Andrew and I are gearing up for a cool escalation tournament that starts at 400, goes to 650, and ends at 800 with 2 games at each level. One minor twist is that every model in the lower points must be represented at the higher points levels which leads to some interesting list building. Andrew and I tested our 400 pointers to see what we thought!
You can watch the video of this game on our Youtube channel!
Andrew control 3 objectives at the end for 6 VPs. He also broke me for 1 VP. I score 2 objectives for 4 VPs, broke Andrew for 1 VP, and killed Thorin for 1 VP. Making this a minor victory for Erebor at 7-6.
Closing Thoughts: This really was a fun game! Gulavhar is just so dang flexible; but the strength of that dwarven battle line is insane! They're just an awesme profile and have "breaks" in all the right spots. Courage 4 means even with harbinger they hit that sweet "need a 7" territory. D7 (conditional 8) is amazing, F4 and S4 are just such sweet spots; especially against orcs of all flavors. This was a fun one; and also the best video battle report we've pulled off yet in my opinion! Thanks for reading!
