The crossbows miss, but the Ranger's musket is deadly accurate, pulverizing the head of the Dark Elf officer.

The axe slices through the head of one elf than severs the leg off of another. The one legged elf will only move half from now on. (decapitation not captured in the image sorry
[FEAT CRITICCALY SUCCESFUL
The pirates move to some cover and fire on the elves, but to no avail. Dark Elves

The rest of the army advances, the elven rangers release a volley on the pirates.
One of the pirates takes an arrow to the gut.
The Elvish mage rushes forward with a potion...
throwing it at the pirates, disrupting one of them. That pirates skills will be -1 for the rest of the game. Dark Elf General:
"Archers, fire another volley! Lets turn their butts into pin cushions!"
The elves just stare at their general, wondering if he is alright. They have never heard him use the word "Butt" in combat before.
Two redcoats rush up the hill, firing their muskets. They accomplish nothing. Dwarves

"What the dice are you doing, get back here! Dark Elves never flee from battle!"Swordsman:
"We...it was a tactical retreat sir!"
The last pirate runs at the archers, driven insane by seeing his son killed in front of him. He swings his staff, wounding one elf, and slitting the throat of another.
The other pirate fires his flintlock pistol, but it just explodes in his hands. Dark Elves
The Cavalry charge, ripping a bandit in half and killing a knight.
The cannon is reloaded, and fires again.
The cannon ball rips through the knights, killing three. The Battle Cleric is extremely lucky.
They may be archers, but the elven rangers are also deadly with a blade, utilising their bows as melee weapons.
Well, at least most Dark elf rangers are. This one is an exception, he just trips over the old mans foot.
The second gets the better of the old man, finishing him.
The third ranger slices the back of the benifate, BT
liquid going everywhere.

[FEAT SOME-WHAT SUCCESFUL
The Argonians gather all their footmen and charge the dark elves horses.(Charging is a big thing in the version of BrikWars I play.)
The horses are spooked witless, the riders having no control whatsoever.
The High Elves line up and fire their flintlocks at the Elven Rangers.
However, the High Elven army seems to have been equipped with very dodgy flintlock pistols, all of them but the officer crit fail!
The benifate channels his power...
Vaporizing the mage!
Starkrowe leaps at the dwarf hero, attempting to knock him into to the other dwarves, but loses balance on the jump.

Bringing his mighty axe down on the dark elves, making a shockwave that disrupts two of the rangers.TURN 3Darl Elves
The general fires his flintlock point blank in the face of a knight...
The bullet ripping through his brain and finding a nice resting place in the shoulder of another knight.
He then brutally dispatches the wounding knight...
then using his free melee action, smack a captain in the face with the handle of his flintlock, disrupting him!
What a kickass general!
The same can't be said for his army though. All critical failures, quite literally.
These two drop their arrows.
Hoppy and his counterpart arm themselves but fail to do any harm.
These two morons just fire into the air, again.
The cannon makes a big boom, but misses by a mile.
The cavalry on the other hand, are not complete failures. They make quick work of the High elves, wounding two and killing one. Bandits

And kicking the other one of the hill.
Both out cold!
The war chief gets up, still a little dazed.
He picks up the dwarf hero, much to the dwarves frustration.

The little man picks himself back up and attacks the nearest target: The pirate.
He just misses and falls off the hill.
The dwarves regroup and attack the War Cheif, but he blocks all the hits with his one arm.
They then use their bonus action to run away! Argonians
A captain jabs his spear into the generals neck...
and like a bottle opener prizing off a lid from a beer bottle removes the generals head!
Two Argonians kill Hoppy and the other Dark elf swordsman,while a third just stands there, looking dumb.
The high elves fire their flintlocks point blank at the horse riders.
They all miss, and one crit fails, blowing her other arm off. She is now dead. They really need to spend more money on weapons, but fancy uniforms.
The two remaining elves attempt to hack the riders off their mounts, but the couldnt get close enough with their tiny swords.
The battle cleric charges the startled ranger.
He just falls on his face. The ranger erupts with laughter.
Which is cut short as the benifate decapitates him.
The archers fire on the dwarves again
, and again
they fail miserably. The decide to do the logical thing and run away!
LS leaps in front of the dwarves, yelling a battle cry. Lord Starkrowe:
"I will cut your little heads from your little shoulders very slowly so that you will feel it! Give up now while you have the chance!"
The dwarves are truly petrified: One runs off the battlefield, one surrenders and the other runs towards the Dark Elves.
The last dwarf slams the blunt end of his war pick into the side of the war chiefs face, knocking his helmet off, and felling the chief.
The dwarf hero swings his axe at the pirate...
Cutting him into little itty bitty pieces. BANDITS ELIMINATED Argonians
The High elves combine fire on the nearest dark elf. *sighs*
The knights finish off their remaining foes, the two captains both ending a useless redcoat. The berzerkers fail to overcome the Dwarf hero's armour though,

And slays a berzerker. Overwatch...
The battle was a ARGONIAN VICTORY!
