His Army Aprox.:
Noble General - Gauntlets of Tamakador and Great Weapon
Noble BSB - Sacred Incense
10 White Lions
2 Bolt Throwers
We picked a pond and a stand of trees and scattered them 3d6 from the middle. The scatter sent a pond to one deployment zone and the trees to the other deployment zone. We rolled to pick sides and I grabbed the one with the trees and he chose to have me deploy first. On the wider side of the trees I deployed both of my skink units all the way from the edge to the trees to screen my krox, terries, and saurus. I deployed my priest inside the trees and the sallies on the other side of the trees. His deployement went spears, bolt thrower, swords with BSB, bolt thrower, White Lions with general. His last unit just hung into the pond just a bit.
His first turn he just moved his infantry up an inch or two and then took a couple of repeating shots at my salamanders and I lost a skink and two wounds on a salamander.
I marched full forward with everything on my first turn except for the terries which I moved just in front of my line. Also, the salamanders moved at an angle directly towards the white lions.
His second turn he turned his spears sideways in preparation for my terradons to charge his bolt thrower. He then advanced his White Lions and his swordmasters. One bolt thrower took another repeating shot at my Salamanders killing a Skink while the other struck the terradons and took one out. The terries passed there panic test and it was my turn again.
This turn I only declared a charge with my terradons to his bolt thrower that was furthest from his spear trap. I didn't move any of my other troops. The salamanders took aim at his White Lions and two of them rolled 14 hits while the other salamander ate two skinks. This salvo removed about half of the white lions from the board. All of my skinks concentrated fire on the Swordmasters and were able to kill a couple for their trouble. Then something huge happened; his White Lions with noble failed there leadership roll and away just narrowly missing running through the combat between the terries and bolt thrower crew.
Then close combat resolved with his crew wounding one of my terradons and I wounded both of his crew. I chose to overrun which took me right through his fleeing general and White Lions unit and off of the board.
On his third turn he charged my skinks with his swordmasters. The skinks valiantly stood and fired, and I decided to repeat for the fun of throwing 20 dice, but I didn't roll a single 6 on any of them. He advanced towards my salamanders with his spears and his bolt thrower repeated on my salamanders again taking out one my salamanders and killing another skink.
His swordmasters then defiled my skinks killing all but one and leaving them no chance to attack back. I didn't roll my double ones for insane courage, but I got double 2s. He pursued and my skink ran through my saurus and the swordmaster pursued into block of hissing spitting green beasts.
On my third turn I charged my krox into the flank of the swordmasters. I then only moved my terradons and some skinks to fire upon the war machine and the spears. The Slamanders got 14 shots on the spears and reduced them to 3. I then shot with my skinks and killed one more while my terradons shot one of the crew of the bolt throwers. I haven't really talked about the magic phase much, as there wasn't really much happening in it. I got a few rerolls here and there, but this turn I miscast and had to take a hit on my priest and dispel my rerolls. We then got into combat where his BSB challenged my Scar Vet and was unable to wound him, unfortunately my Scar-Vet only got one wound back. His swordmaster then went to town killing 3 of my saurus and wounding a krox. My only saurus that could still hit back attacked and did no wounds, my krox took out enough to tie up our combat res.
His fourth turn saw his last two spears make a valiant charge on my salamanders that held there ground and the bolt thrower put a wound on the terradons.
The salamanders killed the spears while suffering no wounds. The challenge ended with no wounds this round and the swords took out another 3 sarus and gave the sarus one more wound. This time the lizzards won the combat by one but the swords held their ground.
My fourth turn saw fire, javelins and darts all thrown a the war machine and not a single one felled the remaining crew member. The scar vet finally felled the BSB while the swords took decided to shift two of their attacks to the kroxigors this time and ended up not getting a single wound on the saurus and only wounded one krox. The lizards struck back with a fury killing a few more swords and the lizards won the combat and overran the swords.
The only elf left on the field submitted to the old ones will and the lizards shared a mighty victory!
Nice write up! The pics really help you understand what transpired. I love the lizzies and hate the elfs, so nce victory.
Why do you hate High Elves? Is it the look of the miniatures? The background story? Just a curious question of a would-be High Elf player.
I just dont like elves, but nothing wrong with the minis or the army. It is more of a fluff thing and just never liked them. I encourage others to play them though, so I can get my fill of killing them on the battlefield.
Thanks! Hopefully I can do another one soon. I played another game since then, but it was a draw and I don't remember it as well, so I don't think I can write an accurate report.
Great report, really nice with the pictures.
Grats on the winning!
Thanks, my lizards seem to be able to handle the high elves as long as they don't bring a dragon.
Good report. I'm curious though, your Skinks shooting at the White Lions. Did your opponent forget about their 2+ save against shooting?
