Fred and I played a game of 2nd edition 40k with 1000 pts lists

A platoon of Dark Angels was given the task to teach an Ork warband a lesson after the Orks had not fulfilled their part of their mercenary conctract. They should have fought for the empire as mercenaries and had gotten a lot of gold to do so. But at a vital moment no Orks ever turned up...

Dark Angels were to grab the gold again and possibly catch the Ork Warboss (secondary objective). The Orks were just to survive.

The Angels are landing

I got a lucky strategy card: Malfulction. A marine missile launcher blew up in the face of it's firer.

Image The sniper rifles were quite hard to the Orks. My poor weird boy just died without further notice. So did a lot of the orks. Future lesson must be to keep the weird boy at the back... in a mob!

Image
The big battle of the game stood between the lots in this photo. My dreadnought eventually joined the fight (and when the Warboss bit the dust it ran off with the tail between it's legs)

Image My grots were desperately trying to use their smasha gun on the enemy leader but it had little effect.

Image
My Shokk Attack gun wasn't able to do much either. In fact I think mos of my guns were wanting to fire at enemy machines but in a 1000 pts game there aren't any!


Anyway I lost hands down. It was a good game and the selection of troops I had brought was rather poor against an all infantry force with no vehicles. Lesson learned! :blackeye

OK I've tried editing this again and again and apparently the forum doesn't automatically resize, I can't manually resize (by add width and height to the IMG tag) and the pictures on my picasa are too large. Whatever.

Life is too short for that kind of business. :chaos

Yes. You just have to resize the pics before uploading them.

Yeah, well, picasa doesn't let me do that. Photobucket let's me choose between 640 and 800... neither of which are optimal. :-o

Aaaanyway, I'm sure we can all make a circle and get along. :D


I've got two reports more, which are a bit more thorough, in the works.

They'll appear on my blog here: http://clovermilk.blogspot.com soonish.

I'll make sure to post here as well, as it seems to be the proper 2nd edition gaming centre of the internet. :guns02

We're a group of some 8 people still slugging along with the old retro rules. Although to me, they're not retro anymore... it started out as such, but now they're just the actual rules we use. Nothing retro about it. :-)

You got me wrong. You have to resize the pics before uploading them onto picasa or photobucket. All my pics here are photobucket or pix8.net

Whats the story behind the explosion clouds? Is there a light inside them or is that a photo shop effect?

Either way, very cool!

They're fake tea lights incased in a tuft of artificial fish tank filter wool. :borg
