I started with my most recent Orc build but swapped out the two AxeOrcs with two Goblin Bomb chuckers, and this was to face an army that had no large or colossal units that were overly susceptible to artillery fire. The army was the Dwarves of Runegard.
I was also trying out my new session report technique of using picmonkey to diagram the movement of the units rather than a series of fotos which can be difficult to follow and rarely include pics of every turn. Now Orcs v Dwarves is not my favorite matchup because it tends to be light on maneuver, but maybe this was better for a first go with the new technique. I'm planning on doing some 1000pt battles, which tend to be very maneuver focused, to try and really showcase the possibilities.
After printing out the map to diagram the turns, it occurred to me how ink thirsty a dark green mapboard printout is. In the future I will use picmonkey to lighten and even black and white the printout which will make it use less ink and easier to read and mark up. Of course, the posted pics will be in full color!
I can dispense with the usual Order of Battle for the report, as the setup foto is clearly labeled. The dwarves spent 1988 pts, to the Orcs 1999. Dwarves moved first.

I'm curious what people think of the Picmonkey battle report. I'm getting faster at doing it, so that's a plus. This battle didn't involve a lot of movement and maneuvers. In the future I might switch to more pictures, but each picture has to be relabeled and that gets very time consuming. Just adding arrows is the fastest way to go, but if the battle involved a lot of maneuver it would get too confusing to sort out. Probably somewhere in the middle with just a few pictures would be the best bet. What do you think?
