The forest floor was littered with a tangle mess of timbers from the wrecked ship and smashed trees brought down by the crash.

The Ogresuns quickly took stock of the situation. The Gilded Hand were going to try to hold the loot with weight of numbers and firepower. The Ordeshal Host were getting ready to reap a bitter harvest of anyone who stood in their way. The Orruk Pirates would need to act fast and hit hard. Luckily, they were good at that!

Karol, the Cuirassier, smashed into Lyrd Radclyffe's Riders, but neither side gets the upper hand.

The Ogresuns raced across the open ground in front of the tower, toward the scattered cargo.

The fastest Pirates threw themselves into the Freeguild lines. Kaptain Ogbad set about himself with his kutlass and quickly accrued a vicious tally of kills, far outstripping any other combatant.

The second wave of Orruk Pirates prepared themselves for the charge by having a sneaky sip of rum... or two.

Lyrd Radclyffe's Riders and the Karol continue their fight...

Ogbad took a wound but he and his Boyz were able to slaughter both the Fancy Fencers and the Marksmen.

Lyrd Radclyffe's Riders finally deal with Karol and make haste toward the Orruks lines.

Bad Hook was left alone with the loot. Salty Ogbad and a couple of lads whittled down the Freeguild troops but the tide was turning against the greenskin Pirates.

Lyrd Radclyffe cut down several of the Pirates, the Whyte Lady blasted Bad Hook with an Arcane Bolt and Kaptain Salty Ogbad found himself alone between the Ordeshal Host and Kalyustar, thought better of it and quit the field.

Noisey William looked out over the ruins as Kalyustar turned and rode away from the undead warband, taking victory with him!

Salty Ogbad could feel the darkness drawing closer to him and pressing down, suffocating him as he ran incautiously through the thick maze of woodland. The densely packed trees loomed high above, but remained still despite the icy breeze that continued to flow around him. The silvery moonlight was slowed to a trickle by the full branches, and Salty had to squint, only to see a path of gloom and uncertainty ahead.


After game:

Loss (+3 Renown - saved up)
Triumph: Warding Glyph (Salty Ogbad gets a 5+ save vs. Mortal Wounds for the next game. Again!)


  1. Argh so close too - the Skipper's a right beast though! :) Onward to venegeance!

    1. That he is!
      I was racking up Laurels of Victory in the first two turns but the other guys caught up in turn 3, but it was really close! The final totals were:
      Ogresuns 5
      Ordeshal Host 5
      Gilded Hand 6
