Mathhammer Monday – Week 3 – Savage Orc Big ‘Uns

This week, I chose to pit the High Elves versus a unit of Savage Orc Big ‘Uns. They’re stats are vaguely similar to the Chaos Warriors (with the Frenzy adding the extra attack), without the armour and with increased Strength the first round, due to the Choppa rule.

Round 1 (Choppa bonus)

Round 1 (Choppa bonus)

This combat is fairly close, with the Sword Masters faring the best out of the elven units. This surprised me a little me because I remember having my Sword Masters hit a unit of these guys, and they were decimated. But now that I think about it, it was with the old book and there was a Waaagh! going on with a character in that unit, too. That definitely tipped the balance to the Orcs.

Round 2 (No Choppa)

Round 2 (No Choppa)

Round 2 looks much better for the elves. Obviously, the number of casualties inflicted remains the same, but the lower Strength of the Orcs for the 2nd round tips the balance in favor of the elves. Unfortunately, there is always a 1st round of combat, but not always a subsequent one…
