I played a couple of games recently with two friends, Fingers and Heretic.
both games were 3000pts of crimson fists vs 3000pts (2x 1500pts) of nurgle.

These batReps are basically short descriptions of the game supported by a volley of photos... hope it works?

Game 1
The first game was kill points on table quarters.
The crimson fists flanked the nurgle force and made good use of the cover provided by the central hill...
While the plague marines proved hard to kill, by the end of the game the boys in blue challked up enough Kills and it was a Crimson Fist victory!
12KP to 7KP a proper solid imperial Win.

Papa Nurgle took the beating rather to heart, So a rematch was Called for!
a Week later, We both changed the armies up a little bit, and this is round two!

Nurgle had been beaten back from the Hill, So the table was set with a large flat area in the center containing a building and forest.
The Crimson fists were on a roll, they had damaged the chaos force in the area and had achived a foot hold... But the nurgle commander drew his battle line and decided to defend it!

Capture and control on Table halves....

The Fists had a very similar battle line, The nurgle forces decided to try split up and flank!
the Imperials tried to force through the middle, but two well behaved chaos dreads held the central bottle neck and refused to give way!
the flanking chaos force was destroyed, but in the last turns the Chaos land raider on the other flank tank shocked his way through to the imperial objective denying the imperials and claiming victory for Chaos...

This is interesting. Usually batreps are text with a few pictures to highlight the main events. This stream of consciousness approach with lots of pics and minimal text makes for a much more engaging read as I try to figure out what's going on just by the position/quantity of the models and objectives.

Great report, keep em comin.

I did say mini reports...
I was thinking about doing full reports as we played the games and I made some notes, but the main idea I had was to take photos for the 40k discussion board and to discuss the realm of battle board and how it performs in a game... maybe I'll do that another time...

The other players, Fingers and Heretic are both long time GW fans with several armies each.

Heretic was the crimson fists General, while the nurgle force was joint controlled by myself and Nick.
We had a few beers and had a blast! After the first game, when Fingers and I demanded a rematch... Heretic was happy to comply!

With the sneak victory in the second game, It's one game each. So we are planning to play a 3rd decider game. some time soon...
I might do a full report on the third game.
