The weekend saw my dad and I return to a bit of Fantasy wargaming with a game of Warband pitting my vampire army against my dads Woodelves. The game was close for long parts, but in the end the Woodelves got the upper hand as my dad just seemed to rally his troops at just the right time. When my army was broken a quick scan of the battlefield showed that a number of Wood elves units were down to their final point of morale. Another really fun game using these rules and we both definetly now that our battles are becoming a lot more tactical. Here are some shots of the action.
Tree Ents who are as tough as,and a unit of spears taking refuge in the comfort of the woods
My Gargoyles managed to quickly get around the elves flank and launched a charge at a unit of Spearmen
However the Spearmen win the combat and tne Gargoyles fall back as the unicorns move into the fray. The dire wolves also made an appearance onto the elves flank.
Slowly the Mummies and Thralls move towards the hill line
Werewolves hunt for in the woods for the elves kin.
The Werewolves charge from the wood into a unit of archers, as the Vampire Lord leads by example and charges into a unit of elve Spearmen
The Tree Ents make hard work of the thrall archers before finally coming out on top
The mummies join the fight to lend there muscle to the combat against the unicorns
After finally destroying he werewolves to tree Ents and stag riders flank a unit of thrall warriors
To little to late as my vampire Lord wins his combat and pursues into the highly weakened elf Spearmen.
The final positions on tne battle field as the Vampire army defeated.
