League game against Leonard's orks, my 1400pts against his 1100. While I had been getting pummeled by various marine armies Leonard has been on a good run, hence our point disparity (for those just joining us, for this league we started at 1000pts and when you lose a game you get +100pts). We used missions James M had written up, and our combination led us to a very heavy board control mission, with objectives in each quadrant and quadrants as objectives themselves, plus the normal first blood, etc.
Our current league is going to run through the end of the year and we have been thinking about what might come next. Here are some WIP ideas I have been mulling over for our 40K group's next organized play event. Thought I'd share for input and in case anyone else might find it a useful starting point for their own groups.
If you want a good picture of a Chaos uprising in 40K, ISIS/ISIL/Islamic State seems like a pretty good model.
Take advantage of existing unrest, turning it to own ends.
Absorb turncoats into your ranks and make use of captured equipment.
Destroy rival religious sites and iconography.
Atrocity as a goal itself as much as a tool or byproduct.
A lot is similar to other revolutionary movements of course. You could easily put a Chaotic spin on numerous past events and movements - the French Revolution, the Khmer Rouge, various religious conflicts, etc. and use them as an inspiration for a Lost and the Damned force. If you're looking for inspiration from GW sources, check out my Lost and the Damned Bibliography.
“Power is not a means; it is an end. One does not establish a
dictatorship in order to safeguard a revolution; one makes the
revolution in order to establish the dictatorship. The object of
persecution is persecution. The object of torture is torture. The object
of power is power.” - George Orwell (1984)
While the Arch-heretic Astrakenor has been taken by the Dark Angels, the Scythiak don't let that interrupt their plans for conquest!
Another league game with Mike S and his Dark Angels, with me at 1400pts, him at 1200. With my point totals having crept upwards I figured it was time to break out the Ogryn. So backed up by a psyker and two priests the big fellas took the field. Mike brought along a dreadnought, the perfect tool for crunching Ogryn if it could get into combat, and a whirlwind, terror to hordes of light troops everywhere. Could be rough! We rolled up a game of Scouring with Vanguard Strike deployment.
Terrain has been the name of the game here lately. Our league group has been talking about more terrain, and we had a hobby day to work on some today. The day before, sonofsonsoftaurus and I worked on a few pieces to bring along as well. Above is the volcano I built and we both worked on painting, along with ork for scale.
