Deployment: You will see that my Hex wraiths and corps cart are in reserve because we were playing Battle #5 meeting engagement his saurus cav were also forced into reserve due to the game type
Turn one first half: I tweeked my battle line a bit and brought in my reserves. Also the terrorgheist did his thing and screamed quite a few of the skinks to death. They then panicked and went running.
Turn one second half: The painted saurus charged my zombies and started to chew them up. the unpainted ones failed there charge wile the skinks charged my hex wraiths witch was a rather gutsy move he locked them in place and had the opportunity to use his magic from the skink priest to blast the wraiths. luckily for me I dispelled his attack spell.
Turn two first half: The terrorgheist killed a few of the unpainted saurus but they passed there panic check. My hex wraiths managed to win combat and run down the skinks they then ran into the unpainted saurus but only clipped the edge of the unit so they would only have 2 out of there 5 members in the fight.
Turn two second half: The unpainted saurus handily won combat and due to the moral check killed the hex wraiths the other block slaughtered a ton of zombies
Turn three first half: I moved up to avoid getting charged by the saurus cav the only one left hanging out was my corpse cart but there was no way to get it out of the way. The terrorgheist got a really amazing roll on his screech and all most wiped out the unpainted saurus but they stood there ground and passed there moral check.
Turn three second half: The saurus cav destroyed the corpse cart but restrained them selves from making an over run move. The painted saurus finished off the zombies. The last three saurus all most made a rather tricky charge on my necromancer but failed to get the distance they needed.
Turn four first half: my skeletons charged the three unpainted saurus they won combat but failed to run down the last two. The terrorgheist saved me from the saurus cav by screeching them to death.
Turn four second half: the two saurus rallied and reformed in front of the skeletons. the painted saurus were out of place to attack anything so there were forced to use the turn to position them selves better for the next turn.
Turn five first half: the skeletons charged the two remaining saurus and killed them they then over ran them and went off the board. technically they are not on the board we just left them there because it was easier. The terrorgheist and necromancer moved up the board to avoid getting charged and death screeched the painted saurus they panicked and ran.
Turn five second half: The saurus rallied and spent the turn reforming
Turn six second half: the saurus charged the terrorgheist he only won the combat and destroyed them due to having vanhel's danse macabre cast on him and even then he needed a really good set of thunder stomp rolls to seal the deal.
This was a good day for the vampires. This may even have been there first win ever a lot went right for me. I thought it might have gone down hill after the hex wraiths died to combat. But due to working the terrorgheist carefully and the lizard men missing a few charges it all came together.

The Corpse Cart. I tryed to weather the copper and make it look worn. I think it is a little over done but at the same time the zombies need something more. I will have to take a wack at redoing this when I get as bit more done for the army.

Orcs & Goblins Goblin Wolf Riders and just use the wolves so to this day there is a ton of goblins wandering around my bits box. The wolves are ok looking but not very exciting or undead looking.

As far as how I am painting him and the bits I used to make him I just am doing anything I want there does not seem to be anything to go buy officially from GW so I decided to make him stand out a bit from the rest of my army with some splashes of purple and lots of silver mixed in with the standard Imperial fists yellow.

the whole games started with the high elves sending there 2 units of ellyrian reavers forward with there advance deployment. after that the roll for first turn went to the lizards allowing them to send the two blocks of saurus charging into the ellyrian reavers. This was an amazing pair of charge rolls and left the lizard men ahead of the game getting them across the field that much faster. In the upside down picture you can see the small unit of archers that get charged next the Plus side of that combat for the high elves was that after the archers got wiped out they saurus walked off the board and where forced to come back in the next turn in front of the other saurus block and tripped them all up allowing the high elves more shooting and a bit more time to deal with the other units.
So this was another really close game but the high elves edged out a win with very little left just as the lizzard men did the week before. I am loving these close games they have gone back and forth and you can't call them till the end its just more fun that way.
