    MISSION: ESCORT ENGROL GOLDTONGUE (Briefing and Battle)

    I hope this whole picasaweb business works... also, bullshit mission but there be dragons in this update...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    In respect of the urgency of Mr Ceridan's mission I have assigned a guide to take you from Zhufbar when you are prepared to leave. You will be paid to safely escort my envoy to Nuln where the Empire can be told of the Skaven plot. Once you have the Empire's assistance, by all means, continue to Loren.

    [​IMG]

    Then we must leave immidiately.

    [​IMG]

    There is only one passage tht can be opened which will lead you to the mountains above Zhufbar. 'Khaz Drakk' is its name.

    [​IMG]

    Khaz Drakk? The Dragon's Hall? I don't like the sound of that.

    [​IMG]

    Me neither...

    [​IMG]

    The passage has been sealed for many years after a Dragon and her brood chose it as their lair. Gotrek has volountered to guide you through it to the surface. Good luck.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    A messanger has advised me that King Ungrunn has summoned you to his throne room. I suggest you do not keep him waiting.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    'Sup!

    [​IMG]

    I have something to give you before you depart to Nuln, Commander. I understand the Elf's concern over a Skaven plot to warp the power of this menhir. As you know, the Elves are a proud race and a relic as powerful as this will be revered by them as a comforting light from an ancient past. But it's also potentially a very powerful weapon. This can only be a threat to us. I'm giving you a unit of my finest Hammerers who will be yours to command. They will carry with them a runic warhammer forged by Skalf Blackhammer himself.It will destroy the menhir... as it should have been destroyed millennia ago. You are honourable soldier Commander. I trust you to make the right decision when the time comes. Good luck.

    [​IMG]

    Bye, Unngie.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Ok, this is were we start.

    [​IMG]

    And this is our guide, Gotrek Gurnisson.

    [​IMG]

    And... WHAT THE FUCK IS THAT?!

    [​IMG]

    I thought this whole "Dragon Halls" bullshit was to attract tourists!

    Ok, we are supposed to get our army up north, THROUGH the dragon. But we won't. I tried once and it ended badly. We will try something cheesy different.

    [​IMG]

    Gotrek is so badass that he strangles dragon with his bare hands...

    [​IMG]

    We put our men on the southern end of 'Dragon Strasse'...

    [​IMG]

    And we send Ceridan ALONE to go north past the dragon.

    [​IMG]

    Meanwhile we reorganise and prepare our men because this whole mission just screams "BULLSHIT, TRAP LOL!"

    [​IMG]

    Ceridan goes past the dragon.

    [​IMG]

    Barely avoiding terrible death.

    [​IMG]

    He got through and look! enemy sighted! what a fucking surprise!

    [​IMG]

    Shitton of Black orcs and Big'Uns.

    [​IMG]

    And some cute orc boyz.

    [​IMG]

    We tell Ceirdan to get his ass back to the rest of Grudgebringers.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    He is back and now it's the orcs turn to got through this dragon bullshit.

    [​IMG]

    They are coming!

    [​IMG]

    We order cleve to try his new spell on them. Tangling Thorns, it's basically D&D Entangle.

    [​IMG]

    Orcs are entangled... or just stopped. So we order everyone to shoot at them.

    [​IMG]

    They got hit by the dragon and flee.

    [​IMG]

    Now it's Big'Uns turn.

    [​IMG]

    They didn't get too far...

    [​IMG]

    Black Orcs also tried but... yeah, this mission is silly.

    [​IMG]

    Orc barbecue like you never saw before!

    [​IMG]

    Freaking Black Mountain Fried Greenskins (TM)

    [​IMG]

    God damn that would be great if dragon didn't get all the experience!

    [​IMG]

    Orcs are dead so we send Ceridan north... because we are supposed to "get past the dragon"... sigh.

    [​IMG]

    Fortunately, Ceridan count's as "we" so mission is complete...

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Well, at least crossbows and Allor got some experience.

    Clip-clop, patataj...

    [​IMG]

    Clip-clop...

    [​IMG]

    I must now report for further orders. Farewell, Commander!

    [​IMG]

    Awwwwww crap...

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Well, we couldn't expect Holger to follow us forever, he's kind of a proffesional soldier in service Averland's service. But we got some reinforcements and Deitrich said that someone is looking for work...

    But troop update first:

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    We also have Ragnar and his Wolves, Black Avengers and two Mortar teams, but they didn't changed much so no point in showing them.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Hammerers that Unngie gave us. Nice armor rating and some pretty sick stats.

    [​IMG]

    Bowmen for hire, we'll take them since Holger left us.

    [​IMG]

    clip-clop...

    [​IMG]

    Forward units reports Wolf rider attack in progress. I feel we should assist the poor fellow.

    [​IMG]

    I wonder who got himself in trouble... I bet it's Wołodyjowski

    [​IMG]

    It count's as ambush, so no deployment phase.

    [​IMG]

    Actually, it's not Wołodyjowski, it's some dude on a horse.

    [​IMG]

    We send our men to help him.

    [​IMG]

    Close-up of our Hamerers, they may have badass stats, but their sprite is ugly as sin.

    [​IMG]

    Lone wolf riders regiment tries to stop us.

    [​IMG]

    We move cleve closer so he can grind some more XP.

    [​IMG]

    It turns out that this dude on a horse is a wizard and he eats all mana points so no point in sending Cleve there. We deal with wolf riders using Jarema's hussars.

    [​IMG]

    It's kind of a waste of XP since Jarema is already maxed out but you know, his hussars needs some warm-up from time to time.

    [​IMG]

    Jarema quickly deals with wolf riders and we continue our way.

    [​IMG]

    Meanwhile wizard is preparing dinner for us by cooking some goblins.

    [​IMG]

    Since this fucker is eating all mana points I decided to let Johann Keeler get some XPs.

    [​IMG]

    He's not such a great shot to be honest...

    [​IMG]

    In fact, he can't seem to hit a broad side of a fucking barn so we must move him closer.

    [​IMG]

    He's finally finished.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Easy as a goblin pie!

    [​IMG]

    Thank you for your assistacnce but I was holding them well at bay. I see from your banners you are a mercenary force. It seems you are also in need of master of the magic art.

    [​IMG]

    We are?

    [​IMG]

    I would be avaible for such service for reasonable price.

    [​IMG]

    Let us discuss business in my caravan. My Lord will asses your credentials.

    [​IMG]

    He's cheap, so why not hire him?

    [​IMG]

    clip-clop...

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [Speech] I command the Grudgebringers mercenaries camped by the Nuln road half a mile south of here. This is Engrol Goldtongue, and envoy of Ungrunn, King of Zhufbar and this is Ceridan of the Black Mountain. We ask an audience with those whose voice would reach the Emperor's ear.

    SPEECH CHECK: SUCESS!

    If the same rules apply to the greatswords as in Dark Omen, odds are you shouldn't bother with them at all :thumbsup:

    Cannons. Ideally both of them, but at least the great one. If the helblaster is as broken as it was in the boardgame, you want that one as well. :thumbsup:

    MISSION: DECOY (Briefing and Battle)

    In this episode we are all like "OMG EMPRAH!" and then we grind XP on bandits. Also I fired both mortars and hired everything that was avaible.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Holy fucking shit! the Emprah!

    [​IMG]

    My advisers have told me of your quest Ceridan. Rest assured, our decision will be made in due course.

    [​IMG]

    I am descended directly from the bloodline of High Mage Elior of Tiranoc. During those times many Elves were pressed hard by the Dark Elves and largely withdrew from the Old World to Ulthuan. Among the remnants, my family stayed to maintain a vigil, watching for such a time as this. Now I reveal the secret we have kept and I implore you to act; lest the vigil which my family has upheld for centuries be lost!

    [​IMG]

    Such decisions are not taken lightly. Envoy Engrol asks assistance at Zhufbar and our forces are thinly spread repelling Goblin incursions into the Empire. We will retire to discuss these matters. Return in thirty days for my decision.

    I can't believe it! EMPRAH KARL FUCKING FRANZ!

    ...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I have been wisiting old acquaintances while in Nuln and have managed to secure some work in the local area. Four weeks ago a merchant train travelling from Marienburg to Nuln went missing along with its cargo of precious metals. It was assumed the wagons had been plundered by Skaven operating from the Grey Mountains.

    [​IMG]

    And you know different?

    [​IMG]

    Yes. My sources tell me the goods were stolen by bandits living in the forests north of Nuln. Our task will be to shadow a mock caravan along this route and wait for their attack. After the initial strike we will secretly follow the surviving bandits back to their forest encampment.

    Our roster for this mission (I forgot to take screenshot):

    Jarema's Cav (because we have to)
    Amber Wizard (he's free and we want to grind EXP for him)
    Hammerers (they are free so why not)

    [​IMG]

    Even thought there was this whole "AMBUSH!" screen we can deploy our troops.

    [​IMG]

    We don't have to defend those wagons, they are just decoy. We block them with Hammerers anyway so they wont get in our way.

    [​IMG]

    Enemy of the day. Bandits with shortswords and silly robes.

    [​IMG]

    We order Cleve to get closer to them so he can start casting sooner.

    [​IMG]

    Grinding begins!

    [​IMG]

    Cleve used all mana points and we order him to step back.

    [​IMG]

    He has done quite a lot of damage but bandits didn't fled for some reason.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Jarema shoots fireball at bandits... just because.

    [​IMG]

    One dude burned to death but they are still coming so Cleve casts another hunting spear.

    [​IMG]

    Only one guy died so it was waste of mana.

    [​IMG]

    Meanwhile other bandits got to our dwarves.

    [​IMG]

    Cleve keeps casting as soon as his mana regenerates.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    We routed bandits but, unfortunately, Hammerers lost 2 guys while chasing them, shit happens.

    [​IMG]

    Cleve runs around shooting at every bandit he sees till he's out of mana again.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    One bandit regiment regrouped, choose Jarema as a target so we order him to run around until Cleve regains mana.

    [​IMG]

    Then he shoots...

    [​IMG]

    And shoots some more...

    [​IMG]

    I'm really sick of grinding so order Jarema to finish those bandits...

    [​IMG]

    ... But mission isn't over so we send Jarema to scout ahead...

    [​IMG]

    He spotted some bandits so we send cleve... And you probably can imagine by now what happend next so fuck it.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    We've lost three men. But I really want Allor to get new spells so I'll get over it.

    [​IMG]

    Also, we've lost some money but that's because of reinforcements, I think.

    Goddammit that was terrible. I think I was supposed to do this every time, from very begining till Allor finally gets his fucking 3000 XP. But, seriously If I had to do that for three of four missions I would have stopped playing this game by now. I hope we still can do couple of missions even without maxed out Amber Wizard. I mean, our other men are very experienced so we should be able to deal with Loren, right?... right?

    Yeah. Right. I mean. Yes, probably.
    Though having the Flock of Doom spell for Allor would make shit easier. It's basically a "target a whole regiment" spell instead of the hunting spear which is much better suited for taking out single units, such as rat ogres, trolls and spellcasters.

    MISSION: Bandits Hideout (Briefing and Battle)

    Episode in which I rage... a little.

    [​IMG]

    Our rangers have sucessfully followed the surviving bandits to their hideout in the forest. We are ready to attack and destroy their encampment.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Same units as in last mission.

    *WARNING: RANT*

    Ok, This mission is very easy, in fact it is so easy that I thought it would be great opportunity to grind some XP for Cleve. My goal was to kill every bandit with Allor. My initial strategy was to put Jarema in front during deployment (so bandits would target him) and then make him run around the map. It worked, bandits followed Jarema and I was casually shooting them with Hunting Spears. After 20 minutes or so, one routed regiment of bandits regrouped and went for Allor, Well, it makes sense that they finally realised that it was a trap. They didn't scared me much though, because there was only 3 of them left in this regiment, and allor was kind of, sort of, supported by 13 fucking elite Dwarf Hammerers. What happend next was, 13 Hammerers were routed and killed by 3 bandits. So I run out the house and started to looking for babies to punch, repeatedly. I haven't found any so I'm back doing this mission again...

    *RANT OVER*

    [​IMG]

    Ok, fuck this whole run-around and shoot bandits with Allor. We are going balls out on those damn bandits. Amber Wizards are for fags, I'm finishing this fucking game without maxed out Amber Wizard. WE'LL DO IT LIVE!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Bandits saw us and are coming our way. LET THEM COME I SAY! LET THEM COME!

    [​IMG]

    More bandits came out of the shadows to our right and attacked our dwarves. So we order Cleve to charge them and beat the living shit out of them with his fucking stick, or spear, or whatever...

    [​IMG]

    More bandits jumped out of nowhere so we order Jarema to assist.

    [​IMG]

    Want to screw us on battle system again? COME AND TRY!

    [​IMG]

    We are in danger of getting butt-charged by three enemy regiments...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    But rest of the bandits couldn't hold on long enough to give them chance to attack us from behind.

    [​IMG]

    We order everyone to charge, Cleve is no exception.

    [​IMG]

    Bandits starts breaking.

    [​IMG]

    Mass rout in progress. We order cleve to cast Hunting Spear as a good-bye to bandits.

    [​IMG]

    We finished moping floor with bandits and the battle is over.

    [​IMG]

    Now, torch this place and let's get the hell out of here.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    One guy died... NO ROOM FOR PUSSIES AMONG HUSSARS!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    clip-clop...

    At 4xp per bandit, it doesn't look like you missed out on much experience for Cleve anyway.

    MISSION: CAPTURE GUY GOURARD (Briefing and Battle)

    Episode in which we shoot people with huge-ass cannon!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    The Nuln Guard has offered us work as bounty hunters. Guy Gourard is a notorious criminal, suspected chaos sympathiser and enemy of the Empire. He was rescued from imprisonment by his followers three days ago. Our task is to bring him back dead or alive. He is believed to be headed for the foothills of the Grey Mountains.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    We surprised Guy Gourard at foothills of the Grey Mountain. I have not idea how we managed to surprise anyone while dragging imperial great cannon with us, but whatever.

    [​IMG]

    Gourard's bandits. I think dude in red is Guy Gourard himself.

    [​IMG]

    We deploy as far north as we can so our great cannon have clear line of fire.

    [​IMG]

    We order crew to start shooting at Gourard's regiment.

    [​IMG]

    They miss, but hey, it's theirs first day!

    [​IMG]

    They reload very quickly and shoot again.

    [​IMG]

    They hit something. Not very impressive but definetly an improvement over the last shot.

    [​IMG]

    They reload and shoot!

    [​IMG]

    And hit wrong fucking regiment! But they will be forgiven.

    [​IMG]

    We gave them one more chance to kill Guy Gourard. It's now or never guys!

    [​IMG]

    This one was very close indeed, but not close enough.

    [​IMG]

    We order cannon crew to adjust their position, calculate cannonball air speed velocity and other stuff that artillery dudes should do and give them one last chance.

    [​IMG]

    Still nothing though.

    [​IMG]

    Guy Gourard got too close so we order Cleve to cast hunting spears at him.

    [​IMG]

    And prepare Jarema to finish him off.

    [​IMG]

    Mr. Gourard died in initial charge and rest of his men flee.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    We order cannon crew to shoot at routing bandits, 'cause its fun!

    [​IMG]

    Boom!

    [​IMG]

    Gourard's corpse among dead bandits.

    [​IMG]

    Mission isn't over so we send Jarema to scout ahead.

    [​IMG]

    He noticed two bandit regiments.

    [​IMG]

    We tell him to fall back and order crew of "Brzęczący Szczebrzeszyn"* (that's how I called our imperial great cannon) to shoot at bandits.

    *I wanted to call it "Chroboczący Chrząszcz" but "Brzęczący Szczebrzeszyn" sounds more awe-inspiring. Our regular cannon will be Chroboczący Chrząszcz. It's old polish military tradition to have names that confuses the shit out of enemies. Knight who killed Teutonic Order Grandmaster during Battle at Grunwald (Tannenberg) was called Mszczuj ze Skrzynna. And most famous polish knight is Zawisza Czarny. And all those names actually means something in polish so I'm not bullshiting you...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Some bandits got through artillery barrage so Cleve deals with them.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    And one last shot at routing bandits.

    [​IMG]

    Mission complete.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    No one died.

    [​IMG]

    clip-clop...

    [​IMG]

    We are slightly poorer. But at least reinforcements have arrived.

    MISSION: MARCH TO LOREN

    ITZ begings. Also, finally awesome mission where men are manly and ranged combat is for faggots.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    If you wish, I shall make the arrangements with the authorities to leave for Loren immidiately.

    [​IMG]

    I will travel with you. As we cross the Grey Mountains I must visist Karak Norn to recruit more warriors for Zhufbar.

    [​IMG]

    Cool, we need more meat shields fighters.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    We won't take any cannons, they are useless in case of ambush.

    [​IMG]

    clip-clop...

    He really didn't said anything.
    ------------------------

    [​IMG]

    There is what appears to be a Wizard standind on the path ahead of us, sire. He wishes to speak with you.

    [​IMG]

    I have been shown the heaven' prophecy. There is going to be a great battle. I would travel with you to the Empire that I might aid you.

    [​IMG]

    You think we need your help?

    [​IMG]

    I have seen the possibilities. Waves of brave warrios cut down before the mighty hordes of the Horned Rat. Ulthuan torn asunder and left to stagnate in the filth of the aftermath. You need all my help, and then some!

    [​IMG]

    Very well. Then war it shall be!

    [​IMG]

    clip-clop...

    [​IMG]

    AMBUSH!

    [​IMG]

    That's... a lot of Skaven.

    [​IMG]

    Battle starts immidiately since this is ambush.

    [​IMG]

    We start by telling Ceridan to move to the eastern side of the map. Hopefully he will drag some Skaven regiments with him and also he will be our scout in case that more skaven come for the east.

    [​IMG]

    Then we turn off AI control of our regiments and move them into positions.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    We order Fletcher and Keeler to shoot at whatever is close and then we pray that we will get enough mana to cast entangle (next magic circle is near).

    [​IMG]

    Fortunately we got enough mana and Cleve entangles stormvermin.

    [​IMG]

    One stormvermin regiment is pretty much out of the battle but other enemies are approaching.

    [​IMG]

    Meanwhile we send dwarfs to assist Ceridan.

    [​IMG]

    Clanrats are upon us.

    [​IMG]

    Charge! Drive them back to Skavenblight!

    [​IMG]

    Huuuuraaaaaa!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Fuck 'Em Up!

    [​IMG]

    What? I couldn't think of anything better right now...

    [​IMG]

    Huraaaaaaaa!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Ceridan "noticed" some skavens. We send Ungrunn's envoy to assist Ceridan.

    [​IMG]

    Meanwhile, battle continues.

    [​IMG]

    We send Fletcher and Keeler to see what is really going on in the east.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Skaven in the snow.

    [​IMG]

    Grey Seer casts some bullshit on Keeler troops and they attack Hammerers!

    [​IMG]

    Ceridan is fucked. I hope they will torture him before ending this douchebag life.

    [​IMG]

    Battle in the west is almost over.

    [​IMG]

    Keeler calmed down so we order him to shoot at stormvermin.

    [​IMG]

    DIE-DIE Elf-thing!

    [​IMG]

    fuck yeah, BURN YOU ELVEN FUCK!

    [​IMG]

    Ungrunn's envoy tried to kill Grey Seer but they got swamped by rats.

    [​IMG]

    We shoot stormvermin without getting near them, because they have warpfire throwers.

    [​IMG]

    Ungrunn's envoy lost this very unfair fight so we order crossbowmen to shoot at clan rats and grey seer.

    [​IMG]

    Cleve run out of fucks to give and tries to take care of warpfire throwers.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Hamerers attack clanrats while Fletcher together with Keeler shoots at grey seer.

    [​IMG]

    Cleve routed one stormvermin with warpfire crew and hamerers beat the shit out of clanrats.

    [​IMG]

    Second warpfire team is also bugging out. Only grey seer left.

    [​IMG]

    We can't seem to hit grey seer with crossbow bolts and arrows so we send Jarema to deal with him.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    There is only entangled stormvermin regiment left. So we let Cleve have some fun with them...

    [​IMG]

    And mission is complete!

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    clip-clop...

    [​IMG]

    Hold! What is your business in the Grey Mountains, Human?

    [​IMG]

    I command the mercenary army 'Grudgebringers'. We are traveling to the forest of Loren.

    [​IMG]

    I am Azguz Bloodfist from the fortress Karak Norn. The way to Loren is blocked by Skaven...

    [​IMG]

    Next episode, we shall see what there is to be done in Karak-Norn.

    MISSION: EXTERMINATION (briefing and battle)

    Episode in which we FIRE! and then RELOAD! and then some more. Also "Power Word Win".

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Skaven raiding parties have been launching attacks into the Loren forest for many months nad we have had many encounters with their scouts. We are en route to destroy their foul lair which lies about three days distance from here. In return for your help you will be paid and guided safely to Loren.

    Holy shit, dude talks fast...

    [​IMG]

    And with the Skaven base destroyed here, I can send on some of your warriors to assist at Zhufbar.

    [​IMG]

    Please, no more delay!

    [​IMG]

    Shut the fuck up Ceridan...

    [​IMG]

    It would take you twice as long to reach Loren without our knowledge of the mountains. And those crags are home to unspeakable horrors that would freeze your Elven heart. Be thankful you now have a guide.

    [​IMG]

    This is our Commander's decision.

    [​IMG]

    Yeah, this is my decision Ceridan, so shut the fuck up...

    Well, dragging this whole army around is getting quite expensive to be honest so I had choose my troops more carefully.

    We took:

    Cavalry
    Ragnar's Wolves
    Allor
    Great Cannon

    and some Azguz's troops accompanied us. Ragnar's Wolves didn't do jack shit in this battle but I had to take them... Son you will know why.

    [​IMG]

    clip-clop...

    [​IMG]

    This is how we deployed. Actually, this is just grey floor unless you are looking at minimap (which you should).

    [​IMG]

    Those are rat's houses. Our mission is to destroy them. But first we will have to go through ocean of rats and waves of warpfire.

    [​IMG]

    We put one gyro-copter in the middle of map to aggro rats. Rats are leaving their houses and we open this battle by casting Cleve's new spell. Flock of Doom. This is fucking OP bullshit spell if I ever saw one, but hey, we have it, so I'll get over it...

    [​IMG]

    Yup, it cost's as much mana as Hunting Spear and it just killed 20 fucking rats.

    [​IMG]

    More rats spotted our gyro-copter and try to attack it.

    [​IMG]

    Great cannon starts shooting.

    [​IMG]

    Cleve keeps casting Flock of Doom.

    [​IMG]

    It did serious damage but clanrats didn't rout.

    [​IMG]

    Cleve still have some mana so we order him to take care of Stormvermin with warpfire team.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Regiment of slaves were getting ready to charge Cleve.

    [​IMG]

    But great cannon took care of them.

    [​IMG]

    Clan rats somehow slipped through artillery fire and got dangerously close to Cleve so we ordered him to fall back.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    This time Brzęczący Szczebrzeszyn didn't failed and clanrats were killed by cannonball.

    [​IMG]

    Skaven grey seers started to mess with my gyro-copter by casting on it something that made him attack Cleve. Fortunately gyro-copter don't seem to have any weapons...

    [​IMG]

    Unfortunately, clanrats decided to help gyro-copter and this easily could have been end of Cleve.

    [​IMG]

    But Brzęczący Szczebrzeszyn do not approve of rat's shenanigans. No siree!
    Since Cleve is safe now, he continue his trail of destruction.

    [​IMG]

    Unfortunately while great cannon was covering Cleve's ass some slaverats managed to get close so we ordered Jarema to attack them.

    [​IMG]

    He killed them, but lost one man. This sucks because I have no idea when we will be reinforced.

    [​IMG]

    If you look at the map, you will se that two stormvermin regiments (both with warpfire teams) and two grey seers are sitting in one place. Grey seers would make perfect target for our cavalry (cannons suck at killing lone units) but they would be burned to crisps by warpfire before they would reach them. So we moved Cleve near them and quickly cast Flock of Doom and then GTFO, liek, fast, very very fast.

    [​IMG]

    It killed whole shit-ton of stormvermin, but warpfire team survived.

    [​IMG]

    Then we ordered Brzęczący Szczebrzeszyn to shoot at the other one.

    [​IMG]

    Again, warpfire team survived.

    [​IMG]

    Grey seers were left without support. But I was afraid that stormvermin will re-group and burn my cav if I decided to attack them.

    [​IMG]

    So we ordered Cleve to quickly run towards them.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    He got one.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    And the other one.

    [​IMG]

    Warpfire fucking re-grouped and tries to burn mah Cleve!
    But actually wizards are great at dodging warpfire.

    [​IMG]

    So they got Flock'of'Doom'ed

    [​IMG]

    warpfire team exploded and stormvermin died by their own sword.

    [​IMG]

    What a way to finish a mission. Actually, mission isn't done yet because we have to destroy all rat holes. We did it by casting huntin spear at every rat hole, no real point in showing it.

    [​IMG]

    While Cleve was destroying rat holes. Eric Ragnar collected magic item. For some reason I couldn't get this item with Jarema. Maybe there is a limit on how many magic items can one unit have?

    [​IMG]

    Man of the Match.

    [​IMG]

    I was unable to close one rat hole. Hunting Spear just didn't worked on it, I don't know why.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Clip-clop...

    [​IMG]

    Till next time.

    Man, I'm beginning to hope there's a mission in which Ceridan's plot armor finally fails, so you can feed him to a Rat Ogre or something.



    Looks like you managed to max Allor's XP fairly quickly after all !




    Could I... buy a vowel ? Or Five ?

    That flock of doom, lol. It's like a more bullshit version of the fire wizard's flaming skull.

    I barely hit 2000 EXP thanks to "grind on bandits" mission. I was sure that at 2000 XP Amber Wizard gets teleport spell, but, to my surprise, he got Flock of Doom. And after last mission he has over 3000 XP so now he should have all spells. I read somewhere that 6000 is max XP not 3000. But Amber wizard gets his last spell at 3000 so now point in grinding more.
