Night of the Dead – Warhammer Fantasy Siege Mini-Campaign 3

The third scenario we played as a warm up game was the Toll House on the Bridge scenario from the old General’s Compendium book released by GW. One of the upside of my “old GW book” collecting habit is that it leaves me with lots of choice for scenarios, campaigns, and odd little units.

The scenario - apologies for the blurriness!

If you can’t make it out, the scenario involves a small group trying to sneak across a guarded bridge.

Three manage to slip through before the alarm is raised. Once the Necromancer realises what is happening, the game is up and the Elves are quickly mobbed.

This worked less well, hence the fewer photos, as the number disparity on either side made the chance the Elves would survive once the alarm was raised almost nil. While it might work with the Empire and Goblins originally in the book, it struggles with differing races which are worth wildly disparate points values.

Still, lesson learnt!
