The basic outline of the game will be my Goblinoid horde besieging whoever wants to defend the mighty fortress
I hope to have around 7500 points worth of Goblinoids and allies painted up, along with a fair amount of artillery - Man Mangler, Skull Crusher, Lead Belcher, etc. There are also Giants, Wyverns and various siege equipment to contend with.
The game will be a slightly simplified version of the Siege rules to make it more manageable on the day. I'm happy for folk to join whenever they like - either as relief forces for the existing defenders or reinforcements for the bad guys.
So far Just John has volunteered his Dwarves to defend the fortress and Mr Furious is coming to his rescue with large amounts of Human Cavalry. I have Elves, Dwarves and Human infantry to add to the defenders. If I can get them done in time I also have several Dwarf and Human cannons I can donate.
I'd love to add in my Engines of Avalone scenario into the mix somehow - turning it on its head as a victory condition/side mission for the defenders. If I get the Human and Dwarf artillery painted it could be added to the objectives (take the Castle!) for the Goblinoids and other bad guys.
I envisage the game going on all day (on Saturday preferably) so let me know if you want to play from start to finish or just drop in at some point.
Any suggestions on how the game should be run are most welcome too.
Mr Furious has already suggested adding in various farm steads around the fortress which could provide a source of supplies/objectives/victory points for the defenders - or the attackers.
