Salve Leitor.

 

E chegou a hora de publicarmos um novo battle report, um relato de batalha, aqui no blog. Recentemente publicamos nosso primeiro battle report em vídeo aqui no blog, mas desta vez retomo o formato narrativo normalmente empregado em meus artigos por aqui, contudo, se você não assistiu ao vídeo em questão peço a gentileza de conferir o artigo original e depois me dizer qual formato achou mais interessante. Agradeço desde já!

 

A batalha de hoje é uma continuação da narrativa que estamos tecendo ligando as partidas disputadas em Cuiabá, costurando nossos jogos em uma estória maior e, quem sabe, em breve em uma campanha narrativa. Nossa estória começou com o conflito entre os Black Templars e os Blood Angels pela posse de um artefato misterioso que acabou sendo levado pelos Blood Angels. Receosos em serem culpados pela perda da relíquia os Black Templars decidem apagar todos os traços de sua derrota, extirpando da existência toda a população de um planeta, começando pela Guarda Imperial no conflito mostrado em  Black Templars Vs Imperial Guard , agora conhecido como o “Massacre de Thraxx”. Após essa batalha houve um novo conflito fratricida onde após um ataque sorrateiro aos Space Marines do capítulo dos Salamanders os Black Templars tentam eliminar os sobreviventes, sendo surpreendidos pela intervenção da Legion of the Damned (conflito mostrado no  Black Templars Vs The Legion of the Damned) o que assegurou que noticias dos ataques Templários chegassem até o Império através dos Salamanders sobreviventes.

Hello Reader.

 

And it’s time for another battle report here on the blog. We’ve recently published our first battle report in video here on the blog, but this time I’m getting back to the narrative style of reporting on games I normally use here, however, if you haven’t checked our video, please do check it our today and let me know which kind you prefer.

 

Today’s battle is another sequel to the battles I’ve been playing with my friends and trying to sew into a larger narrative campaign soon. It all began with the Black Templars Vs Blood Angels conflict that saw the Blood Angels stealing some sort of relic from the grasp of the Templars, and followed by the battle featuring the Black Templars Vs Imperial Guard , now known as the “Massacre of Thraxx where the Templars started their mad crusade to expunge their failure in securing the relic. There was a 3rd conflict featuring the Black Templars Vs The Legion of the Damned where the Black Templars continued their mad attempt to silence an entire planet, but word of their doing got out with the surviving Salamanders that escaped their wrath.

Hello folks!

 

Finally, we get to the last article in this series! I admit I am a little late, but that’s not without reason. My studies, mostly, demanded a great share of my time and I couldn’t leave this aside. When the texts and seminars were done, I could get back to the hobby.

 

The last unit added to the army is another Tactical Squad, with a lascannon and a graviton gun as special weapons, and with a plasma pistol for the sergeant. The unit was build around the marines from the Assault on Black Reach boxed set, with the lascannon being a leftover from the Devastators box and the graviton gun a bit purchased in separate, as were the parts I needed for the rest of the unit, such as the legs.

Hello Reader.

 

We have another battle report today that continues the narrative from the battle reports posted recently here on the blog. The first of them featuring Black Templars Vs Blood Angels started this narrative being a “prequel” of sorts and the second one featuring the Black Templars Vs Imperial Guard continued that story.

 

This time around I played against Valter’s Black Templars using a unit from my Salamanders army and the Legion of the Damned a friend painted for me a while ago. We didn’t play an specific game mission, the idea being just having a bit of fun seeing toy soldiers killing each other and rolling some dice. Objectives were pretty straightforward, the Templars had to kill the Salamanders and the Salamanders only had to be alive at the end of the game.

 

So without further ado here it is.

Hello there Reader!

 

Today’s Battle report is a sequel of sorts to the battle report showcasing the armies of two of my friends (Valter’s Black Templars against Ton’s Blood Angels) I posted here on the blog a while ago. If you missed that report, please check it out.

 

This time around Valter’s Black Templars fight Hugo’s Imperial Guard in a no holds barred game. Without further ado, let’s get on with the report.

Hello there Reader.

 

I went home to spend the weekend a couple of weeks ago and invited a few friends over to share a few beers and roll some dice. I still haven’t gotten around to understanding how the new Eldar Codex works (and to be honest I don’t know where it is), so I just sat down to watch two Space Marine armies blowing each other to smithereens as Valter’s Black Templars tackled Ton’s Blood Angels.

 

I should say that watching their game unfold was a very good reminder of how Wargames are meant to be played: On a table with beautiful terrain and painted armies!

Hey folks!

 

The end of the “A Tale of X Gamers” project is approaching, at least for me! This month, my chosen unit was one of Terminators. I chose an assault configuration for two reasons, first because I didn’t have a unit like this yet, and also because some old fashioned hard hitting can be fun. I imagine a futuristic scene full of technology and firearms, and suddenly a highly protected enemy armour is opened by brutal hammer blows.

 

I also chose the Terminators because of their ability to enter the game by teleporting in, being deployed behind enemy lines and causing a lot of destruction. And in games where Deep Strike is forbidden, they count with enough protection to withstand the most part of enemy fire unharmed until they get where they’re needed. I used the thunderhammer and stormshield option because I intend to use them to bring down both characters and vehicles.

Hello folks!

 

We’re almost at the end of the challenge. In my last article, I mentioned some changes that some units had to undergo after the release of the actual Codex Space Marines. This month was dedicated for one of them: The Devastator Squad.

 

The Box of Devastators was bought some time ago, for the first article of this series. In this box there’s only a single missile launcher, so I needed 3 more in order to complete the squad as I wanted to field it. It wasn’t hard to get the bits for the rest of the unit as each Tactical Squad box also has a missile launcher, and since I already had two of those boxes, I got two more missile launchers from them. The last one I got from the Space Marines set from the old box of the Battle for Macragge, for about US$10,00. It is also from this set that I got the other 5 Space Marines I needed to complete the squad making it a 10 man unit. So, this month’s total cost was only US$10,00.
