End of Orc Town Day 1 and it’s a familiar face:

Third game of Orc Town Day 1 was against one of my favorite opponents (also from our sister club), with the upgunned version of an army I faced at Crossroads last year. I barely understood what Barka and Ba’su’s are capable of, but as it turned out, super-individuals are indeed pretty annoying. I couldn’t tell you what we played – frankly, it may have been Kill! Whatever we were doing, it involved violence and the Dwarfs going first.
Round 3 we played on the Town of Yahbuttia table.
Abyssal Dwarfs 1: The formation Halfbreeds are the rightmost two, in flying V’s near Barka
Bloodfire 1: *limbering up*
Abyssal Dwarfs 2: That was fast! Sprites die, wound dice go everywhere
Bloodfire 2: Gargoyles die, as does a formation Halfbreed I’m guessing because I hosed it with shooting and then surge-charged in, AND the left-flanking Halfbreeds thanks to hot Jarraider dice
Abyssal Dwarfs 3: The next wave hits …
Abyssal Dwarfs 3: … taking down the Jarraiders and the Martyr Priest (sorry Agnes!), and otherwise bouncing
Bloodfire 3: Agnes tries to deliver some pain before her imminent death, the Tortured Souls are burnt down, Grots get punched, and in a surprise move, the leftmost Fire Elementals flank the Blacksouls, shattering them
Abyssal Dwarfs 4: Violence! You can see Ba’su’su bouncing around across my deployment zone all game, combo-charging everything
Abyssal Dwarfs 4: Agnes dies (curse you Barka!), as do the Grots’ Fire Elementals
Bloodfire 4: The Slave Orcs get shot to hell, surge-charged and routed; meanwhile the Herald tries to boop a formation Halfbreed regiment, for that lucky pop (no dice)
Abyssal Dwarfs 5: Murder! Including the Slave Driver charging some Fire Elementals, his charges all dead
Abyssal Dwarfs 5: It’s mostly effective! Bloodfire right flank is run down, also Ba’su’su did 7! wounds to the CLOFD in one go O_O
Bloodfire 5: Lots of counter-charges, which mostly work (CLOFD should have just run forward and not even tried to deal with Ba’su’su … which is kind of messed up, given how big and expensive my monster is)
Abyssal Dwarfs 6: More fast murder!
Abyssal Dwarfs 6: Barka kills some Sprites, Halfbreeds kill the CLOFD
Bloodfire 6: Fire Elementals kill those Halfbreeds, other Fire Elementals face south for who knows why!
I kind of think this one came down to a right tidy …
Which was a totally copacetic way to end Day 1, at more or less 50% against some great dudes. I’ll have Day 2 either late this week or next.
