The Fall of Corian IV: Mission 9 - From the Skies It Came

Hi all

Today I bring the ninth mission for the Fall of Corian IV campaign. After this there is only 1 more so make sure you come back tomorrow to have a look.

As always comments are most welcome and thankyou for reading.


Read on for Mission 9

Mission 9 – From The Skies It Came                                Worth – 2 Victory Points

Seize Ground, Spearhead
There will be 5 objectives in this mission.



The attackers advance has been slowed down by continuous bombing by enemy aircraft and shelling from artillery. However a plane was shot down and it crashed landed not too far from where the attacking force is deployed. Scouts report that the enemy have secured the wreck and appear to be looking for something in the wreckage. A medium sized force has been assembled and sent out to see if they can’t dissuade the enemy form their salvage operation.

 Mission Special Rules

All is not what is seems – The Defenders have not only been looking for something among the wreckage but also rigging it to explode as a surprise for any attacking force that comes poking around. Every time an attacking unit tries to capture an objective roll a D6. On the roll of a 1 or 2 they have set off the explosives. Place the large blast template over the objective. Any models under or partially covered by the template will suffer a D3 S7 AP- hit. Vehicles can’t trigger the explosives but if they are caught by the template they will be hit on the side armour. Once an objective has been triggered remove it from play. Neither side will benefit from what it was.

Objectives – Mark each objective with a number from 1 to 5 and place them in the appropriate position as defined by the mission set up. At the end of the game make a note of the number on the bottom of each objective your side has captured, even if you have fewer objectives and lost the game. This represents spoils of war and the total will be used in the final mission.

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.

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)
