FG: Total Eclipse (Part One)
11/04/2017 Leave a comment
JP wanted us to start the “Thaw of the Liche Lord” campaign, so as what I thought would be one of my parting shots games wise, he hosted me at his place for the first scenario.
Holbron’s warband set up.
Versus the abomination Thaddeus (who is EVIL, and must be destroyed) and his servile minions.
I picked up the first treasure, and triggered a skeleton to wander on to the table…right behind me…
And then I picked up a second treasure, to trigger a Ghoul turning up, again behind me. Brilliant start to the game !
And of course, the Skeleton and Ghoul went into combat in the Creature phase, against Holbron, an archer and Gideon the Apprentice.
Luckily, Hobron has a Magic sword, so despatched the Ghoul, and then the Skeleton was similarly dealt with by the archer and Gideon.
As the darkness descended, Thaddeus’ capture of some treasure triggered the third wandering monster – this time a Rangifier behind his warband.
Moving into the centre of the table to grab some loot, the war bands finally met each other in combat. My knight dealt with a Zombie that Thaddeus had wrenched back into an unholy semblance of life, only for Thaddeus (who is VERY EVIL, and must be destroyed) to conjure forth a demon.
Thaddeus’ minions having been thwarted from getting the treasure chest as my thug scuttled away, turned their attention to my knight, and surrounded him with the Captain (Lady in Red) and Barbarian to back up the demon.
The Captain went down first.
The wounded Demon then bit the dust/snow.
And for a hat trick, the Barbarian perished at the tip of my Knight’s sword.
Three down, more to go. Both JP and I were very surprised at this turn of events !
As my knight model had only been undercoated black with a bit of silver…we started calling him….THE BLACK KNIGHT.
Originality is not our forte.
By now the heavens were darkening as strange things happened in the city.
To be cont’d…
