Season’s greetings to you all, good will to all men etc etc…….but not Skaven!
As previously metioned this Tuesday was the final meeting of the year, aka Pizza Night, as well as the final round of the Mordheim campaign.
Just one round of games this week to allow us to plow through 8 large offerings of Pizza Hut’s finest fare accompanied by a few sides of garlic bread with cheese and a few mince pies all washed down with lashings of ginger beer. Ahh TRADITION…can’t beat it :)
Back at the gaming the Orcs employed the Possessed shaman to conduct the ANCIENT RITUAL, as their shaman didn’t understand anything non fungal, whilst the Skaven attempted to stop them or even hijack the ANCIENT RITUAL via a Hold the Find scenario. Everyone else played linked games feeding into the final result.
The Skaven assault was utterly deadly with 7 of their opponents out of action on the first turn alone. Fighting valiantly the unholy alliance came close to completing the ritual before both shamans were eventually overwhelmed. The possesed spell-slinger was in fact impaled by a critically hitting spear thrust stapling him to the back of a troll……what a way to go! With such a convincing victory the side results had little impact as the horned god swept to victory.
Withe the Grimoire of Grunburg in their possesion will they overwhelm the town itself. Maybe one day we will return and find out!
Meanwhile, in the words of Eddie Murphy a la Trading Places, MERRY NEW YEAR!!!
Mordheim: The Final Reckoning
