The only hope that the Frostwings have now is to try to capture their home terrain using help from the campaign army.
Frostwings 1st March
They try to manoeuvre again.
The Rapid Growth re-roll does not add any more manoeuvre results to the Treefolk roll.
Frostwings 9 to 19 from the Treefolk. The terrain stays at face 4.

They manage just 3 results. Enough to cast a magic drain.
Possibly too little too late.

If they fail, that will be useful!
They manage 0 results against the Treefolk’s 0 results.
