Chaos Turn 2
Archaeon charged forward at the IC Knights, who failed their terror test twice!!!!
(11 and 10 rolled)
Unbelievable, they fled through the 70 Halberds, causing a mass rout!
The Halberds seeing their BSB and Wizard Lord turning tail, Decided that the battle was over , and turned to join the rout, fleeing off the table!!!
They would fight another day , but shamed the general , who would later learn their fate.
(rolled a 10).
Archaeon re-directed his charge at the Hellblaster Volley Gun, who's crew seeing his comrades running, and the Lord of Chaos fast approaching, also turned tail and fled off the board!!
The Empire left flank had taken a battering, but high on the Artillery hill, our main crews saw Archaeon in open ground and now primed their guns for action!
On the right flank , the marauder horde ate into the crazies, with flails and a frenzied banner, Wulfric and 40 attacks from Marauders with higher Initiative tore apart 30 crazies!!!
A foul end to these brave mens lives!
The marauding horde reformed to face the empire right flank.
The Walter and Genesus both failed to impact their opponents, the Nurgle Lord and Lector fought together with onlookers of chaos chanting, waiting to join the fray once the challenge was decided.
The Giant tore into the Xbows, who took two wounds from the beast, in a stand and shoot reaction. He clubbed them killing only 1 , but they failed their leadership test rolling a 9 and fled backwards into the Marauding horde, and were torn apart!!
The shock for the empire was severe.
The two main characters were left isolated with no Crazies, Xbows, or Halberds to back them up.
Empire Turn 3.
We still had enough troops left to make a success of the battle.
The knights rallied with ease!
The Halberds and Handgunners turned to face forest , as they had heard the marauding horde approaching.
Fred swiftly moved up his archers and the pistoliers moved into close range of the Chaos leader.
The pistoliers put the finishing wound on Archaeon, and he groaned as he fell to the ground!
The cannons took shots against the Chaos Ogres , taking 5 wounds from the beasts.
Mortar fire took maybe 10 marauders.
The Arch Lector finished off the Nurgle Sorcerer and the Genesus killed the Chariot..
