Battle Shot! Orks Vs. Tau
Last weekend our good friend Fiend came down to visit. We had alot of fun just hanging out, playing Chaos in the Old World, Space Hulk, and 40K!
We had a 1K point battle with his Orks against my Tau. The mission was Seize Ground with a Pitched Battle Deployment.
Start of the game, Fiend runs a trukk towards my hammerhead loaded with 12 boyz, which promptly gets destroyed.
My Kroot run through Lego Canyon towards the objective hidden in the jungle.
My hammerhead launches It’s submunitions at the lootas scoring a direct hit reducing the unit down to two models!
After failing to do any damage at all to the Ork Battlewagon my Crisis suits and HQ fail to get far enough away from the disembarking Nobz, Warboss, and Big Mek (counts-as).
The Nobz boss and mek Charge the crisis suits dealing plenty of wounds and knocking them right out of comission.
Ork Nobz charge past my fire warriors getting just in range of my second squad of suits and bringing them down, only to turn back for the objective they passed, taking a few wounds in the process.
After his squad of nobz was eliminated the warboss decides to seek revenge on the hammerhead, swiftly popping it with his power klaw.
All in all, a very fun game. Tau victory holding three objectives to the Orks one. Fiend was a tough opponent and had he done a few things differently the outcome could have definately been in his favor.
