9th game is done, sadly my opponent had to quit the battle before it was end due real life interruption. I still decided to do a report out of it

Wow, that was a bloody game. Only 2 turns and half the armies are gone already. A shame indeed you didn't manage to finish the game.

yeah, it seems to be that in our local gaming group meta we tend to follow Marc Anthonys strategy:

Makes sense to me :) It's my usual approach as well.

Nice battle. A bit tight perhaps on a 4X4 table ;)

I find it hard to say for your list who the star of the battle was. Your army performed great all round and it worked well together. Perhaps just a great list overall. Who did you think was the main points scorer?

yeah, 40k launch was intensive in our gaming club, they started about 9 am played many game throughout the day and I went there about 10pm and there still was going game on the bigger table, thus we ended up playing in the 4x4. It certainly worked better for me than my opponent to have tight spots.

Yeah I have to say that in this game everything just seemed to work out pretty much as intended and it presented hard list for dread elves to tackle.

If I have to say what had the MVP price in this battle I would say plaguelings, due the fact that I managed to easily assemble counter charge, where I destroyed the blades of nabh, tarpitted the altar and charged executioners (in otherwords divided their ranks). they provided means to win this battle with good odds.

best point source was father of pestilence with hydra / altar / blades of nabh (with little help from tallymen ofc), but if you would consider how many points spent and received then pestilent beast would have been as they played significant role for dark acolytes failure and executioners, and reapers, and besides evocation of souls, they scored the points on their own.

Also the nauseating aura from father of pestilence really helped out to make the necessary punch to puny elves before they can strike. Also Evocation of Souls played significant role in the battle due the fact that executioners failed fear test on both rounds of combat (my opponent rolled 8, so evocation caused the fear) and they broke down on roll of 8 again.

Well, I still haven't made final call, but mostlikely I will be playing with Undying Dynasties next game. It is nice to look at their army book and just... simply... have almost everything in the book upgraded / lowered point costs etc. They seem to be really good army atleast on paper. I hope that they still have the same feeling as Tomb Kings had, but I fear that with all the buffs it might not be as satisfying to play. dunno, lets see about that in near future

Nice battle. The Undying dynasty was really brutal. The battle was pretty much already won bottom of T2, after you ook out the complete centre of the dread elf battle line. After that, it was mainly a case of keep pushing the elves to make sure they can't recover. Glad to read that the TK got some well deserved love in 9th age. They have some pretty great models and some nice background. But sub-par rules made sure they never were a popular army in WH.
