The first turn, mostly movement, but a missed musket shot or two as well.
The dwarven clan chief, just called the Mountain King.
Orc Warboss Skullsplitta' and his 'ard boys.
The first casualty of the skrimish, one of the goblin archers.
Start of the 3rd turn.
The Dwarven polar bear rider clashes with a goblin on a gigant spider. After lost of biting and scratching, the spider and rider lies dead, but the bear rider is heads down.
Over by the woods a fierce fight breaks out, the dwarves first charging the orcs, killing one and driving the other back while losing one warrior themselves. Then comes the orc counter-charge, and the lone warrior falls to the savage blows of the charging orc.
The orc shaman (off shot here) summons a lightning bolt, but luck is with the musketeer he aimed for, how quickly drops to the ground, narrowly avoiding the bolt.
Lightning bolts streak from the shamans open hand, grazing another dwarf!
Start of the final turn.
At this point we decided to call the game, since the Orcs had lost their leader and their shaman was the only real threat left, they wisely withdrew.
A Dwarven Victory!
Clash on the Fringe works beautifully for fantasy it seems, and even though we came up with a thing or two to change around for next time, it required minimum changes to work as a warband fantasy game. With some additional changes, I think we'll be able to play both bigger company equivalent games, as well as micro hero skirmishes, with nothing but a handfull of heroic characters facing off against one another.
I have just finished up the last component of my newest sci-fi army, the NIJA now have infantry and commanders and even some scouts!
The 1st campaign scenario will hopefully be played early next week, along with a trial run of Laserstorm, now that I have a Opfor ready to take on the GEU.
Til next time!
