WHFB: Taking out Organ Guns


A short notice game of Warhammer with Byakhee Anthony last w/e. Not helped by a double booking having to drop off Xmas presents with my Aunt & Uncle who were up visiting my parents.

So against Dwarves, I knew Organ Guns would feature, and so had popped over to druchhi.net for some ideas…

My line up, after inspection by General BlackJack, included a lot of small fast cavalry units to deal with the Organ Guns.

The Vanguard move: lots of fast cavalry = a large move forward !

Note the traitor General receiving bribes from Anthony ! 😀

The Dwarven line – he refused one flank. However, he had 3 pesky Drago-Copters as we call them, nasty little beardy things.

Shades popped up as well to again try and shoot down Drago-Copters and or Organ Guns.

But the Dwarves also came with 3 large blocks of troops, as well as an X-Bow unit.

Dwarves won first move and the Drago-Copter on the refused flank, flamed some Dark Riders who held their ground.

And then they charged the Drago-Copter !

However, the X-bows did for all but one of a unit of Warlocks that were shielding the lareger of my two CoK units, allowing the Organ Gun to hit (18 times) and destroy 8 out of the 11 CoK in the first turn. My army as a whole moved forward as fast as they could.

Having lost one unit of 5 Warlocks, it was good to see the 9damaged) unit of 10 Warlocks got into combat with the Organ Gun crew.

And the Shades charged the Drago-Copter that had failed to significantly damage them with its flame cannon.

So far so good ?
