The You tube channel is still been tweaked and I have to do intro video at some point. This also includes the editing of the videos and having a set image for the channel. As always, one step at a time biggrin.gif

So, a few words from my opponent

Greg and I had another very fun (and funny🤪) 2000 points game of Kings of War today. Greg fielded a Kingdoms of Men army, which had a good mix of infantry and cavalry, magic items and ranged attacks, and monster elephants. My Orcs were just Orcs with two small units of skulks (archers) which died fast. I tried using Orclings for the first time, and while not awesome, did their job. Good value for the points, but by game end, half were dead.
We rolled and got the kill scenario, meaning you get the points for each unit you kill. You must kill more than 10%( ie, 200 points than your opponent). Things started out badly and then got worse for the Orcs. Greg completely dominated the game until the end of turn 4. I’d lost two Orcling and two Skulks for no gain.
Then Greg had a bad run, and I caught up to him. From then on the fighting was intense all up and down the line, but now the Orcs had the upper hand, except for those ‘monster’ elephants of his, as shooting had decreased.
In the end, the Orcs won but it was close. A great afternoon of gaming and a good time had by all. 😄

Thanks for another report! Great to see these LotR models used for sure! I also liked the way Orclings were represented smile.gif

Quite a bloody battle and indeed, Orcs took some damage but then slowly started getting an upper hand. Well done!

Cheers!

Thank for viewing the report..still few hiccups with rules but getting there...Yeah, i had chuckle when Britt said "hey found these 15 mm orcs, and found a use for them".... :-)

So, a few words from my opponent

Greg and I had another close and hard-fought game of Kings of War today. Lots of fun and laughs as well. While we both used 2000 points of the Kingdoms of Men army list, Greg had more Knights and magic artefacts, while I had one more monster and a horde of archers. We played the “Pillage” scenario, six counters placed over the board, you getting a point for each one you control. Greg moved first.
The game went a full seven turns, one more than usual. We were both in bad shape by that turn, and each of us had two objective tokens. Looked like a draw, but Greg reread the victory conditions, and we had both failed to realise that monsters could also control objective tokens. I had one Giant near the token in the river, thereby gaining it and a very questionable victory.😳.
Great game and great fun. Don’t know if I’ll field that horde of bow next week though. It only got off one shot before it died! 😢


Oh well, live and learn…
Cheers

Brief write up from Britt on the game below…

Greg and I had another exciting 2000 points Kings of War battle today. He fielded the Varangur while I used a Kingdoms of Men army. We had a most enjoyable time even though his neighbor’s lawn mower didn’t help the sound quality of his filming for a while😳.

Greg moved first, but largely held position and fired spells and fireballs at me. I moved forward, and initially was in the lead, but he hung in there, and by games end I had only two units left on the board. The score was Varangur 3, KoM 1 and I was lucky to get that. Had we gone into extra turns; I’d have been wiped out completely! 😖

Decisive victory to Greg, who certainly earned it. Lots of fun and I’m looking forward to next week’s game! 🥳

Few words from Britt:

Greg and I had another Kings of War, 2000 points each, game today. This is easily one of the closest, and certainly the bloodiest, KoW game I’ve ever played! 👍
Greg had about a dozen units plus heroes, I had 13 plus Flag bearers. At game end on turn six, I had only two Flag Bearers and no units left while Greg had only 1 unit left plus some heroes. Talk about blood and guts😄!
Great game and great fun. Greg videoed the whole bloody spectacle.

Hi ALL,

We had a Kings of War game, on Saturday night on a 6’ x 8’ table, 4000 points per side. I and Alan commanded the Kingdoms of Men army while Trent and Britt played the Undead. The scenario was “Control”, where victory is determined by the number of 2’x2’ areas your side control, with 12 up for grabs.

Few words from Britt...
We had another hard fought, do or die, KoW battle today between Trent’s Varangur and my Orcs. Unfortunately, it was my Orcs that did most of the dieing. 😩
While Greg GMed and made a video of this titanic struggle, Trent and I made our plans. Varangur have better Infantry, Cavalry, and Artillery than just about anyone. They’re also horribly expensive, meaning Trent would have a smaller force but much better man for man. He had to worry about me getting behind or flanking him while I had to find a way to do this. I didn’t 😖.

While more numerous than the Varangur, the Orcs had their light troops destroyed before the heavier ones could get in position. In truth, Trent even managed to deftly get on two of my units flanks with disastrous results for me.I had lost far more units, but as we were playing a loot scenario, I had the only points on turn 5. Then it all came apart turn 6 as Trent crushed my two loot carrying units, and three Flaggers, captured their loot and killed the last Orc unit. Decisive Varangur victory! 🎇🎆🎇🎆

All in all, a very good game. Trent certainly earned his victory, and the whole morning was a lot of fun and laughter, skill full tactics and regrettable blunders. 😁

No Problem...

Yes biggrin.gif . I've been hoping more would be up on their blog now, on want they looking at changing or tweaking...so have hold off on buying anything new, apart from buying my oldest Lothr elves... biggrin.gif

....
Swordmaster
I hope we can learn a bit more soon. At this stage I think the major changes are not necessary but we have to wait and see. My plan is to try and adapt the army I usually play with so that I can still have a chance to paint/model units I intended to do. smile.gif

Hi ALL,

Another game of Kings of War 2000 points, Undead played by Greg and Brotherhood played by Britt. We played the scenario where the battlefield is broken up into six sectors, and you get points for each sector.

I gather we did the few things wrong.
