So I had a game against the new O&G today, and I just had to post up some of the stuff that happened...good grief.
So, I went first, and my death wizard cast Purple Sun on his big unit of Orc boyz, killing 14 (he passed his panic). Other than that nothing really.
His turn, he charged his unit of 10 spider rides into my Shaggoth, then in his magic phase cast Gork's Warpath irresistably, killing 7 of my warriors, the player then managed to roll a 4+ FIVE times in a row, wiping out both my units of Warriors, including my BSB and both wizards. The orc shaman promptly forgot the spell he cast and 2 levels in the bargain.
To add insult to injury, the spider riders beat the Shaggoth in close combat and ran him down. Yep, 265 points run down by...130. *sigh*
Finally, his three mangler squigs all run through my Trolls, killing them all.
So there you go, my shameful defeat by basically Gork not liking my face and stomping all over my army and then giving those spider riders seemingly limitless 6s. But what can you do, ey? One of the most fun games I've had in awhile.
With that many hideously hacking dice rolls you can't say that you were shamefully defeated. The Gods let you down more than anything else! My massed Orcs (about 180 at 2500 points) got smashed in five turns by a Warrior force half it's size thanks to my opponent's evil number of successful armour saves (only four 5+ fails all game) and the unbelievable number of A his Warriors were doing every round.
At least you had fun as I did!
Give a man a gun and he can rob a bank. Give a man a bank and he can rob the world.
Got an opponent who always rolls massive amounts of 6's with poison? Curse of the Midnight Wind should fix that.
Sona si Latine loqueris.
If it's any consolation my 1500pt Orc army played a Throgg army a few weeks ago.
At the end of it I killed Festus with my Warboss and a Warshrine WITH MY WOLF RIDERS!! Everything else was still alive (A dead Troll here n there but that was it) other than that i was wiped out. I think the wolf riders were the only things left, and that was because they could run faster than the trolls.
Well I think there's one lesson we can all learn from this, O&G light cavalry (of either kind) are freakin' fantastic. Seriously, taking on a warshrine and a shaggoth? Good golly Ms. Molly!
