Defend against the Un-Dead, A Nightwatch game

The second scenario in the Night wish campaign involves defending a camp  and Derick the   mule guard against and attack by the enemy

Laid out my table to my  liking 

Derick the Mule guard holds information and must die this night

Placed in the centre of the  camp if the  Hunters die then so does he.

Placed the party in the best positions i could see and awaited the onslaught

2 hirelings with bows and one fighter

Eya finds the best place to take out the  enemy

the left is first to be attacked the bow men  trying to cut the odds down

Eya is eushed by a zombie

Leven aids a bow man tossing her grenados at the advancing Un-dead

Crom aids Eya his axe swinging but more  enemies advance

he fights one alone as the   vermin attack

Leven takes out a zombie with her dagger giving her room to throw her grenados and the bow man  to shoot

Crom faces more Zombies Eya trying to take them out before it comes to close and personal
Alan is attacked his spell disintegrating the zombie

As Crom is suffering and wounded the axe man helps and Eya fights hand to hand to save her friend

Leven throws a grenado dispatching the advancing enemy

Alan free of the left side casts into the  now massing Un dead

a bow man take out a single Zombie

Eya is fighting for her life now

The Skeletons are now in the camp and the hunters under pressure

A bow man faces the enemy alone

Leven heals Crom as Eya fends off a zombie

the bow man falls

Deadly hand to hand now as the  Un Dead swamp the hunters

Single bow men are  marked out, as dawn approaches , the  Un dead dwindle and the night is over

Only lost 1 bow man hireling, and  did the scenario,
As the last game it does get very tense late into the rounds, the relentless enemy's will get you if you don't  take them out And also the Mage and Alchemist paid there way, the spells and grenados saving the day. very happy with the game and  recommended for   people who like to fight things!

"Hell Road" Nightwatch game

 I eagerly awaited trying out the new Nightwatch game from Patrick Todoroff available from Drive through games. A solo cooperative wargame of  terror and treasures in a dark world. you select a party of hunters to complete  tasks and  scenarios, they must face mounting horrors as the game turns proceed.

My hunters  from left to right Crom the Blades man, Eya the Hunter, leven the  Alchemist and Alan the Macer. they were all imitates and had purchased 3 hirelings to help them, the scenario was number 1 Escort a lone survivor of a Caravan to a nearby town.

Laid the board out with the  portals and the  terrain.
The hunters start and must navigate to the other corner
Turn 1 the Vermin move to stop them
Crom and Eya go forward to clear the way
Alan is jumped by vermin and almost falls
A bowman hireling is attacked
Magic and  blades cut down the first wave
More vermin charge into the  Hunters
Crom clears them with his mighty axe
Leven throws her Grenados  causing much damage to the advancing vermin
as the game turns mount the horde arrives this is going to be bad
The portals spew forth Vermin and Horde who  charge and over whelm the back section of the hunters
A hiring is killed and another dragged into battle

Leven faces the undead and  tosses her wares into the  advancing foes, blast zones  cut them  up
Alan and leven stand back to back fending off the advancing horde and vermin
anther hirling is taken down as the pair  cast and throw, the undead still advance 
The  forward hunters are about to be over run when Alan casts Elemental fury, blasting them to hell where they belong

The pair are surrounded all hope is lost?

At last the hunters reach the end and escape  first scenario in the Bag

Wonderful game , easy to remember and is very  hard to get right, blades and bows are ok but spells and Grenados are  fantastic. I recommend  one of each type as a party. the  foes will get you and  health does go down fast so healing is a must. the horde instantly add a new larger threat to the party.

If you like  fantasy games have lots of unused minis please  give these a go.
