Azog’s Vanguard & first BC match
It was a pleasant experience to finish this new Vanguard Force from Gundabad for the Battle Companies expansion. Painting 6 models in a row is something I can still do without getting too much distraction in between. I am pretty curious to see how the elite from Mount Gundabad will perform in their first match. I think I will nominate the 3 Orcs wearing shields as the heroes.
In the meantime Flattervieh and me had our first match with two Battle Companies made from our old stock of miniatures. It was Rohan fighting Moria in the scenario 6 (stand your ground). All I can say is that it was (not surprisingly) a whole lot of fun to play. Especially the evolution of the warbands and heroes is something very much in the vein of Mordheim (which is always a good thing). Even though the Goblins from Moria won this match I couldn’t spend my influence points as I am saving them up for a Cave Troll – ha! Oh, and my boss suffered a permanent leg wound but he was never keen on leading attacks anyway, haha.
