Battle Report & Review: SCGT Battleplan, Herald of the Storm

Today, I bring you something a little different, I played through the first scenario from the upcoming SCGT tournament 'Herald of the Storm', firstly I gotta say, this review is based on my opinion playing with just 2 armies, so the other possibilities are obviously endless.

I also approach this review in a more narrative way rather than giving you tactics on how to play the mission, I will try and give you ammo from playing the game with a story attached. The scenario lends itself to some great narrative. In this game between Adam James (@warhammernerd) and myself, the story was simple. The War Council formation led by Artur Sigi with their bodyguard of Fyreslayers led by Grominir, the Runefather on Magmadroth found themselves deep within the Realm of Life, travelling through some heavily overgrown landscape, in hand they had Sigmarite Hammers, sent on a mission from The Order of Sigmar to return them to Azyr. Suddenly they were ambushed by a Waystone Pathfinder formation led by a Native Nomad Prince, could they hold of long enough to secure the 4 locations on the board to open the Realmgate to travel to the next destination?
