This scenario involved both players attacking with the person getting the largest numbers of units over the halfway line at the end of the game the winner. Hordes are worth 3 points, Regiments 2 points and Troops 1 point.
|Long-shot of the table
My plan was a simple one. I would refuse on my left where all the missile troops were deployed and hope to sneak them over the halfway line later. I would attack on my right with my heavy-hitting beasts and finally grind forward in the centre with my large hordes in the hopes of securing victory.
|Ratmen horde and beaats
|Ratmen and Lizardmen hordes
|Refused left flank with missile troops
|The Kins left flank with most of the heavy hitters
|The Kin's centre
|The Kin's refused right
In the initial Kin attack the Brutes were able to hold-off and then destroy the archers, but the Ratman ogre was destroyed by the Kin's cavalry, who then rallied back.
|Ratmen Brutes maul the archers
|Ratmen centre attacks
|Lizardmen trundle forward
|Ratmen shock troops are swept aside
Over on the Ratmen's left they found themselves facing waves of Kin shock troops, who with their greater move could manoeuvre into position and launch a series of attacks against the Brutes / supporting Horde. Although they hung-on gamely they caused little damage and were broken after a round of combat.
|Brutes stand ready
|Oh dear - heavily out numbered
|Ratmen get exterminated
In KoW the battles are supposed to last 6 turns and then the victor is adjudicated. We lost count so stopped after about 2 hours play. So its possible we played rather more than 6 turns.
