The is the same scenario as Battle #8. Ardaric's Barbarians are again set out round the camp fire with sentries.
The Dwarves started to come on, with the crossbow men moving down the centre between the rocky outcrops and the main force heading to the south.

Remos, on his horse, moved forward enough to see the approaching dwarves over the central fence and managed to raise the alarm. The Barbarians then grouped back together and started to move towards the southern woods for cover, a similar tactic to battle 8. Boindel on his bear races round to try and hinder the Barbarians, but after a brief skirmish pulls back as the main force approach the corner and the dwarf ranged force.
But the barbarian force doubles back and engages the crossbowmen, but despite being outnumbered they hold firm, knocking back or be ing knocked back from combat actions. Valgen moves up to support the start a counter attack, but an early turnover leaves him exposed, and the barbarians pounce, taking him out of the battle. Hagar fails the resulting morale test, but can't get further than short from an enemy and is destroyed, whilst Sly goes down under some ranged fireballs from the elementals. Broken, the Dwarves retreated.

The result: A Barbarian Win
