I know i'm most likely repeating a post that has been put up before, but i couldn't findone so i thought i'd put this one up.
Anyway, after my first proper battle with WE the other day, and meeting an unfortunate end for my guardians of Athel Loren, i started wondering to myself, what moments in other WE players battles do they remember well for being unique or completely unexpected.
I'll start off with mine.
I was playing against Orcs & Goblins in a 1500 point game, and throughout i was getting bad dice rolls, as is the norm for me. Anyway, eventualy i was down to my unit of Wild Riders hwo only the command had survived and my Wardancer unit down to six with full command. My Wardancer unit had destroyed my opponents chariot in the turn before and decided to charge a unit of at least 20 Black Orcs. (well thats wat i think it was, no good with fantasy Orcs :p ) Anyway, after charging them i dealt enough damage (at the cost of 2 Wardancers ) to make them flee, coincidentaly, i had my Wild Riders positioned behind the Black Orcs completely wiping them out.
Well thats my favourite moment, and it would be interesting to see what sort of things you other WE players have found to be your favourite moments in battle.
I was playing an Empire army, and there was a unit of those barded knights with the ridiculous 1+ saves ready to break my flank. I had a unit of 5 Waywatchers on that side of the table, and took some shots at them. Out of the five, four shots hit. Then, I rolled all 6's on the remaining four dice to wound. Thanks to Lethal Shot, that was four knights instantly dead and the unit fled into my Wildriders that had positioned right behind them.

One of my most memorable is when my treeman ancient failed his stubborn roll and ran from a unit of Saurus, sprinting up a temple. He was perched at the very top of it. Then I needed to roll a 9 for him to rally, but failed. I had one more attempt to save him, but he had seen enough and fled the table on my second rally attempt.
One favorite was in my last game, a 3000 pt one against Skaven, where my general had the AoN. In the climactic battle of generals, his warlord and my highborn squared off in a challenge. He had that blasted item that gave him a strength high enough to turn my highborn into paste.
Trying to squelch any sound of gloating in my voice, I announced that he'd need 6's to hit my general. He frowned and promptly rolled all 6's!
My shoulders slumped and I picked up my dice to roll ward saves with the rhymer's harp. To our mutual astonishment, I rolled three 5's of my own and went on to jack his warlord into the dirt.
My woodelf army runs a dragon at 2000pts. I was playing in tournement agaisnt a buddy of mine and he was usin vampire counts, i charged his grave guard with 6dancers in the front and my dragon lord in the front and royaly mangled them i got the outnumbering at he end of combat it was rather sad, three of them lived after resulotion, so he charges with his blood dragon with a great weapon on my dragon, kills my lord rather instantly, my dragon truns around and rips the guy a new one. Also in all my games my wood elf general dies my armies led by a Dragon.
Once I loaned out my Rulebook to one of my friends. Thing is, I got someone else around during that time. As a result of that, we didn't know what happened when they fail a Fear test when charging a fear causing enemy. In the end, we decided that they flee.
So, my Dryads were in combat with his Peasants. His Knights failed their Fear Test for charging the Dryads. So did their General. They fled to right in front of my Wild Riders who declared a charge against them. As they were fleeing, they automatically ran away from the Wild Riders. The Wild Riders then went on to catch not only the General, but also the Knights . 2 big units dead in oen turn, all because I din't have my rulebook with me.

my friend runs a rather cheesy HE list with a dragon lord which really peeves me- i can barely ever kill it. One game, he charges my dryads with his dragon, not realising that the accompanying Branchwraithe has the annoyance of netlings. Over 3 turns, the branchwraithe inflicts a wound on his general and then chases him down, gaining me something like 600 victory points.
id have to say when i had a bodyguard unit of Eternal Guard on my Noble, they all got shot out, i think about 12 eternal guard, all from boltthrowers and bows. My noble comes out unscathed, then aids the treeman in combat against a unit of 20 SwordMasters of Hoeth all tooled out and a mage. I killed off the champion in a duel, then got in a fight with a mage in the unit in another duel. The stupid wizard almost killed my Noble euipped for closecombat, with just a single hand weapon, but i then just chopped him down with my greatsword. It was pretty crazy, because for 2 turns, i lost combaat by about 5 each round, yet my treeman and noble both survived, and finally, after many panic stricken dice rolls, i broke the swordmasters and ran them down ...it was touch and go for a while, because i would have lost the game if i would have lost that combat....

Well my moment
2k WE vs. Orcs (the old O&G , with the grimgor list)
I got a rear charge with 3 wild Riders on the generals Black orc bodyguard unit. The unit failed it's fear test. I killed 2 orcs and the 2 others that could attack me didn't roll any 6's (only 4's and 5's, man long live fear:yes: ). I broke his unit, but he rolled 12, and I 11. BUT, the orcs ran into a wood, and were slowed and my WR's ran at full speed destroying them anyway.
Hope it helps

This Sunday, my wardancers charge frenzied seven Orc Boar Boyz, looking to drop 21 str 4 attacks on their smelly green skulls. How many wounds do I manage? One, just one. Even with their toughness and armor, which isn't that great in the first place, I should have killed more than that. As you can imagine, payback was hell, and my wardancers ran, ran away only to be brutally cut down by the pursuing orcs.
