Very inspiring stuff here.

Imperal Guard Vs Space Marine Battle 2

Here is the after-actionreport from the second of my battles last Tuesday. It also resultet in a terrible defeat for the Imperial Guard, due to bad tactical decisions and even worse dicerolls.
However, it was a fun game and thought me some of the Imperial Guard strenghts and weaknesess (I am a very inexperienced player)

The Imperial Guard take up defensive positions as as their enemies deploy snipers in the nearby ruins and prepare for an armoured assault.

The first deaths of the battle have taken place. A well placed rocket sent hot shrapnel flying through the air killing 4 soldiers.

The Scout sniper cover their comrade while he reloads his rocketlauncher

The Imperial Guard sniper, Col. Konig takes aim and drops one of the Marines on the far hill.

"Keep up the fire, they must not get close, Fire Fire Fire!"
The defenders manage to blow up the whirlwind transport with accurate bolterfire

The passangers of the whirlwind crawl out of the wreck only to continue their furious assault on foot. They succsesfully cross the debris of the blasted Chimera that was destroyed in the opening stages of the battle along with its passangers.

The Maines clash with the Sentinels, and manages to destroy them. They continue to run through the smoke, towards the defensive lines. Col. Konig manages to scratch one of the attackers before they reach the lines and eventually destroy the dug in defenders.

Imperal Guard Vs Space Marine Battle 1

Hello Guys.
I played two games last evening - Both went terrible.
First of, thanks to my opponent - Chaptermaster Stennert of the "Poopmarine chapter" (Because of their poopbrown armour).
I got my ass handed to me because of terrible tactic decisions and terrble dicerolls. Score a maximum of 4-5 hits with the Sentinels who fired 6 multilaser shots in t0tal per round during 5 rounds. Anyway here is the first battle told in a narrative fashion.
Tell me what you think and stay tuned for battle number 2

The Imperial Guard deploy their heavy weapons in the centre of the field and send their Sentinels Scouting the left flank and their dreaded Armoured Fist squad on the right.

The Imperial Guard have taken their first casualties. In the center a rocket lands in the midst of the men and leave mess of blood, mud, and guts. On the right flank the Whirlwind takes aim at the approaching Chimera with the Imperial veterans and blasts it to the machinegod. It unloads its deadly marines who continue forward towards the wreckage and the surviving squad.

Sgt Stooner opens his eyes. The cabin inside the Chimera is filled with smoke - he is unable to move his arm. "Bloody Hell - All of you get out" He orders his men as he wraps an bandage around his wounded limb. The Veterans gather their scattered gear - at least what they can - and for up behind the wreck of the Chimera. Stooner orders his men to deploy and unleash a fussilade against the fast aproaching marines. The storm of lasshots together with the rays of plasma and melta decimates to marines to just a few. With burning zeal the remaining marines close in and before the inferno breaks loos, the last thing Stooner does se is the marine with the flamer taking aim. Every guardsman fall and those not dead by the flames is relieved of duty - the hard way.

The Whirlwind taks aim once again an manages to punch a hole in the front armour of one of the Sentinels and stops it in its tracks. The Sentinel pilot Milo manages however to climb out of the wreckage and takes refuge in the nearby hills and manages to get out alive after the action has setteled.

The Last Remnants of the Imperial Guard forces abandon their leader who eventually is killed by a brutal series of blows from a powerfist.

2 squads done

First 2 squads of the Space Wolf army are done. Feels really good to be finished with the first units. The customer seems satisfied and happy and therefore I'm happy. At first I was sceptical of the oldschool paintscheeme but it is really nice and in fact better than the new babyblue wolfs that GW is feeding us.

Here is a little series of me painting up a Gaunt model to use as a standard commissar.
Stay tuned for mor pics as the work progresses :)
