This is my first battle report so please be kind.

 

The Koborlas Warlord, Vasyl, Alpha of the Rageclaw packs stared across the field as the dwarves came into view. He had not wanted this fight, but he wouldn’t shy away from it. As the Dwarves began to move across the field, Vasyl raised Doomcrier to his mouth. Doomcrier’s mournful sound shattered the air and the Koborlas howled in respose.

 

Vasyl heard Takhi, a shaman from the Ghostmane pack, chanting behind him and suddenly he felt himself moving swiftly forward. Glancing around himself, Vasyl saw that his own men were moving at the same speed as he was. At the same time, the Line Breakers and Wargs with Takhi also began moving up. A troop of Dwarven warriors and Halberdiers led by Fulumbar Ironhammer moved forward as Kainus and his pack moved ahead of Vasyl and Vasyl swore as he saw an Earth Elemental sink into the earth.

 

A stinging pain in his right side caught Vasyl’s attention and he glanced down to see a crossbow bolt from a Dwarven piercer sticking out. Vasyl grinned as his bloodlust surged. On the other side of the field, Takhi’s Line Breakers fired their massive crossbows at a line of Dwarven Piercers on a hill. The first missed the squad’s sergeant, Tohil Steadyhand, but the second caught a Dwarf square in the chest. The dwarves returned fire and managed to avenge their fallen comrade by downing one of the Line Breakers.

 

In the meantime, Kainus and his pack engaged a group the Dwarven warriors and Halberdiers led by Fulumbar Ironhammer. Kainis and one of his Rageclaw warriors made short work of the warriors they faced, but he lost one to a fatally wounded dwarf. Meanwhile, the Spirit Wolf that had joined Vasyl’s band earlier, suddenly burst from the woods and attacked Thorgram Grimsteel, the Dwarven King. Grimsteel was wounded, but avoided being savaged by the spectral canine. Grimsteel managed to land a blow that nearly crushed the Spirit Wolf’s head. Grimsteel then landed a second blow destroying the specter’s physical body.

 

With the death of his warriors, Ironhammer pulled his men back to regroup. The dwarven mage chose this moment to act. Spinning his hammer, he muttered spell and flung the hammer at the ground next to Kainus and his men. The spell unleashed a small earthquake, stunning Kainus and all but one of his pack mates. Taking advantage of their confusion, Grimsteel charged Kainus and took him down. Across the field Takhi attempted to use his magic to exhume the earth elemental so that his remaining Line Breaker could shoot it and the wargs hopefully destroy its physical form. Unfortunately for him, his magic failed and so the Line Breaker and the wargs chose different targets. The Line Breaker took out another Piercer, but the wargs were killed before they could do any damage.

 

Vasyl roared in anger as he saw Kainus cut down and charged towards the drwarven king. At the same time, his sentry charged Tohil Steadyhand cutting him down only to be fatally wounded by Steadyhand. The dwarven king stood fast against Vasyl’s charge, but was unable to stand against the mighty blows from Vasyl’s heavy-bladed qasik sword. With Grimsteel down, Vasyl turned his attention to that last of the dwarven leaders on the field and he too fell before Vasyl’s blade. Leaderless the dwarves quickly sued for peace and were allowed to retreat with their dead and wounded.

What happened to the Earth Elemental? ::(: He would have taken out that evil Vasyl! :grr:

 

:lol:

 

Those are my kind of games! The flip of an Init Card, the roll of a single die: the game could have easily swung the other way if something had gone your opponent's way. I love it! :wub:

 

I am glad to see that both of you fielded warlords in your 1,000 point army. I have tried to make Dwarf armies work where I field a warlord and my opponent doesn't and I typically lose. It is just too many points suck into a model too easily killed! :wacko:

 

I am very happy to see that Dwarves are feeling the love all over the country. Almost makes me cry. **sniff sniff** LOL! :lol:

 

Congrats WolfLord on your hard earned victory! ::):

 

Wild Bill :blues:

Thanks to WolfLord for a fun game. I don't get to play often enough, and even when I lose (often) I have fun. I based the color scheme on the Spartans at Thermopylae. Red armor because the enemy should never see a dwarf bleed.

 

Korbolas are FAST. Next time I've got to make sure there's more terrain on the board! Granted I made enough mistakes to be blamed for my defeat. One activation I forgot to use my Mage when there were two large point figures within fireball range. WolfLord had his share of bad luck, like having to deploy all his units after I placed one, and some really bad dice rolling.

 

I look forward to our next match!
