Cardtable Combat Tonight!

Posted September 9th, 2009 at 02:17 PM by kolakoski
Well met!

This week's 750 point Battle for All Time takes place at my home, as opposed to Chas'. This means that, rather than Chas' unlimited terrain and giant table map, we will be playing with the terrain from 1 SotM, 1 Marvel Master Set (sans Lab), and 1 Road to the Forgotten Forest, on a cardtable. Within these limitations, IMHO, I have created an interesting map. It is symetrical, with tiny, identical shrines (1 black, 1 white) in 2 opposing corners, to each player's left, which contain the highest points on the map. Towards the center and to the right of each player is a mostly road-hexed plateau, with a single tree, reached by going to the right corner around some water (or over or through), and climbing a short set of 2-space stairs, which are road hexes. Extending from the plateau is an aborted road, 5 hexes long, but only the width of the road, at the same level, angled back towards the center. The center of the map is swamp. The start zones are in the back and centered. Between each start zone and the swamp is another 24-hex piece, with 1 big and 1 small ruin and a tree blocking line of sight from start zone to start zone. 2 Hives (Chas gave me an extra 1 before I won my copy of SotM at Islandscape '09) are also in the swamp. This being a cardtable, the shrines are roughly 7 hexes from the closest plateaus, and the plateaus are roughly the same distance from each other. The center of the map is, of course, no man's land, easily reached by range from both plateaus. I think I'll place a glyph/treasure there, just for fun.

Chas is likely to bring Wave 9 figures - Protectors and Mohicans, with Vipers and Aubriens, although, with Chas, you never know what you will get. I could play Soldiers - Romans, 10th, etc., but I've been there, done that. As Chas has a tendency to be lacking in Special Attacks, and I am dying to get the Ninjas some play, I thought I'd go with the following for this map:

Atlaga's Assassins

110 Ninjas of the Northern Wind
110 Sentinals of Jandar
100 Syvarris
90 Atlaga
90 Empress Kiova
80 Raelin
80 Kumiko
50 Marro Warriors (feeling a bit out of place here)
40 Theracus

Empress Kiova?

You know her ability works only on Einar Kyrie, right?
Unless, of course you do house rules saying her aura affects all kyrie.

As it turned out, Chas was saving that information for an opportune moment that never came; he was slaughtered in the first game so quickly that it never became an issue.
