So i am starting with a Chaos Dwarf Warband that GW Spain wrote up in 2001ish. We are starting monday with 750 gp to get the game going, and most everyone is going to have a a huge bruiser. I am starting with a:
bull centaur, axe, shield, and heavy armour
champion 1, axe, brace of pistols
champion 2, 2-handed axe, shield
2 CD Blunderbusses, blunderbuss, axe
5 Hobgobs, axe, shield, bow
3 hobgobs, poison daggers
I think that should level out most close combat warbands.
game 2: so once again i am faced with the beastmmen that destroyed me, some pumped up skaven, and a possessed warband than gets owned by the skaven in 5 turns.
my hobgoblins all of them get crushed by the minotaur and centigor, but after taking out 3 of his beastmen and 2 of his doggies, my bull centaur crushes a hero, and missed every roll to kill his minotaur and ends badly again.
but the the real champs of the game are the blunderbusses, which wiped out his sorceror his leader and a few ungor in few shooting phases, and once again toe to toe with the rest of his warband staying just long enough for him to fail his rout test! amazing!
by end of the game my wizard, a champion, and the 2 blunderbusses are left against a an army of skaven, i force rout.
good game coming in second, and the experience rolls came decent, but wasted all my money on buying back all my hobs that died. so it was an ok win.
Bull centaur now causes fear though and a 5 toughness.
Well, very pleased to hear that you came second. If you’re going to keep buying Informers, you may want to consider giving them two daggers and, if you can, a bow. Don’t underestimate the power of shooting: your blunderbusses have been devastating, but bow fire can happen every single turn. Try to forge a secret alliance for the next multiplayer battle, trading gold if need be. It’s in character too
Alternatively, try to save up money rather than buying back hobgoblins that you will have to buy back each battle. With this money, you can buy better equipment for your characters or save up for more characters etc: more characters = more rolls post-battle = more money.
Excellent that your BC now causes fear and has T5. Good luck and remember your cam next time
