Outcome of the clash in terms of points:
The battle ended with a "Victory" n favor of the Yao:
The Orcs & Goblins suffered 4753 loss points(Sandro).
The Yao suffered 3124 loss points (Sergio), with a difference of 1629 punti in their favor.
The battle started at the penultimate hour of the day (fifth). Therefore after only two turns we fought at night, which favored the greenskins.
The Orcs and their Goblin slave started immediately to attack, while the Yao cautiously waited, targeting them with the arrows of the Crossbows. The Orcs responded with heavy crossbows and archer throws. The lack of artillery in the Yao army made itself felt. It will have to be remedied.
In the second turn, the Great Dragon eliminated the Jagghernauth. The Orc Warchief, the mighty Ugrut the Devastator, Half Giant, then threw himself into the battle, who was bravely faced by the Hero and the Destroyer of the Yao. The mythical duel lasted for most of the game. Ugrut directed his attacks on the Destroyer, managing to wound him. He then in turn had to suffer the attacks of the two opponents, who managed to injure him. The Priests and Clerics of both sides had their work and began to suffer the first losses.
In the fourth turn, Kubilay, the Yao Warchief, gave his command the order to attack and went on the assault on the head of his Cataphracts "Wolves". The Units of the two armies arrived at the clash and the battle was raging across the front. The Wizards' Cabals of both armies summoned an Arcane Entity (Fiend) to reinforce their respective "Giant" components.
In the tenth round ended the epic duel between the Orc Leader and the Hero and the Destroyer Yao, to which the two Entities (Fiend) then joined. The titanic clash ended with the elimination of the Yao Destroyer, the Yao Hero and the Orc Leader.
Another epic battle of Naran Fantasy Wars !
