The Fall of Corian IV: Mission 6 - Keep Them Running

Hi all

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

As always commenst are most welcome and thankyou for reading.


Read on for Mission 6

Mission 6 – Keep them Running                   Worth – 3 Victory Points

Mission Type
Implacable Advance (Battle Missions) The attacker will take the role of the Necrons.

2500 points per side.

The attacker has made the first defence line fall back. Now is the time to really apply the pressure and keep on their tails. The commander of the attacking forces has decided to push his forces right up to the next defence line and secure supply lines as they go. The attacker must capture as much ground as possible and attempt to press on into the new enemy front line before night fall if possible.

Mission Outcomes

Attacker Wins (2-1 objectives or 2-0 objectives) - The attacking force has managed to capture a considerable amount of land and force the enemy back a bit faster than before. The next game will have the night fight rules in effect for turns 5, 6 and 7(if 6 and 7 are played). This represents the enemy falling back quickly but not quickly enough for the attacking forces to reach the new enemy front line before night fall.

Attacker Wins (3-0 objectives) – The attacking force has smashed any remaining resistance aside and gained all the land between here and the new enemy front line. So quick was the retreat that the attacking force has managed to reach the new front line while it’s still daytime. The night fight rules will not take effect. In addition the enemy force has been caught off guard. The enemy must place heavy support options in reserve in the next game.

Defender Wins (2-1 objectives or 2-0 objectives) – the defenders have managed to hold up the attacking force just long enough to force them to fight on into the night in order to engage the next defence line. The defender may choose the whether to have the night fight rules in effect from turn 4 onwards or turn 5 onwards.

Defender Wins (3-0 objectives) – the defender has held up the attacking force for such a long time that the attack has stalled. It will most likely resume in the next day or two but it will allow the defenders to prepare their defences better. The defender will be allowed to deploy tanks from the beginning of the next games rather than having to keep them in reserve. However dedicated transports must still be held in reserve along with its unit.

Draw – Play the next mission as normal with none of the above modifiers.

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.

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)

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.
