I know, the first batrep / post for a while on the blog, but I have recently started a new job at the Uni and have been exceptionally busy. My PhD is also coming to fruition and I am looking to submit it in January time, so that is more work!
Still, I have a Battlefleet Gothic battle report for you – 1200pts of Tau vs. Imperial Navy, playing the Escalating Engagement scenario from the BFG rule book. Essentially, in the Escalating Engagement scenario, you start with small portions of your fleet on the table while the rest of the ships steadily come on the edges through out the game. I am using my Bakka fleet in this game, possibly not a great choice versus Tau – Bakka traditionally has few launch bays while Tau specialise in ordnance heavy fleets.This first post will just be the first turn, but over the next couple of days I will get the rest of the report up on the blog.
That is the end of turn one, and things are looking good for the Imperium – having crippled the only Tau ship on the board and within range to turn and fire again next turn. However in escalating engagements things can swing very quickly depending on whether any ships arrive in the next turn.
