EMPIRE ENCAMPMENT OUTSIDE MIRAGLIANO
OUTSIDE THE GENERAL'S TENT
The two Druchii shades crept up. The tent was clearly visible; it had a gold griffon and sentries outside it. For those with simpler minds, it had the word 'general' writtten in block capitals above the entrance.
Smurf whistled to Doofy, sounding very much like a bird. Doofy roared back, sounding very much like a mountain lion. Both snuck up behind the tent.
"...you blithering baboons bottom, don't you know?"
"Oh, I say, you cad! Call me not such rude names."
"Rather, old chap. Would you like some tea?"
"That reminds me: the men are complaining. They're saying the tea rations are too low."
"Do they have handbag rations too?" whispered Smurf. Doofy giggled, sounding very much like a dork.
"..so anyway my good man, we will be outside the spiffing town of Miragliano, old boy."
"When, old bean?"
"Tommorrow at nine."
That was all the spies needed to know. They sped in the direction of the Dark Elf black arc, not even pausing to murder the startled sentries.
DARK ELF FORCE (Me)
Tuerna, 2nd-grade scorceress with the Blade of Rhuin............180
5 dark riders...............85
Cold one chariot..........95
10 repeater crossbowmen........110
TOTAL: 685 points. (700 point battle)
EMPIRE (Adam-no, not adam1911)
TOTAL: 685 points.
Tuerna cackled ferociously as she hurled Black Horror on a screaming unit of handgunners, completely wiping them out! The other unit of handgunnners was eliminated by my crossbowmen. Yes, I do win. If I lost I would not, of course, send this in! :sigh: Anyway, the Dark Riders and Cold One Chariot teamed up to attack the small mob of militia. They fired into the crowd-and the crowd fired back! Although they lost thirteen warriors, the Militia killed both the riders and the chariot!
The cannon was loaded, aimed right at the hydra, my only real surviving defence. The crew lit the fuse, but two seconds away from druchii despair and one crewman's ciggarrette stub fell on to the powder, killing himself and his colleauge. Moral of the story: smoking kills you and others around you. Darn! I've gone over to the good side! I just posted a valuable moral!:wacko: Anyway, The remaining militia packed up their courage and brought it on a downhill hike to the waiting Hydra. They inflicted a wound on the hydra and killed one of the beastmaster apprentices. Of course, the hydra spewed fire and breakfast on them and the combination sent the militia to ignomous deaths.
The hydra, still chewing a drumstick, charged the spearmen. In the ensuing battle, the spearmen were eliminated but inflicted a wound on the hydra and killed the remainn beastmaster. This was when the swordsmen charged at and murdered the hydra, who toppled over and wiped out the spearmen.
Tuerna screamed in triuph as her Black Horror sent 6 swordsmen souls straight to heaven, where they were rejected. The crossbowmen knocked out another three, but the remaining six charged to within an inch of the repeater crossbowmen...
...who wiped them out and stole any gold they happened to have.
This left only the general.
He charged, just like in the closing scene of the Sunshine Kid. It was a glorious charge, and as the first rays of sunlight peekes over the horizon, you could see the barbed bolts slowly ciming towards him, but always missing.
Let me tell you a little bit about moles. MOLES ARE EVIL. It was a mole who dug the molehill that killed king William the something-or-another of Britain. It was a mole who dug up Hammy's grave. Ask any farmer: MOLES ARE EVIL. And it was a mole that dug the hill that the general tripped and broke his nose on.
The Dark Elves spent several hours searching for the wonded man. finally, Smurf found him. "Show me mercy, as I would you," said the general, Ebenezer. "Fat chance. Nearly as fat as you," said Smurf, and slew him.

*shakeshead* lol. At least I got to read the entire battle in 3 minutes...haha.
Umm, your battle report doesn't make much sense, in the first turn you killed 2 units of handguners, one with a black horror and the other with 1 unit of crossbowmen, I doubt you could have rolls this good. Also since the black horror has only 18" range i have no idea how you were within range. Also your hydra can't breath fir when in assault, and how was he charged in the first turn? and how did your hydra fall over, there are no rules for falling hydras. Also I have no idea what your saying in turn five.
Are you sure you know the rules and how to play, maybe you should look over the rule book again.
RRRG! The hydra didn't fall, I used poetic licsense to make their deaths more interesting. And the battlefield was very small (3ft by 3ft) and he deployed the stupid handgunnerrs 10 inches away from me in the hope he could beat me in close combat. Please do not blame the dice for having such good rolls. Turn 5: The general charged AT my men and was bought down by the crossbowmen. A mod can close this now.
lol are you sure you wern't facing adam1911 cus your list aint that good neither was his but i would think he could've put up a bit of a fight at the very least
"take my love, take my land, take me to where i cannot stand, i don't care i'm still free you can't take the sky from meee" ;- firefly
"i'm gonna grant you your greatest wish i'm gonna show you a world without sin" ;- serentiy
"I am a leaf on the wind, watch how i soar" ;- serenity
Hey, maybe! My opponement was lame enough...
The guy was over the age of 9, he was 12, like me, though. He is a noob, but...even Adam 1911 couldn't have deployed worse.
It seems to me thet Adam 1911 is like a synonym for a crappy warhammer player now. So calling someone 'Adam 1911' or '1911' or 'an Adam' is like insulting them.

Erm, threads are closed when there is a good reason too: flaming, drifting too far off topic, spam, and the like. They are not closed because the user who started the thread has determined that the thread topic is now exhausted.
Starting a thread is putting an idea out there for public commentary. Once that's done, whoever started the thread gives up ownership of the idea.
There's no reason to close this. Other people may want to comment on it. Please make these requests only for good reasons in the future.
Good try at a battle report, but you should go in to more detail so that you don't get those sort of comments. Sounds good though, and in future, I hope to see another great "battlereporter", could be you!
