We showed up that the store expecting 6 players and found ourselves with only 3. We all wanted to get a game in, but we had only brought lists of 2000 as we were expecting 6 players. A little talk and and we came up with a scenario to make a 3 army battle fun and somewhat equal.
The Orcs raided deep in Lizard territory and unknown to the Orcs they captured a sort of "Temple of Life." This temple had a fountain beneath it and all those that drank from the water would heal wounds as if they were a troll!! The Slann are desperate to retake the water of life and they strike a bargin to imbue an item with magic for the Vampire Count.
**All Orc units would get 4+ Regeneration rolls like a troll.

The terrain has a Temple in the Center of the table with walls around the temple. There is a Gate off-set to the Lizards and a break in the rear wall towards the Undead. The Lizards and Undead are approaching from the table corners.

The Attackers sensing defeat feel like ending it.
I missed some details in there, but the results were a Orc Victory.
The Slann were all but broken and destroyed. The Orc losses at the time were 20 boyz, 2 lobba's, 1 chariot, one giant and maybe 5 various troops/infantry.
The undead lost 30+ troops, all bats, all wolves and half their knights.
Regeneration played VERY little into the battle and with it removed the results would have been nearly the same. The MVP award goes to a Fanatic as he killed and caused more problems than you would have ever believed!! lol
The Slann 3 dice leadership check rule saved them time and time again!
Overall it was a VERY fun game and good sportsmanship was in the air. I would have liked to have finished off the undead, but time was against us.
