[HH] The Battle of the West Emnet Plains - Turn 5

Post by Joshua » Tue Nov 02, 2021 10:32 pm

There was a slight mishap where I confused the Easterlings turn with that of the Uruk-hai. So, the Easterlings should have gone when the Uruk-hai did, and vise-versa.

Sir Marcus Duhanden and his Troops - Scribonius

Image
Andrew and Fritz lock shields and advance, with Sir Marcus right behind them. The Uruk-hai Officer fires in response, and the arrow bounces harmlessly off of Fritz's shield.

Image
Sir Marcus then strides up to the Uruk-hai officer...

Image
And bashes him into the boulder! -1HP

Geoff and Stan both fire at the nearest armored Uruk-hai, but neither shot manages to hurt him.

Easterlings - Gorvoslov

Image
The last crossbowman tries to push Muradin off of the Oliphant,

Image
But ends up slipping on some blood and falling to the ground. He survives the fall, however.

Image
After failing multiple times, the Easterlings finally manage to overwhelm the lone halberdier in the ruins.

Knights of the Blue Lion - Gorvoslov

Image
Horrible Horrace and his men move forward, with Horrace making it onto the ruins.

Horrible Horrace: "Yes! Now for my evil plan!"

Sadly, however, gunpowder has only recently been invented by none other than Wilhelm von Brag, let alone a remote detonator and radio signal, etc.

Image
Note: I rolled a heroic feat to see if Muradin could successfully control the Oliphant, because it is right in the way. He passed, so he moved it toward the Undead's side of the field a little bit.

Bull Knights - SirZaphod

Image
The Bulls withdrew from combat and skirted the Black Knight's flank, hoping to outmaneuver them.

Image
Cedric engages a knight, but neither of their attacks hits the mark.

Sir John Lannister - NPC

Image
Sir John moves up and swiftly beheads two skeletons.

Black Knights - NPC

Image
After several attempts, this skeleton is finally dispatched.

Image
The entire bulk of the army then withdraws and repositions itself a little further back.

Image
This knight also retreats onto the ledge.

Image
The heavy cavalry continues to charge, killing two skeletons and disrupting an archer and the knight that got smacked earlier.

Image
The White King beheads the Orc that murdered his horse.

Image
This swordsman runs over near some friendly units.

Undead - SirZaphod

Image
These guys get up from being disrupted by the cavalry charge last turn.

Image
They swiftly encircle the Black Knight's right flank and attack, but no one dies.

Image
The bulk of the Undead quickly advance and engage the Black Knights, but again, no casualties.

Image
As he rides by, the Grimm Reaper slices Sir John with his scythe. -1HP

Image
After failing to raise the Troll, the two necromancers march up with the army.

Image
The last remains of the Undead's left flank attack the charging heavy cavalry, but fail to inflict any damage.

Wilhelm von Bragallot - Bragallot

Image
Wilhelm grabs another smaller rocket, and strides back over to his launcher.

Image
He adjusts the angle before lighting it up!

Image
BA-BOOOOM!!!

Image
Missing his targets by a few inches, only one necromancer dies, as the other one and the Elite Undead are disrupted.

Image
The explosion does manage to freak out the Oliphant, who rears up and charges wildly.

Image
It ends up quite a ways away, with Muradin holding on just barely thanks to his axe.

Uruk-hai - Infinity (The Orcs have all died.)

Image
The two heavily armored Uruks engage with the two heroes, but fail to get through their defences.

Image
One ends up falling to a counter, however.

Image
The Officer fires his crossbow at Sir Marcus, but misses the shot.

Lillian Windstrider - Mr. President

Image

Lillian: "Hey! Hooded man! Catch!"

Image
After rolling a 10 on a d10, von Bragallot catches the vial perfectly.

Lillian: "Maybe you can use this stuff with your rockets!"

Wilhelm von Bragallot: "Zhank you very much!"

Image
Lillian then fires an arrow at the Grimm Reaper, wounding him. -1HP

Muradin Doomforge - NPC

Image
Muradin tries to climb back onto the Oliphant, but ends up falling on his back.

Image
Not discouraged, Muradin races forward and attacks a Knight of the Blue Lion.

Image
After rolling some massive overskill dice, Muradin makes mincemeat of the swordsman.

Sir Darius Wolfshelm - NPC

Image
Sir Darius, finding his previous foe dead, finds a new one, but fails to re-kill it.

Endgame

Image
Since SirZaphod hasn't given the Grimm Reaper one feat to do this entire game, I figured this is a good time. The Reaper starts chanting some mumbled gibberish,

Image
And one,

Image
Two,

Image
Three,

Image
Four intact corpses come back to life!

Image
Whoah! What's this?

Secret Faction Unlocked! The Protoss!

Image

Immortal: "I return to serve!"

It seems as though the Mysterious Yellow Thing is in fact a Protoss Carrier, and now a group of Protoss have warped down to the wrecked ship...

Image
It looks like that probe is retrieving something...

Image
Aha! It's a crystal of sorts.

Image
And it appears as though the Protoss are escorting the Probe... Hmm...

Ah, plot twist!

On a different note, I love how those chickens are just chilling out on the edge of the battlefield near where the Black Knights started while the world of Man hangs in the balance.

Thanks! I've made sure to include the black pig, goat, and starting with Convoy Raid, those chickens in every battle, as well as a few other animals.
