Fourth Playtest

I added a Mage, Orc Paladin and a Hero to the mix this time around. I also increased the command dice to 6. The playtest left me feeling a little funny though. The Mage was took out by Orc Shooters. The Paladin died as expected, and the Hero seemed...not. Finally the Orcs won the field by killing the General of Men in battle. The battle did result in a few rule changes and additions which means the playtest was a success. I need to review how I expect a character type units to behave in battle, especially in defeat.

Orc Invaders.

Defenders of Men

Orc general leads his warband from behind.

The Mage ascends the hill.

The Orc Paladin bites it.

Orc Archers struck down the mage.

A lone unit of Knights attempts to slow the Orcs.
