Black Sheep Brawl IV: Scenario 5

In the final epic battle of the Black Sheep Brawl IV, your ability to score loyalty points in the previous four games will play a role in your fate.  Hope that you have done enough to gain the Black Sheep's support, for you may have heard things like "get another pair of eyes on this", or "two minds are better than one", but two armies utterly destroy one.  Don't let your army get wiped out like the Sauron's forces at Minas Tirith during the Battle of the Pelennor Fields.

Black Sheep Brawl IV: Scenario 4

Drink your coffee Sunday morning, because you will be playing a game within a game.  Like two players on Survivor frantically searching for a hidden immunity idol, you will compete to find the card that matters on the battlefield.  Will you pretend to have found it when you haven't to push a battlefield advantage?  Will you ignore the terrain, letting the other army find it first, then savagely beat it out of them?  We shall see.

Black Sheep Brawl IV: Scenario 3

In the last game of day 1 of the Black Sheep Brawl, you will be playing "Race to the Wizard's Tower".  In this scenario you will be challenged to both get in the haunted mansion (wizard's tower) as soon as possible to start earning loyalty points, and deal with the opposing army that is right in your face 18" away.  Will you rack up all the points?  Or will the spirits in the mansion drive your forces away?  Manage your enemy and control the mansion for a strong finish on day 1.

Black Sheep Brawl IV: Scenario 2

Today we bring you our game 2 scenario for the Black Sheep Brawl.  In this scenario, "Protect the Wagons", you'll have an extra model in your army!  But it may prove to be a bit of a liability.  Although it has some nifty special rules, it can prove a challenge to deliver safely to your opponents deployment zone.  Don't forget it's a chariot too, so it's got impact hits, but also cannot march.

Scenario 2 is also special because for the first time at the Black Sheep Brawl we are having a hobby challenge related to it.  We encourage everyone to make their own model on a chariot base to bring that will represent their loot wagon.  We'll have players vote on their favorite one and award a prize to the winning entry.  If you are up to your neck in work just to get your army painted in time, no worries!  We'll provide a stylish dwarven pony cart model to use for anyone who doesn't bring a custom one.

Black Sheep Brawl IV: Scenario 1

This is the first in a series of posts highlighting the 5 scenarios that will be played at the upcoming Black Sheep Brawl IV.  Scenario 1 is called "Raid the Burial Mounds" and is a twist on the Dawn Attack scenario in the main rulebook.  The main modification being the addition of burial mounds which you want to hold at the end of the game to earn loyalty points.  Don't that let you hold back from establishing yourself on them early though.  Being there first can matter, and they're dangerous terrain to any models that might charge over them to engage your unit holding them.  Another important difference this this scenario is that both flanks and center sections are equally sized at 24" to soften the impact of random deployment.
