Battle Report ork+necron vs space marines

Ok so, here goes my first battle report. It happened last weekend so I might not remember some details.

Before I start I want to show off my new battle mat! :P I bought that and some trees and now our battles look a little bit better. Hopefully our little group might make some more for the next encounters.

Our battle was 2000 points of space marines (including a spearhead of walkers) versus 1000 points of orks and 1000 points of necrons. I used the space marines. Woroxon used the orks and Raidengard used the necrons. We decided to try another battle mission and chose surprise attack from the battle missions book. Necrons and Orks deployed on the inside, each unit 6 inches from each other. Space Marines deployed from all around and this is how it looked like:
Space Marines always go first on that mission so they had a lot of targets to choose from. After the dust settled a lot of orks died and no Necron was touched. Orks and Necrons then decided to kill space marines. A bike, dreadnought, a speeder and a bunch of terminators didn't make it to the second round.
Third round the space marines finished up most of the boys and managed to kill one necron immortal. Scarabs proceeded to finish up all the dreadnoughts.

All boys are now dead but Ork boss killed the terminators, necrons are finishing off the remaining space marines.

The end looked like this, all space marines are to be removed from the field by the end of the next turn so we decided to end it there.
Things looking grim for the last 3 space marines.
Hope you liked it

  1. We bought our first battle mat about a year ago. What a difference it made in the feel of the game!

    We custom built a 4 x 8 foot table so that we could do regular battles and Apocolypse games too. For that, we bought an additional 4 x 6 foot particle board, so we played an 6 x 8 foot Apocolypse game, and splurged and got a 2nd mat.

    Unfortunately, we had to leave the table behind, but brought 1 mat. Now, we need to get another 4 x 6 board to put on top of our dinning room table.

    We have played many games 2 on 2, IG, SM, Tau & Orks or some variety thereof.

    Great Battle Report!

  2. Indeed Glen, and is more evident in picutre than in person. we still lack terrain but at least we are improving next time we might be able to do a proper battle with terrain.

  3. Hopefully, next weekend I can get to the hobby store to see what they have available for terrain. We made almost all of ours. We are not experts at it, but we have learned a few things.

  4. Except for the need for more terrain it looks great. If you are a little creative you should be able to whip up a bunch of terrain. Just paint it though:)

    Those battlemats looks nice. Might spring for one since GWs plastic gameboars is so expensive (looks amazing though!).

    Time to build some WAAAGH! Momentum Woroxon and kill those pesky hoomans:)

  5. Thx glenn and flekkzo!

    Yeah I have a little surprise, I was going to post pictures today but my camera didn't have any battery left. I left it charging hopefully tomorrow I'll post pics.

    Battlemat is awesome!
