There will be a battle this Sunday - and so as Dark Elf commander, I sorted out my box of Dark Elves, first time unpacked for many years!


All the figs (I think)

So Sundays battle has come and gone - reports a bit late as I spent most of the week digging a trench in the back yard.. So, in the same breath, not a lot has happened on War & Sorcery this week

However, digressions aside - on to the battle - what a lot of fun!!! :mrgreen:

We drew hidden deployment, my objective was 'Take and Hold' Daves was 'Test of Strength' (remember neither side knows the others objective)

My plan was simple, stand off from the centre and shoot what ever advanced and then charge it and kill it - Hold the centre. Forces on the flanks would provide cover

So when forces were revealed I discovered Dad massed on flank, (my right) and had a mobile force on the left as well. He had a decent showing in the centre as well, so I was feeling nervous.

In the opening turns I reorganised to cover my flank, and then watched my lizard rider knights flee the table - my most expensive formation by far.

Things were not looking good, I had a degree of control in the centre but the flanks were looking very vulnerable

My shooting had some effect though and Magic played a part, and then in the centre the Sisters of Murder met the Dwarf Berserkers and things got bloody... quickly....

The Sisters won out, but only just, however then, by charging the marines and Sisters into the flank of Daves generals unit, we got a good result

and it was pretty much game over - except Dave had also completed his objective - battle a draw with bragging rights to me... :lol:

I look forward to the next battle, once I have tidied up some of the magic and finished a few more lists (and updated the existing ones), the whole lot will be online
