Sir Bivalve and the Uruk-Hai

Sir Bivalve and the Uruk-Hai is another playtest of Warrior Heroes: New Dawn, in the works at Two Hour Wargames.  My aim was to try out the mounted rules with mounted on both sides and to use shooting, which I had not before.

Here are the comic pages, which you will have to click on to see full size.




This game only went 3 turns, but was quite a bit more complicated than the comic pages show.  Let me list the opponents and etc.  Sir Bivalve (Star), Sir Remaunch and Sir Greenclaw were all Rep 5, AC 6 with Born To The Saddle trait. The longbowmen were Rep 4 AC 2.  The warg spearman and bowman were Rep 5. All the other orcs were Rep 4. All the orcs were AC 0, except the mounted bowman who was AC 2. The mounted spear was Born to the Saddle, the mounted sword had the Riddle of Steel, and the mounted bowman had the Way of the Hunter.

The Miasma was only 3, but was never passed by enough to matter in any case.  Also, the figure has to active to try his trait.

The bows were pretty much ineffective, even against one another, causing only a retire.  The other retires were caused by Man Down.

Sir Bivalve got in trouble against his mounted opponent, and had to rely on Star Power to save his skin.

It was a pretty uneven affair, with the human knights riding roughshod over the Uruk-Hai.
