As promised here is the round up of the Vidar's Fate campaign weekend.
Game 1 vs Chaos
the gun line awaits the advancing chaos.
The helldrake is followed onto the table by Lt. Rook.
Unfortunately the thunderbolt's shooting fails to come up to proof and fails to damage the demonic beast.
The game ended in a resounding victory for the Guard. The most destructive force for the other side proved to be my own Leman Russ which kept getting puppet mastered...
Game 2 1k per person doubles with Gravis vs orks and chaos
My mounted infantry platoon starts in reserve, while Gravis' forces set up across the battlefront.
The ork army mounted on bikes, grot tanks and buggies races forwards.
Gravis' advanced platoon moves towards no mans land and an objective
The Thudd guns took a heavy toll on the opposing forces. With 8 S5 templates a turn no foe was safe.
Wazdakka and his bikes race forward under a torrent of fire from the Praetorians.
The grot tanks advance and fire to great effect on Praetorian infantry, causing considerable damage with their template weapons.
The infantry platoon arrives from reserve to lend its fire to tackling the horde of greenskin bikers.
The Thunderbolt arrives to tackle the grot tank problem.
The game ends with another convincing Praetorian victory. The entire chaos ork army had been destroyed.
Game 3 vs Guard
A guard v guard encounter played hammer and anvil . A rather curious set up as we both just set up at optimum range and prepared to unleash hell. This was a kill points mission so plenty to kill on both sides.
With some horrendous rolling on my opponents part and lucky rolling on my part it very quickly became apparent this wasn't going to end well for my opponent. My armour quickly set to work destroying his advance units.
Outlflanking sentinels arrive...
and another... and they both miss with everything...
The thunderbolt does what fliers do best... destroy hydras before they even get to shoot.
Needless to say it was a Praetorian victory. It was wrapped up in record time with my opponent failing to take a single hullpoint off a vehicle despite a fair few hits. The blobbed infantry platoon with a commissar lord running off the table after taking just a few casualties kinda summed it up.
The speed of the previous game gave me the opportunity to check up on my red coated brothers and get a couple of photos of them against the nid horde.
Bring it down!
So at the end of day 1 I had racked up 3 impressive victories.
The next post will feature the painting competition which will be followed by the final part bringing you pictures from a game against necrons and the apocalypse game...
