Mighty Armies: Attack on Bad Rock Castle

So my brother was in the mood for some Mighty Armies. We decided to do a big Siege battle using my Miniature Building Authority castle. We had to make some House rules to cover the assault on things like the main gate and cover for the defenders. This is a big castle so we needed alot of options.

Scott took the alliance of Wild Elves(2 Armies)and the Swamp Dwellers. I took the Dwarves and my Robin Hood Army.
As a defender, I also got this Scorpion Artillery. Here it is over the main gate with the Dwarven General.

As we started, Scott won initiative, so the Elves and the Swamp Dwellers archers moved forward and lay covering against my defenders. He wanted to get his Lizardmen to start bashing the gate.

I had some bad rolls, so they got up to the walls. I had to move my crossbowmen back behind cover, I was getting alot of heat.

My General was not happy :(  But I did take out some units with the Scorpion!
I had no Spellcasters on the wall. That was a mistake.

As Scott's Giant Lizardment broke through the gate, I got a lucky shot off from the tower and killed them :)
then I sprung my first trap.. Murder Holes!  MUHAHAH

While he was trying to bash the inner gates, I was raining death on him! I had a Minotaur on the other side, ready to pounce. In Scott's best Borimir voice he said "Oh, they have a Minotaur..." lol.

The dead started pilling up.

About this time, I had some crappy rolls and he was all sixes. So he got his Wild Elf General in the gate with a pretty good supply of units.
            Only to fall into my second trap, The Killing box! My dwarven warriors were ready and I also have Frair Tuck slinging magic like a mad man!
I also rolled very well on my general rolls and had enough points to flip my wall archers to fire in the courtyard. It was a slaughter. If I had not rolled well, It would have been bad, real bad :)

While we were fighting it out inside he was trying to sneak some units in the beggar's gate.

But he rolled poorly and they were stuck out I the open to die. At that point, his remaining Generals called off the attack and slunk back into the woods!

All in all, a great game. There were many times it could have gone either way. We are building up a campaign, so I hope to have more reports soon!
