  • Hello



    I’m back after the broken ankle. I’m pretty much back to normal now so I was finally able to get a game of ninth age in so I set a game against a friend to dust off my ‘skills’ and get back on it. I used my Kingdom of Equitaine and my list looked like this:



    • Duke (General), Barded Warhorse, Virtue of Might, Divine Judgement, Crusader’s Salvation, Potion of Swiftness, Shield = 535
    • Paladin, Barded Warhorse, Virtue of Daring, Battle Standard Bearer, Wyrmwood Core, Basalt Infusion, Shield = 365
    • Damsel, Wizard Master, Druidism, Barded Warhorse, Wafers of Penitence = 410
    • 15 Knight Aspirants, Full Command = 670
    • 12 Knight of the Realm, Full Command = 608
    • 16 Bowmen, Musician = 210
    • 16 Crossbowmen = 238
    • 12 Knights of the Quest, Full Command = 630
    • 2 x 5 Yeoman Outriders, Shields and Light Armour = 270
    • 2 x Trebuchets = 560



    I’ve had some crossbowmen knocking about for a few years now and have never used them so this was basically an excuse to get them out an see how they fair. Now that Knight Errants are a reasonable price again I had to take them and I’m still persevering with the Questing Knights but I have yet to be impressed with them. I’ve got 3 main threats with the 3 big blocks of knights. I’ve taken a fairly shooty army to hopefully draw my opponent to me, weaken up any big blocks with the Trebuchets and then smash them off with the knights. That’s the plan at least.



    My opponent is using the Empire of Sonnstahl and his list:

    • Marshall (General), Great Tactician, Death Warrant, Imperial Seal, Lucky Charm
    • Marshall, Battle Standard Bearer, Dusk Forged, Black Steel, Shield
    • Wizard mounted on an Arcane Engine, Wizard Master, Basalt Infusion
    • Prelate, Plate Armour, Shield
    • Prelate, Plate Armour, Shield
    • 45 Heavy Infantry, Halberds, Full Command
    • 18 Light Infantry, Crossbows, Standard and Musician, Support Unit
    • 18 Light Infantry, Handguns, Standard and Musician, Support Unit
    • 33 Imperial Guard, Great Weapon, Full Command, Household Standard
    • 2 x 6 Reiters, Brace of Pistols
    • 2 x 3 Knights of the Sun Griffon, Musician

    So my opponent has a general with discipline of 10 and an 18” range on it with the Household Standard so I’m not expecting them to do a lot of fleeing. I hate the Reiters so I will definitely be trying to shoot them down with the Bowmen, their pistols are lethal against my knights and despite being chaff they cannot be underestimated. My number most hated unit in the Empire book though is the Arcane Engine with Arcane Shield, the -1 to hit on all units with 6” will severely limit my ability to get kills and I don’t need any help normally to rubber lance so that will just add to my frustration. It’s also got the Wizard on it so I’d like to Treb that if I can but I should be sensible and go for the Imperial Guard, weaken them up and then smash them off (I’m not sensible by the way). The Sun Griffons always give me a worry, they can’t be underestimated either, a unit of just 3 of them can put a severe dent in my units, even if I charge them.



    We roll for scenario and get Marching Columns, one I’ve not had the pleasure of playing, the secondary objective is Breakthrough. For my spells I pick Breath of the Lady, Summer Growth, Master of Earth and Stone Skin. I decided to not pick The Oaken Throne as it takes up one of my spell slots and I generally find it wastes dice as opponents let it through with the aim of dispelling everything else. Plus with taking the Hereditary spell it would only leave me with 2 other spells if I took it. I wanted to take Magical Heirloom, which would have gotten me around this problem, but I ran out of points.
