Alpian Wars returns to Library

The game was actually played in February, however work and family needs have kept me from posting much about this game.

Knights Charge in deck 5
The Victory Without Quarter rules set was again used, and why not since the deck is well prepared to run the fun with this whimsy game.

The colorful miniatures painted by the late Jeff Hudelson were out on full display and straining action.

Once again it was Vile Stagonia vs. Noble Alpia.

Sadly Alpia did not send out their best commanders, they had an average CiC, with a buffoon and elite wing commanders.  While only average commanders were on the field for Stagonia.

Deck two and the troops just get into motion.

By deck 3 there were more close contacts.

Vile Stagonian Knights were truly vile in victory over many foote formations.

By deck 7 there were fewer troops on both sides, though Stagonia held the advantage.

In deck 10 there was a moment of hope for Alpia, then it was dashed when the buffoon commander decided to retire from the battle.

Vile Stagonian foote then delivered the crushing blow to the disordered remnants of the Alpian army.

Vile Stagonian horsemen did hit hard, yet their casualties were too high and they ended up withdrawing from the field.

Vile Stagonian foote won this day with a crash from their firelocks.


Again Vile Stagonia was triumphant!
