Dave and myself had a couple if quick games of the Grimdark Firefight rules on Sunday.
Once again Le Space French took to the field, with Le Tommy Cooper in command ....now supported by two storm troopers in power armour!!
Dave fielded Battle Brothers, actually painted by himself!!!! If only his Brunswickers were painted!
350 points a side, with the battle brothers fielding 5 battle brothers a very expensive, but tough, destroyer and Assault brother who started in ambush. The space French took two squads of infantry a storm trooper commander, storm trooper, sniper, heavy weapon and obviously the magic Le Tommy.
We played the basic mission . Dave's "heroic" battle brothers did a lot of skulking behind cover and then firing into the rear of the French. His ambushing Assault brother also attacked my sniper ...in the rear without success. The destroyer tried ambushing Le Tommy ....but paid for his mistake when Tommy took him out with a devasting psychic blast, and then finished him with a pistol shot!! Game 1 to the French, lots of appalling dice rolls for Dave saw his forces devastated.
The second game was much more balanced, Dave actually managed to kill several of the French whilst also managing to roll his 2+ saves......the Battle Brothers did still cower behind cover a lot though!!
Two quick enjoyable , if bloody games. A walker may need to be deployed by the French in future.........
