Commander Helstrom,

Again today I march forth from the town gates to cull both the forest and the creatures that inhabit it. After our last battle we cautiously reentered the forests on the eastern edge of the clearing surrounding the town.

The beasts of the forest were waiting for us, but they sprang their attack too soon and my men were ready and waiting for their onslaught. Their forces were accompanied by a Giant Dragon Ogre Shaggoth, a horrendous monstrosity foully corrupted with disease and decay. This creature strode onto the field ahead of chanting and braying beastmen with an unnatural confidence, no mortal could stand before this vision of death.

Man might not have the sheer brute might to match such a freak of nature but our ingenuity compensates. The very first moments of the battle saw the beast struck by a cannonball to the chest, with a great howl it staggered backwards, mortally wounded. The rattle of my outriders handguns provided the final wound to slay the beast.

This one act took the fight out of the beasts and my men advanced into their lines and swept the stunned creatures away, our only notable loss ironically was the self destruction of my helblaster volley gun. I humbly request requisition of a new piece.

Region: UK

Battle Size: 2400pts.
Objective: Pitched Battle.
Fluff Objective: Cleanse and Burn the foul inhabitants of the forest and lay waste to their hidey holes!
Outcome: Massacre.
Cool Moment: His shiny new Shaggoth successfully managed to headbutt my cannonball on the first turn for 6 wounds. My outriders then gun his last wound down. Such is the fate of newly bought units used for the first time. His beasts then bounced off my blocks and knights and did a lot of running away.

Our second game today was much more interesting, which is leading on to a small run of themed games. I can report that one tomorrow.

Objective: Flank Attack

Outcome: Solid Empire Victory
Cool Moment:

General Helstrom,

Our base camp outside of the Waldberg was being harrased by orc incursions.  On the morning of July 2 our scouts reported back a large column of orcs, escorted by the evil Dwarfs of the east, moving northwards towards Auenwaldheim.  They moved in great numbers, and this, good sir, is why we have only been hitting scattered bands.  Auenwaldheim must be their objective!

I quickly assembled a patrol and sent them out to hit the flank of the enemy whilst I gathered the rest of the troops for a supporting maneuver.

Sigmar was with the men that day because they hit the orc lines unaware and the impetus of the attack confused the beasts and sent them running.  I have sent word to Herr Rufas the Eccentric, defender of the fair town of Auenwaldheim that he will be having many guests arive at his doorstep soon.

O.v.B.

General Helstrom,
Yet another force of orcs has beset our location.  They keep shouting 'cruzade' as they charge with animal ferocity.  If not for their courage and the protection of Sigmar I don't know what would become of this land.

The attack upon our lines was brutal, if not for a counter charge by the Hunters of Sigmar who burst from the woods, the line may have been lost; our camp was very vulnerable.

In the end, neither side could claim the field and we both warily withdrew.  I sent word to Anders Brechausen to cover our retreat, which he expertly accomplished.

Commander Helstrom,

It saddens me to report a tragic loss to our cause. Our routine slash and burn of the forests around Egonsdorf began today at dawn and all is going well. I predict that next week all going to plan we should be able to begin road construction to link the oasis of civilisation together in this wilderness and one day I hope all this land will be verdant, fertile plains.

We clashed with the beasts of the Lord of Decay again today and though we beat them off the field, the battle this time was a struggle and I lost many of my men. Foul Minotaurs and Pestigor ripped my swordsmen to shreds. Thanks to the Hunters of Sigmar and the Morrian redeptionists, they aided my state troops on the opposite flank to this slaughter and routed the majority of the beat herd.

They could not reach the other flank in time and much slaughter was wrought upon my men, it was Herr Stilgarr and the Battle Shrine of Morr that was the focal point for the heroic stand of the men of the Ostermark. As they died to a man, the final moments of the battle saw four minotaurs charge through my men and smashed asunder the battle shrine.

Soon afterwards a cannonball ripped into the bull headed beasts and slew them all in one fell swoop. This saved the life of the High Priest of Morr Stilgarr, it did not save some of the priceless relics of Morr that were stored in his mobile altar. The beasts made off with them into the forest before the rest of my forces could catch up with them.

Stilgarr lies wounded in his bed and I vow to Morr, Sigmar and you, my commander, that I shall return these relics of Morr before evil can be wrought upon them, or that tales of their loss  begin to dishearten the god fearing people of Egonsdorf.

4th July

Today is a black day in the history of the Irregulars.  Today we discovered the bitterness of victory in a battle that should not have been fought.

It began early in the morning, our scouts reported a large throng of dwarfs were approaching our position.  I believed that once we had explained our orders the dwarfs would be persuaded to divert their march away from Egondorf.  And to ensure there was no accidental clashes I ordered our patrols to return.

Alas I had no idea what this apparently innocent action would provoke.  It appears that as the patrols converged back on our position the dwarfs became convinced that they were being surrounded.  A hastily organized cavalry force was dispatched to explain the situation to the dwarfs.  But it was too late, the dwarfs seeing cavalry riding towards them opened fire and needless battle ensued.

Fortunately for our forces the battle took place around one of our prepared artillery positions, affording our side superior heavy fire power.  This was noticeable from the start our cannons, mortar and rockets sewing destruction among the dwarf artillery and missile troops.

I found myself commanding my personal guard of greatswords, supported by the Irregular swordsmen led by Captain Fredericks, bearer of our army standard.  I was confident that our infantry line would hold.

How wrong I was to be proved.  The dwarfs fought with furious anger and my men were falling left and right.  Lord Morin Ironhammer himself leaving a bloody gape in the swordsmen regiment he had engaged.  Even my own greatswords were being cut to pieces by the dwarf warriors axes.

Such was the dwarfen fury that I am ashamed to say our line failed and ran before them.  Our position looked utterly hopeless.  As I shouted for my men to hold and reform desperately before our retreat took full effect and our army be lost.

Then just as Lord Ironhammer was shouting his victory cry there was a massive boom.  At near point blank range our last function great cannon spoke.  As the cloud of smoke cleared Lord Ironhammer had fallen.  Struck by the iron shot.

The battle seemed to pause as the two sides were stunned by this impossible action.

I was able to rally our infantry and counter attack the now shaken dwarfs.  The loss of Lord Ironhammer took the fight out of the dwarfs and they fled the field.

A truce was called and both sides collected their dead and injured.  As I reviewed the battle it struck me that rarely is such bravery so wasted as I witnessed today.

4th July

Whilst I was lamenting the battle against the dwarfs another part of the Irregulars had been seconded to High Priest Johan Klast.  He and his warrior priest attendant demanded that the Irregulars lend their forces to his sortie to find the Druchi raiders.

As a devout man, I have no wish to quarrel with the priesthood.  Thus two battalions of Irregulars marched off with High Priest Klast, who had assembled a combined force that included many Hunters of Sigmar and the services of a Steam Tank from the Imperial College of Engineers.

Late in the afternoon Klast’s sortie found their quarry.  A large contingent of Druchi raiders accompanied by all manner of monstrous beasts.  The Druchi were not unaware of Klast’s approach and with deafening roars the battle commenced.

The cannon’s scored an early hit on one of the great winged beasts but alas it did not fall.  The crews were then quickly overwhelmed by the Druchi flying forces.

But High Priest Klast had set a trap.  His infantry regiments were placed behind his guns, allowing them to counter charge and take revenge for the loss of the guns.

The Hunters of Sigmar charged on both flanks, routing and destroying all opposition.

Seeing his army was being destroyed the leader of the loathsome Druchi was forced to retreat.  Johan Klast led the victory anthem and the Irregulars returned to camp in boisterous voice.

General Helstrom,
After establishing our position at the fort of Waldberg, I deemed it necessary to abandon the position and move eastward towards the town of Auenwaldheim.  Upon discovery that was the orc objective I ordered our troops to move with all haste to reinforce Herr Rufas the Eccentric of the Celestial Order.

As we marched an aide approached reporting that some of our men, who had been captured, had been spotted in a slave carravan with a mixture of greenskin and Chaos Dwarf guards.  I dispatched a small contingent of swordsmen with a group of huntsmen and two Hunters of Sigmar, who lead the attack.

Normally, I would not write you for such a small battle as this, but the outcome was a great success.  Our men charged valiantly and scattered the evil forces and freed every last man.

Let it be known to all that while they still live we will fight for them!  This is a great day for our Empire.  Spirits have been at it's highest since we have arrived.

High Commander Ortolf Von Brennenburg, Helstrom’s 4th Army:

Sir, I am pleased to report good news!  Yesterday evening we arrived on the outskirts of Ft Waldberg with several hundred refugees from Mattengard.  As we were ushering the civilians into the protection of the fort, the towering form of a giant appeared on the horizon; it was a Night Goblin War Party that had been trailing us along the forest road for some time.  As the sun began to set, the Night Goblins attacked.  The men took the field and set up a line of defense before the fort.  The Hunters of Sigmar went out before us and drew out the fanatics, which by Sigmar’s blessing spun away from our forces.  My brave Reiklanders went toe to toe with the terrible Giant and showed their courage as they refused to give an inch of ground.  The momentum of the greenskin attack began to falter as Brothers Thabius and Lucas used the power of Sigmar to dispel their foul magic and the greenskin horde succumbed to infighting in their frustration.  The battle was won when the Spearmen and their detachments toppled the giant (away from them – thank Sigmar) and the Halberdiers charged the howling monster and cut it to ribbons.  The field was ours and the remaining goblins disappeared back into the darkness of the forest.  I “interrogated” a captured goblin and learned that this was a raiding party of a villain known as “The Snoot”.  He seems to have evaded capture along with his foul shamans.  Though the enemy dead lay everywhere, I fear that there are many more of these creatures still lurking in the dark forest.

General Helstrom,

It is my duty to report on a double engagement with dwarves that was forced upon us just south of Mattengard.  As we guarded the engineers, who were widening and clearing the road for the evacuees, a force of dwarves came upon us and demanded that we leave immediately.  I refused, forewarned of the dwarven treachery in ordering their hired ogre scum against Mattengard, and we faced battle.  The enemy artillery and missile troops were skilled, and Captain Helmgart was left with no choice but to order the retreat.  However, the Hunters of Sigmar refused his command and instead charged the enemy artillery.  It was a suicidal action, yet they crashed through the gun crews with nary a man lost, routing the dwarves and granting us victory.

They returned almost immediately from over the next hill, however, reporting that we had apparently only engaged a scouting column of the enemy army.  Unknown to us, they were laying out camp a mere mile away.  Without hesitation, I ordered all our forces forward.  Reinforced with the 3rd Battalion of Spears and more artillery, Captain Helmgart again advanced.  Precision artillery fire broke the enemy's counter-battery abilities, and they were forced to advance.  The Hunters of Sigmar outflanked them and our line held strong, breaking the enemy army completely.  They have retreated west; I ordered the pursuit off in order to maintain our protection of the engineers at the road.

The men are in high spirits, and Brother Otto's "Prayer Against the Dwarves" has been set to a rather raucous tune in the camp.  I will continue the patrol near Mattengard for the time being, but am also sending three battalions south with a contingent of Reiksguard and three batteries of artillery to guard the road to Waldorf.  With your permission, I will also begin construction on a series of outposts around Mattengard - using the engineers that I have with me - in order to better divine enemy maneuvers.

This is the fluff I submitted along with my battle results on the website. I think I hit on all of our objectives.

General Rodimutz, Helstrom's 4th,

Sir, after receiving your messenger and verifying your seal I have begun the march north towards Mattengard to assist in it's defence. We have encountered many refugees on the roads and have taken them into our protection. The Black Company encamped for the evening just south of Hunter's Haven and I held a meeting with my officers explaining your plans for the Black Company in the upcoming campaign. It was during this meeting that the High Elves under a Flaming Phoenix banner launched a surprise attack on the inn we were staying in. The first moments of the battle were tense as myself, my officers and my ogre bodyguards held the inn from a repeated attack including a shock assault by the elven elite swordsmen. I am proud to report that we never gave an inch of ground and repulsed the assault, inflicting reivous casualties on the enemy. Once the ground assault had passed we bunkered down and weathered the storm of arrows and other missiles that pounded the inn. Sadly, one of my trusted bodyguards fell to the sustained bombardment. Chancing a look out at the battlefield I saw that the elves were bringing up their cavalry and infantry for another assault. We prepared ourselves to sell our lives dearly when I heard the distinct sound of the pipes of the black company approaching the inn. The elves heard it too and began positioning their lines to intercept the Company. I saw the beautiful sight of Captain Carlito's banner as his pikemen emerged from the woods accompanied by a cavalry troop of the Hunter's of Sigmar! The units charged into the fray and locked the elves into a deperate fight. The skirimishers from the Petrograd Pistoliers relieved my bodyguard from the inn and I led a counter-charge with my ogres into the elf flank and destroyed the spearmen and cavalry. The elves unleashed a withering barrage of missile fire into Carlito's regiment and many pikemen fell but they held firm. Adolphus Kruge, my light wizard, managed to harnass the powers at his command and brought down a comet from the heavens to repay the elves for their cowardice. Seeing their hopeless situation, the elves began to retreat from the field of battle and were harrassed by the Hunters of Sigmar long into the night. Our casualties were light given the circumstances and the Black Company will be ready to move again by first light. Tomorrow we will escort the engineers from Nuln up to Mattengard to assist with the road improvements there.

Respectfully,
General Wolfgang Greiss, The Black Company

Region:
Armies: DoW vs. Dwarfs
Army Name: The Black Company
General: Wolfgang Greiss
Battle Size: 1000
Objective: Pitched Battle
Fluff Objective: scouting the area around Mattengard for enemy forces
Outcome: Solid Victory
Cool Moment: The look on my opponent's face when he remembered that table quarters count for 100 VPs each in turn 6 and I held three of them and contested his.

Supporting Fluff:
General Rodimutz, Helstrom's 4th,

I wish to report that a scouting party under Captain Johannes Bergstrom encountered a Dwarf raiding party scouting the same area around Mattengard ahead of our main column. Captain Bergstrom's force first made contact when a knight was pitched from his saddle by a bolt. At first, they thought they may be in contact with green skins or perhaps the remnants of the elf raiding force we encountered two days ago. Captain Bergstrom began to sweep the forests with his skirmishers, supported by a small troop from the Hunter's of Sigmar. The enemy force was well concealed and hard to detect at first although they were able to track them by sound. The scouts closed around the suspected enemy position and a unit of skirmishers was pelted with crossbow bolts. The celestial wizard, Marius Steuben, managed to cast a comet from the heavens onto the enemy lines which smashed into the ground illuminating the foe. At the same time the skirmish line made visual contact with the crossbowmen and a series of shots were exchanged. Upon noticing that the "enemy" were dwarfs, the scouting party brke contact and a cease fire was called. It was an unfortunate skirmish but we were able to scout the surrounding area and verify that it was clear as well as identifying the dwarf thane as one Grimgori Stonebeard.

The main column should be in Mattengard early next morning along with the engineer team from Nuln to work on the road improvements.

Respectfully,
General Wolfgang Greiss, The Black Company
