The Rise of the Undead : KoW

Some more fantasy madness in the dungeon with a horde of undead against and even bigger horde of stoic men looking to defend their homes against the vampires, zombies, ghouls and skeletons.
Who knows where the artillery will hit, in fact if it will hit at all ?
The army of Men aligned through the village
At the far side of the village the General on a giant griffin, more cannons, wizards and pretty much everything in between ๐Ÿ˜€
Ghouls come crawling across the fields....give them a volley...but they are dead already!
On the right flank and initial charge by our knights has failed, the infantry have gone in, and although they hold eventually they too are attacked in the flank by fiendish blood hounds !
The guard armed with great swords march forward.....to their doom ?
An over view of the battlefield, despite our best efforts and some lucky shooting the vast horde of skeletons, zombies and dead stuff force their way across the battlefield. Our heroic cavalry is hindered by the ploughed field so turns away to protect the centre where they charge a regiment of skeleton cavalry, who eventually crumble to dust....
But it is all too late the forces of Men are being overpowered, as the end of the battle draws close the spearmen finally break, and both flanks begin to collapse.
Get one more shot off before we flee !
The Zombie 'legion' shambles across killing all in its path.

A fun battle, but when the count was added up a major victory to the undead, the remains of the men fled the field...any who survived screaming in terror as the undead ate any that remained on the field !๐Ÿ˜ฑ

  2. I like the renaissance look of the men, the fantasy stuff you can keep for me though.

    1. The standard look for WHFB empire troops before they became even more outlandish, have often thought I could expand them into historical gaming perhaps one day....for now they will fight the vampires ๐Ÿ˜€
