ok I have been pressed into giving this battle report I will post pics and some general comments about them.

The Squads

Chaos Cult of Nugle [yet to be named vote here:Nurgle Cult Name]

1x Nurgle Space Marine
2x Asipiring Champions
2x Chosen of Nurgle
2x Annihilators
3x Saboteurs

VS

The Green Mounties

1x Nob
1x Werid Boy
1x Sneaky Boss
2x ArdBoyz
1x PainBoy
2x Burna Boy
1x Kommando
1x Ork Boy
2x Grot

The Battlefield, an abandoned Slaanesh temple.


Set up:

The Nurgle force sets up ready to advance towards the ork line


The orks mill around waiting for the battle to begin.


The two forces eye ball each other.

Turn 1:

The Orks advance forward swarming around the Temple. The Kommando who snuck into the temple failed to hit any of the cultiusts.


The Nurgle force cautiously move forwrd. The Chosen returns fire on the kommando stunning the greenskin.

Turn 2:

The Green mounties prepare to rush the Cultists.


The Cultists fan out trying to find targets.

=========================== END TRANSMISSION============================

will post the rest tomorrow night.

Cheers

NICE!!!! I saw the MY Grots! Yeay for expendable comic relief! You need to post closeups of your Nurgle Dogs (I voted for that name, so I may as well use it!) The models look sweet!

A suggestion... terrain is a functional part of the game (contrary to 40k, in which it is only to block LoS or slow down troops). While the castle looks gorgeous (it does!), there is no 'practical' way to climb it. Check this picture...


There is no way the Orks could climb and fight the Cultists (far right)


From my perspective, the platform looks to be 10" tall... therefore it is unclimbable. I would suggest making the 2nd level 2-3" from the floor, and the 3rd floor the same distance from the 2nd floor. This way, fighters on the ground level could technically reach a 'sniper' on a 3rd floor (he could be 8" high) by climbing and assaulting on the next turn (unless the sniper is close to the edge.)

Yeah the tower is a WIP I realized after making it there were no way up for the units. I intend to add split levels to the bottom and ladders so there are access points on all sides.

just not into building scenery in comparison to doing squad conversions.

As for the Nurgle squad well they have had a make over. I tried to give them more of a Marine flavour and I guess I am hoping the new and improved versions will actually win the game.

Good battle report - I look forward to reading the rest. The squads look really good too! Cool

The Varangians have had a couple of battles (but my wife won't let me have the camera! Sad )

Can't wait for the next installment LGW.

Laney cheers

man your freaky.... its exactly 10". 5" from the bottom to the first level and then another 5" from the 2nd level to the top. your werid.

I'll see if I can make a more solid set up with access points on both sides.either ramps or stairs.
might see what I can do today.

We agreed that there were access points and ladders to climb up and down. It was an unwritten rule.

just printed off the Necromunda walk ways and towers will glue these to 3mm foam card.

Hopefully use them in the next battle. Costme $6NZD to print 36 pages of colour images. not bad else where would have been $64.44NZD.

not very good at making scenery but I'll give it ago.

Great battle report.
Don't feel at all bad about your terrain mines far worse and unpainted.
Do I see winged grots?
