Turn Two


Esduin rolled initiative for the turn.


Esduin (TheVengefulOne)


Image

The formation of paladins skirt past the fire, regroup, and just have enough move left to charge into the line of stationary swordsmen. Three of the warriors fall under the charge, absolutely obliterating half the squad.





Image

The other formation isn't as lucky. They charge up the slope but roll too low to do any significant damage for some reason. One even crit-fails and drops her blade!





Image

While another is downed by counters, Frostborne claiming their first kill of the game.





Image

The inquisitors move up to the bottom of the slope and keep their formation locked into a tight shieldwall.





Image

Meanwhile the archers move forward and keep their bows at the ready.





Image

Jy'udi approaches the blazing campfire and lifts her greathammer to the heavens.





Image

"Spirits of fire, heed my call!
Help us burn these wretched halls!"






Image

Feat successful! She summons a fire matriarch. It's stats are:

Skill: d6
Move: 5"
Armor: 4
Extras: Flying, Living Field Hazard.




Frostborne (bann154)


Image

The disrupted archers pick themselves back up and fire at the paladins below, the tower bowmen join their fire as well.





Image

Succeeding in picking off two of the elves below.





Image

The other bowmen aren't as lucky, they fire at the onslaught below but their damage isn't enough to do much harm.





Image

Frostbornian warriors flood from the palisade wall, fearlessly piling up on the Esduin soldiers. They manage to down one of the elves, but the rest are locked in close combat.





Image

Meanwhile, the remainder of the swordsmen below retaliate and bring down a paladin.





Image

Another paladin is ganged up on and slain.




Secret Faction 1 (Robot Monkey)

Image

Behind Frostborne's line of defense, a small band of Norsemen led by Torsten the Bear have arrived, heeding the call of battle.





Image

"And just before the Yule celebrations!" Torsten growls, "make haste brothers! Let's send these fancy-pantsy fruit-flavored cowards to hell!"





Secret Faction 2 (RedRover)


Image

Meanwhile by the icy coast a party of Draklon looters gather, led by none other than Kaptain Lucer himself. "Shite," the kaptain says, "and I thought the battle would be over by now."






Image

"Sir, it looks like it's just started," observed one of the rangers.

"You don't say? Well I guess we can't just stand around, not while Esduin knows we're here anyway."






Image

Turn Three

Rolled for initiative as per usual, order of players are:

Draklon (RedRover)
Esduin (TheVengefulOne)
Norsemen (Robot Monkey)
Frostborne (bann1540)





Draklon (RedRover)


Image

"Alright lads, lets keep our heads down and hopefully those elves will do most of the work for us!" Lucer's words are surprisingly inspirational enough to grant his band an extra 1d6 worth of move inches for the turn.





Image

The heavy-armored knights, the Wardens, unequip their flails in favor of their pointier spears.






Image

The Wardens line up shield by shield, while the rangers take up position behind them. Lucer follows behind, protected by two minfigs worth of meatshields. As they move within range, the rangers take some potshots at the enemy watchtower but to no affect.






Esduin (TheVengefulOne)


Image

Jy'udi twirls her greathammer around tries to stroke it like a string instrument.





Image

But the feat falls upon deaf and unappreciative ears.

"Even their taste in music is bad!" Jeers one of the Norsemen.






Image

The fire matriarch moves toward the nearest Frostborne warrior and lights him on fire. The swordsman is no match for it, except for the fact that he literally got turned into a match.






Image

The melee below continues on, three paladins miraculously failing to do damage on this particular swordsman, even while ganging up.





Image

Another few paladins try the same strategy on another swordsman.





Image

But he doesn't take too kindly to it and crits his counterattack roll, the results are blindingly obvious.






Image

The uphill battle continues on as a paladin smites another swordsman, neither side seeming to gain much ground as of yet.





Image

The Inquisitors separate, four of them breaking off and moving toward the Norsemen while the rest are beginning to forge ahead onto the hill.





Image





Image

The archers move up, the group nearest the hill taking aim and firing into the heart of the battle.





Image

And claiming their first kill.






The Norse (Robot Monkey)


Image

"Victory or Brikhall!" Bellows Torsten the Bear, his warriors answer him and cry in unison, inspired for the turn.





Image

Archers take aim-





Image

-And crit their damage input so hard, the decapitated head of an elf is enough to disrupt the other behind him.





Image

The berserkers charge into the fray. Unfortunately they get so wildly excited swinging their weapons that they forget to dish out any real damage.






Frostborne (bann154)

Image

The Esduin archers soon find out the hardway that Frostborne soldiers are not the only ones in range of deadly biting arrows.






Image

The close combat carries on, resulting in the slaying of another paladin.



Image

"Enough of this, we can't give them any more ground!" Yigmire shouts, their situation looking more and more dire despite the heavy casualties Esduin had suffered thus far.





Image

The Frostbornian Officer dives into the fray and slices through a startled paladin. "Push them back!" Yigmire shouts. "And isn't someone supposed to light the beacon tower?"






Image




Image




Image


~End Turn Three~'

True, Frostborne is slaughtering the paladins, but lets not forget about the heavier units still to come. Also, maybe if those lazy Draklon would shift their arses into gear...

Also I guess the Norse are probably diehard Amon Amarth fans, shoulda figured as much.

Turn Four

Order of players for this turned rolled out as such:

Esduin (TheVengefulOne)
The Norse (Robot Monkey)
Draklon (RedRover)
Frostborne (bann154)





Esduin (TheVengefulOne)

Image

The disrupted paladin from last turn gets back to his feet and despite the resulting move penalty he is able to get in range enough for an attack.





Image

And slices right through a Frostborne swordsman's neck.





Image

Another elf fatally wounds a berserker, ramming his blade into the warrior's gut.





Image

The berserker uses his last few breaths to unleash his rage, dishing out one more counterattack. The attack doesn't amount to anything however.





Image

And he succumbs to his wound, lying in a pool of his own blood.





Image

Yet another paladin runs a swordsman through.





Image

His body slinks against the side of the hill, lifeless eyes staring off into the distance.





Image

The grinding melee at the hill continues on as another Frostbornian falls. Esduin seems to be fighting harder than ever.





Image

The Inquisitors that had been heading toward the Norsemen suddenly change their minds and charge up the hill, running down a Frosbornian officer.





Image

Rangers move up and take aim, their arrows pointed up a single target.





Image

And after several critical successes, overwhelm Yigmire's armor roll. "Hhhurrrkk!"






Image

The fire matriarch moves toward the Norsemen and tries to light the last berserker on fire. Her attack fizzles and doesn't do anything.





Image

The other group of rangers move up and take aim with their eyes on the hill.





Image

And manage to overwhelmingly pierce an icebreaker's armor.





Image

Kaptain Jy'udi approaches the decapitated head of one of her paladins. "How distasteful. How we've taken this many casualties would displease Her Majesty greatly. However..."





Image

"-Even in death you will be of use to her!" Jy'udi smacks the head like a croquet ball.





Image

The projectile-turned head hurtles toward the Norsemens frontlines.





Image

Headshot!





Image

Torsten is stunned for the turn, probably suffering a pretty bad headache.


I will never stop making shitty puns.





The Norse (Robot Monkey)

Image

Norse archers rain down furious arrowfire on the Esduin soldiers, felling one of them.





Image

The remaining berserker takes revenge for his fallen brother.





Image

And partially lights himself on fire for standing too close to the fire matriarch for too long. The damage isn't enough to kill him though.





Draklon (RedRover)

Image

The Wardens throw their spears up at the Frostborne bowmen





Image

Surprisngly one scores a direct hit, while the other misses.





Image

The other bowman is downed by arrowfire from the Draklon rangers.





Image

Kaptain Lucer stops and pulls out some sand from his pocket for some reason. "I knew this would come in handy. Sand is a staple to any seasoned warrior's arsenal!"





Image

"Eat this, you filthy barbarians!" He throws it directly at the watchtower above.





Image

Defying gravity, the wad of sand splatters into the tower, blinding the bowmen temporarily and messing up their skill rolls for the turn. "Gaachh! What sorcery is this?!" One of the bowmen shouts.





Frostborne (bann1540)

Image

These two bowmen fire at the Esduin paladins below, hoping they can be of more use than their comrades in the watchtower who, for some reason, couldn't hit a thing.





Image

Success! A single paladin is turned into an expensive-looking pincushion.





Image

The heavy-hitters meet up and deal out some serious damage to one another, but so far a single Inquisitor is crushed by warhammers.





Image

Spearbearers form up a final line of defense. They exchange no words nor looks of discontent, their steely gazes are set on the golden tides before them.




Image






Image






Image

~End Turn~

:omnom:

Some AoE damage would come in handy here!

The fire matriarch moves toward the nearest Frostborne warrior and lights him on fire. The swordsman is no match for it, except for the fact that he literally got turned into a match.


Those puns.  :lol:

I also like the inclusion of Draklon Raiders. In my storyline they do the dirty work for elves, guess it's only right they switched roles here. ;)
