With the hill land set up the Dwarves chose to hold the line mid table. The Beastmen set up on one side of the table.

The mud from the heavy rain made progress slow. Ideally the beastmen wanted to take advantage of their superior movement to get past the dwarven line, but they kept finding "1"s in their dice rolls and ended up slow and segmented.

With the beastmen going down one flank the dwarven line pivoted round. The Minotaur and heavily armoured Chaos Warrior led to try and hold the pass for their comrades to catch up and pass.
The beastmen tried to hold their ground, but an aimed shot from the dwarf crossbow knocked down the Chaos warrior, and the dwarve beast slayer squared up to the minotaur and knocked him down as well.
The Minotaur got back to it's feet and rejoined the affray with the beastslayer, but the Chaos Warrior failed to pull himself out the mud and Valgen moved into to finish him off, doing so with ease.
Full of confidence Thh Dwarven leader than took on the lone Mintaur. The ensuing battle between the two left Valgen on the ground, an a lowly beastman rushed down the hill to take advantage and slay the warband leader. The Grimdar the Chaos Dwarf came in to cover the straggling beastmen from the threat of the beastslayer on the hill.
Most dwarves stood steadfast as their leader fell. Only Mrs Valgen crunmbled on seeing her husband go to the sword. The Elite Warrior, Falser, looked to make amends and moved up to confront the opposing leader, Johan, but was beaten back. The Rorr The Beastslayer came down from the hill with a roar and dispatched the Chaos Dwarf in one swift move.
He then rushed in to help his comrade on the neighbouring slope, with his attack parried by his hooded foe. Things were looking bleak for the Human as he was confronted with the combined threat of two more powerful enemies.
But help came in the form of the young Mintaur. Will the beastslayer was distracted he dashed in and savagely gouged the dwarf.
The resulting loss of numbers and savage death caused the dwarves to falter and they fled to safety, leaving the beasts to go on their way.

Battle Result: Beastman Win.
