Some of the League of Nil-ith Horn troops crossed over the mouth of the Torgova river and marched overland in an attempt to link up with the landing parties. King Gorm’s outriders caught one such band as the orcs left the cover of the forest. Our second Fantasy Warriors battle of the day (now turned to evening) saw Bleddyn command the riders, supported by a unit of heavy infantry, and a unit of ulfhednar: light infantry with fast movement.
Graf Stukkin led the Nil-ith Horn orcs with their own heavy unit, 2 units of Vangen orc heavy infantry and 2 urog heroes. Bleddyn brought his ulfhednar across the field and through the trees, and engaged the League of Nil-ith Horn unit. The urogs attacked the horsemen, while the battle leader Graf Stukkin joined with the heavy infantry of valdgraf and continued to close with the humans. The fighting was fierce and bloody, as the valdgraf heavy infantry joined the 2 urogs in their slaughter of the cavalry.
Bleddyn’s ulfhednar routed the League orc unit and sprinted to attack the remaining orcs. Blows were dealt back and forth.
Only the orc leader and the human bannnerman remained. They each got a saving throw. The bloodbath came down to the last dice roll. Would anyone walk away from this battlefield? The lone bannerman would! Bleddyn made his save and assured the people of North Gautria would be safe from these wretched orcs.
