The Ogre army was vast and extremely well fed, but slower than usual given the amount of beef it had been consuming. Bigears was also struggling to keep his troops in check as many, with stomachs full, were expressing a strong desire to march home. But on this day the Mountain Claws would field the following forces:
- Bigears the Noddy Killer - Slaughtermaster Level 4 Heavens, Crown of Command, Talisman of Preservation and Gold Sigil Sword.
- Pugwash Ratboiler - Butcher Level 2 Lore of Great Maw, Hellheart
- Marrowbreath Stinkfeet - Bruiser Battle Standard Bearer, Rune Maw, Heavy Armour
- Hornlugs - 9 x Ironguts, Full command, Standard of Discipline
- Bone Splitters - 7 x Bulls. Ironfists, Musician, Champion
- Itchy Cracks - 4 x Leadbelchers, Musician
- Hair Pullers - 4 x Leadbelchers, Musician
- Goblin Chewers - 3 x Mournfang, Musician, Heavy Armour, Ironfists
- Snotfoots - 2 x Mournfang, Musician, Heavy Armour, Ironfists
- Barney - Sabretusk
- Errol - Sabretusk
- Bugrots Boomstick - Ironblaster
|The human forces rank up ready to face the Mountain Claws. Such was their haste many had forgotten to colour their clothing and/or uniforms.|
|Pugwash Ratboiler (Butcher) & the Bonesplitters|
|Ironguts of the Hornlugs with Marrowbreath Stinkfeet in the centre of the 2nd rank and Bigears the Noddy Killer on the left on the 2nd rank|
|Mournfang of the Goblin Chewers|
|1st Turn Ogre Moves - on the right the 2nd Mournfang unit has advanced up the board edge.|
Filthy human scum.... rockets, cannon balls, crossbow bolts and balls from black powder weapons batter the Mountain Claws ranks. The human mage also calls forth a giant comet whose ominous shadow covers the ground in front of the advancing Ironguts Bigears has a choice, charge the humans passing directly under the path of the comet but risk coming up short or march as far away from its landing spot as he can.
|Run away - we aren't hungry anymore and have had enough...|
|4 units fleeing - 2 rallied (3 x Mournfang & Ironblaster) and 2 in combat (Ironguts & Sabretusk)|
Then moments after then humans charge the 2nd comet hits the ground behind the Ironguts. Its blast killing 6 of them while miraculously leaving the human ranks untouched.
|The comet hits|
|Goblin Chewer Mournfang hit the flank of the humans|
|The victorious Mountain Claws chase down the few remaining humans, but the Mournfang stop to feed on the corpses and let their prey escape.|
But the price has been high only a single Irongut of the Hornlugs Tribe remains and the majority of the Mountain Claws tribe has fled the battlefield.
|Bugrots Boomstick shots at the Demigryphs but the stupid Gnoblar mucks up (again) and the Cannon misfires|
|This didn't last long - although somehow one Demigryph died|
