They were undercoated black. If I'd known about the red spray back then, how much easier would my life have been?

Chapter 2, The Empire Struck Down
Clan Poi approached the Imperial watchtower. The plague monks couldn't keep their tempers in check, and charged headlong, driving the defenders from their post, unmindful of the manling greatswords approach from the right flank. The plague monks couldn't hold their new won territory, and fled the field.

A flash of fire on the left, and the rat ogres vanished in a huge ball of flame.

The clanrats followed the plague monks, hoping to draw the knights interest, but the cowardly cavalry stayed well out of reach whilst leaving the clanrats to the tender mercies of a cannon and a wizard. The cannon fell to the ratman advance, but by then their numbers had dwindled til only a tiny fragment remained, unable to pursue their desires to claim the human tower.

Thanks for the game last night - it was good fun. I can't claim a victory based on solid tactics, however - merely good dice rolls on my part, and some unfortunate ones on yours... sorry about that!

Still, some interesting learnings, such as: magic is very powerful now...!

It's possible I have over inked my first ten clanrats.

Oh well, at least they are almost done.

But on to more important things.

Chapter 3, For the Lady?
Clan Poi had a hectic time, seeing off a Bretonnian army in fairly short order. So few of them turned up, the clanrats outnumbered them, regardless of what other forces Warlord Poi had cajoled into fighting.
Neglecting to pray, the frogs charged headlong into the Skaven line, then squeeked, turned and ran in the face of vastly outnumbering forces.

Chapter 4, Purple Rat Eaters, perhaps?
But then came the Purple umie eaters. Clanrats and giant rats closed in to catch the night goblins in a pincer, only to be caught by a savage orce arrer boy regiment. Let rats do what frogs did earlier.

Pleased to get two games in still with plenty of time for nattering.

how are you finding 8th Poi?
Also Paul tells me you played the same scenario as we did and having all your standards in 1 unit cost you the game. I'm looking forward to some bigger games for that one.. I can see it getting quite tense

I only had one standard plus my general, both in my clanrat unit, so aye, killing that unit did me in.

I'm loving 8th. Combats aren't the tarpits of 7th, even with Steadfast.

Larger units and radnom charges makes the game very different.
