Chaos Gods are perpetually challenged by other divinities, less powerful but animated by a thirst for glory without limits. The confrontations which result from these challenges are lead by the rituals of wars which define the places and the conditions which will govern the confrontation. The divinities of Chaos take a great care to observe these battles, the rituals of wars are agreed to give to the gods an interesting spectacle.
The Chaos Wastes abound of all kinds of strange battle fields, in these places, time and space have no rule and no reference. The hordes of servants are sent on these lands of misfortunes by their divinity, who enjoy to see them wandering in search of their rivals.
The battle which follows is a face-to-face between two hordes meeting after days of walk and tracking on the Chaos Wastes. These two armies are formed in columns and will have to hastily organize it in order to achieve their task expected so much.
I really enjoy to play skirmish games like Realm of Chaos (or other), but sometimes it’s really good for me to play a big game full of old lead… Here, I play against my annual opponent Finarfin.
With a large battle, a complicated scenario can handicap the gameplay, this is why, I simply modified the deployment phase. To represent the unexpected meeting of the two armies in column formation, The generals deploy (alternatively) their units following orders defined secretly before the battle. The presence of Gods on the battlefield is symbolized by using the Chaos gifts card from the fourth edition. Lastly, to reinforce the fact that we play on the chaos waste, it's possible that some Chaos monsters can be attracted on the battlefield by the noise of the combats.
