Not having played either race yet, I have decided that the best way of learning about them is to try out a balanced 24 health army of each with no monsters as a distraction.

Goblin Army

Lava Elf Army

I have not put any thought into these armies tactically except that I have used my own rules to get a balanced view of each army faction.

  1. Only 3 x 3 health units = 9
  2. 4 x 2 health units = 8
  3. 7 x 1 health units = 7
  4. No more than 2 of any particular unit.

I will be using this from now on to test other races, as it is quick and easy.

The sun shines on the battlefield this morning.

The goblins have the early advantage with 8 manoeuvres against 5 from the elves.

Goblins will take the first turn, lava elves select the feyland vortex as the frontier terrain.

The terrain distances also appear to produce a bit of variety.
