"Nowt to worry about lads - I've seen spiders bigger than the ones they're riding in mi bath"
Despite the setback of having their war-machine smashed by the desperate dwarf sally Ruglud has continued to turn the screw. Now, emboldened, he's decided it is time to assault part of the fortress outer defences.
The Orcs would have 1,000 points including a single war machine versus the Dwarf 500 points of defenders. I decided to give the Ironbreakers rocks to hurl on their foes.
Finally it was all too much and the Orcs returned to the fray, picked up their enormous log and thrust it through the vaguely resisting doorway and forced themselves home.
This was good fun, The actual sige rules seemed to work pretty well and the door only cracked on the very last turn of the game. I suspect the full game will just turn into a bit of a grind with endless combats that neither side can win decisively enough to force the issue. However at this size it worked rather well and I'm looking forward to the grand climax.
