I shall continue with my same unfluffy style of the other two threads, hopefully they are fairly quick reads, and with the drawings you can get an exact picture of how the game went. Next opponent, my friend and his skaven.
Thursday, Battle 4
Beastmen vs. Skaven
My friend said he would help me out and test my new army. He thought I would be weak against a horde and shooting heavy army.
My troops: Super Herd, 2 Bray Shamans, 4 Ogres w/ GW, Chariot, 2 units of 5 warhounds
His troops: 2 Clanrat units each with a Warlock engineer, Slaves, Plague Monks, Jezzails, Ratling Gun
My deployment hasn't really changed much, I used my warhounds as a screen for my chariot.
I get to go first, again! Man, I am good at going first. I move everything forward, and screen my chariot from the jezzails and my ogres from his impending magic of doom. I shoot a spell at his plague monks at wipe out a whole rank, I get bear's anger on one guy, my third spell is stopped.
He moves his Giant rats so the can flank or protect his own flank. He moves his ratling gun so it has Line of sight on my superherd. His magic phase is brutal, he gets rid of both my warhound units and hits my herd for a couple. His jezzails inflict a wound on the chariot.
I declare a charge with my chariot, it is not within range, but his unit of slave wont be within range of it next round either. I move my units forward, I will not be able to outmaneuver him because we are both movement 5, I will have to rely on staff of darkoth for that extra charge move. I position my ogres to protect my flank. it is difficult but5 he would clip them and be forced to have a frontal charge against them. Now comes the tricky part, I have 6 power dice and he has 4 dispel. He knows I have the staff to get an extra charge move. A few days earlier he told me a story about a 2000 point game where a tzeentch lord on a disc killed his ratling guns and wiped out his army with magic missiles. He was very angry and thought it was "cheesy." So of course I threw a magic missile at the ratling gun, instinctively he threw two dice to dispel it and succeeded. After about 2 seconds a spew of expletives came from his mouth. I rolled 3 dice for the charge power against his 2 and succeeded. I had one dice left and tried for bear's anger on my other shaman and failed. I hit his plague monks, and clanrats. I killed off his entire front rank of monks and 3 clanrats. He kills 2 guys. I win combat and all his units run off the board.
Lessons learned: Warp lightning and jezzails are nasty against most things, but because my units are cheap and have no armor anyway, he isn't going to be able to make up his points or kill enough.
Dude your amazing at passing panic. BTW only chariots can charge multiple units. It seems like you are new to the game but I like the reports.
