League of Nil-ith Horn Orcs vs Vangen Orcs

We had the pleasure of hosting old gaming friends this week for a couple of Fantasy Warrior throw-downs.

One played the Vangen orc faction ruled by Valden the Ruthless, a giant urog who rules with an iron fist. The other played the League of Nil-ith Horn orc forces, commanded by Graf Gorik.

The Vangen horde on the left, and the orcs from the League of Nil-ith Horn in green on the right.

Valden leads his forces containing 4 urog heroes, a unit of elite valdgraf heavy infantry, 1 unit of orc veteran heavy infantry, and a unit of medium-armored infantry. Graf Gorik commands the army from the League of Nil-ith Horn, with 6 orc mercenary heroes, a unit of elite heavy infantry, and 2 units of veteran heavy infantry.

Valden’s troops have encountered the contingent of League orcs pinned on a hilltop.

One last orc from the League of Nil-ith Horn is slain by a lucky javelin. That breaks the nerve of the remaining unit, and they rush from the field in a hasty rout.
