Scenes from a few 24AP HOTT games played over the weekend.
Pendraken's Fishmen fought against Evil Gong's Elephantmen. This was a classic Blades vs Spears fight and, as you can see, the Blades had the edge; there were a line of Spears in front of those Blades just before the photo was taken:
The Fishmen actually had a considerable force of Shooters making a bold dash for the Elephantmen's stronghold, but the rest of their army didn't buy them enough time. Their general was outflanked and cut down:
Epic 40K next - Space marines attacking Eldar. The main battle was between the tanks on one of the flanks. The Marines had a Chaplain assisting them (Hero), whilst the Eldar had their Avatar (Behemoth):
The Hero was outflanked and destroyed:
In the meantime the Eldar infantry advanced, and killed the Marine commander to win the game:
The victorious Eldar stayed on the defensive, this time against an Ork invasion:
Once again the vehicles fought each other on the flank, although the Orks had Boar-Boyz as well:
A subtle Ork attack hit the Eldar centre:
The Eldar Warlock was surrounded and killed - victory to the Orks:
Finally we switch to Barsoom, where the Red Martian city of Gathol was defending against an attack by the Red Martians of Manator. Gathol had Airboats, Manator had numbers:
Manator's cavalry charged before Gathol could get it's aerial navy into play:
Gatholian warriors await the charge:
A swirling melee saw one casualty - Gathol's general - end of game:
All four games were ended by an army losing its general, with honours being equally divided between the attacker and the defender.
