Week 4

Let the Lubbers Feed the Fish

The temperature is dropping and the winds are backing into the east. The giant beasties in the oceans around the island are becoming more hungry and bold – it won't be long before supplying the island becomes a problem unless we can nab a few passing convoys!

That blasted Davy Joneser, Tyrant Ikrim Elfeater, has been over-active again – something to do with the massive amount of Troll-flesh he and his misshapen cronies consumed no doubt. He fought the Scurvy Dog Tyrant Jayne and The Blue Sun Tribe Ogres for control of Ossomunte, practically walking in and setting up his flag on the town's tallest building.

Living up to his name he faced Lord Lokay's Wood Elves of the Naval Alliance in Caragio and though he bested the tree-huggers he didn't manage to "liberate" the town from the Naval Alliance. The deformed fiend raged and bellowed at the walls but the Alliance held on by their fingernails. Most of the population fears that the Tyrant will return next week to finish the job.

The Troll-gutted Ogre bounced back to battle Scurvy Dog Slann Ankha-Uax of The Temple Constellations of Bob at Dead Man's Point though. The bizarre buccaneer was thrown back from the point and Elfeater has added several dozen extra abundantly stocked gibbets to the already macabre peninsular.



Gardrock and the The Sartosa Harbour Independent Trading Syndicate got confined to port in Dogfish Cove with rudder problems and Adm'rul Kurgan Grimjaw and The Ironfang Orc Pirate Fleet spent the week lurking at sea, hoping a treasure ship or a merchant full of supplies would pass their way: Neither spent any time on shore or in battle.

The Blue Sun Tribe Ogres also brawled with Lord Lokay's Wood Elves for possession of Skull Point but neither side could gain the upper hand. The Dogs and The Alliance now both have a tenuous toe-hold there.

Haul-hard lads – it'll be a while till the issue is settled an' there still be time to get purchase on our little haven. Don't quit the fight, don't admit defeat and don't put yer trust in off-shore banking!

Yo-ho!



Davy Jones' Crew held The Fortress of the Pirate King, Sartosa City, the Volcanic Lake, the Cave of the Damned, the Howling Marsh, The Old Penitentiary, Vermunte and Beffardo and captured Ossomunte and Dead Man's Point.
The Scurvy Dogs held Fort Senelite and The Bay of Wrecks.
The Corsairs held Caprio.
The Naval Alliance held Caragio (just!), Ragil and the Osso Hills.
Roba is still contested by The Scurvy Dogs, The Naval Alliance and The Corsairs.
Skull Point is contested by The Scurvy Dogs and The Naval Alliance.

Week 4 Results in Vercuso

Clan Scuttle (Joe) =6

Gordo Ram's-Eye and his Halfling Catering Corps (Phil) =7
(1 play point; 4 points for ranking 2nd with 78; 1 fluff point; 1 adjustment point due to Tim providing incorrect warband rating figures!)

Will L'Ecarlat and the Merrie Men of Chalons (Phil) =6
(2 play points; 3 point for ranking 3rd with 77; 1 adjustment point as above)

Syphylis’s Dark Intrusion (Tim) =0
(1 play point; 2 points for ranking 4th with 71; -3 adjustment points as above!)

The Longhorns (Johnny) =1
(1 point for ranking 5th with 55)

Kommodore Deffgit and the Ogresuns (Saul) = 3
(3 play points; 0 points for ranking 6th with 38 )

Gallant Geraint the Knight Errant (John) =1

(0 points for ranking 9th with 16)

Captain Wyatt Varcolai and The Carcass Crew (Mike) =0
(0 points for ranking 10th with aggregate of -10)

Twilight Feast (Matt) - yet to play

So the factions scores are:

this week:
Naval Alliance = 15
Scurvy Dogs = 9
Davey Jones' Crew = 1
The Corsairs = 0

cumulative:
Naval Alliance = 42 (46%)
Scurvy Dogs = 32 (35%)
Davey Jones' Crew = 16 (18%)
The Corsairs = 1 (1%)

If you're interested in stats you might like to know that the Scurvy Dog have scored 35% of the points every week throughout the first half of the Vercuso campaign, with the only real movement of power being between the Naval Alliance and Davey Jonesers. The Corsairs appear to be on vacation in Tilea.

Gordo Ram's-Eye and his Halfling Catering Corps

zelophahad wrote:
‘Look what I found!’ Bill’s piercingly high-pitched voice emanated from the overturned cart: ‘It’s a map of Vercuso!’

Three rats scurried to safety as Bill and Ted emerged from the cart with unidentified foodstuff smeared all over their faces. Ted was greedily eyeing Bill’s find, acutely aware it was his birthday and that Bill had yet to get him a present. ‘Give it to me my –’

‘Pressures of leadership require that all fudging maps be handed to me!’ declared Gordo Ram’s-Eye and snatched the map from Bill. ‘Ah, this should come in handy…’

Jammy Ollie the Chef peered over Gordo’s shoulder. ‘Don’t you think it looks suspiciously new and shiny, boss? My Aunt Dahlia always said –’

But Aunt Dahlia’s words of wisdom were lost in the ear-splitting cacophony of the herd of squealing pigs which suddenly appeared, rampaging down the street driven with Leon the farmer in hot pursuit. The swine careened into the halflings knocking them off their feet and the map fell to the ground.

‘Beggin’ yer pardon boss!’ piped Leon as he chased after his porcine charges.

‘You fudging maniac!’ shouted Gordo from the mud. He picked up the map which was now covered in dirt and pig trotter prints. A corner had ripped off it, and the ink appeared to have smudged a bit in the wet – it certainly didn’t look suspiciously new and shiny any more.

Gordo examined it carefully and his eyes lit up. ‘Eh lads, this fudging map says there’s a secret tunnel leading to a secret Magic Pantry! And the fudging entrance should be somewhere in… that direction.’ He pointed down an alleyway. All of the halflings turned to look down the passage, any misgivings about the map’s provenance instantly dispelled by the prospect of a Magic Pantry.

‘My Aunt Dahlia always said something about a Magic Pantry which never emptied,’ whispered Jammy Ollie. The awe-struck halflings drooled in silence.

‘Right lads,’ said Gordo, ‘let’s find that tunnel entrance – top priority!’

Stomachs rumbling in anticipation, the Catering Corps headed off down the alleyway. Back in the mud where the trampling pigs had ripped it off, lay a corner of the map. A tiny icon was drawn on it – three lines arranged in a triangle, overlaying each other. Muddy water seeped through the parchment, dissolving the ink. Within moments, all that was left of the symbol was an unintelligible, blurry smudge.

Kommodore Deffgit and The Ogresuns

WarbossKurgan wrote:


17th October, the year eight.

Hauled on a Lee Shore

Arrows hissed across the ruined streets, from out of the shadows a dozen or more cunningly hidden Bretonnian Outlaws rushed towards the Kabin Grotz. The Kommodore shouted in anger as two barbed darts hit the back of his thigh with a sickening double thud. The bearded Orc slumped to the ground clutching his leg shouting "Zoggin' gitz, I'll string yer all up by the futtock shrouds, ya no-good landlubbers an' picaroons!"



The Outlaws advanced in three groups, the larger ones from the north (with Will L’Écarlate) and south of the pirates, the smaller one, consisting of just Jean Le Petit and Le Moine Tuc, from the east. Both the Larboard and Starboard Watch were too far away from their commanders to come quickly to assist.



Salty Ogbad, distracted by searching the shattered upper floor of the Wall Tavern, took a few pot-shots out of the upstairs windows with his Musketoon but he scored no hits on the Outlaws due north. Two Kabin Grotz were knocked-out in the first rush - one was killed outright by Will L’Écarlate (or possibly a henchman standing near-by!) and the other was floored by Le Moine Tuc as the Outlaws burst out of their hiding places.





Shaman Wyrdtoof bounded out of cover under the Wall Tavern's archway and started blasting away with his deafening pyrotechnical magics, and Zzapped one of the Outlaws. The weight of Bretonnian numbers forced him to duck back as arrows whipped passed him; far too close for comfort.

Hearing the shouts of his shipmates, Barnacle Nog turned up far ahead of the rest of the crew. He charged at Jean Le Petit with cutlasses flashing in the sun but Le Moine Tuc leapt in front of him and maced him: Nog went down hard. Tuc & Jean tied him up and carted him off as a prisoner.

Another Goblin was shot down at very, very long range and Salty ordered the Ogresuns to fall back, even before the Larboard and Starboard Watches arrived.

~ ~ ~

As the Kommodore looked at his leg, the words "Old Battle Wound" came to mind. The arrows had embedded themselves deep into his thigh muscle; one was even bone-deep. Wyrdtoof had pulled them both out and bound him up but he was sure the Bretonnians used metal arrow-heads – neither missile the Shaman removed had them now.

He took another draft of grog and looked about the inn. The Ogresuns looked sullen and morose… and short handed.

"Were's Nog?" said the Kommodore.

"Oh, he's over th…" began Ogbad but his voice tailed off as he looked round and failed to locate the big first mate. The rest of the crew looked blank.

"Zoggitt!" said Defgit.

Will L'Écarlate and the Merrie Men of Chalons

zelophahad wrote:
‘Nice one men,’ grinned Will L’Écarlate wolfishly as Le Moine Tuc and Jean Le Petit threw the firmly-bound orc pirate at his feet.

Will lifted the greenskin’s chin up with his sword point. ‘What is your name, Scurvy Dog?’

The pirate’s red eyes flashed with surly rage but he said nothing.

Will crouched down and looked the prisoner square in the face. ‘Put it this way,’ he spat, ‘if your name’s Fishgutz I’m going to make you wish you’d never been spawned. If it’s not, I’m going to send you back to your crew in exchange for said Fishgutz. And if you don’t give me a name, I’m going to kill you.’

The orc’s brow furrowed as he weighed up the options: Pretend to be Fishgutz and suffer a lingering death; keep quiet and suffer a quick death; or betray Fishgutz and go free. It really wasn’t a very difficult decision, but it still took him a while.

‘Yarrrr!’ he snarled at last, ‘I be Barnacle Nog, and if yer want Fishgutz yer can ‘ave him.’

‘Do you think he’s lying, men?’ asked Will.

‘I don’t believe so, boss,’ replied the cleric, ‘and he doesn’t look like Robin’s killer to me.’

‘Nor to me,’ agreed Jean, ‘I’d know that scumbag anywhere, and he ain’t him.’

‘Right then, put this greenskin in irons and under guard,’ smiled Will L’Écarlate, ‘I have a plan to avenge the death of Robin Le Capot.’

‘Ahem.’ coughed Le héraut Gui, ‘I’m not sure Sir Jean Balluet would approve of you pursuing vendettas…’ His voice trailed into nothing as twelve stony faces glared at him in silence.

Vercuso Herald: 19th October

Dastardly Druchii Dream up Devilish Deception!

The apparent rise of the Davey Jonesers in Vercuso was revealed this week to be an elaborate scam dreamt up by Syphylis’s Dark Intrusion! The evil minions of the forces of darkness are less of a threat than reports suggested. But the Vercuso Herald encourages its readers not to become complacent – the dreaded Longhorns are said to be at large again.

Fighting raged yet again in the streets of our once-beautiful city last week, marking the mysterious return to action of Komodore Deafgit (no-longer-deceased) and his villanous Ogresuns. The orc pirates did battle with the aforementioned Dark Elves and also, on two separate occasions, with the Merrie Men of Chalons! But despite their enthusiasm for fighting, their influence on the city remains curtailed by the Naval Alliance.

Elsewhere, Clan Scuttle was pinned down by a pincer movement of Ludwig the Coward's Righteous Templars and Gordo Ram's-Eye and his Halfling Catering Corps. The warbands were all braving the predations of Slippery Jack as they searched for Bloodfane shards in the waters of the harbour. The Templars won the day, yet Clan Scuttle still remains the dominant power in Vercuso.

Carp A Diem - The Halibuteer's Tail

WarbossKurgan wrote:
20th October, the year eight.

Another Day, Another Sea Monster
The Halibuteers unsuccessfully ambushed the Halfling Catering Corp.

~ ~ ~

"Hehe – they look lost to me Kap'n" said Makrul "they've been wondering around and arguing for over an hour now."

"Well, I suppose we can't let an opportunity like that pass us by with sayin' hullo, now can we?" chuckled Kap'n Hadduk.

Murlok looked worried but said nothing – he had a very bad feeling today but he couldn't put his finger on the problem. It wasn't just the Halflings however; something big was lurking in the deep waters of the harbour.





The Kap'n rushed forwards to get the Halfling's leaders, taking Dagon with him, partly as a living shield and partly to keep the Troll in line for once.





The rest of the Halibuteers rushed up ladders inside the Cod and Cutlass inn, from where Ted the Halfling fled down a ladder outside and charged Murlok, along with a drove of pigs. Kod and Makrul crossed the rickety gangplanks into the Wall Tavern to get at the rest of the Halflings, Makrul nimbly (but inaccurately) fired his crossbow on the way over.









Kap'n Hadduk ducked and weaved as a rain of bow-fire fell from above as he herded the Troll forward. Two arrows embedded themselves in his fish-head, a third caught him in the neck and he fell heavily. He twitched for a moment and lay still. Dagon the Troll carried on running (possibly still following the last order he heard from Hadduk) and in moments was upon and enemy. He raised his huge foot and squished the foul-mouthed Halfling Elder, Gordo Ram's-Eye. The great oaf then sucked on his fist and dribbled while more Pigs and the Chef headed his way.











After a long drawn-out fight with the pigs and Halfling Murlok knocked Ted down and stamped on him, but the Shaman was immediately bitten by a pig (badly enough to make him miss the next battle) and he went down.

A huge roar reverberated across the quayside and everyone froze – a vast sea creature was making its presence in the harbour known. The Halibuteers looked at one another for a moment; the Halflings did the same.

Both the warbands ran for their lives in opposite directions.

21st October, the year eight.

Battered Fish(men)

A bell on a marker-buoy mournfully tolled somewhere out in the mists that hung over the waters of the harbour; its slow and steady peal echoing the lethargic action of the sea.

Makrul looked around him at the small group of fish-suited Orcs. Since he took over leadership of the shore party (now Hadduk was gone and Murlok was temporarily out of action) they had been looking to him for their course to success.







He led them into Cheapside to try to capture the waterfront warehouses for the Scurvy Dogs: The warehouses were still stuffed full of naval supplies – sail cloth, spars, cordage, pitch, cannonballs and even some black powder. Any and all of this might help the pirates fend off the invading Corsairs and Naval Alliance and maybe overthrow the occupying legions of Dave Jones's Crew. At worst the stores would enable them to flee the island and survive long enough at sea to reach the many small islands along the north coast of Araby…









Unfortunately the Longhorns were already in Cheapside; they resented the Fishmen encroaching on their territory and were prepared to deal with the interlopers harshly.















The twisted Beastmen gave the Pirate Fishmen a proper thrashing. Only Dagon the Troll survived unhurt (and he suffered many wounds during the fight but his regenerative abilities meant they all knitted back together).

The rest of the Halibuteers slunk out of Vercuso with their tails between their legs, vowing to return soon to reap their revenge.

Those left behind...

Nethrag wrote:
Mulgar was well pleased with the last nights undertakings. He had consorted with the spirit guides and they had revealed to him that a tome of magic could e found in one of the ruined buildings near the centre of vercuso. Eager to gain what knoledge it contained for himself he had persuaded the tribes cheiftan....what was his name again?... that it would be worth thier while. As the longhorns dispersed amongst the buildings a loud waaaagh erupted from the opposite end of the town square. As they drew nearer he was surprised he hadn't smelt them before hearing them, they stank of sea water and roting fish flesh, which for some reason they had all adorned themselves with. No matter, whatever superstitions had caused them to act such would be no defence against the true children of chaos.
Drimar saw two of the fishmen out on the left flank bickering amongst themselves, one was just about to shimmy up the ladder out of reach so he let a gor take a charge in front of him, then sped past into the one which had been left behind skewering him through the chest. In the centre a mighty ruck broke out, however the fishmen were largely outnumbered and were brought down.

There was a mighty crash as something came straight through a nearby wall, bellowing its rage. As the smoke cleared the shape resolved into a gigantic troll, again adorned in this strage fishy way. His handler momentarily lost control of him and was pushed out infront of the beast. Seizing their chance he was mobbed by razgnok and one of the lesser gor and knocked out cold. Without the handlers prodding stick the troll ambled forwards, saliva dribling from its mouth as unfocused eyes searched the area as it tried to remember what it was doing here. Razgnok, thought about charging in and then perhaps wisely let some of the leser gor charge in and risk their necks. As the troll was beaten back it turned to run and the longhorns let out a long victory howl to the rising moon.

Searching through the abandoned buildings Malgar had come across what the spirits had told him of, the cheiftan...what's his name....was happy enough with the rest of the loot found in the ruins so paid no attention to a musty old book. Malgar felt more powerful already after only having studied it for one night, he was sure by the next time he was called into battle he would have a new trick or two.

---------------------------------------------------------------------

Victory to the longhorns against Sauls fishmen orcs - I'm pretty sure he's retiring them after quite a few deaths and not being able to afford to feed the troll and it wandering off.

The shaman gained a skill and so has learnt a new spell, the rest of the warband has grown considerably again after selling 7 shards (and I've still got one left!) Have bought a cookbook, and am now at my maximum size of 16 (15 + 1 for cookbook) after hiring some more henchmen. Have also hired a "pitfighter" for which I'm going to be using an albino gor with a tentacle mutation to represent the spiked gauntlet thing. Should be able to pay him with the spare wyrdstone piece even if I get battered next game.

New warband rating is 205! (That was a BIG jump!)

Week 5

Hell's Bells

Storms rage out to sea as the weather worsens. Reports of shipping destroyed by the great sea beasties have dropped off but I suspect that is due to witnesses being eaten, rather than the number of attacks dropping: It's certain that fewer ships have come into our ports than we expected.

The mountain town of Caragio was the centre of a vicious struggle this week: General Jeridian Neskijn and the Nordland Expeditionary Force fought Captain Zarmo and The Cartel of Uncommon Miscreants to a standstill but then the Nordlanders suffered a Solid Defeat at the hands of Tyrant Ikrim Elfeater's Chaos Trolls. The gigantic mutants almost captured the town from the Naval Alliance in the process but when The Cartel of Uncommon Miscreants once more pushed into the other side of the town they were beaten by Prince Robinet Puissant's Troupeau à Ailes Royal and the Naval Alliance secured their possession of the beleaguered settlement for now. Smoke pours from the eastern quarter of Caragio as many buildings burn. If it goes on like this in the weeks to come Caragio will be nought but ashes.



The Blue Sun Tribe Ogres stormed Skull Point, snatching the previously quite corner of the island from the clutches of a host of Orcs and Goblins in the thrall of Davy Jones's Crew. Nothing is known of the Greenskined militia though – they appear to have been shipped in recently.

The Scurvy Khornate Pirates of Kor'thar the Merciful clashed with the Daemonic minions of Davy Jones that were summoned to defend Beffardo, but the Piratical mortals were beaten back and Beffardo remains in the Jonesers' hands.



Davy Jones' Crew held The Fortress of the Pirate King, Sartosa City, the Howling Marsh, Ossomunte, The Old Penitentiary, The Cave of the Damned, Beffardo, Vermunte, the Volcanic Lake and Dead Man's Point.
The Scurvy Dogs held Fort Senelite and The Bay of Wrecks and captured Skull Point.
The Corsairs held Caprio.
The Naval Alliance held Caragio, Ragil and the Osso Hills.
Roba is still contested by The Scurvy Dogs, The Naval Alliance and The Corsairs.

Standing there among the graves stood Syphylis. He was wearing a white mask with his hood over his head. But what caught the group’s attention was the blade he was holding, it was dripping with thick red blood...



ive been busy” Syphylis scoured

doing what?” asked Elaraith bravely

Syphylis didn’t answer, it seemed what he had been doing was not so dark and evel that not even he would admit to it.

Around the camp fire that night no one spoke. With the shame that Hadrain had accomplished in the last battle and with syphylis dark work at mist everyone had lost their sence of enjoyment.

Much darker things are at play here.

Ikrim elfeater strikes out alone

Nethrag wrote:
The slaves had finally finished unloading the armies wargear and Lord Kadus stood on a hill overlooking Roba. Ikrim had indicated that he was heading towards Caragio so he wasn't needed there. He had studied the maps of the island before deciding where he could put his troops to most use. Roba had seen plenty of fighting this season but so far none had secure the town. He was here to remedy that fact.

As he approached the walls of the town the skies darkened and lightning crackled across the sky, as the rain started to pour down heavily armoured and cloaked figures emerged from the woods barring their way. The air was heavy with magic and Lord Kadus wished he had mroe than his sisters pitiful talents on hand, still, a good commander made do with what he had available. If he could not counter the enemy sorcery with his own he would just have to counter them with a lance to the chest.

-----------------------------------------------------------------

First game was against pete and his new chaos warriors. Lv4 + 3 x Lv2's meant the Lv1 scroll caddy was sorely tested. However after the first couple of turns the two hydra charged into the chaos warriors with the three level 2's and by directing attacks killed them all. This helped enourmously with only the Lv4 still flying about on his disc. They hydras held up the warriors for long enough to get the cold one knights into their flank and the shooting of the dark riders managed to get rid of the enemy marauders/hounds.

Expedition #417 [File Closed]

The End

Blau's head popped from his neck like a champagne cork. His limp body exploded in a haze of gore as his bestial killer laid hungrily into him. A mass of horns and teeth and fur were clawing at Ludwig the Coward. He fended off one mutated hand with his hammer, kicked another back with his boot. A stretched face came at him, he pushed it back. A strangled cry wheezed from the pack: Siegfried. His throat was open, and as he desperately plugged the wound with his palm a notched axe fell into his skull.

“This is for Gummy!” piped a high pitched voice. Ludwig turned to see the small halfling, Bulger Bluefoot, waving a steak knife at a towering beast. He deftly thrust it outward, only for it to be caught by his opponent and rammed back into his eye socket.

Something squelched beneath the old priest's feet. The old clerk Weiss had been brought down next to him just a moment ago and his intestines had splashed from his ruined gut, so Ludwig chose not to look down.

Schwarz was in chains, being dragged away in the direction of the pits.

“Death to the enemies of righteousness. Death to the foes of Sigmar. Death to those in the Darkness”. The mad old man, Rodrik, was flailing wildly, staunchly defending the mangled corpse of his dead friend Redrik.

A hairy shape launched itself from the bridge above and Ludwig braced himself. But it was no beast, it was Grun, the hulking torturer. He landed on a raised blade and rolled away clutching his leg. It was every man for himself now.

More tainted beastmen were closing on the priest. He raised his hammers, hoping there were still men left to hear him.

“For Sigmar. To the death. For the Empire. To the death. For all that is righteous. To the...”.

A spiked maul cracked him in the head and he collapsed into blackness.

Da Kronicles of Adm'rul Kurgan Grimjaw, Book 5

WarbossKurgan wrote:








27th October, the year eight. The Osso Hills.

Run Aground

"Flyin' 'orses Kap'n" said Grognog as the well-built first mate shaded his eyes against the sun. "I ain't seen none of them nor a year or two, but they ain't ever good news."

Rukbadruk looked towards the valley's western end at the colourful array of pennants, livery and banners: The Troupeau à Ailes Royal of Prince Robinet Puissant.







"There's summink else with wings an' all," continued the first mate "looks like the Chumbucket's Boss in on one o'them Hippo-wassnames."

Kap'n Rukbadruk was about to make a snide comment about Grognog's over-free tongue when the ship's gun on the far right flank spoke; a deep rolling echo boomed across the vale and a cannonball screamed overhead. A great cheer went up from the Orc lines as the ball smashed the Bretonnian Lord from his Hippogriff mount, sending a shower of coloured fabric, plate-armour components and lance fragments raining down on the Knights beside him.

Grognog was weeping with laughter and struggling to breathe for several minutes.

Adm'rul Kurgan gave the order and the Orc Pirates marched forwards in an unexpectedly ordered battle-line, singing their unsophisticated sea-shanties as they went.

~ ~ ~





To begin with the Pirate artillery was stingingly accurate; the Orc Pirates cheered fiercely as volley after volley hit home among the Knights and only the warding of the Lady of the Lake saved many of them from certain death.

On the other hand the Orc magic was ineffective, once an irresistible force Gork's Warpath had trodden on a Lance of Knights then the Black Orcs (and Gork slunk away slightly embarrassed), nothing else that Shaman Murlok attempted created more than a few green sparks.

Growling ferociously the Orcs received several charges from Lances of Knights (that were already slightly depleted by gunfire and Gork's Warpath) and held their ground for the most part.



A Bretonnian Paladin shouted a declaration of his own heroic status and charged at Broadside the Giant, who was felled by a single wound inflicted by the Paladin; his fall killed a single Knight.

The Hippogriff shrugged off another "direct" cannonball hit (the shot wasn't aimed at it but scattered onto it again) with the protection of the Lady's warding. Once again the gun crew would later claim they were aiming for the beast!





The Halibuteers charged the Knights Errant beat them in a vicious scrap and chased them from the field of battle but two units of archers took revenge: they concentrated their fire on the Halibuteers and whittled them down to just 5 Black Orcs.



Just as the Pirates looked like they were winning, The Rotmoons were broken and run down (after Kap'n Mogrum fumbled a downward slash of his cutlass, getting it stuck in a bit of driftwood, half buried in the scrubby ground!), Bretonnian light cavalry and Pegasus Knights killed all the cannon crew and then (crucially) Adm'rul Kurgan's crew were charged by two Lances of Knights and the rider-free Hippogriff. The Orcs broke, the Knights chased and flattened them, and the outcome of the battle was decided.





Of the Pirates, only Kap'n Rukbadruk and one unit of Orc Pirates facing the south and one depleted unit of Crab-Spider Riders remained. Rukbadruk sounded the retreat and the Scurvy Dogs fled from the Osso Hills with their tails between their legs.

Me at the start of the game> Me at the critical moment > Orc Shaman sleeping Should have been me at the critical moment >

I forgot to call the WAAAGH! at the start of turn 2. That would have stopped him charging me!

He also did a couple of naughty things - he twice charged a character out of a unit *and* charged a different target with the unit. Plus he was taking ward saves on the Hippogriff after it lost its rider.
silent

It was a really funny game though and we were laughing most of the time (we also had two or three people watching who were laughing and joking along with us), so I'm not fussed by the loss.
lol!

Gordo Ram's-Eye and his Halfling Catering Corps

zelophahad wrote:
Gordo Ram’s Eye tentatively opened his eyes. His head was pounding. He couldn’t quite remember what had happened, but he had a horrible feeling it had had something to do with overconfidence and a troll.

He peered at the capering halflings before him as they gradually came into focus. They were carrying one grinning hobbit around on their shoulders and shouting, ‘Fisherman Bob! Fisherman Bob!’

‘What the fudge is going on?’ he groaned.

‘Bob shot Kapp’n Hadduck dead, boss!’ piped Bill, ‘And you got beaten up by a troll.’

Gordo glared at the diminutive youth.

‘A very big troll!’ interjected Ted, ‘And you nearly had him!’

‘Anyway, the fishmen appear to have disappeared,’ said Faygin Bolger, ‘although to be honest (as I always am of course), I think those beastmen might have had more to do with it than us.’

‘Is that right? Well maybe we need to learn those cattle a lesson!’ grunted Gordo. He was rapidly feeling better and turned to Jammy Ollie the Chef: ‘What’s for fudging dinner anyway?’
