Another great visual spectacle guys, you're both pretty talented painters.

Several of your games (including this one) seemed to be a little one-sided, which has been my experience with AoS as well, would you say the games are enjoyable in spite of that fact?

When you said "The Skaven player needs to kill 12 Stormcast before the Stormcast kill 14 Skaven", why did you not immediately go, "Ooops! Looks like we need more Skaven!"?

:wtf:

According to your system, the Skaven would need to kill 30-something Might points before the Sigmardudes killed around 10.

That's not what I would call "even".

Hi, I meant the armies themselves: 74 vs 77.

I don't understand your 30 vs 10?

Cheers.

The armies were more or less even, but as a consequence it was a real uphill struggle for the Skaven, who needed to do kill 75% of the foe before suffering 50% of their own. Since the victory conditions were not equal, the forces should not have been equal. Unsurprisingly, the Skaven were a couple of casualties away from losing at the end of turn 1.

Aha, I see your point, thanks.

In fairness I don't think the match-up was entirely to blame for the result, if the skaven player had hung back and fired the WL cannon a few more times I think the game could've been a lot closer, the skaven player didn't appear to use his assets all that well (which is covered in the post match discussion).
