Tribal Primeval Campaign - game 1

We have been enjoying the Primeval expansion to Mana Press' Tribal rules. So we decided to try out "The Hunt" campaign starting with scenario 1, Tracking.

This was also a change to try out my newly made Primeval mat, which represents the fried out ice age plains of what is now southern France.

In this scenario, a tribe of Neanderthals, led by the one they know only as "Spoke", and Wolf clan of cro-magnons must try to uncover the mammoth spoor under one of the four leafy bushes (see below).
Here are the Neanderthals. Spoke himself has been delayed by a cunning ploy by the humans (one of the Wolf Clan's abilities).
 It became quickly apparent the Neanderthal stumpy little legs did suit them to this scenario. the long limbed humans could cover ground quickly.

Nevertheless, the hairy little guys did their best.

 In some cases getting to the objectives.

...but mostly not.

Tasting and sniffin the human controlled  human bushes, however did not reveal any mammoth spoor

So inevitably, it came to hand-to-hand combat. I couldn't bring myself to take any more pictures. Basically the humans were clubbed senseless by the tough little Neanderthals. The only fright the Neanderthals really got was when a wounded Skin Changer went berserk taking a new Neanderthals with him.
Scenario 2 is scheduled for next week.. It is clealy a mistake to mix it with these primitive beings, I think I might need some dogs.
