Why thank you, you honor me with your words, both of you

Anyways BIG update
So Ive had a bunch of fun with these goblins hanging around my fort
So I tell my dwarves to hang out near the fortifications so they can shoot at the gobbos, but instead they engage in this rather retarded staring contest
Well time passes by and a new season starts, and still no work can be done because the damn goblins keep on shooting at my bridge workers
So yeah then I realize that I had my marksguys stationed as 10/10 instead of 3/10 so they were all like
'Recruit: Im outa ammo, Im gonna go get some
Militia Captain: ALL OF US NEED TO BE HERE... IF YOU GO I KILL U!!!
I fix that then
ok so they were attracted by the merchants leaving
My marksdudes catch up just in time
So my dwarves end up scaring the goblins away by shooting at them
So they ran away and I opened the gates. There were 2 dead dwarves out there, so the first thing my legendary soap maker did, was run out and try to get their socks
So yeah there they were, minutes after they just ran off the map, another ambush. Cool story bro
anyways they got into my fort so I did what any good dwarf would do, I sicked ALL of my archers on them at once. So yeah, probably so many bolts were fired, it would make an elf cry. Anyways I found out two things, always patrol the walls before opening the gates and my dwarves are probably the PERFECT evil villain troops. They made about 10% of the shots shooting off a few hundred bolts at least. I was able to pawn off alot of wood off the merchants, so its all good.
Here is a pic of my dwarves shooting at this one lone goblin who was chasing around the farm animals in my fort
Imagine a constant stream of bolts going at that goblin and ALL OF THEM MISSINGPic of bolts that fell a z level and didnt go in the ocean
Ok so this one lone goblin, who is he?
Well he is some sort of badass with iron platearmor on, so he is all but impervious to my archers shooting pointy sticks. Well what happens is he runs around for like 3 minutes chasing farm animals while getting shot at by tons of arrows which are probably hitting the poor farm animals the whole time. Well eventually my soldiers managed to catch up to him and tackle him.
So then there are like 4 soldiers with maces and hammers beating on this goblin with iron armor, and there are 24 archers pelting him with blunt sticks from far away. So he is just on the ground rolled up like 'STOP HITTING ME!' while my dwarves are just beating on this poor scrawny goblin. So my archers run out of ammo, and he is still alive, so they come up and start nailing him with their crossbows. Yeah, he became unconscious and regained consciousness a few times too.
The sad thing is that my archers probably got more xp from this exercise than all the time they spent training
wrapping up a few loose ends:
the legendary soaper didnt make it, nor did he get the socks he wanted
a dog came out of no where and attacked a goblin, only to be beat down by all of them at once
'Army' the militia captain / weaponsmith got stabbed in the guts and is now in critical in the hospital (lol get it, he makes arms and is in the military so his name is army)
The dog didnt make it

Oh yeah, forgot to mention that I saw this explosion, and then like 7 teeth threw out of this goblin's mouth along with a bunch of blood
