Kerstan met up as well and the three of us played several games of Star Wars. The Scribe had the three figures from the basic set: one TIE fighter, one TIE Interceptor, and one X-Wing.
Later, we played some Hordes of the Things. Scribe and I tried to convert Kerstan to the game and we may have succeeded. It is just so easy to put together an army quickly and Kerstan has plenty to 28mm figures to work with.
Game 1: Scribe took his flaming 'Sons of Muspel' army against my 'League of the Scarlet Falcon'. He was the defender and setup a large water hazard to disrupt my magician.
Game 2: we left the terrain in place. He switched to the Nightmare Legion army. I sent my fastest units (Riders, Magician, Hero-General) around a large forest. They got isolated there and were cut down by shooters.
Game 3: I switched to defender and mixed up the terrain a bit. I removed the water. This time I charged the Skull Chukka Artillery with my Hero-General; completely forgetting that Heroes are quick-kills to the Artillery. My Hero died glorious and brought that battle to a quick end. We decided to continue play without the Hero. The battle continued with a traditional battle line forming and both sides fighting out in the open. Sadly, my magician rolled a second 'one' result and was turned into a frog!
Overall, an excellent Saturday afternoon of games.
