Triumph and Treachery

So beastmens first battle in the campaign was a Triumph and Treachery against Bretonnia and Dark Elves. It ended up being a really close fight in the end but the victory went to the Dark Elves. The Bretonnia player said he had to pass up his first turn to Pray. In hindsight we all think that is strange, if that is how it is ment to be a Bretonnia player could see the other players in a T&T game do two turns before he could act. Some post discussion about that got us to think he should just be the last to act in turn 1. We will take it up in the next campaign meeting and suggest that is how we will play it in the campaigns T&T battles.
I ended up having just my lvl 1 Bray Shaman left on the board at the end of the game. That is mostly my fault for doing a couple of bad decisions and rolling poorly but also from my opponents making great tactical moves and rolling good. Highlight for me at the game was my horde of gors, BSB and shaman taking on the horde of Witchelves. After a couple of turns of close combat the witchelves had killed my gors to a man and put a wound on each of my heroes, those two guys held on snake eyes. My Shaman did kill his Hag and 5 other guys in total. In the last round of close combat my BSB and Shaman killed a total of 5 witchelves and took no wounds. He failed his leadership and reroll, then my guys proceeded to run down the 10-12 witchelves that remained. After the battle my BSB has got -1 movement and my Gorebull is -1 Attack and can not use Great Weapons, hand weapon and shield or additional hand weapons. He has more or less lost an arm. Now to the battle itself.
Morthog stood on the hill looking out over the landscape, on his left he could see the sun glinting of lance tips and shining armour of the Knights of Bretonnia and on his right he could see the Dark Elf troops moving into the little seattlement and occupying the houses with crossbowmen. With a loud roar he sent his herd moving forward, the warhounds moving quickly towards the house to see what more the elves had hidden there. A small pack of Gors marched straight towards the Bretonnian lines, Morthog took his Minotaurs and marched along side the Gors. Bringing up the rear was the big horde of Gors with the battle standard and shaman. All three sides started of cautiously but that all changed when the elves rained down arrows on the warhounds killing half of them. The horde of gors moved towards the darkelves and could soon see a horde of witch elves coming towards them. Morthog took his Minotaurs in behind a large monument surwaying the battlefield. The knights held back watching and launching some rocks into the darkelf lines killing half of the Executioners. The beastmen to this chance to charge into the witchelves and Executioners as it was a good opening. The battle between the gors and Witchelves became a bloody mess gors and elves falling left and right. The Shaman found the Dark elf hag and went after her with his staff and dagger. Blades clashed and they both looked eyes as they began their fight. But at one point the Hag swung wide in her frenzy and gave the shaman an opening, he plunged his dagger deep into her heart. Soon after that the witch elves turned and tried to run but the Shaman Marathor and the wargor Korath chased them down and killed them all. Mean while Morthog had underestimated the Executioners whom decimated his minotaurs and made them turn and run. (Bad impact hit rolls and -1 to hit and bad rolls on my part.) As they ran the bretonninan knights charged out running down the minotaurs and the small pack of gors. At this point a gravely wounded Morthog decided to turn and head for safety, the enemy had become all to numerous for them and he had underestimated them all. Heading back into the forest to recover and reinforce his army Morthog swore revenge on both men and elves. He will not let this go unpunished.
