Blood in the Sand (Round 2)

Postby Bragallot » Tue Mar 06, 2012 10:43 am

Adlersflügel - npc'd by me.

Image

Crossbowmen advanced and rained down crossbow bolts, killing another tribesman in the front ranks.

Image

The waterbinder tried to humidify the air around the enemy crossbowmen to the point they wouldn't be able to fire.

Image

It failed and the crossbowmen's crossbows were disabled for a round instead! This lead to some angry reactions.

Image

Lord Grahel succesfully told the crew at which angle to fire the mangonel.

Image

Thus it hit, killing another phalanx warrior. Grahel's bow on the other hand was ineffective.

Image

Jaiko tried to spear the remaining men simultaneously but failed, as a result missing his charge entirely.

Image

The Elite Knights then came in and finished the job however.

Image

This gave the rest of the cavalry the space to charge. They killed two dudes and knocked the rest of the squad over, disrupting them and breaking their cohesion.

Image

Voytek angrily lined up a perfect shot, shooting one of the Elites in the face. His second attack clattered off the enemy's armour.

Image

The ballistas repositioned and fired, missing the enemy cavalry.

Image

The phalanx closed formation with the elite part of the army. Behind them their general chucked a lance into one of the dragons (-1 HP).

Image

They moved the catapult as well as they could, but it quickly got stuck in the sand.

Crimson Knights (I messed up the turn order a little, but it was inconsequential)

Image

Goeting ordered his men to charge. The knights had to go around the bend, the fire lancers could go straight at their enemies. The phalanx grimly extended their halberds...

Image

... and stopped the charge! The horses were all killed, stopping the charge dead in its hooves.

Image

"Reorganize!" the commander shouted as he and his men scrambled to their feet.

Image

Summoning their fireswords, they attacked together...

Image

... but the Bulls fought hard and killed one of the firelancers instead.

Image

The ranged forses advanced, trying to get in range.

Image

Goeting used his dark power to attract nearby creatures.

Image

Wild jackals appeared, and they didn't look too friendly! (failed feat)

White Dragon Knights

Image

The dragons flew up, the damaged one surviving the berserkers' attack. They breathed fire on the Icons, but Icons are tough bastards.

Image

The dragons then got the hell out of there.

Image

Something was coming out of the ground! :shock:

Image

It was the Earth Dragon, and his mere presence knocked men about as he climbed out of the sand, shaking the last bits off as he prepared to attack.

Image

With an effective Earth Blast, he took out an engineer, while the rider failed to kill the berserker.

Image

The general was knocked down and got trapped under the tail during this maneuver.

Image

The mighty beast snapped at Marnix, barely missing him. Careful now, Marnix has a reputation as a Monster Slayer.

Image

Unphased, he struck the beast on the head hard in response (-1 HP).

Image

The dragon master wanted to blast the axe squad, but his attack spell fizzled before him.

Image

Daerion threw an apple,

Image

which his horse proceeded to chase after, leading him straight to his enemies.

"NO!"

Image

"Um, I have pears too if you like. Oranges maybe?"

Image

The fight went rather disastrous for the pikemen: they lost three of their number and took down only one halberdier as a result. They focused on the titan, but their damage equaled his armour.

Image

Daerion quickly fled the scene and went around, cutting at the back of the titan's legs.

Image

The huge warrior cried out in anger and fell down (-1 HP and -2" movement).

Bull elite

Image

Marnix sprinted underneath the Dragon, who followed his movements closely...

Image

He dropped his mace and raised the Bull Flag, facing the beast with it.

Image

The Earth Dragon would have none of that and bit it out of his hands, snapping the banner in two.

Image

But it was all a diversion for the berserker to attack! He somehow missed his first strike, but the second one was true (-1 HP).

Image

The Dragon retaliated, and the Berserker escaped the deadly jaws only narrowly.

Image

The Icons focused their magic, filling the air with spiritual power...

Image

... which surged through Marnix, twisting his features into that of a minotaur and causing a new flag to appear. Marnix now has the Banner Carrier and Ritual Magic abilities (one Icon failed, the rolls didn't merit more).

Image

The bloodthirsty Elites, lacking one man who had been knocked over by the dragon, charged over dead man and horse alike to get at their opponents.

Image

The initial clash killed two WDK's and 4 Bull Warriors. When the dragon knights retaliated using their saved action, the Elite somehow survived.

Image

The still dazed axeman picked himself up and joined his buddy.

Image

When the heavies got up, the dragon rider was the nearest target, and they ended his life with glee.

Image

The last Elite Knights were struck down by an aimed volley.

Golden Lions

Image

Stanis summoned and aura of fear around him, causing nearby enemies to lose 1 armour point.

Image

The cavalry then bore down on the Dragon swordsmen.

Image

Two were slain.

Image

Melisander fireballed a third.

Image

The remaining halberdiers converged on the pikesquad (meanwhile joined by the Drakhirri) together with the musketeers. At this point the dragon mage had crit-succeeded in upping the squad's armour. It saved all but the Drakhirri.

Image

Their counters killed two of the four remaining halberdiers.

Image

Finally the Titan limped to his feet and heroically crushed the officer underneath his heel.

Oh well played Dragon Knights and who ever controls the Earth Dragon. Nicely done! 8)

Well done too, to the two Bull Phalanx for holding, these are tough troops.

Hoping for mighty deeds from Marnataur now. :D

Yep, that was me! Used last turn's heroic feat to bury the dragon under the sand, and have it pop up later (now) ready to wreck some shit! I'm just sad I didn't get to snap Marnix up in my jaws and drag him below...

Get ready for a hell of a third turn! Those Phalanx squads won't hold for long!
