Battle Report: Eldar vs. Orks Annihilation

This is Tyrant's return to the game of Warhammer 40k after a hiatus of four years. As such, we decided to keep the size of the game small to get him back into the game. We rolled up a Annihilation scenario with the Spearhead deployment. The Orks won the deployment choice and first turn.

Battle Report: The Axis Columen Campaign, Part Two

This battle is the second battle in a four battle mini-campaign between the Necrons and the Brazen Claw.

Located in a strategic central location that is also at the nexus of navigable passages through the warp, Axis Columen is known as the “keystone” of the Arcadia Sector. The planet itself remains uncolonized, however its orbit is widely trafficked by both the Imperial Navy and commercial shipping. Upon discovery of a unknown signal emanating from the planet, Imperial Navy scouts were sent to the planet’s surface to investigate, but contact with them was quickly lost. One of the scouts' last recorded transmissions indicated implacable, mechanical beings advancing on them.

Navy Commanders contacted the nearest Space Marine force in the area, a Strike Cruiser of the Brazen Claw. Recognizing the threat, the Brazen Claw responded quickly and decisively.

Battle Two: Meet the Enemy, 1750pts
Now that contact has been initiated, the Brazen Claw and Necron forces are poised to do battle. The Brazen Claw must seize ground in order prepare for their final strike on the Necron Beacon.
