It feels like ages I played Warhammer 40k and my friend Håkan was not hard to convince to guide me into this "new" edition.
Its my favourite kind of 40k game, IG vs IG... Even the lousy guardsmen wounds the enemy on 4+... This usually means lots and lots of casualties...
Im using my Death Korps Assault Company.
We played 1500 points and after a dice roll it was decided I would be the attacker, this gave me the option to declare a "Farlone Hope" charge. An option I took. The Forlone Hope objective is represented by a Medical Servitor in this game.
My Company Commanders rolled previously on the Warlord trait table and because of preliminary bombardments have lover the cover save of that terrain piece to a 5+.
The Griffons had been given Carcass ammunitions so they weren't given even that...
The Watchmaster (Sergeant) led his two soldiers into the combat and the enemy Veteran was no more.
Big thanks Håkan for a terrific game. It was really nice to use the "new" objective cards that are drawn each turn, it adds another level to the game and makes it mutch more interesting.
And a special thanks for my friend Johan for his talk and work on his Renegade force that inspired me to dust of my Death Korps again.
