5k High Elf and Dwarf Alliance vs 2 Skaven Clans

Well having not updated for a while I thought I should probably include a few posts of the things that have been happening in the last few weeks. The first was a mega battle between 2.5k of High Elfs, 2.5k of Dwarfs against 2.5k of Clan Skyre Skaven and 2.5k of Clan Moulder.

The game used quite a lot of proxy for the Skaven army and the dwarf army (if you look closely you can see Wall-E being a doom wheel in some pics), but for the first time I fielded all the correct models for my High Elves and most were even painted.

The table set up for battle

White Lions advance through the woods

the doom wheel advances down the flank

A unit of clanrats feel the full force of a gyrocopter and a dragon
a unit of clan rats don’t fare well against a gyrocopter and a dragon

Magic didn’t really come into the game that much as the winds seemed a bit quiet this battle. That and my Level 4 wizard got popped by a cannon on turn 1 before even having a go!

The game was a bit one sided really as the Skaven Skyre army had lots of small units to maximise weapons crews (in fitting with the theme) which wasn’t really effective for the way Skaven play.

The Moulder army was more effective but the Hellpit abomonations (or stegadon and daemon in the pics) couldn’t stand up to cannon fire, but then nothing really does.
