Even the best General can have a hard time deploying a large unruly army and frequently
this gives the opponent a chance to gain the jump on them.
Roll to start deployment. The winner of this roll may either chose side of the table or to
In this scenario players will take turns deploying a unit and if they do not have a unit to
deploy they may move a unit. Warmachines and characters must deploy together. After
a player places his characters he may deploy scouts as a normal deployment. If a unit
does not start on the board (for example ambushing beastmen, dwarven miners, or
gorgers) it must be still selected as a unit for placement even though its placement is off
the board. Thus the opponent may get to move a unit or place two consecutive units on
the board as a result.
When the first player finishes placing all their units they get to move one unit a normal
move (no march, charge, double moves, or flying moves may be made). This move may
be with a unit already moved but no unit may move closer than 12” of the enemy. This
free move is even made after the opponent places a unit which does not appear on the
board! This may allow an army to sneak up on the enemy as they deploy.
After both sides are finished deploying roll to see who goes first but neither player will
ever get a +1.

Sample Scenario 2
Armies in the Mist
Sometimes Armies happen to surprise each other as they advance across the world. And
sometimes they meet in conditions which are detrimental for combat but armies can not
always choose what is best for battle.
Scenario Special Rules:
As the armies were not expecting battle they must place all units on the board! There is
no ambushing, from below, mining, or summonsing of units from off the board except by
spells. All units must start on the board. Units which may not start on the board at all,
like the gorger, are at a -1 to appear and may never automatically appear.
There is no scouting or special deployment of any kind.
Roll to start deployment. The winner of this roll may either chose which side of the table
to have or who deploys first.
When it is a players turn to deploy his opponent chooses a unit warmachines are choose as one selection and characters must be choosen last. As there is no scouting these units can be choosen by the opponent but if some units could start off the board and enter later these a player must designate which of his own units will not start on the board. The player then can chooses where to place that
unit on the board within 12” of their own board edge. This continues until all units are
placed. Thus the opponent chooses one of your units and you then place that unit on the board!
At the end of six turns each player should count up the total unit size of models in each
board quarter. The player with the largest unit size in a board quarter controls that board
quarter and the player with the most board quarters wins the game.
