Battle 1 of those fought as part of the Kalidothia Campaign using my Epic War! campaign rules. To find out more about the Campaign, please see this thread;

viewtopic.php?f=14&t=30910

Forces:

Squats:

Doomanvil Squadron 1600
Goliath Superheavy Artillery Battery 500
Air Attack Corps 700
Iron Eagle Gyrocopter Wing 550
Grand Battery 400
Mole Detachment 300
Termite Detachment 200
Ancestor Lord 150
Thunderer Detachment 300
Rhino Squadron 50
Slayer Cult 250


IG

Artillery company
Assault company
Heavy inf company
Baneblade company
Leman Russ company
Bike company
Vindicator company
Griffon motor sqd
Destroyer tank hunter sqd
Hydra AA sqd
Marauder sqd
Adeptus Pysker
Leviathan


The battle was fought on city terrain (J4 on Campaign Map). The Squat army was on Fortify orders and the IG on Advance. The Squats can Place 450 points of defences built in a previous campaign turn anywhere on their half of the board. Both armies set up within the usual standard deployment zone although the entire Squat army has to deploy before the IG do.

Both sides fielded armies worth 5,000 points each. To secure a win, one side must score 50VPs

The ruleset used was Net Epic Evolution.

Apologies in advance for the poor photography!

Notes: The Colossus is just out of sight to the left of the Rhinos on the Centre flank pic

One of the Goliath Mega Cannon is just out of sight to the right of the other cannon on the right flank.

Note that the ruins pictured are actually being used as Artillery Emplacements. I didn't realise that the old entrenchments were scrapped so had no time to build some!

Turn 1

Thunderers spot for a Goliath Mega Cannon which fires indirectly half way across the board...

...at a building containing a squad of IG Assault Troops...

...boom! The building is blown apart! The Assault troops are lost in dust and rubble. First blood to the Squats!

A second Goliath Mega-Cannon launches a volley at another building full of Assault Troops. The building stands up to the punishment but many Guardsmen perish within!

Destroyer Tanks move into position to catch a squadron of Iron Eagles horribly exposed! They unleash a deadly volley that wipes out the Gyrocopters in one fell swoop!

Another Goliath Mega-Cannon fires indirectly to attempt to bring down a building full of more IG troops. The building shakes under the super-heavy barrage but still stands! Windows are blown out however and several squads of Guardsmen are blown apart!

An Overlord Airships drifts forward. It strafes the deadly Destroyer tanks but thanks to poor aim and powerful armour it only destroys one!

Hydra Tanks respond to the Overlord threat and take it down! The Airship smashes off the side of the Justice HQ and sprays flames across the road below!

Cyclops Praetorians are starved of targets. They are reduced to unleashing their payload on a few Leman Russ. Total overkill!

The Marauders aren't finished there - the rest of their firepower is directed at another Overlord Airship! It crashes and burns! After a strong start the Squats know they have a tough fight on their hands!

In the final exchange of the turn, the Squat Collosus moves forward uses its Doomsday Cannon to good effect, destroying a squadron of Basilisks!

State of play at the end of turn 1

Left flank: The IG are fully in control as the Squats largely ignored this side of the board in deployment. A powerful Leviathan praetorian oversees the IG stranglehold on that flank.

Centre Flank: With a Collosus and 2 Cyclops in attendance this is probably the strongest area of the board for the Squats, particularly as the 2 Cyclops regained a lot of stripped shields in the End Phase. Opposite them are Leman Russ & Baneblades amongst others so the Squats do not fully control this sector by any means.

Right Flank: The Squat artillery is their biggest strength on this flank although ironically they are also a liability as they cannot capture objectives! The IG are looking formidable here as Vindicators are closing in on Squat lines, ably backed by their artillery.
