After the ignominious wounding of my Vampire in the first game, I opted to keep him safer in my second game, a wiser choice as I was facing Reiklander mercenaries,with a pair of crossbowmen at BS 5, ready to pincushion anyone from afar.
My Dire Wolves and vampire flanked to the right (top of the board in this photo) while my zombies provided a meat shield for my Necromancer and Degs. The wolves accounted for themselves better than they have in Warhammer, one killing a champion and surviving till the end of the game. The vampire was sadly hampered by his -1M from game 1, and fluffed a charge (with a 12" range he would have been well in). Crossbow fire proved a real bane, with the slow movement of the zombies meaning I couldn't really get to grips with anyone, or risk exposure of my dregs and necromancer. The ghouls performed badly, and even with three attacks failed to hurt anyone. With casualties mounting I chose to rout rather than lose even more of my gang. The post game phase was not kind, with a dire wolf and ghoul dying of their wounds. One of my Dregs took a crossbow bolt to the arm and would miss the next game, further hampering my warband.
