    I remember my biggest regret in that Otto Hiln mission was always that I couldn't kill the fleeing Skaven assassin, no matter how hard I tried rushing it with the cavalry :(

    MISSION FOUR: PATROL (AMBUSH)

    [​IMG]

    Jarema spends too much time with Deitrich and he apparently catched some Jewism from him because he tries to save some money by not taking crossbows to this mission. How badly it will end in scale from Bad to Shadow of the Horned Rat? We shall see...

    [​IMG]

    Our march order. It doesn't really matter with such a small force.

    [​IMG]

    MEN! check your weapons, gather your coconuts and get on your horses, It's time to impale some cossacks kill some Skavens! REJOICE!

    [​IMG]

    Much rejoicing.

    YAY!

    [​IMG]

    Wołodyjowski, are your men ready?

    [​IMG]

    Yes sir!

    [​IMG]

    But are they rejoicing?

    [​IMG]

    Oh for fuck's sake...

    [​IMG]

    Yay!

    [​IMG]

    Allright, we can go.

    [​IMG]

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

    MEANWHILE IN PLOT COUNTRY:

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

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

    BACK WITH GRUDGEBRINGERS:

    [​IMG]

    Sir! there is something wrong!

    [​IMG]

    What?

    [​IMG]

    Loading screen suddenly appeared...

    [​IMG]

    AMBUSH!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    This is how situation looks like right now. Only one enemy regiment is visible but we already know that there's more of them for sure.

    [​IMG]

    Our battle plan. This is some serious Guderian shit like you never saw before.

    [​IMG]

    More skavens are coming, and our troops are getting confused.

    [​IMG]

    First enemy regiments gets near. Jarema decides to use tactics that never fails. HAMMER and the ANVIL. Oldest tactic in the world but it ALWAYS works.

    [​IMG]

    We can already see the panic in the eyes of pitiful skavens!

    [​IMG]

    And hear the lamentations of their women!

    Because hammer and the anvil NEVER FAILS!

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    ... Unless anvil ain't worth shit.

    [​IMG]

    RUN! FOR THE LOVE OF GOD! RUN FOR YOUR LIIIIIFEEEEEE!

    [​IMG]

    WOŁODYJOWSKI! COME BACK! OR I WILL FUCKING KILL YOU MYSELF, ZAJEBIE SKYRWYSYNA! SKURWEGO SYNA ZAPIERDOLE!

    [​IMG]

    SIR! you must do something fast, or we will soon be overwhelmed!

    [​IMG]

    God, bring me strenght!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    BOOOGUUUUROOODZIIIICAAAAAAAAA

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Sir! we've done it!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Hey, did we won?

    [​IMG]

    SHUT THE FUCK UP WOŁODYJOWSKI!

    [​IMG]

    Oh, come on. It was tactical retreat. Serious Guderian shit like you never saw before...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    In the next episode we shall continue our patrol!

    Heheh.. :thumbsup:

    I remember hacking this game way back. Beefed up a certain lone unit and tackled whole maps with only that person. Just wanted to see the finish, and I was too much of a weakling to do it the right way. :oops:

    MISSION FOUR: PATROL (AMBUSH 2)

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Well, that was close! let's get a move on before more skaven arrives!

    [​IMG]

    Yeah, that would suck if we got ambushed again...

    [​IMG]

    Shut the fuc...

    [​IMG]

    fak...

    [​IMG]

    It seems that we got surprised in narrow valley, this will make manuvering cavalry quite tricky. We start by getting infantry in defensive position. Then we send Jarema to scout ahead.

    [​IMG]

    We could squizze Jarema between enemy lines and attract attention of some skaven regiments. That would let infantry deal with only one enemy group at the time... but we are not manly enough to do this so we just shoot the fuckers with fiereball and hope for the best.

    [​IMG]

    After shooting fireball we quickly order cavalry to get into defensive position and attempt to flank skavens with infantry, because fuck logic.

    [​IMG]

    Skavens get the bait, but we now must quickly charge them with infantry and hope that it will break them, because if it won't, Wołodyjowski will get charged from behind by approaching enemy regiment. And he will surely rout. Useless fuck.

    [​IMG]

    Fortunately everything went accodring to a plan. Now we must re-group infantry and prepare them for another fight.

    [​IMG]

    Jarema finished chasing routing enemy and infantry is in position. Now we can concentrate on fresh skaven regiment.

    [​IMG]

    We can't charge yet. If we do, Jarema will be butt-raped by third skaven regiment. We must wait for them all to attack Wołodyjowski. Meanwhile we cast fireball for shits and giggles.

    [​IMG]

    They went straight for infantry! now we can attempt to flank them with cavalry.

    [​IMG]

    Jarema is sucessful at charging them from the back.

    [​IMG]

    Skavens are surrounded and they start fleeing.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Our losses are acceptable. We have to remember that we also lost some man in previous ambush.

    [​IMG]

    Count the corpses, remember that Ceridan Ilmarin promised us 20 crowns for each dead skaven!

    [​IMG]
    Sir, yes sir!

    MISSION FIVE: RESCUE ILMARIN (BRIEFING)

    TROOPS STATUS UPDATE:

    Their "stats" page, after reinforcements.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    ARMORY UPDATE:

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Patrol mission final debriefing:

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Well, we got paid but we are still quite poor. It costs us around 500 crowns to field all three regiments, and we soon should get more units. Good news are that after "human missions" we will work for dwarfs, and they pay very well. Bad news are, that missions from now on will get longer and harder. It may be problematic for me to make screenshots and play them reasonable well (I don't have any screenshots program here, I'm on win98). Two things may happen, I will start loosing missions badly*, and updates will be less frequent, or I will be unable to beat the mission while making screenshots at all. In this case I will have to continue this campaign on my winxp computer with FRAPS when I get home.

    *I actually lost one battle already. 2nd ambush in patrol mission, infantry got annihilated but I didn't upload it :troll:

    [​IMG]

    You are to pursue the Skaven raiding party and recapture Ceridan Ilmarin, my valued adviser. The only information I have is that they initially headed north towards the Black Mountains. You must try to reach the skaven before they disappear into their network of tunnels.
    If Ceridan Ilmarin is rescued escort him to my family's hiding place in the mountains. There you will be paid by my guard. I will send my family on to the hideout and will join you after I arrange defences for Wissenheim.


    [​IMG]

    We take everyone this time.

    [​IMG]

    Next episode we will attempt to rescue Ceridan Ilmarin. But that will be later because right now I'm going to play some Mechwarrior 2.

    MISSION FIVE: RESCUE CERIDAN ILMARIN (BATTLE)

    [​IMG]

    clip-clop clip-clop... patataj patataj...

    SUDDENLY:

    [​IMG]

    Roar!

    [​IMG]

    Wild man follows us my Lord. He demands to speak with you.

    [​IMG]

    I am Allor. I live in the mountains for many years. I watch the Skaven...they search for Warpstone. They want to harm the world. They have no respect. They spawn of Chaos...evil. Must be stopped. I watch them burn town. They find what they want and take him. Follow me to him. I have powers. I help you. I guide.

    [​IMG]

    Really? What is your fee?

    [​IMG]

    No pay. I work for earth. I not work for you.

    [​IMG]

    Our first wizard, of Amber sort. I don't know what amber wizards are about because I don't know shit about Warhammer world. But Allor will mostly be sniping monsters and slowing down enemy regiments.

    [​IMG]

    His stats.

    [​IMG]

    clip-clop clip-clop... patataj patataj...


    [​IMG]

    Allright man, Allor didn't decieved us, skavens are here and they have Ceridan Ilmarin. We must free him!

    [​IMG]

    Errr... Sir!?

    [​IMG]

    What is it Wołodyjowski?

    [​IMG]

    There is... there is...

    [​IMG]

    There is WHAT? Wołodyjowski?

    [​IMG]

    A RAT OGRE!

    TAM TAM TAM *dramatic music*

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    RAT OGRE!

    [​IMG]

    RAT OGRE!

    [​IMG]

    WUB WUB!

    [​IMG]

    I'll take care of him!

    [​IMG]

    Yeah... let Allor take care of him...

    [​IMG]

    Shut the fuck up Wołodyjowski.

    [​IMG]

    Battle overview. There is friendly regiment of dwarfs that will attack skavens and will ask us for help (and we won't help them). Also among skaven Clan rats we can see more dangerous enemies.

    [​IMG]

    Friendly dwarven fighters.

    [​IMG]

    Stormvermin. Very nasty buggers.

    [​IMG]

    Rat ogre. He's very fast and his charge almost always routes your regiments. But Allor can one-shot him with Hunting Spear.

    [​IMG]

    Our defence plan. If Allor will be able to kill rat ogre before he get's close, we should be fine. Fletcher will try to kill some Stormvermins from afar, and maybe even rout them. If borth Allor and Fletcher do their job right, this will be a cake-walk. If not, we are fucked.

    [​IMG]

    We press "start battle" button and dwarves immidiately asks for help. They are not getting any I'm afraid.

    [​IMG]

    Unfortunately clan rats joins rat ogre and together they march straigh at us. We cast "Curse of Andhaira" to slow them down, and order Fletcher to shoot them.

    [​IMG]

    We can't fight both rat ogre and clan rats!

    [​IMG]

    Shut the fu... He's right, Allor! do something!

    [​IMG]

    Slowdownimusdemratuuuss!

    [​IMG]

    Now it's the time to take care of rat ogre!

    [​IMG]

    KILL HIM ALLOR! KIIIILL HIIIIIM!

    [​IMG]

    Hunting Spear bounces off the rat ogre...

    [​IMG]

    CHAAAARGE!

    [​IMG]

    Mother of god...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Clan rats furious about loosing rat ogre charge wołodyjowski. Jarema rushes to assist (Wołodyjowski, not clan rats).

    [​IMG]

    Swift cavalry charge from behind quickly brakes them. And soon they are gone.

    [​IMG]

    But there is no time for celebrations. Ratmen horde is finished with the dwarves and now they all are coming our way.

    [​IMG]

    Jarema quickly rushes north to get attention of stormvermin.

    [​IMG]

    Meanwhile Wołodyjowski together with Fletcher takes care of clan rats.

    [​IMG]

    Jarema chased by stormvermin runs circles around trees while Fletchers shoots retarted rats.

    [​IMG]

    Finally stormvermin decides that their "strategy" isn't working and charge fletcher.

    [​IMG]

    Fletcher makes short work of remaning rats even before cavalry get's near enough to assist.

    [​IMG]

    Jarema picks up magic item abandoned near pack of trees.

    [​IMG]

    We are victorious!.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    ThE DaY Is OuR'S!

    [​IMG]

    MEN! I'm proud of you. We rescued Ceridan Ilmarin, and scored a great victory today! Soon we shall march to Carlsson family's hideout. But right now... I need to change my pants

    Ah yes, the wizard. That's the person whose stats I cheated to ungodly levels using a hex editor. When all his stats are 10, he's virtually untouchable, but that would go for any grunt in this game.
    Still, having someone along who does not ask to be paid? :incline:

    MISSION SIX: ORC PURSUIT (STORY TIME AND BRIEFING)

    Fun Fact: In this episode there is Bioware plot twist.

    [​IMG]

    After hours of hard fighting battle dust finally settles down...

    [​IMG]

    We are on route from Karak-Hirn to Karkak...zakrakarak...dwarf place* To inform our king of increased skaven activity throughout the Black Mountains. We surprised the skaven vanguard...

    [​IMG]

    Yeah, you surprised the shit out of them...

    [​IMG]

    We were soon outnumbered by the rat beasts. Your appearance on their rear was fortunate indeed!

    [​IMG]

    The skaven are moving in force. And there is a great foreboding in their activities. Escort me back to Wissenheim imidiately!

    [​IMG]

    Who is this... Insolent?

    [​IMG]

    My true name is Ceridan of the Black Mountains.

    HOLY SHIT!

    [​IMG]

    My identity as Ilmarin, no longer serves a purpose.

    [​IMG]

    An ELF?!

    [​IMG]

    Escort mo to the Carlsson's keep at Wissenheim where I can retrieve my family sword. It's value is of great siginificance to us all. From there we go to Loren!

    [​IMG]

    Journey to Loren is too dungerous at this time...

    [​IMG]

    Perhaps... for a dwarf.

    * I'm writing this down by the ear (from wav. files inside the game folder) because I couldn't take screenshots during cutscene this time and I'm not sure about the name of this second dwarf place. Karak-za-karak? karak-za-something...

    At Wissenheim Deitrich informs us that there are some men for hire.

    [​IMG]

    They are not exactly very useful, pretty simillar to Grudgebringer Infantry but they have more soldiers, and that makes them unwieldy as sack of potatos rocks. But we will hire them anyway, there may be time when Wołodyjowski's infantry will be to beaten down to field them.

    [​IMG]

    There is only one mission avaible. And since it's "HONOUR!" we won't get paid for it... but we don't have a choice, we have to do it (and I hate this fucking mission).

    [​IMG]

    I come seeking help from the Carlsson family's hideout in the foothills of Black Mountains. We were discovered and overwhelmed by Orcs. Many were killed. Carlsson's family were taken as slaves with the rest of the survivors.

    [​IMG]

    How did you escape?

    [​IMG]

    Didn't. Got killed... God, I love this joke!

    [​IMG]

    I fell down a ravine and was left for dead by the Orcs. I made my way back here to inform Lord Carlsson only to find him missing and the town burned to the ground. I implore you to pursue the Orcs and rescue the prisoners. Their numbers are reduced and they have taken Carlsson's gold with them. He will pay you handsomely for the return of his family.

    [​IMG]

    [INTELIGENCE] Carlsson was going to meet us at the hideout... I imagine he is tracking the Orcs.

    [​IMG]

    Carlsson is a good friend and deserves a better fate than this. I am willing to postpone my business in order to aid him.

    [​IMG]

    I tracked the orc horde east before I returned here. I'm sure I can pink up their trail again to the north.

    [​IMG]

    Difficulty of this mission ranges from piss-easy to fucking-impossible and one more infantry regiment won't help us much, so black avangers stays home.

    [​IMG]

    Our troop order. I don't think it matters much in this mission so it's stays on default.

    In the next episode we shall pray that we never been born!

    Oh, btw

    You ought to try the Ultima Online Screenshot Utility. It should work pretty dandy. Just spam the hotkey of your choice while playing and make screenshots magically appear!

    Thanks! it work's great... unfortunately not with SotHR. It says that it makes screenshot but file doesn't appear in folder. It worked fine with Myth though. But I will try to look for something that would work with SotHR because program like that would make things much easier.

    EDIT: Hey it works! I'v set UOSU to save files as BMP's instead of JPG's and now it works fine with SotHR. Many thanks, Roxor!

    Troops update:

    [​IMG]

    Balack avangers stats. Nothing to write home about really. Their main strengt are numbers, and numbers alone don't matter much in this game.

    [​IMG]

    There is no strenght in numbers, I know such misconception...

    [​IMG]

    Shut the fuck up Urieh Huup

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    clip-clip clip-clop... patataj patataj...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    STOP! Look how many dirty Ukrainians greenskins gathered here! This will be glorious!

    [​IMG]

    Look! dwarven regiment, they are going to get slaughtered surprise the enemy again!

    [​IMG]

    And there, near the bridge! it's Carlsson family!

    [​IMG]

    Those guy's who made "An Angel"?

    [​IMG]

    No... our mission objective, Sven Carlsson's family!

    [​IMG]

    Oh, ok

    [​IMG]

    This is where I deployed my troops. No point in drawing a battle plan yet because most important and most dangerous enemy regiment is not yet visible. Orc Big'Uns, nasty fuckers who will rape everyone in melee combat.

    Big'Uns should appear north of us ready to butt-rape dwarves. This is why I deployed so close to the enemy (and in range of Arrer Boyz). You don't have to help the dwarves but their performance is what makes or brakes this battle. I deployed so close in hope that Big'Uns will attack me, not dwarves.

    [​IMG]

    And here they come. I ordered Fletcher to shoot them imidiately, also I move Cleve Allor slightly forward. And most importantly... I fucking forgot to turn-off AI Control.

    [​IMG]

    Moving Jarema up to assist in case of Choppa Rape Squad retaliation.

    [​IMG]

    Cleve cast's Curse Of Arnheir to slow down Big'Uns (this spell also makes targeted regiment less effective at combat).

    [​IMG]

    Casting Hunting Spear at Big'Uns in hope of maybe killing few and getting some EXP for Cleve.

    [​IMG]

    Cleve! Allor! fall back, let Fletcher take care of the Big'Uns

    [​IMG]

    Doing as Jarema said.

    [​IMG]

    Meanwhile dorfs are having rough time.

    [​IMG]

    Poor bastards...

    [​IMG]

    Big'Uns cursed by Allor can't decide if they want to attack us or dwarfs. But regular Orc Boyz made up their minds and coming straight at Cleve. So I ordered him to shoot Hunting Spear at them.

    [​IMG]

    Die! spawn of Chaos!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Allor is out of juice so I moved Jarema forward to, together with Wołodyjowski, prepare a death trap for Orc Boyz.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Boyz are delt with in no time.

    [​IMG]

    Meanwhile other enemy regiment (I think those are black orcs) tries to flank us. That's why I'v put Ceridan there. He is 1 soldier unit but he's "ESSENTIUL!" so if he dies in battle, he get's magically resurrected. Cleve curses Black Orcs to help Jarema and Wołodyjowski deal with them (they are as nasty as Big'Uns).

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Even cursed and charged from behind, Black Orcz don't break straight away. I'v told you they are badass motherfuckers.

    [​IMG]

    Ok, now they flee. I was actually quite worried here...

    [​IMG]

    Bad news. Dwarfs got their asses handed to them and they are bugging out.

    [​IMG]

    Fuck it, let the king deal with it himself if he want's to...

    [​IMG]

    Now all orcs are coming at us. I order Fletcher to snipe them for distance while trying to put infantry and cav in defensive positions.

    [​IMG]

    Also, Cleve fucks up his spell.

    [​IMG]

    I forgot how to mage!

    [​IMG]

    We order Jarema and Wołodyjowski to charge what was left of orc regiment's after storm of Fletcher crossbow bolts.

    [​IMG]

    Allor, cover our backs!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Allor together with Fletcher routes Big'Uns regiment who were getting in position to butt-charge Jarema.

    [​IMG]

    Our valliant fighters finishes off what was left of Orc Boyz.

    [​IMG]

    Now is the time to deal with Arrer Boyz... and most of our losses in this battle were because of this.

    [​IMG]

    Jarema starts loosing man while fighting archers in melee (this fucking game man...) so I order Wołodyjowski to assist him.

    [​IMG]

    Now we prepare to deal with orcs guarding the prisoners. I could shoot them with corssbows or hunting spears but I was afraid that prisoners would be killed in friendly fire or some stupid shit like that.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    CHAAAARGE!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Sometimes I wish I WERE AN ANGEEEEL!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Sometimes I WISH I WEREEE YOUUUU!!!

    [​IMG]

    And we lost couple of men during this charge because I was afraid that Kelly Carlsson family may be hit by stray crossbow bolts.

    [​IMG]

    Mission complete!

    [​IMG]

    Acceptable losses.

    [​IMG]

    We get 2x XP because we fight for "HONOUR!".

    [​IMG]

    Thanks for rescuing us commander Jarema!

    [​IMG]

    Don't mention it...

    MISSION SEVEN: REVENGE (BRIEFING)

    [​IMG]

    We have three missions to choose from. March to zhufbar will end "human missions" and take us straight to dwarfs but I hope to gain some money and experience by finishing Sven Carlsson plotline so we choose...

    [​IMG]

    REEVEEENggeeee!

    [​IMG]

    I am deeply indebted yo you for our rescue. I had reached the hideout only to discover my family missing. I tracked the Orcs but was discovered by a read guard while I slept. I was lucky not to be killed. My prayers to Sigmar were answered when you and Captain Bernard freed us.

    [​IMG]

    Bernard didn't even lift a finger!

    [​IMG]

    Now we are faced with much work to be done. Escort my family back to Wissenheim where you will be given rest. I would ask you to help stamp out the greenskins from my land once and for all. For this task I will pay well and equip you with the necessary reinforcements and supplies.

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

    LP STATUS UPDATE:

    Right now I'v redone only two missions. I had to redo 2nd "Patrol" ambush once and "Rescue Ilmarin" two times.

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

    [​IMG]

    Once more unto the breach my friend... MEN! We are going to Wissnheim!

    [​IMG]

    MISSION EIGHT: VANBERG (REVENGE DEBRIEFING AND VANBERG BRIEFING)

    I knew we won't be ambushed so I choose to go back to Wissenheim with only cavalry, and rest of the troops teleported for free :troll:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Sven Carlsson remained true to his word and gave us much needed reinforcements.

    Troops status after reinforcements:

    Sven Carlsson's guards decided to join us for the duration of Sven Carlsson plotline. Since they leave after that, they are going to be meat shields and cannon fodder (they work for free) :troll:

    We have only one mission avaible now - "Vanberg".

    [​IMG]

    These Orcs must be encamped somwhere in the hills. First you will march to the town of Vanberg where greenskins have been sighted across the River Weiss just south of here. It is fortunate that the river is impassable there, otherwise they would long since have fallen to the Orch horde.

    [​IMG]

    [Outdoorsman] The river must have a crossing point.

    [​IMG]

    Yes, there is a bridge nine miles south east of Vanberg which is held by a unit of my personal guards. When you have reached the town you are to make the area secure. Captain Bernard will take two units of my guard and will travel with you. He has orders to follow your command.

    [​IMG]

    What about the payment?

    [​IMG]

    I will give you an advance plus a personal letter of promise for 100 crowns which will be honoured at Vanberg. If all goes well you next mission will be to move to the bridge and start a search for the Orc camp.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Our choice of troops. I'm not sure if it is good idea to take Grudgebringer infantry when we have 2 regiments of Carlsson's Guard. But I'm not sure if we will be given a chance to change our troops before mission after that. So I took them with us just in case. Also, Ceridan is a dick and refuses to join us.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Allright men, let's get going!

    Awesome! I've been wanting to re-play this since forever, but fucking modern computers man. Only got to dwarf missions back in the day, I think.

    Good stuff, following.

    MISSION EIGHT: VANBERG (BATTLE)

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    clip-clop clip-clop...

    [​IMG]

    Battle overview.

    [​IMG]

    Vanberg is a shithole even for video game standards...

    [​IMG]

    We form our infantry into line of swords that is unbreachable from the front (as we soon will find out, it's also unbreachable from the back...).

    [​IMG]

    We move Cleve Allor slightly to the left so he can get behind infantry when he's done with casting. Also we tried to move cavalry little bit north...

    [​IMG]

    ... But fuckers are stuck.

    [​IMG]

    Excuse me, Pardon! Coming through!

    [​IMG]

    Oh come on! find your own foxhole! I called dibs!

    [​IMG]

    Get the fuck out of my way!

    [​IMG]

    I didn't vote for you to be the leader...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Meanwhile two riders were approaching.

    [​IMG]

    the wind began to howl...

    [​IMG]

    Calm down, both of you. There's too much confusion, I can't get no relief.

    [​IMG]

    No reason to get excited!

    [​IMG]

    Allor curses wolf riders while Fletcher order his men to shoot them.

    [​IMG]

    Curse of Anraheir not only slows enemy down but also scares their mounts.

    [​IMG]

    While Fletcher and Allor are dealing with wolf riders Jarema shoots fireball at orc war boars, but he misses.

    [​IMG]

    War boars charges Wołodyjowski and I attempt to flank them with Carlsson's guard.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Combined force of Wołodyjowski and Bernard proves to be too much for boar boyz and they flee.

    [​IMG]

    But there is no time for celebrations. More wolf riders are coming.

    [​IMG]

    Heimlich Maneuver

    [​IMG]

    Kill the all!

    [​IMG]

    Barefoot servants, too...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    After crushing wolf riders we order our infantry to get back in positions.

    [​IMG]

    Some beaten up enemy regiment re-groups and tries to attack us.

    [​IMG]

    Fletcher deals with them.

    [​IMG]

    There is only one enemy regiment left. Unfortunetly they are borken and all they do is riding in circles... So we must go to them.

    [​IMG]

    I thought it would be once in a lifetime occasion for Allor to grind som EXP but unfortunately wolf riders un-bork themself as soon as Allor gets near.

    [​IMG]

    So we gang-bang them with all we got and they flee.

    [​IMG]

    Thanks for saving our village commander!

    [​IMG]

    Yeah, no problem, just don't touch me...

    [​IMG]

    Oh yeah? bloody aristocrats, we didn't ask for your help!

    [​IMG]

    NOW LISTEN, YOU...

    CUT!
