Imperial Guard Trailers (Skorcha Conversion)

The most recent Forgeworld newsletter showed off some new Imperial Guard trailers which are perfect for additional scenery and scenario potential to the battlefield.

I suspect I am not the only Ork player who has thought about using the fuel tanker as the basis for an Ork Skorcha conversion!

Hopefully they will release them in epic scale as well (which will then make them perfect for my Ork Airfield Defence Force).

Fighting Withdrawal

New Warhammer 40K battle report added to website…

This was an interesting game. Simon had just finished his 40K scale Forgeworld Valkyrie and wanted to use it in a game. Knowing his “luck” I expected that the Valkyrie would fly in and one of my grots would take a shot and shoot it down… at which point Simon would be slightly annoyed!

Therefore I created this scenario which has forty Imperial Guard, with Heavy Weapons, a Tarantula Sentry Gun but no tanks. They would be dug into one end of the table and their objective was to get at least twenty troops off the table.

They would be taken off table by a flight of Valkyries that would fly in, strafe the Orks before landing, allowing the Imperial Guard to embark and fly off.

My Orks job to stop all this!

See the report.

Battle Report

Well it would have been if the camera battery hadn’t failed

I was hoping to bring you a photographic battle report between Orks and Imperial Guard, however it seems that my digital camera has a faulty battery and thus “failed”.

You can see some of the pictures I took here.

The game went really well (for the Orks) but it was close. We played the Take and Hold scenario and after six turns a single grot and a few Orks held the objective.

It was the first opportunity for my Ork Grot Bomb Launcha on the battlefield and it failed miserably “bouncing” off the frontal armour plate of an Imperial Chimera.

My opponent put on his Medusa which was rather nasty…
