Finally got to play against Krom, our resident pansy High Elves player. To cut the long story short, I'm using TK again with a slight change to my list to test some new units and I handicap 54 pts @2446. We rolled for random mission in the rule book and TK rolled to deploy 1st.

Sword master issue challenge to prince Apophas which could not be refused. Swordmaster deal 2 wounds to prince, Apophas made 1 regen save, the remaining 1 wound killing it. Exploding beetles kill 1 sword master...

HE turn 3

Sword master charged the flank of  skeleton warriors unit. 
Both eagles charged Hierophant archer unit. 
Silver helms move towards casket of souls. 

HE magic was ineffective as the wind of magic was weak (doubles ones). 

Casket shrug off shooting from HE.

White lions kill 1 ushabti and 7 skeletons. 
Swordmasters kill 13 skeletons. 
Ushabtis kill 5 white lions, Tomb king kill 3 white lions. Skeletons kill 2 white lions. 
Sword master saved 2 wounds from skeleton attacks.

14 Skeletons left with Tomb king stuck in combat with white lions and sword masters. Eagles managed to kill hierophant and some archers. In return archers kill 1 eagle. 

We decided to call it here, as the winner is obvious. 

Victory to HE (damn pansies)

Buying direct & Bargain hunting

Found a local online book store which started recently. Call NOQ Store it is a online local book store based in SG. With delivery charges of S$5 for any amount of books and cheaper than retail price, its my latest place to get all warhammer fluff. The books are even cheaper than buying from Maelstrom. They have a membership system where you can get more discount but comes with a fee. Worth it if you buy alot of first hand books.   

Bought 2 books during the store promotion where they have free delivery for a week. 1st book was the new Nagash Immortal for S$9.50 with tax which is around £4.70, almost 50% cheaper than the actual retail. The 2nd book was Gotrek & Felix 2nd omnibus for S$15+ (£7.50) slightly cheaper than retail. These 2 will last me for awhile as I still have HH: Age of darkness, HH: Battle for Abyss :( , Grey seer Thanquol, Vampire wars & Gotrek & Felix 1st omnibus to read. 

Below is my 2nd direct order from UKGW online store, and YES they do shipped overseas even though they block UK retailers selling their product from doing it...

I have some gaming buddies that can't quit the GW plastic/resin crack addiction lol. I'm writing a brief guide on buying from UKGW direct online store. Click the link below

TK vs DE 2.5k Fantasy batrep round 2

Another fantasy batrep against Jaeroler Dark elves again lol. Since I'm (usually) the 2nd half gamer, and Jaeroler can usually play both 1st and 2nd halves. I end up playing against him most of the time. Will try switching to playing 1st half against Beardy One Dwarfs, once we settled on a date for the grudge match which goes back many years...

Fresh from our defeat at the hands of the pansy (NO CHEESE!!!) High Elves  (2.5+2.5k vs 2.5k+2.5k) game. The two evil suspicious allied forces (me: TK, Jaeroler: DE ) will be fighting against each other in this game.

Pitch battle was rolled...
DE went 1st.

*Note: Dark Elves lvl 4 sorcerer have sacrificial dagger which kept killing the 100 spear elves every turn to generate power dice. I didn't record how many Jaeroler kill every turn but not enough to induce panic.

Not every spells cast were recorded, dispelled spells were also not taken down. Only spells that affected the game were taken down.
