Song of Blades and Heroes Bash

Skeletal undead prepare to slay the living

We had a party and later in the evening an impromptu Song of Blades and Heroes game broke out. Terrain was thrown down quickly, random warbands hit the table and the soon the classic scenario "just kill everybody else" was under way.

We had five warbands:

  • Vampire with wolves and ghouls
  • Wraith with skeletons and wights
  • Alchemist with frankenstein monsters
  • Dwarf Orcslayer with cavalry and scouts
  • Cleric with undead hunters
A ghoul and wolves screen their vampire lord

Dwarven cavalry race to intercept their enemies

Alchemical golems batter their way through the woods

I could detail the shifting alliances, brokered power deals, backstabbing and double crosses, but I don't think even I kept it straight. 

A three sided battle breaking out, dwarves facing down golem and skeletons on the left,
with holy undead hunters fending off a wraith atop the hill

The wraith takes on the currently allied dwarves and undead hunters.

Wolves charge the newly allied undead hunters and golems after they slew the wraith

Essentially three groups ganged up on the dwarves, but when the table realized the vampire was hanging back. the melee cluster gradually worked its way towards him to make sure he couldn't simply pick off the wounded winners of the grand melee. Which he did anyway. 

The vampire lord wades into a battle, his ghouls having broken through the Allies' front line.

Still, fun game, easy to teach, and great to play when food and drink are flowing liberally.
