Warriors of Chaos Vs Dark Elves

Game three:.......... :P

Round three saw us drawn against Team Dragon. As the name suggests these guys each had an elf army with a dragon and the 4th had demons with a greater demon of tzeentch (kind of dragony). I got paired up with;

Callum Drury

The shades went into a building left of centre and I ignored them through the game. They did very little where they were. On the right flank Callum’s knights, a master and dragon did a number on my knights. On the left my marauder horse took out his dark riders. In the centre one of my blocks took a charge from a master and killed him (more on this later).

Magic got the hydra and my war shrine held his remaining knights and master. Callum could have ran his dragon and hid for the win but stayed to fight. One of my blocks hit the dragon, beat it in combat and ran it down.

When we tallied up the points it was a draw (114pts in my favour). It was a great game and Callum is a fun guy to game against. He never gloated when the dice were going his way and never got grumpy when they didn’t. This was the main reason that I did not ask for the score to be changed to take account that one of my unit champions had killed his master BSB in a challenge and should have got +50pts for an underdog kill giving me an 11-9 win. Callum could have easily won by running his dragon lord away but didn’t so as to have a better game. He and his team got our vote for best sports.
