The battlefield at the end of Turn 3:
"...whoa...What?", blurts Ballin, "Did you hear that? Did they just say, 'THEY and US'?"
"Yes, yes", says Alfred the Standard Bearer, "I distinctly heard them say 'They and Us'."
"But 'They and Us' what?"
"Maybe they're finally realizing that 'They and Us' is all the same. That we's all be Dwarves. Maybe they're coming to their senses..."
Suddenly a Ballista bolt stops short of Ballin's unit.
"Yes, YES!!!", exhorts Ballin, "That's it!! Just look at that bolt. They didn't mean to hit us. They don't want to fight us! It's all been a big mistake!"
Ballin steps forward and shouts towards the Thunder Mount Dwarves, "BROTHERS, BROTHERS , YES, YOU GOT IT!...THEY AND US, YOU AND US, US AND US...WE ARE ALL US, YOU HAVE IT RIGHT! WE ARE ALL DWARVES. BROTHERS, ....ONE LOVE, ONE CAUSE, ONE PEOPLE UNITED!!!!"
Lord Asgard hears big-hearted Ballin shouting at the Thunder Mounters. "Careful, good Ballin," thinks Asgard, "I don't think this is over just yet."
Movement - Asgard's unit moves forward 3inches and wheels ever so slightly so it is in line opposite to Thorrir's Company.
The Crossbow Wedge and the Skirmisher Crossbow unit do not move.
The Speardwarves pivot on their right corner warrior and wheel forward 2 inches.
Ballin's troops move two inches forward to be back in contact with him.
The Grenadier Hand Weapon unit moves forward 3 inches.
Shooting - The Skirmisher Crossbows fire at the Bolt Thrower crew. They need 6's. One hits! And...wounds! "Huzzah!!"
The Crossbow Wedge fires at the centre company again. It is now short range. Three hits are scored. Only one of them wounds.
Reserves - Lord Asgard's unit moves forward 3inches.
The Speardwarves hold their position and start pounding on their shields.
"Why aren't the Thunder Mounters responding to my calls?", wonders Ballin.
He halts his unit. Ballin's unit does not move. Some of his warriors start to pound on their shields too.
The Grenadier Hand Weapon unit moves straight foward 1 inch before wheeling forward 2inches, pivoting on their right-most warrior.
The Skirmishers and the Crossbow Wedge do not move.
My table at the end of Turn 4:
Lord Asgard notices that Ballin has stopped shouting. He can feel Ballin's disappointment. "Dear lad," thinks Asgard, "if only these Thunder Mounters were as true as you."
This makes Asgard angry. He hears some of his Dwarves start to pound on their shields. More soon join in. The strong rhythmic pounding seems to match the pounding of his own heart. And then he looks over at the gleaming, glowing, general of the Thunder Mount Dwarves. "Look at him!", Asgard thinks, "Just look at him glowing and gleaming in all of his magic do-dads..."
Suddenly Asgard steps foward and calls out to the Gleaming enemy General...
"HEY!! YOU! YES, YOU! NO, DON'T YOU TRY AND HIDE!! I WANT THIS TO BE BETWEEN ME AND YOU! LET US SETTLE THIS LIKE DWARVES!"
As Asgard says this, he throws down his beloved battleaxe and starts taking off all of his armour! Soon he is naked and weaponless. He waves his fists.
"I DARE you to face me without all of your Elfish trappings!!! Meet me with Honour!!"
Note: Although this is a game of Warhammer For Adults, this is still a family-friendly blog, so hence the tasteful censoring of Asgard's nakedness.
