Bloody battles: bodies begin to pile up

Game 1. Septicimius and Grandfather Drowner vs Suarez and Krovich in The Ogham Stones

The magic circle that enabled Septicimius and the Bloatfather to enter the world may be a useful source of power for many of the scattered generals of Bloodfist’s army. Chaos reigns as Grandfather Drowner, Septicimius, Suarez and Krovich make temporary alliances in an attempt to seize it.

Game 3. Septicimius and Bubonicus vs Ulan and Scunforp in Ambush

Game 4. Vin Skizzle and Zennarch vs Marzbarz and La Viet play The Messengers

Zennarch finds Vin Skizzle, who cowers from the offer of a duel and instead suggests he can lead him to other Generals. Elsewhere, Marzbarz has met up with his ally from Bloodfist’s army, La Viet. The two Skaven Warlords have already been tracking each other to settle their rivalry and come across each other; but each only with a small travelling retinue. Both promptly decide they are understaffed to take a victory; both send Messengers to call for aid from their main camp to win the fight.

The battlefield now stands thus:
