Both warbands set up with a rough outcrop in the centre of the table. Here the critters lived. Figures would approach the outcrop edge and automatically poke into the outcrop , hoping to flush out a critter from the other side to the rock. The Critter could then be caught and returned to a home base area.

After the mauling in the previois encounter the Barbarians were keen to minimise contact with the Dwarves and rushed forward. An early critter was flushed out...

And returned to the the home base

But despite surging forward they couldn't budge enough of the critters
before the Dwarven force arrived en-mass.
Plan B came into effect and Elementals were pushed up the flanks to protect the main force and as many critters were flushed out as possible to hopefully distract the dwarves.

The Dwarves gleefully closed in on the objective critters

whilst also taking some pent up frustrations on the blocking elementals.
The Dwarves soon were heading back with their catches
As were the barbarians
but not as well as their foe.

And a final flurry of fire extinguishing and critter catching ended a satisfactory day for the dwarves.

Result: Win for Valgen's Dwarves.


  1. I hope Slarti Bartfast acquitted himself well. I hope he's not *late*.

  2. Not yet, but the campaigns not finished yet ;)
