Orks went first. Game in kill points with pitched battle deployment.




Turn 1

Lootas put 2 wounds on a Trygon while the Stompa dishes out the pain and wastes all but one Warrior and some Termagants. Deffkopters attack Hive Guard to stop any ranged anti tank and end up killing a unit.

Raveners move to attack Deffkopters as the rest of the horde moves forward. Last Hive Guard unit kills the last Deffkopter while the Raveners multi assault the other two, both Kopters are killed but a Ravener is sliced up by a buzzsaw. A Trygon with one of the Hive Tyrant manages to assault a Battlewagon and pops it.





Turn 2

The Stompa unleashes super skorcha and Raveners do a burny dance, one dies another takes 2 wounds. The Stompa also blows up some Termagants, but they go to ground and get plenty of cover saves. The Stompa finishes off by unleashing Grot rokkits at a Hive Tyrant which finishes it off as it was shot by Lootas. Another unit of Lootas polish off the wounded Trygon. Nobz bail out their Wagon leaving the cowardly Warboss and duke it out with the Trygon while the Boyz out the busted Wagon fire at Hormagaunts; the Nobz lose combat but bravely stay in the fight.

Raveners still steaming from the Stompa fire charge forward and attack the Lootas, a single Loota is killed but the Raveners are all smashed up. The Trygon Prime charges the Stompa and deals a immobilised result, weapon destroyed (which it saves) and the Stompa also loses a structure point, though the Stompa returns ramming it's chain fist up through the Trygon and slicing it in half up the centre. Both Hormagaunt units and the remaining Tyrant pile into the Nobz and Boyz killing both units with Trygon help.




Turn 3

The Stompa fires and kills the last Trygon while Boyz in the Wagons fire and kill all the Hormagaunts along with Loota support, the other Loota unit fires at the Termagant horde while the Warboss moves his Battlewagon towards them, he bails out fires a ball of skorcha flame and then dives into the battle ripping Termagants to pieces - after saves and fearless saves only a single Termagant remains in combat!

The next wave of Raveners attack the same Loota unit and rip a few to pieces with rending claws but take wounds also making it a draw in combat. The Hive Guard manage to immobilise the Stompa altogether while the Hive Tyrant all on it's own blasts the rear of a Battlewagon smashing it and then assaults the Boyz, they stay locked in combat. The single Warrior charges into combat and rips the into the Warboss killing him but not before the Warboss smashes it into pieces sending exoskeleton and carapace in all directions; the Big Mek actually does the deed and kills the last Termagant.




Turn 4

Orks cannot shoot anything as all locked in combat, only the Big Mek makes a run through cover and the other unit of Boyz still in a Wagon moves and assaults the Tyrant. In combat the Tyrant slaughters more Boyz but gets taken out with a power klaw to the face and the Lootas and ripped to pieces by rending claws. The Zoanthropes come down and land behind the Stompa, one Zoanthrope fails a psychic test but the other crackles the psychic warp lance and claims a structure point on the Stompa.







Turn 5

Boyz get back into the Wagon and make a move while the other Boyz run towards the Stompa while the Big Mek moves into that direction also. The last Loota unit fires at the Zoanthropes but only puts a wound on one. The Tyranids have better luck with the Myceptic Spore claiming a structure point from the Stompa, though the Zoanthropes fail but the Raveners speed through terrain and then up the building killing the Lootas while all but one Ravener dies, the single Ravener gets revenge and chases off the Lootas cutting them down.





Turn 6

The Boyz in the Battlewagon smash through the ruin where the single Ravener is hiding and gun down is snake ass. The Hive Guard fire and manage to penetrate the Stompas armour, they claim the last structure point and it goes down like a sack of spuds. The Zoanthropes go to lance the Big Mek but oen fails a psychic test and becomes brown bread.

In the end Tyranids win with about 11 kill points and Orks 9.

I'm curious about the stompa in a regular game as well, if you used the standard datasheet or if you scaled it down for regular 40k. Anything can go, as long as both agree :)

Also, the Raveners couldn't have climbed up the building to get to the Lootas, in case it was building with levels. Beasts and Cavalry can't climb levels.

It was just a friendly game.

In friendly games, you can do what you like really :3

Another great report! Glad to see 'Nids owned orks! :mrgreen:

Who do you play? You must have someone regularly around to play this much! I'm jealous :(
Or do you play yourself? I figured i could try doing that, When i get my 'Nids.

Lucky! I only get one game a week! I was going to build a table.. But my mate only likes playing at the shop, and said unless we get the 2 others (Who like 40k) Back into it (They seem to have a lack of interest!?!) he wont do it. :(

So I'm jealous of you!
