Last night we convened in the Ilko Gaming Hut for some quality 40K action back on Ilkestan 4. If you look it is a binary star leading to dual shadows of the desert plains (happy GB?). Those of you following the blog will note the ever changing Mats as GB buys up the EU surplus of battle mats.
Tom starts deploying his Orks top left, GB top right with the Genestealers and I take bottom left with Crimson Fist Space Marines.
GB vowing to play a canny skulking game, charges straight at Tom!
The thin blue line lead by Pedro Kantor!
Tom bunkers down ready for the purple onslaught
First strike Tom wellies his kans into the stealers.
More genestealers wash around the shores of Tom’s defenses.
This is supposed to be an arty shot showing a lictor hiding in a ruined corridor
GB throws more bodies at the orks
The Kans cannot stand against such overwhelming odds
Tom is almost done as all but forgotten I start to trudge up the table!
Poor old Burna Boyz are surrounded on all sides. Can they burn their way out.
My Dread, largely unopposed wanders onto the objective and wins an undeserved and hollow victory.
We all had fun but the rule of whoever GB throws his Genestealers at means the other player wins holds true. I was a spectator for it and felt bad for shooting up Tom as without me destroying his large ork unit from afar he might have weathered the GS storm better. I think we might need to think harder on this or (heaven fore fend) get a fourth member of the group *cough Andy!
