SAGA Iliad: Progress
We finally got to give my SAGA Iliad mod a run at the Cavs last night. Poochie ran Achilles (using Ivo the Norman from the Official lists) and I ran Odysseus (using an even more unpronounceable Welsh Hero). The outcome of that little clash can be seen here. See, it was all a ruse to get the wayward kid Achilles to do the work of posting up the batrep!
Alright, that was in Jest. Achilles pretty handily took down Odysseus and clearly displayed much better judgement overall, kept his lines together and punished the older man for being too keen to seize key pieces of terrain. It was a good test of the boards and the chosen heroes: mine reduced his starting dice (some ruse of cunning Odysseus) and Poochie's never gets tired but has to fight alone. Never getting fatigued turns out to be incredibly useful as the game goes on and I was watching key units tire as Achilles stalked about looking for his next target. Much fun was had by all anyway.
The game was also the first run of what we (the pro-painter and I) have completed of the new army:
Looking forward to my next game of this.
