I don't know if this should be in battle reports so I'm sorry if this is in the wrong place. Anyways, on to the question. Do any of you remember your first Fantasy Battle. I am about to have mine this weekend and am kind of nervous did any of you feel the same way and how did your battle go.
I was fairly nervous when it was my first game, I have been playing for a few months now but I remember my first game was when my woodies trounced a friend's ogres. That game my 10 GG (it was 1K) cut down an entire unit of IG, and held up a bare bull unit and a gorger in cc for the whole game because I cast the fear spell on them (muahahaha:ninja: ). Good luck and tell us about it.
My first game was the unfortunate matchup of tombkings vs lizardmen. I got destroyed sooo horribly. The Slaan with his "magical free dispel dice w/ any dispel attempt" owned just about all of my magic.
My first battle was years ago when I was about ten it was against my brother who was 12 (also his first battle). We were using my other brothers (I have three brothers, all play GW) dwarfs and high elf army (I was dwarfs) I was really exited got, absolutly trounced and then really upset because I accidently broke a lance on one of the High Elf Knights. My older brother wasn't too mad though he explained to me this thing called super glue......
I wasn't very nervous on my first game, I play it casually, because I absolutely thrased my opponents. I seem to win all the time, even though it is down to dice rolls a bit.
My first battle with my sylvannians against my brother (who was using his skaven for the first time) ended with me winning, but only by a small amount. He hammered one flank of my army and most of the front, but i managed to surround his general with many summoned cross-bowers, and ,well, the less said about what happend to his genral next the better...
My first battle against someone besides my twinbrother, was against another sylvannian guy, the best warhammer player in my local GW, it was a long fight, and i lost.
"If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face... for ever."
I didn't feel nervous at all, my first battle was against a close friend so it didn't matter if I screwed up. I suggest you do the same-the atmosphere is much better than in a GW shop against a stranger.

I find you can take crazier armies without any pressure that your opponent might find them unbalanced or cheesy (because your friend is probably doing the same) this means a far wider range of army choices are used and the game becomes more challenging as you try to second guess your opponent right from picking your armies until the very end.
Essentially you can be competitive without ruining the atmosphere.
Another thing I don't get is when you hear about veteran player absolutly trouncing new comers, I would find that quite boring, better to give the newbie an advanytage and make the game interesting, hell I end up offering advice (no I really wouldn't charge my zombies they will tie up your knight regiment for the whole game, charge the lone necromancer instead....oops there goes my magic)
I think that playing a tense game sort of defeats the point in playing at all - its supposed to be a fun game :yes:
