Journal of Carl Von Clausewitz, Military Advisor to the Talabheim Irregulars.

4th August

After a few days rest I led the Irregulars in one last push against the forces of evil.  It seems that having ousted the undead force from the tomb near the Tower of Vigilance they had migrated to Marchens Henge.

Fortunately I had anticipated another battle against the forces of the Vampire Counts, and had requested the aid of the colleges of magic from Lord Veldemere in Egonsdorf.  With the battle wizards bolstering our magical power we entered battle confidently.

Early in the battle our knights, the Hunters of Sigmar, charged out and swept aside ghouls and undead wolves.  Although many knights were later scattered by undead rising from the ground around them, their sacrifice was worthwhile, isolating the shambling units of skeletons and zombies.

Thus when our infantry advanced forcing the enemy to charge our detachments were able to outflank the enemy and the skeletons and zombies cutting down the undead.  At this point our wizards used their painstakingly prepared scrolls to prevent the enemy necromancers from reinforcing the undead infantry.  With their supply of reinforcements gone the undead were pushed back and crushed by our troops.

When the battle was over we faced the unpleasant task of burning the bodies.  No soldier of the Irregulars shall be defiled by foul magic in death.

As ever dependable, are you sure you are not Swiss?

Region: US - Talabec Borders
Armies: Empire vs. Druchii / DoW
Army Name: Army of Gorim
General: Earl Jodas ap Theron
Battle Size: 3001 points (yes, precisely, 3001 per side...)
Outcome:  Massacre
Objective: Pitched battle
Cool Moment: Brother Otto and the 6 of the Crimson Templars, who charged through enemy heavy cav (with mercenary general), dark elf crossbows, ogre ironguts, and dwarven mercenaries mercilessly.  They literally took the entire center of the field by themselves in 5 turns.
Let them taste Reikland steel!
