This battle was fought a couple of days ago in preparation for a larger battle we are planning. So i grabbed a few minifigs, some dice and the 2005 rulebook and went to my friend's place to check out his collection. Turns out he has a huge box full of pirate and old (=no peaches) Star Wars stuff as well as a suitcase full of 80ies Lego. This time we settled on a small skirmish to get more familir with the rules. Ill preparation means we only had a mobile phone to take pictures, so sorry about the quality. The amount of bloodshed was decent though.
The story you ask? Well, there is this unbearably handsome do-gooder hero who really deserved a lesson or so my orks decided:
The battlefield. A couple of baseplates and some medieval ruins.
The good guys. Their hero is mounted.
My orks. The one with the bat helmet is the hero.
Yours truly taking some notes.
A view towards my forces.

My hero appears behind enemy lines!
The following exchange of blows causes the first casualities.
Good hero and pals kill some orks on the other side.
Brooding on what to do next...
Things did not look well on my right flank.
At least my hero was on a killing spree finishing off more Robin Hood look-a-likes.
