    Default Re: The End Times - Warhammer Hotseat



    On the battleground against the Chaos armies , the emperor took a brave decision and sent his armies forth , smashing against the demon lord , who was indeed a worthy foe, but still he was beaten down and the old capital of Ostland, Wolfvenburg was recaptured in the Reikland push to the east. There was however still a few chaos armies still in the vicinity on the cauldron which would have to be dealt with. Indeed those chaos armies might mount a counter, but if they did so , they would expend most of there strenght in doing so which would provide the other empire armies time to counterattack.

    In the light of that action, Ostland under there count Vilmar, still besieged Kislve in the east and hoped to break through the walls , in this season , but a Full chaos army had moved down from the south , through the beastlands area, moving to counter the threat of the empires action in this area. Count Aldebrand moved his taskforce, northwards to intercept the Chaos army knowing that it contained a hell cannon , and that it must be stopped before it reached its target. The two armies sat in a deadlock , whilst each prepared defenses in the plains , whilst the men of Hochland , bought time , awaiting the troops from ostland , who they had asked support of , to throw the chaos warriors back across the river.

    After the surge forward from the empire's Reikland forces taking back the city of Wolfenburg , all but destroying the demon lord, and taking the fort to the east of the city , the men of ostland were impressed by this brave decision at perhaps sacrificing this strike force, to reduce the cauldron'd chaos forces stuck in the pocket. The small fort to the northwest of Wandergart had again been taken by chaos forces, and again the forces under Count Valmir of Ostland surged out of Wandergart to smash the fort's defences with cannon and retake the fort from the forces of Chaos .

    But the majority of Ostland still lay in the hands of the Chaos warriors whose 4 armies had bottled themself's up in the mountain trails up by the middle mountains and there was a fair probability they would counterattack against the aggressive actions of Reikland perhaps laying the ground , [if they received enough casualties] for the rest of the empire armies to mount a counterattack.

    But for Ostland ,their main counterattack was already commencing in the east, where they held the Heir of Chaos, Magnus inside the sieged and surrounded City of Kislev reading there full battle formations , ready for the assault. A horse messenger arrived passing a note to the grizzled commander , Friedrich von Wolden . Friedrick read the note quickly and noted that the forces of Hochland had blocked a Chaos army which had moved down from the south ready to help break the siege and knew that his time was limited, so with little time lost he ordered the assault to begin and the two giant siege towers were pushed towards the large walls of the giant city.



    Chaos warriors stood on the battlements of Kislev making every effort to contest the walls, firing flaming arrows trying to light the towers on fire, whilst some chaos dwarfs tried to raise the elevations of the hell cannons inside the city , so that they could fire over the walls at perhaps the top of a giant siege tower , when it was closer.

    Finally the siege towers met the walls , and the openings at the top of the towers dropped the ramps , which smashed into the wall with a crash , and with a great roar the empire swordsmen rushed to the walls, engaging the chaos forces in fierce melee for the walls. People and other chaos things fought , died and some even fell from the giant walls, in the rush , as momentum carried many , forcing people [and things] into and through and indeed over the other side of the wall, falling to the streets below, some locked in a death grip , as empire troopers of Ostland fell to there death usually grasping and fighting [even whilst falling] some foul monstrosity.

    The second wave climbed the siege tower, and Friedrich knew the risk of putting himself into the fight this early , but also weighed this against the benefits it would provide , if he could provide some command , as the walls would provide a superior position to gauge the combat for the city. It took but twenty minutes to climb all the way up the tower, and slowly walked onto the battlements , with the fighting for the wall ,pushed some way back.

    "Look Out !" , he cried, as taking stock of the battlefield , saw the hell cannon below, had been angled to fire at the towers, and at this moment they did so , as the cannon opened fire with a massive bolt of energy monumentally brightening the whole battlefield and leaving a giant cloud of smoke in its wake after its firing. The bolt struck the second siege tower, at its top , and the giant structure , began to collapse on itself , with only the screams of the dying , as the giant structure agave a groan, as the wooden beams collapsed as a giant pack of cards, leaving a combined mass of limbs, blood , timber and metal.

    "Their cannons were phenomenally powerful. Their shells shook the land so hard, it moved like it was water. Many horses fell and broke their legs. As to the Kislevites and my fellow mercenaries, it was a slaughter. I managed to survive only because the unit I was with routed early. I later learned that those they didn’t kill were taken away in chains, Sigmar alone knows where. I left Kislev soon after, with the taste of ashes in my mouth."
    —Ernst Wolfenburg, Mercenary


    But the sudden loss in the battle although tragic , did'nt stop the progression of the Oslander's as they finally took both towers at either end of the wall , and proceeded to enter the streets of the city itself. The Kislev citizens [those not converted] seized there chance to break free of there oppressive masters, and began to riot, flooding out into the streets , taking the combat to the chaos warriors, with whatever they had to hand, in a vodka fueled frenzy. It was in this manner , that the hellcannon's crew was destroyed, as those kislev citizens , remembering the cries of relatives that had been dragged from nearby housing and tossed into the cannon furnace to fuel to the cannon with flesh and souls , took there vengeance, swarmed the chaos dwarfs cannon's crew , crying out for loved ones, as clubs, knives, frying pans, or even rolling pins bludgeoned, stabbed, or just beat them to death.

    With the forces of Chaos pushed back from the walls, a mighty ram , was sent out to break open the mighty gates , which was achieved in short order, and now the numbers of the Ostland forces began to flood into the city without too much resistance. Only at the Chaos temple built in the centre of the City , made from the bones from captured prisoners and the blood cast into the mortar , stood grimly tall and defiant in the light of the day and the Herald himself stood with his giant frame in front of the temple with the remainder of his forces . The forces of Friedrich spread out , and he knew he could'nt let this most precious of foe's live, or rally his forces, so he called for one of the special units he had kept back.



    The Firelques of Ferlangen may have had there settlement taken , but they were eager for revenge , falling up into a three deep rank company flanked and secured at the rear with sword and spearmen of Ostland , and at a command of Friedrich , opened fire , with a three rank volley on the massive chaos warrior form of the Herald. The giant form of the Chaos warrior shuddered and twisted as multiple shots hit it in the arms, chest and legs, and it raised its mighty weapon howling out its pain and hate . The rest of the remainder of the chaos warriors echo'd the call , and as the Herald took giant steps , as it charged towards the Fireloques as they rapidly reloaded, and the rest of the chaos forces followed there mighty leader.



    "Reload !" called the captain of the fireloques company , and the men began adding powder to the firearms , loading in mere seconds , a feat practiced many many times over battlefields and training.

    "Aim !" , the barrels of all the long rifles, lowered and the first rank knelt to fire as the Chaos warriors ran at the valiant men , as they aimed at the Chaos Herald and his approaching forces.

    "Fire... ! Bring down that bastard! " , said the commander of the company , and the surrounding area , was surrounded with smoke and flame, with the crack of shoot rang out, as volley after volley was unloaded onto the approaching Chaos warrior's and their leader. As the smoke cloud cleared , it was seen that the Chaos Herald , was lying down , on his back down on the floor , pierced from twenty close range shots , his massive frame , still trying to restand, the floor was littered with many warriors around him . Another chaos warriors shock there heads in the disappearing smoke, luckier than the others, charged again, reaching the firelogues line, and the riflemen, had began to use the wooden butts to attack and cripple there foes, repeating the feats from yesteryear when they were named "Skull Clubbers" from the battle of littered bones, where they had received battle honours from there desperate hand to hand combat. Seeing the riflemen in peril , the rest of the Ostland swordsmen , surged forward, enveloping the rest of Chaos warriors using there greater numbers, to hit the Chaos warriors in the flank , and silence them forever, finally reaching the Fireloques battleline , as the last of the chaos warriors were extinguished and only the Chaos Herald , was still alive, his voice gasping for breath , as his massive armour prevented him from rising from the incredible number of wounds he had taken.

    Friedrich moved over his foe, and the Chaos Heralds , helm looked a the Osland general with hate in his eyes in the narrow aperture slit, his desperate gasping of breath , a low hum , echoing from his heavy helm , as the ostland general raised his greatsword, into a weakpoint in the helm .

    "Take this message back to your Gods!" , he snarled, thrusting the sword deep , as the last breath expired from the Herald ,and came out as a hiss , to the acclaim and cheering of his other troops and the nearby Kislev citizenry.

    "No rest my lads! ...Patchup your wounds, and have the best companies we have left ready for the march soon , for we must reach the Hochland positions in the next few days to help fight the chaos reinforcements! But break out whatever alchocol we have to celebrate this victory...and those that are still sober to move , make ready to march in the next six hours!", replied the jubilant General ,taking off his steel helm , and wiping the brow of his forehead.

    ----------------------

    It took eight hours for most of the Ostland troops to rouse themselfs from the drinking they had been doing that day , and the Kislev peoples were free with there own spirits , a clear white liquid called vodka , which brought sleep or merryment to those tired of limbs or down of spirit. Fully three quarters of the Ostland troops , complained bitterly swearing at all nearby commanders, and fellow troopers, as many relieved themselfves in the nearby streets or fields , from the intoxicating liquids , giving them headaches, and the water rations were severely depleted that day , as the annoyed troops marched north. After a few hours, of sweating the troopers began to enjoy the sunlight , and even became cheery and sung out to long known marching songs , which was a rare treat from the rather dour peoples of ostland .

    Within two days, they had joined with the troops of Hochland, and Friedrich was overjoyed [not :p] to be working with the Count Elect Aldebrand of Hochland, with his overly cheery outlook as the Ostland forces, acted as bait to draw out the Chaos forces. The enemy commander , the hochland troops had reported was not a great commander, and it took little time , to lure them into a ambush , and the hochland army took them in the flanks from both sides with hidden troops, surrounding the chaos forces. It took only two hours , to hack down 1500 chaos troopers [two thirds of their strength] for only the cost of 400 lives of the empire , and both the count elect and Friedrich were pleased that the Chaos forces efforts to relieve Kislev had been blunted, as the last quarter of the chaos army fought its way clear, and routed northwards back into beastmen terrority.

    Friedrich grinned , thinking the day , could'nt get any better, when he felt a clamp of a large hand of his shoulder.

    "Come on lad!, ... I have constructed a tent , where all the commanders of this great day , can celebrate, and have a variety of wines, my valet , has brought along for just this purpose.", before the count elect Aldebrand , lifted his hand indicted the tent , in the distance, as he moved forward, flanked with other chatting nobles.

    The smile vanished from Friedrich's face, at such a prospect , of facing both the count and his nobles, hobnobbing with them and the wine, much preferring the beer, or fierce firewater of the kislev forces , which he was starting to appreciate , but knowing his duty , his shoulders, slumped he stepped forward towards the tent, as his sub-commanders , who all stood around grinned at his discomfort .

    South of the River Talabec , a small garrison was moved to be a small fortification to help blunt the new orcish assault which was preparing to launch itself at the League of Ostermarks /Talabeclands forces in its eastern quarter. Such a small garrison might prove value to relief the Talabecland's forces, as they prepared themeslfs to face the onslaught from this direction......

    Count Elect Sigfried of Talabecland read the note from the Count of Averland , asking for somesort of action against the orks to relief his sorely pressed troops , but the recent orkish reports, were dire reading. He had planned to strike at Mordheim , but the recent push forward of the 2 of the four orkish armies in the east, made such a move differicult in light of the need of troops on all fronts , made sure the attack was cancelled.



    With 4 orkish armies in the south around the recently captured Wurtbad with two of em having artillery within the army groups , he knew that a attack across the river would come sooner rather than later, either at eastern or western crossing points , and Talabecland had not the strenght of arms to defeat or even to slow em down.

    Standing with his advisors he received a report , that one of the Talabecland fleets had struck at unprepared new orkish shipping near Bechafen which was undersiege from one of the orkish battlegroups , prehaps bringing news that orkish shipping on the Talabec river would be denied to his enemies was the only good news he would be receiving this season, as he started to concentrate all his strength in the centre group , as Talabecland , prepared to face a orkish onslaught.

    The Stirland nobility had all but been wiped out by the horde of orcs , leaving them but just one province...Averland lent them the town of Pfungzig for a time to give them a safe haven but new orkish forces arrived , and Averland requested the return of the town , to help the defense of the river for there own protection, again leaving the men of Stirland there last province of Flensburg. Knowing the danger of annihilation, the Count Elect and his son , decided on a risky guerrilla strategy putting themselfs at risk , in the hope of keeping their people in the fight , whilst they negotiated with talabecland for a piece of there lands, to safeguard their people, to keep the light alive , for a little more time.

    The first attack was at Potting which was attacked with the help of two spies that opened the gates, as Count Henry and a swordsman company storming in , surprising the orks and taking the town by storm. In the East, the Prince Wolfgang only had his own bodyguard and a mere ten men left of another company, attacked Leicheburg . In the dark whilst most of the small garrison of orks were sleeping , two spies sneaked in and opened the gates, allowing the prince and his small band of men , to storm in , and take them whilst they were unaware.

    The hour grows late and the news, grim. The armies assembled in Averland exceed any deployed in the history of the Empire. The forts are manned, the walls are guarded, and the approaches are watched. Sadly, this may not be enough. Greenskin hoards are now rampaging freely throughout the central Empire. Unchecked, they could do untold damage and make further resistance impossible.

    In a minor victory, the weary armies of Averland force-marched south and attacked the Orc rabble that had gathered in the mountains and was descending on Old Solland. Once again, the armies of Averland had saved Stingart from destruction.



    Harried for many miles, the Orcs undertook a great trek across Averland, hoping o cross the river and link up with their comrads at Hornau. They had almost finished crossing the river when the local garrison struck, wiping out most of them. An opportunity seemed to emerge. Orcs began to file into battle one army at a time. If the host of Averland struck quickly, a great victory might be theirs. Sadly, it was not to be. The enemy had deployed Black Orcs. The local commander planned out countless battle strategems, but ultimately concluded that defeating the foe would be impossible. He would need to content himself with slaughtering the Orc stragglers.



    On all other fronts, the armies of Averland dug in, preparing themselves for the coming storm. In the Hall of Heroes in Averheim, Count Marius began to meuse on another sort of conflict. Marius feared that Emperor Karl Franz had led his armies into disaster. Though he did not speak of it, nor send ravens to any of the other Elector Counts, he began to wonder if Franz was truly the best man to lead the war effort...

    Orcs up!

    Count Elect Vilmar looked at the map, showing the appearance of new chaos armies which had been raised from new portals where whole multiple armies had been summoned and reinforced the chaos positions which had previously been made weak by the sacrifice of multiple Reikland armies , who charged into the chaos armies with sword and halberd. The chaos armies had been surrounded in a cauldron , but supply was not a issue for these armies , as they would have little issue with even eating the civilians captured in the pocket, to keep themselfs alive .

    The armies would bleed the empires armies to death , as it would need sufficient armies to hold the north [around Erengrad] , and the south & west, and Ostland , which was sacrificed to bait the trap , whilst the drip drip of further chaos armies were sure to be moving down from the cold wastelands of the north , and whilst the ever experienced priests of chaos converted more and more of the population in what was Ostland , whilst experienced chaos assassins killed all priests and empire assasin's with abandonment.



    The situation was a ticking timebomb that could onlyever be contained , unless a great sacrifice was made, denting the chaos offensive ,reducing there numbers allowing for other armies to move in for the kill , but after the sacrifice of Reikland troops doing just that at great cost, and with the raising of ever more chaos numbers via portals, the situation turned from one of containment , to one of hope of victory , to utter defeat, as chaos armies now rushed forward , sacrificing themeslfs in turn , against the wall that was the defence's of the wolf river.

    The men of Hochland , did a grand job , of holding the riverbank with barely sufficient forces, ever present of the causalities that was bled from its own ranks , at such rates , that the gaps in its forces , could'nt be refilled, and Ostland itself, hoping at some small victory in the east, to keep hope alive, retook Kislev , only to find a chaos reinforcement army being sent against them , was just barely broken at the cost of half their troops.



    Reports were given from the gallant leftover forces of Hochland in the east, and the remnants of Ostland , that another chaos army of demons had also been summoned to that battlefield as well , and the ostland units fell back to Kislev to make the last stand.

    Vilmar grimaced at the map , seeing empire armies at first victorious , now falling back or just holding position everywhere , but ostland's capability to build troops was at a end, and Hochland , must be reaching its limits, to recruit able body men into the once proud armies , and with this new resurgent armies of chaos , he knew now that this was not now a battle for the empire , but a battle of annihilation and the empire had lost.



    Kislev had perhaps a marginal chance of surviving the next chaos attack , and this was providing most of Ostland's gold , now , but even then , the chances of recruiting any troops from that gold , was negligible, and now the southern river towns were now at risk , with perhaps Wandergart being first on the menu , four brave companies having to be sacrificed in a fort , north of the town to buy more time , but these troops would not be replaced in any such quick measure and the City's population was evacuated across the river, only to find the people of Talabecland refusing to take the refugees , themselves under risk of destruction. So the forces and remainder population of the southern riverbank retreated there forces , back to Wurzen hoping to perhaps make a last stand there against the resurgence might of the chaos armies which had been rekindled.

    Angry now , he ordered one of the generals to pass him , the bottle of vodka he had been sheltering , and ordered the rest of the nobles and generals to depart, declaring he had a blinding headache , and needed a night of rest. The lords and grizzled veterans left the room one by one , and when he was sure , they had departed he began to drink heavily ...and none but perhaps the two guards that stood outside the Count's current quarters would have heard the elderly man weeping [none would hear apart from the two bodyguards , but they were family friends and they would'nt speak of it].....

    Turn to Talabecland
