A Tale of Three Comets

Introduction

After a long time I decided to do a battle report again. My smartphone is actually broken, so all pictures were taken with my replacement phone, the quality might be lacking a little.

Luckily the battle did not lack in that regard. EM was bringing his Vermin to invade/infect/eat up the lands of my Dread Elves. We played 4500 points with the standard ruleset: Random scenario, random secondary, random pick from the map pack.

This time the armies were quite alike. EM brought a mixed arms type of list, while I did pretty much the same, acting as if we didn’t know which army we’d be facing.

The game took place on 2018-08-14.

Sword versus Arrow

Introduction

It was blood versus blood time again. The Highborn Elves and the Dread Elves. A hate-hate relationship only manageable with blood ties. My good friend SH brought on his host of arrow wielding Highborn aiming to pierce the armour of my Dread Elves from afar and claiming victory without every getting dirty in close combat.

My army on the other side was seeking that very thing like no other. It had close combat written all over. So it was Sword versus Arrow.

We played 4500 points with standard 1.3.4 rule set and without modifications. For the map we randomly determined one map from the map set.

The game took place on 2017-04-09 at my new home.

1.3 Dread Elves vs. Sylvan Elves

Introduction

This is the second game on the same day again versus SH. After the Empire of Sonnstahl was defeated, the Dread Elf expedition force entered a bewitched forest. The trees whispered and the shadows played tricks, but nothing can fool the extraordinaire senses of the Dread Elves: The Sylvans are there, get ready to fight!

Again it is: 4500 points with standard rules and a randomly determined map from the map package on the slightly larger than usual gaming table in the Folterkeller.

1.3 Dread Elves vs. Empire of Sonnstahl

Introduction

Exciting news: First I got to visit my hometown again and had the opportunity to visit „The Folterkeller“ courtesy of SH my favourite opponent. That meant we had the time to play two games back2back, first my Elves versus his numerous humans from the Sonnstahl empire. Then my expedition force would need to hunt down those sneaky woody cousins they have.

But first things first: The mighty Empire versus the dreaded Elves, 4500 points with standard rules and a randomly determined map from the map package on the slightly larger than usual gaming table in the Folterkeller. Enjoy!

1.3 Dread Elves vs. Vermin Swarm

Introduction

Good news! My local T9A group is growing. SW joined us a short time ago and we quickly set up a game at my place. He brought his excellently painted Vermin Swarm to stand against my Dread Elves and the power of the dice gods.

As we started quite late in the evening, I had to save some time and only took notes of major events, so the detail of description will be a little bit lower than you may be used to. I also didn’t take pictures so often and have no army shots. Sorry!

We played a game with 4500 points following the 1.3 rules with the latest updates. For the map we used the map pack. The battle took place on 2017-01-30.

1.3 Dread Elves vs. Beast Herds

Introduction

Close to the smaller 3000 points battel against UK, we found time for another game shortly before Christmas. This time it was a full 4500 points battle with the current 1.3 rules. The map was randomized and chosen from the map pack.
