This was an interesting battle,and i'll get straight to it. First off:
2x24 saurus w/ spears/full command
3x3 kroxigors w/ ancients
2 skink preists
Me w/ Orcs&Gobbo's:
Black orc w/ 4+ ward & +2 strength club(i know the items but some1 else might not)
gobbo s haman w/ 2 scrolls
orc BSB w/ 1+ armour save
2x25 orcs w/ full command & sheilds
25 orc big'uns w/ spears sheilds & full command
2x30 night goblins w/ 2 fanatics & musician each
2 boar chariots
3 river trolls
2x5 wolf riders
clear middle,with 2 very large woods on either side,leaving a 4" gap on one side,and a 10" gap on the other. It looked like a sizable force in the middle could use the terrain to avoid flank charges
Both blocks of saurus were set up in the middle,with kroxigors in on both flanks and in middle. Carno/stegadon set up in middle behind the kroxigors. Skinks set up in middle screening kroxigors. Salamander on right flank
2 orc units on left side in middle,left middle was big'uns w/ general
wolf riders set up on extreme left flank and infront of forest on right side
Gobbos both on flanks,left being hindered by woods,right being a big out of it with only a salamander opposing them
1 chariot next to far left orc unit,with woods on other side of it
second chariot next to gobbos on right
All my troops rolled up,trolls making stupidity test,and right unit of wolf riders failing animosity. Pretty uneventful
Everything moved up,again,nothing eventful. The magic phase saw his second signs dispelled
turn2:Nothing fails animosity,trools fail stupidity. middle regiment of orcs tries to charge saurus block,but fails terror test from the carnasaur,sitting there(damn terror!. wolf riders on left flank line up to flank the enemy. Left gobbos still going through woods,right gobbos get in range of salamander,releasing fanatics. They miss the salamander,but one pummels into the right saurus block,killing 21. Orc biguns assult skinks,killing them and pursuing into kroxigors in center.
kroxigors charge unit of orcs on left side,killing 6. One wound back,for a tied combat. Both saurus regiments flank charge into my big'uns. Ouch. I activiate the banner of butchery,elect to use my choppas instead of spears,and hope for the best. The combat looks like this:
LM Bigums LM
Orc unit Trolls
He kills 10 guys,i kill 7 including a kroxigor. I run because of flanking ranks etc,
and since his other two regiments couldnt pursue in the direction the orcs were running,the kroxigors pursue and catch them. Looking bad for me so far...
trolls fail stupidity,my boar chariot on left cant charge into the engaged kroxigor vs orc combat because when it wheels it would of entered the woods. Curses! The other boar chariot rams into the rear of the saurus regiment on the right,and an orc unit assults the flank of the other saurus unit,backed by the leftmost wolf riders in their rear. Orcs vs kroxigors,the orcs break,and get run down i break and catch both saurus units,destroying them. I then fail a terror test and run 11 inches back,beside the kroxigor units. Goblins plug away,the left ones releasing fanatics into the carnasaur,causing a wound to the rider and monster. The trolls get charged by kroxigors,tied combat
kroxigors charge the remaining orc regiment,breaking and running them down. Carnasaur moves towards night goblins on left,and somehow they become the only unit on the board to make their terror check...on LD5. Go figure.
At this point he had to leave,which was a bummer. All in all the center was gone for both of us,2 depleted kroxigor units being far into my deployment zone,and the trolls holding up the last kroxigors. On the sides i had my two boar chariots,full regiments of night goblins,and 2 units of wolf riders. Not sure who would of won,since he still had his monsters but i had 2 full regiments to his none. All in all it was a fun game,and we still hope to resume it the next time he comes over.
21 saurus slain by 1 fanatic :blink: ...wow ...gotta love 'em! Those carnasaurs are nasty pieces of work alright. Although it seems you have enough fast units left to snag his table corners and keep yours contested. Hope to hear about the final result soon!

Er,sorry,meant to say the fanatic killed 2. The amount of luck involved for a fanatic killing 21 saurus in a single unit in a game is mind boggling.
Your report says you activated the banner of butchery when you got charged in the flank, doesn't it only work if the unit carrying it charges?
Helper monkey, bring me beer and donuts
No, the banner's rules state:
"... once during the battle, add +1 Attack to each model fighting for that turn."
No charge necessary.
The iron crowned is getting closer,
Swings his hammer down on him,
Like a thunderstorm he's crushing,
Down the Noldor's proudest king.
Under my foot, so hopeless it seems.
You've troubled my day, now feel the pain.

So who was the winner then?
i was gonna say is it even possible for a fanatic to kill 21 models in one turn (i wanna do a gobbo army at some stage but working on lizzis first so dont know how fanatics work) i wouldnt be able to tell you who won howver you were lucky his carnosaur and stegadon should ahve a ton more damage than it did
WELL SAID, NO MORE SQUATS THEY ARE DEAD GET OVER ITOriginally Posted by artificer
Not really, the fanatic is only st 5 and both monsters are insanely tough.his carnosaur and stegadon should have a ton more damage than it did
