ok, since it's friday...and I got nothing better to do (work is boring) I was thinking about all the awesome fantasy games I've experienced in the past...
which lead me to one of my greatest fantasy experiences ever...
I was at a Rouge Trader at Origins, about five years ago. I was pretty n00bish, running all Chaos Khorne Cav. I was hardcore Chaos player still then, with three units of Khorne Knights (8 men per unit with upgrades) and then two units of Marauder Horsemen (again, 8 men per unit, with upgrades) I actually took some time to write up some fluff around the army and what not. Like I said, I was ultra hardcore chaos nut right then!
Actually, I still remember the entire list: Seric Dhemodus
Chaos Lord, Mark of Khorne, Blade of Rending, Daemonic Steed, Eye of Chaos (the item that gives 4+ ward, but you turn into a spawn if you run away), and enchanted shield
unit of 8 Chosen Knights of Khorne, full command
unit of 8 Knights of Khorne, full command
unit of 7 Knights of Khorne, full command
Aspiring Champion of Khorne, Chaos Steed, Sword of Might, random magical Chaos Armor (the leadership test one I think
two units of Marauder horsemen, unit champion, spears and shields.
...remember this was 6th ed, so I got rank bonuses from 4 wide...
Anyway, it was a two day Warhammer-beatdown-a-thon! The first day I played against Orcs and Goblins, High Elves, and Dwarves.
Things went pretty well for me, I am smart enough to handle the baiting with Frenzied models. I also had awesome luck at the time. The poor High Elf player could not get a bolt thrower to work out at all...
Anyway, the best moment of that tourney was day two...first game. I was playing against a Bretonnian player...everyone was saying this would be the game I lost. Anyway, Since I am the Fantasy Overlord
I managed to destroy all of his units, except his huge ass Grail Knight unit. I spent three 1/2 turns chasing that bastard around the table. It was terrible. Only time I ever looked at my opponent and told him he was a total piece of shit. Yes, I called him out and told him he was being a chickenshit. It was awesome!
Anyway, I ended up winning that battle, and the next, and finally losing to another Chaos player that out numbered me 4 to 1 (ran a lot of beast units)
I won Best overall at that event...and you know what I got? A 40K book signed by Andy Chambers. hahaha!
Anyway, anyone else have some awesome moments in Fantasy?
...o yeah, the (now) wife fell in love with Orcs at that event, so I quickly purchased an Orc and Gobbo army afterwards! good times!Warhammer Fantasy roXXors!Edit:
Random tidbit: I ended up playing against that same Bret player a few years later, at a Rogue Trader in Columbus. Then I was running Khorne Demonic Legion (see a pattern here?) This time I was ready for his shenanigans. Bloodthirster down the throat of the Grail Knights. Stupid poof
tests lost me the game though. He still didn't have his knights painted!
