Ok people, viting for this one is now open. Unfortunately ive heard nothing from Shrither, so i have a Seed list to accompany Andre, atleast for this round. Hope this is ok with everyone.
As it started 1 day later, voting on this match will finish 1 day late than the others.
That grudge thrower is going to cause some havoc. It's unusually accurate with the Master Engineer and Rune of Accuracy.
The additional quarrelers will outdo the Dark Elves. And that Scar Vet is going to cause major problems for the chariot.
I see the spider and wolf riders confounding things for the enemy somewhat, but I've got to give this one to Lizzies and Dwarfs.
I'm thinking Orcs and Dark Elves but it'd be close. If they use their speed to get dark riders, cold ones and the chariot around a flank then it's all in their favour. The greenskin cav can hold off the saurus cav for long enough to let it happen too. With the cav mopping up the dwarves it comes to a punch up between the savage orcs and the saurus; and the orcs might end up with returning cav on their side.
Still- poor luck one way or the other (I'm looking at you stoopid cav) then things will change.
No more NG spearmen, thanks! Now I need some pump-wagons!
I'm going to have to place my "much sought-after" vote in favour of the Dwarfs and Lizzies. That JSoD ill cause many, many problems. The Dwarfs have the enemy at shooting and the Lizardmen have them at combat. I see there is a lot of synchronization been going on
Besides, if the general can be taken down, the Saurus Cavalry will do much damage against the Orcs.
Right, now that I’m free and able to post some battle plan and tactics lets get this going properly. As currently in command of the dwarf lizzie alliance i put forwards the following.
Due to the enemy being rather damned nippy the logical response is to play defensive and maximise the superior firepower of our own forces.
The quarrellers would form up on the flanks of the 12 strong saurus unit and the whole force would be moved towards one of the table quarters. the grudge thrower would be emplaced on the outside edge of the formation and entrenched receiving both hard cover and a defended obstacle making it a rather risky prospect to attack with any of the lighter cavalry units. (dark riders, wolf riders, spider riders) as all charge bonuses are lost and a big negative modifier to hit them.
The cold one knights and jaguar veteran would act as a counter assault force making use of their high speed and manoeuvrability to engage enemy units of concern.
The grudge thrower would firstly eliminate the chariot on the grounds that "it can" thanks to its re-rolls on BOTH the scatter and artillery dice and its d6 wounds. Meaning that even a glancing hit would be dangerous. after the chariot is eliminated the savage orcs would come to its attention.
The quarrellers would be using their huge range right from the start to pick at and eliminate enemy light cavalry units and, if they entered range of both units, the cold one knights. In the event the saurus unit gets charged the quarrellers would act as flankers using their great weapons with lethal intent. If charged themselves they would try to hold on the basis that we are at the table edge ^_^
peace out, Arky :C

[16:19] <@Alzer> Arky's right though
[16:20] <@Kaiser-> I know he is.
[16:20] <@Kaiser-> He usually is.
[16:20] <@Kaiser-> Sometimes it's intentional.
[00:01] <+zubus> i love you, ya skirt wearin nothern monkey! ^_^
Well, given that im now alone out there i guess the battle is in my hands.
Given the defensive nature of the opposition the main objectives for me are destroying their more aggresive units.
To this end the dark elf crowwbows will be aimed at the saurus cavalry from the start, concentrated fire power should have them wiped out by the time my forces get into their charge range.
Im not entirely sure how I'd deal with the JSOD, but if i could tempt it out with one of my faster units, i might be able to isolate it.
The many fast moving units in my army give me plenty of oppurtunity to get round the flanks of the enemy.
The cold one knights will concentrate on getting to the enemy lines in one peice, this would require some screening action, probably from the spider riders (same speed) but would depend on terrain (maybe next round).
Once the, admittedly, proabbly depleted savage orcs get to combat range, they'll waagh to make sure of the charge, and their 12 S4 and 5 S5 attacks should murder whichever unit they come across, main target would be the saurus warriors. That said, if i broke through a unit of quarellors then id be behingd the enemy line, putting them in a very difficult position.
I'd say more, but i gotta rush off.
cheers for voting.
Arklite + Stonehambey
They have shooting close combat and some mobility with the cav and Scar vet. After the DE and Orcs make it through the shooting, I think the dwarves and lizzies will be in a good position to counter charge and win it.
This one is really hard to call. I think in the main, it will be decided by the results of Stand and Shoot charge reactions.
The only decent sized infanbtry block are the Saurus, anfd these guys are quite slow.
Given the Gwarf Grudge Thrower will likely nail the Chariot (although that will probably be its only kill, on average) Then the rest of the Orc/ De force will probably reach the dwaves pretty unscathed...
... were it not for those Quarellers. They will probably be hitting the small Spider and Wolf units and making those flee easily enough.
That leaves the Orc unit alive though, and i think they should be able to handle the lesser numbered Saurus in CC.
Ofcourse it depends how the Jag ScarVet is used. He pretty much needs to be kept in the Saurus unit, or DE shooting will likely pick him off. Pretty much restricting him to the Saurus unit.
Both CoK units will be fairly matched, probably the winner being decided by the charge.
So it all comes down to the Remainder of the Orcs (considering they have beaten the saurus) charging against the remaining Quarellers of which the DE shooting failed to kill. And i think this is where the game will be handed to the Dwaves and Lizzies.
Phew! Wow, what a machup...
This one goes to Arklite + Stonehambey 4-1. And here ends round 1.
