Jonathan very kindly showed me the ropes with my first Epic game tonight. I lost most of the Horde, and the game in the End but it was super fun!
I had between 1750 to 1850 odd points (depending which version of the lists you used) and my army consisted of;
- Big Warband with Warlord (4 nobz, 12 boyz, 4 Grotz) and 2 Oddboy Soopaguns
- Mekboy Stompa Mob with Supa Stompa, 3 Stompas, 2 Dreads and 2 Killa Kans
- Blitz Brigade with Oddboy Zzaap Gunwagon and 2 Extra Flakwagons
- Blitz Brigade with Oddboy Zzaap Gunwagon, an Extra Flakwagon and a Gunfortress
the other Blitz Brigade faces off against (along way away) another Tactical and Devastator unit. John has two Assault units deployed centrally as his mobile reserve
In turn one I also moved my Blitz Brigade with Gunfortress up and pounded away at the Tactical and Devastator's that had driven off my Warband, finishing off the Devastators. On the other flank the Blitz Brigade moved up and hid behind the hill, only to be pounce on and shot at without loss by a Tactical Formation in rhinos with supporting Devastators behind them. John's Assault Marines both moved over to the flank where my Warband was.
My Stompa Mob now doubles back to the center again and unleashes on one of the Assault Marines, driving them back and getting them down to one stand, which my Warband remnant promptly engages and kills. On the other flank my Biltz Brigade decides they are better off mashing Devastator's in combat instead of trading fire with them so Engage and are slaughtered by counter attacking Dreadnoughts, which wipe them out.
