    last thursday i had a game against a fellow player in my gaming club we were both bored and had nothing to do so we had a 1k game.

    my army was as follows

    1 runesmith
    12 crossbows
    12 crossbows
    12 crossbows
    20 ironbreakers
    4 bolt throwers

    his army was

    1 liche priest
    1 banner
    10 bowmen
    20 tomb guard
    5 horsemen
    2 scorpians
    2 swarms

    setup
    i had a hill on my side (hmmmm i wonder what went on that???) bolt throwers on the hill with the crossbowmen surrounding and ironbreakers on the right flank

    tomb kings
    the tomb guard with liche priest and banner with bowmen on right flank.
    BUT nothing else i was really confused!!


    TURN1 - tomb kings

    both units marched forward magic phase and the tomb guard ran forward another 4 inches and the bowmen failed to shoot with there magic!

    TURN 1 - DWARFS

    the ironbreakers marched forward 6 inches and that was it for movement ... then shooting the crossbowmen killed the unit of ten archers and then the bolts killed 5 guard!!

    Turn 2 - TB

    the plan was unveiled and 2 scorpians pooped up out of no where to attack the crossbowmen units&#33;&#33; (DAMN&#33;&#33 <:> i was winning&#33;
    then the liche ran forward and then ran forward again (i just couldnt dispell)
    COMBAT the scorpians munched through the crossbow unit and ran strainght into the bolt throwers

    Turn 2 - dwarfs

    the ironbreakers charged the guards but before this could happen he unveiled his majic banner and 5 horsesmen popped up behind the ironbreaker unit and charged them from behind&#33;&#33; <:> this was really annoying
    the crossbow units left turned to face the scorpians and the bolt throwers left missed the already truimphant scorpians

    Combat:- i managed to kill altogether 2 guards and lost 2 ironbreakers i was outnunbered by a fear causing enemy and ran for the hills.
    the scorpians killed another crew and hit the next

    turn 3 - TK

    the swarms appeared behind the crossbow units and charged <:> i was so annoyed at my self for turning the units round exposing there rears&#33;
    the bolt throwers shot at the exposed flank of the guards and killed 5 men.

    Combat:
    the scorpains killed the last crew and over ran into the crossbow unit

    at this point i gave up having just 1 half eaten crossbow unit left&#33;&#33;

    the boy i played (CONBOY)
    is a veteran dwarf player himself and said that my army was very good but his army was based around killing shooting armies so no wonder i lost&#33;

    he said i fought well but i could of planned my set up a little bit better&#33;

    it was a great fight i hope you enjoy reading this as much as i enjoyed playing it

    You got pretty owned there i must say, but it&#39;s a battle report.

    this is what they call: cheating&#33;

    the banner of the undying legion says: in any of the TK player&#39;s turn, and second, it also says: during the remaining moves phase, so there&#39;s no way this could have happened

    no, the horsemen are a normal core unit, you just don&#39;t set them up on the battlefield in the beginning of the game, just like scorpions or swarms. but they are a core unit for the armycomposition.

    besides, the swarms are a core unit, and the bowmen are core too, so he already has 3 core units. (including the horsemen ofcourse)
