I played a few games, I saw a beautifully painted Bretonnian army and had a thoroughly nice day.
My main opponent for the day was a High Elf player. We decided to play a an ambush as I my army seemed to outnumber him (as they should with Skaven Vs High Elves). We set up with a base of Forrenrends and took it from there.
My first turn saw my four Jezzails fire straight down the line and hit subsequently and wipe out almost his entire that was traveling in column. Seriously, he was down to some Sea Elf Beastmasters with some fish/squid/crag gribblies that we bodged some rules up for (you should be able to see them in the photo's below, they're Foundry Mini's and they're very nice indeed) and two Eagles.
This was enough for me to suggest that we start again. My opponent suggested that I reduce my Jezzail count from 4 to 2. I agreed and we started again. This time we played out the game and I lost. I'm not going to loose too much sleep over this as to begin with the idea was for us to just duke it out but after set up my opponent decided his victory condition was to get off the table edge that had just a unit of Rat Ogres to protect it, the bulk of my Army being in the opposite direction. Not wanting to spoil an amicable game I agreed and a bit of a Benny Hill case then ensued where I was never gpoing to catch an army that moves as fast as me. Moral victory to me for being a nice guy I think and that's more important than winning!
Anyhow, photo's below, enjoy (although they were taken on my camera phone so a bit dodgy).
