What a weekend!
First off I want to say that if you ever get the chance to visit Warhammer World in Nottingham, you should absolutely go for it!
We had a few issues to start off with, due to some personal issues and work conflicts, a few of us were unable to make it which was a real shame, however Paul, Damien, Martin, Jamie, Matt and myself (Bruce here >_<) all spent the day mooching around the amazing dioramas, eyeballing the awesome merch and best of all playing a huge 12,000 point game on WW's incredible City of Death board "Spyral Prime".
Just take a look at that! o_0
FULL ARMY LISTS TO FOLLOW SHORTLY.
We used a combination of Maelstrom of War Mission 1 rules mixed with the White Dwarf "Cities of Death" Objective cards to really make the best use of the heavy terrain. We set up with Dawn of War deployment, and the forces of Chaos won the roll off, choosing to go first. After deploying our units, Martin threw the "Seize the Initiative" dice and scored a mighty 6, meaning the loyal forces of the Imperium could make a might Alfa-strike before the traitor legions could react. FOR THE EMPEROR!
Sgt Ned "Snap-shootin'" Smith prepares to lead a doomed charge against the Carnival of Flies.
A mighty Knight Errant stomps its way down the left flank.
The Death Company known as "The Screaming Death" attempt to hold ground against a rampaging Soulgrinder of Khorne.
Two Rhinos full of Plague Marines shield a stampeding Hellbrute from a hail of Dreadnaught artillery.
Damien and Paul devise a scheme of pure evil to thwart those pesky do-gooders.
Black Maru has a "Gandalf the Grey" style showdown with a ferocious Bloodthirster of Khorne on a crumbling bridge high above the city.
The game came to a close on turn 6, and despite taking heavy casualties the forces of The Imperium came out on top with more victory points to claim victory in the name of the God Emperor.
We had a really fantastic time at Warhammer World and I'm hoping the whole group can make it for a return visit at the end of the year. We've been eyeing up WW's impressive Apocolypse board for a game of truly epic proportions!
