|Some of the finest wargamers around I suppose|
I was eager to test my newly aquired templar and treasure hunter though since most of my force consisted in men at arms so far.
The wizard accompanied by some guards went in town to get the furthest treasures...
The wizard on the other side kept using a very annoying spell : "wall" which made me change plans. I very stupidly misevaluated the prowess of the templar though and the men started to fall on my side at an alarming rate...
The game ended up with me scoring 2 treasures only and every member of the team falling.
The post game sequence revealed that Gladius didn't make it and his comrades made a quick but moving ceremony in his honour.
The day after that, they hired his twin brother who was conviniently called Gladius too.
Last game of all a was a 4 players game with random orders each turn (drawn with cards). My opponents would be Skip (whose army I forgot to photograph, Sean aka theottovonbismark and his delicious frogs and Colin aka the Whiskey Priest with his old worders.
It was great fun seeing 2 players fight each other on the table, knowing I'd probably not encounter any during the whole game !
Meanwhile, the apprentice was trying to emulate his master's work by sending other members to grab treasures as well. Cast "Jump", cover with "elemental balls" then repeat...
Knowing I had secured 4 treasures and I had managed to take the apprentice down, my wizard got cocky and climbed up the wall of the cemetary to snipe his opponent with an "elemental bolt". at that point, I had boosted my wizard and spells so this one worked just fine and the tear in Colin's eye almost broke my cold and sick heart.
