Mighty Armies Big Battle BATREP!

It's time for another battle report for Mighty Armies! David and I played this a while back, but with the shows and work, I have not had time to post this...
David (Splintered Light Miniatures) called and said he wanted to challenge me in a big Good vs. Evil Battle of Mighty Armies with some new armies he built. We decided to do a 150pt massacre game.
Dave ran a Dwellers of the Dark army(Dark Elves, Kobolds and Cave Imps) and I ran Forest Border Army(Dwarves, Gnomes and Yetis).

Table Set up

 Dave wins initiative and bonus points for the Wolverine T-Shirt.

After a few turns we started the battle. My Gnomes started out looking real good.

Then it started getting bad..

Uh, real Bad...and then my Gnome Army started to panic..
But my Dwarves were handing out some whippings!

Suddenly David make s daring move with his scouts to try and finish my Gnomes!
It was at this point the Dice turned against me..

No Magic, no movement for my Dwarves and Yeti...
All seemed lost... But the Gnomes had hope..
But hope is a piss-poor weapon against a Dark Elf Dragon-man who slaughtered the remaining Gnomes... Seriously, that guy was bad ass...

 Once the Gnomes were destroyed the Yeti general decided the best thing to do would be to do nothing.. at all.. and only throw up arcane shield.. and just sit there.. because a roll of anything more than a 1 would some how be wrong.. sigh...( I think David had paid them off)
BUT The Dwarves would have vengeance!

But, no, not really.. David rolled what could only be called "Loaded Diced" because his DE went through the Dwarves(Disciplined mind you) like butter.. He cast 4 Magic spells just because he had so much MP to burn...
In the end, only one Dwarven group was was left standing...and that would have been the game.. but David's DE Cav chased them down before they could get off the board...

Well, it was a good game. It would have been a lot better if I would have rolled better but.. that is the way it is.. I have already issued a Challenge next month for a re-match!

Reflecting on my Yeti Army, you know that scene in Braveheart where the battle is in full swing and Wallace sees the Nobles (who said they would support him) ride off? That was my Yetis...Next time, they go to the front lines!
