This is the first time I've fiddled with the report generator and I probably should have made more pics as the ones I've done are a little confusing. Still I hope you all enjoy it.

Shane has from left to right Manhides manflayers in the woods, pikemen, paymaster & bodyguard, pikemen, Borgio and the voland venerators, wizard in the woods (yellow), 10 crossbowmen (blue), cannon on a hill, and 5 heavy cav.

The game seems very 1 sided but in Shane's defense my dice were awesome and his failed him to the highest degree. So sad when good dice go bad. So what do you guys think? Comments?

Also I have another question I've been contemplating using the captain for something else. If I take away BSB, full plate then I can give him a doomfire ring. I'm not sure which is better honestly. The Knights and tank are really my main combat units and in this game at least the BSB never even came into play. I didn't move him hardly at all and most of the combat took place more than 12" away from him.

Didn't think the DoW stood much of a chance from the lists, shame as I love dogs of war and now of 3 armies of them. It seems like the Empire shooting phase was key, DoW just cant compete with Empire in that phase. Nice to see Borgio make an appearance though.

Thanks for the Rep.
