    Fear of fire is a common phobia between Tomb Kings generals...

    But one easily remedied with the Dragonbane Gem or Dragonhelm.

    The Treeman at least put up a fight against a very worthy adversary. Its much closer than the final results would indicate.

    Yep, but those protect only a portion of the army.

    The only flammable ones are the Tomb Princes, Tomb Kings and other characters, who can take these protection items.

    Poor, poor Treeman. He hasn't got a lot going for him right now.

    Grrr, Imrahil

    Apparently, hammers are good as axes for chopping & splintering

    ...and everyone is mocking the WoC right now. :p

    How about we throw him a bone...

    Soon to be joined by the Black Guard...

    The Treeman gets his first Massive Victory!! The Black Guard aren't doing very well against our "new recruits".

    O wow!!!
    That is just sad... What did the trick?
    The Witch Elves were struggling as well and barely manage to claim the victory.

    Is it the low points value, and thus model count, to match the Treeman's points?

    Grrr, Imrahil

    Both the Witch Elves and the Black Guard have low strength (S3 and S4 respectively). As such, they both struggle with the Treeman's 3+ armour save. However, the Black Guard are doubly screwed because they also needed 6's to wound the Treeman (S4 vs. T6). The Witch Elves also needed 6's to wound, but were still able to prevail because their poisoned attacks allowed them to get sufficient wounds past the Treeman's toughness of 6. If the Witch Elves did not have poison, they would have been decimated. Almost three quarters of the wounds they caused came from their poisoned attacks.

    Hammerers versus Bull Centaur Renders with GW

    Ouch. The Hammerers finally get to flex their muscles and strike at the same time as their opposition... and their results are impressive.

    Savage Orc Big'uns versus Treeman

    Treeman looked to be in a bit of trouble, but once the Choppas rule ended (soon followed by the Savage Orcs losing Frenzy) the Treeman clawed its way back into the contest and secured a hard fought Victory.

    Treeman's attacks are magical so the Banner of the World Dragon did its thing. The only reason the Treeman was able to make some sort of contest out of it was the fact that its Thunderstomp is not magical, so it was able to slip a few wounds through.
