Dwarves vs. Orcs

Dale came over Saturday afternoon and we played a game of Song of Blades and Heroes. It was his first time playing, so we just played a simple “kill all the guys on the other team” kind of scenario, as opposed to some sort of “fancy business” scenario. I had a bunch of short-legged dwarves and he had a bunch of orcs and goblins.

Hot dwarf-on-orc action!

My guys were of higher Quality and had higher Combat values, but I only had six of them, and no ranged attacks. Dale had 10 orcs and goblins, but they were weaker units, in general. However, he did have several units with bows. At first, it didn’t seem very fair, and my dwarves were really rolling well for activations (but a bit lousy for combat rolls) and things seemed to be going my way. But then, I started blowing several crucial activation rolls, and then I started losing dwarves. It finally ended with me just squeaking out a victory due to a pretty brutal series of morale rolls that caused the rest of Dale’s team to run off the board.

Also, during the last week, I downloaded and printed Ganesha Games’ newest rules set, Flying Lead. This is a more modern set of rules able to recreate eras from World War II to near-future. After my first read-through, it seems to me to be a more detailed set of rules, in my opinion, than any other set of Ganesha Games rules. I’m really looking forward to being able to play it soon.
