We had a game to try the new TLA Profiles. I don't have any Dwarf cav so I just used some rohans to represent them, and Jake used a Warg rider to be Golfbul. My army is a bit crazy for 500points but I really wanted to try the new profiles out.

We rolled for scenario so it was domination which is good for both of us. He has lots of bodies to put on to objectives, and I have fast moving dwarf "Tiger Tanks"!

I had priority Oh wow the first turn charge was huge. The drawrf rams smashed in to the goblins and killed I think 7 warriors just like that (6 after one save from FURY). Dain wounded a Troll on the charge (yay!) then beat the Troll in a combat but didn't kill it, but the enemy Bats stopped my captain winning a fight. I did lose one Ram to 2 lucky goblins.

Secnd turn Goblins has priority so we did heroic moves, but Goblins had 1 hero and a dozen green men move first and stop charges. The troll charged Dain but dain couldn't care less, and killed him this time. The other troll threw a ram into 3 others, dismounting them, but dwarfs won the other combat using axes to kill goblins. We both lost some.

Turn 3 and 4 I won priority, but didn't get any perfect unstopped charges because we were both Mighting like crazy. Dain wounded another troll but didn't kill it, and I lost my banner whiel more goblins died.
Goblins broke on turn 6 and dwarfs on 7, but goblins on the edges away from Fury started fleeing but dwarfs didn't.

I won a close victory for objectives with 3 contested, 1 empty and one held by 2 dwarf rangers.

This was a good game.

Well done, victory over the Goblins is sweet, even when won by dwarfs.
I would rather share one lifetime with you than face all the ages of this world alone.

Not yet, we are both using proxy models so it's really not pretty.
I hope to get the big pig soon.

Post pics when you do get them, I'd love to see them squashing baddies into goblin paste.
