This battle followed the rules for Battle of Altdorf.
5 Huge Siege Machines where lines up outside the walls of Altdorf. Already as the morning broke, enchanted bolts causes the walls to shake and crack. But there were some who resisted! An alliance of men and dwarfs surged out to counter the enemy. And great were their forces.
Counting both stone throwers, cannons, organ guns and two steam tanks, the technology of men and dwarfs combined proved an impressive sight. Their main force made up of longbeards, ironbreakers and greatswords, and flanked by handgunners and crossbowmen.
At the gatehouse itself a cunning grey wizard stood by the grudge thrower.
But wickedness could be seen across the field of battle. Line up against them, 2 cold one chariots, a war hydra, countless of shades, cosairs, crossbowmen and 3 reaper bolt throwers.
In the center of the House Shar’La force, a large unit of witch elves lead by Crone Hellebron.
Altdorf rained doom on the dark elven force. A chariot and many shades were killed. As the Dark Elves advanced upon the gate, the war hydra was wounded, and even more shades killed. The dark elves loosing their entire Western flank quickly.
Wolfgang Koommezzell captured by dark elf slavers.
The Dark Elves soon struck back. Crone Hellebron led her witches into a lucky charge against the long beards, while the hydra raged into a steamtank. Longbeards fleeing and the steamtank exploding, the Eastern flank looked shaken for the city of Altdorf.
Shadowblade, the infamous assassin is revealed and engaged the gatehouse, soon killing the Grey Wizard. But in turn the Altdorf alliance destroy a chariot and a bolt thrower. Soon the ironbreakers engage with the corsairs. Despite another hidden assassin, the corsairs are destroyed. The Witch Elves and the War Hydra continue their carnage on the Eastern Flank, killing a unit of gunmen, and two war machines. On the western flank, the broken heart crossbownmen are destroyed.
Towards the end, Shadowblade manage to take the gatehouse, but is defeated by a large unit of swordsmen. The dwarven general and standard leave the iron breakers to their own fate. The witch elves respond by charging and destroying the unit.
Shaken by their losses, the Altdorf Alliance makes a hasty retreat. While the Merchant Gate is secured, the dark elven siege engines soon causes the old walls of Altdorf to crack and crumble. By nightfall, there were several reports of cloaked figures skirmishing though the streets of Altdorf Merchant District.
