    Batttle Report 4000pts Orc’s and Dark Elves vs 2000 pts High Elves Last Stand

    The Elven Prince Eteran surveyed the landscape. As he looked back he hoped his decision to take the short cut would not be a bad one. His army having just been beaten a few days ago was still be harassed by the shades of the pursuing Dark Elf forces. It was decision to enter the Ork realm, hoping the Dark Elves pursuing would not follow. His scouts reported the Dark Elves had not been seen for at least a day. He knew his men needed rest and as luck would have it they chanced upon a small tower of Orkish nature.


    The Dark Elf High Sorcereress Magdalina, waited patiently for her scouts to return. She had casted a spell that made her army invisible as long as they stayed put and she eagerly watched the High Elves approach the Tower in the middle of the field. At the far end she could see a rocky hill. She told her Dark Riders to watch that hill for any Orc movements. She had been in this territory before and knew the Orcs frequently visited this tower. Early in the day she had sent the scouts with a message for the Orc Leader Grognog. She doubted, she would get a response and most likely the scouts would be killed. But she also knew that the Orc’s would get the message and gather their forces together and thereby encircling the High Elf force on the run. Nearly a day has passed and she had not heard a word from her scouts. Then she was summoned, by her Dark Riders. They told here the Orc’s had begun to setup war machines in the rocks. She smiled because she knew her message had been received.

    Going from memory so I don’t have all the lists. Just typed this in a few hours. Please be gentle.


    Battlefield:

    A large Rocky hill at one end, with a lookout tower in the dead middle, and a small copse of wood on the far left at the other end of the battlefield.

    Eteran sensed something was wrong and now he had seen it. His elven eyes spotted the Orc’s on the Hill setting up war machines. He ordered his Bolt Thrower crew to setup in the tower. And they everyone else to line up and face the orcs. All of his men gathered their weapons and in moments were in perfect formation. As the Bolt Thrower crew finished setup on the top of the tower. One of them yelled. Dark Elf Forces behind. Eteran now knew he was surrounded, He told his men, “We are surrounded, and will probably not see the light of another day, but let us fight on for the Phoenix King?. After a loud cheer, the Elves moved out.

    Deployment:

    High Elves Facing the Orc’s:

    Starting from bottom to top Eteran and the Phoenix Warriors, next to them the High Elf mage Cescero and spearelves, Next to then a Small unit of Silverhelms. And finally, Leseran and the Dragon Princes. Directly behind them a unit of silver helms on one side of the tower on top of the Tower the Repeater Bolt Thrower, and the Swordmasters and Battle Standard Bearer Feren on the other. Finally, a unit of archers.

    Dark Elves in the rear of the High Elves:

    Two units of Cold Ones in the middle one lead by the Dark Elf Commander Draco, Shades behind the small copse of trees. While Magdalina and her Dark Riders lined up on the flank behind the trees also. The Other unit of Dark Rider on the other flank. One unit of Warriors with crossbows and the dark elf mage Altreas.

    Orc’s and Goblins facing the Front of the High Elves:

    2 Goblin Chariots, A snotling Pump Wagon, one large unit of night goblins, then a unit of goblins with hand weapons. 2 small units of goblin wolf riders and another unit of goblins with handweapons. Behind them the Savage Orc boyz units and a Black Orc units with both the General Gognog and the Battlestandard bearer Grithsnot. Next to them the Orc Shaman Nugrut and a unit of Orc’s with Handweapons. Lastly, on top of the rocky peak 4 warmachines setup 2 bolt throwers, a Doom Diver and a Rock Lobber.

    High Elf Turn 1:

    At the beginning of the battle Cescero declared he was the leader. Most of the high elf troops knew otherwise, but decided to let it go.

    Prince Eteran unsheathed his Blade of Leaping Gold and ordered all of his units forward towards the Orc’s and to spread out make shots from the war machines less likely to hit. All of his units moved forward, The Dragon Princes angled towards the chariots, trusting their Sacred Incense would protect them from enemy arrows, and stayed out of the range of the Night goblins and the fanatics they may contain. All of his other units moved forward slightly. He then nodded at Feren his trusted Battle Standard Bearer. Feren understood and turned his Swordmasters to face the opposite way and head for the Dark Elves. Feren yelled orders to the archers and far unit of Silver Helms and they both turned for the Dark Elves as well.

    Cescero attempted to cast both Flames of the Phoenix and curse of Arrow Attraction, but the Dark Elf and Orc’s had completely nullified the High Elf magic.

    The Bolt Thrower on top of the tower spun around and fired a single bolt towards the closest unit of cold ones skewering 2 of them. Lastly, the archers fired on the Dark Riders 2 of their arrows dismounted riders. Causing them to panic and flee, but remain on the battlefield.

    Orc and Dark Elf Turn 1:

    Grognog Ordered his Night Goblins forward. While the two units of wolf riders moved to the left flank of Eteran and the Phoenix Warriors. On the other flank the two chariots moved forward slightly and angled toward the Dragon Princes, careful to remain out of range. Finally, the pump wagon moved along side of the Night Goblins blocking the chariots from being charged.

    Magdalina, moved her Dark Riders around the small copse of trees. While both units of Cold One fought off their Ferocity (Stupidity). And moved towards the elvens units that turned to face them. The shades took cover in the trees.

    Magdalina, summoned the Dark force and casted Chill Wind on the the Repeater Bolt Thrower in the tower with Ultimate Force. One crew member fell dead to the ground frozen to death. While the other survived, but was to cold to rearm the machine. Magdalina then casted Doom Bolt on the Swordmasters and killed 2 of them. Altreas attempted to cast Doom Bolt on the Swordmasters as well, but was out of range. Nugrut the Orc Shaman attempted to cast a magic missle at the Silver Helms in front of him, but it was stopped by Cescero.

    The four Orc war machines opened fire, First the Doom Diver, but something went wrong. One of the Goblins forgot to tie down one of the wires it snapped and flipped the machine over into the rocks shattering it and killing all of the crew. The Rock Lobber fired a large rock, but over guessed and the rock landed next to the silver helms unit. Finally, both Bolt Thrower fired at the Dragon Princes, and even though protected by a mist making it difficult to see them. One Bolt Skewered 3 Brave knights leaving only 2 plus Leseron. The Dark Riders fired their bolts into the Swordmasters and 2 more fell dead. The other unit of Crossbow warriors fired at the High Elf archers, but all of their bolts landed short of target.

    Continued ...

    High Elf Turn 2:

    The Silver Helms saw the Night Goblin closing and knew fanatics were not far behind, but they saw the Pump Wagon next to the Night Goblin and realized if they could destroy that they could overrun into the chariots behind the odds were slim, but they had to chance it. The charged the Pump Wagon, a lone Fanatics spun from the Night Goblins, but just missed the Silver Helms. As they charged past into the Pump Wagon.

    Leseron knew his unit was severely weakened by the Bolt Thrower, he also knew the Witch from the dark elves had shut down his Bolt Thrower. He wheeled his remaining unit of Dragon Princes and went to the flank of the Witch and Dark Riders, making sure to impeded their movement, but not be so close they could slip by. Eteran and his Phoenix Guard were surrounded by Wolf Riders and had a unit of goblins in front of him. He moved his unit towards the goblins daring them to charge. Cescero moved his spearelves to the right leaving room for the Silver Helm unit behind them to now have a path way to charge. The Silver Helm unit move to protect Cescero’s flank. On the other side of the battlefield the Swordmasters Marched towards the Dark Warriors with Repeater Crossbows and the other Dark mage Altreas while angling themselves towards the Cold One unit in front of them. The other unit of Silver Helms moved closer to both of the Cold One units trying to stay out of charge range. While the Archers moved closer also.

    Cercero, was once again unable to cast any spell, it looked like he would never get a spell off due to the combined Dark Elf and Orc Magic users.

    The lone Repeater Bolt Thrower Crewman was just starting to get feeling back in his arms and would be able to fire next turn. The Archers opened fire on the Cold One unit in front of them and one of their arrows hit its mark, right between the face slit in one of the Armoured Knights bringing him down.

    In combat, the Silver Helms hacked at the Snotling Pump wagon. Severely wounding it, but it was still functioning (1 wound left) and held its ground.


    Orc and Dark Elf Turn 2:

    With the Silver Helms unable to destroy the Pump wagon they were now sitting ducks and were charged by the Goblin unit with hand weapons, and one of the Goblin Chariots, which impacted on their flank, as well as the Night Goblin unit nearby. At that time the crazy Goblin Fanatic spun through the combat. Hitting both Silver Helms and the Goblin Chariot destroying both then continuing on through the other side of the battle. The other unit of Goblins moved close to the Spearelves and Cescero. Both units of wolf riders rode behind the Silver Helms on Cescero’s Flank. While the other Orc Units moved up behind the Night Goblins the Savage Orc’s thirsting for combat. The fleeing unit of Dark Riders rallied just before leaving the battlefield and both units of Cold Ones made their Ferocity Tests. The Dark Elf mage saw Leseron and the Dragon Princes close on her unit of Dark Riders. She knew they could not get away so she lined them up in front of the Tree and in the charge arc of the Dragon Princes. The Shades vacated the tree and moved away know if the Dragon Princes do charge they might run through tree or at least into them and didn’t want to be in their way. Draco saw the archers approaching up the center of the field with the Swordmasters on their left flank. He knew a trap when he saw it and looked at the other units of Cold Ones on his right. He spurred his cold ones to charge the Silver Helms on the archers right flank. The Silver Helm champion hesitated at first, but then decided to flee both of their charges. Just narrowly escaping the glowing banner that was with Draco’s Cold One Unit. This left the other Cold one unit in front of the archers and with the Feren and the Swordmasters on their flank. The Dark Riders rode around both units of Cold Ones and prepared to fire their repeater crossbows at the elven archers.

    The Orc Shaman Nugrut retreated behind the Savage Orcs and joined the Rock Lobber Crew, then casted his magic missle again and 3 spearelves were killed by the Orc Magic. Altreas the dark elf mage pulled an object from his pouch and began to chant. Across the battlefield Cescero, felt an evil power and soon the memory of Curse of Arrow attraction was removed from his mind. Altreas then casted Doom Bolt on Swordmasters and 2 more fell. Magdalina, Casted a spell on the Dragon Princes preparing to charge. A errie cold affected them and their mounts. Freezing their hands and making almost impossible to move. (1 WS).

    The Orc Warmachines fired again, as a rock was lobbed on top of Eteran and the Phoenix warriors. Eteran was too busy leading to notice(Failed Look Out Sir) and was crushed to death under the large rock along with 6 other Phoenix Guard. The Bolt Throwers targeted the Silver Helms unit and 2 Silver Helms were downed. Magdalina, saw the Dragon Prince knights freezing and unable to defend themselves. She pulled a black hissing crossbow and fired 2 bolts felling one of the Knights while her unit fired multiple arrows killing another. Leaving only Leseron remaining, and still freezing and thinking so much for the sacred mist. The Warriors along with the shades opened fire with their Crossbows and killed 2 more Swordmasters. The Dark riders fired on the Archers killing 2.

    High Elves Turn 3:

    The fleeing unit of Silver helms rallied, but had run far enough that now the 2 units of Wolf Riders were in front of them. Seeing Etheran crushed beneath the stone. Cescero and the Spear Elves along with the Remaining Silver Helms charged the goblin unit in front of them. The goblins ran and out distanced the chargers. Setting up possible flank charges from Night Goblins, the Goblin Chariot, and rear charges from two units of Wolf Riders. On the other side of the battlefield Feren and the Swordmasters charged the Cold Ones with no fear due to their Standard. But the Cold Ones ran away fleeing between the other unit of Cold Ones with Draco and the Dark Riders.

    Barely able to ride due to the cold effects, Leseron moved around the woods and the Dark Riders. Hoping the Elven Repeater Bolt Thrower would take advantage of the side shot on the Dark Riders and Magdalina. The Archers wheeled slightly towards the fleeing cold ones and the two other Dark Elf units.

    Finally, the Repeater Bolt Thrower crewman had warmed himself and directed a volley Magdalina and the Dark Riders. 4 Riders were killed, but Magdalina’s leadership kept them from panicking. The archers fired on the Cold Ones Knights with Draco and amazing another cold one Knight was killed.

    Orcs and Dark Elves Turn 3:

    The Fleeing Goblin Unit continues to flee, and runs in front of the Phoenix Guard.
    The Goblin unit on the side of the Night Goblins begins to fight amongst themselves, but suddenly moves forward blocking the Night Goblins, but putting them on the Flank of the Spear Elf units. The Goblins, Goblin Chariot, and both Wolf Rider Units attempt to charge the Spear Elf unit, and Cescero. The Goblins fight back their fear and charge the flank of the Spear Elves as well as the Goblin Chariot, but the Wolf riders are too afraid to charge. The Goblin Fanatic whirls completely away from all units and almost off the battlefield. The snotling Pump Wagon continues forward to the flank of the Spear Elves.
    On the other side of the battlefield the fleeing Cold Ones fail to rally and continue to flee, causing panic in the Dark Rider unit nearby who almost run off the battlefield (5 or less on 3d6 to remain on and he rolled a 5).

    Draco and the Cold One Knights turn to face the Swordmasters and Feren. Magdalina moves around the trees with her few remaining Dark Riders and the Shades move next to Magdalina now on both on the flank of Leseron the Elf commander. Magdalina attempts to cast chill wind on Leseron again, but something goes wrong and all magic on the battlefield is drained. The Grunut

    The Rock lobber is deadly accurate again and lands on top of the Silverhelms on the flank of the Spearelves wipping out the unit. Both Bolt Throwers fire at the Silver Helms that just rallied, but miss. The warriors with Crossbows fire on the now very close remaining Swordmasters and kill 2 more. Magdalina and the Dark Riders target Leseron, but no arrow pierce his armour.

    In Close Combat, The chariot impacts into the side of the Spear Elves killing 5 while the goblins with hand weapons kill one more. Cescero and the Spearelves fight back and kill one goblin. Combat is lost and Cescero and the Spearelves flee and are run down and scattered by the Goblin chariot.

    Continued.....

    High Elves Turn 4:

    Feren has an option to charge the Dark Warriors possible exposing his flank if they hold or to backup and prepare for the Cold One Knights. He orders his Swordmasters to charge the Dark Warriors and Atreas and with crossbow bolts raining down on them they follow his commands. The Phoenix Warriors now no longer being lead by Eteran, decide to charge the fleeing Goblins in front of them. The Goblins continue to flee and the Phoenix Warriors redirected into the Orc unit behind them. The Orc Unit behind them is in awe at how efficiently the Phoenix Warriors move (They Failed their fear test and needed 6’s to hit). Finally the last remaining unit of Silver Helms charges the Wolf Riders in the rear who flee. The Silver Helms redirect, but cannot reach any enemy units resulting in a failed charge. With their flanks exposed.

    Leseren moves backward and to the left flank of the Archer unit. Now able to charge the Warriors with Crossbows if they hold versus the Swordmasters and Feren. While shielding the Archers from both the Shades and Magdalina’s crossbow bolts. The Repeater Bolt Thrower on the tower fired a single Bolt and Skewered 2 Cold One Knights leaving on 4 left in Draco’s unit. The Archers opened fire on the Cold One Knights also, but failed to bring any down.

    In close combat, Feren and his Armour of the Gods along with the Swordmasters Slay 4 Dark Warriors and win the combat, but under the leadership of Altreas the warriors hold their ground. (He rolled a 3 which is just what he needed). 2 Swordmasters move from the back rank to the front and are now engaged with Altreas the mage. On the Other side of the battlefield the Phoenix Guard attacked first and slayed 4 Orcs while taking no casualties in return. But the constant fire on their unit weakened them and being out numbered they barely lost combat. In disgrace they dropped their axes and waited to be slaughtered (I needed to roll an 8 and rolled a 11). The Orc’s chopped them down and overran forward towards the tower and the remaining silver helms.

    Orcs and Dark Elves Turn 4:

    The Fleeing Goblin unit that fled the Phoenix Guard Charge is now causing panic in the other Goblins near by. All of the Warmachine crews including the Orc shaman flee and run off the battlefield, except for one Bolt Thrower. Grognog was just a little too far away to keep them in check. The Goblins that caused the panic also continue to flee and run off the battlefield following the others. Both the Cold One Knights and the Dark Riders Rally and turn around. The Goblin Fanatic rapped its chain around his leg and the ball smashed his own head in. (Rolled a snake eyes) Draco saw the brave Dark Warriors hold out against the Swordmasters and it was just what he needed. His Cold One Knight unit charged into the flank of the Swordmasters and Feren. Grognog charges his black orcs into the Silver Helms along with the Orc unit that just overran the Phoenix Warriors.

    While Magdalina moves around the tree and puts the archers in her units charge range and is followed by the shades. Grognog gives the signal and all of the remaining orc units move forward towards the tower in the center of the battlefield. While the Chariot and the Wolf Riders ride passed the tower and put the High Elf Archers in their sights.

    Magdalina attempts to cast Dominion on Leseron, but fails and end the magic in the area is again evaporated.

    Magdalina does not let that miscast stop her and she raised her cursed crossbow and fires at the archers in front of her and 2 archers are killed. The remaining Dark rider champion also fires and kills 1 more. Leaving only 3 left.

    In close combat, The Cold One Knights rush in front and Draco is unable to get into combat. (He was on the wrong side of the unit and not touching the Swordmasters). The Cold One Knight Champion attacked Feren, but feren easily turn aside his blows, The Other Cold One Knight killed a Swordmaster, In return Feren sidestepped the champion and attacked the unit His sword of might and armour of gods helped his slay 2 Cold One Knights. The rest of his Swordmasters attacked the Dark Warriors and killed 2 more and finally 2 attacked Altreas and cleaved him in two. The Swordmasters kept it close, but due to ranks an outnumbering, even with the Standard of Balance they felt the tide of battle turning against them. Just as they were about to run Feren, Yelled “For the Phoenix King!!!?.(Reroll breaktest due to BS The Swordmasters held their ground firmly. In a brutal display, Grognog Orcs and the other Orc unit slay the remaining Silver Helms using their great weapons to full effect and overrun almost to the tower where the repeater bolt thrower and a single crew remained.

    High Elves Turn 5:

    With only a few High Elves remaining (Himself, the Swordmasters and Feren, the 3 archers and the 1 bolt thrower crew) and knowing death was almost certain. Leserson clutched his wounded arm were the dark arrow was still protruding and was determined to take some the enemy with him. He fought back his fear and spurred his horse to charge the Cold Ones and Draco trying to help Feren and the Swordmasters.

    The 3 remaining archers wheeled to face both the Cold One Knights and Dark Riders. Leaving Magdalina, the remaining Dark Rider and the shades in their rear. Preparing to mentally to meet their end.

    The Repeater Bolt Thrower crew member knew his time was almost over. But he saw a target on the far side of the field. It was the Dark Witch Magdalina, now that her unit was small she was a target. He fired a volley and hit 5 times, but wounding only once. The archers fired 3 arrows at the Dark Riders in front of them and brought 2 down.

    In Close Combat, Leseron Blade of Sea Gold cut right through the Armour worn by Draco and sliced him in two. His Horse trampling the Knights dead body. Feren attacked the Cold One Knights remaining and killed 2 more. While the rest of his Swordmaster dispatched the last Dark Warrior. The remaining Cold One Knight was able to wound on Feren, but knew all was lost and fled the battle. Only to be chased and chopped down by Leseron and the Blade of Sea Gold.

    Orc’s and Dark Elves Turn 5:

    The Dark Riders charge the archers and in a amazing display of shooting 3 Dark Riders were killed causing the Dark Riders to panic and flee. The Cold One Knights charged Leseron who failed his fear test and ran for his life. The Cold Ones redirected into the Swordmasters and Feren.

    Grognog Ordered his battle Standard Bearer to take down the Bolt Thrower in the tower. Morgo the Orc Battle Standard Bearer moved his unit of orcs toward the tower. While the rest of the Orc Units moved around the tower. The chariot now ready to charge the archers while the Wolf Rider moved to charge the archers also. Magdalina and the Dark Rider Champion with her attempt to hide from the Bolt Thrower on the Tower, but moved a bit two close to the archers and could not march behind hind the woods. The shades moved into cover of the woods once again.

    Magdalina held her magic (She had no targets to cast on).

    The Remaining Orc Bolt Thrower opened fire on the High Elf Bolt Thrower, but just hit the castle protecting it.

    In close combat, The Cold One Knights lances impaled 3 more Swordmasters and One of the Cold Ones finished off Feren, but ripping his stomach with it’s teeth. The Swordmasters could not cause any wounds in return and ran for their live. Only to be chased down and slaughtered by the Cold One Knights.

    High Elf Turn 6:

    Leseron rallied and prepare to charge the Witch Magdalina and her Dark Rider champion.


    The High Elf Bolt Thrower saw that Magdalina could not move far enough to hide behind the woods and fired a volley at her again. One more bolt found it’s mark leaving her badly wounded. The Archers wheel again and launched 3 arrows at the Wolf Riders preparing to charge. 2 Wolf Riders were killed and the rest fled the battlefield.

    Orc’s Dark Elf Turn 6:
    The Dark Riders Rallied and turned around. Morgo charged from his unit into the tower doorway to engage the remaining bolt thrower crew. The Cold Ones charged into Leseron
    Magdalina not wanting to be shot by the bolt thrower again moved behind the tree for protection. While the Shades charged the archers in the rear.

    Grognog moved all of his other units around the tower and now had the archers in sight.

    Magdalina then attempted to cast on the archers, but miscast once again. She was racked with pain and fell dead off of her horse. (she rolled a 10 on the miscast table).

    The shades attacked the 3 remaining archers and dispatched them easily. Finally, Morgo attacked the Bolt Thrower crew member who fought valiantly, but was killed by Morgo.

    With No elves left the game was over:

    Final Total=1826 pts.

    A Draw between the High Elves and their enemies.
