Battle Report 2500 Dark Elves Civil War

Postby ampao » Tue Jan 14, 2014 12:40 pm

Heya guys! Since Im starting to get back into fantasy decided to create a batrep to see how I'm doing! Played a 2500 pt game vs Fernando couple of weeks ago and here is the result:

Image
Deployment
Koko High Elven Betrayer L-R: Dark Riders, Reaper Bolt Thrower, 10x Darkshards, 20x Darkshards with the Banner of Eternal Flame, His Psycho Elf armed with a Great Weapon and the Cloak of Twilight also on Dark Pegasus, Big block of 30 Executioners, accompanied by Mistress Ryvik a Level 4 Shadow Sorceress with 4++ save and Dispel Scroll and the BSB, Master Gahigulo equipped with the Stubborn Crown, and a Luckstone. 2 Reaper Bolt Throwers and in front of them 10x Doomfire Warlocks with the Dreadlord Silverstrand the Betrayer on a dark steed, Armor of Fortune, Ogre Blade and Dawnstone. Beside that another unit of 5x Doomfire Warlocks.

Mistress Ariakas and the Warhost of Naggaroth L-R: 2 Reaper Bolt throwers to secure the left flank and 2 units of 5x Doomfire Warlocks advancing, 10x Cold One Knights with the Gleaming Pendant led by Mistress Ariakas herself. A level 4 Dark Magic Sorceress with a 4++ Save and a Dispel Scroll. 14 Executioners with a Standard of Swiftness, Hannibal my Psycho Elf on a Dark Pegasus in the back. A unit of 5x Harpies screening the 28 strong Witch Elf Horde with Razor Banner (duh) that is led by Malistryx the Death Hag on a Cauldron of Blood. 10x Darkshards with Banner of Eternal Flame and 2x Dark Riders protecting the Right Flank.


Image
Top of Turn 1 After Movement: Doomfire Warlocks move behind the Dark Riders. The other unit of Doomfire Warlocks move right next to the Bolt thrower on his right (our left) flank. Cold One Knights advance right next to the woods with the Psycho Elf right beside for support, and harpies to the front for screening. The executioners run into the forest, hoping for a charge next turn. The big block of witch elves march forward at and angle to protect from a flank charge. The Darkshards advance to get in range of RXB shots while the Dark Riders position themselves to protect from the Warlock unit led by Lord Silverstrand. The other unit of Dark Riders moved back. (?)


Image
Top of Turn 1 Magic Phase
Unit of Warlocks successfully cast Doombolt on the Dark Riders killing 4. Causing a panic on the lone survivor.


Image
Bottom of Turn 1


Image
The Dark Riders hiding behind the executioners come out and set themselves up for a charge (a bait perhaps?) from the Witch Elves. The big unit of warlocks slink backwards from the Dark Riders while the smaller unit of warlocks become more aggressive and move forward.


Image
The lone Dark Rider failed to rally and continues running between the two armies. Darkshards peppering the Witch Elves with 50 shots (?) and killing off 9. Reaper Bolt Throwers and the 10x Darkshards killed off the harpies and almost caused a panic in the front lines.


Image
The Doomfire Warlocks charge the Reaper Bolt Thrower. Psycho Elf charges the 10x Darkshards who failed to wound on Stand and Shoot. The Executioners charge into the big block of 20 Darkshards with protection from the woods. The Darkshards were hitting on 6s and didnt manage to hit one!


Image
The single Dark Rider charged into the Bolt thrower. The Witches pass their Frenzy check and continued their push forwad. Darkshards attempt to swift reform to face the Doomfire Warlocks but failed their reform check.


Image
Top of 2 - End of Movement


Image
The Doomfire Warlocks were able to cast the boosted version of soulblight cast with Irresistable Force! (with the miscast only killing off 2 Warlocks)


Image
(not pictured)the single Dark Rider who charged the RXB on the eastern front failed to wound the SINGLE crew member. That crew member defended the warmachine and won!

The Warlocks killed off the Reaper Bolt Thrower and overran into the 10x Darkshards. After one round of fighting, the Darkshards fled away from the Warlocks and the Psycho Elf Pursues into the other Darkshard unit. The executioners couldnt strike as fast as the Darkshards but survived with the -1 strength of the darkshards. Only 2 executioners fell. The resulting attacks back caused enough wounds for the Execs to win combat and overrun into his Psycho Elf. Cascade FTW.


Image
Got so excited from the cascade that no more shots were taken until after the big combat. Execs charged the witches, Silverstrand and the Warlocks charge the Dark Riders (who fled) and redirected into the witch elf unit. The smaller Warlock unit charged the Darkshards who stood and shot and killed of three Warlocks before they could close into the RXBs. During combat, the BSB stood forward and issued a challenge which the Deathhag gladly accepts. The Deathhag's attacks failed to wound the BSB at all but the Cauldron's Attendants were! Byebye BSB! Good thing he had a great weapon. After all blows were struck, death hags dealt 15 wounds to the execs and 2 to the BSB and 1 to the warlock. The Execs and Warlocks killed off a lot of the witches. The result was a loss by 1(or2) but the witches decided to run anyway. The witches rolled a 7, the execs AND the swiftstride Warlocks rolled a 5 both! A Huge amount of points saved!


Image
Hannibal charges his Psycho Elf, the Cold Ones charge against the executioners who fled. So decided to charge against the warlocks, who also fled. Malistry and the Witches and Dark Riders rally and position for a charge in their next turn. At this point Silverstrand calls the game and concedes. GG!

Yeah, very cool.

Would love more stuff like this. In fact, we should put it in our Library section. I think our last bat rep is from 6th ed!
