I played my Death Korps of Krieg Assault Brigade and teamed up with a friend using a D Korps Siege Regiment. We had each 1000pts to compete against the others 2000pts armies.
This campaign was a sort of test run for a larger campaign that is planed for this summer and we were more then happy to help the organizers to test out some scenarios and the whole thing with running an campaign.
The scenario we played was a sort of breakthrough, with a force trapped in the centre and needed to move at least half of his force out of one short table edge. My ally and I deployed our forces along the short table edges and needed to cut his breakthrough short.
Some spectators made jokes about German Panzers vs Polish cavalry about now.
The cavalry squadron closest are about to charge head on into that Leman Russ, the next squadron have moved up in position between the three Chimeras and a infantry squad led by a Watchmaster you should keep an eye after in this game, packing krak grenades are moving in one of the Chimeras
The Leman Russ was taken out and one Death Rider got wounded in the explosion.
One Chimera was taken out in the shooting phase and that ment that the other squadron of Death Riders found a prey in the now footslugging guardsmen.
The last Death Rider issues an duel to the clunking behemoth, it will pay for his fallen comrades.
Mean while a enemy armoured Sentinel formation are seen walking and armed with lascannons trying to get a clear shot on the other Death Rider squadron.
Some would say that that is overkill to hunt horsemen with antitank guns, I say that the enemy is really afraid and this means I have the advantage and a moral victory.
Seen here on a very close dive bombing run...
The Veteran Company commander knows his time is up and thanks his men for their unconditional faith and loyalty.
If you want something dead, be sure to kill it...
Surviving lasgun fire and plasma gun fire, he survived a stray bomb from one of our Avengers, shrapnel fire from an exploding chimera and so on. At one time they even tried to run him over using a tank shocking Chimera.
This is one nasty mofo...
I think that Watchmaster has earned the right to be given a name as is the custom with the Death Korps, at first they are just serial numbers. Any suggestions of a name is welcome.
A mightily success, the enemy formation is broken and his breakthrough attempt is stopped.
Army formations are moved on the campaign map and new scenarios are choosen to represent these actions.
The Death Korps are assigned a assault upon an enemy fortification. To our help we are also assigned some kind of bio monsters to our aid.
The monsters are to act as the first wave and we are to act as reinforcement coming in closely behind.
We also know that the fortification is held by some kind of super sub humans and a mechanised company from the same formation that we previously got attacked by is to reinforce them.
But lets take a pause from that now and look at another of the tables that where used this day.
Here are some pictures of the table next to us.
An Eldar player aided by Marines was assigned some imperial PDF troops and was to hold a trench line against twice his points of Tyranids and Chaos.
But as a spectator this is a really cool looking battle field with trenches overrun, vehicles set ablaze and large monsters swarming the place.
But back at our table...
Lets just say that even though the Terminators and their Commander did manage to take down many a Korpsmen, trading casualties for time, space and Victory is what we do best...
With his crème de la crème stuck and slowly grinded down the rest of the table was ours for the taking.
A really big thanks for the organizers and all persons taking time to make this a really fun day at the club here in Växjö
