Oh. My. God.
As determined as I am to beat Mike sometime, I messed this up badly.
Having said that, my Undead Rhino kicked ass using the rules for the Necrosphinx. I used to use him as a chariot (which made NO sense. Now the rules fit him perfectly (although Mike grumbled a bit).
The biggest disaster though was forgetting to use the Casket of Souls TWICE IN A ROW.
And forgetting the power dice enhancement!
Man, forgetting stuff is my Achiles Heel!
Mike and I have agreed to remind one another if this kind of stuff happens again so hopefully he can help me not screw up so much.
As an aside, the terrain looked great!
And keeping the Hierophant in a unit of horsemen worked fairly well. I hate having a single model who can lose the game for me who is also a points sink and powerful magic user. Keeping him safe tends to mean not using him to full potential.
God, I wish they'd got rid of that in the latest army book!
