My second game, this time vs Vidar (Severus).
Dice was rolled and fun was had.

Vanguard
Vidar had none, so I was free to move my Treekin and Treeman forward.

Above: after Vanguards

Vidar turn 1.
Everything marched forward.
10 Spearmen took 4 wounds from shooting. Treekin on the right flank took 1 wound from shooting.

Image

Above: after Vidar turn 1.

Frederick turn 1.
The Archer Hordes walked through the small screen units of Spearmen.
On the leftmost flank, Hero, 10 spearmen and Dragon Breath Cannon turned to face the oncoming threat.
On the right flank, Treekin marched towards the Hero on Dragon, stopping 2" short.

In the shooting phase, the Treeman cast the Surge spell, making the Treekin move forward enough inches to contact and charge the dragonrider!
Bowman horde made enough wounds on a small enemy bowman unit to make them Waver (so they could not shoot back next turn).

In combat the Treekin failed to cause any damage to the Dragonlord.


Image
Image
Above: after Frederick turn 1.

Vidar turn 2
On the left flank, the light cav ran full speed down into the corner and pivoted to threaten the bolt thrower, and the other units moved closer to my lines. In the forest, the two Militia screen units charged the Treekin.
On the right flank, the Hero on Peg charged my Bolt Thrower, and heavy cav + Dragonrider double charged my Treeman. Berserkers moved forward to support.

Shooting inflicted hits on my Bowman Horde.

In combat the Militia struggled against the Treekin (already 5+ to hit, and -1 for charging into the forest) but they managed to inflict one wound.
On the right, knights and dragonrider inflicted 8 wounds on the Treeman but failed to Break him. PegasusHero made 3 wounds on the Bolt Thrower but failed to Break it (it's disrupted though, so cannot shoot next turn).

Image
Image
Above: after Vidar turn 2

Frederick turn 2
On the left, my Dragon Hero charged the light cavalry in the corner.
Spearmen moved towards the approaching enemy knights (to present their front, for the Phalanx rule).
Leftmost Archer Horde moved out into the center to get some range for shooting,
On the right, Treekin reformed and moved towards the flank of the Berserkers (and the Treeman later cast Surge on them, giving them a 5" move which made them contact & charge the Berserkers!). The rightmost Bowmen horde charged the Heavy Cav in the front, broke them (lucky dice!) and reformed towards the berserkers.

Treekin made 4 wounds on the Berserkers (not enough) and they were facing a countercharge in the next round.

Image
Image
Above: after Frederick turn 2

Vidar turn 3
Left side: Heavy Cav charged into the front of 10 Spearmen (and destroyed them).
Greatswords and Foot Guard moved forward.
Militia tried again to fight the TreeKin in the forest.
Right side: Berserkers countercharged the Treekin (and destroyed them).
Hero on Dragon jumped over my Treeman to charge the flank of 10 spearmen (and destroyed them).
Hero on Pegasus abandoned the Bolt Thrower and turned around to help.

Both my Bowmen hordes took damage to shooting (and lightning bolt from BSB).

Image
Image
Above: after Vidar turn 3

Frederick turn 3
In the down left corner Hero on Pegasus finished the Fast Cav and turned around.
To face the Heavy Cav who had come dangerously close, 10 spearmen moved to show their front, and Mage repositioned to be able to cast lightning bolt.
On the right flank, 10 spearmen moved to block the flank of the bowman horde, so the nearby dragon rider cannot charge into it.

In shooting, on the left flank the Heavy Cav were destroyed by the combined efforts of the Bolt Thower, Dragonbreath Cannon and lightning bolt from the Mage.
On the right flank, the first Bowman horde destroyed a small unit of 10 bowmen, and the other bowman horde destroyed the Berserkers.

Image
Image
Above: after Frederick turn 3

Vidar turn 4
On the left flank, the Swordsmen Horde charged the Bolt Thrower (it never stood any change vs 75 attacks...).
Foot Guard charged through the forest to hit the 10 Spearmen in the flank.
Militia keeps trying against the Treekin (still hitting on sixes).
On the right, Dragonrider rear charges my Bowman Horde!

Shooting takes some wounds on my leftmost Bowman horde. Pegasus Hero uses Breath Attack on Bolt Thrower, making it a total of 7 wounds on the machine and making it Waver.

In combat, the Swordsman Horde reformed to face the rest of my army. The Footguard inflicted 4 wounds on my Spearmen but did not break them.
Treekin hold the (tree)line. *chuckle*
After the rearcharge of the dragonrider, 20 wounds are inflicted on the rightmost Bowman Horde! But Vidar rolls snake eyes to Break them! ooh the luck!

Image
Above: Snake Eyes! Boom!!
Image
Image
Above: after Vidar turn 4

Frederick turn 4
Dragon Hero came flying to threaten the Rear of the swordmen Horde.
Spearmen charged into the Foot Guard.
Wizard runs to hide, and Bowman Horde turned around.
On the right side, Bowman Horde (who are lucky to still be alive) countercharge the Dragonrider and the Spearmen charge into the flank to make it a Double charge.

Shooting does nothing much.

In combat, the spearmen on the left flank inflict damage and Waver the foot guard!
On the right, the doublecharge on the dragonrider cause enough damage to Waver the dragonrider! So it can do next to nothing next turn..

Image
Image
Above: after Frederick turn 4

Vidar turn 5
Left: The Swordman Horde flank charged the spearmen.
Foot Guard are wavered so cannot do much.
Milita tries again (they don't give up do they) to fight the TreeKin who are still more than happy to stand still and block the advance of the Polearms Horde.
On the right, the Peg Hero turns around -

and in the shooting phase it uses breath weapon on the Treeman. Fails to wound.
10 Crossbowmen make a wound on the heavily damaged Bowman Horde (and destroys them). Shooting causes wounds on leftmost Bowman Horde.

In combat the Swordsman Horde obliterated the spearmen (50 attacks because of a flank charge will do that) and reformed to face the dragonbreath cannon.
Miltia did 2 wounds on the Treekin, and actually almost broke them.

Image
Image
Above: after Vidar turn 5

Frederick turn 5
Left:
Dragon hero flank charged the Foot Guard in the forest.
Treeman & Spearmen combo charged the Dragonrider in both flanks.

In shooting, the Bowman Horde and Dragonbreath Cannon took out the Swordman Horde.
Mage healed some wounds back on the Bowman Horde.
Bolt Thrower on the right side was finally not wavered anymore and decided to promply shoot down the pesky Pegasus Hero. Boom!

In combat; left side, my charging Dragonrider broke the Foot Guard!
Right: the Treeman & Spearman ended the dragonrider.

Image
Image
Above: after Frederick turn 5

Vidar turn 6
Militia charged the Treekin AGAIN.
In combat they killed them (finally!) and overran.

Frederick turn 6
In the chance of a turn 7 becoming reality, I opted for caution, and retreated with my dragonlord and mage, hiding them behind the Bowman Horde.
On the right side, Spearmen & Treeman march full speed towards the 10 Crossbowmen.

Image
Image
Above: after turn 6

The roll for turn 7 was made, and NO turn 7. So match over.
Result: 1095 points to me, 500 points to Vidar.
Victory! :mrgreen:

(Wrote the report in English so everyone can read it. Hope it is enjoyed)

Men bytter til Norsk nå. Kommentarer tas imot med takk.
Takk for kamp Vidar!

Store vendepunkt i kampen var da du rullet Snake Eyes på å breake bowman horde. Og jeg rullet jevnt over ganske høyt på nerve checks, så plutselig forsvant units selv om jeg ikke hadde gjort kjempemange wounds. Så litt flaks hadde jeg nok. 8)

Flott rapport Fred. Hadde det veldig gøy og det var spenning til siste slutt.

Følte jeg ble hardt straffet, men brukte pole-arms helt feil, og pegasus burde nok tatt ut bolt thrower før han gikk videre.

Strålende Battle Report!

Jeg måtte le når jeg så at du bruker treekin som vi lagde hos meg back in the day. De er så sykt kule og de ble til ved ren tilfeldighet. Beste treekinfirgurer i universet i min mening.

En dag skal jeg lage en Dragon Breath-figur til deg med en drage duct taped til en kanon. For alver kan vel ikke lage Flame Cannons som virker? hihihi
