Yesterday I went to Firestorm games to introduce my mate Steve to Sword and Spear Fantasy, and also to playtest the new undead rules that Mark has written.
we played a 500 point game of Elves v Undead with a good assortment of unit types included and as it the norm with me Steve won the battle.
unfortunately I forgot to take any pictures so you just have to imagine it, but here’s a few thoughts on the new Undead rules
- you needs lots of magic users to keep the army moving, I went for 4 of them for my army and that worked well
- they have a single discipline level of 4 but Magic users can spend Magic points to change your activation dice rolls to allow you to get things moving
- due to there low discipline level they do tend to activate later in the turn but this can have its advanges
I hope later this month to be able to write up a full review of the fantasy rules to give people an idea of whats in store
