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
