VS Ratkin

I'm Trying something new with my battle reports. Please let me know what you think.

Ratkin Turn 1

Nothing much happens. They cautiously edge forward and the artillery misses

Rhordia Turn 1

A general push on the Right Flank and the Goat Riders press forward on the Left. The 95th Rifles with the Jar of the Four Winds shoot the Spear Horde and the Goat Riders shoot at the Brutes but only do 1 wound.

Ratkin Turn 2

More Cautious movement and the taking of some terrain.

Rhordia Turn 2

More shooting and edging closer to combat

Ratkin Turn 3

The Ratkin begin to threaten the approaching Rhordian forces, while keeping their eye on the objectives.

Rhordia Turn 3

Rhordia get down to business with concentrated fire on the Horde of Spears taking them out of the game while the Lancers and Hussars make progress taking a regiment out on the Right Flank.

Ratkin Turn 4

The Ratkin begin to be more aggressive.

Rhordia Turn 4

Rhordia begin to get the upper hand on the Ratkin, taking out the shredder and another regiment.

Ratkin Turn 5

The Ratkin start seeking their objectives while concentrating their forces to attack the Rhordian Centre

Rhordia Turn 5

Rhordia turn their attention to holding the objectives and with concentrated fire and charge in the front and flank, two more Ratkin regiments were removed from battle.
Advantage Rhordia.

Ratkin Turn 6

The Ratkin focused on holding the objectives they were controlling and preventing the Hobbit Spears from getting to an objective.

Rhordia Turn 6

More concentrated fire removed a regiment of Ratkin holding a ruined building in the middle of the forest.

The Dice was rolled and it was a 1, so the game finished.

Objective Count

So the Rhordian forces succeeded in vanquishing the rats from the forest, but the Elven scouts had informed their allies that more forces of evil were on the way.

    And thanks for the feedback.
    I’m sticking with photos as this took way too long to do.
    I will upload some photos.
    The Ratkin looked really good.

  • ChopperHarris says:

    I got photos, but they are close ups of battles.
    The positioning was scratched on a notepad by a friend of ours who was watching.

  • Bad Elf says:

    Interesting pictures. Wish we could actually see the midels and how they’ve been done though

  • Alphie says:

    Yes nice. We can read strategic, it is very helpful to understand moves. I like it.

    Just two “but” :
    – maybe legends could be useful ?
    – White on yellow hard to see.

    Good game Mister Emperor.

  • King Ramhorn says:

    How did you note the aerial positions as you were going along? A gallery would defnitely be nice

  • Lit Wick says:

    OK, I like the idea a LOT. It definitely clearly shows precisely how the battle unfolds. That being said, pictures are AWESOME and always appreciated, too. I do commend you, however, for trying something entirely new!

  • Keef Ditchards says:

    I know people like pictures , but I really appreciate the graphics. Thank you for your efforts.

  • ChopperHarris says:

    Thanks for the feedback dark one.

  • Dark David says:

    Nice idea, but I prefer photos

  • ChopperHarris says:

    I just did it all in publisher.
    Took way too long though.

  • Mortan says:

    Easy viewing.
    What programme or app did you use?

  • Bazzatron says:

    I Like it. It would be better when you upload some photos of the armies together too though.
    Good job. No words needed, just the diagrams.

  • ChopperHarris says:

    I tried to use a more graphics to describe how the battle went, as I know people who speak other languages may understand the progress much better than lots of writing. But it was much more work and took me hours, so I am going to go back to using my camera and more descriptive reporting.

  • ChopperHarris says:

    The Ratkin forces were really nicely painted and I have photos of them. I will create a gallery on this report once I upload my camera.

  • ChopperHarris says:

    Finally got it all working!

  • ChopperHarris says:

    OK, don’t mark me on the report just yet. IT failure is stopping me from uploading anything.
    I’ll message here when I have added everything.
