4 Flying characters each on a Pegasus

3-4 Fast Cavalry units
We rolled for Scenarios and ended up with Watchtower which Jeff controlled and he promptly plonked a unit of 18-24 Repeater Crossbows in it. Naturally my Gut Star decided it had to have a go at taking it. The Bulls went down on their left aiming primarily to get the Hellheart within range of his L4 while the Mournfang went on the flanks. Because of his horde of RBT's the Ironblaster both went on the left where only one of the nasty buggers had LOS to me.
|Deployment - Dark Elf vanguards didn't help but hopefully I could get the Gut Star into the building in Round 1|
|One of Jeff's Dark Elf units - the plethora of poorly clad woman in his army made me wonder somewhat...|
|Turn 1 everyone charges up and some early work by the Butcher takes out a few Dark Riders with the Lore of the Great Maw. Heavens proves to be a bust. One Ironblaster misses while the other misfires and spins around.|
|GutStar charges the watch-tower gets shot stomps a few Elves but fails to take it. Meanwhile everything else is wandering around and being shot at. The Gnoblars are gone as are the Sabretusks but Jeff's characters are all held up fighting the Bulls.|
|Last throw of the dice - literally. My armies gone, but my General and BSB are still alive and still hold the watch-tower which in tournament news (with Jeff's General dead) the game is roughly even.|
The list worked reasonably well but I misused/misdeployed a couple of units and probably should have kept the Bulls back. If I had his characters would have had to move around the Watchtower to get into charge range of anything which would have allowed me to set up flank charges with the Mournfang and shots with the Ironblasters.
Lore of Heavens was a complete bust so not enough protection defensively as Lore of Great Maw is and not as offensively powerful as Lore of Death. Going to stick to Maw on both the L4 and L2 as I know how to use them and they are good at buffing the Ogres and helping them in combat which is where they excel.
