Well... he finally beat me... Maybe I shouldn't have let him have that many more units than me? Oh well; it was fun and pure mayhem!
We spent the weekend before setting it up. Finally got to play this weekend. It actually spanned two days! I think this was our largest battle to date. I had 26 guys on my side and he had over 30. By the second day I was wondering where all these guys were coming from... I suspect foul play while I wasn't in the room but I have no hard evidence =) We didn't really count off our armies; just built some shit and had at it. Used every single fantasy guy we had plus he used a bunch of space stuff.
- My son named one guy "Harry Skywalker" because it was a Luke Skywalker minifig but he had a wand and was riding a flying broom.
- One of my guys was a peasant with a fishing pole and no armor. He ended up killing several guys in armor, picking up weapons and armor the whole way, and turned into a total badass. Took a whole squad to take him down... there's a pic of his epic death... bunch of ogres and other guys surrounding him and blood everywhere; can't miss it.
- He used a stupendous feat to turn over my catapult and kill it's two operators... it was pretty eipic to us =)

It's not a turn-by-turn synopsis of the battle =) I just took some shots of it all setup and them some random shots as we went when it seemed like something totally awesome happened.... usually when someone was greased!
