Turn 1 HE:
HE got the first turn. They march forward, the spearman act as a screen for my white lions. The bolt thrower shoots 1 gunner. And the spells of the wizard gets dispelled.

Turn 1 Dwarfs:
The Dwarfs also march foward, The gunners shoot 2x spearman, and a cannonball rolls through a line of spearman slaying 3. The spearman do not panic.
After turn 1 it looks like this:

Turn 2 HE:
The horseman + eagle charge the ironbreakers, Spearman also charge but failed because there was no more room at the IB front. The managed to slay very few IB's and it is a draw. The wizard manages to cast a firewall at the cannoncrew, frightning the crew and fled of the field.

Turn2 Dwarfs.
The miners emerge out of the tunnels near the watchtower. The gunners support the IB's by charging in. The iron breakers slay a few bodyguards and the Noble Flees away!
After turn2 it looks like this:

Turn 3 HE:
Things are looking grim, we are surrounded by dwarfs! The white lions charge into the Dwarf unit with the Thane, my champion challenges the Thane. The Thane blockes the attacks of the WL champion and slays him with 3 wounds (2 excessive) The champion is completely butchered. The white lions killed 3 dwarfs, so it was a draw. The wizard left the spearman group and cast a fire ball and a fire wall on the approaching miners. The oil lamps on the helms of the miners exploded and the entire unit was in flame, they run of the table in terror. :evilgrin:
The eagle was also slain this turn. The noble rallies and re-alignes for a second charge.

Turn 3 Dwarfs.
The IB's charge the wizard, but the wizard flees out of range. The white lions slay many dwarfs forcing them to flee off the field including the Thane. Gunners shoot at the spearman killing just 1.

Turn 4 HE:
The Noble charges in again killing 2 IB's. The bolt thrower shoots a Bolt right through the dwarf slayer, leaving a big hole in his belly (dead).

Turn 4 Dwarfs:
He charges his gunners in the side of the Noble. But fails to kill anything. The IB's break from battle and flee. My bro saw no chances of victory anymore and surrendered.

Victory for the High Elves!

It was a exciting battle, I though I was going to lose this one when the dwarfs surrounded me. The wizard proved his worth by slaying the miners, and so removing that backstabbing unit.


Hope you enjoy reading this report.

Best regards,
Wolfroar

Thanks for the report.

Only beef I have is how you had a 'bodyguard' of 4 silver helms.

I just called them bodyguard, the are actually just silver helms with a noble in them.

Nice game, things could have turned nasty if your mage hadn't popped the miners!

In the end picture I was wondering why your brother surrendered when he had such a great cannon shot, through noble, silver helms and spearmen until I realised all the crew were dead =D

Glad the game was fun

Indeed that would have been a great shot, but the mage also made the cannon crew flee of the table. He was very unlucky with throwing leadership tests. A stubborn cannon crew still flees on a roll of 11. :)

Next sunday we will have a chaotic battle with 3 players. We will field HE, Dwarfs and Dark elves. How we are going to organize it , I'm not sure yet. Im sure it is going to be a funny mess. ;)

Three way battles are always tough to make fair.

If the DE player has a bigger army I'd find a way to make it 2 vs 1.
