Hi all, thanks for dropping by, I had a great narrative driven battle from the BRB, Blitz Scenario and thought I'd share some of the pictures and highlights. Not a Battle Report per se, they take ages to do and capture during the battle so rather than capture every move and what died etc. we just had fun and tried to remember to take a few photos along the way.
Above you can see the terrain set up, I did this envisaging an Imperial City and the borderlands, without rolling or deciding the mission first - by chance when my opponent arrived he suggested something along those lines and I looked in the BRB and found the Blitz scenario - one attacker, one defender, attacker won VPs if units were in the two Defender Deployment Zones, 1 VP for the Bunkers area, 2VPs each for the City zone. The Defender got a VP for every unit destroyed and Sustained Assault rules were in force - this suited our two sides, endless Necron Legion, Blood Angels defending the city...
The Necron force started in the desert, in the first 18in zone, then there was a 18in buffer I had to cross before getting to the Blood Angels front line. The Blood Angels would have to be cut down and win through attrition.
We roll for game end and roll a two - its a draw! That was a great game we both really enjoyed. The Blood Angel castle with two Scorpius is a deadly combo, but now with more ideas of how to counter it, I think I will have to get painting some more Wraiths and some deepstriking units to breach the castle!
I hope you enjoyed the report and pictures. Cheers, Siph.
