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).
Rat ogres x3.
Vardak the grim & Exalted hero.
Sorceress malagon (Pandemonium).
Warriors of chaos x12.
Chaos knight x5.
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.
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.
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.
Chariot kills 1 Stormvermin and my Ungors finally destroy the Ratling gun (“that’s for killing my Jabberslythe” I may have said haha).
My second Chariot fails to damage the Doomwheel.
Bestigors kills 3 Warhounds.
My Ghorgon picks up and swallows the Chaos champion whole…gaining lost wounds, hurrah.
Malagor wipes out Jezzels & 6 Stormvermin using the caress of laniph and the purple sun of xerus.
S&C turn 3
Warlock uses skitter-leap to get into combat with my Great Bray Shaman.
Half Squeak kills 3 Gors and Slaves were unsuccessful in combat failing to land a single blow.
Chaos knights kill Malagor…NNNOOOOOOOO!
B turn 3
Chariot kills 3 Stormvermin.
My Gors were unsuccessful and ran away…cowards.
Ungors kill 1 Clanrat and Centigors kill 3 Slaves causing the rest to run off the board.
Chariot was destroyed by Doomwheel once battle was resolved.
Bestigors kill 4 Stormvermin causing the rest to flee.
Gors only manage to kill 1 Chaos warrior and my Ghorgon kills another 2.
Minotaurs were killed in combat.
S&C turn 4
Robs Warlock was killed in combat by my Shaman.
Chaos warriors break, as do the Warhounds.
Rat ogres and Chaos spawn beat Bestigors in combat, causing them to flee.
B turn 4
My Shaman casts the curse of anraheir on the Chaos knights, meaning they have a -1 to hit penalty.
Chariot kills 1 Stormvermin.
Ungors fail in combat, and as they are running, they are chased down and killed (never really last long Ive noticed, anyone else find that?)
Centigors fail in combat and are killed by the Chaos Marauders.
Bestigors continue to run.
Gors were unsucessful in combat, but passed their leadership test and stayed put.
Ghorgon wipes out the remaining Chaos Warriors.
S&C turn 5
Chaos Spawn wipes out remaining Gors and Rat Ogres charge my Ghorgon, bringing it down to 1 wound.
Knights charge Khazrak and attempt to take his life…but he survived all 25 attacks, and in return he killed two knights.
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.
Bestigors continue to run.
S&C turn 6
Chariot is finally destroyed by the Clanrats.
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.
Ghorgon kills Rat Ogre and 2 Packmasters.
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.
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.
