You shall not pass!



Axes flash, broadsword swing,
Shining armour’s piercing ring
Horses run with polished shield,
Fight Those Bastards till They Yield
Midnight mare and blood red roan,
Fight to Keep this Land Your Own
Sound the horn and call the cry,
How Many of Them Can We Make Die!


Starks mounted troops rush round the south-western edge and engage with the
Stone Crows. Meanwhile, the Black Ears slip through the crags and collect the ears
of those daring enough to come along the road. The Burned Men take position at
the northern part of the road, awaiting their enemies.



Follow orders as you’re told,
Make Their Yellow Blood Run Cold
Fight until you die or drop,
A Force Like Ours is Hard to Stop
Close your mind to stress and pain,
Fight till You’re No Longer Sane
Let not one damn cur pass by,
How Many of Them Can We Make Die!


The Stone Crows fall under the trained hooves of winterfells riders. Only Shagga
and his personal guard stand their ground, delivering some blows. The cavalry
turns and heads through the mountains, where Timmett and his men fall upon
them and loot their corpses. Brave Chella gets behind the enemy lines, but gets
captured in a massive combined effort.



Guard your women and children well,
Send These Bastards Back to Hell
We’ll teach them the ways of war,
They Won’t Come Here Any More
Use your shield and use your head,
Fight till Every One is Dead
Raise the flag up to the sky,
How Many of Them Can We Make Die!



Shagga struggles to get back to where the action is. The Greatjon and Timmett,
both without any guards left, get at each other, but cant find a weakness in their
foe. Most of the Black Ears crush through Stark infantry lines, just to get flanked
and killed. The Burned Men dont get the time to use their new equipment alot,
thanks to Rickard.



Dawn has broke, the time has come,
Move Your Feet to a Marching Drum
We’ll win the war and pay the toll,
We’ll Fight as One in Heart and Soul
Midnight mare and blood red roan,
Fight to Keep this Land Your Own
Sound the horn and call the cry,
How Many of Them Can We Make Die!



Rickard abandons the main battle to get at Shagga, thus denying him to have
his place in the killing, too. Timmett is working hard to have the clansmen keep
up with the Stark killcount. The grounds fill with dead bodies, and only few remain
alive. Some Burned Men are the last ones to hold the street, but the enemies
coming up dont have great numbers on their own.



Axes flash, broadsword swing,
Shining armour’s piercing ring
Horses run with polished shield,
Fight Those Bastards till They Yield
Midnight mare and blood red roan,
Fight to Keep this Land Your Own
Sound the horn and call the cry,
How Many of Them Can We Make Die!



Shaggas men fall, but he himself stands as a rock, far away from the street.
Timmett eradicates a complete unit of northmen, while his fellow clansmen sacrifice
themselves to keep the last winterfell riders from reaching the gate. He then gets
up and after the Starks, but is to slow to reach them in time.



Starks call a victory, having killed one more unit than they lost. But the clansmen
tried them hard, bloodied the street and did not let any one reach the gate. This
battle shall be remembered, and wolves will think twice before attempting to
march through clansmen lands again…

Nice report. We played this one only halfway through, when Chella's Ear Collectors took about five or six consecutive actions and killed a quarter of the starks...

Yeah, i was planning to reactivate Chella and use her ears in round, and then Stark captured her. I guess it would have turned the tide for me if i had 5 actions with my red cavalry available...

credit, she did try to capture Chella. But a ridiculous amount of blue & red cavalry attacks later (I don't recall if she burned Rickard's rally ability but I think so), Chella was still there... in any case, priority target #1 in this scenario!

Nice report!

Question about the sides, is it reversed or do you flle towards your opponent in this battle?

Thanks!

The pictures are rotated, setup is like in the first image, with the Lannister (or clansmen, actually) troops near the Stark board side, and the Stark troops starting more to the Lannister side.
Felt a little funny to have my own troops quite far away from my side of the board, but usually they scatter across the landscape in the process of fighting anyway
