Firstly my apologies for this taking so long as with 4 people involved and 2 directly scribing and keeping tabs on the battle report it took a bit longer than expected to collaborate all the data required.
I was lucky enough to have a local gaming store host the game for me which was great for two reasons, firstly it showcases to any local readers what the new shop has to offer to the gaming community, and secondly it gave us a great location that was neutral to duke out the battle.
Just a quick spiel about the Dice Spot. The Dice Spot is a fantastic little shop that runs regular wargame leagues, Tcg tournaments as well as RPG nights. It also stocks a large variety of new and second hand gear to compliment all systems of games and if they donít stock it, itís never a problem for them to get it in. Open 7 days they have four 8x4 tables for war games and seating for 26 for RPG's and other games plus awesome air conditioning, drinks and snacks. The fantasy scene is a little slow in my area so the owner Al jumped at the chance to host the game which was very kind of him and I can certainly see his shop becoming a hub for the local community and fingers crossed it grows. Check them out at http://www.thedicespot.com.au/
Just a friendly reminder about the battle reporting itself, I normally do these myself and have a certain format that I like to follow and my brother kindly did the report up in Battle Chronicler using it for the first time after I gave him a 5 minute lesson in it so it isnít entirely accurate and hopefully the text makes up for this.

Yes we decided to call it after turn 4!
Well a great game was had by all but I would certainly change a few things if/when I do a huge battle like this again. Firstly I think Iíd document it all myself as there seems to be a fair few inconsistencies between what happened on paper, what happened on the map and then what actually happened in the game which is a little frustrating but I guess itís going to happen in such a big game like this and things will get lost in translation so to speak.
Incredibly there was only 1 miscast the whole game which blew me away, I figured my opponent would be throwing dice around like his life depended on it especially which access to power of darkness however I couldnít have been more wrong. So the tricksterís pendant didnít really come into play like I was hoping. Secondly the Vortex shard, I should have popped it a single turn earlier to prevent the death of my Archmage however you know what they say about hindsight.
It looks bad on paper but I think if this went further than turn 4 I would have had it in the bag, I had a full unit of Spearelves coming down the flank, a dragonlord still cruising around, the phoenix guard block and still a strong magic outgoing.
Amazingly none of my RBT died whole game which has to be a first but of course my opponent had other things to concentrate on.
Please fire any questions off as I completely understand the diagrams arenít the clearest and Iíll do my best to answer all questions.
