WAAAAAAAGH WAAAAAAAGH WAAAAAAAGH WAAAAAAAGH


Well hey, they'd found what they were looking for. This was a bit unusual for undead, though. These were... hm, tactics? And usually, the skelly boys were about as tactical as a... well, a greenskin. Usually. It felt just a little weird, really.

The Warlord would need to ponder that at a later point. Right now, they had a fight on their hands. Being surrounded and all that probably wasn't any good, though, not with these Runtz on hand. Whether or not they could take on all the undead, it was necessary to swing the battle a bit further in their favor - hence, they'd need to try and break through at least one side. Well, good thing the Warlord was good at shouting orders.

"COME ON, LADS!" the Warlord bellowed, imbuing his voice with all sorts of propa shouty magick, both compelling the Runtz to listen to him and granting them greater strength, tenacity, and morale in battle. "DIS YER FIRST REAL FIGHT! SHOW ME WHOT YA GOT AN' FOLLOW ME TER VICTORY! WAAAAAAAAAAAGH!"

Time to break out back the way they came. The Warlord charged into the horde of skellingtons, choppa in hand and ready to crush whatever was before him into bone dust.

Bolstered by the bellow, for most of the Runtz, it was the first time that they’d been subjected to the Warlord’s shouting magic. And like that, all the effort that WAAAAAAAGH had put into educating the potential Boyz went out the window.

Brimming with confidence and lacking the tempered skill of experience? WAAAAAAGH dove into the fray only to find that most of the young Orcs and Trolls accompanying him were scattering. Throwing themselves into as many Skeletons as possible as they sought to both show off to the Warlord and their fellows as well as finally have someone that wasn’t a Goblin or Kobold to beat up.

“WAAAAAAAAGH!” came the war cry as the Warlord charged, smashing into a Skeleton without pause and being more than a match for the Undead before him. Not that they were behaving like the usual Undead at the north, one sidestepping a swing and another trying to duck (only to end up decapitated). Rather, they were behaving almost like the Undead that the Warlord had seen towards the Ummie Fort of Taralon.

Shouts of joy as an Orc smashed into a skeleton, cries of rage and pain as one of the Runtz was stabbed in return as they’d underestimated their opponents being little more than animated corpses.

WAAAAAAAGH WAAAAAAAGH WAAAAAAAGH WAAAAAAAGH


whot

"FOLLOW ME WHEN YA FIGHT, YA GITS!" and this time the shout was comprised entirely of command, the same when the Warlord made the boyz just sit down.

Listen to the boss! Was he going to have to punch some faces in the middle of combat? He would if necessary!

Inspiration flowed through the Runtz, incensed to follow the Warlord’s more strict command rather than charging off to do their own thing. It wasn’t quite as effective as WAAAAAAAGH’s means of forcing people to sidooooown - or rather, as immediate. What it lacked in forcibility, it made up for with a side of subtlety. Leaving the young Greenskins with the belief that they could disobey WAAAAAAAGH, it was just not in their best interest to.

It probably had something to do with the recent bout of face-punching that had gone on.

Solitary charges into the mobilised Undead abated, the group of Orcs and Trolls slowly collecting themselves to turn to follow WAAAAAAAGH’s lead. Several Greenskins remained behind, wounded far too severely to continue fighting but most made it out with nothing more than knocks, scrapes and bruises.

Before WAAAAAAAGH, the Undead were forming up into ranks. It was almost as if they were engaged in the Ummie Imperial Tactics and trying to re-form to engage in a pincer movement. Undead, but very much behaving like the Undead at Taralon rather than those that the Warlord had found wandering through the Sherian mindlessly.

Hrm. This felt familiar.

It'd be best if they retrieved their dead and seriously wounded, since they'd only end up adding to the ranks of these skelly boys, but if they weren't careful they'd all end up dead anyway. The only solution was to enact more damage upon the undead then they could recover.

"SODOFF!" the Warlord bellowed loudly at those forming up ahead of him, imbuing a massive amount of force behind the shout and aiming the blast right into their ranks. Smash 'em apart with force, that was the way! And then lead the charge right through their shattered core! "WAAAAAAAAAAGH!"

Concussive force assailed the Undead, tearing apart the unseen magics that kept the various joints and appendages from falling apart as the Skeletons most obviously lacked skin, muscle and ligaments to keep themselves together. Bones rattled upon the ground en masse as with the singular shout? The ranks of Undead quite literally fell to pieces upon the ground.

The Runtz just looked confused, having gone from eager confidence in spite of the injuries and fatalities sustained to just poking at the fallen bones with their boots as if uncertain whether the Skeletons would rise again.

“Wot.” one grumbled, giving a femur a good kick as another Troll took the time to tie off a cut with a bit of torn fabric for a makeshift bandage.

"Wot." The Warlord hadn't just expected the undead to crumble like that, either.

What about the other undead still around them, though? Had they all fallen apart as well? How many of them were left?

Master Bard vs a bunch of old bones? The end result was still a bunch of old bones, only now they’d returned to being scattered about where they’d fallen after the impact of WAAAAAAAGH’s shout. Those that had been behind the Warlord had also crumbled into piles of ribs and femurs and the like, though admittedly a second or so after the Undead before the Greenskins had been blown away. None were left standing now.

Now the scene looked almost identical to when WAAAAAAAGH and the Runtz had first arrived in the area. Almost, but for some Greenskin blood shed and a few bodies of young Orcs and Trolls that wouldn’t be getting up anytime soon. Not without a Necromancer in the area at any rate.

“We win, Boss?” One questioned, quite confused by the fight being so abruptly brought to an end.

"...hrm." The Warlord honestly didn't know, either. In a general sense this was good, they'd crumbled the enemy and sustained minimal casualties. But at the same time he could sympathize with the Runtz that this hadn't been much of a scrap at all.

Still. They'd found something. The skelly boys around here were smarter than usual, and all the usual dumb dead boyz were gone. What did it all mean?

"Gavver up da dead," he pointed at a few of the Runtz. "We ain't leavin' 'em 'ere to become skelly boyz like the rest. Wasn't much a scrap but ye ain't all dead, so ya gitz got dat goin' fer ya. Dis weird biznes, though... I ain't likin' it."

In the meantime, he'd go and look at the rest of the undead, the ones that had collapsed after the ones the Warlord had blown to bits. Weird stuff, this. He'd see if he couldn't loot a few choice bones, maybe bring them back to the necromancer weirdboy and see if he had any clues.

“Can’t jus burn’em, Boss?” one of the Trolls asked curiously, mostly hoping that they wouldn’t have to lug around the corpses all the way back to the nearest Fort. “Or like, take jus da heads?” he added, thinking very much about light-weight/minimal work and not a whole lot of caring about the dead Greenskins in general.

They were dead and with Orok, what happened afterwards didn’t much matter did it?

Most of the Boyz though went about hefting the bodies up all the same as WAAAAAAGH too took some choice bones to take with him. None of the Undead ‘corpses’ moved, the piles of scattered bones remaining where they’d lain after the Warlord’s concussive shout.

"Wot, ya got somefin' to burn 'em with?" If the Warlord had set out with all of the equipment he could possibly take, he might've had the materials to set this place ablaze, sure. But lacking the ability to just randomly pull items out of nowhere like that (and who could do something like that, anyway?) they were stuck with just lugging the dead runtz back.

"An' what about the rest o' da bonez in dere, smart guy?" Head wasn't the only thing with bones in it. Leaving bones was bad. Hopefully the troll understood that he was pretty close to a face punching.

Right then. Get the dead, loot some of these once-moving-now-not bones, time to head back.

Rather than looking offended, the Troll only looked thoughtful as he began to pat down an assortment of furry pockets and rags as he considered what the Warlord was saying.

There was a bit of grumbling from the other Greenskins as they loaded themselves up with the dead, only for WAAAAAAAGH to hear a couple sharp cracks and then an embarrassed “Whoops.” From the Troll as the beginnings of a fire was already underway in the Sherian grasslands and looking quite impressive at that. Held in hand? A couple pieces of sharp flint.

“Fire?” Soon to be lots of fire, an out of control fire in fact as the ‘smart guy’ hadn’t quite thought far ahead at all. Thinking after all was for Bosses and Weirdboyz.

Actually, now that the Warlord thought about it, could bones be burnt into ash? Hmm. Probably depended on how hot the fire got.

Anyway, for now?

"LEGGIT!" Time to get out of here.

As fires went? It was a pretty good one. Within the summer months, the ground and brush was sufficient dry that it didn’t take long for things to escalate to the point where running away (or rather, charging in the other direction) seemed… prudent.

Orok perhaps was smiling upon the Greenskins though as they legged it out of there with the corpses of their fellows in tow along with a smattering of assorted Humanoid bones. The winds were not terribly strong with a south-easterly hue to them that at least ensured that the wildfire wouldn’t risk any of WAAAAAAAAGH’s holdings to the north.

Welp. It had been a weird scrap, but it had still technically been a scrap.

Time to get back, get any of the wounded Runtz patched up, toss the bones over to the necromancer weirdboy, and see what happened from there. Oh, and figure out something to do with the dead bodies. Eh... feed for the bouncy things?
