Marc dropped by last night with his freshly-painted Gothic Horror models, so we threw down the dungeon tiles and proceeded with a Chaos in Carpathia learning game. Marc may have been learning the rules, but I was also learning about the Mad Doctor’s creations as adversaries. Where both vampires and werewolves tend to have lightning reflexes in the combat department, the doctor’s creations are tough… like, really tough. The Monster himself has a damage resistance of 7 which, to my knowledge, is the highest in the game. Either way, it was a fun time and I think that Marc is a convert.
Furthermore, the add-on campaign focuses on completing objectives, and with each major victory, a player can add a new character to his roster. His roster becomes a master list from which he can choose his warband before each scenario. It strikes me as a far friendlier method of warband growth and advancement for painters and players alike. I’m sure we’ll try it out and make a decision. Either way, the story of Dertflinghan will proceed, and what sub-plots the mad doctor brings to the story shall remain to be seen.
Thanks for reading,
