We are playing using most of the Blood in the Badlands rules, with a few changes to suit our story and location in the Darklands. We have played the first campaign turn so far and made the moves for the second turn, now waiting for the battles to take place. So far its been a great start of my Averland Empire armies, thanks to a lucky roll on the random events chart I have a third army, were my opponants only have two; this has allowed me to land grab and thus become the biggest empire.
In turn 1 I played Marks vampire led undead army and despite his relentless cheating I managed a win, largely thanks to mentalist Flaggellants and my Hero of Legend Hierophant Khaefesh Usterveld (aka an Arch Lector). My Flaggellants secured my left flank by giving a large unit of Ghouls and characters a jolly good seeing too, supported by the efforts of Usterveld as he smashed a mortis engine to iddy biddy bits. They then turned to support the right flank just as my greatswords were faltering, though credit is well deserved by the Empire elite as they held up a grave guard unit led by Abdabdegwengo (sorry Mark couldnt remember your vamp lords name, so I thought I name him after George from Phonejacker) a vampire lord for a very long time. I also had my steam tank in play and yes they are very slow and over priced these days, but very very pretty; it helped too by taking out Marks zombies. 300pt tank to take on 90pts of Zombies? Sure why not.
So next for me is a big fight with Sam's Skaven in the north. Im a bit worried as his mine has given him a scary amount of extra points, however my mines have given me some fancy magic items; including the Helm of the Ratslayer. Lets see that helm live up to its name!
