Things have not been too flash energy/timewise to sit down and do extra things on the laptop in the last couple of weeks, so this fell by the wayside. However, I could not fairly let the chance to chronicle Jason's victory pass by - lest some challenge the balance of this totally unbiased, fair, serious, and irreproachable historical chronicle. I think 'trendline' characterisation of the Impetvs record was a fair call by Imperial Intelligence though.
The battle was 1000pts, using RAW lists and no house rules. This pitted my Ersatz Isengard (last seen in the previous WOTR battle), based on the Dunlending battlehost vs Jason's more authentic interpretation, led by the infamous Beige Wizard. Since this was silly RAW - there was a beast caller in there too. In the usual course of things, he would moot the idea of allying in a spell casting Epic, and I would tell him to stop being sad.
Nice work Jason, that was pretty decisive eh? Now I have finally done the report, we will have to play again. Maybe the forces of good should actually get an outing.
I am not to sure what the story is with NATCON WOTR is at this stage. I am sure the people who have told me they will attend will sign up at some point. However, no one that I had been in touch with from out of town has particularly like the idea of going to Chch at the moment. It is actually not that bad, but then I guess that is in comparison to how it was immediately after the quake. Still, apart from really crappy roads, and some areas being 'no go', the place works well.
As a final note, someone has suggested that the line in the Battlehosts book stating that additional heroes may not be included in the battlehost may actually be a statement with a meaning beyond armybuilding. You may be supposed to never put another hero in there. If this is so (and it would sort out the Gorgoroth Orcs nicely!), then I would need to rethink this force. At the moment there is only one non-battlehost formation in there, which is quite the risk for any other heroes I should take...
