There’s gold in them thar hills…
Note that this session was played with a previous version of the scenario, where
the Lannisport Guard at the entrance of the mine was red rank, and instant win
condition for Stark was only checked at end of rounds, not turns. And i took
pictures from different angles this time.
The Greatjon ordered his men to come along the raod, but Daven was ready and
engaged them at once. After he rallied himself, he finished of the first unit of
northmen and pursued to attack the Greatjon, driving him far back with a double
morale result. This was great luck, since the greatjon would need some time to
reach the mine and had his units out of his ZOC.
The Smalljon came along the other road and engaged my guards, but lost some
of his men along the way due to my crossbowmen. Some of those stepped out
the building to be able to fire at the riders.
Daven fought his way through the northmen, but got somehow quite far away
from the entrance in the process. Smalljons riders were now present at full force
and slaughtered away my guards, occupied one building and engaged the crossbowmen.
The Greatjon started to the mine, again, and Tywins men readied themselves to
reach the scene next round. Stark archers shot one horse down. The miners still
did not join the battle, for lack of command capabilities. I decided to hold back
one card, as it was Tywins “order all units” and i figured i could utilize it for great
effect later on.
Tywin arrived at the scene, my riders retook the building and killed nearly all
remaining Stark forces. Only the Umbers remained, but the Greatjon was about
to enter the mine and approached the inner objective, whereas the Smalljon could
always hope for a quick strike at the buildings.
My cavalry had some lucky rolls against those intruders, but things were
not yet safe.
I still had my ace up the sleeve. Tywins commit ability brought my red rank guards
back to live, and then he played order all to order six units at once. Some militia
engaged the Greatjon, and after that he got a ten dice coordinated flanking
attack, with a succesfull capture as result.
Stark had no unit left to enter the mine, and the Smalljon could not hope to keep
one building, not to mention two, between this bulk of Lannister troops. So in the
end, the gold mines were defended successfully!
