Hi guys, As some of you might know, I have recently been painting up some Tau ships and some Demiurge vessels for a 1,500pt fleet which makes up half of my Tau collection. This fleet is very much a themed one that relies heavily on the Demiurge in order to work. As part of this, [...]
Hi guys,Welcome back to the very slow moving BFG batrep! This post has the closing turns of the game as it all goes badly wrong for the Imperials! Sadly, my Gothic class cruiser failed to come on the entire game. Really I don't think it would have made much difference - I mucked up my [...]
New turn time again. The Tau use their turn to reload ordnance on the Custodian, needing to use a re-roll thanks to a -2 leadership rad-burst. Otherwise, the closest Hero AAF's towards the planet, while blowing up the Lunar.
New turn! I have managed to misplace the notebook in which the details of this battle report are, but will try and finish it off as best as possible.
Onto the second turn!

My fleet @ 1405pts: Admiral (Ld8) w/ 2 x RR Emperor w/ Sharks Dominator x 2 Gothic Lunar Dauntless w/ Lances Enforcer I had decided [...]

Both fleets were thoroughly mauled though, with the Imperials being in a precarious situation - mostly relying on crippled ships versus an [...]
Back again, I promise we are slowly moving our way towards the end of the game! Big swings happen in these turns as the Tau receive some welcome reinforcements, the Imperials lose a ship, and the fleets turn to face off.
Onto turns four and five now. Apologies for the camera glow from the white Tau ships here. Once again, the board was looking favorable to the Imperials at this stage, with the Emissary hulked and the Protector crippled by a volley of Nova Cannon shots. However the scenario has been favorable for the Imperials so [...]
Welcome back guys! At the start of the second turn neither fleets manages to get any reinforcements. I place a marker near the smaller moon, while Mike, my opponent places one in the line of my Gothic.
