For the first game, I chose my Elf warband because it was small and had only a few Special Abilities. I figured it would be easy to handle for my first outing with the rules. Rob chose a warband consisting of 9 Orcs and an accompanying Troll.
|Team Elf: Sneak, Commander, Elite Archer, and Elite Archer|

|Another view of the battle, near the end. The Commander is surrounded by dead orcs, and bow-less "Red" runs down the rocks to knife an orc archer that has fallen from one of her mate "Green's" arrows.|
|Medusa and her Archer's take aim, as the Spearman stands guard at the base of the rocks. Two enemy lay dead in the distance from their arrows...the only two they'd hit all day.|
|An aerial view of the battle. On the right, the first skeleton stands transfixed on his white poker chip , as the Wizard shouts, "Kill, Rusty, kill!" to the Golem behind him.|
