Okay this was my first game ever and I was playing my friend with my lizardmen army against his dwarf army. We decided upon atleast 1500 points since both of us had just started playing and hadn't gotten every model cut and painted.
My Lizardmen List
2 Units of 18 Saurus w/ Shields, handweapons, and the BS of Queztl
2 Units of Normal Skinks w/ Blow pipes
1 Unit of Scouting Skinks
1 Skink Priest Lvl2 w/ Dispell Scroll and Power Dice
My Friend's Dwarf List
1 Unit of 20 Miners
2 Units of 15 Dwarf Warriors
2 Dwarf Cannons
1 Unit of 10 Bunderbluster
I rolled for my magic in the Lore of Heavens and I reroll 1's in a Unit and the Lightning bolt with no armor saves.
My friend said dwarfs don't need magic so we began.
I deployed first and we had two forests on my side of the table on on the left and the other on the right and one forest and a hill on his side of the table.
I deployed my first Unit of Saurus on the left side of the table.
then he mirrored me and planted his dwarf warriors on his right (My left) and they were at least 6 inches away from a forest. Right there I felt sorry for him because I knew then where to put my scouting skinks.
Next I put the other unit of Saurus facing the center of the field.
He also mirrored my move and place his dwarf warriors facing directly at my saurus. Right now then i was wondering what he was up to.
then I place my Skink right next to the Sauru Unit facing the center to protect their right flank. Then he placed his war machines ontop of his hill and they were all facing the center.
Right then I knew he wasn't going to budge an inch and just shoot the Sh*t out of me. The last unit of normal skinks I placed behind my Saurus Unit that was on the left to protect them from the miners who could pop up behing my Saurus Unit. Next he put his unit of Bunderblusters also facing the middle so that he can shoot the saurus unit that I had facing the middle. Lasly he put his thane on the Dwarf warriors that was on my left. I then put my skink priest all be his lonesome away from the major units. And last but not least I placed the Scouting Skinks in the forest that was 6" away from his Unit of Dwarf Warriors. He then swore alot because he had forgotten about the Scouting Skinks.
So we rolled off who was gonna go first and even though he had +1 to his rolls I rolled a six and he got a one.
Turn 1 Lizardmen Army
Marches: Both my Units of Saurus marched 8 inches forward and I also marched the unit of the skinks in the center up 12"
Other Movement: The Unit of Skinks to my left moved up 6" to protect the rear of the saurus and the Scouting Skinks in the forest moved up to the edge of the forest to shoot at the dwarf warriors
Magic: I was able to cast off the Uranon's Thunder Bolt at the warmachines killing one of the three crew members. LUCKY!
Shooting: The Scouting Skinks in the forest shot poisonous darts at the dwarf warriors-with 20 shots and poison on a 6 I got a total of 10 WOUNDS. Double LUCKY! But he saved all but 2 of them.
End: I ended my turn with 3 kills and first blood not bad.
Turn 1 Dwarfs
My friend tried to get the miners out but he couldn't
Marches: He marched the center dwarfs foward as well as the Bunderblusters.
Other Movement: he Detactched he Thane and had him run for cover.
Shooting: He blasted 4 of my skinks away in the center with his bunderblusters then he shot off his cannons at the Unit of Saurus in the center first shot was too far and second shot was too close.
End: He killed 4 Skinks more than what I did to him.
Turn 2 Lizardmen
Marches: My two Unit of Lizardmen marched 8" again
Other Movement: I moved my two units of normal skinks up 6"
Magic: I cast off the thunder bolt to kill only 2 dwarf bunderblusters
Shooting: My Scouting skinks this time took 5 dawfs away enough for a panic check but their amazing stubboness made them stay.
End: I killed off 7 dwarfs this time and got a panic check. I asked him why didn't he try to attack the skinks in the forest he said his dwarfs were too damn slow and if they got stuck in the forest they would never get out. Okay, whatever his lost.
Turn 2 Dwarfs
This time he got his miners out and they were staring at my saurus in the flank luckily they couldn't charge this turn and too bad for him my skinks had them in their sights.
Marches: He moved his dwarves down the center racing towards my Saurus
Other Movement: He moved his Bunderblusters closer and I had them right in for a charge by my Saurus if they could survive this turn.
Shooting: He set my Saurus Unit ablaze-Just Kidding he tried to kill off the Saurus but his Bunderblusters killed only 3 and one cannon got 1 I did a panic check but thanks to cool cold blood they stayed.
End: Luckily my lizardmen lasted long enough and now it was time for payback.
Turn 3 Lizardmen
Charges: I charged the Bunderblusters with my Saurus he stood and shot down none. LUCKY.
Marches: I marched the Skinks in the center towards the warmachines. Hehehe....
Other Movement: I mad a 180 with the block of Saurus on the left towars the Miners and waited.
Magic: I tried to get lighting but got a 4 on the rolls.
Shooting: The Scouting Skinks shot the Sh*t out of the dwarf warriors got another 3 but they stood their ground. The Skinks on the left shot the Miners and get more then half of them and they failed their panic test and ran back down their hole. Wow what a waste of movement for my Saurus they didn't even have to fight.
Combat: I owned his Bunderblusters no questions asked they didn't even phase me. His Bunderblusters ran 4" and I got him.
End: VERY LUCKY I got his unit of Miners and his Bunderblusters.
Turn 3 Dwarf
Marches: He moved the center block of dwarf warriors toward my Saurus and had them in charging range.
Other Movement: He took advanatage of my now 180 Saurus and started to move forward and He was also in range from my skinks that was behind the Saurus but could see them.
Shooting: He agained owned my Saurus Block in the center and got 4 of my Saurus but they stood their ground.
End: This game was about to be over I had him.
Turn 4 Lizardmen
Other Movement: I moved in my Skinks towards the warmachines for the kill and same with the skinks on the left. I turned my Saurus towards the dwarfs and got ready for a charge.
Magic: Failure, is an option-4 again.
Shooting: I shot down his dwarfs on the left and got one of his warmachine crew down as well.
End: With things looking bad for him he looked at me and said my turn yet.
Turn 4 Dwarf
Charges: He charged the center
Other Movement: none
Shooting: He could see my skink priest and tried to shoot him but it was a misfire and the cannon exploded killing one crew member. We both laughed it was so funny.
Combat: Amazing turn around his unit of Dwarf warriors slaughtered my Saurus I didn't even get to attack back and I failed panic check and ran for a measly 2" and Dwarfs-DWARFS were able to chase them down and cut them down.
End: He got what he was looking for and then he conceded.
It was a good game for begginers-not we had so many questions that the older veteran players who were watching go fed up with us. But it was fun.
Victory in the Name of the OLD ONES
Well done on your first game being a victory, and for taking the effort to report it. Considering you're a beginner, I thought you played pretty well, with few major mistakes. Keep it up!
no lol, with few, as in you didn't really make any
