Call to Glory Campaign #4

Month two draws to a close!

Legend's Berjerker! (Blight King / Khorneholer)

As always, the rules for the campaign can be found in this Google Drive folder. In addition, you can listen to the rules explained in episode 120 and 121 of Point Hammered. The battles and results below are covered in episode 122.

Second Half of Year Two - Fought on March 26th, 2015 The Excursion point level is 200 points for Year Two. Two Excursions were fought the last campaign day. This day would kick off the third Excursion. Although Bear and Tallyman would join in the Fourth Excursion, this round was fought solely by Butcher, Legend, Journeyman and Raj.

Third Excursion
Each general next to their target. That's Raj's WIP Blight King in the lower right!
Target - The Warpstone Pits (Mutations)
Victor - The Legend
Loser - The Journeyman

The Legend conveys: Center ground scenario. Marauder horsemen were on fire with their throwing axes. Big victory for my band.       

Target - The Mountain Holds (Gold)
Victor - The Raj
Ambush Loser - The Butcher 

The Raj whispers: It was a bit of touch and go with Butcher's multiple waves of warriors and demons. Some key flanks and a timely passed break check sealed the victory.

Fourth Excursion
 By chance (or the will of Chaos), each player ended up in a one on one at their chosen targets!

Target - The Forges of Hashut (Magic Items)
Victory - The Journeyman
Loser - The Legend 

The Legend conveys: Relic scenario. Marauder horsemen didn't pull their weight this game. BIG BIG win for the Journeyman.

Target - The Crumbling South (Slaves)
Victory - The Raj
Loser - The Bear

The Bear growls: Got my teeth kicked in by Raj again as usual. Tried being jukey, but as Raj pointed out you need to hold something back for it to be jukey.

Target - The Mountain Holds (Gold)
Victory - The Tallyman
Loser - The Butcher

The Tallyman recounts: Faced the mighty Butcher in a Battle for the Artifact. Early on my Marauders ran away, but Butch didn't get many points for them. I grabbed some early kills after that, but then Butch got in started whuppin up on me with his Nurgly bros. At the end of the day though, I killed his general and my Warrior w/ standard managed to win a combat, and I took the final Tally by 10pts. Close game, but I was stoked to win something for a change!
