I picked up a second starter set of eBay, minus the minis, and created an extra set of cards and tokens. Now I have enough stuff to play an 8 player game. The only think I need now are 2 more of the gladiators, one is on the way and I'll pick the last one up soon. The plan is to use both boards side by side. If that doesn't work we will use the game mat for Hoplomachus.

Also, I know the bat wing symbol is for the Night Lords, I just thought it looked pretty cool

Amazing!

If I could offer some advice, I'd be tempted to reduce all the numbers on the Wrath track by 1. Test this out, obviously, but my first thought is that one round is gonna take a very long time to complete with 8 players, meaning the Wrath mechanic (whereby your actions affect the number of initiative cards you get next round) won't have as much of an impact. Reducing the number of cards players get will make the rounds a bit shorter, and should stop this being an issue. But yeah, try it out – and make sure you report back!

Thanks James I'll give that a try and let you know.

Any thoughts on bringing other chaos champions into the mix? I'd love to see some rules for the Blightkings, the Lord of Plagues, The Ogroid Thaumaturge or the Curseling.

We have a 6 player league going and currently use 2 boards. I'm thinking of putting the 2 boards together for a season finale, so was just wondering how you went with this and James' suggestions?

I'm actually hoping to get an 8 player game to the table tomorrow. I haven't had chance yet to play. I'll let you know how it goes.

Well, only 3 other people showed up, so I wasn't able to get an 8 player game in. But on the plus side this happened. I had 6 wounds and took a Headshot critical. I guess it wasn't my time.



I actually rallied and took out the other player. KHORNE!
