Vraks: A Farewell to Templates

Today Scott came over with his Death Korps of Krieg and we played a 2500pt a side Vraks slugfest, partly as a farewell to 7th edition.  And man, it's good that blast markers are going away in 8th edition because I think we wore ours out in this battle!

We had been working our way through the actual Imperial Armour 5-7 missions, originally intending to play through the whole Vraks campaign, but that fell by the wayside after the first 3 (?) scenarios.  Instead we went with this, with his DKoK against my renegades, represented by my Scythiak Usurpation and assisted by sonofsonsoftaurus commanding my Steel Legion/Merkan 76th figures towards the top of this pic (chaos right flank) (renegades using regular IG rules).  With the Death Korps loaded down with artillery pieces, our only hope was to swarm across no man's land as fast as we could and close with the guns.  The whistles blew and we were off!

Who the feth moved my cheese?

As man took to the stars in the distant past, he took many creatures from Earth with him, some intentionally, some less so.  As in the age of sail, wherever Man went, Rat went as well.

Over tens of thousands of years some changed.  Exactly what the catalyst was is unknown - perhaps the influence of the warp, perhaps the continued effect of experimentation with the sciences of the Dark Age of Technology, perhaps an intentional uplifting to create disposable workers or soldiers, perhaps a combination of them all, mixing and breeding.  But regardless of the cause in the 41st Millenium another race contests the stars, often from within and underneath the works of the Imperium.

While some consider them a form of the aberrant beastmen, offshoots of humanity itself, or some strand of alien, this is not the case.  Known by various names - Ratmen, the Nimh, and many others this plague lurks ready to strike when conditions are right.
