GA: First Game

As commented in my previous post, playing a game is much better than reading the book.

So I sat down and did the second war band randomly rolling the Heritor’s abilities. By happenstance, the abilities meshed well (Fling; Crushing Blow; Steelheart; and Deathstrike) and it was obvious he was a combat specialist and I chose a model accordingly.

L-R: Heritor; Warden; Archer; Crossbowman; Freebooter; Tombrobber; and 2 Crewmen.

Warning, here follows more pictures of lots of naked land and plastic models on a poorly presented table, warmers of a nervous disposition should sit down and or avert their eyes.

So with two war bands written up, I went for a simple head to head.

I’ll keep this brief as it was a solo effort, and the models/scenery aren’t all that good, but it’ll give the reader an idea of what went on.

With only 8 models in the war band, set up becomes a bit more tactical. If you want the central treasure which gives the most XP, you have to be careful. If you want sheer numbers of treasure, that’s a different tactic.

NB: As per previous updated post, you can have another couple of crew ! See 20.

Ghost Archipelago also is the haunt of Pinja Numas ! (Similar to Ninja Pumas, only smaller, and more furry)

Now I know why the GA Accessory Pack includes that dice.
I used my Heritor’s “Spell Shield” ability in turn one.

Earth wave, used by my “opponent” to shift a treasure closer to their forces, similar to telekinesis but not as good. As others have comment, whilst the casting value of spells is lower in GA, so are the effects.

Brambles – similar to Wall or Fog.
As cast by my Vine Warden.

Random encounters on 12+…oops here’s a Stalker Saurian…

Top of the world Ma !
The opposing Heritor gets to the top and claims the treasure, at the same time as my Savage does on the other pile of rocks.

And is joined by “my” Heritor, Vicky, who trashes the enemy Mercenary.

End of the game – I had 3 treasures including the central treasure, and the opponent had two.

One model down and needing to roll on the recovery chart.

Lets start rolling on the after game XP and treasure charts as well…

What did I learn ?

To be cont’d…
