The Battle of Armageddon

Yesterday we had an APOC game.  It was a re-enactment of the battle of Armageddon.  The one little catch is that the orks were outnumbered 2-1 on the main board.  On the main board were 2 stompas, a skullhammer and giant squigoth. unfortunately there were 2 warhound titan on the Space Marine side and a ton of tanks. If that was not impressive enough, the ork had 12 of the new planes to come in and cause havok. 

 On a separate board was a defense laser. This was orks vs Sisters.  the one catch was the orks had to walk on.  The problem was it it immposible for 5000+ orks to walk on the short edge of board.  Especially when most of the edge was blocked by difficult terrain. Also the sisters were ready to pounce and bog down the first wave so they had no room to move forward to make room for the second wave.

The last board was a zone mortalis rules board.  Due to the Queen's diamond jubilee the Forge World was delayed so we used a few space hulk tiles to make up that board.  This board pitted the orks vs the grey knights with a few iron fist terminators entering into the battle later in the game.

A big thanks to Fantasy books and Games for hosting and thanks to Ben for letting me borrow his Kustom Stompa (the blue and silver one). A link to more pictures can be found here

Well that is all for today.  Happy Monday Everybody!!
