So I had some games against a good bud from Warseer, Tsukefox this past weekend and we thought that we would try our hand at some Youtube Battle Reports in the vein of the greats that have come before us.

The sound quality is pants in a few sections, but we're working the kinks out. Let us know what you think guys.

Game 1 Part 2 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DLNfXcewnSo&feature=mfu_in_order&list=UL)

Should be some more games up later this week so stay tuned!

Game 2 Part 2 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ky_8qVIQfsk&feature=mfu_in_order&list=UL)

Final game of the backlog is up:
Game 3 Part 1 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TkkJmKMfxMU)
Game 3 Part 2 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zv29unPNThw&feature=youtube_gdata)

Hopefully I'll get some other games up soon - might have a small game with some Warriors of Chaos this weekend, so stay tuned!

Great reports :)

Good and clear (which might sound minor, but actually a lot of reports are ruined by people talking too fast or slurring).

Edit: Just watched the second video (or first half of it). Good to see you change your lists. That's a big failing in my own reports, in that my lists are pretty much the same most of the time so I'm worried about people getting bored.

Also I was wondering if you aren't using true line of sight?

Man-those arrer Boyz sure wanted to hold that tower. Jerks

Yeah, last time I played with Orcs it was several games in a row using a similar list. This time I figured that I would try to find some sort of happy medium between an all combat list and a shooting list. First game was all combat, this game was all shooting. I'm getting closer to that "ideal" list where I have a little bit of something in every phase, but I'm worried that I'm going to have to drop Boron to do it.

We were in fact trying to use TLoS, which part was confusing sir?

You were talking about shooting lanes, which with true line of sight rarely comes up unless there is a ton of terrain. So I was wondering if you were still doing line of sight the 7th ed way.

Ah, I gotcha. The Wolf Riders are pretty close in size to the weapon teams, which means that if you get the wolves right up on the WT's that they have trouble getting TLoS past the gobbo's. Also, with the wolves right up there the weapon teams can't move to advantageous positions, which messes up potential firing positions.

Sorry for the confusion!

04-08-2011, 20:44
I don't know about that... wolves don't really take up that much space. It's pretty easy to draw a line under of over a tail if the model is sideways, or just simply right by him if it's straight on.

Interesting to be sure. We'll have to make sure to keep it in mind for our next games - that seems like something that could change the course of the battle one way or the other.

Gork or Possibly Mork

Nice, clear and detailed report, just watched the first game so far.

Audio is a little low had to use my headphones then again there's alot of ambient noise at my house and my computer is wonky sometimes with audio so it might be fine.

"So take that you dirty tree sprites put on some bras and try again tommorrow"

Wasn't expecting that comment out of left field lmao!

Go Greenskins! Sorry TsukeFox

Stupid Grey Seer giving up magic supremacy on the 1st turn !!!
Next time theree will be a reckoning !!

Thanks for all the positive feedback. I'll try to keep up the good work and non sequiter humor.

Also, next time try to roll better Tsuke. So much of my learning really boils down to "roll better than Tsuke". The skaven games were much better, but the chariots as always swung the balance of power over to the side of mean green!
