Welcome once more to the Realm of Chaos and the final part of the battle report of a recent battle held at the Sudbury Wargames Club. An alliance between Nurgle and Slaanesh have met a large Khornate warband. The target? A mysterious Blasphemer who has offended the disciples of the blood god with his disregard for a sacred shrine. Khorne must kill him, Slaanesh must convert him...
|Slakesin makes easy work of the Khorne warrior before sizing up the rabble of orc boyz looming on the horizon.|
|On the other side of the battlefield, Gluttonspoor continued to break the bones of the thug unit.|
|Jaketh and Slakesin softened up the orc and beastmen ranks with a a flurry of fireballs.|
|An overview of most of the battlefield before the final clash of the bulk of the warbands.|
|Dan's rather drastic solution to the problem of the Blasphemer!|
|As you would imagine, even with the formidable fighting skills of a chaos warrior, the orcs made short work of the Blasphemer and he fell to the ground, multiple wounds sliced through his spectral armour.|
|Grizzleguts also fell. Outmatched and outclassed by the frenzy of the Chaos Hounds.|
|With Dan's battleline broken, my forces prepared for a crushing assault in my next movement phase.|
|And here is the aftermath of that charge; beastmen x2 race to engage the orcs while Twoslice attacked the Khorne beastmen.|
|The paraphernalia of a Realm of Chaos battle. Rulebooks aplenty.|
|Twoslice inflicts crippling wounds on the beastmen of Khorne and they run from the field as the minotaur pursued.|
|Slakesin cuts his way into the rear of the orc unit. His terrible blade reaping a terrible harvest of greenskin blood!|
|Gluttonspoor continued to murder his way through the Chaos thugs while Raggedflay bombarded the minotaur with fireballs.|
|Sadly, the Nurgle forces could so little against the monstrous force of Khorne. My right flank ceased to exist!|
|However, my combined force of Nurgle and Slaanesh beastmen destroy the orc regiment in full in a magnificent display of dice rolling. And so the game ended, we had to be home before midnight to ensure continual spousal happiness.|
|The surviving Khornate forces. We imagined that with the Blasphemer down, Ironcron recalled his forces back to his lines.|
|With no Blasphemer, the Slaanesh and Nurgle forces have nothing left to fight for. Commanded by their gods they slink away from the broken corpses and groaning wounded.|
And what a battle it was too. It was marvelous to witness the spectacle of the 3rd edition battle fought with original miniatures. We had a number of intrigued and fascinated spectators too. Including some older gamers who were 'there man' and some younger ones who had their minds blown away by the quality of 80s design and the fact that every rule required to play 3rd edition is in one book, okay, okay, two books if you include Warhammer Armies.
Packing up the game, we discussed the next RoC campaign, Slave to Darkness but confessed that we fancied playing 'something' totally different first.
But what would that something be?
