WHFB: Lots of quick games tournament style – Part 3

Dark Elves vs Bretonnians

Ok, having seen my CoK trash the Ogres I started out positively against the three columns of Bretonnian k-nigits, especially as I managed to whittle one unit down from 9 to 6 during magic and shooting phase.

Then a rock from the trbuchet landed on the Silver Talons, and wiped out 13 of 20…errmm….and ten the CoK got charged in the flank by a k-nigit on Pegasus, and then a column of k-nigits head on.

You may note the gap to the right of the CoK, because that’s where the Silver Talons were, before they had been massacred by another column of k-nigits who pursued them off the table taking my main combat hero and Level3 High Sorceress with them.

Gamne over – 5 Harpies, 5 Dark Riders and 10 RXBs and a Level1 Sorceress are not going to stop the remaining k-nigits and pegasi borne heroes…

Short and not very sweet for me.

Empire vs Ogres

Scott and Neil squared off against each other. To be fair to Scott, he was playing with a fairly unknown (to him) army that Rich had been kind enough to build and loan him.

So he charged straight into the (Great) maw of his opponent…

Head top head combat ensued.

The Ogres won out, especially when the swordsmen ran away from the Leadbelchers.

Empire vs Bretonnians

The penultimate game of the day.

Scott again deployed his Empire troops – this time not blocking LOS of his X-bows. 😉

Again the three Bretonnian juggernauts surged forward.

Crashing into the Empire flagellants…

Whilst on the far flank Luthor Hess charged and pulped a Bretonnian hero on Pegasus…I took the photo even before combat was initiated as I knew the likely outcome…

The Bretonnians finally defeated the swordsman who had joined combat and ground the flagellants down.

As Scott noted his lesson:

Don’t join the flagellants with other units in combat ! The flagellants don’t mind dying in droves as they are frenzied and steadfast, the other units will run for it because of the high body count affecting combat resolution.

Jim’s k-nigits also saw of the Empire knights and with the majority of the hard units running for it Scott threw in the towel as I had done.

Final part tomorrow – Ogres vs Empire

    Interesting to see Scott switching this force around by taking Luthor Huss out of the Knights to fight alone. And also very helpful of his to road test some units before I use them myself. Looks like I need to paint some more flagellants, for a start.
