Dwarfs vs. Wood Elves: 8th Edition for the win!!!

Final practice game before Panzershrek the weekend after this one comes to town, 2 days and 6 rounds of 8th Edition WHFB goodness.  Unfortunately despite the best efforts of several people only 4-5 of the 24 strong field will be bringing Dwarfs - shocking I know - when compatriot Adam Richards was talking up the possibility of 8-10 Dwarf players being there.  Now that would have been a truly epic way to wind down what may very well be one of the last 8th Edition tournaments (after CTA in August and another event in Napier) held in this country now that Age of Suckmar is upon us.

Our armies line up to do battle my might Dwarfs facing off against a horde of nasty sneaky little Wood Elves
Lets get stuck in boys and see if they'll come at us... wait.. no... they won't... BOOO
Damn these stumpy legs its going to take forever to reach these guys
Ah ha - the dainty Elves finally get the cojones to charge in... oh they strike first with multiple attacks... oh great... 
Run away run away run away....
Look damn it stop retreating and let me get close enough to charge you already
Ummm They're trying to sneak up behind us.. quick turn around...
That's really not looking good there don't seem to be any Hammerers left alive over there?
Oh great now they've all come over here to attack us
The survivors flee for the hills
Was another fun game, really have to use my Gyrobombers more effectively and ensure that I keep everyone within the 12" Stubborn & 6" MR Grungi bubbles for protection.  Looking forward to Panzershrek next weekend and some decent WHFB gaming... the moaning about AoS not so much...
