the Haunted Wilds (Sign-up)

Postby Bragallot » Wed Sep 04, 2013 2:28 pm

Just as Queen Lara was preparing to attack the Falx lands, more and more reports of aggressive invaders calling themselves the Draklon Raiders were coming in. The Queen split the Roaming Knights from her army and they seemed to get the situation under control, but mere days after Queen Lara departed more and larger groups of raiders started showing up.

Image

Aware of how vulnerable the Kingdom was with so much of its armies gone, Knight-Marshal Cales, now governor of the region that was formerly the Empire of Westeron (consisting of most of the Eastern borderlands of the Kingdom), gathered an army with the intention of putting an end to these raiders before their numbers became too great. The Bulls, though thinned out from years of war, were unwilling to appear weak in front of their former enemy, so they scraped together what remained of their forces and joined him on the battlefield when he called on them. The Draklon raiders evaded the joint force for the first few weeks, but now, on the edge of the Haunted Wilds, finally turned to fight.

Image

The Draklon army is only a rearguard. From the looks of it, it seems they are intent on slowing down their enemies long enough so the rest of their army can escape rather than achieve total victory.

Image

The right flank is held by an infantry squad led by a slayer and two dragon-mounted slayers.

Image

Crossbowmen, a champion and chariots hold the center, while a group of infantry, a couple of halberdiers and two more slayers form up the left flank. They've taken up positions in the forest and hope to keep them.

Image

They are faced directly with the Bull legion, where Marshal Marnix leads a phalanx formation that spans the entire line from the front, aided by his heavies and a general.

Image

The Draklon raiders hastily prepared some small obstacles, but it's nothing the Bulls can't handle, on the contrary.

Image

On the right flank an elite squad, armed with firehammers, is also coming in.

Image

The center has a catapult with two operators and the Bull banner perched atop it, flanked by crossbowmen. A minotaur has also recently joined the army.

Image

On the right flank we also find the icons and a crazed shaman. These no longer worship the Bull God, but they have found the strength within themselves to retain control over their magic.

Image

From the West Cales' troops are coming in. He's recently been expanding his forces greatly, stating that it is necessary now that Queen Lara has taken so many forces on a crusade. A river blocks half of his forces' advance, but it's shallow enough to get across without help (it does take full movement to cross).

Image

The right flank has a spear squad and a sword squad, both with an officer. There's also two Sakers with operators, a captain and Cales himself, proudly flying a new banner to represent his army.

Image

The bulk of the force is approaching North of the river. There's a ribault with an operator, three squads of Urban Guards (spears, swords, crossbows), two bodyguards and two elite knights.

Okay, I'll be the Drakhirri then. Since turn order is decided by the order of PM's and I'm obviously not going to send myself PM's, they'll go 3d on the 1st round, 2nd on the 2nd round and 1st on the 3d round, and so on like Bonn-o-Tron.

Voytek is with the army that's marching on Phineus' Black Citadel. Um, that battle will probably need a little more preparation :) The fig itself is in the battle but I switched out his helmet and right now it serves as a regular crossbowman. But rest assured, Voytek will return 8)
