The Immortals wacked a Hexhunter and Hakaar doing a point or two onto the Carnivean with Vengence. Zaal activated and feated, putting out a few synder spirits doing minimal damage and safe Guard on himself. Hakaar went to work on the Carnivean and got some help from a Guardian and the last Nihilator, leaving the Beast with two boxes in his body spiral. Having exhausted a fair amounts of Ancestral Rage tokens. On ther guardian engaged the other Warbeast and took him down to half his health. The Immortals tried to hit the Raek but only did a few points on the light warbeast but they did take out it's body aspec. The Brute went up an killed some hex Hunters and the Sorceress that damaged Zaal last turn. The Gladiator moved forward and killed a Hexhunter and a stinger having jammed himself into the middle limitens his actions severly. The commander charged the Scythean but doing just a few points of damage. Lastly the Kovaas activated and charged a Hexhunter, threshered and killed four. Needing his activation and the Skorne turn.
Bethayne upkept carnivore but let Ashen veil drop. Bethayne activated and healed the mind and spirit of the Carnivean and the body on the Scythean. Then put Ashen veil on herself. The hex Hunters charged the Remaining Immortals and Bayal charging the Kovaas, the Immortals fell, as did the Kovaas (a hit that would have killed him outright, negations the error we made earlier). The battle wizarding hexbolts Killing the standard Bearer. The Carnivean activated and killed Hakaar, a Guardian and the a Nihilator. The Sorceress on the right glidning up and shooting at the commander but failing to damage him or the Guardian hit in the spray.

The pot having gathörnen some corpsetokens put out yet another stinger and both the Stingers charged the Gladiator, doing good damage. The Raek jumped and killed a Beasthandler and another model. Blackfrost Shard went next Sevryn walking towards the Kovaas, while Rhylyss and Vysarr engaged the gladiator.

Next the Forsaken walked up, having gathered five fury during previously turns and bombed, getting both the Brute, with two fury on him, the last Immortals and the gladiator, with three fury on him. E Brute took some damage and the Immortals crumbled. The gladiator having been hit by Kiss of Lyliss, took a die minus 9 hit, rolling: 4,4,5,6,6 and landning 16 damage died quite horribly.
Zaal scooted over and put up safeguard and inviolable Resolve on himself, the rest of the army took hit where they could but failing to do much hurt on the Legion forces having lost their greatest threath to Bethayne when the gladiator perished.
The hex Hunters charged the Brute, Bayal hitting and Killing him in one swift stroke. A stinger then charged a Beasthandler protecting Zaal, but also. Accidently engaging Zaal as well. Even. Using the handler, but bought an attack and then hit and killed him. Blackfrost Shard went up and engaged Zaal, landning Kiss and a ice cage, the last ice cage missing and hitting the stinger instead. Then Belphagor activated and slithered into combat with Zaal, boosting to hit the two initials and buying an attack left Zaal lying dead in the ditt and gaining Bathayne her second victory in the history of my endevours.
