Six of us got together on the first Monday of the New Year to play DBA and HOTT.

Larry wanted to debut his HOTT army so I obliged. Jim, Alan, Dean and Steve paired off to do DBA battle.  The HOTT armies were in 15mm, not the 25mm used at the big 3 East conventions. My army was Forest Satyrs, mainly by Splintered Light. I used a substitute figure group for my magician as I haven’t finished one for the army yet. Larry’s army was Dwarven, all from Splintered Light.

The game started with my normal crap movement dice as Larry maneuvered to get his matchups. I foiled his plans early by rolling big on the first mage cast…and his Behemoth fled!

I peeled my centaur (beasts) wing to the left of the hill and Larry countered with his mobile troops and included a flyer.  Seeing an opening, Larry later attacked my horde in the rear. Recoil and they die…..but the dice were kind to me. 6:2 meant the flyers flew off the table edge in flight!

Next the behemoth Jabberwocky and supportds  attacked my front, hoping to drive the Hero back (he couldn’t recoil as the Horde was reversed!). Once again my dice were fearsome as a 6:1 smashed the Jabberwock!

A dwarf blade also fell to a 6:2…THREE 6’s in combat rolls!!! At this point the game was pretty much done. Larry did kill one of the Centaurs, but couldn’t kill the other when I rolled big.

Next I matched up with Dean in DBA who used his nicely-painted Vikings agiansy my Communal Italians.

This game was a complete opposite of the other..I was rolling 2’s or 1’s for every combat so went down quick 4-0!
