First year of the Karak Eight Peaks campaign concluded

That's the end of the campaign for this year, next we'll have some new units for the armies and  perhaps a new scenario system.

The victors of this campaign have been the goblins with a total of 17 territories, followed by the dwarfs at 14 and the skaven with 11

Breaking the Blocade

 With smaller fleets (to ease playing) the campaign goes on, the imperials have to sneak some transports full of troops into the hiveworld of Pouia in this convoy scenario
 The imperial fleet moves to port, leaving one bait ship to starboard
 The chaos hulk turns to starboard and fires ineffectualy
 However, one transport fails her roll to burn retros and smashes into some torpedoes, dying awkwardly

 The imperial fleet moves all ahead while launching fighters to hold off the chaos bombers
 The hulk moves in close pursuit, destroying another transport
 But the transports sprint ahead
 While the cruisers attempt to bar the pass of the hulk
 The chaos warlord realizes that his "ship" is falling behind and orders all ahead full

But to no avail, since three transports reach the table edge deploying enough forces to contest the planet in a forthcoming land battle.

First siege of Pouia

 After defeating the fleet in orbit, the titans of the legio Metalica land to retake the hiveworld from the hands of their hated legio Metalica cousins
 The scenario is planetary invasion, with just one defender titan beginning in the board

 The first imperial titan shows of and takes hold of two of the three objectives 
 Followed closely by another warlord
 The legio mortis losses some shields but holds on
 The reamaining Mortis engine flanks the two imperial warlords
 Destroying one with a vortex warhead
 The imperials get their revenge destroying the first Mortis warlord
 Hastly the princeps turns to face the remaining enemy
 Who blows his shields with the weapons battery
And destroys it with the remaining missile.

Chaos victory then, who keeps the planet. Our next secenario will see the chaos fleet trying to dree the planet from the imperial blockading starships.

In the experience phase the surviving chaos titan recieved four experience points, the first metalica engine two and the rest just one each.

Floral wars

 In the depths of the lustrian rainforests, two native warbands clash during the course of the misterious floral wars between the lizardmen and the (male) amazons.
 We rolled chance encounter scenario, with the warbands deploying in opposite quarters, the lizardmen got first turn.

 The sauruses run and hide behind cover while the skinks provide ineffectual missile support
 The amazons stunned the saurus hero with slingshot
 First blood for the amazon hired sword, who killed one of her kin with a well placed arrow ¡fratricide!
 The lizardmen use movement magic to come to grips and kill another amazon
 The amazonian heroes charge to avenge their fallen comrades
 While a vicious hand to hand explodes in their left flank
However, those heroes bit more than can chew and both go down stunned. The amazon player then gives up, since in the next turn both models will be finished off by the lizardmen.

In the campaign phase nobody died, the lizardmen got some characteristhic increases, equipped two skinks with crossbows (using the shooting skill weapons specialist), found two lustrian artifacts, a feathered shield and the armour of the swamp drake, and even recruited a new skink henchmen armed with shortbow.
