Continuing on with our story ... please read Part 1 if you haven't already !
From the previous chapter, the Marquis de Chenoncoix had managed to press home an attack on the township using skeletal hordes that he summoned up from beyond the Grave.
Despite the enormous odds in numbers arrayed against them, the French and Irish musketeers had managed to hold their line and meet the approaching hordes with musket and cannon fire.
Today then, we continue on with the terrible events that followed .....
|Taking the opportunity of an unprotected left flank, the skeletal knights make good progress across the open plains and head in a wide circle to the left to come in behind the defenders.|
|The pale rider on the pale horse gives the command to his mounted knights to swing behind the main force in the centre and begin the envelopment of the left flank.|
|Meanwhile the defenders continue to hold their line at the edge of the Township and pour volley after volley into the advancing horde.|
|What the ? This was definitely NOT part of the plan !|
|On the left flank, the impetuous Knights of Death smell fresh human flesh in the farmyard.|
They trot directly into the face of musket volleys to get closer to their prey.
|Hieronymous Firth shuffles forward from the graveyard and effectively takes command of the left wing of the undead army.|
|"Ph'tagn muhlyeh remyalu n'koso" he orders the Knights. Centuries of banishment from the earth has left the demon sorcerer impatient for action .. and hungry. for blood.|
