Wild African animals like bones.. rats!!

Annual HotT Carnage tournament tomorrow, and Nick has traveled up to Christchurch from Dunedin to play. Being a little rusty, he asked for a couple of practice games, and this was the first. He is using his African safari animal army, and I chose to use my Undead army ... an army made up of assemblages of bones, fighting an army of wild animals. I should have known that this wasn't going to end well...

I deployed with my centre secured by 2 stands of zombie dogs (beasts in the rough going, with Hordes and hooters on the right and my Hero and Blades on the left. Two Magicians sat behind, waiting to hurtle magical devastation at the enemy.

The Magicians began their incantations, raising the forces of chaos from beneath the ground.

The air reverberated as bolts of magical power zapped through the air, sending one of the two units of flyers (vultures) hurtling to their doom.

The rest of the force advanced, Behemoth general and Lion Hero in the battle line.

Gorillas (Beasts) advanced towards the Undead flank.

Zombie Hordes shambled forward on the Undead right.

The Hero destroyed one of the units of zombie dogs... ahhh, bones..

But the Undead hero shifted to fill the gap.

Before his very eyes the African Hero disappeared, the result of powerful forces of magic.

In quick succession the Zombie Hordes and the undead shooters disappeared before their general's eyes.

The Undead Hero struck again and a unit of Rhino Knights fell beneath his  deadly blades.

With a '6' the Hero broke the magic shackles that had bound him to the netherworld, and appeared to assault the Undead Stronghold.

And in short order the battle was over.

Carnivorous animals against an army of bones? I should have known that this wasn't going to end well.
