Holiday Update Part VI: BatReps


Roughly a week ago I played two games with some friends. Mark and myself had decided to play a game of Warhammer Fantasy, his Skaven and my Dwarfs are age old enemies by now and always like to clobber each other. As some friends of us, David and Jesper, are starting out in the wondrous world of gaming we invited them to come watch.
In the heat of battle I forgot to keep track of everything but here are some pics:

Deployment and rolling for first turn:

Skaven menacing front-line:

The Skaven clash with the Dwarflord his hammerers and the Iron-breakers, for the record: the dwarfs charged!

Loads of dead rats:
Most of the Skaven centre on the run:

Our Doom is wheeling near...

Ikkit claw in combat with the Runesmith, this battle he won, only to perish in the end...

The tide is turning and so are the dwarven warriors
Skaven slaves charge and vanquish a unit of thunderers

The Skaven overcome the fence and the Dwarfs flee

The most memorable events were Mark shooting his jezzails and gasmortar at the dwarfs, killing two warriors (i.e. 16 pts in my army list) only to blow up his mortar, 3 jezzails and some other regular Skaven amounting to about 160 points of his list and his warpfirelightingcannon scoring a hit on my warriors (with a potential 9 hits) and Mark realising the rules for the darn thing had changed so he rolls the artillery dice instead and rolls a misfire and blows up the gun!

More pictures of this day of gaming soon!

Cheers Sander

damn clan skryre must have sabotaged their contaptions before sending them into battle. The only reliable unit was the 60 point slave regiment soaking up all doomwheel unvoluntary discharges and driving some dwarfs off the table.
