Waterloo anniversary


Today is the commemoration of Waterloo so we took the chance to replay it

The french begin the battle with a massed assault on Hugoumont
While their cavalry charges in the center
Scots greys counterattack the cuirassiers
As the light dragoons do likewise

Beset by twice as many foes, the british manage to rout the dragoons, but fall to the chasseurs

While battle rages on the right, both sides keep the distance on the left, waiting for the prussians 

Picton is wounded while leading the scots to victory over the cuirassiers

The chasseurs try to destroy the guns on the ridge but are intercepted and routed by the heavy cavalry, Scotland Forever indeed!

It's 17:00 and the prussians begin to stream into Plancenoit, charging into a lively fire

The german riders cut to pieces a division of ligne
And even behead marshal Ney
The swiss mercenaries turn tail
But are caught and anihilated by the royal guards
The Jeune Garde charges from Plancenoit and pushes back the germans

Caught in the open, the gardes are easy prey for the hussars
The allies steamroll the left flank and collapse the enemy morale
Sadly in these last fights a lucky shot strikes the Duke, killing him outright
With both flanks destroyed, the french flee from the battlefield amongst cries of trahison!
The Old Guard forms a square to cover the retreat of the Emperor and his defeated army

Rogue doc


Shiv is a Necromunda Rogue Doc, located in Hive PrimusUnderhive. She is well known for both her illegal experimentation on Underhivers and her close association with House Goliath. This is due to Shiv's track record of creating Goliath Unborn at an almost 50% success rate. These results place her amongst the most successful docs in her field, and the first stop for many wannabe Goliaths. Shiv also has a talent for concocting chems, which has made her a target for House Escher's gangs, who accuse her of stealing their House's secrets. These threats made Shiv seek out protection and she used her knowledge of chems to obtain the bodyguard Goliath Stimmer Brok, along with a gang of other Stimmers for him to command. Brok is utterly devoted to Shiv, though, none cay say whether this is due to having romantic feelings for her or if Shiv has laced his chems to ensure his loyalty. In either case, Brok's gang, known as the Crushers or more commonly Shiv's Crushers, have been able to solve plenty of Shiv's problems. This includes nosy Escher gangs and even other Rogue Docs who set up too close to her territory. Recent rumors also claim that Shiv has almost perfected an elixir based on Brok's blood, that will turn any Goliath into a Stimmer. If this is true, it could elevate Shiv into a real power in Hive PrimusUnderhive Hive Primus

Deimos Binary


Vengeance for Cadia! With an endless hordes of chaos worshippers emerging from the Eye of Terror it falls to Grand Marshal Helbrecht and a crusade of the Black Templars to stem the tide of corruption, starting by the heretical foothold on the ruins of Deimos Binary

The chaos fleet is led by the Planet Killer no less
While the bulk of the imperials is formed by astartes vessels, a lone navy cruiser has joined the fight
Battle begins with the Planet Killer firing her apocalyptic gun at the Light of Purity, luckily the battlebarge's shields hold and the battleship is well hidden from the other weapons behind Deimos
In the imperial turn the Templars sally forth, launching all ordnance
Praise be! A lucky torpedo strikes the Armageddon Gun and disables all prow weapons for the rest of the game. The Emperor is with us! shouts Helbrecht
Thunderhawks and chaos craft clash in the space between
Some of them cross the lines and attack the marine strike cruisers, disabling some cannons
The chaos craft smashes into the templar gunships
As battle progresses the imperials catch the Planet Killer in a pincer movement, cutting through the chaos filth and firing both broadsides simultaneously
With her main batteries out of action, the gargantuan chaos ship drifts mindlessly onwards, crippled and reduced to only four remaining hits
To seal the game a devastation cruiser is destroyed by concentrated fire from all angles
The vessel explodes, damaging the Planet Killer even more
With the battle all but lost the chaos admiral disengages to fight another day

The lost temple

 25 Sigmarzeit 2021 IC. We're off again into the unknown, I have overheard some stories about a hidden pyramid lying off to the norwest to the coast of this forsaken archipelago. Since our supplies run low and our coffers are full of treasures I've decided to make a last expedition into the jungle to get a last hoard of pagan treasure with wich to return in glory to the Empire.
After leaving our ship on the coast we entered the island, reaching our destination at dawn
While my hunters deployed, their crossbows at the ready, our flagellants and hounds moved stealthily forwards under cover of the dark
We had hired the services of a beautiful native guide on Trondheim, but she seemed to have some problems with the local flora, falling prey to a lashvine

Under cover of our shots the brethren closed with the enemy, and a vicious hand to hand erupted amongst the ruins
Always reliable, our hounds rounded up their blasphemous priest and teared him to pieces
However the plant life was specially lethal in this area, and we had to lament another loos to a carnivorous plant. This time it was the lot of an altdorfer, Helmut Wimpfen, to met our lord Sigmar 
However the jungles of the lustrian continent are often as dangerous to our enemy as they are to us, doubly so in the case of their souless tilean mercenaries
Our onslaught had cut a glorious path through the mutant defenders of the place, that were cowering in a corner of the pyramid waiting only for our purifying fire to clense them
In the temple a lone dwarf was standing his ground, stubborn as all the members of his ancient race
Brother Sprenger led the charge against the lizard filth, that was soon engaged at sword point with us

A last sortie of the lizardmutants was cut short by the flagellants, that jumped mindlessly into from the vegetation and cut one of them down

I personally led the last charge, smashing the brains of another humunguous creature with my trusty hammer of heretics
As our enemy routed from the battlefield, our vocies rose in a hymn of victory: the day belonged to the church, and with it the heretical gold that would be purified through service to the Great Teogonist.
Praise be Sigmar.
Heinrich Kramer, Witchslayer Colonel
