Mega Apoc Battle

Mega Apoc Battle, apocalypse Orks vs Imperial at Game Kastle, 20 APR 2013.

20,000 points of Orks against about the same points of Imperials. The Ork force was made of a number of new units, such as gyrenes (ork marines), pickups and guntrukks (small trukks), kavalry (ork boar boyz), etc.


Town center was one of two simultaneous objectives (as was the Stompa), filled with a rabble of gretchin and young boyz, all being set upon by Imperial super-heavies. The various small wrecks were uncrewed vehicles, later replaced with manned ones

The three Imperial commanders oversee their initial positions

Covering consisted of two pieces of muslin for the entire table. This was the only seam. Muslin makes a great play surface, even when not tea-dyed. Wrinkles add to visual appeal, so keep it wadded, not folded

Three drop pod assault on one of the two Imperial objectives, destruction of the Stompa and capture of the town center on the same turn. This part of the operation is going well.
