Did some work behind the scenes of the game blog page so that the game filters now work much better.
A couple of months back I found loads of old notes about all the old Epic Space Marine games we played, starting from back when I was in high school. I thought it would be a good idea to type them all up as best I could, and upload them all. While I was at it, I also converted the Epic-S and 40K battle reports from their PDF state to HTML, and they can be found on the Warhammer 40K page.
Finally got my pointing pictures up and into the Vault. Don't ask me why.
Warhammer 40,000 5th Edition Battle Report.
1750pts. 22nd December 2011.
Imperial Guard (commanded by Chris and Stebloke) Vs. Orks (commanded by Scooby).
This was a special battle as it took place during our first ever visit to Warhammer World. We rolled Pitched Battle and Annihilation.
With a roll of 1 the game ended there at the end of turn 5. After a decent start, the Guard were reeled in and crunched by the Orks with a score of 11-8. The main turning point seemed to be turn 3, when the Guard shooting was largely ineffectual, and the Orks were able to destroy nearly everything they attacked.
Units of the battle were the Sentinels, Burna Boyz and Warbikes. All three units performed admirably and caused much death.
Biggest waste of space had to be the Manticore, rolling only 5 blasts from a possible 12, and barely hitting anything with them all game. The only thing it did was take the last wound off the Warboss with its heavy bolter.
Still, a great game enjoyed by all.
