Turn 2 guys!
Second turn of my local clubs mini-BFG campaign and the Renegades and Orks once again clashed over the same planets of the Calixis Sector – the Renegades mounting an abortive push against the sector capital of Scintilla, while the Orks managed to wrest the mining planet of Luggnum from the control of the Renegades. The ork victory meant that the planet switched control. Lots of pictures this week!
The Imperials deploy around Scintilla hoping to stop the Ork fleet making into the inner biosphere of the system
An Imperial Overlord and Gothic drift closer to the Debris Field, waiting for the reported Ork fleet to arrive
While over on the other board, the Chaos fleet hopes to destroy the Ork landing forces convoy before they can reach the system
The Roks arrive – greeted by the looming presence of an Imperial Battlecruiser
A solar flare streaks across the mercurial zone battlefield
The Ork Convoy and the Ork fleet escorting it appears, driving into the board and launching some pre-emptive torpedoes
The Overlord opens fire, scoring hits on the Roks
The Gothic (with the third shield won in the last game) crumples and is crippled under heavy firepower from the Roks
On the other table, the Chaos Cruiser rides over the Ork torpedoes, taking one point of damage
The Chaos fleet flanks left
The Imperials split, each cruiser targetting a different group of roks
The Ork transport convoy pushes ahead into the middle of the board
While the Overlord continues to reap a toll on the Orks
The improved Gothic dies, and the Swords move up to take its place
The Chaos Repulsive blows chunks out of the Ork escorts
While another cruiser curves round behind the transport convoy
The Repulsive is caught by some Ork Heavy Gunz, taking heavy damage
The Roks make short work of the Swords and power for the edge of the board
The Overlord finishes off the middle group of Roks in reply and begins a long stern chase after the other group
On the other board, the Orks do serious damage to the Chaos fleet
While the escorts and transports run for the board edge
The Imperial defences take some shots at the racing Orks – only to get torpedoes in return
The Orks escape
The Imperial vs. Rok game came to a strong Ork victory in the end, with most of the Roks making it off the board. With this victory, Mike the Ork Warlord, won a refit for his Big Mek’s Rok – they decided to build Killa Kans to help with the reloading of ordnance. The Ork vs. Chaos game was much closer – 408VP’s to 393VP’s – only 15 victory points giving the Ork fleet the win. As a reward the Terror Ship in the Ork fleet received Mad Bommerz – meaning that instead of rolling D3 attack runs, the Fighta-Bommas will make D6 attack runs – very nasty!
Current campaign score is 19 to the Renegades and 22 to the Orks.
