The Coming of tor-Caedis

History remembers the victor, and this history is written of the Khorne warlord Tor-Caedis.

The first real battle saw him invade an aelven forest set amidst the Trees of Woe within Aqshy.  This burning forest was home to dark blackened trunks that dropped bits of flame, which glowed afire in the half light of the realm.

The Scenario was Reclaim the Fallen.  The current ruler of the Ashlands, the chaos lord Gysh the Iron, had led a raiding party into the forest, and to a man they were slaughtered by the aelven troops defending their land.

The body of Gysh the Iron was to be recovered at all costs and not lost to the enemy.

The scenario saw Tor-Caedis lead a small skirmishing band through the forest to recover the body.  He would have five turns to locate the body in one of three areas (whenever a friendly model would come within 3” of the token, on a 5+ that was the body).  For every of Tor Caedis’s men that was within 3” of the true body, he would earn a point.  He needed six points to win the scenario.  For every aelf within 3” of the body, he would lose a point.

The scenario lasted 5 sure turns and on a 4+ would go one more turn.

Tor Caedis and his Retinue – 13 Azyr Points

  • Tor Caedis (free) – no upgrades at all (first game) so very green and not even a command ability to his name
  • 10 Blood Reavers led by the chieftain Wreck-Gar the Mangled
  • 10 Blood Warriors led by the warrior Jimm Hellwig, the most ultimate of Khorne’s warriors
  • 3 Wrathmongers
  • 1 Khorograth


 

Princess Oriana and the Aelven Defenders of the Trees of Woe – 12 Azyr Points

  • Oriana, a high elf Princess (free) – no upgrades at all
  • 1 Frost Phoenix
  • 10 White Lions

The battlefield was set from the perspective of the Khorne warband.  The fallen Chaos lord was located either on the chaos altar (center), the jungle stand to the northwest of that, or under a large tree to the far left (out of picture)

Battlefield

The khorne bloodbound deployed first.  To achieve build points, both sides chose a secondary objective from the Azyr Empires list.  Chaos chose the “Slay their champions” objective, which would give 2 build points if their elite white lion unit could be slain.  The aelves chose the “slay their general” objective, aiming to put an end to the short career of Tor-Caedis.

Deployment

Secondary and Tertiary Objectives
Three tertiary objectives were rolled.  For chaos, they received the Slay the General objective (worth D3 build points), and had to hold objective #4 and #6 for at least a turn.  Objective six was far to the east, and so the reavers were deployed there to take that objective, for their combat ability was lacking without boosts.

Objective four was in the heart of the aelven deployment zone, so should have been an easy one for the chaos side to achieve as they would push forward.

The aelves generated “Win the game”, “Hold objective #2, but this is worth D3 build points”, and the General must survive.

Build points are a crucial part of Azyr Empires, as they help you progress your heroes and your territories even if you do not win the game.  (winning the game helps you obtain new territory which gives you campaign points, and is how you win the campaign)

Deployment
As noted above, the reavers were put on the eastern part of the deployment as they would likely not see combat in this game, and that was fine because without buffers in the force they would not work very well… however as an objective taker they were perfect.

The left flank would be dominated by the wrath mongers and the khorgorath, who would be aiming right for one of the tokens that could be the fallen chaos lord.

Tor-Caedis and his Blood Warriors would march up the middle.

The trick would be to not get tied up by the white lions and stay mobile and react to wherever the general’s body was.

The aelf force was composed of elites and had a very low model count, so the numbers advantage was definitely in chaos’ favor… but this type of scenario does not care for how much you kill – its easy to get out of position and not make it to the fallen body objective in time if not careful!

HoldingUpTheBloodBound

The Bloodbound quickly took the center of the table while the reavers rushed to take the tertiary objective.  Over on the west, the phoenix as predicted moved to intercept the korgorath, which let the wrath mongers try to identify the token and see if it was the chaos lord.

PhoenixEnroute

Sure enough it was!  This was both a good thing (because we found out where the body was right away) but a bad thing (2/3 of my army was way out of position).  Fortunately with the game being early, and the aelves having no missile weapons, I would have time to correct my course!

The next few turns were given to the white lions and their princess charging the blood warriors on the altar to try to hold them up.  White Lions can be quite deadly, and a bad battleshock phase could see the Blood Warriors rushed off of the altar and off the table in no time.

Their axes swinging, they brought down three entire blood warriors (that’s six wounds) but managed to also lose half of their number in return.

The princess and chaos chieftain mixed it up in the center of the table, and with time running low, the Blood Warriors disengaged with a retreat action to move toward the body.

The phoenix put a hurting on the khorgorath, killing the creature before succumbing to the wrathmongers.

GeneralVsGeneralTurn5

With the princess and the chaos chieftain battling atop the skull altar, the end of turn 5 came.  If the dice roll to see if turn 6 failed, the aelves would win this one.

It was not to be however.  With a mighty “6” showing up on the dice to continue, the blood warriors were able to reach the body of their chaos lord and give enough points for khorne to win this day.

MakingABreakForVictory

Aftermath
Both general’s still survived, so the aelf player received a build point for achieving that objective.

The white lion unit did indeed die, giving the khorne player +2 build points, and the reavers contributed with another build point for holding objective 6.

With the body of their fallen lord recovered, Tor expanded his empire by bringing in an Azyr Mountainous territory, with which a settlement was built and unlocked a hero slot.

Still in the middle of the pack, an initial win is something that can be built on, and thus the champion Tor’s first battle ended…

The many strategies of Azyr Empire are … do you go for the win or do you go for build points if you have to choose between both?

With the new settlement built on the mountain territory, I gain a hero slot which will be used to bring in a bloodsecrator and boost my reavers with him (not only do all khorne units gain a melee attack if he plants his standard, but reavers get an additional attack from just being near a totem)

Now the question is… do I push for summoning some demons?  How will I build on my empire next?

It appears some duardin are to be challenged next…

BadabTurn2_4_2

Last week I wrote a little forum post that turned into an article asking “what makes 7th edition 40k LESS COMPETITIVE than 5th edition 40k”.  The answers that were posted back and the conversation that followed highlighted a very important piece of information that probably should have been resolved first.  The definition “competitive gaming” had many different definitions to many different people; no wonder there is such heated discussion on the topic!

I don’t think that this article is going to be the ultimate definition of what Competitive Gaming is, but I am going to give my opinion on what Competitive Gaming is and will also touch on why I feel that Warhammer 40,000 has NEVER been a competitive game in any of its editions.

To the first topic, Competitive Gaming is to me a game played between people where the skillset of the players are compared against and the player with the most skill should come out on top.  This can be in anything, be it sports like football, soccer, or games like chess.

Competitive Gaming should primarily be resolved based on the skill of the player(s) involved and should be against players of roughly equal caliber.

For example, the game of football can be played by anyone.  However, there is a large difference between a high school foot ball team, a college football team, and a professional football team.  We expect that these teams be matched up against people in their same class or caliber.

Fighting sports such as boxing or mixed martial arts, or even wrestling, pair people up in weight classes, because there is nothing LESS competitive than setting a heavy weight fighter up against a 130 lb fighter.

Competitive players also have to deal with random elements in the form of weather, sporting venues, and things of that nature.  Not only must they deal with them, they must overcome them.

Competitive Gaming ultimately seeks to determine who is the better overall player.

Why I feel 40k has never been a competitive game has nothing to do with its core rules.  The things many people who claim to be competitive talk about hating, I don’t see as making any more or less “competitive”.  Random charges, random powers, etc don’t make a game less competitive, they enforce a different set of skills and tactics that must be employed.

However, the lack of game balance between factions DOES make a game less competitive, and Warhammer 40k and Warhammer Fantasy have never had any real balance in any of the editions, which is to me why neither game is competitive nor has it ever been.

When competing in warhammer, players will actively seek to have their army list do as much of the heavy lifting as possible.  In sports terms, it is the same as being handed a professional football team, being able to freely obtain all of the super star players in the league, and then also be given the caveat that one can play teams at the high school or college level, and if the weather is not preferable one has the power to change the weather so that conditions are always perfect.

As a fighter, it would be like getting to be the heavy weight fighter and taking on opponents in weight classes far below the one assigned.

None of these scenarios to me is competitive.  I’d even go so far as to say that actively engaging in these types of contests is NON-COMPETITIVE because the skill of the player is secondary to how well the deck can be stacked.  While that may be fine in a deck game like Magic: The Gathering – in a game of war where one expects tactics and strategies to be tested this falls very very short.

To me – for 40k to be truly a competitive game, the balance in all of the factions needs seriously overhauled.  Barring that, a solid comp system needs put in place to put more builds in viable standings.

Second, for 40k to be truly a competitive game, tournaments should deviate from every table being the same and having the same scraps of terrain on them.  This enforces certain build types.  A truly good player should be tested on different types of boards, with different types of terrain and cover available.  Start showcasing tournaments where some tables are like city scapes where line of sight is not freely given to every model on the table, and you’ll start to see lists shifting to accommodate the fact that you won’t always get to play on planet bowling ball and do nothing but shoot.

Third – for 40k to truly be a competitive game, the designers need to lessen or eliminate the ROCK/PAPER/SCISSORS aspect of the game.  This has always existed, from the time I started playing in third edition, to today.

My two primary tournament 40k armies were starcannon spam eldar and leafblower Imperial Guard.

A little history:  my first army was Dark Angels.  After three months of playing the game I played in my first tournament and got curb stomped bad.  The winner of that event was a star cannon spam eldar player, who said something to me to this very day that I will never forget, even nearly twenty years later.  He said “eldar are a tough army to play properly and only veteran players can really get a hang of it”.

I didn’t understand that, since he tabled me in three turns by rolling a lot of dice with weapons I got no save against.  So I built the same army.  The next tournament I attended, about six months into the hobby, I won my first tournament by tabling two blood angels players and a space wolf player.

That really summarizes competitive 40k to me.  I am not a great player.  When you kick my crutches out from under me, I win as much as I lose, and I certainly would never have been able to win a tournament without a list that took advantage of no cover, and a meta which was dominated by blood angels players with a smattering of space wolf players.

That next year and a half I played in over one hundred competitive games.  I lost twice:  once to an ork player and once to a tyranid player.  I mistakingly thought that I was a great 40k player because my lists were busted and few played my hard counter (a hoard army).

The thing was, I was the 270 lb heavy weight fighter fighting 125 lb high school kids.  I was the New England Patriots playing football games against Springfield High.  There was nothing competitive about it.  When I tried playing lists that did not exploit whatever was broken at the time, I didn’t do nearly as well.  That to me again speaks volumes about competitive 40k.

It never has been competitive while the army rules are as imbalanced as they have always been and sadly has never really been a test of player skill or strategy so much as it has been a test with how good one is with rudimentary math and effective spreadsheet skills.
