It was high noon, yes noon. Us old buggers game and drink before alot of people are even awake. Its how we roll, and we shut er down by 8pm. So Lance and I as some of you might remember met in the last 40 kegger in epic beat down. Its not my fault my Orks ran into a fortress of redemption that had no doors or ladders and could only be entered from lances side. So it funneled my Orks into two nice neat shooting galleries. Thus, green goo was splattered everywhere.
But this time THIS time would be different, I would pants him! Or so I thought.
Lance was kind enough to pick up some Innis & Gun German beer. We both really enjoyed it despite being more hard liquor drinkers. Mine was made in rum barrels and had a bit of a hickory rum flavor alot like tint of Capt. Morgan. It was very good and I would recommend trying it out.
Now on to the battle!
We deployed diagnol deployment. With 3 objectives (mysterious), slay the warlord, line breaker, first blood all that good stuff.
Then we rolled for warlord traits or at least Lance did. I decided that Orks dont care about warlord traits (mental note roll for warlord trait). I cant remember what Lance even got, because well Orks dont care about warlord traits.
Space Marines get to move first. By first I mean the entire 10 man terminator squad, yeah thats right 10 man terminator squad decide to shoot at my DeffKopta's.
The result? No more Deff Kopta's. First blood goes to Lance via a gigantic fireball. Then some Space Marine from Lance's house (aka just in range) decides to shoot one missle at my Trukk....through tree's.
Ghazskull's ride gets nuked.
I rolled a 6 on the Trukk Ramshackle table which means, something makes a very large noise and fall offs. Everyone bails out then the Trukk is wrecked. Which is a whole lot better then it smashing into my Lootas's seen behind it in the tree's.
So after that I now have a very slow very foot slogging army against a very trigger happy Space Marine army thats very very far away. I worry.
Lance tells his space marines to deploy from the razorback taking two objectives this turn. They are mysterious. They are supposed to do weird and mostly unfavorable things! Well.....one gave him sky fire and the other gave him a gravity well generator making it hard to charge him........yeah.
That missle launcher guy shoots again and everyone ducks except the Nob in hidden in my boyz squad who simply grabs another boy and abuses him like a 10 dollar hooker on coupon day. Look out sir successful!
The DakkaJet arrives and its pilot is obviously hammered. He shoots at the termi's killing one and pinning them.
Those Terminators are mad as hell. So since they love to kill Orky things that fly why stop now? They shoot and shoot alot at the DakkaJet. ALOT of 6's are rolled so the DakkaJet goes into evasive mode and only loses 2 wounds with 1 left. I have never seen an Ork do evasive maneuvers but it prob resembles kite in a hurricane.
So while the DakkaJet is going mach 10...some where Ghazskull and his trusty meganobz and are making a march for some Space Marines. They get shot at, and because I roll two 1's (mega nobz need 2+'s for saves) two mega nobz die. At this point im thinking about drinking all the beer Lance brought by myself.
Ghaz has seen enough he calls a WAGGGGHHHHHH!!!!! Then charges a tactical marine squad and wipes the floor with 7 space marines.....in one attack. In a panic the Rhino infront of Ghaz peels off and runs......into a tree, immob'ing it, in just the right spot for some serious cover from the squad of 7 or so left shooty terminators.
Then Lance yells at the Razorback and demands it gets line breaker points! This surprises the hell out of me and that Razorback takes off like a 1993 White Ford Bronco. However my Lootas who like shoot alot but not hit anything decide to shoot and hit! I shake the crew and immoblize the Razorback, exactly 2 inches from my deployment zone.
Ghazskull decides there are simply too many space marines around here, and kills another tactical squad of 5....in one turn. The Terminators who are watching all of this are non too pleased. So they charge and kill of Ghazskull finally ending his rampage. All the while a squad of 17 boys and 1 nob with a power klaw are simply running for the rhino and the terminators.
The squad of boyz are suicidal and crazy and charge the terminators. The combat goes pretty much as expected with the boyz and the Nob killing the remaining 7 Terminators........in one turn.....wait what? Lance 's super dice ran out of gas and he rolled a massive seven 1's on like 15 wounds. Giving me 2/3 objectives and line breaker.
Lootas shoot at space marines from across the table.
Orks get their revenge! I want to thank Lance for one hell of a game. Seriously the best game of 40k I ever played. It was all over the place with many ups and downs and great and terrible dice roll's on either side. Seriously fun!
