BBB Battle Reports

Postby thorhak » Mon Nov 08, 2010 3:05 am

So here they are. I need to go back and add my opponents actual army lists, and figure out the final statistics for Blast, my Ballista, but without further adieu....

Game 1/Seize the Artifact against Tyler(monty on the AWC Forums)
So monty is a super nice guy, who has experience and knows the game, but this was his first Tournament or GT. His army should have shredded me. It was Ithilien allied w/ the Grey CO. and due to the inclusion of such had over 30 bows, not to mention Faramir (Ranger version), Madril, and Damrod plus a good number of Gondorians, half w/ spears.

Seeing his army, and knowing the Scenario is Anti-Dwarven, I set-up defensively spreading my army equally across the Board knowing that I simply can not cover distances quickly despite what Gimli says! lol Then the shock came...he set-up and played defensively too?!?!?!

In one corner, he had 15 Rangers and Grey CO. that he quickly moved 3-4 inches into a heavily wooded terrain piece. In the other corner, he moved 14 Rangers and Grey CO in to rocky out-cropping that included a kick ass tunnel. The center was his Gondorians and Faramir, uninhibited with no terrain blocking their path to the Artifact, and yet he moved them 3" each turn keeping them in line the Archers.

So my strategy was decided early. Seeing I was going to get to the Artifact uncontested, I moved Dain and the bulk of my army that way. My Ballista was lined-up on the same side of the table as the rocky out-cropping w/ his 14 Rangers/Grey CO. and would focus on whittling down those numbers. I continued to advance a small number of Dwarves up the other flank, giving the Rangers/Grey CO in the woods something to shoot at. My plan: once Dain gets the Artifact, (which he did, and was able to dig it up his 1st try) he would flank right through the tunnel and off the Board...and that's exactly what happened.

Once Dain got the artifact, his Gondorians were a turn away from hitting my main force. That was fine. I left the majority of my main force to mingle with them, taking the "meat and potatoes" IG and KG to clear the tunnel and escort Dain off the table. Blast had done his job, by the time Dain and co. had gotten to the rocky out-cropping there were only 3 Rangers in the tunnel, and 4 outside - including Damrod but these were easily dispatched by Dain's escort. The key though to my victory was that Tyler left the Rangers in the Woods 1 turn too long. The Dwarves I had left on the other flank kept his attention just long enough. Having said that, the last turn of the game proved very exciting. The "long-legs" from the woods sprinted to the other flank, and w/ a Grey CO. Ranger he called a heroic move allowing him to tie-up most of Dain's escort and get two Rangers in combat w/ Dain. In my movement phase, I was able to peel-off one of the Rangers in combat w/ Dain using an IG, and then used a second IG to join Dain's fight. In the combat phase, I called a heroic combat, won and after consulting Brent to make sure I didn't have to move into combat, moved Dain off the Board for a Major Victory.

I am keeping official statistics of Blast, and will post these later tonight after rounds 4 and 5. My first 3 opponents have told me, not only has Blast been a killing machine (pun intended) but it's mere presence has screwed with their strategy. I really am having a Blast with this army!

(Thorhak pumping right arm to the sky with a clenched fist)

M A L B E T H!!!

In the second round, I played what could be one of my most fun/favorite GT games ever - the only thing that could have made it better was if I wasn't sober at that time. Having said that, I think I'll have another beer! lol

Anyway, my opponent was Alex. Alex is really fun dude, full of energy and says he only has two objectives for a GT: to win one game, and to have fun. I believe him, (and he accomplished both in the 1st day, so kudos Alex!) Alex usually pairs with Jeremy (BostonNazgul) at ACON and the pair have won best Army a couple of times, so again an experienced player with another bad ass army: Arnor featuring Areduvi, Malbeth, a swarm of Rangers and 2 Grey CO., the rest being warriors ALL w/ spears and shield. OUCH!!! Gary Lane and Tim Hixon played this army at ACON a while back and were near unbeatable...

The scenario: Contest of Champions. The board, Hobbiton w/ one big ass lane right down the center of the Board marked-off by the hedges and walls lining it...Brent and Frank got the idea off Aaron's "Bree" board that he made for MitM. Each quad then had a hobbit hole in it.

We both deployed as much of our army in the center lane. He placed all of his Rangers on top of one hobbit hole, and I placed Blast and crew on a terrain piece with some woods for little for protection. The fun began right way. Jocularity flowed as we recounted tales from past ACONs - particularly my inebriated state the ACON this past year. When we got to rolling for priority for the 1st turn, is when I first noticed...he left Areduvi front and center, totally exposed for a Ballista shot. I said, "Dude, Areduvi...really?" and he said, "I'm just here to have some fun!" I won priority and in my first shooting phase, put Areduvi in Blast's sights...I rolled a "6" to hit...I rolled a "5" to scatter and used a point of Might to make the shot "Dead On". I needed a 4 to wound and auto-kill Areduvi, his Champion - and rolled a "4". His King was Dead, 1st round!!!...Oh, wait...what's that...Malbeth's Seer rule...what's that...oh, if Malbeth rolls a "5" or "6" he can save any model within 6" of him...Alex rolled a 6, and unfortunately for me, this became the theme of the game. However, until lines clashed at the center of the table, Areduvi assumed a position in the 3rd rank...

So our troops quickly, or should I say his troops moved quickly up the middle and we joined combat. As this happened and keeping with our, "Dude let's just have fun" theme, we then decided let's let our Champions fight it out. Areduvi, coming from the 3rd rank swung out to my left flank and was ready and waiting for a Dain charge. Dain, on his trip to Areduvi however was inhibited by the presence of 2 Arnor warriors, which he dispatched and made the tally 2-0 after Malbeth failed to save them - and would be some of Malbeth's few misses.

The rest of the game went like this. Dain wins the fight. Dain kills Areduvi. Malbeth saves Areduvi. No joke. Dain killed Areduvi a total of 4 times, the 4th being the one and only time Malbeth failed to save him. For the record, Malbeth saved 10/16 attempts which discouraged my Dwarves and resulted in the other part of the story. Alex' force routed, if not decimated my Dwarves. My force broke with 15-20 minutes left in the game, and was losing 2-3 models each round due to attrition from such. Having all warriors equipped with spears he had the upperhand in most fights, and those he lost - Hey! No problem: M A L B E T H!!!.

Once our front lines locked in combat, Alex moved his host of Rangers off the Hobbit Hole, moving full-pace to lock swords and support Areduvi. I had a small contingent of warriors on that flank that he quickly mowed down, but while he dealt with them I peeled-off my Siege Capt. to support that flank. That proved to be my saving grace as Thorhak was able to hold off the charge of Rangers, we're talking at least 10, for 2-3 rounds, preventing those Rangers from supporting Areduvi in his cage match with Dain.

The end result: Areduvi dead, making Dain's kill total 4, while Areduvi mustered a single kill. On the other side of the coin, my force decimated and broken we learned to fear the Arnorians and will curse the name of Malbeth for the rest of time! lol I achieved a minor victory for having more kills, but being broken.

Again, this was one of my funnest games ever and would glady face-off against Alex sans Malbeth again!

So continuing on with the 3rd game on Sat., I was matched against Frank Brown, aka febber, playing Domination scenario. Now Frank can get quite anxious at times, and my Ballista was striking fear in his heart as evidenced by his opening moves. Unfortunately, what separates a good player from a great player is being able to capitalize on such occurrences, and while I tried, I got caught up in the action, over-stepped, Frank realized my error, and capitalized on that...but enough generalizations, let's get to the specifics.

So this was a Harad or Easterling themed board, and other than huts in each quad, and 1-2 oasis and small rocky outcroppings, the board was pretty sparse - great for Ballista action. Now in my deployment, I had Frank screaming FOUL!!!! I placed my Ballista, crew, siege Capt, plus a warrior w/ shield and Ranger all on top of the tent in my corner (SW). It drew the attention of both Brent and Jaime, but after a few mutterings, it was decided that it was allowable, (note, I didn't say "fair" lol)!

We both deployed in an arc fashion and the fun began. And in continuing with the theme from prior games, my 1st Ballista shot took off Dain's head, or should I say glanced-off Dain's face as Frank had to spend 2 Fate points to save him. That had Frank piping! Dain was escorting a force to the quad in the SE corner from where I was standing, and I had sent an equally sized force sans heroes to counter. As the game continued, I repeatedly targeted Dain hitting him a couple more times but never wounding again, however I was able to thin Frank's force deployed to this quad w/ ballista fire to the point where he hid Dain and CO. either IN or behind the hut in that quad - of course springing them at the exact perfect time...but more of that later.

The other action occurred in the NW corner from where I was standing. Initially I had deployed a force of 8 or so Dwarves in that direction, and had another force heading to the middle of the table. Once Frank declared himself, dedicating a large part of his army to the SE corner described above, I swung my force that was heading to the middle of the Board back to the NE corner. Frank was caught and would take 2-3 turns to compensate. Once he saw my Ballista starting to whittle the number of troops heading to the SE corner, he split-off a number of them, including the banner and redirected them to the NE corner. This was my chance. I quickly took the marker in the NE corner uncontested. Frank knew until he had reinforcements, his dwarves w/ bows would not be able to stage a coup - even if Balin led the charge. And then my mistake. As Frank reformed his line to make the pending charge, he exposed Balin, and I took the bait hard...I love champion vs. champion battles to a fault. I know a champion is much more useful and effective and efficient at killing rank n' file troops, but no matter how hard I try, I just can't pass up the opportunity for an battle of epic proportions. So I threw Dain into Balin, but knowing Frank had 10+ dwarves w/ bow as well as other troops to support, I couldn't leave my Hero unsupported - so I threw everything I had at him. And then it happened...my dice went cold, I mean ice cold. And coincidentally, Frank couldn't fail a wound roll if he tried. Dain did win the first fight against Balin, and Balin had to use all of his Might to save him, but my numbers thinned quickly and while Dain and Balin continued their useless slap fight, Frank took control of the objective in the NE corner.

It was at that time that Frank's Dain in the SE corner came out of hiding,we had equal numbers, but Dain called a heroic combat dispatching enough of my troops to have numerical advantage in that corner as well, and with that time was called and Frank had achieved a Minor Victory.

Again, as I stated earlier, when you meet up with the "Ringer"s, you simply can't make mistakes. They know and will exploit them to their advantage, and often this is enough to swing a battle, or a game. Cheers, Frank!

So moving to Sun...

Going into Sun., I had a Major Victory(20), a Minor Victory(15) and a Minor Loss(7) for a total or 42 points placing me around 6th or 7th overall. My game 4 matchup was announced, John Hess, aka Yakthor. Unfortunately, John was no where to be found, and we had a narrow window to complete the Tourney as the Bunker closed a 6PM. So I agreed to play Matthew who was in dead last having 3 major losses from Sat. (Brent was set to play against him using the "Ringer" army). Great you'd think, right? WRONG!!!! The scenario was Reconnoitre, which is 100% dependent on speed as you're simply trying to get as many of your models off the table edge as possible. Young Matthew featured a Gondorian force with 12 mounted Citadel Guards! What was a Dwarf to do??? I know - "Blast" them! And that's just what I did, and in fact, my efficiency proved to be my Achilles heal.

Matthew won deployment, fortunately, and placed 6 cav on his far left flank, 3 cav in the middle and 3 more on his R flank. He filled the middle w/ Faramir the Ranger and a host Men of Gondor, about half w/ spear. Note, one of the mtd. CG on his L flank was Beregond.

Feeling defeated already, I simply spread my Dwarves out the best I could placing the Ballista and crew to my L, with an additional 3 warriors and KG further L. The bulk of my force, including Dain was front and center, and a contingent of warriors, KG, IG 3 Rangers were to my far R. Also to the R I placed 4 models behind a Rohan fashioned hut for future considerations which ended-up paying huge dividends, but in the end not enough...

I opened the 1st round again with a Blast and took out 2 of the cav on Matts' far L. In the second round he had the 3 cav. lined up nicely in single-file fashion as they darted in-between 2 Rohan huts. And with a Blast, 2 more were killed. The cav in the middle headed straight across the Board unscathed despite several Rangers directing unfriendly fire in their direction. Blast and the Rangers I deployed my far R continued to kill or dismount the remaining 4 cav on that side of the Board, and soon all he had left was the middle 3. 2 were engaged, but by this time Faramir and his Gondorians had made their way across the table, and he outnumbered me 2-1. The 3rd cav. model he had placed in the center exited the table. And guess what, here's where I made another HUGE mistake. Now I make the excuse that I hadn't played this scenario since ACON in April, but that's my own damn fault. Matthew wisely started setting-up fights that he could LOSE!!! I thought it was his inexperience giving he had major losses for his first 3 games, but I was gravely mistaken. I took the bait and in two turns, broke him and only need 7 more models til he would be reduced to 25% thereby meeting Major Victory conditions. I went into turtle mode.

The remainder of the game, I would engage what I could w/ Dwarves w/ shields and have them shield. Anything else would run backwards. Now I do have to say I had a glimmer of hope. So efficient was my Killing Machine Dwarves that I suddenly found 5-6 dwarves on my far L flank completely uncontested! Problem was that the closest was 22 inches or 5 turns away from getting of Matt's table edge. I had to go a minimum of 5 turns w/o killing 7 Gondorians, or having his Gondorians fail a Courage test. I also had to keep him from getting any other models off the Board. He did have a horn blower and this helped me a couple of times, boosting his courage just enough to pass the test. Moreover, he was making nearly every Courage roll. He threw a Gondorian into a fight w/ Thorhak the Master Siege Engineer. Thorhak won the battle and would have wounded the poor soul, but instead a point of Might was used to DECREASE the wound roll by one thereby making it a failed attempt.

But in the end, on IG could stand the slap fight no longer and killed one more Gondorian, reducing Matt's force to 25% and handing him the Major Victory. My IG was 2 inches/one turn away from getting off the table. And in two turns I would have had 4 more...so close...so very, very close. It was a great game, and I stood humbled by his awesomeness. Well done Matt!!!

Ok, 5th game. My record was 2 wins and 2 losses, which I was quite pleased with, but still wanted more...wanted to go out on a good note, hungry for a victory. The scenario was Meeting Engagement. My opponent, John Humphreys, and his army...Grey CO. with 5 Rangers of the North, 20 rangers (so 25 bows). Oh, and Gandalf the Grey and Gwaihir! The board had some GW trees, the removable kind, and a couple rocky outcroppings. I knew the game was going to be decided by how many Dwarves he killed as I crossed the Board to engage him in contact. I wasn't feeling to good about my chances...

Deployment was unexciting...my Ballista to my left center,small contingents of IG, KG, warriors and Rangers to the far left & far right. The bulk of my army front and center. John positioned 8 rangers and 2 RotN to his far right and center. Gandalf and his remaining RotN and rangers were to his far left behind a rocky outcropping. Gwaihir was right/center.

The first few rounds Gandalf remained hidden, casting Blinding light followed by terrifying Aura. By the third round, my center troops had advanced far enough that I couldn't target Gandalf w/ a Ballista shot if I wanted to. Instead I poked some holes in his center, killing twice, and blasting Rangers backwards a few inches twice. Gwaihir was steaming down my left flank, and I had a suspicion what his intentions were...take out the Ballista. John was the first to attempt such....Fortunately for me, John's RotN were taking the day off, missing on most of their shots or wound rolls, but with the volume of fire I was facing, I was losing 1-2 models each round. Once I got the bulk of my army to the middle of the Board, I stopped advancing my Rangers, and began returning unfriendly fire, and w/ his squishy defense 4 Rangers, I was having success at least equal to his.

Back to Gwaihir...he flew over my contingent on my left flank, but then lost priority and had to burn it's only point of Might to keep from being trapped. However, I got priority again the next turn and was able to get three models in combat with him trapping him (Gwaihir counts as terrifying) and putting a wound on him. John then got priority and was able to complete the charge into my 2 siege crewmen, but Thorhak my siege capt was able to peel-off, pass his courage test and trap him...Gwaihir went down after two rounds of this.

Now, I have to compliment John on his playing style. As my Dwarves charged across the board, casualties were mounting, and he could have very easily retreated a few inches each turn and continue the archery onslaught. Instead, he stood and ground and we fought. His RotN and rangers that initially had moved into the woods on his far right had made their way through. Some continued down his right flank to engage the contingent Gwaihir had flown over, and some moved towards the center to exchange rounds of fire w/ the 4 rangers I had parked there. The hand-to-hand fighting heavily favored dwarves, and soon he was broken but with so many heroes on the Board passing courage tests was easy and he lost none to attrition from that regard.

On my right, the contingent I had placed there was able to track down Gandalf and the 5 rangers/RotN he accompanied. Gandalf got Sorcerous blast off 3-4 times, and despite having 2-3 kills with each I think I only lost one model to the spell. At this point my strategy was simple. Forget engaging Gandalf, take out the rangers with D4 and no fate as opposed to the RotN. With this strategy things were going very well. Back in the center, Dain fought 2 heroic combats killing 2 models each time. In the second to last round, Gandalf had made his way to within 12" of Dain and I thought for sure Dain would suffer from Immobilization the rest of the game, however, John couldn't pass up one more attempt to Sorcerous Balst 3 models, and again he knocked down 3 models, but got no kills.

In the end, once we engaged in combat, his Rangers were no match for my Dwarves and I achieved a Major Victory. I will go back and amend these reports to include my opponents actual lists. I also will put together some statistics on Blast's effectiveness - which I was very pleased with, and surprised. Again, the unforeseen advantage with the siege engine is that it caused "Fear". Not in making models pass Courage tests, but rather by making Generals alter theit normal strategies, primarily due to their need to hide their leaders! lol

I had a Blast, as I knew I would. I came to BBB to have fun, and that was definitively accomplished. I don't know if I'd change this army, it was a beautiful, efficient killing machine. I need some serious practice in Reconnoitre! lol Great event Brent...I'll be back next year, hopefully accompanied by some other Denver players! Cheers!!

Oh, after the 4th round Brent had everyone put their army on display for the "Favorite Army" vote. Jaime and John Humphreys tied, and the tie went to Jaime. I took pics of all the armies during this time and will post them tomorrow. I took pics during my 1st game, and John Humphreys did during our 5th, so hopefully he post these as well.

Thanks for the great time everyone! See ya' next year...and Happy Birthday Bilbo! :twisted:

Great reports Keith and it sounds like you played very well (although with a bit of bad luck in a few games). Wish I could have been there and we could have played again. Sounds like you have come a long way since we played last ;-)

That's exactly what happened to me after I had my first taste of tournament style LOTR SBG action at the Baltimore GT in 2005! :twisted:

I'll post the pics from our game later today!

Well remember, on the Sunday after the 2008 ACON I attended a full day
of the Hixon & Lane School of Wargaming Arts. My eyes were opened to the
tactical implications that aren't self-evident in knowing just the rules as per TOR.

My game has improved exponentially since that event! lol :twisted:

Keith - thanks for taking the time to right up your battle reports. I really enjoy reading them. Having the freedom to walk around during day 1 I got to see some of your greatest moments (or were those defeats). My memories from you and this event are MALBETH!!! I was there when Ardevui was killed at least twice. and then there was Dain v Dain battle for Domination. For the first 90 minutes of the game passed by the table and Keith hadn't taken a single causulty. I come back 15 minutes later and its like he's got 10 dead dwarves.


The look of your ballista on top of those tents was so comical. However, lest no one challenge you, this was completely legal and Frank while he was giving you a hard time, really was just joking around. You are just lucky those drunk dwarves didn't fall through the hole in the top of the tent!

Yeah, I know while he was trying to just give me a good ribbing, what he really was doing was acknowledging my crafty tactical genius...having a Ballista elevated that high was just deadly.

As for the drunken dwarves, they didn't have to worry about falling through the hole, they kept sliding off the side!!...and unfortunately a couple have the battle scars to remember it! lol :twisted:

...and as far as Battle Reports go...

I've learned if you don't do them right away, details get blurred, enthusiasm is lost and they end up never materializing.

So everyone else...GET TO IT - N O W !!! :twisted:

WHile your reports are nicely written I personally cant remember all the details of all my games, I will blame on 6 and 1/2 years of college and no degree to show for it. I almost I could video tape games to go over them not to post them somewhere but just to help me remember all the little things that I can improve on.
The Dwarves were nicely represented this weekend good job with yours, Erebor should be a proud nation.

You made a comment after the event that was one of the truest things I've ever heard said in LOTR. Something about the ballista being your mvp not just because of the casualties it inflicted but because of the havoc it caused in your opponent's battle plans. OMG you aren't kidding. You basically destroyed my initial battle plan with it. What a pain that thing was in domination on an open board with a high perch to shoot from. I consider my ability to pull anything out of that game other than a defeat to be one of the best games I have every played, and that only happened because my dice turned around big time in H2H.

Btw the reason your dwarves kept falling off was that my scouts had greased the top of that tent.

Ah Ha! That explains your indifference when I asked if we could swap out huts, as the one originally in the NW corner was much flatter than the rest! It was probably Malbeth that allowed you to foresee my suggestion and quickly apply the grease! lol

Thanks for the coments, Frank! It was a great game - very tactical! Cheers!!
