My First Game of the Year!

Looking back at this blog, the last actual game I played was 2nd January 2015 - that is terrible. Last year was way too busy or I spent far too muh time prevaricating. It certainly doesn't help that my main opponent (Son Number 2) now lives in Knutsford - 160 mile away.

Well we finally had another game of Mayhem - Mintaurs versus Fish People.
Sorry about the poor quality photos - new phone rather than my camera. I resort to the latter from now on.

The Fish People Army
Here we have the fish people. The general is the octopus at the rear - rather slow but with a pretty high command dice because he can dirrect eight units at a time.
On the right flank, are the People Spearmen supported by a Fish Giant and on the left flank are Fish People Swordsmen, one unit of which is elite. In the centre is a Fish Hero.

Minotaur Left Flank

 The Minotaurs were pretty basic - just eight units of Minotaurs, one of which was elite. 
The left flank had a hero supporting its rear. 
The right flank had a unit of wolves in front and the general at the rear.

Minotaur Right Flank
Having not played for a year, we were both a bit rusty so I dare say we got things wrong but we had fun so everything was good.

Basically, my Minotaurs advanced on the Fish People and slaughtered them.The Giant Fish did manage to knobble my elite minotaurs but that was it and I'm afraid that I was too good at throwing straight 1's.

One spear unit and two swordsmen already wiped out and due to some really poor dice throwing the Fish Giant is rather left out in the cold.

Finally the Giant Fish tries to get close enough to lob a rock or two but to no avail. The swordsmen are wiped out and the Fish People Army breaks.

Let's hope I manage another gam before 2017!
And in the meantime, I hope you all have a wonderful 2016.
