Afternoon #WarHamFam and #WarhammerCommunity I've been playing MESBG again. This isn't really a battle report as I only have a couple of in game pics and it was a month or so ago, so I've no real recollection of what happened. But the bottom line is we're going to a one day MESBG tournament at Warhammer World and I needed some practice. I wanted to take my Moria Goblins, so we set about making a Warband that looks something like this:
  • Durbûrz
  • 2 Goblin Captains
  • 4 Goblin Prowlers
  • 17 Goblins [of various loadouts]
  • 3 Cave Trolls [2 with hammers, 1 with spear]
So everything is my own, except for a couple of the Trolls, which I'm borrowing off Liam. I'm hoping that despite the lack of mobility and a banner that I've just got stuff I can have fun with. The Trolls are a bit 'power gamey' but it was just the easiest way to make up points and limit my unit choices so I have less to worry about.

Anyway, the first game we played was against Otty's Rohirrim, I think it's Theoden or Theodred, but whoever gives his army Fearless, while he's alive. This nullified my fear causing Trolls unfortunately. Something happened turn 1 which was pivotal. I think I'd been really lucky and managed to put some wounds on 'Theo' but Otty and Liam were able to squirm their way out of it thanks to some special rule. But whatever it was the fact Theo survived meant the rest of the game I got absolutely stuffed.

I'm not entirely sure if I also stuffed up the mission rules as well, or if I'm confusing that with a subsequent game of of 40k. However, it's a learning session, the event is the 10th July, so I have to get 'match fit'. Learn my rules and understand how to play my Goblins and how the missions work. 

I already felt a certain competitiveness with this. Losing badly was not fun, which ordinarily I have no issue with. I desperately hope this doesn't make me lose my enjoyment for MESBG. We'll just have to see...
