Yes, that picture IS the most awesome thing ever. You are correct!
Game 3 was versus a wonderfully painted Bretonnian player ran by Jordan Mail. Again, I was gifted with another great opponent even when things weren't going great.
James was running a Heroic Killing Blow general, a BSB, Heaven's Prophetess, 2 units of Knights of the Realm, 2 Trebuchets, a large unit of men at arms, grail knights and 3 pegasus knights. I have to admit, I was a little terrified, especially when I realized this mission was Blood and Glory! It only made sense for me in this one to take a secondary mission of capturing three banners. Either I do and win or don't and lose.
I was a bit worried about losing. Bretonnians can be devastating on the charge and if I flee from combat, I lose banners. I set up on one side of the sphinx, minus one sabretusk and the ironblaster. I was able to cannonball trebuchets off the table and my cat got rid of the grail knights.
In the middle I threw my gnoblars right up in front of the two units, causing them to both lose a ton when they charged into them and failed plenty of break tests. I left some room and counter charged, wiping the unit out pretty quickly. After that the other lance went down easy and that was game in turn three.
I felt genuinely bad for the fella. He was such a superb sport about everything that I wish it didn't go this way. Great looking army, great opponent... if I could ask for anything more it would have been a closer game.
So a comeback? Loss, Win, Massacre... that should put me high up on the tables, probably facing a tough opponent. And when I saw the next opponents list... I knew I was in for a fight!
