Today the skaven player dropped by and we had a couple of battles. The Campaign phase went with lots of manoeuvring and little action until turn four wich saw a skaven force attack the goblins nex to them.
The goblins also completed a tunnel leading to the skaven lairs
The skaven launch their attack in the center of the city
The first battle was a "control the depths" scenario, were the board is divided in three tunnels, and one must empty them of enemies while having a unit themselves in each to claim control. The skaven army was composed of a huge unit of ogre rats and another of night runners, the goblins had one unit of 20 orcs, two units of night goblins and four bases of snotlings.
The skaven got first move
The goblins launched their fanatics, but none reached the target
While the skaven killed two of them with their shurikens
Charge in the goblin turn
Ended with a slaughter of night runners
Those same goblins charged against the rat ogres but were massacred and caught in the persecution.
The battle ended with the orcs and goblins controlling one level with the skaven none, one unit of night goblin destroyed for one of night runners. Victory for the gobboes, and the skaven army retreated.
This next battle was a "poison the well" scenario, with each player defending his well wich had to be poisoned by the enemy in order to win.
Same armies as before minus losses
Gobbos to da fore, orcs behin'!
At las one fanatic managed to hit, killing one rat
The goblins only lasted few turns before the giant mutants
The orcs charged over the fleeing goblins, but only managed to get killed after routing for all their efforts
The goblins reagrupated
