Re: Romano British v Norman (2 games)

Sounds like great games! The playing area looks relatively compact, so I'm not surprised it was hectic. I also agree on the Romano British being a fun army. I have been playing some very entertaining games pitting the Romano British fantasy army list against the dwarves. Every game has been close, v...

Re: H&HM Norman v Saxon (Round 2)

Thanks for that. I will look to use them in our games here. I must say the explanation was very well phrased and comprehensive. Could this be an excerpt from the updated and soon to be (hopefully) published Hordes and Heroes rules?
Fingers crossed :D

Re: Return to Caerfen- Orcs vs Elves

A spell you say? Sounds like wizardry and magic to me. Quick call the Spanish Inquisition.
Nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition! Amongst our weaponry there are such things as... etc, etc

Re: Return to Caerfen- Orcs vs Elves

This was confirmed in Mark’s round, as his forces swept all before them, with the orcs broken and fleeing the field. DSCF3287.JPG DSCF3288.JPG DSCF3289.JPG What a great game! Congratulations to Mark for the victory- the prosperous future of Caerfen is at last assured. What went wrong? Mark helpfully...

Re: Return to Caerfen- Orcs vs Elves

DSCF3278.JPG The battle was becoming a slaughter for both armies, but at last I had lured Mark into committing his elite units and watched with barely concealed satisfaction as they advanced unsupported towards my still dangerous forces. His Treemen and giants were soon to be caught in my trap (cue...

Re: Return to Caerfen- Orcs vs Elves

The combat phase saw the attack on the left flank become embroiled in melee, units hacking at each other on the slopes of the defile, although a unit of wolf riders did disrupt and drive back a unit of spears. The centre and right flank saw more gains for the orcs as they continued to drive forward....

Re: Return to Caerfen- Orcs vs Elves

DSCF3248.JPG With units still committed to the attack, my turn opened with a quandary: To consolidate position and gather for a coordinated assault designed to target vulnerabilities in the elven line or hurl in ever greater numbers of frenzied greenskins to support the current attack.,, Well, orcs...

Re: Return to Caerfen- Orcs vs Elves

The combat phase saw the elven line pummelled. Both units of bolt shooters were crushed, a unit of elf archers guarding the bridge were trampled beneath orc chariots. The fighting on the ridge saw two units of elf archers halved in strength and forced to recoil disrupted. The only blight on the whol...
