Last Wednesday night my friend Daryl and I had a 1,000 point game of Warhammer 40k using my Steel Legion and his new Sisters of Battle army. We played the scenario "The Relic" from the core rulebook and it was a blast.
We started talking about it afterwards and decided to do a narrative rivalry between the two armies over who controls this relic of the Imperium.
I've decided to write up what happened in each game, not so much as a turn by turn battle report but as a journal of events. Keep in mind, that while my army is pretty well assembled and battle ready, his is a deep work in progress and he is still waiting on the new models to release.
As such there some heavy proxying and grey plastic happening in his current army. There's also some on my end too, as I try new units out. But it's all pretty casual and for fun anyway. As we build and paint, it'll all look nicer, but for now it is what it is.
As I mentioned earlier, this week's game was a 1,000 point match and we randomly determined the scenario, which ended up being The Relic. We went with base rulebook scenarios and deployments to keep it simple, since Daryl had never played Sisters before.
Deployments were also chosen from the rulebook and randomly determined. We ended up with the shallow triangle deployment zone, which has each starting area peaked in the middle and 9" from the center of the table.
Let's get to it.
