Vacuna Reclamation Campaign

Vacuna Reclamation Campaign
Round 3

Orks vs Daemons Tzeentch
mission- All Around Defence

'Eadsplitta's boyz were rocketing towards the outskirts of the Hive City, smoking ruins flew passed them as each boy engaged the turbo boost button on their bikes. Big Mek Lugnutz had fashioned a Homing Beacon for his prized Mek Rokks to drop down from low orbit. These Rokks were essential for Lugnutz to construct his Dread Mob. 'Eadsplitta's mission was to secure enough scraps and raw materials to supple the Mek to build massive engines of death.

The Daemons of Nurgle took a heavy toll on 'Eadsplitta's horde of boyz. Vehicles laid scattered and belching thick black smoke like huge pieces of coal. He need reinforcements soon and badly if he was to maintain control of the Hive City of Vacuna.

As 'Eadsplitta arrived shimming shapes of hideous creatures appeared from out of nothing. Gibbering pink deamons hurdle warp fire as the Ork horde approached the homing beacon. The Lootas took up position around the beacon and unloaded with their oversize Deffguns.

Huge Battlewagons crammed full of Boyz ready for a fight slammed straight into newly formed daemons squashing them into pink puddles of goo. The Nobz on bikes unleashed a torrent of fire at the daemon hordes in front of them, and with the help of the Lootas perched on top of the ruins, cut a bloody path through the legions of Tzeentch.

Two enormous shapes of flesh and machine formed almost on top of 'Eadsplitta and his retinue of boyz. The Warboss though, this is going to be a fight to remember and order his boyz to engage this new horrendous threat.

The Boyz in the Battlewagons were foaming at the mouth to get stuck in this fight and soon as their eyes saw the Warboss engage those enormous monsters from the warp, they piled out of their ram-shackled rides and assaulted the massive daemon-engines.

'Eadsplitta was wounded horrendously, but an outflanking detachment of Warbikers had come in the nick-of-time to swing the battle in favor of the Orks and a few Nobz with hungry power klaws made short work of the final Soulgrinders.

The Ork Beacon was activated and Big Mek Lugnutz was working to make a massive Dread Mob for the coming battle .

Vacuna Reclamation Campaign

Second Round
Orks vs Daemons 1750pts
mission- Surprise Attack, from the mission book
This is part of an ongoing campaign that my local group is running and is more of a narrative type campaign.

Warboss 'Eadsplitta and his boyz had just finished wiping out a small detachment of Ultramarines lead by Captain Sicarius when he ordered the boyz to make for the outskirts of the Hive-city to setup a rally point for the incoming Rokkz that were coming with reinforcements. The SpaceMarines had given ' Eadsplitta's boyz a run for their money but the Boyz came through and got stuck in and gave them a good stompin that any Ork would be proud of.

As the boyz encircled the hive ruins to setup a perimeter a strange and unpleasant smell filled the air almost choking the Warband in whole. From almost out of thin air shapes started to form, vile pus-filled shapes of hideous daemons and things only found in the imagination. Little nurglings ran with demonic speed towards the Loota squad camped out in the nearby Ruined Church, the Orks tried to gun the tiny daemons down , but they were quickly overrun by the pusfilled maggots of father Nurgle.

'Eadplitta realized Nurgle forces were surrounding him and his boyz, he quickly ordered all to engage at all cost towards this new threat of daemon incursion on his "home turf " . 'Eadsplitta saw in the distances the form of a huge-bloated plaguebearer on top of a mountain of nurglings with and hourglass in one slimly arm and in the other a rusty blade. This figure seemed to be counting, counting what, 'Eadsplitta didn't really care only that this seemed a fitting opponent to kill and 'Eadsplitta wanted to kill some thing. As the 'Ardboyz, Nobz on bikes, and the two Massive Battlewagons advance, huge shapes form in front of them, enormous daemon prince and Beasts of Nurgle galloped forth like lapdogs halting the advance of the Ork wave. 'Eadsplitta and his most trusted Nobz, assaulted the Foul Daemon Prince of Nurgle and cut him down with Massive Power Klaws and Big Choppas. The Battlewagons squashed the beasts of Nurgle with their Spinning Deth Rollas as they advance towards the repulsive target of the tallyman of Nurgle himself.

The Orks fought hard against this new foul enemy they encountered, but the gibbering hordes of Chaos where just too much for crude choppas and sluggas that the Orks possessed. Only the strongest of the Orks manage to pull themselves to survive the massive onslaught that the servants of Nurgle unleashed on them.

'Eadsplitta knew he had to cut his losses or he too would find himself under corruption of Chaos. The Massive Warboss, turned his bike towards the horizon as the last of his Boyz feel under the unrelenting force of a thousand tiny nurglings as they overran the boyz around the smoking Battlwagons that they had manage to cripple with fellow nurglings themselves. 'Eadsplitta would live to fight another day and as soon as the Rokks had dropped out of orbit he would have the reinforcements to fight the "umies" but also this new Demonic threat as well.

The game ends with 11kill points to 11kill points - Draw
