1 part, though it's a rather long one...

My Mortifex trashmob takes on the elite fighters of Matt's Runegate Keeper Nordgaard.

SPOILER ALERT

Wow what a wipe-out!

I thought this would be a real battle of attrition with the Valkyrie resurrecting and the Necromancers reanimating.

Observations:
Des played almost flawlessly, and took great advantage of the Fallen Ghosts to engage the enemy at crucial points.

1) Matt's first Problem was deployment and movement, bottle-necking his entire warband in a tiny space so that they were tripping over each other and preventing charges.
2) Secondly losing the Valkyrie was a turning Point and an unnecessary loss.
3) Matt's warband was composed 100% of Dwarves. With their slow movement and the bottle-necking, he had no way to take down the Necromagus or the Mortifex, so he faced an endless tide of rotting flesh
4) He should have spent some Action Tokens to increase the odds of passing his expiry test from the Rot continuous effect.
5) Should have used powerful fighting style at all times with the Fjell Warriors in order to negate the undead Deadflesh ability.
6) he also forgot the direct damage one 2-3 critical hits he scored.

The composition of the warbands was critical. Des' Magistratum warband with a Scorpio and 4 Praetorian Carnifexors plus 2 Units of Legio Mortum was really a scary warband.

Matt - you Need to get a Bloodvarg, (which is coming out very soon). Alternatively, a Chainslayer or 2 would have been helpful to take the battle to the Magistratum. A Fjellgangr would have slaughtered the Legio Mortum with his Thrash attack combined with Stongarm Ale and Powerful Fighting Style (giving him POW5).

Of course hidsight is the clearest kind of sight :-)

If I may be a little bit of a threadomancer, I'd like to say how much I appreciate this video as an aspiring Mortan player and it definitely makes me want to play Magistratum even more. Smile

That's okay, re-animating dead threads is not a crime on this Forum.

In fact, this is a really great battle report to watch.
