Excellent reports! I already downloaded that client.
You don't seem to get the great canon to pay for itself.  I definitely would favor picking out those 45 point rat ogres with it.

It takes some work to actually get the turns down but it works great!!
I would have gone for the rat ogres that second battle if it wasn't for the damn line of sight, they were constantly behind the damn trees.

The dice rolls were definatly not in my favor... all 3 flee / breaks didn't get higher then 5" on 2d6, also the hitting/wounding was horrible.

Edit:
And forgetting that I have the Rod of Power the whole game long didn't help either !!! DOH

Rocket Battery takes aim at the Clanrat 2 unit and gets the template above the unit and the wizard behind it. The wizard makes his Look Out, Sir! roll and 11 clanrats die in the process, a panic test is succesfully passed.
Crossbowmen takes a shot at the Rat Ogres with the 2 packmasters, killing both Packmasters and 1 wound on a Rat Ogre

Empire Declares no charges, Skaven General does declare a challange which is picked up by the swordsmen champion.
The Chanpion dies in the combat versus the General
Swordsmen loose 4 guys
Halberdiers loose 0 guys
Clanrats take 5 losses
Combat was won by 12 vs 9
The clanrats failed their Breaktest and flee.
The Swordsmen fail to catch the clanrats but the Halberdiers do.

 

End of game: Breakpoint of the Skaven reached by killing BSB, SB and General 5-4 = 1 (2 for breakpoint)

Turn 3 - Skaven
---------------
 

We decided to stick around for another turn to see how the battle would have continued.

Pursuit is worked out for the Swordsmen and Halberdiers from last turn.

The Gutter Runners made their ambush rule and came on the table behind my Crossbowmen
Hellpit Abomination needed to do a random direction move and moved infront of my wizard.
Clanrats 2 moved up towards my halberdiers with the ratling gun tailing
Wizard went into the woods
Rat Ogres went Stupid without their packmasters and moved 2" forward

Magic:
The seer tried to cast Wither but it got dispelled
The attampt to cast Cloud of Corruption, failed to dispel it.
On a 2+ the wizard got hit and died (4 hits, warded 2!!, but only 2 wounds)
On a 4+ the Ratling Gun got hit and killed (WOOHOO hehe)
On a 4+ The Clanrats got also hit and 2 got killed.

Shooting:
The Gutter Runners used their Slings to shoot at the Crossbowmen (double shot and move -2 to hit)
The Warpfire Thrower got 1 knight down.

End of Skaven Turn

Turn 3 - Empire
---------------
 
 

The Knights charged the Rat Ogres in the Flank
The Halberdiers got a Swift Reform off and moved towards the Clanrats 2
The Swordsmen failed the swift reform, and just reformed towards the Gutter Runners
The Crossbowmen moved out of the way for the swordsmen only moving 4" for a failed Ld test for marching

Magic:
Totally forgot to cast any prayers..

Shooting:
Mortar took aim at the Hellpit Abomination but missed
Cannon failed to hit with Grapeshot on the Gutter Runners
Rocket Battery was just far enough away and managed to hit and kill 3 Gutter Runners, which failed their panic test and ran off the board.

Combat:
Rat Ogre Champion issued a challange which my Arch Lector accepted.
My AL used the VHS and both did nothing in the battle.
The Rat Ogres lost the battle (Challenge was only contact) and failed their breaktest. They managed to run away from my Knights but needed to take a dangerous Terrain test for 2 Ogres as they ran through my swordsmen unit taking 1 wound.

This was the end of the battle totally as I needed to go home as the little one really needed to go to bed (she and my Girlfriend spend the time with the kids there)

Counted VP's:
Empire: 1066
Skaven 145 (1 Battle Wizard)
Crushing Victory for the Empire
HUZAA, HUZAA, HUZAA!!

Congratulations on the win!

A lovely display of "hang back and shoot them to bits while they charge". Also, I think that scenario is pretty cool, because even the nastiest of units (case in point: HPA) becomes irrelevant once the break point is reached.

Well I placed my block of halberdiers pretty much in the center... and he started placing his first clanrat unit all the way on the right side with all the terrain and I was like.. pah too much obstruction there to shoot it properly.. let it walk all the way to me so I set up on the other diagonal side of the table..

Note: also just noticed this ain't in the right section (used a quick link to my battle report thread...
I hope some admin can move this to the sub forum here where it belongs?

Edit: Thank you! :)

Turn 2 - Skaven

Not really sure about this, but regrowth says "Target Unit" and seeing the AL with the WAltar is one unit (just as with counting VP's when the WAltar is still there you don't get any points for the combination) we both figured this was a plausible thing to do.

Edit: hmm just read the spell again and near the end it states it can't heal characters or their mounts, so it wouldn't be possible. Good thing to remember next time..

  ------------------

Deployment
----------
 

Ronald rolled a 5 versus a 4 for me and he decided I would start deploying.
He deployed his Gutter Runners as scouts on the far side of the church ruins.

I finished deployment first and rolled a 4 versus his 2 and decided to go first.

Before Turn 1 I vanguarded my Pistoliers straight forward with a small turn to the left towards his 2 weapon teams behind the rock

Skaven from left to right:



Empire in one shot (pre vanguard):


Magic was rolled:
Grey Seer rolled a D3 to determine the amount of Warp Stone Tokens, he got 1.
Grey Seer then rolled for his spells:
2) Warp Lightning
3) Howling Mob -> Replaced this for 13th Spell
4) Death Frenzy
6) Crack Skull

Plague Priest rolls for his spells:
1) Pestilent Breath
4) Vermin Tide

Warlock Engineer rolls for his spel:
6) Crack Skull

Wizard Lord (Life) rolls for his spells:
2) Flesh to Stone
4) Shield of Thornes -> replaced for Earth Blood
5) Regrowth
6) The Dwellers Below

Battle Wizard (Shadow) rolls for his spells:
3) Withering
4) The Penumbral Pendulum

Turn 1 - Empire
---------------
 

Movement:
Moved the Flagellants forwad as I wanted them ASAP into combat befre they would be shot to bits
Moved the Pegasus Captain across the battleline to my cannon/mortar to pick up the Gutter Runners, Hope he will be in time!!
Pistoliers marched up to get a clear shot at the Mortar Team.



Magic:
5PD vs 4DD, Winds of Magic were low.
Failed to cast the Penumbral Pendulum, but failed to cast it with 3 PD.
Warrior Priest wanted to cast Hammer of Sigmar on the passing Pegasus Captain, but got dispelled on an equal roll

Shooting:
The Great Cannon took aim at the Ratling Gun team aiming 6" short but rolled an 8" and over shot it, nothing behind it so didn't take the bounce roll
The Mortar crew was pretty scared of the closing Gutter Runners and tried to solve the problem by taking an indirect shot.
It was only slightly of target and managed to kill 1 Gutter Runner
The Helblaster didn't have a target yet so they relaxed for a bit to observe the battlefield.
The Pistoliers took aim at the Mortar team and killed it
Panic tests needed to be resolved: Clan Rats 1 made their test, Clan Rats 3 made their test, the Warpfire Thrower did not make his test and fled 8".

Close Combat:
We didn't have any thing to chop up yet.

Turn 1 - Skaven
---------------
 

So the turn was up for  the ratmen.

Movement:
No charges were declared.
The Warpfire Thrower rallied
Doom Wheel moved up towards the Flaggelants
Clan Rats 3 with the Screaming Bell, Clan Rats 2 and the Censur Bearers all moved up.
The Gutter Runners sneaked up to the Great Cannon.



Magic:
9 PD vs 8 DD
The Screaming Bell rang it's DingDong and rolled a 6 for a Reroll failed Ld tests within 24" for his turn
Warlock Engineer tried to cast Crack Skull to kill some Pistoliers, but it got dispelled
Grey Seer casts Warp Lightning at the Flaggelants but this also got dispelled.
Then the Grey Seer casts the 13th Spell with all his remaing dice and rolled 22 (+4 for the level of his wizard) and with 2 DD I could not counter it.
He rolled 15 on the Flagellants and those 15 turned in to rats and got killed by my remaining flaggelants.
I stored my remaining 2 DD in the Rod of Power.

Shooting:
The Ratling Gun wanted to finish of my Flaggelants but blew itself up in the process.
3 of the 5 Jezzails got to shoot between the Clan Rats 2 Unit and the Doomwheel to also try and finish off my Flaggelants. Due to poor shooting they only killed one Flaggelant.
The Doom Wheel rolled for a Ld test to restrain itself from shooting at the nearby Clan Rats 2 unit and made this roll
The Warp Lightning Cannon took Aim at the Pegasus Captain but overshot him, though he managed to hit the Hellblaster but the structure of this specialist cannon withstood the beating.
The sneaky Gutter Runner grabbed their Throwing Stars and tried to hurt the Great Cannon crew. Though the crew got some extra training in taking cover and they all survived.

Close Combat:
The little rats didn't have anything yet to set their claws and teeth in.

Turn 2 - Empire
---------------
 

So Empire's time to strike back at the little crawlies.

Movement:
Flaggelants tried to restrain from charge the closest enemy being the Doom Wheel, but they got so exited that they still charged the Doom Wheel. (rolled double 6 on Ld 10! )
The Pegasus Captain rushed once more to aid the Artillery group.
The Pistoliers manouverd a bit closer to the Clan Rats 1 Unit (at 4" away to get the repeater pistol in short range)



Magic:
9 PD (+2 from the RoP) vs 7 DD
Wither cast by the Battle Wizard on the Clan Rat 3 unit got dispelled
Penumbral Pendulum (normal version) also cast on the Clan Rats 3 Unit (specifically the Screaming Bell) was cast succesfully and the Dispell attempt was failed. So rolled 6D6 for the range and with 4 dice going on 2's and 3's I didn't make the range.

Shooting:
The Great Cannon turned to face the Gutter Runners to load them up with Grapeshot. Rolled 8 hits and killed all 4 Gutter Runners.
The Mortar crew now more confident about doing their intended job aimed for the Clan Rats 3 unit, but seaminly still shaky from the thread the Gutter Runners presented they missed their target and almost hit one of the pistoliers!
The Hellblaster Volley Gun finally had a target just viewing past the ruins infront of them and could take aim at the Clan Rats 3 unit nominating the unit itself for the shots.
Rolled an 8 and a 2 for 10 shots already. The Crew feeling lucky decided to fire the last set of barrels aswell, but theu misfired on them. The Helblaster Volley Cannon blew up but not before shooting all 30 shots out! With those 30 shots they killed 27 Clan Rats!! They remarkably made their Panic test.
Rolled an 8 and a 2 for 10 shots already. The Crew feeling lucky decided to fire the last set of barrels aswell, but they misfired on them. The Helblaster Volley Cannon blew up but not before shooting another 10 shots out! With those 20 shots they killed only 2 Clan Rats!! They remarkably withstood the barrage.

The Pistoliers now took aim at the Clan Rats 1 unit and killed 4 Clan Rats.

Close Combat:
Due to Initiative the Doom Wheel got first attack and killed the 3 Flaggelants.
Just for fun I decided to roll to martyr them on a D3 and rolled to martyr all 3 of them effectively suiciding the unit :)

Time was short on our hand and we had to abord the game here, but agreed on continuing it on another day. I will follow up on this battle then!

Empire wipe out
Difference in points was 1630.

Notes:
Captasus is not really my thing to use.
Should have gone earlier into combat with my swordsmen and halberdiers this game as I lost to many men by waiting.
My arterlley needs more protection.
Not sure about the Flaggelants.. I haven't seen much killing yet in several games and they attract mucho magic and shooting before they even get into combat..
That on it's own might be worth something as decoy unit but still lots of points lost there.

Already had another (maybe better suited to my playstyle) 2k list that will be used next time.

Steg out!

Good report Knight,

Some points I am not sure and I would like to clarify:
- the magic resistance of the war altar should not improve your ward save against magic weapon if I read correctly the rule book.
- when you shoot the hellblaster, if you misfire on the last barrel and get the results "all remaining barrels get 10 shoots" it only applies to the last barrel. In your case, you should have 8+2+10 shots that will still need to roll to hit...

The first point was also adressed by my opponent later and you are right. Only against damage caused by spells

The second point I just reread and indeed the barrel it concerns is affected and any remaining (which in this case is non) so should have been 8+ 2 + 10 I will correct this when we continue the battle!

Thanks for pointing me these out! This is the reason why we play and I report the battles just filter these kind of mistakes out and to get our game more pure!

You are already pounding your opponent so I guess I could give him a hand. I didn't want to sound bad pointing these mistakes.

I am also very surprise by the very poor shooting phases of the ratman, I am used to see much more efficient warmachines especially the mortar. It has  a longer range and can start to be effective early in the game.

I like also how you setup combined charges to get rid of his blocks. Very effective.

you don't sound bad at all!! I want to win fair and square not due to some misinterpertations of the rules (or misreads due to the heat of the battle or due to time limits not reading carefully enough) Also this was my first use of the Helblaster so I did expect some messups..
Practise makes perfect (well eventually I hope before a new rules update  :engel: :dry: )
 
Well the shooting of the rats being so bad in al those games is more the faulty dice in my opponents hands  :happy: He likes to blow his own stuf up before taking mine out  :biggriin:

I'm not sure if it was mentioned but grape shot's artillery dice roll does not equal the amount of hits, nor does the hellblaster.  It signifies the number if shots you get, at the BS skill of the cannon's crew (3).   The surely didn't roll eight 4+.  That's like a .19% chance or so.

I know the grapeshot isn't and needs to be done on bs skill to hit, that is actually what I did. I'm not sure if I did it on the HBVG (did it at the Eurobash though), but with a comment from earlier I need to redo it anyway I'll make sure to do it the right way then :)

Thanks atleast for pointing it out!

Warriors failed to catch them with 5"

Turn 6 - 2nd intervention army from Altdorf

A Massive Massacre for the Chaos Warriors.
They won this battle but the war isn't over!
