Our first evening saw three battles fought with three consecutive wins by the Crusaders. The battle of Constantinople was won by Lord Terry scoring an impressive 8 AP. Following this the campaign pin was advanced to Nicaea with Baron William taking command and getting a quick kill on the Saracen General scored a 2 AP leaving him in dismal hopes for that crown at the end. The campaign then saw the action in and around Antioch with Lord Carl "the petulant" defeating a well commanded Saracen host and racking up an even 4 AP in the standings. The evening went well and will continue with the remaining 4 games to be played to decide the overall commander.
The group discussed a "kicker" for AP or Glory would be the Holy Grail. If a player presents for perusal a "holy grail" cup that is deemed worthy as a trophy to mark this historic campaign that that commander could receive an additional 1D6 glory to his final score and may actually win from a secondary finish with high enough points to carry the victory of the campaign and accrue the coveted seat in Jerusalem.
We leave you with a few additional pictures from more Hordes of the Things action in 60mm. These armies fought the previous Thursday for a HotT double points bash of 48 AP semi-historical fun.
