Kings of War Escalation League – Game #1 – 500pts

From Dave G.’s “Warpegs” forum:

A war party has gained followers in Letharac and has set out into the Ardovikian Plain with a sizeable force. Perhaps this is the start of a new kingdom, but for now a good nights sleep after a long march is in order. Having found a suitable place to set up camp for the night, the party sets in for a solid nights rest. Sadly, the rest tonight is interrupted as the alarm is raised when the moon is still high overhead, something is moving through the treeline and will be upon you shortly!

I was defending the building in the middle of the table… Chris was attacking from two opposite sides.

The goal was to reduce the opposing player’s side to 50% of their force…

The initial setup (4×4 table) per the scenario.
Defender (me!) initial deployment (1x Regiment of Pike, 1x Regiment of Crossbow, 2x Troops of Knights).
Chris’s deployment and my first turn. Unfortunately, the size of the table, and the guesswork in setting up the Crossbows meant that they couldn’t fire after needing to pivot to face a target.
Chris’s charges (and his magic-user’s enhancement of his forces). Second half of the first turn…
First blood! One of my troops of knights is routed.
Second turn – counter charges! Not enough to turn things around, though…
And the final blow – my unit of Pikes is routed. Chris takes the game!

Unpainted figs – yeah, I know…

    1. So far, quite a bit. It plays very fast (I’ve played a couple of games at 500pts, and they both took an hour or less – with limited rules familiarity) , and since it doesn’t rely on individual figure basing (it’s about units, not individual troops), there’s a lot of latitude to what figures to use and how to arrange them on a unit base. I’ve seen some really impressive “diorama” style units put together.

      I’m looking forward to playing more games in the league and getting into some of the higher point values games.
