Hi,

here are some pics of a 2 days battle we played last week-end.

We tested the Assault scenario in a 10k game.

Attacker army: 10000 points
Defender army: 5700 points + 900 points in bunkers/defense lines

Saturday: Imperium forces attack and Chaos defend
Sunday: Chaos forces attack and Imperium defend

Not many comments about this battle, we played it for fun :)

Imperium attacks!

Assault IG in Gorgons reach the defense lines:

Capitol Imperialis (Thanks to Otterman & WMN for this great miniature) slowly advances on the road to the fortress. The embarked Heavy Infantry company will shot at anything in range.

Silver Skulls Space Marines assault the Deathguard in defense lines:

Imperium advance

Artillery for support. Griffons are wonderful in such a scenario:

Conclusion: it was 2 funny battles :)

- With 27 chaos reward cards for the second battle, we found few cards that were problematic (increase armor save in close combat is useless...this was reported in Chaos Book Errata thread)
- Mark of Tzeentch on Pink Horrors work well if a pink horror becomes a pink horror
- Elysian Drop Troops are useless on such a scenario :P All stands were easily killed by DeathGuard
- Valkyries are poor fliers but when they are in number, they can be a pain for your opponent
- It's a pleasure to see Grey Knights shooting down a greater daemon :)
- Heavy Infantry Company in a Capitol Imperialis works nicely! 34 attack dices can kill a Great Unclean one in a bunker :)
- Hellhounds are cheap, not great on battlefield but it's enough to clean some ruins
- Griffons are good for removing enemy from entrenchments
- It was the first time I fought Slaanesh on a battlefield. I underestimated how powerful this army can be! Slaanesh Greater Daemon psychic attack against Capitol was close to be successful...

Look like a lot of fun
Do you think it was balanced?

I'm not sure it xas balanced :) But as we played the battle on the large side, it took 3 turns for my gorgons to reach the first chaos defense line :)

At turn 5, chaos would have entered in the fortress (thanks to the skimmer ability of slaanesh greater daemon).

Hi Primarch :) You can find some pics of the fortress here. It's made of cheap heavy board, mostly glued with hot glue gun (not sure you call this tool like this ). SOme plastic bits come from Urban plastic cheap terrain kits and I'll add a lot of 40K terrain bitz when I'll rework on the fortress.

8) This is amazing Scream, and it looks like you had a great time. The Capital Imperialis looks stunning, I must get one, or two myself. I like the use of the Warmaster Daemons, I've been thinking about doing the same myself, so I can have even more Daemon Packs of Horrors. ::)

So, would you say you've got a taste for Assault Scenarios now? I'd also love to try some of the city fight scenarios from the old SM article. I think that would be fun too.

Great battle, love the CI and fortress!

Where are more pics of the CI and when did WMN and Otterman make this thing and post about it?

You'd need to go way back to the original WMN Zeppelin thread I think. O-Man made a limited run of resin ones....buggar to cast IIRC.
