19 men at arms, full command

10 hand gunners, hochland long rifle

His army(not sure of wargear or some characters)
enigne of the gods

Full squad of warriors
Deployment: standdrad 48' by 48'. We got the honor of setting up fisrt.
There was a forest on the left hand side of our board. A hill in the middle. And a forset to our far right. His side was the same minus the hill. We positioned our cannon right next to the left hand forest. And one nest to the forest on the right. I placed my archers on the hill. In betwwen the hill and the left cannon i place my men at arms. in between the men and the hill i placed my KOTR w/ paladin and battle standard. in between the hill and the right cannoon we placed the hand gunners. in between the hand gunners and the hill we placed the hell blaster. See attachments.
Turn 1 for B&E(bretonnia and empire)
we gave up the fisrt turn to pray
LIzards; both the skink squads marched forward. THe old bloods for some reason tried going thruogh the trees they were behind. The stegadon moved forward flanked by the warriors.unfortunatly for them we dispelled all their magic. they had nothing to shoot so it went to us.
B&E: against my yrge we didn't declare any charges. i moved my knights for word slight ly and we wen into shooting. The ten hand gunners fired with deadly accuarcy considering their range. They inficted four wounds to the crew of the stegadon and the long rifle hit the stegadon. all but one creww made their armour saves. The great cannon shot at the stegadon and did four wounds. then the second great cannon over shot it's target. My archers pegged off two skinks.
Lizards: the old bloods were having trouble getting thru the trees. So the skinks moved forward.The stegadon stood where it was. so did the warriors for they we still hidden from veiw. The skinks shot at the men at arms killing for. The other skinks tried shooting at the knights but only two hit. of that none wounded. The stegadon did his magic and only got one spell thru. I belive it was forked lilghtning. but all my knights made their saves.
B&E: My knights declared a charge on the skinks. Then we moved into shooting. All the guns on the right side fired and killed all but one of the crew. and taking the stegadon down to one wound. Once again the second cannon over shot. my archers managed to peg a skink. The knight in combat killed every skink before i finished all my attacks.
Lizardmen: movement was the old bloods emerging from the forest. And the stegadon retresting as far back as possible. The skinks shot at the men at arms hitting three times and wounding twice. they made their armor saves though. There wasn't any magic as the only person who could cast magic other then the stegadon was the skink preist. but he was with the skinks i butchered the turn before. There was no combat.
B&E: The knights declared a charge on the stegadon and the men at arms charged the helpless skinks. During the shooting phase we concen treated all fire on the warriors. They never stood a chance as all but two were killed. In combat the knights easily brought down the mammoth of stegadon. But not before my men at arms moped up the lst of the skinks all the while only losing one man. WHen all was said and done the warriors had to take two panic tests which they failed. When then watched as the two cowardly ran off the board. The old bloods passed their test.
Lizardmen: The old bloods did the only thing that they could. A suicide charge strait up the middle of the gun line. This of course failed. but to their credit they held their ground.
B&E: with only the old bloods left and within range of everyting they felt the full wrath of black powder.
B&E Losses: 5 men at arms
enigne of the gods
Full squad of warriors
We had a massacre of a victory. Forgive me if i had any typing mistakes. PLaese feel free to leave feed back about our lists.
Intrestesting report, though I really think your oponnent didn't play very well. The 'old bloods' I assume are temple guard, and were completely wasted due to deployment, the Engine was always going to be an easy target unless he positioned better to protect it, and giving everyone around a 5+ward to missiles to help protect them should have helped.
Not badly played by you, though I don't think this was a really big test of how this army would fight together. As for your lists, its interesting, like your peasants. Think the two lists complement each other reasonably well, Empire shooting, Bret Combat. Maybe not the men at arms and bowmen but another unit of knights as well, considering the partnership?
they were temple guard thank you the named slipped my mind. after lthe batlle i asked him about the placement of the temple guard and he said that he was afriad of the cannon. this didn't make much sense to me. i took the archers becuse the tourny we're in has alot of nurgle players. i wanted to use the flaming arrows to deny them of regeneration. iwas thinking about dropping the men at arms though
thanks for the advice
