Bunker Assault Battle Review!!!

Sigh... the pics didn't turn out as I had hoped.

This post was supposed to a huge all bells and whistles first attempt at a full fledged battle report. But alas after the pics were uploaded some mysteriously vanished. Intelligence reported warp activity but I suspect Sisters of Battle and Imperial Guard saboteurs. They must have broke into my home and stole the evidence of their crushing defeat by my Blood Angels that night. Now all I'm left with to share are piece meals of their stunning defense of their base in the midst of an Imperial witch hunt. Praise the true Emperor!

A Blood Angels sentry looks out from a cave complex at the Imperial drop force as it lands close to their base.

The IG prepare to unleash hell upon the Heritic Blood Angels defense lines as they hope to distract them as Cannoness Estras holy Sisters advance to flamer range

Direct Hit!!! The Imperial Guard smash a quarter of the Blood Angels defensive line! Three space marines fall to the battlecannon. The two remaining flee into the base as their moral temporally buckles beneath the weight of the onslaught.

The Holy Predator Invictus spots Cannoness Estra and her retainers. The Emperors esteemed tank cuts her squad in half as the bolts fly.

As the offensive rages against their brothers, Terminators, the finest of the Emperor, deep strike directly behind the Imperial Guard command squad wiping them out with a single volley of storm bolter fire

Cannoness Estra, leading from the front, suffers a wound by the Blood Angel sergeant. In the following turn he will dig his chainsword through her power armor, sending the witch to the abyss

More intelligence photos of the battle as it's forth turn comes to an end. You can see the Imperial Guard forces nearly smashed as the Terminators move in and finally destroy the Leman Russ. The sisters advance to the bunker and behind them the Inquisitorial squad takes cover behind the destroyed Razorback. As the Blood Angels finally put an end to Cannoness Estra the Predator Invictus inches forward bringing it's guns to bear upon the Inquisitions foot soldiers. The heavy bolters and autocannon make short work of the squad.

The valiant last assault of the Sisters of Battle into the Blood Angel base. The Sisters attempt to cleanse the galaxy of their rebellion as their flamers douse the bunker in holy fire. Unsuccessful the Emperors finest finally fend off the false Inquisition as Thunderhawk Gunships circle overhead and Drop Pods pepper the surrounding area. The Blood Angels salvation finally arrives from the skies and decimates the remaining Battle Witches

The last survivors of 1st and 2nd squads together with the Predator Invictus join with the last surviving Devastator Sgt and Terminators for a victory photo. Praise be to the Emperor for his protective hand!

Dude, I saw the first couple of pics and thought "are you playing on your bed?" It wasn't till I scrolled down a little further 'till I figured it out. Quite an ingenious way to cover up the table.

Yeah the blanket is perfect for a desert/ wasteland board. However the genius belongs with my wife who noticed our bedspread made for a bitchen battlefield (heh and she doesn't even play this stuff:)

Mate, you either need to upload your pics to blogger or just link to them on photobucket as they're all to big for the column.

From what I've seen, nice ........
