Since we had an odd number and I had the most wins, I took the option to sit out and watch the first round. One of the pairing was Eric's King Vinter vs. Bill's Wild Gnome with the battle being fought in the mountain lands using the Hold Out scenario. Eric had to deploy his force in split sections, but they showed up on the second turn which really didn't effect the game set up. The battle was met in the middle with the Gnome's rats moving up in blocks. The battle was fought hard, but the Gnome was victorious. Bill found an Eldritch graveyard with gold loosing one of his giant rats and a wererat. Vinter found a shrine that gave him a gold.
The other game was Paul's new Maximus' Veteran's of the 1st Cohort vs. Steve's Slave revolt of Gladius Imperious lead by Hunk-ra. The battle was fought in a standard field with the Difficult Ground scenario. Paul took the victory after removing enough gladiators that Steve's small army was in peril of being wiped out. One of Paul's guys picked up an illness and Steve found a trap and was able to disable it for a gold.
Second round had my Victor's Boys vs. the Gnome and his wererats. We fought on open land with the difficult ground scenario, which was odd. We did have a special terrain feature of a teleport field but neither one of us tried it out. Bill focused on taking out my weaker dogs to force a test on the warband, while I tried to keep closing the gap without setting up the charge for his rats. In the end it was the Gnome in the corner surrounded by some poisoned house guard. I took the win, but it wasn't very pretty. I found a cave that was empty and one of Bill's rat got ill.
The other game was Eric's King Vinter vs. Paul's Romans. They played the Ambush with Eric hiding his forces with markers. Paul won and got eh Murder of Crows (?) while Paul was lucky enought to recover a forgotten treasure.
Since it was my third game I was able to apply some advances. Everyone (except the dogs) went up in quality except Bobbie that I gave fearless.
