Draw battle vampire counts rant
Well.

I possibly played the most boring game to date.


I was playing a magic-heavy Vampire Counts opponent who focused primarily on raising more ghouls and forcing combat. I brought my combat list, and expected a bloody, vicious confrontation.

Instead I sat around waiting for combat, knowing that if I moved forward I would expose flanks and thought "For sure, this all melee army will attack me soon. For sure! Especially with my shooting threatening him!"

Nope! Instead both Organ guns blew up with the two of them only taking out four fell bats. My Bolt Throwers were full of "whiff!" and only killed 3 Ghouls between the two of them... which were promptly healed.

When we finally got into combat, he only placed a single unit in combat despite it being turn 5 and having quite a few more charges available, and turn 6 saw combat between more than just two units.

So, he finally broke my win streak. By doing nothing but raising anything I smacked down and trying to wear me down with the little bit of range his magic allowed.

I guess I'm just a little disappointed that my first non-victory in Fantasy would be such a boring battle. Gah, forgive my frustration, but man that was a lame game, and it sometimes just feels good to vent, y'know?
