Jacobite Rebellion using Black Powder

Second week of a bit Jacobite Rebellion game finished last night. This was played using the Black Powder rules.

Excellent fun was had and the game was balanced on a knife edge right up to the end and it really could have swung either way!

Anyway, here are a few shots courtesy of EssexWargamer (that's me :-D).

Week Two

So it's week two of our Apocalypse 40k game and the Tyranids have finally reached the guard lines.

The Valkyries swoop in to deal death and destruction, dropping several squads of stormtroopers.

Things don't go well though and two Valkyries are quickly brought down by leaping Carnifexes!

Who then burst through the guard line.

To the right of this action, Commissar Yarrick and his Ogryns face down the horde.

While on the other side of the command building, more Carnifexes rip through a baneblade and into the Executioner and Stormsword behind.

But Yarrick and his Ogryns fight on.

Even when the Carnifexes run amock, taking out his supporting baneblade, Yarrick is undaunted.

At the end of week two the Guard centre is looking in very bad shape. They look like soon losing their last superheavy too.

But things are going better on the left and there is still a significant guard reserve to bring on.

Wednesday night Apocalypse

This week we started a new fabulous Barker brothers 40k Apocalypse game. Tyranids vs. Imperial Guard.

Hive fleet Pod has drifted into the Imperial system of Grainger Prime and quickly begun its terrible harvest. With little hope of relief, the local Imperial Guard commanders must eradicate the infestation before it can take hold.

Updated situation repot to follow...
