I will save space and report my first 2 battles from yesterday here:

Region: Talabec Borders
Armies: Empire vs Orcs and Goblins
Army Name: Mordheim Host, Helstrom's 4th
General: Father Gabe
Battle Size: 2000
Objective: Standard
Fluff Objective: Defense of Auenwaldheim
Outcome: Solid Victory
Cool Moment: Two units of flagellants smashing into two groups of black orcs, followed up by two units of knights slamming into their flanks after dispatching trolls and night goblins. 


Region: Talabec Borders
Armies: Empire vs Slaanesh Chaos Army
Army Name: Mordheim Host, Helstrom's 4th
General: Father Gabe
Battle Size: 3000
Objective: Flank Attack
Fluff Objective: Defense of Auenwaldheim
Outcome: Marginal Victory
Cool Moment: Sacrificing two units of flagellants and another of swordsman to halt six chariots, giving time for my knights and outriders to get into position to route all but the chariots of slaanesh.  My Arch Lector using von horstmanns speculum on a chaos lord and rightly stomping her into the ground.



I think I am seeing a pattern here with the Flagellants! You should write a tactica for them. I noticed earlier that you are on the first page of Talabecland results Father Gabe. Awesome!

Region: Talabec Borders
Armies: Empire vs Orcs and Goblins
Army Name: Wissenland Expeditionary Force - Helstrom's 4th
General: Ortolf von Brennenburg (although a flamboyant Gilderoy Lockhart lead the patrol, will explain shortly)
Battle Size: 375
Objective: Standard
Fluff Objective: Taking Waldberg
Outcome: Marginal Defeat
Cool Moment:  My spear regiment with halberdier detachment flead after being attacked by her entire patrol force.  Mr. 'Gilderoy Lockhart' (just a nickname) swung wildly like a sissy and ran for his life.  The crossbows held off the entire force by itself for three turns until the battle ended.

Herr Helstrom,
I just recieved word from my scouting party that they encountered a small band of goblins. My men were sent to investigate claims of a group of 'evil dwarfs' reported by local villagers when they stumbled upon this bunch gibbering, 'cruzade.'

The goblins struck with such ferocity upon our spear regiment, they fled without a fight, the captain followed closely. If not for the valiant stand of the crossbows, the day would have been lost. The crossbowmen withdrew in a gallant rear guard action, leaving the greenskins to produce more foul effigies; the likes of which have been reported throughout the region. The captain is being held on several accounts of cowardice.

O.v.B
Me and Wissenlander had babies!

not together.

Region: Barren Hills
Armies: Empire vs Skaven
Army Name: Schlaeger Guard- Helstrom's4th
General: Gustav Feindschlaeger
Battle Size: 500 points
Objective: Pitched battle
Fluff Objective: Defend the guns being transported to Egondorf
Outcome: Massacre for me!

Cool Moment: Not really a cool moment, but a cool last-half-of-the-game, where my humble unit of ten halberdiers stood their ground against a fully kitted out, 25 rat strong unit of clanrats PLUS chieftain.For THREE rounds. And in the final turn, helped by a failed panic check from the flank charge by the outriders, the halberdiers pursued and overran the clanrats! So that's a 50 point unit holding, breaking and destroying a unit of over 300 points.
But fair is fair, there was a most painful moment as well, when a ratling gun took out half of my swordsmen unit and it fled, taking my captain along with them.

Region: Barren Hills
Armies: Empire vs Vampire Counts
Army Name: Schlaeger Guard- Helstrom's4th
General: Gustav Feindschlaeger
Battle Size: 500 points
Objective: Pitched battle
Fluff Objective: Clear the forest!
Outcome: Massacre for me!
Cool moment: After forcing all my opponent's units into a bottleneck, my light wizard cast cleansing flare and obliterated the general, a banshee and a unit of ghouls. The loss of the necromancer also killed his wraith.
I had no casualties this game, and my opponent scored NO victory points AT ALL.

General Helstrom,

It is with deepest regret and embarrassment that I write this letter to you. Our Bogenhafen Irregulars were dispatched to patrol the road between the Waldberg fort and the Tower of Moonrise. In the course of our duty we came across an army of undead from the far south. What they were doing here I do not guess, but we commenced in laying down a barrage that decimated a large part of their force. With most of their mounted forces gone we began our advance slowly to get in position to make a counter offensive when one of our units overzealous with our previous success moved to a more exposed position. Things quickly went from bad to worse as the cannon exploded and our men began to panic in fear from a charge of the undead armies chariots. When all was said and done, only our Talabec archermen guides remained on the field of battle and had to secret themselves to escape notice. I apologize for this failure to hold our objective and ask for a chance for my men to regain their confidence on the field of battle.

Your Humble Servant,

Anders Brechausen
Priest

Region: Talabec Borders
Armies: Empire vs Tomb Kings
Army Name: Bogenhafen Irregulars
General: Anders Brechausen
Battle Size: 1000 points
Objective: Pitched battle
Fluff Objective: N/A
Outcome: Massacred
Cool moment: When my Pistoleers, Archers, and Crossbowmen killed all 8 of his fast cavalry on their side of the board in the turn 1 shooting phase. The rest of the battle was cool for my opponent. I was in a cramped deployment zone and was attempting to position my troops better when I put my Handgunners too far forward and his chariots began to roll up my line of troops.

Objective: Kill 'em All
Fluff Objective: Capture the Watchman's Tower
Outcome: Major Victory for the Empire
Cool Moment: The might of the steam tank turning the battle on a single charge in the top of the 3rd turn. A beast herd failed their test, broke, and went a full 12" on double sixes. This carried them through a unit of Marauders and another herd, which in turn, failed their tests. Without firing a shot, the tank broke half of my opponents army. They recovered in the next turn, but the damage was done and the beasts were left in prime position to be charged by my block of spears, knights, and knights.

General Helstrom,

Thank you General for giving my Bogenhafen Irregulars the opportunity to Escort our esteemed allies the Brettonians to the Headless Badger Inn. Upon arriving there we found the place under siege by various armies including the Rat-Men, Dark Elves, and the Undead Army from the South we met the previous day. Our valiant men cleared away the right flank from the building where a band of Dwarfs were beginning to flee from a melee on the other side of the building. We began to pound away with our missile troops and shot down a troop of Dark Elf Cavalry that was in the process of flanking our Brettonian allies. I am pleased to report that casualties were light and our cannon was true, wiping out several of the undead's chariots and a few of the lizard mounts the Dark Elves ride. We were able to repulse the invaders with impunity. I put myself at your service and await your further command.

Sincerely,

Anders Brechausen Priest

Oh Woe Upon Me!

Gentleman,
It is with deepest regret that I have to report my loss at the Headless Badger Inn (GW event) however it was a victory for the forces of light.  Allow me to explain briefly: The fogs of war were against the detachment I had sent to reinforce the Headless Badger Inn.  The flagellants and knights could not make out who our opponents were and they ended up fighting against high elves and fellow sons of the Empire! (To make sides even, I had to join the forces of chaos due to the order side having to many players, all of which were friends or game club membrs).  It is fortunate that they caused only a few casualties before realizing their mistake.  However this will go as a loss for my forces.  I will try to redeem myself tommorow at my clubs battle for the Headless Badger.

Cool Moment: Not sure, kind of embarrising.  So many players (5 on each side), no room to maneuver, stretched way to thin.  "allies" forgot the objective so "we" lost.  Sigh.

Commander Helstrom,
Having safely arrived at Egonsdorf I collected my orders and went about completing them. My objective was to sally from the town and slash and burn the forest from the east side of the town in preparation for impending siege and to facilitate future recivilisation of the area. My men left the town in high spirits after our well recieved victory in sight of the town last night. My men were given garlands and cheered out of the town this morning after their performance.

That battle must have left an equally large impression upon the greenskins as soon after we began our task of logging and setting fires the very same tribe of Orcs approached us prepared for battle. Led by a large imposing Orc it was clear that he wanted revenge and had come especially for us.

My army formed up and this time the battle was harder fought. The greenskins were determined to keep order amongst their ranks as their leaders were killing more of their men than my troops missile fire as the two lines maneuvered towards each other. Finally the lines crashed together and the meatgrinder of the shieldwall began. Reverend Stilgarr on his battleshrine made the first breakthrough by charging down a unit of trolls that were being egged on by a shaman. He then wheeled aorund to flank the greenskin line. The Orcs were much more reluctant to flee this time around and a lengthy fight ground on as neither army  would give ground.

On the other flank the Hunters of Sigmar tustled with a unit of boarboyz and were defeated, however they had managed to protect my artillery as the boarboyz charged off the field after the knights, only to return and join the large fight in the center.

The battle was brought to a close as finally the Orcs, seeing their numbers dwindling, fought their way back into the forest rather than routing. My men were too exhausted to pursue and regardless, we had our fires to set and further forest to cut down. We held the field to complete our objectives.


Region: UK
Armies: Empire Vs Orcs
Army Name: Helstroms 4th Ostermark IX.
General: Baron Reinhardt von Schadelandoese.
Battle Size: 2,000pts
Objective: Pitched Battle
Fluff Objective: Sally from Egonsdorf and slash and burn the surrounding forest.
Outcome: Solid Victory to the Empire.
Cool Moment: A huge multiple combat in the middle of the board that lasted for 3 turns until the end of the game, where no side would break and casualties were piled high. The battle shrine of Morr (WA) acquits itself magnificently, scrunching a unit of trolls led by a shaman then turning back to flank the greenskin line. Despite the final scrum being undecided, there were a lot fewer greenskins hanging on than there were humans. One black Orc manages to kill 5 of his unit thanks to a failed animosity check.

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

2nd July

The Greenskins have not troubled the Irregulars section of the Egonsdorf defences for several days.  With our forces better dug-in now our patrols were extended to further into the accursed forest.

Thus one of our patrols ran into a force at first believed to be Asur.  However, the appearance of reptilian creatures being used as cavalry mounts alerted the patrol leader that this was a Druchi raiding party.

The patrol immediately attacked.  And although the Druchi cavalry, and especially their leader, killed many troopers the evil raiders were driven off completely.  Further patrols sought to seek out the main force of the Druchi but no sign was found.

Some huntsmen later reported that the Druchi seemed to be heading south east, in the approximate direction of Tor Thana.

This system is great! A really good way to get the gist of how people are faring and how thier battles went.

Region:  U.K.
Armies:  Empire vs. Beastmen (10 huntsmen vs 9 gors and 13 ungors)
Army Name:  Sigmars Fury
General:  Captain George Luitdorf
Battle Size:  100 pts.
Objective:  Escape from the western table edge
Fluff Objective:  Warn the main empire force of the beastmen threat to thier flank
Outcome:  Solid empire victory (3/10 huntsman made it back to warn the main army)
Cool Moment: 1 huntsmen holding off against 2 gors and an ungor for 4 turns allowing his comrades to
escape, huntsman about to leave table charge by gor, shoots him dead and leaves next turn!

First win under my belt, next battle tommorrow is a 500 pt against the same beastman general, Ill have to get him registered though so that my win (fingers crossed) stands for more.
  Good luck fighting folks.
