Sounds like everything came off for you. It's great when things go well because it all falls into place. I have terrible luck with my magic. Getting Pit of Shades off on 3 dice requires a lot of luck. Well done.

I can't remember all the details but it sort of went:

His list
Vampire lord on horse

skeletons 1
skeletons 2

grave guard

blood dragons

and you know my list.

Deployment: our armies were split in half by the amount of terrain so my archers, bolt throwers, mages and sword masters were versus his skeletons, zombies and two vampires. my dragon and dragon princes were up against his elite: blood dragons with vampire lord, grave guard, vaughalf and konrad von castien.

First turn-turn 2
He got first turn, the undead host shambled forward eager for brains!!!.
In his magic phase he cast the spell which takes a guy from each unit and turns them into a sprit in the spirit host, this decimated my bolt throwers

i flew my dragon back to a supporting hill to give "precision bow fire on the vaughalf". my dragon princes a bit unnerved by the multitude of elite units decided to stay put and wait for a opening. my bolt throwers and archers mangled his units apart from the blood dragons.

Turn 3
My dragon gets a opening into his vaughulf but fails to kill it. the vaughulf then promply eats my lord, this sends my dragon into a frenzy. my swordies kill a shit load of zombies. more shooty more dudes dead. i get to place my pie plate on the grave guard.

Turn 4
konrad joins the fight with the dragon and promply reduces it to 2 wounds, this guy is nuts!!!!!!!!!!,the big dragon devours konrad and in my turn rips vaughulf limb from limb. more magic and shooting whittle his units down. he charges one of my archers units with two vampires which go on to rip up my 3 bolt throwers.

Turn 5
my frenzied dragon flew in behind his grave guard ready for a final charge
setting their acharic bones alight?! my dragon princes turn to take a charge from his grave guard. his skeletons now out of the game, due to all my shooting and swordies mischief left his vamps out in the open but well out of the fight.

Turn 6
last charges by me finish the grave guard and the second unit of skeletons

Sum up
He killed my lord, 1 archer unit and the bolt throwers

I killed a unit of skeletons, zombies, grave guard and the vaughulf

and we got a draw.

yaay but not yaay the guy was the store manager

sweet game, love it, but if you had some spearmen units insted of archers I think you could of won

The creatures of the Warp have but one trait with which you need concern yourself - their undying contempt for the Emperor. It is your task to quell the rebellion they preach, and the only sure way is to destroy them utterly.

agree about spearmen over archers vs undead, but \rbt's can still be very useful, if you have enough dispell to give them worries then you can caertainly thin some ranks.
