BEASTMEN VS SKAVEN & CHAOS 2000pts

Been away for a while and testing out various board designs and army lists, but recently my friend and I decided to have a 2000pt battle, a true test of my army.

Robs Skaven & Chaos army

Chieftain half squeak.

Warp-lock lv 2 wizard (skitter-leap & warp lightening).

Stormvermin (Banner of the under empire).

Slaves x19.

Clanrats x18.

Clanrats x24.

Ratling gun.

Rat ogres x3.

Jezzails x5.

Doomwheel.

Vardak the grim & Exalted hero.

Sorceress malagon (Pandemonium).

Hounds x10.

Mauraders x20.

Warriors of chaos x12.

Chaos knight x5.

Chaos spawn.

Oz’s Beastmen army.

Khazrak the one eye.

Great bray shaman.

Malagor the dark omen.

Gorehoof and Centigor.

Gors x15 (2 units).

Tuskgor chariot x2.

Ungor raiders x10.

Bestigors x10 (Man-bane standard & Captain had many limbed fiend special rule).

Minotaur & Bloodkine x3.

Jabberslythe.

Ghorgon.

This was the first time using my shamans…I was putting my faith in magic saving the day lol.

We decided that a “Last man standing” battle would take too long, so we decided to make it a 6 turn game.

I won the roll to set up first, not sure if it was strategic or I just wanted Khazrak to look the most imposing…so I stuck him on the bridge.

Skaven turn 1

Rob got off to a good start, his Ratling gun killed 8 of my Gors straight away and his Jezzels killed 1 Minotaur and wounded another.

He attempted to cast but luckily I dispelled.

Beastmen turn 1

My Jabberslythe only managed to kill 1 Slave and my Ungors fail in there attempt to destroy the Ratling gun.

Malagor attempted to cast The caress of laniph on the doomwheel…but failed.pic4

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

S&C turn 2

The Ratling gun unleashes a massive 9 shots at the Jabberslyth killing it, along with 5 of his own slaves, but he didn’t complain strangely lol.

Jezzails knock a wound off a Minotaur.

Exhalted hero takes a single wound off the Ghorgon and the Doomwheel smashes into the Chariot.

My Ghorgon picks up and swallows the Chaos champion whole…gaining lost wounds, hurrah.

Ghorgon wipes out the remaining Chaos Warriors.

S&C turn 5

Warhounds run off the board.

B turn 6

Chariot wipes out the remaning Stormvermin.

Ghorgon picks up and swallows Rat Ogre whole, gaining all lost wounds again.

Khazrak kills last 3 Chaos Knights with a little help from a savage beast of horros spell.

Chaos Spawn takes a wound off my Shaman.

B turn 6

Bestigors run off the board.

Shaman is killed in combat by Chaos Spawn.

Khazrak takes a wound off Chaos Spawn.

A truly enjoyable game for both of us. I calculated the final victory points and I was surprised at how close it was.

Rob = 1733 pts

Oz = 1616 pts

A narrow win for Robs Skaven and Chaos army.

As ever we shook hands and decided on our character of the battle award.

I went for the legend that is Khazrak the one eye. Wherever he goes, death is his ally.

 

 

 

pic11

Rob decided that his ratling gun was worthy of the best of the game award.

 

 

 

 

 

I hope you enjoyed my battle report. Thanks for reading.
