For the final day of the year it was time for a mighty battle. Tom couldn’t find the Ogres so the battle would be Dwarfs with Kislev allies vs my Empire and Wood Elf allies.
I threw in some flashy do dads, Luminark, War Altar and Steam Tank, plus a horde of Spearmen. Tom dropped his Scouts behind my line to keep me on my toes!
Mighty winged lancers with slightly wonky lances
Tom’s line, horse archers moving up.
Behind my line Bugman’s finest are being very menacing.
But with spells, arrows and the will I reduced the threat!
But more threat was on it’s way. The Hammerers are the real danger so I concentrated fire on them.
Not terrified of the of the Kislev cavalry though!
My line is bent out of shape by the pesky rangers. I should have thought of that in set up!
The blasting began and the Kislev cavalry were removed
The arrival of the Glade Riders won me the left flank!
The Hammerers also got a roasting
Before they ploughed into a hedge hog of death.
Longbeards even fighting over a wall were more than a match for my halberdiers with a witch hunter. Shouldn’t have moved the War Altar!!!
Halberdiers and Hammerers gone. Outriders down to one man, a brutal round of shooting.
But the longbeards were now in a killing field!
I also had a unit of warriors deep in my deployment zone
This is my dead pile, it also contains the lone surviving Ranger champion.
Wood Elf Glade Guard, over 30 years old defend their wood
I prepare a nasty environment for the Longbeards
After spiking a cannon the pike block moves on
I slam the War Altar into the Longbeards, this doesn’t work anywhere near as well as I hoped
I break and run
But the battle is mine!!!
Tom and I need to work out how to link a series of games for next year that encourages painting!!
Happy new Year!
