Xmashammer 2016 – Battle of the Barrows


The fourth and final scenario from the Blood of Sigmar book, and our last game of the two days. I was once again, not catering in the afternoon so there’s more photos this time round.

A bigger battle the the previous ones. The Vampire Counts set up, but expected to receive reinforcements that would randomly emerge from the various mausoleums on the board.

Just as well as the Empire came packing Loonarks and other weird stuff !

We won initiative, and cast a spell to push a bunch of skeletons across the table to get down the enemy’s gun line ASAP.

Which we followed up with more of our forces.

Doh, we had hoped to get into combat with the Witch Hunter again, but failed.

Quelle suprise.

Reinforcements

We engaged the enemy, not with great success.

Well this should be an easy win, shirley ?

Don’t call be Shirley !

All out war !

Reinforcements arrived for both sides as we clashed in a mass combat.

Somehow skeletons versus heavily armoured mounted knights, is not a fair fight…

Eventually the Vampire Counts were defeated, which we suspect was the intended outcome of the campaign.

Bar a few silly mistakes, the dice and scenarios were against us.

What also didn’t help was Gav and I not being au fiat with the Undead rules. C’est la vie.

Important thing was we had a good time.

    C’est la vie? Can we say this when we were playing undead? Thanks to Jim for bringing a fun campaign. Cheers,
