Further and further the Martians pushed into the dark continent. Some would ask if the invaders knew fear. Others hoped. Whatever the answer, this day was one on which they would confront a foe who would certainly have brought on shivers of fear for humankind.
The Undead army:
1 x Magician
1 x Dragon
1 x shooter
2 x Blades
2 x Hordes
2 x Beasts
The Martian army:
1 x Hero general
4 x Shooters
4 x Blades
|The Undead avoid the bulk of the Martian shooters (on the left of the photo, composing the Martian right flank)|
|The Beasts get stuck in to the Martian flank|
|And make short work of the first blade element|
|A second Martian blade is hit frontally, flanked, with a unit of beasts in the rear, but the 1:5 die roll means the Martian blade survives|
|... but not for a second turn. And the Undead magician ensorcels the Martian hero|
|The Martian hero is unensorcelled, coming on from the Undead army's rear base edge|
|But the trap closes on the Martian behemoth|
|The behemoth kills the Undead hero, but is hit again|
|and is destroyed ...|
|The Undead dragon finally appears, just in time to see the Martian army defeated...|
