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...

Re: Return to Caerfen- Orcs vs Elves

To prevent the dragons near to the bridge focusing their fire to protect the artillery, I sent in both units of orc flyers to attack the closest dragon unit. I had to commit units in column to attack the bolt shooters- including one of my combined archer/ spearmen units, not great but needs must… DS...

Re: Return to Caerfen- Orcs vs Elves

The next turn saw both armies continue their advance. Caerfen was engulfed in a tide of greenskins. I hoped the ancient buildings would be effective in nullifying the worst of the elven missile threat. The orc centre pushed past the road, whilst on the ridge I stopped short of descending into the de...

Re: Return to Caerfen- Orcs vs Elves

DSCF3210.JPG The stage was set, let battle commence. The first turn saw the orcs advance en masse, the cavalry holding pace with the infantry. The right flank reached the outskirts of Caerfen, looking towards the elven bolt shooters. The mountain orcs on the left flank slogged through the heavy woo...

Return to Caerfen- Orcs vs Elves

Return to Caerfen Background This battle, between the High Elves and Orcs, was a rematch of an earlier battle. The first Battle of Caerfen saw an orc host (of dubious quality) routed by the Elven defenders. This ignominious defeat was a stain upon the orcs reputation as raiders without equal, and so...

Re: Vittoria

Super pictures of a great looking game. The smaller 6mm (I presume) scale works really well and I love the massive number of figures you can field. The level of painting detail of the miniatures and banners is stunning and it must be quite a spectacle to see it in it's full glory. Many thanks for po...

Re: HHM Romano British V Norman

Enjoyed that. Many thanks for posting. It did make me smile when, even after formulating a cunning plan between the Romano British commanders, one decided to go maverick and launch his own plan- probably with the bold statement of "What can possibly go wrong?" Sounded like a lucky win at the end- al...

Re: Teutonic Order v WOTR Tudor

Really enjoyed, many thanks for posting. When seeing the initial army lists, I thought the Tudor longbows would prove too much for the Teutonic army. The battle showed the greater mobility of the Teuton missile troops proved very effective at forcing the longbows to shrink their flanks, and severely...
