This afternoon we had another game of Kings of War. The Dwarves were out for revenge in this one and decided to bring along a unit of allied Ogres to help the cause! The armies lined up as follows;
1 Elven King
1 Regiment of Spearmen
1 Regiment of Palace Guard
2 Half-Regt Palace Guard
2 Troops of Stormwind Cavalry
1 Bolt Thrower
1 Berserker Lord
1 Army Standard Bearer
1 Half-Regt Berserkers
3 Regiments of Ironclad
1 Half-Regt Ironwatch
1 Troop of Ogre Warriors
The Elven King gives his troops the "Freedom Speech"
The Ogres Lumber forward
The Stormwind Cav head out to the flanks, attempting to set-up for a thunderous charge
The Palace Guard march towards the Dwarven Ironwatch, who stand fast and pepper the Palace Guard with fire, weakening them and bracing for the melee.
The Ogres intercept the Palace Guard, while the Spearmen and Cavalry charge into the Dwarves ranks.
The fierce brutality of the Ogres is quickly realised as they slay through the Palace Guard Regiment in a single combat
The Berserkers inflict heavy damage on the Cavalry troop but due to a lucky Nerve test of double 1's the Troop fights on to counter-charge the following turn and wipe the Berserkers out.
After a brutal melee with the Ogre Warriors, the Half-Regt of Palace Guard regroup and make a move towards the damaged Ironwatch.
Once the last of the Berserkers had been disposed of the Stormwind make haste and charge into the Berserker Lord himself! In what would be the final turn of the game, the Lord failed a nerve test and flees from the battlefield!
Another fun game of fantasy. This one could have gone either way really, it was very close once all the push and shove in the centre started. It was only when the Stormwind started to flank the Dwarves started to feel the pressure.. The Ogres really are a menacing bunch, my Daughter wants to use more of them in the next game so we'll be hitting the painting table pretty soon to bolster the ranks.
Also, in the past 2 games we've intentionally left out magic users, but will be including them if desired, moving forward.
