Following on from our Tanks game, we moved on massively in time…..to the 41st millennium !! Our next game was our own created game of 40k. We couldn’t decide whether to play Stormcloud Attack or Renegade Knights, so, in true Battle bunker style, we merged them together. Mum built and painted the terrain for the game and we created the table using one of Tiny Wargames mats.
I was playing the Knight, defending what was left of my home world against the attacking hordes, well against 3 horrible Ork flyers anyway. Before we began the game, we had to decide who would play each flyer. Josh and Regan played the Dakkajets while Richard bagged the Wazbom Blastajet.
Well, in true Downing style, the majority of damage taken during the game was from the flyers colliding with each other (reminds me of many a naval game we have played 😄)
Many times the flyers would pound shot after shot into the knight, unfortunately they didn’t really manage to achieve critical damage as the random factor of the aim chart meant the shots were all over the place. It was quite funny to stay still in the middle of the table and see the carnage happening around me.
I think we spent more time laughing at the antics of the flyers than really taking the game that seriously. It was awesome. I really enjoyed playing the game.
We did find that some parts of the rules etc weren’t as clear as they could be so we will be doing more work on that soon. I am looking forward to playing another game.
