1250 points, Orks vs. Biel Tan in a game of Patrol.
Kind of a weird game. I wanted to use Dire Avengers, but it's hard to paint up figs which look like this when I know new figs will soon be released which look like this. I pulled out my old Deiminn Sinn Avengers and used those instead. While I'm not thrilled by the quality of the paintjob, I think the idea (Aspect Warriors trained to fight without sight or hearing) was a neat one.
Oh, and I also used Eldar Missile Launchers for Shuriken Cannons. I was high class all the way.
James took a Wave Serpent to task quickly on the far flank, pinning a squad of Dire Avengers. Grots moseyed their way over to finish them off, followed by some Killer Kans, but it was a single buggy that tore ass up the table which did the dirty work; the Avengers humped their way over the Serpent wreckage to try and crack it themselves, but ended up almost entirely impaled on the spikes. The final insult was dealt when the buggy barfed up a scorcha blast and took the last remaining Avenger, the Exarch no less.
The Ork-looted Leman Russ dropped a fat template on the head of a single War Walker and blew it to smithereens. It's one of those stories that enjoys a crisp brevity. Basically: Pow. Boom. Dead.
And that was about it for James. His Grots were mostly ventilated with heavy weapon fire in the early stages of the game, the War Walkers tore up some Killa Kans, Wave Serpents corked a buggy... but the real moment of pride came when the Striking Scorpions (accompanied by a Farseer who Fortuned them) and the second squad of Dire Avengers converged in their transports on the Warboss' retinue. Nothing but Ork kibbles by the time they were done (and a dead Warboss makes for big kibbles).
A picture tells a thousand words... so here are a few thousand to really illustrate how it all went down.
