SBH Adventure: The Woodsman's Cottage

Three brave adventurers were hired by a wood cutter to rid his home of the four goblin invaders that had taken in it from him and his wife.  The three adventurers set forth, Kenos, the Half-Elf Wizard, Logar the Human Warrior and Pik the Halfing Slinger.  When they arrived at the cottage they found the goblins  returning from foraging in the nearby Black Forest.  "What luck, a fight in the open." Logar thought.

The two opposing warbands.
The wizard and warrior move forward for the fight, with the wizard wisely using the corner of the cottage as cover.  While Pik the Halfing is still mustering his courage to join the fight.
Wizard & Warrior both rolled 3 successes and moved long.   Halfling rolled 2 dice both failed.
The Goblin leader, Hursnak bullied his goblins forth to defend their prize.

Goblins advanced up. Logar begins to move forward long and ends in base contact with a goblin.
 Logar brings death down with his mighty sword and shield and fells a goblin.
The beads were used to show positive dice modifiers.
 Stunned by the ferocity of the human warrior and the bolts of lightening from the wizard the goblin leader fails to control his warband.  While Logar continues his assault.
Goblins fail to activate Logar fights on.

The Wizard attempts to aid Logar by transfixing his opponent.

But Logar seriously misjudges his swing and misses the transfixed goblin!
 Finally Pik has found his bravery and moves forward over 2 turns and launches a lead ball to the skull of a goblin knocking him down.
Halfling finally rolls good.
 Meanwhile Logar and his opponent continue to fight it out while the Goblin Leader is content to await the outcome.
Goblin activation rolls fail, combat ends in draw.

Wizard transfixes goblin again!
 The Wizard turns the air acrid with his arcane spell and transfixes Logar's opponent giving Logar another opportunity to smite the foul thing!
Gruesome kill!
 Seeing their companion slaughtered so viciously the goblins fall back to the forest.
Logar scowls at the goblins; taunting them to fight him.
 After Logar's taunt the goblins charge him together and combat with Logar striking down the leader!
I jacked this up, Logar killed the goblin but I was too preoccupied with taking the picture to fully understand what had happened resulting in a fallen model outcome.
 With the leader down and vulnerable Logar smote his ruin upon the hillside as the wizard moves in to assist.
Gruesome kill!
 With his leader and cousins slain the last goblin flees crying into the wilderness.
Three morale failures, BOOM. Bye Bye.

With the goblins dead and gone the adventurers escort the woodcutter and his wife back to their cottage and are thanked by having their weapons sharpened by the woodcutter and his wife made them all a great feast with apple pie for desert!  This was my first attempt at Solo-SBH.  I enjoyed it.
