Round 2

Imperials - Scratch

Image

The spearmen advance, clearing some space by knocking down the trees.

Image

They then advance into the wilds, presenting the Drakhirri with a spearwall.

Image

The crossbowmen advance and fire, missing wildly...

Image

One misses so badly his shot gets stuck in a phalanx's armour. "Hey, watch your aim you blind asshole!"

Image

The Imperials keep advancing, the cavalry lining up alongside Cales as the spear squad crosses the river and the sword squad splits up, one group preparing to cross the river while the other stays behind to guard the cannons.

Image

Cales flips his visor shut. "Okay men, fire the special ammo!"

Unfortunately the feat fails and the cannons wildly misfire...

Image

... into the back of the Bull army. The damage is massive, shredding three crossbowmen and killing the minotaur before it even got to do anything :( The force of the explosion sends the surviving crossbowmen sprawling forward.

Image

Alarmed, the phalanx turns to face the Imperial army as if they were one man. "What on earth was that all about?!"

Image

"I'm very sorry. Gunpowder just isn't as reliable as we want it to be. I seem to recall losing some of my men to an explosion caused by your dear captain Voytek during the siege of Starkeep myself. Now turn your pikes away from my army and continue attacking the Drakhirri immediately, or I will have to punish you."

Drakhirri - NPC'd

Image

The slayer outmaneuvers the general and rips off his head with the edge of his pike.

Image

On the Drakhirri's left flank, the Bull elites stand fast against their enemy's attacks, one slayer getting engulfed in flame from a fire hammer.

Image

Another slayer is made to realize how foolish it is to take a Bull phalanx formation on your own by yourself and is cut to shreds, but it buys the champion time to draw back his lance, and throw it...

Image

Mumbles' celery dance is abruptly, and violently ended.

Bulls - Warhead

Image

The crossbowmen loose another volley...

Image

The Bulls lock shields but one shot strikes straight through a shield, into a phalanx's face, killing him instantly.

Image

The champion scoops up the fallen slayer's pike and prepares to fight off the warriors piling up in front of him as he calls for his men to stand their ground.

Image

The crossbowmen reorganize and fire a massed volley...

Image

The chariots and their riders were just out of range, but arrows slash into the dogs pulling them, killing them all and grounding the chariots.

Image

The catapult fires... and if you look closely, you can already see it.

Image

One crossbowman gets his head crushed.

Image

The icons start eating the celery, well, two of them do...

Image

A fight breaks out between the feral creatures as the third demands equal rights.

Image

Luckily for the Bulls it doesn't distract them enough to keep them from enhancing the elites' charge.

Image

Momentarily benefiting from enormous strength, the elites surge forward, those who manage to make contact with the enemy easily knocking down their opponents.

Image

Four Drakhirri are left defenseless. The elites show no mercy and crush three of them under their hammers.

Image

Marnix and his heavies fall in behind them, Marnix spurning his men on to greater deeds. "Finish the job! Roll over them!"

Image

His feat convinces two more elites to attack again, one of them caving in a swordsman's chest with his hammer.

Image

This heavy kinda got stuck behind the phalanx and crossbow formation. He'll make it eventually.

Image

First, the champion's horse is overkilled and cut into bloody chunks.

Image

Then the phalanx engage in combat with him, taking him down to 2 HP. The champion doesn't manage to retaliate, but at least he's keeping the formation from advancing.

Image

Behind him the rightmost phalanx moves in, clashing with the Drakhirri swordsmen.

Image

The centre left phalanx lines up with their brothers on the left flank and try to avenge their general...

Image

The slayer is chopped down, but he manages to take one of his assailants with him.

Image

The left flank doesn't make a move, but, wary of the imperials' motives, keep their shields locked together and their pikes extended.
