Nice reports :)

like you, i don't know much about the tomb kings, but i fail to see the logic in commiting so many ressources for a single monster and letting you take the brunt of the fighting alone. Think of the result if it wasn't mindless gors (no offence meant, they just match a simple and determined chase) and they would have focused on you while the tomb kings where out of range for any help at all. It wouldn't have be pretty for you.

The stand off between hammerers and greatswords was epic. Quite lucky for you that they broke, being stubborn and ld 9, but epic non the less. The anvil is a pain, and there is no easy way of getting rid of it, so you did well under the circumstances. Had they waited to roll for the miners, or did they only turn up on chance that turn??

Thanks for taking your timing dealing this with us, and yes, i too feel like talking to myself when writing a report (having two laying about for months now)

My pleasure and thanks for the comments.

For the second game, I failed to mention there was objectives to hold the most hills, so ya it does change a bit the dynamics. #-o Still, there was not a great communication with my ally and ya, if theses beastmens marched my way, I`d be in for a ride. I would have been forced to fall back and funnel their forces in the tighter pass next to the idol, possibly having to commit the white lions with Alareille 5+ ward/BOTWD/ regrowth next to the spears while keeping the dragon princes in reserve for a counter charge, all the while using reavers to delay them. I`d hope by that time the tomb kings would have advanced to attack their flank, but ya, a though position to be in with chariots, beastmens, trolls and chaos warriors charging in. No argument from me for the over comitment of forces against that monster, I still don`t understand either. Let`s say the beastmen and tomb kings players were taunting each other all game long ( in a friendly manner ) :lol:

For the third game, greatsword were also stubborn with a good Leadership, so they weren`t going anywhere either. I wish I recalled more details but it was`nt my army. I know that warpriest was the key with his buffs for them to get the upper hand. And yes, the miners only turned up on a chance that turn. We had completely forgot about them on our side. I imagine it could have been worse if they were able to join the big battle earlier on. I`m not sure either on what happened with the rest of all theses Empire unit lagging behind, the 1st turn was a mess on that side. At any rate, that dwarf player was a tough nut to crack, I don`t think I would have been able to take him on, he gave us a run for our money. =D>
