So you're using the battle report thread to hold the pictures and the project thread to hold the reports? :confused:


Anyway, great pictures. All the armies are really well painted.

Picture reports are actually fun to read as long as there are pictures for each turn.

Thanks about the pictures. To answer your question, I didn't realise there was a battle report page until someone mentioned it last night. I kind of feel stupid as I had posted my battle report on the painting log. I'm only going to post the best pics here. Not all of them.

Dark Elves.

Orcs vs Dark Elves. Another victory for Great Shaman Buttstinka!


The boarboyz get peppered to death by unit of multiple crossbows and whatever da effeminate elves call their spearchukka. the orcs move forward.


The squiggies, savage orc boyz and savage orc great shaman on chariot charge hydra. Hydra can't take the heat and just flees. Spearchukkas firing at large target and superbly skilled doomdiva take off 5, ye 5 wounds off said woofta of a hydra.

DE player decides good idea for dark riders to charge 10 savage orcs with extra hand weapons. Dark riders join Khaine.


Harpies fly in front of savage orc big boss in chariot. He can't help himself. Charges them and brings himself into charge range of 3 cold one knights (3 because our mate doomdiva whacked 2 of em). at least harpies trip, roll 3 inch flee and get wiped in process. fatboy takes out champion cold one in challenge, but loses by 1 CR and flees and dies.

hydra bites dust.


3 scouts charge back of chariot. Someone needs to have a word with this DE player about relative strengths and weaknesses of the waaaaagh! Scouts get wiped but outrun chatiot, only to get wiped later.

black guard + doomlord unit lurk about, being judiciously avoided by all O&G players (who remember charging one last year in rear with wyvern, front with chariot and flank with wolf riders - AND LOSING!!!!)

photographer leaves. black guard eventually start turning all out defeat into narrow defeat, taking BSB black orc big boss and 23 orcs down, but then whittled down just to doomlord by orc artillery. Great shaman charges remaining big unit, DE spearmen + assassin, in flank, killing 6 with impact hits and 3 in H2H (I love DE T3) forcing it to retreat into gobbo artillery and death. Last of squiggies shot down by boltthrower but savage orc boys kills boltthrower and chase wizard.

3 cold one knights butchered by 20 night gobbos in CC and chariot runs over last fleeing standard bearer.

A MORE THAN MARGINAL (BUT NOT MAJOR) VICTORY FOR THE WAAAAAGH!

Not sure if it's worth painting the wyvern. If I use it in battle, it will just get magiced or shot at.

It's worth it for sure.

Even against empire I still manage to get mine into combat each time.

You just have to use terrain to your advantage and use your waaagh in sneak ways ;)

Tried 9 fanatics v DEs. Goodbye blackguard! But not enough units left to fight cold ones (who were more than match for 6 charging savage orc boarboyz) and 24, yes 24 DE spearmen (with assassin) who lasted 3 rounds of combat against 23 orcs charging with Black Orc warboss, Black orc big boss, each on boars, insided the unit...until remainder of cold ones from savage orc combat joined this combat, and won in round 4!


The gobbos, packed with fanatics, move towards black guard. The orcs move towards DE spearmen.


The savage orc boarboyz charge the cold one knights who flee at first; the dark riders move towards the squig hoppers and wolf boys...a mistake. The wolves simply flee.


6 fanatics are released into the black guard - absolute devastation, though only half make the 8 inches.

The squiggies charge the dark riders, stuck in the brook in a failed charge against the wolves. The dark riders become squigmeat.

Yummy - squig chow...why do DE players bother with Dark Riders...only work against noobs who don't have flank units of their own...DE player...always trying it on.
Showing remarkable lack of insight, I have no choice but to allow squiggies to pursue dark rider into wolves, lining both units up for flaming with hydra's breath weapon. Peppering from 21 night gobbo archers has only done 1 wound. Regen seems to be working this game...and Dimitar's stupid river (which again he insists remains on table) stops 3 debris swinging fanatics from coming out and smashing up hydra on other side of brook. Hydra and night gobbos end up in face off on opposite sides of brook - peppering not enough to kill hydra - hydra not stupid enough to take same punishment as blackguard. Though 2 squiggies survive and go chowtime some level 1 wizrad thingy with poor hairstyle on horse, before being flamed again and rejoining the nitrogen cycle.

I really admire how you guys appear to play purely wysiwig and 99% painted armies on a board that does all that hard work justice.

Cheers! It's very hard amassing a painted army. It took a year's worth of Saturday mornings for that entire army to be painted. You also have to be able to paint, and enjoy doing it. I don't think most people fall into both those categories. The next project is the Empire. That should take another year, if the inspiration lasts.

i was previously concerned about the model for the gigantic spider, as the pic on the gw website doesn't appear to have any depth... in the context of how flat/thin it looks in the gw pic, i thought it was a rather silly looking model. i see now that's not the case though :D

Orc Civil War. Gork v Mork, or rather Savage Great Shaman on chariot gets uppity (on behalf of Sir Shvants) against Dan's (much more professionally painted) barbarian horde led by black orc warboss. Dan lines up along tower edge of table. Sir Shvants lines up along hill edge.

sir_shvantselot
14-06-2009, 18:13
Sir Shvants' savage orc boarboyz shout from hill, but don't move forward, as want to avoid charging 25 black orc unit with BSB without squggie support from flank. Dan's spearchukkas position themselves behind fence. Sir Shvants cannot figure out why 25 black orcs are standing behind tower (apart from avoiding artillery fire).

sir_shvantselot
14-06-2009, 19:44
Sir Shvants' right flank advances. The wolfboys run up to spider riders and pepper them to no effect. Sir Shvants doesn;t bother with magic whole game, as dan has clearly taken idol of mork and double rolls lead to special cr*ppy orcy miscast table.

sir_shvantselot
14-06-2009, 20:02
Sir Shvants' wolfboyz on left flank pepper squiggies and kill a couple. Dan moves black orcs into building, worried about being outflanked by Sir Shvants' squiggies and savage boarboyz to front.

sir_shvantselot
14-06-2009, 20:10
One of Dan's magic missiles rolls 2D6 6s and wipes out Sir Shvants' squiggies unit. Sir Shvants charges spearwielding gobbo wolfboyz into dan's chariot on right flank. Chariot loses combat, and flees off table...

sir_shvantselot
14-06-2009, 20:17
One of Sir Shvants's 3 chariots elects to charge giant, fails terror test and ploughs back through (after some debate) both the night gobbo archers and orcy boy unit, causing quite low casualties, but taking chariot virtually off table...it doesn't come back and eventually just goes off table. Sir Shvants learns that even if you are forced to stack units, never put chariots in front of your other units.

On left flank, Sir Shvants' savage orc big boss with martog's best basha and extra crew crash into Dan's squiggies. Impact hits and the fat loony kill all squiggies before any hitback..and fatboy overruns into 5 spider riders on right flank. I love fatboy.

Doomdiva, thanks to GW's amazing modular table, strikes giant, taking off 3 wounds, spearchukka takes off another 2.

sir_shvantselot
14-06-2009, 20:37
All squiggies on table meet horrible end. But Sir Shvants suffers more, as savage orc boarboyz on hill now unlikely to neutralise black orcs on their own. The only issue with tag team tactics, if tag goes, team gets wiped.

Sir Shvant's 21 night gobbo archers pepper fleeing giant, all four ranks, and giant loses final wound.

sir_shvantselot
15-06-2009, 12:57
Fatboy ploughing through squiggies, wiping em out to the last squig. Did I say...I love fatboy...

Dan places spider riders next to one night gobbo unit, forcing neighbouring night gobbo unit to release fanatics. Although they can be released in any direction, Sir Shvants elects to aim first fanatic at spider riders, only understanding later that the rules are such that both the spider riders and night gobbos in the way take hits. Night gobbos take some hits, but the spider riders are wiped. The second fanatic is released, more sensibly, into the path of Dan's big un orc unit. Fanatics a bit of a waste of 100 points between the two night gobbo units, not doing 100 points worth of damage, at least not to Dan. Dan never took any fanatics.

sir_shvantselot
15-06-2009, 13:02
Till now, Dan has been taking a veritable pummelling, but Sir Shvants' units in too much of a disarray positionwise to do tagteam thing they need to win. Frenzy starts causing probs for Sir Shvants. The savage orc great shaman has to charge big uns on his chariot without waiting for support. He challenges Black Orc Warboss but skull wand of kaloth doesn't work...Dan rolls a 9. Shaman survives combat with only one wound, but flees, and then in Sir Shvant's turn flees again, off nearest table edge, through the night gobbo unit, causing more impact hits to poor little gobbos.

The savage orc boarboyz have to charge down hill into 25 black orcs and BSB. They only lose one boy and cause two wounds, but flee cos of combat res, flee again in Sir Shvants' own turn through one bolt-thrower, taking it off board.

sir_shvantselot
15-06-2009, 15:56
Fatboy ploughs into rear of gobbo shaman in spearchukka crew, wiping all out with impact hits, then being forced to overrun because of frenzy, ploughing through fence, and chariot being destroyed with own impact hits...whooo hoooooo. Fatboy was defo Sir Shvants' man of the match.

It is turn 6. Dan has 23 Black Orcs left and 15+biguns with a BSB and warboss. Sir Shvants has...fatboy on foot, a spearchukka, doomdiva that has misfired twice in a row, 5 wolfboys, 10 night gobbos and...defeat :(

The Black Orc warboss declares victory and the surviving orcs of both sides join him on his path towards the Waaaaaaaaaaaaaagh.

sir_shvantselot
15-06-2009, 16:03
Photos from the beginning of the battle.

Lessons:

1) Don't take more than 1 fanatic per unit...waste of points;

2) don't put chariots in front of other units, ever;

3) think more carefully about making sure chariots and boarboyz are supported when they do their tag team thing.

Now that's what i call epic fail. >.<

You were winning before i left. You need to learn to understand frenzy better, and how to get the most out of your frenzied troops. Just moving them up doesn't work unless you're a chaos knight with 4+ buddies. Screen with your fast cav and work out charge angles, had your Shaman Lord been a bit more forward he'd have been in the flank of the Big'uns and being US5 he would negate their ranks making the odds a hell of a lot more favourable.

On a different note, Dan's painting is immense, and the Squig Hound is the best model ever, ever.

Daemon Battle!

What can I say, this game was yet another victory for the might of Waaaagh Skumbag...the orc shaman lord with bigged's kickin boots and skull wand of kaloth - adding another herald general dude skull to his collection - you think odds are on beating a LD8 test, think again...

minor victory overall....AGAINST DEMONS


Fatboy rattles into battle on the pimp mobile. The demon player quakes in fear - look at the shaking hand in background...


The night gobbo archers rush for cover into the old chapel. The bloodletters continue to wish they had made a pact with a more benevolent Chaos G-d, seeing as the orc horde is about to chew their a$$.

The squiggies rush towards the demon flank. The big boyz on chariots reposition themselves to squish, the wolf riders circle behind the horrors, ready to take them from behind. savage boyz get ready to squish horrors.


Herald flies behind the lines...to cause massive magic havoc with flickering fire of tzeench three times in a row. Mork's spirit totem good, but not good enough. 2 dispel scrolls not enough.
Doomdiver continues to squish flamers, but the rolls 1 on misfire chart...goodbye doomdiver.

Blob enters building. Everyone out of the pool! Gobbos flee. What are the chances against greater demon of Nurgle?

Herald continues to fly around throwing off spells.

Savage orc boss in chariot with Martog's best basha smites herald no.2 in challenge, then flees cos of combat res with ranked unit into hard terrain, a building, and dies, lining up remaining bloodletters for combo charge from boarboyz and chariot no.2. demon player concedes minor defeat and goes back to hell. I praise MOrk that will not have to try dispel 3 attempts at flickering fire of tzeentch per turn and game is over...in VICTORY.

Bob - do a battle report for each set of pics. That way people will be able to see your ingenious battle-winning strategy:

turn 1 - demons march - armour saves and ward saves prevent any casualties from enemy fire. 15 point battle standard renders all enemy magic useless;

turn 2 - demons march - armour saves and ward saves prevent any casualties from enemy fire. 15 point battle standard renders all enemy magic useless;

turn 3 - demons front charge enemy. demons lose combat, but don't run;

turn 4 - demons lose onoing combat again, but again don't run;

turn 5 - demons have wittled down enemy, win combat. enemy has to take something called a break test, and runs.

unfortunately, hiccup in plan, khorne hounds get combo charged by pegasus and steam tank - only demon unit to die...but hey, what's a steam tank to demons...

Wood Elf player forgets fast cavalry rules apply to pistoliers...who nip round behind hero on great eagle and pepper him with shots, though causing only one wound before eagle flew off to munch cannon on Empire hill. Pistoliers later get shot by elven archers in building, though, equally, Elven fast cav units decimated by Stirland scouts in building on opposite side of table. You can see em in third pic. Steam tank steams towards elven archers hiding behind wall, waiting to plough through wall like König Tiger.

sir_shvantselot
28-06-2009, 18:23
Dryads charge steam tank, but don't have combat res stack up to win, so flee, and eventually continue fleeing off table when steam tank generates more steam points to chase. Steam tank then chases spellsinger off table. Steam tank only goes down to 8 wounds in course of game.

Wardancers dance in front of spearman unit with detachcment of 10 swordsmen. 22 wardancer attacks!! But only causes 6 wounds, and detachments rule means flank, plus ranks, plus two ranks of attacking spearmen, so wardancers lose, flee and get run down...yoo hoo.

Marginal victory for the Empire.

Ogres v Empire. Empire lost :(

Those two leadbeclhers crept up the left flank and took a few shots at 10 handgunners on a hill and cannon next to it. Didn't hit much. After a couple of turns, the cannon and handgunners wiped them out.

My unit of huntsmen took a couple of wounds of two leadbelchers on the other flank, then got charged by them, so fled the building. Didn't do much for rest of game. Giant charged the two leadbelchers when they left the building and killed them, slowly. Unfortunately, ogres fall under the large creature table for giant attacks...so only damage to one model per turn.

sir_shvantselot
26-07-2009, 18:16
Ogres v Empire. Gnoblar huntsemn (whatver they are called) charged one of my cannon. Crew bravely fought them off, assisted after first round of combat by charging handgunners off hill.

sir_shvantselot
26-07-2009, 18:21
This is where it kind of started going wrong for the empire. I allowed an ogre unit to charge my spearmen (griffon standard, 30 spearmen, so outnumber, standard, battle standard - static combat res of 9) alas, another small ogre unit charged the detahcment, which rolled double one when fled, so got wiped (you can see in second pic). And that ogre unit had a tyrant and ogre wizard thing in it, so it caused 11 wounds on spearmen, who fled. Ogres overran into grey knights, who they also wiped out. Then I ran out of dispel dice and scrolls, brain goblin cast on greatsword unit, who failed LD and ran into back of tyrant unit, so all main ranked units in centre died...

Must say though, cannon were amazing in the game. Gorger came onto field and stood in grapeshot range of one cannon, which took off three wounds...the gorger ate it and crew, then got hit by cannon ball from other side of the table, and died.

Giant got ready to take on all sorts...

sir_shvantselot
26-07-2009, 18:24
You can see tyrant unit mincing the wolf knights. You can also see one of the most beauiful cannon shots of all time, through flank of the tyrant unit, with both characters failing "look out sir" - half unit wiped out...

sir_shvantselot
26-07-2009, 18:26
The giant continues to fight everyone for two turns...ogres have no artillery - their rhinox thing got the "balls in a ratchet" misfire thing in turn one, and all leadbeclhers were minced by turn two. But the giant has no armour, and can only kill one ogre at a time each turn with eabutt and swing with club etc being limited to one model. Giant eventually surrounded and...eaten.

At the end of the game, the empire has huntsmen, a cannon and handgunners. The ogres have tyrant with a couple of wounds left (and a couple of mates in his unit of heavy armoured dudes (forgot what they called), about three ogre units of 3 and fifteen gnoblars...so ogre victory :(

Soooooo shouldv'e used new Karl Franz on dragon model...

As the ogre player in this game I can agree that this was the critical bit and in may ways I got very lucky, not so much with the dice (I think the dice rolls tended to even themselves out) but with the positioning of the models
- in charging the spearmen I was in charge range by about 1 cm
- in following up into the knights I only just clipped that unit
- my positioning of the unit to cover a flee by the greatswords was entirely by luck

It was a reminder how important movement and positioning is in WHFB, but I cannot claim much credit for it.

The orc horde...3 orc chariots, gobbo chariot and...loadsa gobbos versus, the skaven horde (yes set up took over an hour). Marginal victory to the smelly rats...which in the circumstances i thought was pretty good.

the squig hoppers get devastated by 5 jezzails, but go on to eat two wind globadiers...before being shot to death by about 20 gutter runners on the far edge of the table.

sir_shvantselot
14-08-2009, 20:55
Fat boy (savage orc boss on chariot) charges into about 5 rats with large flails who carry some kind of poison...and wipes em out, and overruns into clan rats...kills quite a few, but rats pass LD. then slaves flank charge...fatboy loses by 1 CR and...flees past front of whole skaven battle line. i I kind of did not co-ordinate units properly again this game. Don't know much about Skaven, and just let them advance without rushing into the horde, in case there was any nastiness in there.

Skitterleap leads Greyseer into flying all round my lines casting some kind of pestilence spell that wipes out half a unit per turn. Shooting kills me too. Who wrote the rules for ratling guns and warp cannon thing!!!? Orcs suffer massive casualties, but lots more where they came from, so stayed in game.

sir_shvantselot
14-08-2009, 20:56
There goes fatboy fleeing in front of Skaven line.

Showing some awareness of tactics, and being quite surprised at naivety of v experienced opponent, I set a trap by running wolves in front of rat ogres just in front of the wall, taking a few shots, and electing to flee when charged by said rat ogres (see third pic above with fleeing wolves). This lines rat ogres up for countercharge by the one my girlfriend calls the "bumshuffler" (cos all wrapped up like baby in cloak) a level 3 orc great shaman in chariot with biggeds kickin boots and...skull wand of kaloth. roll 3 hits and rat ogres mess up 3 LD tests, so three die, one further died from impact hits and handlers all murdered by frenzied boars. rat player...not happy.

unfortunately, bumshuffler in a frenzied stupor then has to overrun, and crashes through wall, losing the chariot 3 wounds...i would love to say i saw that coming, but didn't reckon on wiping out whole unit, but unfortunately my long term strategic vision is not that great. on the other side of the wall, the 20 night runners rush bumshuffler from the flank and kill him...

sir_shvantselot
14-08-2009, 20:58
Finally a chance to take pot shots at grey seer. He survives this turn...but in subsequent turn gets hit in the head with a goblin bolt (and D3 wounds).

sir_shvantselot
14-08-2009, 21:01
Having been massively devastated by magic and shooting (who gave rats 12/13 power dice!!!?) for four turns, the doom diver has started taking out various things, but orcs are still way behind...but then a stroke of genius occurs to me...the wolves have been pi$$ing rats off by riding about with 18 inch movement and not foing very much, but then i see they are lined up facing flank of whole remaining rat battle line...

wolves charge...little rat swarm flees, overrun into clanrats, who lose combat and flee...and run through whole battle line causing quite a lot of panic.

game starts to balance out.

finally, orc unit with mork's spirit totem and savage orc boarboys (or what's left after warp lighting cannon has hit them twice!!!!) wipe out some large unit with character.

rats win, but only a marginal victory...

and that's only cos rat player (intelligently) moved some unit into an unoccupied table edge. i don't normally count up points etc as meticulously as this...but something to bear in mind if i ever actually do foolishly enter a tournament.

go wolfies go go :)

good game. skaven player knows his stuff. v educational.

Amazingly, yes...I won against VC - I will do proper battle report when I get a moment.

The flank charge against the Skaven was a combination of ingenious insight...and fluke of set up. It was only a marginal victory anyway...mostly as a result of some cunning table grabbing in final turn on part of Skaven player - he's pretty hot stuff - I learned a lot from the game.

I am going to enter the Orc army into the summer competition in UK GW for each store - I reckon I will win (unless this other dude with serious artistic talent and his own Orc army finds out and enters...his army is in a battle rep a few pages back in this thread).

Sir Shvants commentary: Empire vs Lizardmen. Minor victory to those skanky lizardmen...not that I am bitter!!!! Did I say I haaaaaaaaaaaaate those skanky little poisonous skinky skanky archers? In a game totally dominated by the strategic and tactical genius that is Sir Shvants, those skanky little poisonous skinky archers won the game for the lizards on points alone! I.e. on turn six, the lizards had nothing left to defend themselves, entirely at the mercy of the war machine of the empire, when the skink skirmishers fired however many sixes at the unit of greatswords with general and wizard in it who failed panic test after half a dozen casualties, taking a three hundred points with them. I mean, not that I am bitter, er...but the super killy griffon spearmen unit, steam tank (ok so ieven if i had won...it would have been with some cheese) were slowly cleaning up with, by that stage, little opposition. Anway, we will get there.

OK, so in turn one, the cannon and helstorm take out a couple of pteradactyls. Pteradactyls don't flee and drop rocks on pistoliers with wizard on horse in unit, killing a couple, with remainder butchered by two of those spine throwing things. Chameleon skinks and skinks take out griffon with poisonous attacks. I kind of forgot about that and did not keep griffon away from them.

Sir Shvants has learned not to crash into ranked units with highish strength, as this is a good way to lose the 300 point steam tank or make it useless via loss of wounds v steam points calculation. accordingly, sir shvants avoids the kroxigor unit and lizardmen with hero in it. although the steam tank runs rings around the lizardmen unit for a couple of turn, taking out a fair number of lizzies with steam gun (with pretty impressive and accurate work unpredictably from the helstorm reducing this unit 2 guys and the hero by turn 5 - yes he got half points for that!!!! am i bitter ...yes!!!) and then charging kroxis in the rear whilst they were in combat with the greatswords, this might have been the source of the empire's loss - should probably have done some more damage earlier to the lizzies and kroxis, so would have been totally wiped out by turn 6, not half. lizzies don't know what to do about steam tank - simple, charge it!!! it cannot hit back!!! anyway, like aztecs and spaniards, it's fear of metal that just makes em hide.

Angry with chamelon skinks for killing griffon, Sir Shvants charges greatswords at them, forgetting that all they have to do is...yes...flee.

Detachment of swordsmen charges razordons that have been reduced by cannon and rocket fire. Razordons join dinosaurs and dodos in evolutionary scale...

Static combat res 9 (I think) griffon unit is charged by another unit of lizzies. Strange given that lizzies know SCR is 9. Predictably, lizzies lose and run. This brings griffon unit into charge range of lord lizzie and 5 cold ones, who charge. Griffon unit flees, so cold ones redirect charge into detahcment that killed razordons, detachment gets wiped, i mean it had lizzie lord with blade of realities and lizzies overrun, commically aligning themselves parallel in some road runner scene with fleeing griffons. griffons rally and, in the only time i have ever rolled double six on a spell, benefit from some secret lurker spell that allows them to charge flank of the cold ones, who lose on combat res, and flee up the hill towards empire artillery, which in subsequent shooting phase grape shots a couple...but not enough to reduce points.....!!!

The greatswords last one round of combat with kroxis/skinks to front, detachment on side (but no longer unit strength 5) and in second round of combat steam tank crashes into rear wiping 8 skinks on impact. On combat res, kroxis lose, and flee and die. The hero and his unit of lizzies, which has been reduced by artillery (some damn fine shooting from the helstorm, if I do say so myself) to just the hero, and his two mates, out of annoyance charges into rear of steam tank and causes a couple of wounds.

this is where the skinks fire at the greatwords, who flee (with level 2 wizard and general of the empire with loads of magic stuff) i.e. about 400 points, i would say. i had 780 points on table, lizzies 900 plus a table quarter. a really fun game, and lizzie player is a superb bloke. much fun had by all. i am thinking of modelling a crucified skink onto the steam tank somehow.

Empire wizard: Oh wise Croak lord we have travelled far and yearn to know the answer to this question:

What is the secret to vanquishing the foe?


Croak lord: ....Cheese, much cheese my son.... preferably demons. You must seek the counsel of the cheese master .... you must seek Bob....

I haven't posted a battle report for a while but I had to share this warriros of chaos v orcs game with you. In terms of line up:

WoC: nurgle wizard on nurgle chariot, 2 x 20 or so nurgle warriors, 5 marauder horse, 5 khorne knights, an exalted on juggernaut (yes, he goes with khorne knights - those scary shiny red guys in the pic below), 5 chosen and...a hellcannon.

OnG: 2 x spearchukkas, doomdiver, lobba, 40 night gobbos with bows and gobbo battle standard bearer, 5 savage orc boarboys with war banner, 10 savage orc boyz, 21 orc boyz and black orc warboss on wyvern and 2 x 6 wolfriders, big boss on chariot and gobbo shaman on chariot.

Sunday gaming in GW Brent X...so all the above crammed into a 4x4.

Turn 1 was scary - hellcannon killed 6 night gobbos, who had to take fear test cos of hellcannon rules at minus 1 LD, but they were within 12 inches of warboss...and survived, but I was terrified hellcannon would take out a unit per turn with panic. I fired everything I had at the hellcannon, precision range guessing being laid useless by wildy deviating artillery dice.

The chaos horde rushed forward and I was terrified of being steamrollered by the chaos war machine through my centre...which has happened about 6 times in the last month...but then a stroke of genius...in turn two I rode the gobbo wolf riders on the left flank into charge range of the khorne knights, who had to charge...but then had to stop 8 inches away from the neighbouring night gobbos unit...why that, my opponent asked...orcs and gobbos these days being so prehistoric, nobody knows whether they are just a Lord of the Rings army...out came three fanatics, which I pushed through the wolfboyz, taking out 3 or so...but taking out three khorne knights too!!! they actually never got as far as the khorne knights, but they had to finish their charge with force of momentum. they crashed into 10 savage orcs, wiped them out to a man, and then crashed on into fat boy, the savage orc boss with martog's best basha on chariot -yes they all get frenzy, who was terrified. in my turn though massive gobbo unit rolled 6 on the waaagh table and so did not have to take a fear check to wheel into the juggernaut and khorne knights' flank...he challenged with the champion, gladly accepted by fatboy, who with double boar attacks and 4 of his own wiped a couple of overkill points off the champion...the exalted on juggernaut killed five gobbos..but I won by 1 on combat res...and the remaining Khorne knights fled off the table...which is why they are unfortunately not in the pic...

The chaos horde was angry about the loss of Khorne's children and rushed forward, all my shooting and guessed ranges, however precise, bouncing off chaos armour...I was terrified...my entire centre consisting of 12 gobbos and highly imprecise warmachines. My squiigies charged the marauders, who fled. My wyvern hung back, in terror of a potentially wild hellcannon. The chaos horde reached within 8 inches of my front line...and then, with questionable judgment, the WoC general declared he was taking a pot shot at the wyvern, 8 inches away from a 20+ unit of warriors.

The hellcannon shot moved back towards the warriors, as my face opened into a wide, and not particularly empathetic smile...

ONly one warrior died, but the rest failed two, yes two panic checks, and fled from the source of the fear...so much for the weak will of Chaos, we worship gork any day, no softies like Khorne. They fled from the source of the fear...into my lines, into my wyvern, who enjoyed crunching through all that tinned meat in chaos armour.

In my following turn, things went from bad to worse for the WoC general. I charged his nurgle wizard on chariot with my wyvern...it just chose to flee. With my usual precision guessing (been doing this a while now...and we all know the table is 48 inches and neither my war machines, nor the hellcannon had moved since set up), I got lucky with the artillery dice and both the lobba and the doomdiva rolled direct hits on the hellcannon...which just died...go gobbos go go go. Then, amazingly, one spearchukka hit the chosen in the flank and went through the whole unit!!!!!

Alas, the squiggies and savage orc boarboyz got wiped by the second unit of 20+ chaos warriors. IN his turn, the marauder horse ran off the table

I noticed the look of disgust and dismay on my opponent's face, and asked him if he thought his chariot and unit of warriors was really likely to take out my fairly intact horde..he agreed and left the field at the start of his turn five...to the might of the waaaaaaaaaaagh!!!!
