Forest goblins ambush High Elf, AoS Battlereport
The High Elves was forcing their way through the forest but the forest was watching their every step...
My friend and I played a game of Age of Sigmar. I wanted to have some forest on the table and we then decided that a sort of ambush scenario would be fitting.
We opted to use an older Warhammer 40k scenario for this.
I got really lucky with my roll for which troops I was able to deploy at the start of the game. The only units I wasn't able to deploy at the start of the table was my small unit of trolls and my bigboss. The dimwitted trolls was hard to get into place for the ambush and the bigboss was evidently working hard to get them moving.
As my troops are rather fragile I had set my eyes on the enemy archers thinking they would be some juicy target. If I could take them out early I think my army would have it much easier.
I still havnt had any luck with the trolls and the bigboss... My poor forest goblin infantry was in for a world of hurt...
And now finally the trolls have been so kind to shown up.
They are totally missing any idea of fighting civilised or fare.
The High Elf warband had been stopped and the bigboss and his spider, the shaman and wounded troll could celibrate this massive (pyrrhic) victory at the camp fire later that night.
Most have been a rather hollow celebration at that camp...
More goblins would have to be recruited in the future.
Wow what a game... I thought I was done for early in the game. I did manage to effectively neutralize the enemy archers but its was costly. I think it was still worth it, they could have damaged my army real good if I hadnt. The loss of the third spider rider unit was a little sad and then I really thought it was all over.
But somehow the bigboss on his spider managed to stabilize the defenses, get the trolls onto the battlefield and somehow stop the High Elves and win the game.
