Chaos Warriors v Orcs - Warhammer 8th ed

Khorneton bought his lovely Chaos Warriors over for a game of Warhammer.

I decided to get the Orcs out for a laugh. Just Orcs, no Gobbos (though there were trolls and giants along for the ride). 2400 points playing the scenario where you have banners and a general for your break point.

The forces assemble.

Spuggy Dave the giant leads the way.

Dragon Ogres!? Filth!

Battle about to be joined.

A sunny day on the Sherwood Soldier Shack made for some "interesting" pictures

Though it was Kleary Kold in Khornetown as they bought their own snow with them.

The Khorne Warriors splashed into the river and discovered it was MADE OF BLOOD!
Which they rather liked.

Spuggy Dave took chariot and Dragon Ogre to the face. Though not quite as many Dragon Ogres as expected as a big green foot had already squished one.

Although Dave was dealt with the last of the Dragon Ogres then found himself looking at a whole load of vomit coming his way.

Bravely (foolishly? with Orcs it's hard to tell) the Boarboys charged the Juggers.


Chariots thumped in to the Chaos line.

Including an empty one (memo to self: make crew for chariot)

Flappiibastd the Daemon Prince was busy harvesting magic dice and haemorrhaging Leadership thanks to some magic item or other.


The contents of the trolls' stomachs removed the Dragon Ogres. So the beast chariot thing decided to have a go at the same thing.

The chariots proved reasonably effective, but the Stone Trolls found warriors a bit gristly and indigestible.

I was rather hoping the boarboys would run away, forcing the Juggers to pursue them into a deadly swamp. Instead they hung around then were all murdered.

The Orc Boys and Big Un's crept toward the centre.

Then the Boys took on the Warriors.

A distinct absence of Rennies meant the Trolls were well equipped for dealing with the Juggers.


Flappiibastd the Daemon Prince caused the Blaock Orcs to soil themselves and flee. Then found himself on the flank of the Arrer Boys

The warriors were grinding through the Boys.

Flappiibastd the Daemon Prince  prepared to cut down the Arrer ladz.

However at this point I came to try and rally the BlOrcs and the Big Un's (who had fled a flank charge.
Fooolishly I rolled the BlOrcs first - and a 9 was not enough. I then rolled a 10 for the general in with the Big Uns who fled from the table along with two standards and the game was up!
Had I rolled the other way around the Big Uns would have rallied and the BlOrcs would then have had a re-roll.
Quite an Orcy way to lose though.

Great game and good company and the Orcs (well, the Trolls mostly) did surprisingly well against the Warriors for most of the game.
