The situation started with an alarm call from the colony Baxta 1 on Yx dated 847.M41/132l. Colonist claimed that Orks had overrun their settlement and taken hold in the settlements amasec producing facilities.
Amasec is of vital importance in this sector as it is the main channeling substance for Imperial righteousness and belief.

Inquisitor Gar and a retinue of Space Marines was sent to the planet to investigate.

The initial report of the Inquisitor is represeneted below.

+++Incomplete Report from Inquisitor Gar, planet Yx, the Coldburn Sector+++

Date 847.M41/244

Snippet is missing due to intersystem E-field disturbances.

"...The colonists have therefore decided to flee the settlement. Production of amasec has completely ceased. The production must be restored before riots ensue. The Orks present in the settlement seem to hail to the Warlord called Batshit. An assault has been prepared for 847.M41/300 which is the annual Ork shooting festivity. They Orks should be drunk by then."

+++Report ends+++


Setup: 6'*4' table. The Orks have just been having a terrific time doing a shooting contest (live targets of course!) south of the Hell City and just as they head back to drink some more amasec the marines arrive from the north. 5 crates of amasec is deployed in the amasec facility.

Deployment zones: 12'' in from the long table edge, but 12'' from away from the narrow edges.

Terrain: A vast desert scape with death world cactii and post apocalyptic shanty buildings. The amasec facility is located in the middle of the board.

Forces: 2000 pts, Orks and Marines. Allies allowed.

Objectives:
Marines: Primary. Secure the amasec facility (5VP). Secondary: Get the drunken Orks out of town! (1 VP for each completely destroyed/off board Ork unit)

Orks: Primary: Secure da amasec krates! (1 VP pr crate with an Ork unit at the end of the game). It takes two Orks to carry a crate. THese can do nothing else.
Secondary objective: Show some shoota skills! For each 3 marines killed with shooting. 1 VP

No other VP are awarded.


Special Rules: Drunken Orks. The Orks have been drinking and shooting all day. Before movement each turn roll 1d6 for each Ork unit. On a 1 the unit will move 2d6 in a random direction. If it is a vehicle check for collision.
If it brings it into contact with an enemy unit it counts as charged.
Affected drunken units (those that rolled a 1) ignore all psychology rules for the turn they're affected.

The battle raged a bit back and forth, the Orks started out pretty good (even though most vehicle crews were drunk from turn one. An out of control Wartrak managed to shoot a direct hit on the Librarian and gave him 12 wounds or something like that. Luckily the Medic near by managed to revive him to one wound and after that the Medic and the Librarian camped out in cover sending out loads of Psychic Smite to the Ork hordes.

On the left flank the Inquisitor was standing half the game looking the wrong way, but when he decided to join the battle he singlehandedly wiped out the Ork Commandos. Not that it had much influence to the general game, but I guess it was outweighed by Warboss Batshits decision to sit back and forget to do anything for the first two turns too.

A Marine Squad had decided to take cover in the building opposite to the Amasec Brewery, but when they had positioned themselves in the building it took a hit from a Leman Russ battle-canon and everyone was falling around inside and did not do much good in this game.

I think in the end the battle was probably won by the Marines. The Amsec Brewery had been secured and most of the Ork vehicles had been destroyed, but had the game continued a few turns more it is hard to tell what could have happened.

The game was long, chaotic and great fun, so if this is setting the standard for my 2014 gaming year I will look forward to what other old school adventures we will experience.

OH. MY. GOD.

That has to be the most awesomest battle report I have seen for sometime. Your shanty town is totally inspiring (consider it stolen ;) By the way, where or how did you do the corrugated metal sheets?)

Seeing all these old Rogue Trader minis, of the Orks and Marines has revived my interests. I shall now double my efforts to get a game like this going.

And Drunken Orks. THAT IS AWESOME!!! I am literally kicking myself for never thinking of doing this myself!
