Ciarán and I are the early risers in the house and we have a weekend ritual, usually on a Saturday or Sunday morning, where we make breakfast and sit down to watch a battle report, usually from either Play On Tabletop or Warhammer TV. This battle report inspired us to grab out some models and play the same mission.

The mission is Fuel Run from the Octarius rules and it sees both teams competing to siphon fuel from a central cylinder. I used Deathwatch and Ciarán fancied using the Genestealer Cults. We reckoned that rather than siphoning fuel, they teams were removing a biological agent that could be weaponised. Both factions wanted to ensure the Necrons didn’t get it. Anyway, here are some photos from the game.

The game was quick to play and while the Deathwatch came out on top, they didn’t have it all their own way, with four (!) being killed by the sneaky Xenos.

It’s fun when games are inspired by the things we watch. It helps to give a preview of the scenario and of the rules. I’m sure we’ll see more from the GSC and DW in future Zorg Beta II games.

Following the game Ciarán decided to set up a last stand diorama…

Until next time,
