PPNCLI vs. Death Orks of Krieg Rounds 3 and 4

So we played at the two games at the university gaming club this weekend. Both were on a hilly and forested table with a few ruins.

The first scenario was stake out. With the orks as usual winning the roll to decide attacker it would be the Guard who were trying to get captain Reynard to safety.

After falling back from the missile silo Captain Reynard and his squad were on the run. Reynard had called a halt in small clearing to allow the squad to catch their breath but it was only minutes before his pickets came rushing back to report two large groups of orks advancing from the North and East.

Reynard spread his recruits out along a defensive line to cover the two major approaches. He and the rest of his officers were grouped in the center ready to launch a counterattack of spearhead a break out if the chance presented itself. His troopers were not yet in position when the orks came storming out of the forest. The orks ran forward to quickly close with the troopers, while the burna boy launched a gout flame which lit a recruit’s clothes on fire. Captain Reynard also noticed that a sneaky boss and two Kommandos had infiltrated in behind his position.

Most of the guardsmen recovered from the shock of this unexpected attack quickly and took up firing positions. While Captain Reynard overestimating the endurance of himself and his fellow officers tried to charge the ork infiltrators. (I in a momentary lapse of consciousness thought that I could charge 12” when my mistake was corrected only the Captain and one recruit were in range) Firing saw a number of the orks fall but none were put down for good. In combat Reynard was so exhausted after his long run that he was unable to free his sword from his scabbard. The Sneaky boss did not have the same problem however and with a wicked right hook managed to critically stun the good captain.

The orks who had weathered the shooting charged into combat taking a bloody toll on the guardsmen. The only bright spot being that in one of the few one on one combats a guardsmen who had received advanced close combat training (2 attacks) was able to dispatch his orky opponent. The Patricias scattered and ran however when the sneaky boss delivered a vicious kick to the head of the stunned captain Reynard, taking him out of action.

In the post battle the newly promoted sergeant received a permanent chest injury while everyone else recovered fully. The squad was also fairly successful in finding valuable resources while fleeing madly through the forest.

Round 4

Coming Soon....

Poor sergeant - he's about as tough as a grot now! This happened to one of my officers (a lieutenant in my urban fighters) so I made him the squad sniper, put him high and gave him the longest, rangiest weapons I could!

Captain Reynard sounds like he was lucky to make it.

Thanks for sharing
Laney Very Happy

Here is a picture from that first battle. The Guardsmen are in the center, the orks are around them in three groups.

Nice table,

But like me you need more multi-level terrain to balance the score against the orks. With that deployment poor old IG were pretty much stuffed from the start. Sounds like you gave it a good go though.

PPNCLI VS Death Orks of Krieg Round 4 The Humiliation continues.

“That’s it! We are evacuating” the Governor yelled at Captain Reynard, “get you men to escort me to the shuttle so we can get off this godforsaken planet!”

“Yes sir,” Said captain Reynard while snapping a salute. To himself he thought, “so running away are you? you pansy ass coward.”

It didn’t matter if the Imperium had given up on this planet the Princes Patricia’s New Cadian Light Infantry would fight on for Patricia and the Emperor, until every last one of this stinkin orks was dead Captain Reynard thought. But orders were orders and it would be easier to carry out this war once these civvies were out of the way.

“Lieutenant set up a perimeter around the Plaza, and get some of the officers to start escorting the Governor and his officials out of the danger zone, we won’t have much time till the orks arrive.”

The administrators were still madly dashing around the courtyard trying to pack their things when the Orks struck. The nob and most of his boyz emerged from a ruined building north of the plaza, unfortunately this was where most of the officials were milling about. The orks charged forward while some of the more energetic boyz fired off some shots at the Patricias’ perimeter Knocking a recruit down. The Burna boy also managed to get within range to unleash his flamer on another recruit who was taking cover behind a hedge.

“Quick we will have to try and break through the other way,” Reynard ordered. And his officers began hustling the officials away from the incoming orks. Three officials were being uncooperative though and actually rushed towards the attacking orks in order to grab a last few important items from their belongings. The Patricias began to return fire against the orks and one brave recruit moved to block the entrance to the plaza in order to slow the ork advance.

On the far side of the plaza the ork commandos who had snuck around behind the plaza in order to ambush the guardsmen began shooting at the Governor and the Sergeant who was escorting him. While the main assault ploughed into the Guards defences the brave recruit quickly falling to the orks choppas.

Seeing three of his men down already and the Governor and his officials making no attempt to get to safety Captain Reynard panicked and order his men to fall back. The civvies would have to take care of themselves.

Post Game

This game ended when I failed my first rout test I had to make (again) and my Squad decided to run for it. However I am falling so far behind that I got a +2 to experience for being an underdog this game which meant almost everyone levelled up. And I rolled lots of new Skills and leadership improvements for the officers. Due to the deplorable performance of my squad the Imperial Commissariat has taken an interest in the squad and will be dispatching a Commissar to watch over the squad, and in still some discipline (I rolled returning a favour in the exploration phase).

That report makes it sound like a pretty short and boring battle. Hahaha. It was an interesting one. It was shaping up to be a bit of a bloodbath, then you routed. At least now you have more models and won't rout as fast.

No pics of this one. It was over too fast.
