Dan is moving back to Poland and that makes me sad. He’ll still be visiting Ireland for business, so there’s a good chance we’ll get games in the future. However, I’m losing a regular gaming friend. We’ve always had tight games and last night’s games were no exception.
We decided to play a couple of Commanders games at 200pts, but other than that we had no plan. I diced for the first mission and it turned out to be Extraction, so we decided that Dan’s Painboy, Garag Skullfixa, had gotten a little too inquisitive and had wandered off to see if he could scavenge any ‘spare parts’ from a nearby battlefield. He was hit by a sniper bullet and when he didn’t return on time the boyz went looking for him!
Game 1: Extraction
Game 2: Tip of the Spear
The boyz weren’t too impressed by the running away antics of Garag Skullfixa (he might be just a medik/mechanik, but he’s still an Ork!), so he was trying to redeem himself by leading an assault on the Deathwatch.
My Chaplain fell, but the Orks are starting to waver. Let’s see if they break before they overrun the Deathwatch. pic.twitter.com/CXEEKQyyWi— Owen Conlan (@oconlan) August 22, 2019
So, there you have it, an ad-hoc mini-campaign spawned from the random selection of a Narrative mission.
I wish Dan all the best on his return to Poland and I look forward to our next game, where ever it may be!
Until next time,
