Aeldari vs Astra Militarum – 1,500 Points

Two games in a week! What! I do t think this has ever happened before! It’s Aeldari vs Astra Militarum today at 1,500 Points at Boards and Swords again. Mission The mission was Tactical Objectives, Deadlock. Draw six cards turn one then up to five on turn two, up to four on turn three, etc. Stratagems cost double Command Points from turn three onwards. This leads to a lot of pressure and action towards the start of the game. If you can’t score early on, you won’t score. Deployment I finished deploying last of course. Greg, my Aeldari enemy, chose […] The post Aeldari vs Astra Militarum – 1,500 Points appeared first on Warhammer 40K Blog.

Battle Report: Arena Rex 9/15/2018 Ludus Magnus vs Legio XIII

Last night my son and I played our first 5v5 game of Arena Rex.  Yesterday morning I quickly assembled 'Septimus' for my Ludus Magnus Cohort, and 'Sulla', 'Valen' for my sons Legio XIII Cohort.  With 'Nero' already being completed, we were now able to play a 5v5 game.Scenario: MunusA classic match evolved from funeral traditions, the Munus is a standard combat between equally matched cohorts.Deployment: Cohorts deploy in base contact with their controlling player’s arena edge.Cohorts: Both players bring cohorts of equal value.Restrictions: NoneVictory Conditions: The last player with models remaining in the arena is the victor.As with all my previous games (but 1) my original 3 Ludus Magnus models went down pretty quickly, but it was 'Nero' and 'Septimus' that changed the game for me and pulled out the victory.  Slowly but surely I was able to bring down all of the Legio XIII.  I actually do have to give some credit to 'Micon', at least in this game he was able to

Battle Report – “Training Day” – Skirmish Sangin

Man, it’s been a while since I got some figures on the board. The last battle report was way back in March (where the M-ATV got blown up) and work has been mad. So, why not get the giant table out and put those Humvees to good use. With the ongoing situation in the breakaway Tribal regions, the Aden Defence Force (or ADF) has started preparing a new strategy to deal with cross-border insurgents close to Bazistan. After constructing several FOBs, ADF units now patrol the countryside. To assist these units, several ISAF-AP nations have assigned small units to provide training and force multipliers.This activity has begun to take an effect on the insurgency, prompting one group in the region to plan an ambush. Hiring in an expert bomb maker and several local fighters, the group’s aim is to eliminate an ADF patrol and dishearten the rest of the government’s forces in the region.On the road between FOB Alpha and FOB Delta, a new ADF squad and it’s support will have a trial by fire.Briefi

Holding the Ford – The Second Boer War

I’ll freely admit, my wargaming tastes can be pretty focused on playing the modern period. I think it’s mainly due to finding large scale battles just dull. Don’t get me wrong, they are plenty impressive (I still get a kick out of seeing them all lined up) but it’s not particularly interesting to play. I’ll probably be thrown out of the wargaming world for saying this but it just normally ends up with blocks of forces being slammed into each other. As things become more modern, the importance of each small unit increase, up to the modern day where a fireteam of four men is the tactical unit of choice. On the other hand, I do also enjoy the more social side of wargaming. After the last few weeks which have been lacking in dice rolling and tape measuring, I just had to jump in on a game. So when I noticed Angus (of Edinburgh Wargames fame) grabbing the terrain I usually pick, I just had to get involved. The setting is Second Boer War, some time in the early 20th century.
