Brettonians:

Chaos Dwarves:

Key Moments.
The directed hit by the Earth Shaker on the Questing Knights which only killed 1 knight. The combined charge of the Pegasus Knights (front) and one of the Knights of the Realm unit which contended the Paladin (flank) on the Blunderbuss unit which contended the CD general and a sorcerer. The CDís lost heavily, broke and were run down. This was a deverstating blow to the CDís and left a unit of CD warriors and the unit of Black Orcís open to multiple charges in the final turn. Both units were destroyed. A win.
VPís:
Richard:182.
Me:1397.

Key Moments.
The Giant jumping up and down on the unit of Blunderbuss and wiping them out. The Goblin Shaman Ďead butting one of the Sorcerers to death. Then the Wolf Boyz with the general in bouncing off the Black Orcís, breaking and being ran down, this put the Black Orcís within charge range of the Squig Herd which included the army standard on the last turn of the game. The charge went in, the Black Orcís won but the Goblins pass their break test on a 4.A draw.
VPís:
John:660.

Final Result: 1 win and 2 drawís. Iím happy with that. Final finishing place 13th out of 18 players.

Just like to say a big thanks to Chris for giving me a lift to the event, to all my opponents for 3 great games and to all The Warchief for running such a fun event. Cheers, Steve.
