|Empire vs Dark Elves (The Epilogue)|
Thanks to Kev, being the sport he is, agreed to a one off game, namely the 'breakthrough' scenario from the 7th Edition rules where the DE have to get a third of their forces into the Empire deployment zone by the end of the game to win. Slightly biased I know, but based on past performance against the DE, highly likely (see previous posts).
The game was highly entertaining and just for a change, a contest right to the end with the DE running out of steam by round 5, mainly thanks to some very nifty magic (which was itself a bit of a novelty, the only place I got to throw more dice than Kev being power dice) and the Empire troops, and in particular the mortars, wearing down the DE numbers sufficiently over the course of rounds 2 to 4 enough to tip the balance.

You can see from the final photo that there wasn't much left on the field which shows how close a battle it was.
