Friday night, just to get things going we started with a BIG BATTLE HOTT game. The three Orcs and the Dwarves on ones side (which was referred to as the D’orc alliance all night…), The three Humans with the elves on the other. Just some quick pics and commentary as the players will soon be here to kick off the campaign proper…
(all armies, except Mr. Tim Miller's goblins, were provided by me...)
(Remember: click on the pictures for a bigger version)
The “Good Guys” (L to R) Cory, Rick, Terry, and Chris
Chris here had never played HOTT before this evening! Neither had Terry.
The Lines move forward
Tim (Orcs), Bob (Dwarves) and Christian (Orcs)
Goodies on the left, Baddies on the right. Already mixing it up on the flanks!
The Three humans.
Bob’s Dwarves and Terry’s Vikings finally begin skirmishing in the woods.
Cory’s Anglo-Saxon’s and Christian’s Orcs still eyeing each other up while Rick’s Elves and Jackson’s Orcs are busy hammering on each other!
Dwarves, Orcs and Humans again at the other end of the table.
Christian’s Behemoths make first contact.
CRUNCH! The Saxon and Orc Battle lines finally clash!
Dwarves and Vikings are still skirmishin while the Orcs and Normans have been going at it hammer and tongs for a while…
I don’t know how many turns this giant (Behemoth) pushed back this line of Blades and archers. The behemoth and Blades being the principle combatants, IN WOODS(!?), The combat factors were usually +1 vs. +1… and they just kept on fighting…
The mail lines of the Elves and Jackson’s Orcs meet!
Mr. Miller had an evening of incredible bad luck…
I think this is the turn before Jackson and Rick’s respective Hero Generals went at it – Jackson’s being the loser. The game went quickly downhill thereafter.
In the end “Good” triumphed over “Evil”…
All had fun and were excited to start the Campaign in the morning.
