Great Military Disasters - The Liche King in Kings of War
I fielded a Liche King army. I concentrated the weight of my army onto my right wing, intending to refuse my weaker left. So from left to right, front to back we have: regiment of skeleton spear phalanx, regiment of skeleton warriors, regiment of revenant battle cavalry; and in the second rank a skeleton king, troop of skeleton warriors, troop of revenant skeletons.
I had allowed my units to become to seperated and set myself up for a flank charge from his chariot reserve. Movement in KoW is more flexible than in many of the games I have played and one doubles flank attacks in Kings of War!
My revenant elite and most of my skeletons died: well they were already dead, of course. In desperation I threw my king and Liche Lord into the fray before checking their stats: it turns out Liche Lords have little melee capability.
He will of course be back, when he has reconstituted his body back in the crypt and raised a few undead.
