The latest issue of the 9th Scroll is here! You can read all about it in the news.
Sorry I’ve been silent for a while and not done any blog posts or bat reps for a couple of months. Last month I went on my Stag Do (Bachelor Party for our American friends) to Amsterdam and whilst there I slipped on some mud and managed to break my ankle! To make matters worse I waited two days before going to hospital because never in a million years did I think I had broken my ankle, I mean I slipped on some mud, how could that break a bone? So I’ve been in out an out of hospital and had to keep off the foot for a while. Sadly this meant missing TEC 18 this month and pretty much missing out on any hobby, except painting, I am getting lots of painting done at least.
Anyway, I’ve decided to write up a Bat Rep of practice game I did back in March. My Kingdom of Equitaine vs Dwarven Holds.
Duke Mounted on a Pegasus: Faith of Percival, Virtue of Might, Divine Judgement, Shield
Duke Mounted on a Barded Warhorse: General, Questing Oath, Basalt Infusion, Virtue of Renown, Shield
Paladin Mounted on a Barded Warhorse: Battle Standard Bearer, Crusaders Salvation, Virtue of Daring, Lance, Shield
Damsel Mounted on a Barded Warhorse: Wizard Master, Divination (Breath of the Lady, Know Thy Enemy, Scrying and Unerring Strike), Lightning Vambraces
13 Knights of the Realm, Full Command, Banner of Roland
6 Knights of the Realm, Musician
6 Knights of the Realm
11 Knights of the Quest, Full Command
2 x 5 Yeoman Outriders, Light Armour, Shield
5 Pegasus Knights, Skirmish, Full Command, Flaming Standard
Basically running a triple threat with three big blocks hoping that they will carry the day , do lots of killing and stay alive long enough to deny my opponent any points. Playing against Dwarves though this may be difficult, they don’t die easily and they can easily hold a charge against one unit of Knights so I’m going to need some multiple charges. The little units of Knights of the Realm are there to be a pain to my enemy and redirectors if necessary, the Yeoman are there to die.
My Opponents List:
King, Shield, Crossbow, Shield Bearers, Rune of Destruction, 2x Rune of Might
Thane, Battle Standard Bearer, Shield, Crossbow, 2x Rune of Iron
Runic Smith, Shield, 3 Battle Runes (Rune of Gleaming, Rune of Oaths, Rune of Resilience)
14 Clan Marksmen, Crossbow, Shields
14 Clan Marksmen, Crossbow, Shields
24 Greybeards, Banner
20 Deep Watch, Banner, Runic Standard of Wisdom
6 Hold Guardians
2 Attack Copter
2 Attack Copter
So my Opponent has two blocks of Dwarven infantry that I probably won’t be able to take down without a triple charge and at least 15 rounds of combat. So I’m probably best off leaving them well alone and trying to pick off everything else, especially the Grudge Busters.
The Deployment type was Frontline Clash and the Secondary Objective was Capture the Flags, a difficult objective for me as the small units of Knights of the Realm will easily be killed and I’m going to struggle to kill more than 2 of my opponents scoring units, my best hope is to wipe out the Crossbows and possibly the Greybeards if I can catch them with a multiple charge.
Dwarven Holds 1
Kingdom of Equitaine 1

Dwarven Holds 3
Kingdom of Equitaine 3
Dwarven Holds 4

Dwarven Holds 5

Now that my Ninth Age career is on hold as I can’t get to play any games at the moment and have no tournies planned until the summer (getting married in June so nothing until after that) I’m probably not going to have any more bat reps for a while. I’m going to try and set up a big game but it depends how my ankle holds out. Keep your eyes peeled anyway, I’ll have something up next month. [Read More]
