    I thought about that, but even if you use his first die for Bretonnia instead, he still has a hit.

    To be fair, if Khorne were to miss 1 hit with 5 dice, we'd probably lose Orokos to his resulting rage.

    Round 6, Corruption phase

    Witch Hunters (remove corruption from Khorne at Hero) and Peasant Uprising (peasants increase resistance) are active
    citowg32r69.png

    Chaos effects:
    Norsca: Carnage (others cannot be summoned away) and Ecstasy (no dice from figures)
    Troll County: Flu (-2 to resistance) and Lies (+2 to domination for each noble or hero)
    The Empire: Lies (+2 to domination for each noble or hero) and Rotting (kill a cultist or warrior for each of N's corruption)
    Bretonnia: Cry (no corruption placed) and Shield (acolyte cannot die in battle)
    Tilea: Stasis (+2 PP for others)

    Domintion step:
    Norsca: +2 VP
    Troll Country: +2 VP
    Tilea: +2 VP

    Corruption step:
    Norsca: +3 DIAL
    Bretonnia: Cry more
    Tilea: +5 DIAL

    Check for Ruination:
    Norsca is the fifth and final region ruined (3 + 9); +5 VP
    Tilea would be ruined, but there aren't any more cards. So sad.


    Updated VP:
    Khorne: 33 VP
    Nurgle: 46 VP
    Tzeentch: 36 + 2 = 38 VP
    Slaanesh: 36 + 9 = 45 VP

    Round 6, End phase

    Board at the start of the end phase:
    citowg32r610.png

    1. Remove Chaos Cards from the Board - Shield fades

    2. Hero Tokens are resolved - A bloodletter falls in the Empire, and Khorne chooses a sacrifice in Estalia

    3. Resolve Old World cards - Witch Hunters fail to find any sign of Khorne

    4. Score Ruined Regions -
    Norsca: +8 VP, +4 VP

    5. Advance Threat Dials - Khorne, Tzeentch and Slaanesh each tick once
    Khorne:
    XX - Victory

    Tzeentch:
    25 - Upgrade

    Slaanesh:
    24 - Upgrade


    Updated VP:
    Khorne: 33 + 4 = 37 VP
    Nurgle: 46 VP
    Tzeentch: 38 VP
    Slaanesh: 45 + 8 = 53 VP

    6. Check for Game end -
    Khorne wins by DIAL victory; Slaanesh is too late in achieving 50+ VP

    Good game, everyone, and congrats to Capfalcon on his victory!

    Can't believe I basically came in last, esp. considering the heights I fell from early on. I say I came in last 'cuz I went for VP's after K started racking up the dials and I have the lowest despite having an OK dial.
    Well, CONGRATS Capfalcon! Good game all!

    Would have made for a more interesting ending if Tzeentch or Slaanesh had one more DIAL tick along the way, giving you the chance to also make DIAL victory this round.

    Really, the final round felt odd to me; once the Field of Ecstasy hit, I was expecting both Tzeentch and Nurgle to try to ensure they got some VP out of that region, with one of them taking second place away from Khorne. Instead, Tzeentch piled into Tilea and Nurgle used his power to prevent Slaanesh from taking points in the Empire, leaving him too weak to effectively run away from Khorne.

    Cap, did you have another Field of Carnage in hand, or no?

    I would have had to spend all my PP moving one at a time getting to Norsca, all the while opening myself up in The Empire and Troll Country to a possibility of another field, so heading to Norsca was never in my mind, personally.

    Good work, Capfalcon! That was a hard-fought win.

    I was a little confused by Aegis's failure to slide a Leper into Tilea ahead of the Temporal Stasis, but then again, it wasn't likely to have mattered. Even if you'd completely ignored my impending VP win, there just wasn't any way to get all your cultists to safety.

    Tzeentch and Nurgle made some bold upgrade choices this game; it's too bad they didn't pay off a little better.

    Re: my upgrade, I had a long and hard discussion over it in my notes, but I just couldn't opt for the safe play of Ruination over the underused GUO upgrade. I even noted that I'd rather take a loss by picking GUO and having fun, than picking boring Ruination.

    And it did get use! It messed up Tzeentch in combination with All Things Decay.

    Regarding playing Nurgle for the first time, some impressions I've had:

    Nurgle really, really suffers from PP. You don't have extra cultists so you have to get them all down to get points as soon as possible and you can't move them around all that much more as that's just wasting PP, so you have to focus on as few populous regions as possible. Then, when you're done with a region, unless you can get a Great Foul Consumption in play, you need to move everything to the next region and resume. I really do think, because of this limited mobility, Nurgle functions really well when he isn't ruining regions but rather soaking as much domination as possible from them while ensuring he comes in first in the end and gains points elsewhere. This is why I liked Estalia quite a bit. Aside from turn #1 (fuck you Slaanesh), I gained half the required VP from one region alone before it ruined which was great. But after that I didn't have enough setup to vault me over the top, even after offering Tzeentch the two first place regions (which, if I had dominated just a bit more or got some points from might have been enough to move past 50).

    Plaguebearers can also hurt your cultist spread, but I rather like them in that they can function incredibly well to mess with one person that can't really hit you back, namely Tzeentch. Has its uses in cutting down Khorne trying to steal corruption with cultists and Slaanesh before she gets her cultist upgrade, but since Tzeentch is likely to be next to Nurgle's sphere of influence, I view them as a very effective anti-Tzeentch weapon. This leads me to god matchups:

    Tzeentch - I feel like he's the god you can really screw with the most, by stealing corruption and lessening his influence with Plaguebearers. He can hurt you just as much, though, but he doesn't have the most damaging cards.
    Slaanesh - Fuck Slaanesh. She will, and can, without reprisal, screw you. She will ruin your domination attempts, and then sneak in corruption that you then have to get rid of. If she's on the opposite side of the map from her, I have yet to think of a way that can hurt her as much as she can hurt you with Nurgle and I don't think there is one. You either convince Khorne to hit her with the help of a Plague Touch, or you ask Tzeentch nicely for a Teleport to get to her yourself.
    Khorne - Khorne's probably gunning for you from the start. His battle cries are also a pain the ass, which is why I like the idea of clogging up your card slots in your home region of choice as fast as possible. If you do it soon enough, you might tempt him into playing figures rather than battle cries. I, oddly, don't view him as the most threatening (probably my downfall, but this was when we screwed him out of a double-tick). I think you can, as Nurgle, if you're playing slow-creep convince the Khornite there are better options to hit than you which will deflect most of his attention away from you.

    So, as Khorne, here's what I've decided.

    Don't worry about double ticking the first round. Make sure you tick, but, otherwise, just get spread out. If you jump ahead early like that, everyone else will just want to pummel you.

    And the cultist upgrade is the best thing ever. I can't ever see a time I'd get the other figure upgrades though.

    I can see maybe taking the daemon upgrade as third choice in lieu of the extra card.
