Alright, yesterday I played a battle versus Lizardmen and Beastmen with an undead orc horde. All models had undead special rules on my side, goblins take an extra d6 wounds from combat resolution, and all of my models had -2 leadership, and all my models were braindead except heros (and lords), no animosity. Also, if a miscast is rolled, always roll on the orc table, that is still were they get their magic from after all.
For getting spells I rolled two diffrent colored dice and could choose wether I want the spell from VC or OnG or Invocation of Gork:
Invocation of gork 3+/8+/11+
1st power level: raise d6 orcs or d6+3 goblins in one friendly undead orc unit within 8".
2nd power level: raise 2d6 orcs or 2d6+3 goblins at one point on the table within 16", or these models may join a unit within 16".
3rd power level: raise 3d6 orcs, 2d6 black orcs, or 3d6+3 goblins within 24". These models may also join a pre-existing unit.
Suffice to say, we were playing a 500 point battle, they each had 250 points. We wanted to see the hockey game so we finished quick. The first few turns I doubled my army size with two new orc units, and in the next few, totally wiped out the beastmen player. It looked like a last stand for the lizardmen kroxigors and skink chief leading them when my shaman miscast, rolled a 1 on the table, and exploded. Every unit in my army suffered at least 5 wounds, which is alot in a 500 point battle. I lost the battle in the next turn, where all my units died with bad rolls on the leadership, until it was a last stand with a single night goblin champion, who was crushed by 3 kroxigors great axes.
I think these rules were pretty balanced, you either get a big win, or a big loss.
Interesting results, but I think we need the rules to be more solid before we can do very effective playtesting.
It sounds like an interesting game though.
Yah I know, but I think that it was alot of fun. All my friends thought it was fun when my necromancer orc conversion's head exploded.
Rolled a 1 on the miscast table.... <_<
Intresting results, but just like zorg we need to wait a little bit before we can start the real playtesting.
Yah sure, Just file these results away for later...
