Waves of Krimson Gold - Finale

Image

There is a strange stillness in the air, as if everything had temporarily froze in time.





Image

The disciplined soldiers of Esduin remain still as they set their glares ahead.





Image

The Frostborne soldiers at the outpost were almost the opposite. An officer by the name of Yigmire leads a band of frantic warriors toward the coast. "Move! Keep them at bay!"




Image

Heavy-armored soldiers form up behind him, ready to defend the keep with their lives.





Image

A band of swordsmen gather and hurry forward to join the imminent fray.





Image

A figure stirs in Esduin's midst.





Image

A graceful figure hardly burdened by her heavy armor strides forward, gleaming golden hammer grasped in her hands.





Image

And in a single solid movement, she smashes it into a rocky outcropping, turning the top half into gravel. Her nearby soldiers don't even flinch as some of the shrapnel pings off their armor.





Image

"Heathens!" Kaptain Jy'udi cries, her voice carrying a terrible authority about it, magicked to lift itself to the ears of the Frostborne guards across the way. “With such pathetic defenses from the so-called mighty Frostborne Realm, victory will soon be ours!” She shouted and the elves slammed their shields on the ground in unison. The simultaneous booming thud was Frostborne's doom being sealed.






Image

“Now go! Let them feel the blades of Esduin!”

Just making sure, I do not have control over the guys still on the boat, right?

They're mostly for static scenery at this point. Although, any enemy units who get to close may be in for one nasty surprise.  :mystery:

Thank you, Brag!






Turn One


Frostborne rolled initiative this turn (evens against odds).


Frostborne (bann154)

Image

Bowmen string their weapons and aim for the nearest formation of Esduin soldiers. "Release!" One of them yells and a small volley rains down on the paladins.





Image

The paladins raise their shields and shrug off the damage.





Image

"Make way!" Bellows one of the Icebreakers. The swordsmen move to the side as their heavy-armored comrades make toward the battle.





Image

The spear-bearers follow behind, ready to fill the entrance of the palisade wall with their brutish weaponry.





South Esduin (TheVengefulOne)



Image

Kaptain Jy'udi jumps off her rocky perch and reels back her greathammer, about to give it a mighty swing.




Image

At the height of her swing, a great wave of wind rushes toward Frostborne's defensive position. The gust is strong and looks as if it could do more than simply throw off the aim of a few archers.





Image

Kritikal Success!





Image

Not only does it blast through part of the palisade wall, but it also disrupts two of the bowmen.

"This blows," one of them says as he is buried by part of the wall.





Image

The rest of Esduin moves up. These paladins march toward the Frostborne swordsmen opposite of them, breaking up only temporarily to skirt safely past the fire.





Image

The other formation of paladins charge toward the hill and almost get in range to run down the swordsmen, their blades raised up and ready to gore anyone who gets too close.





Image

The inquisitors trudge up behind them, forming a nigh-impenetrable shield wall.





Image

The archers on the shorelines all string their bows and ready their response fire.





Image

The tide rises. On the top of the hill, some of the Frostborne warriors exchanged dark glances. Never had they faced a foe such as this before.





Image

Turn 1 Overwatch.





Send orders for Turn 2!

The red guys are looking strong, but that's a lot of figs to kill in just 4 turns, particularly when you're relying on slow moving formations. Are you using any of the ideas I posted in this battle? I notice you mentioned a shield wall. ;)

As I mentioned earlier, I plan on trying out the armor idea and the shield wall as well. Both sound interesting to me.

Just waiting on Bann the mann to tell me his battle plann.

Bann is uh... on vacation in... Russia and he told me to tell you to just have all his troops surrender. Don't bother PMing him to check or anything cause he doesn't have internet up there.

Wait a second, didn't he actually say he was on vacation on some other forum battle going on right now?
