40k at Casa De Killgore

Once again some of the lads showed at the Casa De Killgore for some 4ok and a spaghetti dinner. Big Roy, Chuckaroobob and Tony P showed and the gaming began. Chuckaroobob set up the table as a neutral third party. He is still boycotting 40k and Warhammer Fantasy for reasons that would make another post on its own. We are trying to bring him back into the light and he has admitted to painting up some 40k miniatures recently but he still refuses to play. We fielded one thousand point armies for some fun quick games. Big Roy brought his orks, Tony brought his space marines and I fielded some imperial guard. Chuckaroobob brought some some minis but they were Spanish American war Spanish Marines that he cleaned up as he watched us play. We diced off and Big Roy and I would play the first game.

Big Roys orks. One squad of ork bikers, a couple of war buggies, a battlewagon full of boys, a big mek with custom force field in a truck, a burna boy mob in a truk and a boys mob in a truk.
I had a Psyker primaris, two vet squads in chimera, a banewolf, an Lemane russ executioner and a auto cannon sentinel outflanking.

I managed to pop a warbuggy with the multimelta on the banewolf early but Big Roy closed quickly with his truks. I deployed my veterans so a lucky rocket wouldn't pin them in the wreck.

Big Roy turbo boosted his ork bikers down my flank to threaten my objective but my Auto cannon armed Robot/Sentinel proxy outflanked next to them.

The Primaris and the Vet squad deploy to gun down the bikers.

While preoccupied with the bikers. The warlord rolled op hopped out and charged the executioner destroying it. Then he moved over to clear out the objective.

It looks bad for the boys but they manage to blow up one warbuggy below them.

The Warlord fires his combi-skorcha at the chimera and just happens to burn down eight of the vets.

The rest break and flee the table. The bad thing about riding the table edge. Then he charges the chimera.

Big Roy destroys the vets chimera then moves his Burna boy mob for maximum effect. The big pile of dice is the number of wounds from the burnas on the Vets.

The Robot/Sentinel charges out of the ruins to hit the Big Meks truk.

After surviving one round the chimera takes a lot of punishment on the second round.

With the chimera destroyed the warlord contests the objective, so Big Roy moves his truk to keep the sentinel from get too close.

The burnaboys charge into the combat to tar pit the sentinel and keep it off of the objective.

The banewolf make a play for the draw. I head it across the table to blow up the truk and poison the surviving boys, but the last warbuggy finally hit something and blows up the banewolf with a rocket. Yes the objective is a Filmore die cast from the Cars movie but there was no mistaking it for something else.

The Warlord does a Victory dance, a win for the orks.

It was the first game of 40k I had played in months and the first game Big Roy had ever played in 5th edition. I believe he is planning to field a chaos marine army in the next rematch.

Next up was Tony's space marine lead by Chapter Master Vorster Hadler against Big Roys orks.

Big Roys Orks move out.

The boys move up deploy and charge into the marine Tactical squad.

A scrum of ork and Marines fighting to the death.

The sounds of combat draw him and Vorster slays the enemies of Man.

Ork boys pile out of their transports but Vorster has more than enough pain to go around.
The game ended soon after this and Big Roy ended up beating Tony by one kill point. It was a close game and wasn't decided until the seventh round of the game.
