15mm Battle: Dwarfs vs Orcs.

I fought this battle back on the 7th so all the details are a bit sketchy now. Any way it was an enjoyable game. I used "One Hour Wargames" rules but reduced the hits a unit could take down to 10 each. I fielded 10 Orc units and 9 Dwarfs. The Orcs took first turn and advanced in hopes of sacking the dwarf hold. The battle went well and ended with a Dwarf victory.

The "Dwarf Hold" is a terrain feature from the Dragonriders of the
 Styx playset.

The Dwarfs line up to defend their hearth and hall.

Warg Riders lead the Orc advance.

Dwarf crossbows rain death upon advancing Orc scouts.

The Orc shaman throws a fireball at the advancing Dwarf unit.

This Dwarf Handgunner unit rolled a 1 in shooting.
Which meant they caused 1 further casualty and are now out of ammo.

The Dwarf Thane leads the Dwarf Axe unit as it finishes
off the unit of Black Orcs.

Clever hit counters you got there. How did changing the number of units on the board change the game? Does it play about as fast, or did it slow things down?
