The Fall of Corian IV: Mission 5 - The Allies Show Themselves

Hi all

Today I bring the fifth mission for the Fall of Corian IV campaign.

I'd also like to say that I'm looking forward to Zebulon getting back into the Lord of The Rings game again (see post below this one). It'll be good to play it again seen as we haven't played The Lord of the Rings for about 4+ years.

As always comments are most welcome and thanks for reading

Mission 5 – The Allies Show Themselves         Worth – 3 Victory Points

Type
Prepared Assault (Battle Missions). The attacker takes on the role of the Imperial Guard.

Points
1500 per side

Objective
After the town was captured, some of the attacking forces were sent to pursue the fleeing defenders. There have only been a few to return so far. The presence of forces other than the traitor guardsmen has been reported by those who have returned though how accurate this is, is unclear at best. However a camp was sighted 10 miles west of the town from low orbit. Scouts were dispatched to the area but haven’t been seen since. A strike force is been assembled and sent out to see what’s there and secure it.

Layout
Set up as shown in Battle Missions. Set up ruins, buildings, etc around the two objectives placed on the board at the beginning to represent the defenders camp.

Mission Outcomes

Attacker Wins – They have managed to capture the enemy camp forcing them to abandon it. It has also caused the main enemy line to fall back across the entire region because of the hole now in it.  To try and capitalise on this the attacker’s forces will all gain an additional 200 points in the next mission.

Defender wins – They may have lost and had to fall back to the next line of defence but are far from beaten. The next defence line is even tougher than the first and the defender will dig in and hold on for as long as it takes. The defender will gain an additional 250 points in mission 7.

Start Collecting Skitarii Review

Hey all, today I'm giving my little review on the new Start Collecting Skitarii box. Firstly for a GW price of  £50 ($85) these are exceptional value, in this box set the Dunewalker is £40, Rangers/Vanguard £23.50 and the Dominus £22. Even at £50, that's a £35.50 saving. If you're like me and bought it from an online store ( Goblin Gaming for me, 20% discount and £3.90 postage, just under 50% off standalone retail price)


Scenery: Imperial Sector Buildings WIP

Hi all

Its been a while since anything new was posted on SotA which I think has been due to both myself and Zebulon having a little break from doing anything major. I've been tinkering with a few bits and pieces for the last few weeks and now find myself ready to get back into the swing of things.

So first up are the buildings from the Imperial Sector box. I was lucky enough to find this box in my local store at the old price of about £52 rather than the new £70 price. I hadn't intended to buy it but I knew I'd regret not buying it. It took me a couple of weeks to assemble the buildings which was slow by my standards (due to the decreased nature of hobby activities).

So lets get on with the pictures.


Drakwald Carnalites Minotaur WIP

Hey all.l,

I'm back today with the first WIP for my Carnalites. As somewhat of a tester for the team I picked the Minotaur as he has both armour and skin/fur that can be translated across the team.
