Well, I've been epically busy for the last couple of weeks, and I've finally gotten some down time to do my WFO games. So sorry about the non-action, I'm ready to get this thing rolling again!

A few points on the shooting Bishop: for one, Trebuchets + cannons auto-hit both the mount and the rider, so we should work out wound rolls on the Plague Priest for both the direct hit from the Treb and the cannon. Doubt he'll survive both of those. Also, the Rocket Battery has a rule called "inaccurate," where you place the template initially, then roll the artillery dice. The template moves that many inches directly away from the artillery piece. Once its position has been established, you roll for full-fledged scatter. So, I think I'm gonna roll for that now on the off chance that it doesn't completely miss the Hydra. Odds still aren't good though, but I may as well see what happens...

Nope, still looks like a complete miss. Also, I'll roll to-wound against the Plague Priest. I think both Trebs and cannons are S10? If not, correct me later, but I'm gonna do 2 up wound rolls for him...

The Trebuchet smacks him in the face. If he has a ward save, he should take it before I roll multiple wounds.

Yeah, Trebs are S5 (10 under the hole).

Glad you wandered in to catch the mistakes. I don't do warmachines often... and firing at multi-part models with them even less :D

No prob! :thumbsup: So, should we move on to Turn 1 then? Or do Sanai and Zanos get to do pre-game shooting as well?

Oh, and looking at the army list, I'm pretty sure the Plague Priest doesn't have a ward save, so he'll take D6 wounds on the chin. Rolling...

Not sure where, "praying" fit into the pre-game sequence... but I'll be doing that :D

No prob Zanos. It's just nice to see the game starting to move now. I'm taking a really long weekend this weekend (I'm off Fri, Sat, Sun, Mon and Tues :D ) So, hopefully the game keeps moving along.

Oh yeah, that's a good point. I wonder how Bretonnian praying works in this whole scheme. Pretty sure we get first turn automatically, which seems to totally conflict with the automatic last turn forced on you by the prayers...

It's normally in lieu of rolling to go first... which basically allows the other player to choose.

However, if the game sequence/scenario has a fixed order... I don't think that it would change anything...

I think the attackers go first which goes perfectly with the praying. Also, agreed with bishop, I'm happy to see it moving :D

The attackers do indeed have their first turn now. *Jumps out of cover and yells* "CHAAAAARGGGGEE!" *Jumps back behind cover and hides*

Should I just bring on the Knights now? :clown:

You guys seem to be growing roots, or swimming in molasses :D

Perhaps we should take a few free rounds of shooting? And maybe with a bonus to our BS because they're all standing still. xD

I think we're still arguing on which one of us wants to charge first. We ARE the two most treacherous armies in the world, I guess...
