crushing massacre suffered by the Nauticans

I fought a 3,000 point Warhammer Battle with the Nauticans....

Ouch, that hurt !

It was actually quite demoralising to witness. The battle was against Dark Elves who managed to whittle the Nauticans down to maybe 1/3rd of their starting size before combat began.

I confess I made a couple of errors:-

1) not deploying the sandgangers as a missile screen,
2) deploying the Leviathan too far away from the action
(to protect it from the 2 Dark Elf repeaters)

The game was one of the the least tactical I have ever fought, the armies basically just charged each other. There was very little maneuvering.

Having spent a day analyzing the results I have come to a few conclusions:-

1) The Nauticans need to be able to engage missile firing opponents more quickly.
2) The Nautican magical weapons are under powered and/or there are not enough options.
3) Nautican magic needs a revamp, the default spell needs replacing.
4) Some tweaks required on units.
5) Some special rules need to be simplified or removed.

I have also decided to remove the Undead and Ghost Ship and include them as an accompaniment to a Special Character, let's call him Blackbeard for now.

I will replace these undead units with new Nautican units.

That's it for now, I'll be making lots of updates over the next couple of weeks.
