The challenge goes down when she is in the middle of painting her old school Screaming Bell and boasting about it's incredible prowess and I can't help but retort with how awesome the Anvil of Doom is, even if I made it out of polystyrene myself and it doesn't look like any other anvil model.
"So I'll take my Jezzails and shoot your Anvil and yer Smithy then", she intones.
"Fine, then I'll take my gyrocopers and show you a bit of steam cannon owie!" I fire back.
"Then I'll get a Warp Lightning Cannon and the Warplock Engineer and blow everything up and take Stokesay and his Ratling cannon and more Jezzails and gutter runners and swarms of rats 'n loads of other stuff!" she yells, waving an imaginary warpstone staff in my direction.
"Then I'll take Burlock out of retirement and his flame cannon and thunderers and lightningers and zwergs with so much armour it will look like a Hadrian's Wall but made of metal and... and... if you beat me you can melt down the Anvil. For reals. Like melt it down with a bbq lighter or summing."
Well now I've done it.
Only the Anvil, mind. Not my precious metal miniatures.
The painting of units has increased on both sides and efforts to complete entire units are underway.
What happens if I win, (I hear some Dwarf players ask through the ether)?
This guy gets a trophy built for him.
