War of the Shrine, Dwarf Turn 1



With a roar of wings, the Gyrocopters took to the skies, searching for their best target. Ah, there...a realtively undefended rock lobber among the Orc lines. They flew over and unleashed their mighty steam cannons, but the machine appeared unharmed.


Meanwhile, the mighty Dwarf cannons roared to life. One cannon ball nearly decapitated a flying Wizard of the north, another tore through massed Glade Guard.

The thunder of the Dwarf Handguns joined the fray. Rigal nooded in satisfaction as saddles emptied, infantrymen crumpled, and lines wavered...then silence descended over the battlefield as the first offense ended.

Rigal gazed down from the crest of the pyramid, wondering what his gunfire had done.

Grimly, he counted the casualties. They spoke well of the accuracy and hitting power of his ranged weapons...but the fallen enemies were fewer than he would have liked.

He nodded to his standard bearer who advised the Dwarf lines to brace for impact.


Casualties:
Orcs & Goblins
3 Orc Bowmen
1 Night Gobline Spider rider

High Elfs: 1 Dragon Prince
4 Bowmen

Wood Elfs
3 Glade Riders
3 Glade Guard
2 Wardancers

Warriors of Chaos:
2 Marauder horsemen
