Anyway the battle was closely fought - I ended up winning by capturing and holding two of the loot counters with Greg having the other. The game really was a tale of two halves of the table - on one half I managed to dominate whilst on the other Greg did. So much so on each half/flank was clear of opposing troops. I just happened to clear the half that had two loot tokens in it.
So what did I learn? Well I stuffed the placement and use of my wraiths badly. That is the second time I've misused such good units in a game of KoW. I would also take a second horde of revenants next time to help shore up a flank as the one unit I had did an excellent job of that. So I would ditch the regiment of skeleton spears and horde of undead trolls next time I use undead. The revenant cavalry and vampire knights were brilliant though - those units won the game for me in the end.
Anyway I've crapped on enough - here are some pics with the odd comment as applicable.

|A major scrap|
|The ogres made a mess of my trolls and spear armed skellies|
|What was left of Greg's left flank after my vampire knights (I used chaos warriors for these) did their work|
|My skellies before they broke - they did get rid of a horde of ogres and held up another legion of them - so they did their job|
