The Lure of Darkness

Got back to playing Chaos as planned tonight. Played two games; one against Empire and one against High Elves. Must say, I missed the exhilaration of commanding the forces of darkness to unthinkable evil. Also remembered how fluid the army feels as compared to the Empire which I found myself spending too much time during games thinking over.

In game 1 some horrifically bad luck for the Empire say the game end a massacre to me in turn 2. Second game was much better, being quite the bloodbath in the Watchtower. Managed a 13-7~ victory on this one, taking the tower to start and getting the buffed Chosen swapped in turn 2. Lost out on a bigger win thanks to Kevin's superbly built points denial army which consists of extremely large blocks which are had to take points from without outnumbering them. Nearly had a block of Lions and BSB nailed (down to four models) but two successful Regrowths saw them get back another 10 models. Still enjoyed the carnage though.
