The right flank was being overrun, for when one Phalanx missed his attack...
... another quickly finished the job.
Chief: "This is madness!"
Of the Phalanx fighting Marnix one made a horrendous damage roll which would've wiped the floor with him if he hadn't had his magic shield (which blocks 2d6 damage), which, after 2 crits, decreased the damage to the point it equalized with his armour! The others failed to hurt the general further.
One of the many strange rolls this turn.
The swordsmen on the other side held on better...
Black crossbowmen began to swarm towards the purple mages, gathering where they could pass through the fighting hordes.
Not everyone got in range, but plenty of crossbows were still aimed at the Purple Mages...
Though they made difficult targets on their swift brooms and Bull crossbowmen mostly always fail some crossbowmen managed to hit. The black-haired mage critfailed every defence roll and died, the other narrowly managed to protect himself - staves also function as shields against projectiles.
Valarius: "You there! Why are you standing still?! Carry out the Boar God's divine punishment!"
"You're right! What was I thinking? I must kill!"
Xalen - Silverdream
The skeletons charged in...
The icon was knocked away and disrupted, but took no damage. The phalanx was less fortunate.
Silent as death, Xalen flew into the battle.
He'd have run over the Bulls, but the feat failed and the horse crashed into the ground, sending him flying off. His stab at the chieftain narrowly missed.
Xalen took some falling damage, but it didn't even scratch him.
"Someone is going to pay
Purple Mages - Ross_Varn
The headmaster ran off towards the fight and attempted to heal the failing dead mage.
Critical succes! The purple mage came to life again with full HP! However as they attempted to multicast the black-haired mage again set his face on fire, this time however losing no HP to the damage.
The two active icons tried to interrupt their casting, but their attempt was too weak to stop the brown-haired mage, who got a damn fine roll, completely.
This icon even knocked himself out (disrupted).
Though not quite the inferno the mages had attempted to cast, the smaller fireball still dealt a lot of damage, blasting away two crossbowmen.
Loyalists - solvess
Swordsmen fought as well as they could, but their handweapons failed to dent the phalanx.
The main body of the army advanced, and then... what?
That's right, they were trying to chuck their mates into the fray. They didn't get very good rolls and one even crit failed, then I got a '6' on the fall damage... worst Brikwars death I've ever seen yet.
One got close enough to rid Marnix of one of his opponents, however, though he didn't manage to kill him. Marnix then would've charged down his opponents on route to the Bullbeast, but tripped over a corpse and didn't get to attack. There was a lot of fail this round. At least he didn't take damage while retreating.
Tired of all the fail around him, the general swiftly beheaded one of his foes.
Loyalists - 3
Rebels - 7

Deadline for next orders: friday evening, though if I have all orders by thursday midday I might
already be able to do the round then, though it would be tight.
