Return to Giddeon Prime - Initial Landing & Turn#1

The map was revealed and the players anxiously choose their colours and marshaled their forces. 3d6 were rolled and the order randomly chosen to deploy forces and initial landing zones.

The skies and ground trembled as the armies appeared from the warp, dropships and rose from the frozen south.

  • Chaos Forces of Mephiston the Reborn (Solid Red Flag) deployed to the frozen North. Claiming a Spaceport and Hive City Broazsh.
  • The Eldar Mul-Girtab (White Flags) claimed the Eastern Spaceport and the surrounding terrain.
  • Sensing his brother close, Archon Dragao O'Preto (Black/Gold Flag) and his Rilyn Vuz-Stra war-band broke through the webway sweeping over the southern battlements.
  • The citizens of Hive City Mujuilp were ravaged as the warp blenched the Chaos Daemons (Black Flag) into their streets, the incursion chasing the survivors tot he nearest Spaceport.
  • The the far north, the Necrons (Yellow Flag) rose from thier slumber and started to march across north.
  • Responding tot he call for aid, the Bermudiana 501st ‘Longtails’ Imperial Guard Regiments (Red/Blue Flag) made planetfall at the SW Spaceport and prepared a defensive line.
  • Along the Eastern battlements the Black Templars (Blue Flag) marshaled their forces and prepared their crusade banners.
  • The Tau (Green Flag) swept in using the NE Spaceport as a staging ground, ready to spread the "Greater Good"
Giddeon Prime - Landing
As the campaign fever spread, everyone took their initial 1st turn. )Wanted to wait a week, but...) the season was rolled.......and the campaign started in the "Winter"

Force markers were placed and the armies marched forward.

  • Chaos secured the northern lands and the nearby power station.
  • The Eldar forces did not advance, choosing get the abandoned manufactorium and power station working.
  • The DE surged towards the Hive City, wishing to test themselves against the Daemons.
  • Sensing the approaching forces the Daemons moved to intercept the Tau forces.
  • The Necrons slowly moved to the Hive City going around the approaching IG.
  • The Longtails attempted to force the Necrons back but were held off by the unyielding machines.
  • The Black Templars moved to engage the approaching DE.
  • The Tau cautiously moved forward and were caught in the Daemon advance, a brief battle was fought over the manufactorium. The Tau retreating to regather their forces.
Winter - Turn#1
Note: The paint pot is a temporary marker for the Tau.

A very uneventful turn. The mood was grim, mostly due to the crappy weather and noisy kids, as everyone packed up to leave. The gears could be heard turning ans schemes and plans were formed. The next Turn looks to be a bloody one.

The map is not as crowded as I thought it would be. A few open spaces will make for some intense battles.
