Suddenly everyone was coming over to see our table. Commenting on how many more figs you could get on the same size table. Ahh interest.
So for anyone interested. All our figs are based on 40mm wide x 30mm deep bases. (except the war machines) 2 bases side by side was a Troop. 4 bases (2 wide 2 deep) were a Regiment. 6 bases (3 wide 2 deep) were a Horde. For Ogres, 4 bases was a horde.
Rick's High Elves and Dwarves, run by Allen vs my Orcs and Troy's Lizardmen. 6000 points per side!
We set up behind a screen, when revealed it was my Orcs facing the Elves and troy facing the dwarves.
So the battle soon came down to a race of who would turn who's first.
My orcs had to bear the brunt of a heavy Elf cavalry force and a huge amount of fire from bows, ballista and dwarf cannons. Troy's job was to overwhelm those stubborn dwarves as quickly as possible, i was also having to deal with 2 dragonlords.
Orc tactics are pretty simple, send the goblins in first to suck up missle fire and pin the foes in place. Thank Gork for goblin hordes, they can take a licking! But dragons is just hot playing fair!
The game lasted some 5 turns, in the end the Lizards had turned/destroyed the dwarf flank while the Elf flanking force had lost steam. In the center the Orc Hordes were finally getting into the melee and slowly forcing the Elves back. An Evil victory! Yea I know, troy keeps reminidng me that the Lizardmen are 'neutral.

It was a wonderful game! Already talk of a 6 player campaign as early as next month!
