Free People vs Sylvaneth

This was my first battle using the Generals handbook. I was commanding a mixed force of Free peoples and Stormcast eternals, and was facing the Sylvaneth and The Everqueen herself. The scenario was Blood and Glory which meant holding four objectives in four corners of the board. Starting from round three, if any player held all four objectives, a major victory was scored. If a player held more objectives than the opponent at the end of the game, a minor victory was scored.


The Sylvaneth army


Treelord Ancient

Spirit of Durthu



3x10 Dryads


The Free people army

King Louen

Celestial Hurricanum

Freeguild General

Knight Vexillor

20 Freeguild guard

10 Freeguild guard

30 Freeguild crossbowmen

10 Paladin Retributors




The entire Sylvaneth army, except 10 dryads, set up on the Free people left flank. The Free people army sets up directly across, with the Freeguild guard at the front. The right flank is held by the small unit of guardsmen.


Battle round 1



Sylvaneth 1


The Sylvaneth army bundles up and moves into one of the wyldwoods on the Free people left flank. Ten dryads move up the right flank.


Free people 1


The Free People line trundles slowly towards the Sylvaneth, getting within 20” to fire off some shots at the Spririt of durthu in the woods. The spirit has a 2+ armor save, rerolling ones and shrugs off the shots.


Battle round 2


The Free People win the initiative, but decide to give the turn away. A crucial mistake as it turns out.


Sylvaneth 2


Drycha charges forward and fires off her Swarm of squirmlings at the Freeguild crossbowmen, killing 22 of them. Alarielle moves forward and throws the spear of Kurnoth at the hurricanum, dealing 6 wounds.


Alarielle and Drycha then crash into the Freeguild line, wiping out the unit entirely.


Free people 2


The Vexillor summons the power of the stormbringer pennant and moves the retributors within charge range of the dryads and the two treemen still left in the wood. The power of the pennant and the shemtek storm from the hurricanum kills 8 dryads. The retributors decide to charge into the treeman ancient. King Louen tries to charge the other dryad unit, but fail the charge, needing a five, and is left hanging on the left flank.


The retributors put some wounds on the treemen, but not enough to kill anyone of them.


Battle round 3


Things are looking grim for the Free people. The main line of units have been wiped out, and the retributors are fighting an uphill battle against the treemen in the woods.


Sylvaneth 3


Alarielle and Drycha charge the Freeguild general and the Knight Vexillor hiding in the left corner, protecting one of the objectives. The dryads on the right flank walk the spirit paths over to the left flank, securing the objective in their own territory.


The vexillor and the general are killed. The retributors continue to fight the treemen.


Free people 3


King Louen charges the branchwych, but fails to kill her. The hurricanum kills the dryads on the right flank with a combination of shemtek storms and comets. The retributors kill the treeman.


Battle round 4


The free people control the bottom right objective, and thanks to the king, the top right objective is contested.


Sylvaneth 4


Alarielle flys back towards her own territory, getting ready to shoot at the retributors and charge King Louen. The King kills the branchwych.


Free people 4


The hurricanum move in front of the objective on the right. The king bravely retreats from Alarielle, still contesting the objective.


Battle round 5


The Sylvaneth now control two of the four objectives, and the only Free people forces left are six brave swordsmen, the King and the celestial hurricanum.


Sylvaneth 5


The Spirit of Durthu walks the spirit path, jumping from the wyldwood on the left flank to the wyldwood on the right flank, in front of the hurricanum. However, he fails the charge and is left standing in the wood. The queens spells kill King Louen, turning him to a pretty wildwood, and shooting takes care of the last remaining retributors.


Free people 5


The free people choose to bravely guard their objective, not moving at all.


The battle ends in a minor victory for the Sylvaneth, since they control three of the four objectives.
