So the forbidden rods power dice just goes to the pool- not the caster that owns it.

Tough luck war boss.

The wood elf player could have benefitted from having his glade guard unit broken up instead on one giant block- that way less is lost if & when a combat unit gets into the archers.
& more drops are always good.

The power dice generated by the forbidden rod only go to the bearer of the item. Normally I would agree about splitting up the glade guard but with their awesome range and volley fire rule it seems to work well for him. Not to mention he has a decent steadfast.

The power dice generated by the forbidden rod only go to the bearer of the item.

How do you arrive at that conclusion? The item says "The forbidden rod adds + D6 dice to the power pool at the start of the caster's own magic phase ... " and then goes on to talk about the consequences. It says it adds them power pool, not a specific, caster only power pool. When the dice are separated it is stated pretty specifically, e.g. Power of Darkness.

For a lot of other cases the model the generates the dice has to use it, not sure what the faq said on this one.

Well that's good news indeed. Like I said it was my first time using this item. I must have misread it. I probably assumed that since the bearer of the item had to take the d3wounds only he got the dice. My mistake.

A suggestion for the batrep would be a few more 'in between' pictures for some of the more important events you were describing. Otherwise, excellent job.

Ya I noticed I had the sequence of some of my pictures were not in line with some of my commentary. I'll tighten that up in the rematch. Thanks for the heads up.
