Ashton asked for some more Heroscape, this time asking to play with the frozen terrain. I pulled out the booklet and built The Battlefield of Frozen Souls and we played the Storm of Frozen Shards scenario. I ended up the defender of the glacier, which meant I got 450 points and had to have the Dzu-Teh as part of the army. Ashton thought that was un-fair, so he took a set for himself. After our draft, this is what we had - Ashton: Cyprien Esenwein, Sonlen, Warriors of Ashra, Dzu-Teh, Shades of Bleakewoode, and Kozuke Samurai. Me: Isamu, Dzu-Teh, Major Q9, and Nilfheim. Ashton has been dying to use the ghosts and I've been wanting to play with a dragon. It worked out for both of us. What didn't work out was Major Q9 vs Cyprien Esenwein. Ashton moved Cyprien first and rolled a 20 for his special, which hit Major Q9 for 6 points (and knocked him out) before I got to even do a thing. That single stroke of luck pretty much sealed my chance of winning. Though I was immune to the storms that happened each turn, thanks to a glyph, Ashton used Cyprien to take that from me. The first two storms helped me to kill a couple of Ashton's guys, but after losing the glyph, two storms knocked me out of the game. Ashton had two full squads still left as we finished the game.
