Post battle report

Last friday our second Border Town Burning campaign started off with a four player battle..

Ogres, Witch Hunters, Marienburger mercenaries and my Possessed battled for treasures hidden in chests, spread around the ruins (sorry, forgot the name of the scenario :-). There was a small chance that a chest contained a 'deamonic dog' instead of gold... So, in line with the laws of logic and statistics, every chest that was opened during our battle contained such a creature...


A Ninja Gnoblar with one of the fearless doggies.


Can the Witchhunters crack open one the dog infested crates?

It was though a bit surprising that the only warband with a 'normal' mix of heroes and henchmen managed to snatch the victory. That in spite of the endeavours by well thought-out warbands lead by veteran Mordheim players as for example a one hero all hired swords Marienburg gang, a all hero a bit on the shore side for henchman (just one) bunch of Possessed and a Ogre quartet supplemented by a Halfling. What could go wrong?


Here the fearless Marienberg hirelings!


The Halfling looking for trouble, can he see that withchunter, can he be shot?


Not shot, but bitten by dogs he can!

In the post battle events Scorpio, my unlucky Possessed who met two Ogres and went out of action, had to fight for his freedom in the Rind (Entry 65 on the Border Town Burning injury table). Because of a lack of time I went home without finishing this event. Few days later I used PBE Game Dice Roller to play the fight between Scorpio and a nasty Chaos Warrior:

Roll One
Generating 1 rolls of D2, 1 per line.
Comment: 1: Chaos Warriors gets the charge, 2: ST charges in...

2 ==> Scorpion Tail gets the charge(YEAH!)
CW: Fear check: 2 (he's cool..)
ST: 2 bare handed attacks
ST: To hit (WS 4 vs WS5: 4+): 5, 6 (two hits)
ST: To wound (S4 vs T4: 4+): 5,5 (two wounds)
CW: Armour saves (3+ -> 4+): 3, 1 (two fails!)
ST: OutOfAction: 5, 5 (OUT OF ACTION!!)

Scorpion Tail kills the Chaos Warrior in the first round of combat .....
And by the Border Town Burning rulebook: "He gains the mutation blackblood (!!), +2 Experience, +1 campaign point and evades
detection to rejoin his warband with all his weapons and equipment."

In the end on of the hirelings left was of course the dwarf Trollslayer.
