And in the midst of the Border Princes, as Tomb Kings closed their skeletal claw around Spike Hole, the Skaven fought hard and bitterly. Again the power of the Arcane Fulcrums cascaded from the ground but again, the defending force were pressed to maintain control of it.

Mike (Tomb Kings) vs Tim (Spider Goblins)
But again in the south, scant miles from the gates of Barak Varr, the Chittering Horde finally outstretched itself. Drawing might from a new tome of ancient knowledge (the new Tomb Kings army book), the undead legion suddenly recovered the might that they had once used to slay every last dwarf in the Dwarfen City of the sea.

It did not matter how great their strategy and how powerful their magic, the skeleton warriors showed no mortal weakness and an immortal strength.
Chaos Daemons (Tim) vs Wood Elves (Gill) - Massacre
And so evil battled evil, waxing and waning as the fates decried and in the north, the spiteful Elves of Linwe skipped into battle with those most unholy of enemies, the Daemons of the Pernicious Gate.

Bloodwood Drakes soared into the air to destroy the things before them but flames cast high brought the first one low before it had even the chance to roar.
