I went for a Tribal warband using my Pig Iron Miniatures that I had bought specifically for this game. Chris played the Caravaneers and used the excellent Copplestone miniatures.
The scenario was Cold Vengeance, which it is pointed out in the book is TNT at it's most simple. Chris loves ranged combat and I should have known that he would go for a sniper placed at a high point on the board. The sniper proved to be more deadly that all the other minis on the board combined.
The game flows very nicely, but my this initial venture into TNT and my experience of it was severely hampered by some atrocious dice rolling from me. We played 7 turns and I lost initiative in all of them. For the Activation Tests I was never able to put more than one or two activations together. This combined with the effectiveness of the sniper and Chris' use of Supressing Fire into melee (not sure if that is within the rules, but we decided afterwards that it can't be done) which got his models out of trouble against my melee focused Tribals made the game less enjoyable for me.
At the end of the game I had lost 6 out of 8 models (4 of them having been shot by the sniper).
As mentioned the game flows and I like the rules, which makes game play fast. Chris' biggest beef with the game is the jamming rules. Having a 10% chance of jamming on each shot is too much in his opinion, and I agree. This is easy to change though.
