Orc-on-orc violence
We begin in media res. Grimnak the Orc Champion and a squad of Blade Gruts rush in to assault a group of Arrow Gruts and two Swog Riders. For some reason the Elf Archer Syvarris is assisting them.


Body count
Orc bodies pile up on both sides. After Grimnak dispatches one of the Riders, the sloping terrain and close quarters prevent him from doing anything other than inspire his companions to fight excellently.


Chomp!
Having destroyed both the opposing Orcs and Syvarris, more Blade Gruts advance to replace their fallen comrades. Grimnak, mindful of his large tail, backs up towards a group of Krav Maga Agents who have opened fire on the Orcs. One of them climbs a small hill to keep clear of Grimnak's powerful teeth, which have yet to thrash anyone! Little does she know that more Blade Gruts are coming up from behind...


Finis
The Blade Gruts, enhanced by their Champion, make quick work of the Agents. In the distance, Tornak, Me-Burq-Sa, and the Marro Warrios stand around. They regret that their vicious services were never required. Perhaps next time.

Edit: First two photos were reversed; added captions to last three images.

There's always a fun story to tell with this great game - thanks for sharing that!

It was neat to see some of the old original Master Set figures back in action against each other.

Lots of great memories from those early games we played here

I have Mallidon's Prophecy, Utgar's Rage, Orm's Return, the Nakita Agents, Spartacus, Crixus, and Retiarius from Thora's Vengeance, and Swarm of the Marro. However, many of the original figures remain strong even with all those expansions, so for me these "old-school" guys never left! I'm hoping to pick up the rest of Thora's Vengeance on eBay soon, if I can get them for a good price (not willing to pay more than about $20/package).

I do, and Portland is not that far from Denver - right?
