Song of Blades and Heroes- Ambush in the Ruins

Posted: July 23, 2013 in Song of Blades and Heroes

My friend Phoenix and I sat down to play SBH this evening. This is our second session with this game and although he slaughtered me the first time around I was feeling very confidant as we set up for the game. After all it was me who introduced him to table top wargaming. Obviously his initial win was a fluke, right?

So my band of hardened mercenaries, Rothgar’s Raiders, were making their way through some spooky ruins when they find themselves ambushed by band of Serpent Warriors known as Phe Phe’s Phalanx. Phe won the toss and chose to defend so he set up the ruins and set his ambush tokens in place.

Once Phe placed his ambush tokens I deployed my band of stalwart warriors within 1medium measurment of my table edge, at the edge of the ruins.

Everyone but my mage, Cedric the Mildly Useless, was able to activate on the first round. Poor Cedric stayed back behind that wall.

My melee forces moved into the ruins not realizing that they were being watched.

Not expecting to also be attacked by the leader of the serpent band, Rothgar falls and is soon slain on the spot. This results in three more of my troops fleeing in terror. Things went quickly down hill from there since I started with only six members in my war band.

Edain the Archer was one of the last of my troops left on the table.

He proved mighty but not mighty enough. In the end, they chased him down and put an end to him. Phoenix didn’t even activate his entire war band. One of them was still in hiding when my forces had left the field or died.
