The holidays mean only one thing to a hobby geek: time off to play wargames!
Given the luxury of not playing to an event’s strict timing, I got together to play a large scale 4,000pt Dark Compliance themed list (Word Bearers and Warp Cultist Militia) against the Iron Warriors of Sam from Six Up Save.
I was pleased to be able to get out my 4’x8′ Secret Weapon Miniatures Urban Tablescape board which I finished painting last year, but hadn’t actually managed to find time to play a game on!
I wanted to frame a narrative reason for the Traitor on Traitor battle and so I suggested a loose idea around Perturabo seeking additional information around the Black Oculus (alluded to in Tallarn: Ironclad), leading him into a conflict with my Warp Cultists, The Covenant Of The Octet Pantheon.
In game terms this translated into playing the Mission War of Lies using my daemonic monument objective markers.
All in it was a great game and the perfect finish to my 2016 hobbying – all armies & terrain fully painted, closely fought to the last turn with the Iron Warriors narrowly winning out on the final victory point count.
