Special thanks to Steve G (Noght) for writing this battle report up for our game yesterday.
Quick Battle Report vs Dogs of War, 2200 points.
Kind of an odd scenerio: Torrential Downpour, -D3 magic/dispel dice each magic phase. Additional penalties to shooting and WarMachines...
(There were 10 Armies in the Tourney, 5 of would classify as Hand to Hand Armies: 4 WoC, 1 DoC, and 1 VC. I'm doomed if I draw one of those guys withe the shooting and magic penalties)
I ended up vs the Dog of War which was a fortunate match up for my Empire Army.
