Daemonic Invasion at Drawbridge Games

Daemonic Invasion at Drawbridge Games

I’ve mentioned a couple of times on the blog that my painting of 40k Nurgle daemons was part of a build-up to a big game. And here are the results:

It was a huge game (over 750 power points per side), and featured a narrow win by the Imperials–by a single mission point. Each player had their own missions to accomplish, and the Imperials narrowly managed to get a bit more traction than the other forces–thanks to the Knight Titan that wouldn’t die and the resolute Salamanders dispatching all foes that faced them.

Here are some of the photos from the battle:

On the other board (connected by the gate we built between them) the Eldar army waited.

Drawbridge Apocalypse Salamanders Beast of Nurgle

So. Many. Salamanders.

Greater Daemon of Slaanesh, plus a Beast of Nurgle buddy to eat the overwatch, assault the Knight.

The other Warhound Titan, its command staff corrupted by Gellerpox, rained destruction from behind the manufactorum building. 

In all it was a great day of gaming and a massive story told. Huge thanks to Drawbridge and Enrico for hosting, Ryan for building and painting the light-up bridge that spanned the two tables, Steve and Jesse for painting the eldar gates, and Mike, Tony, Andy, Colton, and even Jeff for providing the huge number of painted models that took part in the battle. Finally, an additional thanks to Just Hitched Films ( www.justhitchedfilms.com ) for coming and filming the event, and putting together the great video.

This is a 40k story battle report featuring my Bad Moons Ork army versus Andy’s Tzeentch Daemons force. We’re gearing up for a big event, and Andy’s been painting up a storm, so we wanted to get some models on the table for a scrum.

Skizzit had never been a lucky git. Skizzit worked hard on his Warboss’ trukk, mostly repairin’ the whatnots and makin’ sure that the yellow paint was fresh. Skizzit’s Warboss was a Bad Moon, and that meant an eye for style and sumthin’ he called “sofikstikation”–which Skizzit understood mostly as lots of fresh yellow paint.

Orks vs Tzeentch Daemons 1

The Orks in Skizzit’s warband had been muckin’ around some ancient ruins, lookin’ for good loot amid the vacated humie structures that had been built. All Skizzit knew was that the humies had been here, and built some stuff to explore the ruins, but the humes weren’t around when the Orks arrived. It wasn’t long until one of the more knowy mekboyz got to turnin’ on some of the equipment the humies left, and then the fightin’ began.

Skizzit didn’t understand the things that came pouring out of the central chamber of the ruin, up into the abandoned work zone. They were fleshy odd things, in pinks and blues, with all sorts of flames everywhere. The Orks dove into battle with the things, but the fires were hot and when the Orks krumped ’em, they just came back with more.

Orks vs Tzeentch Daemons 2

The biggest of the squishy things was more massive than a Warboss, and had big old wings that carried him from fight to fight. Da Warboss got both his Big Mek and his Weirdboy to lead the attack on the thing, tho it was hard for Skizzit to tell if the thing was damaged at all by their attacks–as he barely understood what the Mek and Weirdboy did themselves. He did know that as the big thing killed its way through all the Orks and his fellow grots, things were getting out of control. What’s worse, is that Skizzit fled to the top of a building, only to find the big winged thing landing up there with him. He was trapped between the unsettling Weirdboy (who he always tried to avoid) and the great winged thing itself! The creature roared a massive roar as it sought to get at the Weirdboy, whose own eyes were glowing green with power. Skizzit fumbled in his bag for the small slugga he had nicked, vainly hoping to protect himself. The great bluish creature rushed forward, reality itself warping where his clawed feet treaded.

Skizzit raised his slugga and fired vainly, hoping that the noise would at least cause the thing to slow down or move away or something. Somehow, some way, the round from his slugga managed to catch the creature in the thigh. A hole appeared there, blistering with fire, and as Skizzit stood watching the air around the creature burst with sparks. The flaming hole in the thing’s thigh expanded and expanded, and after but a moment it was consumed in strange energy and reduced to ashes.

That was when Skizzit was taken from the Warboss’ Trukk work crew, and became part of the Weirdboy’s personal detail. He had defended the strange Ork once, and the whole crew said he’d have to keep doing it again. He was the blue giant killer, after all.

That’s how Skizzit found himself huddled in the shadows of the Weirdboy’s hut, suffering strange dreams and the Weirdboy’s frightening ranting every day, reflecting on how he never had been a lucky git.
