After a productive rummage through the city, it was time to head back to their temporary den. The Skaven warband “Fierce” was scurrying back through the city as a good pace. The six rats easily moved through the shadows without making a noise. Even the large rat ogre, Stinky, had no trouble sticking to the darkness as shadows grew longer.
Cheesey the Assassin Adept came to a silent hault, and the warband froze. From the distance came the loud bellowing of the quarreling green-skin warband. The dumb brutes were walking in their direction. Cheesey saw that they were both heading down the same street, with only one way to get to the other side; by slicing through the thick sculls of the Orc warband.
Cheesey almost squealed in delight of the thought of sinking his fighting claws into the Orcs who had forced him to retreat.
The persistent yet patient badgering of the neighbor I so happily taught about Mordheim has forced me to start Montana Mordheim Campaign 2. Michael has not even mentioned Mordheim in months, but when I went over to see his new puppy, he was calling “Mortheim” out to me before I even go to his driveway. I really didn’t think I’d be able to post on this blog for a long while, and I most likely will not be able to do the most fun parts (building terrain and painting minis), but the playing the game every week or so will still be a good break.
Ashton’s Orcs (no time for names yet =(. )
We played another game on the 14th, but I’ve been so busy I wasn’t able to write/post it until today.
Mordheim Game Setup:
My board and my models are not completely painted yet, but I have enough terrain to make a very crowded board. I feel that a nice cramped Mordheim board with few open spaces is how the destroyed city really should be like. The upside of such a crowded board, so that shooty warbands have a tough time getting shots off; enforcing the Close Combat emphasis of the Mordheim Game.
Here’s a shot of the board:
