FG 2019 03 08 – The Complex Temple


A trip down memory lane as I start going through the accumulated photos and battle reports of the last~6 months. Here’s one from march.

Aland I were playing Old Mother Parma and Tipstaff for our third game.

Standard “the Complex Temple” scenario.

I still hadn’t progressed my painting beyond basic silver and flesh with the odd bit of colour (shame on me).

So off we go, Alan wins Initiative (an eerily familiar feeling), and promptly downs my Captain with a Elemental Bolt.

So in response, I surged forward to engage the first Pillar with an old lady, an Apothecary and a thug….

Given that in previous games of this scenario, I’d managed to kill two of JP’s figures I wasn’t feeling hopeful of these three attacking an inanimate object.

Especially when in the Apprentice phase, my Apprentice got zapped, followed by the war hound getting zapped.

First round, and a quarter of the war band out of action !

But at least my Ranger decked one of his Archers.

My remaining troops attempted to assault the pillar and failed, whilst an Archer took cover.

Having beaten the first pillar which disgorged its treasure, I promptly lost the Apothecary to a well timed shot, leaving Old Mother Parma scuttling for cover.

Leaving my X-bow woman to provide cover from the advancing minions of Tipstaff.

But not enough cover to help the thuggette who got downed by a Barbarian and Archer.

melee !

And then Tipstaff and his sidekick Canaan Banana started conjuring up Walls.

I’d chanced my arm…and it got pretty much cut off !

karma was restored when Tipstaff attacked a pillar, and I rolled a natural 20, and down he went ! very ironic as that is what I had rolled (twice) when JP had assaulted the pillar in our game over a year earlier !

Tipstaff again won, but not by quite as much as he had hoped.

To make things worse, even though 2/3rds of my warband had been put out of action every one of them survived unscathed even the warhound !

On to the second game.
