Spooky enough for ya?
October brings with it Halloween and thus another opportunity for a spooky game just begging to be played. With my last last game of Warhammer over a year ago and my Vampire Count army locked away since 7th Edition, I was just a little bit hesitant about Eric's offer for a big Halloween bash on the 28th.
Eric was just fresh off converting up and painting a new unit of super spiffy Knights Raven with their Grand Master
The points level was pretty close to 4000 as I offered Eric the chance to field as much of his Empire-Witch Hunter-Stirland River Patrol-Grey Watcher-Order of the Raven Army (Inside joke) as he could and then matched him with my undead minions.
As I am currently in between vampire conversions for my army I decided to go with the Lego Monster Hunters inspired "Lord Vampyre" for my arch fiend's name in a vain attempt to further annoy my would be executioner across the table. It was definitely fun to field most of the evil minions in my figure cases, especially my full compliment of 80 zombies for once. :-)
With such a large set up and sized armies the enjoyable evening sped by far too fast, and we only made it about half way through the game before midnight struck and we turned into pumpkins. I'm definitely looking forward to another slightly smaller bout in the near future. In the meantime enjoy the pictures!
All in all, another enjoyable evening with lovely armies and terrain, good food and yummy seasonally themed beer, and great company. Thanks again for the game Eric!
