We actually had two games side by side.. four players on one table (of which I took no photos - sorry!), and on our table Quint and Trev played the halves of a Mog war band sandwich!
I have cobbled together a few war band ideas from the pool of figures, but would really like to 'theme' something a little more. For now, I picked the following little war band..
Albomorious the Shit Sigilist with his Apprentice, Ulfric the Mule.. supported by Helga, a 'man' at arms, two thieves in the form of Ned and Albert, street urchins taken into Albamorious' care.. a couple of infantrymen to protect the wizard, and a crossbowman.
Not the best war band, with only six figures, and I hadn't spent all my gold either.. but the game night was about trying out the rules and having fun.
|James Strange Tower of magical Oddness drew many smutty remarks|
The three way game was a hoot.. needless to say, my little band got squashed.. for some reason the children drew a lot of fire and being in the middle between the two other bands didn't help.
|My crossbowman picks out a target|
|Helga about to get trampled by Quint's animated Large Construct|
I had one moment of hope which was quickly doused too.. A natural 20 (Critical double damage) rolled by my crossbowman, shooting at Quint's wizard. What did he roll to counter? Yep, a natural 20. (Not entirely clear in the book whether this should have been an automatic hit anyway, but all very dramatic!)
So, still unsure about the longevity of this game.. but as a fun diversion it's a thumbs up.
