Nearly a year ago Neil and I got together at his house and pitted his chaos renegade war band against my Sensei war band. The resultant clash, Battle of NIttin, saw The Sensei, Zander Van Zant and his war band having to retreat in tatters from the lair of Vlarg Half-Iron. One of the Sensei's war band , poor little Gerson, failed to recover from his injuries and while attempting to recover and lay their comrade to rest the Sensei were jumped by an imperial hunting party. In Escape from Gerson's Rest the Sensei managed to fight their way through the imperialists giving them a severe bloody nose.
Van Zant takes a shot with his Plasma pistol, damaging one of the engines.
We had a great game. It's nice getting more than one in a weekend. It seemed to be going all Neils way (apart from his morons) with Linz's imperials falling apart under the war bands onslaught. The surprise appearance of the droid nearly tipped the balance. I spent ages sneaking around hoping that Linz would be able to thin the chaos numbers down a bit before I made my move. However I was just a bit too slow, despite the Eldar hunter killing off three marines with ease. Still it now means we get to have a follow up game.
In the follow up rolls, most of Neils war band survived (only two guardsmen died and several had injuries) but he did receive a double roll on the new followers table, gaining 9 more guardsmen and a Ork renegade as well as a Skull face reward for Vlarg himself.
Van Zant's war band did well enough to gain and new reward for him (marksmen) and a new follower, a squat rebel leader!
