2 warmachines

note= both captain are in a unit of knights seperate from the other 2 making 3 total knightly orders!  Unless the captains wish to roam about solo!
Also captains post your magic items at the top of your first post!
 

  William gets all the units together and they march out of ostland with a few people waving good-bye the army makes great pace the huntsmen scouting ahead of the army for traces of the orc horde.  Rathis and the scouts return with a kislev he seems to be the lost messenger of the defeated kesliv army.  The guy looks terrified constantly looking around at the ground and up in the sky he can barely speak but nothing he sais makes real since.  William orders the army back to order and gets ready to order the men to march again when his Griffon Skar roars in hatrid the stunned Elector count looks confused until he see's what the griffon does an orc mounted wyvern is flying head on towards the army.  Skar launches out heading directly for the beast they collide in mid-air throwing both William and the enemy orc from there backs.  The the relief of the soldiers William stands unscathed everyone watches in awe as the 2 beast fight they head up into the clouds the fighting continuing for many minutes suddenly it goes quite.  The wyvern flies down and lands next to its master the orc runs over to mount his steed but never gets the chance as a brown blur shoots out of the clouds like and arrow and lands hard on the beast back Skar roares in victory as the wyvern breathes its last breaths.  The Orc Warlord looks in utter amazment but manages to run into a nearby forest where horns are heard ringing through the valley.  Skar stumbles towards William he gets it on one of the wagons and sends it towards home to heal it was in no condition to continue fighting!  The elector Count frowns having to ride his horse instead of his beloved Griffon but he manages and heads for the unit with the 2 captains in it.  The Orc army floods from the forest William orders Rathis back in the ranks he starts to turn and run back but Huge savage Orcs jump from the ground smashing the terrified Scouts Rathis and his friend are the sole survivers sprinting back to the Empire lines.

  William shakes his head and gets the men in line for battle he puts the knights of the white wolf on the right flank and the other knights on the left flank.  He has the cannon crews set up on a nearby hill and immediatelly starts ordering them to fire at will.  Orc and goblins come out of the forest there numbers looking endless.  The kislev messenger looks around terrified and starts screaming BOAR RIDERS! BOAR RIDERS! BOAR RIDERS!  he runs up to the Elector Count still screaming he has the crazy man dragged to the rear of the lines until he see's the not so sneaky Boar boys moving around to flank the entire army had he not have noticed this they would have surely been slaughtered he sends the Captains with the Inner Circle knights panther to meet the boar boys flanking them he wishes them look being out numbered 4 to 1 the infantry troops in the middle are ordered to hold there ground until they feel ready to charge.  The pistoliers have already taken off before this order was evan given!   The Green horde approaches the first wave being 90% goblins accept the boar boys fighting the knights Panther!

  William makes one last battle cry before they close in Men of the Empire may Sigamr be by our sides!

Good luck boys!

Konrad von Richtmark shouts to his pistoliers: To the right! Flank the boar rider horde!

*He takes the lead himself, and a dozen of young impetuous nobles follow him. They ride along the left flank of the boar rider horde which is flooding down the knights' left flank, threatening to encircle them*

Fire at point blank! Keep moving until we reach their rear!

*Konrad looses all three shots of his repeater pistol into the head of a boar rider, its brains splattering out soaking Konrad. The other pistoliers fire, relieving the knights from the threat to their left flank*

*Konrad tosses aside his repeater pistol and pulls another brace of pistols from his belt*

Move! To their rear!

*A boar rider makes a headlong charge against Konrad, in the last minute he manages to shoot its head off, halting its charge and barely saving his horse from being skewered on a spear.*
The only good thing about 7th ed heads is that they look particularly inbred and superstitious which is perfect for Stirlanders

OCC: we need more activity!

  1/6 of the boar boy's brake from the group charging head on at the pistoliers either flee and try and flank them or be outnumbered atleast 3 to one!

WHat does OCC mean?
ANyway...

Otto Yells a battle cry.. Something in the name of Sigmar.. He charges a goblin with a magical sword.. He knows this by the green light going up the blade... He Attacks but his str is wailing..  Hoping the sheer strength of the attack will kill him... It does.. But he throws his sword at Otto.. But Luckly.. His full plate armor stands up to the strike.. the goblin falls down...
Just then.... The Greatswords banner bearer waves his flag.. The Goblins see this and run as fast and as far as their little green legs can carry them...

The GS Hold.. Waiting for his commander to tell him where to go(Whos the lord in this RPG :?: )?

OOC: could you please remember that my character's name is Lethair!  :wink: . And also, where did that orc come from, I must have noticed something  :?

Lethair and Logan sprint back towards the empire line fleeing from the orc brute that had so suddenly appeared from the forest. As they reache the lines, they are met by the valiant unit of halberdiers led by Gunther Durnstom, an friend of Lethair since his childhood.
Seeing Lethair coming towards him covered in blood, Gunther orders five halberdiers to escort the young wizard and the veteran scout back to the cannon at the back of the line.

When the two reach the cannon crew, they look back upon the battlefield and see the carnage that the orc horde is wreaking on the empire line. The unit of Gunther is attacked by a horde of goblins, but the combined attack of the halberdiers and the militia led by Betrand manages to drive the goblins off.

OOC: has anyone taken over Gunther's halberdiers, or should I direct them now that my huntsmen were brutally slaughtered  :(

  The cannon crew still havent focused there fire the Empire line barely throws back the wave of goblins taking heavy losses.  The goblins run panicing back to the forest turn around this time orcs in there ranks keeping them from running 60% goblins 30% orcs 10% boar boy's flanking!  William quickly gets the greatswords moved back to the abttle line still standing the middle!  The Orcs and Goblins give them no brake striking immediatelly 3 fanatics come spinning in towards the empire line William looks in horror as 6 Spearmen get dropped!  One of the fanatics turns right around and heads back into its own unit going clean through killing many until it was struck down by a Massive Orc!  This Orc is no mear Orc it is easily noticable among all the other green skins standing a foot and a half over every other orc muscles bigger then the counts griffon William frowns as it makes its way towards the greatswords!  Also an Orc Boar leader challenges Phil and they fight to a draw currently!

Georg von Gewicht's swordsmen, being deployed last, now spring into action ! With their swords banging on their shields, they start their slow advance towards the goblin hordes coming towards them...

After a few moments of hesitation, Georg von Gewicht orders a charge of his unit against the opposing greenies. At the same time the militia detachment makes a support charge, and the handgunners let loose a hail of bullets towards the enemy.

The goblins seem to falter, but then stand their ground. They haven't marched this way for nothing! The fight goes on and on.

Lethair sees the devastation the fanatics are wreaking on the empire lines and dispatches the remaining two with some easy cantrip making their balls stick to the ground. Also, he notices the boar riders advancing upon the flank facing the knights panther. Just at the moment the two cavalry units charge at each other, he opens up a pit of shadows just underneath the boar boys, the first few of them fall down into the pit and the rest falters in their advance giving the knights panther just the advantage in speed when the two units clash...

Ivandegi and his swordsman push forward to line up better with the free companies and great swords!  Lethair smiles after using his pit of shades spell he turns just in time to see a Green haze shaped as a fist coming right at him!  Only the years of training in the colleges of magic saved him as he counters the spell just as it hits him he is knocked from his feet but gets up unscathed!  Twenty feet in front of Letahir i a Night goblin shaman he is already starting to cast another spell. (seems you have yourself a duel)

Fearsome Phil is struggling with the sheer power of the orc boar leader before one of his faithfull knights causes a distraction to the leader of the boar unit. In one swift motion Phil grabs the Sword of Sigismund and slices into the gut of the Orc piercing his posioned heart and spilling his innards across the battlefield.

Phil>'Yarghhhhhhhhh, may that be a lesson to all you digunting runts who dare to challenge my wrath!'

With their leader in pieces on the floor, the orcs turn and flee like the cowards they are. The knights charge the clower boars down and skewer the remains into shreads.
Ooooooooo Yeahhhhhhh! Let the madness meet the mania, and let my Griffon eat your general!

Lethair quickly reacts to the shamans attack with a spell of his own. He chants some arcane words and suddenly a black shadowy steed appears before the young mage. With a flick of his hand he sends it storming off towards the shocked goblin. In seconds the horse reaches the goblin and tramples him to the ground.
Logan, understanding the tactic of his friend, follows up the attack by the horse by a charge of his own, and before the stunned goblin can react to this next threat, Logan slides his long hunting knive through the creature's troat.

Seeing that this threat is taken care of, Lethair turns his attention back towards the battle unfolding.

OOC: you must have made a mistake with the distance, the two wizards were almost within striking range  :wink:

'Phil takes a moment to view the battle from afar, he takes his Knights of the Forest onto the Harroburg Hill, reknowned for many an Empire victory and peers across the battlefield. Before Phil knew what was going on though a massacre of arrows was being hailed at him by a horde of Orc Arrow Boyz and some shifty Goblin Archers. Before they could move half the unit had been slayed and Phil was in trouble.'

Phil>'Men, we have to get out of here! Raise the flag!'

'The standard of steel was raised and the Kinghts of the Forest led by Fearsome Phil charged at an incredible pace into hundreds of Orcs/Goblins to fight for their lives'

OOC: @ heiglot: try the banner of Sigismund

Only know seeing the large group of archers on the other side of the battle, Lethair was too late to protect the Knights of the Forest as their numbers were halved by arrow fire. As the knights charged into the large mob of greenskins, Rathis conjured another fifty illusionary knights to fight alongside the Knights of the Forest, in the hope that the greenskins wouldn't see the difference and think they were best by twice as many enemies as they actually were.

Coldur, after seeing the first signs of a massacre, held his knights back, waiting for a gap to appear for them to charge through. After several minutes a gap opened between the spearmen and the greatswords. Seeing his chance, he ordered the chatge. The unit galloped straight through the gap, hitting a unit of goblins hard. Coldur with his lance held low, slew several gobbos at once, skewering them on his razor sharp lance. With the carcases on the lance, it was too heavy to use any more. He threw it at another gobbo, not wanting to waste it. He immediately drew his sword and started hacking at the little green wretches that were surrounding him.
