rob and steal treasures belonging to their rightful owners: the Tomb kings. Obviously, the peaceful undead are not very happy with the idea and fight back.  ;)

When an invanding infantry unit touches the small buildings, the pyramid or the temple a 1D6 is rolled in this table:

     1 - Nothing... just an illusion of gold shine
     2- Gold and precious stuff of Nekarka civilization +25 victory points
     3- Magical object. Generate Randomize object from the book and give it to the unit who has reached the Treasure.
     4- Hidden traps, the treasure is guarded by traps, like needles, serpents, big rolling balls as Indy Jones, etc... resolve the traps as 3 shots over the unit no armour saves are allowed.
     5 - No treasure but a lot of animated bones. A unit of skelletons arise just as the raise dead spell
     6- Nothing but generates another Treasure point randomize in the table.


JChaos fielded an army enterely based on pikemen and I took Brets.
Unfortunately we took few pictures and we couldn't finish the battle because of lack of time so I can not do a full report in pics. 
Some bowmen managed to get a magic sword... just before being crushed by undead chariots, and the mercenary looted a tomb, without finding nothing.

The battle was very fun, and it was great to meet in person Mr and Mrs Brutalrage and their undead hordes. I was lucky the battle ended before Mrs Brutalrage could finish kicking my knights' asses.  ;D

Thanks for the report Edmund2011, and thanks for your previous Kislev on ice one too- I had overlooked that somehow.

Thanks Marell,

The scenario idea is here:

We just randomly generated the terrain features and treasure spots.
