(Almost) first step in 9th age.

Second time I played a gamelet of 9th Age.

1000 points Bretonnia (Aquitain) against Lizardmen.

Two units of 7 and 6 respectively of Feudal Knights, a unit of Men at Arms, a BSB and a Lady with Druidic magic. Agains a hero on mount, a unit of 10 saurus and a cavalry saurus unit of 6.

My Men-at-Arms held agains the onslaught of a hero on Saurus mount for three turns (5, 6 and 5 on break test, helped by the regrowth spell), until they luckily rolld three sixes to wound - which was followed by triple ones on Armour saves!

In the meantime a failed charge of the mounted saurus was followed by a charge of the two knight units, fho slaughtered the mounted lizards and followed up out of the charge arc of the foot saurus. They regrouped and charged the foot saures and exterminated them.

Bret win.

I like it, but at this point I like WAP better and that is played mostly in my meta. But I don't mind playing the game once in a while.

I'm not surprised, that was brutal!

That's a good combination :)

It does sound like you have a fun skirmish. Do you think the hero characters too strong? Given that you needed 3 6's followed by 3 1's to deal with him... It might be more an issue at this points level, where you lack numbers. Tripple the size of you unit, and suddenly rolling 3 6's becomes less of a challenge.

I would no conclude that from this fight. Men at arms with sword and shield should have hard time against a fighty hero on an beast, I think.
