KILLL THEM ALL AND LET THE GREATER GOOD SORT IT OUT!!!!!! FUSION FOR THE FUSION GOD!

Shas'o Rymr, top of turn 5. At least, I wish I'd thought to say that.

Thing I did say "Well, admittedly my troops are in the building. However, it isn't my building. Doesn't that mean I can shoot it?"

Awsome game table! Thanks for the game. What you can't really understand from the pictures is that the Ordinatus is actually being excavated! The giant tank is in the table! Built in like a layer cake! Which is probably a good thing as the Tau would have been trying to take it out for a joy ride.

Here's a few more pictures from the game - Briancj was a tremendous host, built the table, and GM'd it. The Tau battled inquisiton several years before the second Taros war, thus forming a Prequel storyline with the Dark Mechanicus plotting towards a sinster end, and Shas'o R'myr siding further into darkness as Chaos gnaws at the edges of his "soul?". Do Tau have Souls?

R'myr had given aid to an imperial ship attacked by orks, and as a gesture of good will returned the survivors to Umia, a world currently occupied by the Mechanicus, who were excavating past glories, including the Ordinatus! R'myr was providing escort for a water caste Diplomat and touring the facility when Inquisitor Westwind accompanied by Imperial Guard, ON(SF) Marines, and Arbites arrest squad appeared suddenly on the landing field nearby. Moved by impulses he didn't quite understand, R'myr entered the mechanicus fortress which had suddenly been left open and obtained a heavily armored data canister. He was in the process of carrying it away when flanking chimeras roared up and he was under attack by gaudily clad imperial warriors. Wounded, suddenly disoriented, and wracked by weird sensations, he and his bodyguard unaccountably fell back, leaving the caninster in Imperial hands. Roaring with rage, he rallied his forces as contingency crisis teams dropped from the Thunderchild. Massacring the Imperials in his sector, he listened to the Mechanicus Comms as his loyal troops carried the relic canister away in a Sunfish Gravcar. He then called for General Order 2 - and the Tau opened fire on everything in sight, Imperial and (previously neutral) mechanicus. The mechanicus turned on the Tau with a brutal fury, but his Crisis team gunned down the mechanicus leader and he found he really didn't care about the casualties that might not have been necessary.

In the meantime, Kroot warriors carried off the wounded inquisitor across the table. Would they eat him? Return him to R'myr? Or form a new alliance?

We've requested another episode from Briancj, so hopefully we'll get to find out!

A few of my favorite pics....



R'myr contemplates the open door to the heart of Darkness....







































The Kroot drag the inquisitor down after a 3 turn melee, but then flee the board!



Chuma Death or Glories a Rhino, before the Duo is gunned down by enraged Arbites with Shotguns!

Amazing all around. Really appreciated it - thanks again!

So the Starstriders needed a few flight attendants.

Also a tank commander?

Some say the Starstriders Flight Attendent were recruited from Necromunda Spyrer Hunters. Others suggest a darker history, where they gained both their skills and flight gear fighting amongst the tall spires of the dark city Commorragh

Looks like it was a great battle. I’m envious of having a GM to enable some real plot twists in the games. Really looking forward to more.

Thanks - it was indeed a luxury!

Should the tank commander be mounted on a tank? Looks like a cool figure.

Next two games are at the moment "All your mule are belong to us", a series of kill team and small battles designed for a single day, and Assault on Dawnwater's edge (October) a combined BFG and Spacestation assault.

In the meantime, here is the first Euclidian Starstrider. Mostly done with Contrast.

The rest won't have any green, but I felt it really worked for that figure.

With the next game featuring Kroot, I've dug out an ancient project.... ...The Krootasaur! Sadly, it is looking kind of muppetish. With the next games featuring old school kill team (the "sneak past the brutes" thing), I feel there should be a Krootasaur pen. You can sneak through it... ...if you want to take the risk of being stomped.

Dubbing around with Kroot Kill Team. I'll need some more figures - the lizard guys would be counts as Kroot. Hoping to borrow some of Briancjs!



The Wargames Exclusive Kroot archer is I-Walker's. Although a Kroot in a halter top is pretty silly, this is actually a really great figure, one of my favorites from that line.
I may repaint the rock to provide more contrast with the figure.





Plus a very early Chaos Kroot conversion of mine from many years ago.
