Lord Carver vs Magnus – Hellhole scenario
Last sunday I had the opportunity to play a scenario I have been eager to play since I first read its rules. It’s the Hellhole scenario from PP’s 2009 Call to Arms league which can be found here. This scenario is about a growing sinkhole in the middle of the battlefield. You can win the scenario by getting into the opponent’s half without letting him into yours.
I played a Lord Carver tier 4 list and my opponent went with Magnus Four Star. Here are the lists (35 points):
- Lord Carver, 2 Warhogs, Gunboar, Rorsh and Brine, 2 min units of Brigands, Razorback crew
- Magnus, Mangler, Nomad, Renegade, full Halberdiers, min Steelhead Riflemen, Rhupert, Hawk, Gorman, Stannis
I started the game. Here are some battlefield impressions with a short report in the captions:
That was a great game. The scenario is quite fun and difficult to play. You have to consider the growing sinkhole every turn which also eats the terrain. So freeing chargelanes to consider! Also it’s important to decide who is going to which flank as the center is no option and the goal is to break through to the other half. Btw, only one model, a brigand, disappeared.
