After 2nd turn.

Skaven: Screaming bell canceled Terror for Clanrats and Rat ogres (with banner of shielding) on the right side (Plague monks are immune by themselves ).  So it was good protection against terrorizing undead drake,… but the dragon rider moved on opposite wing, what Skaven Vermin lord didn't expect :-/

3rd undead turn after combat

Both skaven wings are instantly crushed :-/ , but chariots are reduced.

PS: In the picture is priest on dragon, who moved across whole battlefield to help charge. Fortunately for skaven priest didn"t succed to send a Touch of death (+3 attacks ) and furthermore he met plague monks who are immune to terror.

4th skaven turn
Skaven: I had two options. Either evade and try to stop both wings, or move ahead and charge pure skeletons. I chose second option – charge.
On initiative I charged both wings with clanrats (left) and rat swarm (right).
Here it is after first order/move of huge brigade.

Skavens had too luck, but not enough. One wound left to break undead army. Skaven army was on 10 from 14.

4th undead turn
Undead army counter-charged nearby skaven units and destroyed 3 of them – Rat ogres (top left), Warp cannon and Jezzails (bottom right) (13/14).

Looks like a fun game. Too bad the Skaven didn't win. :)

What they just said.  Thanks for the report.
