Welcome to the second MOHL Betrep of 2021!

Previously in the MOHL (Game 1) : https://www.dakkadakka.com/dakkaforum/posts/list/796323.page

Feel free to audit this Batrep for rules errors because we are always trying to learn and get better! Let me know what your thoughts are if you make it to the end of this report!

Please bear with me as I am trying to incorporate real photos of our minis and our terrain here without making it too confusing.

DEPLOYMENT

We played a 1500 Point Pitched Battle, following the 6th Edition rules and using the Victory Points laid out on pages 198-199 of the Big Red Book.
An excel with full army lists are attached below with points costs, equipment/item selections, and special rules.
The Wood Elves selected a Wood Elf Noble as their General. Their Spellsinger was Level 1.She rolled The Twilight Host as her spell.
The High Elves selected a Level 2 Mage as their General and brought two more Level 2 Mages. The General was a Seer and selected spells 3 and 4 from Heavens. Another Seer selected spells 3 and 4 from Life. The Third Mage received the Pure of Heart Honour and rolled spell 3 from Heavens as well as swapping his other roll for spell 1.
We generated terrain from Ulthuan from the Big Red Book.
Surprisingly, he was okay with us placing more and more terrain, never opting to stop. I loved this as it blocked more shooting lanes. We generated lots of gentle hills, and lots of deep forests, as well as a few shrines, a monument, and a chasm.

The High Elves finished deploying first after using our Great Eagles to trick the Wood Elves into deploying a few units to the east where they would be far from the actual battle.

The High Elves received a +1 to the who-goes-first roll, which they won. They opted to go first and THE BATTLE BEGINS!

11) The other Scouts target the Swordsmen of Hoeth and deliver 4 Wounds (They passed their Panic Test.)

CLOSE COMBAT:

The Spearmen target the General on the Stag as much as they can and sink 2 Wounds, but one is turned away by the Ward Save, so he lives! The Spearmen manage 2 more wounds on the Wild Riders, both of which are also blocked by their Ward Save! The Wild Riders win the Combat 10-6 (9 Wounds plus Standard vs 3 Ranks, Standard, Outnumber, and 1 Wound). Even benefitting from the nearby Swordsmen's Blessed Tome giving them +1 Ld, they needed a 5 to stay. On a 7, they Broke! They fled only half a foot and were caught by the Wild Riders in pursuit, who also captured their banner! Both the Lion Chariot and the Swordsmen passed the resulting Panic Tests from seeing a friendly Break from Close Combat/Destroyed.

They did NOT benefit from High Ground as the Warhawks negate that with their ability to Fly.) However, they were now Outnumbered by a Fear causing enemy and needed snake eyes for Insane Courage. They rolled a 10! They were caught fleeing by the Warhawks and the Dryads captured their banner! The Lion Chariot panicked from friends Breaking nearby, rolling a 9 (and no longer benefitting from the +1 LD Boost the Swordsmen had been providing!)

TOP OF THE FOURTH

START OF THE TURN:
NO TESTS REQUIRED

MOVEMENT:
NONE

MAGIC:
NONE

SHOOTING:
NONE

CLOSE COMBAT:
The Wardancers strike 2 more Wounds *** and the Silver Helms land one final Wound in return. The lone remaining Silver Helm model has lost the Combat by 2 needing a 6 to stay. He Breaks with the roll of an 11 and they have fed their Banner and are unable to Rally so that's that, the High Elves were TABLED in the Top of the Fourth!

The Wood Elves claim all 4 Quadrants, have captured all the enemy's Standards, killed the General, claimed 100 Victory Points for slaying the Character wearing Pure of Heart, and have destroyed all enemy units, in an historic blowout.


*** We actually had a small bit of confusion here because my Champion was all that was left after these 2 Wounds. Corey didn't direct any attacks against the Champion specifically, but there was one Wound leftover from the regular Helms he wanted to apply to the Champion. I said, no, sometimes, the Champ has different WS, you need to direct attacks against him and overflow on HIM can be spread to his boys. Corey didn't like this because that's not how it works when you are shooting at a unit; after the Musician and Banner come down, so does the Champ. So I may have cheated here if the Champ was in fact supposed to have gone down. He wouldn't have been able to attack back obviously, and the game would have ended right there. But, as I was getting utterly destroyed, I didn't worry too much about cheating him and he let me roll for the Champ to have his attacks back. Any insight into this would be appreciated, we can't seem to find a clear answer in either the BRB or the 2004 Book.


One other question that arose was, should the Swordsmen have had to take a Panic Test when the Warhawks Flank Charged them? They hadn't fought a round of CC yet but they were about to also be engaged to their front. Should we have moved the Dryads first, then taken a Panic Test as soon as the Warhawks determined their Charge was in range?

Yikes. There was a stroke of bad luck there. Maybe time for new dice?

As far as Panic from a flank charge, that only happens if you're already engaged to the front. If the charges are simultaneous, then it doesn't apply. It's basically there to represent the "Oh, gak!" moment when you realize another unit is popping into the combat.

Looking for dice from the new AOS boxed set and Dark Imperium on the cheap. Let me know if you can help.
