Daily Waaaghs

Postby Father Joe » Wed Feb 07, 2007 3:39 pm

Seeing as both my opponents enjoy my writing AND 40k, I have decide try posting these events here in an attempt to continue growing my ego.

Game: 40k
Armies: Tau(x2), and Space Marine.
Points: 100.
Special Rules: 40k in 5min.
Scenario: Eliminate Hostiles.

Army Lists
Tau 1(yellow jackets)
2 gun drones
Fire Warriors

Tau 2(silver bullets)
Straight up Warriors

Marines(repented, by yours truely)
2 Veteran Sarges(one with Storm Bolter)
1 Marine
1 Marine w/ Heavy bolter

The area was an Imperial Research center inbetween two rock hills. On one end of the building lay the Yellow Jacket caste, the other stood the Silver Bullets. Recent tensions has developed into trading blows for diverged views of the Greater Good. These blows attracted the attention of a Space Marine Squad stationed in the mountain. This is their story.

Turn 1
While the Marines set up to observe the two factions(all moves, no shots), the Yellow Jackets saw their actions as hostile and immediately opened fire. Brother BlueRum caught several pulses to the face and perished. The Silver Bullets, having heard battle, moved closer to the research center for cover.

Turn 2
Startled by the power of the Tau fire, Brother Sargeant Nicoli dragged his fallen bretheren back up the mountain, his Storm Bolter kicking in the other hand. Even as the Drones rained the super-heated electrodes into the rocks, the Sarge didn't leave his comrade behind. Brother Fredric and Brother Sarge Marken hurried to flank the Drones, but the mechanical beasts had already fallen back. All the while, the Yellow Jackets and the Silver Bullets played out a scene more common in spagetti westerns as both lines fired pulse after pulse at each other along the length of the center. Unfortunately, the Yellow Jackets played the role of the bad guys, as each one of them was defeated by a single pulse to the chest.

Turn 3
The burdened Sarge regrouped with his brothers as the Heavy Bolter made quick work of the remaining Drones. The Yellow Jacket caste was no more.
The Silver Bullets heard the sound of bolter fire and decided better of it, retreating towards the edge of the table.

Turn 4
"We shall not let this sin go unpunished!" The grieving Sarge barked at the other two. With new targets to fight, they lifted their weapons high and yelled "REEEPEEEEEENT!" as they bounded towards the research center. Little did they know that their enemy had already fled the battle.

Aftermath
Silver Bullets wins by having the most kills.
Repented wins by controlling the map by the end of the game.
Yellow Jackets lost.


::::::::::::::
Yesterday
Same armies, different costs.
Because the Silver Bullets had killed the most enemies, they recieved a couple of their own drones.
The Repented Marines also recieved several points extra for making kills, able to revive their lost brother. But the two Sarges were demoted for cost.
So in short...
Silver: 70pts
Repented: 70pts
Jackets: 60pts

The scenario: All Out War!!! 6 turns to kill everybody.

The layout:
Just over the hills a similair battle was unfolding around the McInny ranch. The Marines were able to secure the building quickly, but to the far North the Silver Bullets were setting up along a line of sand bags the farmers had used just moments before. But now their fire shifted to the approaching Yellow Jackets, causing the small fire team to duck behind a silo just North East of the ranch house.

Turn 1
With news reaching their HUDs of a Marine team sitting behind the house, the Yellow Jackets took up positions along the horse tough. Meanwhile, the Silver Bullets recieved the same information and split into two teams: a four rifle team to hit the Marines, and a two rifle - two drone team to hit the renegade Tau caste. The Drones were the only ones to fire this round, but all it amounted to was a dead bird 500ft in the air. But just as the Silver Bullets were getting into position, their lead rifleman spotted a very large barrel sticking out from around the house. Sure enough, it was a Repentor with a Missile Launcher lining up his shot out of the range of the pulse rifles!

Turn 2
The Yellow Jackets held their ground against the hail of badly aimed pulse fire and did nothing else. The Silver Bullets didn't wish to do the same, as the four rifle team quickly retreated behind the large hill of sand bags. All the while the two drones sprayed away at imaginary targets along the dirt and the two rifle team popped shots at the embedded Yellow Jackets. Paniced by the Drones' fire, one unfortunate Jacket backed too far away from the silo and fell victim to the Bullets' shots. The Repentors, giving a quick smile to the small victory, moved swiftly to the other side of the house to do the same to the Yellow Jackets.

Turn 3
After a quick change of underwear, the Yellow Jackets regained its balls and decided to get ballsy. As one they moved away from their protective silo to hit the Repentors around the house. Meanwhile on the otherside of the board, the four Silver rifles inched back into position, expecting it to explode. The Drones, getting tired of shooting at Tau, flew straight for the ranch house. Their scanners picked out the heads of the four Repentor helmets digging along the roof of the house and opened fire. The ranch owner cursed as the pulse fire created many holes for the acidic rain to leak through. But the Repentors didn't seem to notice as five Tau Fire Warriors came into view. They froze in their tracks and took aim, letting loose a hail of bolter fire and one frag missile. The missile turned out to be an effective dud, hitting its intended target (the head of one of the Jackets) but didn't explode. The bolts seemed to be ineffective against the strange Tau armor.

Turn 4
The heavens above split open to reveal a very ticked off Chuck Norris. In a single breath he bellowed "The Library closes in five minutes whether you're packed or not!"

Aftermath
The Marines managed to survive without any casualties, as did the Silver Bullets. But the Yellow Jackets will be burying a couple of their warriors under the old oak tree tonight.

:::::::::::::::
Today
As the small battles dot the map of this unfortunate planet, the true Heroes of our story meet for the first time in battle.
Points: 80
Three "heroes" each.
Scenario: Captive.

Note: The names of the two Tau factions has changed. The Silver Bullets are now the Silver Hunters, and the Yellow Jackets are the MechDragons. They are indeed "lovin' it."

Silver Hunters
One of the Repentors' guardsmen was caught by the Silver Hunters transporting one of the sacred lunchboxes of the Gods (collect all 12!). Using this to their advantage, they placed the poor soul on top of one of the numerous barns of Planet Varres to taunt the opposing forces. But little did they know it only upset them even more, as several Marines and MechDragon caste Tau came into view. "Hold you position and let the Drones take care of them!" The leader of the Hunters commanded his troops, "But if you see their heads, unleash [Tau version of Hell]."

Repentors
"Brother Sarge, I have spotted the lunchbox." One Repentor said to his superior.
"Good spot check. Now keep a roll ready for those Tau-"
"Tau, right flank!" Another Marine shouted.
Before the Sarge could make a remark to the Emperor, a whimpy voice came over their headsets.
"Marines, this is the MechDragons. We seek only to destroy this deviance for the Greater Good and wish no harm to your kin. We shall not fire at you, do the same to us."
"Agreed." The Sarge replied and cut the transmission.
"Brother Thaddeus, stay behind and cover with the Launcher. Hendrix, Orthos, we shall retrieve the lunchbox. Repent!"

MechDragons
A continuous beeping signaled the ended call. The commander gave a wide grin and chuckled to himself.
"Those fools. How they survived to be Repentors I will never know. Alright, heres the plan: grab the box, kill the diverged caste and avoid the Marines. Now go! For the Greater Good!"
The five following Tau Fire Warriors raised their rifles and cheered for their leader.

Turn 1
The Drones of the Silver Hunters moved silently into position near the hidden MechDragons, keeping their carbines pointed at...something. Who can tell with a BS that low? The MechDragons, their ears unhearing, charged out from their secluded spot. All the while three of the four Repentors hobbled over their cover and made a mad dash for the barn. The remaining Marine aimed his Launcher at the two Drones and let loose a Frag Missile. Although a hit, the "frag" part could have used some work as neither drone fell. One of them simply cursed in l33t.

Turn 2
Targets all around, the two Drones held down the paste key for the "fire" order. What the bird did to deserve to be hit by such a barrage of pulse fire I don't know, but they unloaded into the creature none the less, leaving the MechDragons to stand around puzzled. Realizing their mistake, the Drones wizzed behind solid terrain to recharge. After a second to shake off the thinking process, the MechDragons continued what they were doing: charging and yelling blindly. As did the three Repentors. The fourth, Thaddeus, stood ready with his Missile Launcher and played a game of solitare with the other hand.

Turn 3
The Drones recharged their carbines and charged back onto the field guns blazing. In all his luck, one MechDragon had finally called it quits and accepted death under a hail of fire. Pleased with this, the drones LOLed and flew off to post this event on their blogs. The MechDragons didn't seem to realize what was happening and continued to use Ork tactics to reach the barn. As did the Marines. Thaddeus, by this point, had already used the bathroom and ordered a pizza.

Turn 4
The Drones popped shots, the MechDragons got to 2ish inches to the front of the barn, and the three Marines continued to scream "For the Emporer!". But during all of this, Thaddeus realized something. His helmet zoomed in closely upon the lunchbox, and his suspitions were correct! It carried several Idaho potatoes! It was the lunchbox of the Chaos God Fuchismo!
In a torrent of anger and suprize, the lone Marine loaded a Krak Missile, screamed "Spuds for the Spud God!", and pressed the fire button.

Turn 5
The Silver Hunters, ever patient behind their barn, was suddenly very shaken to have red blood shower their position. They clambered over the roof of the barn to see a single marine in the distance with a smoking Missile Launcher. As well as five yellow Tau standing right below them. In a panic of tactics, the Silver Hunters emptied their clips at the oncoming enemy, only to hit a rabbit in the hill side. The MechDragons took careful aim during this panic and were able to eliminate two Hunters. The Marines closed in on the other side of the barn and killed one as well.

Turn si- damn. Five to 3. The library is going to close soon....

Aftermath
2 Hero kills for the Repentors(including the Captive)
2 Hero kills for the MechDragons
Silver Hunters gain 20pts for winning (the captive did die)
Its was a draw.

The next day...
Scenario: King of the Hill.
Points: 100
MechDragons: Bunch a Tau
Silver Hunters: That and two Drones
Repentors: 3 Marines, a Sarge and a Missile Launcher

Pleased with their recent battle, the small squad retreated to their scout post for beer and TV. Upon arrival, they realized they were out of popcorn and placed an order to have one paradropped at the base. This would lead to their demise...
Alittle off center, the package of popkorne landed off target on top of a hill. Though the hill was very close, the plane had attracted the likes of the feuding Tau factions!
"Quickly!" Sarge yelled to his troops, "We must save the food from these vultures!"

Turn 1
The MechDragons eyed the container of buttery goodness with eager looks.
"Just think of how many pieces of toast we can serve with that much butter." The leader whispered to his troops, "and its all there for the taking."
The rifle squad needed no more inspiration as they bounded towards the grassy hill. Thaddeus, sitting on top of the scout post with his Launcher in tow, spotted the herd of yellow Tau running to reach his prized snack. Without thought or hesitation, he aimed his tube-o'-doom and fired...a krak missile. Tactical reasoning aside, the missile flew true, sending one perplexed MechDragon tumbling through the air. Meanwhile, on the otherside of the hill, the Silver Hunters lurked behind solid cover...

Turn 2
Undaunted by the minor set back, the MechDragons flung themselves up the small slopes. Sarge led his own charge up the hill with three other Marines to help. Thaddeus, while known for his exellent aim with a launcher, wasn't in high praises for his reload time. This little fault in the Marine allowed two Silver Hunters to fire upon the approaching Marines. Pulse fire bore into the heavy armor, but did not puncture.

Turn 3
MechDragons. One can only speculate what sort of genes where in their commander's pool that would make him send his warriors flying up a hill directly at an enemy that was renowned for their melee skills. Two is putting bets on Ork genes, while Bee and See are shooting for Hormagants. None the less, they continued their frenzied charge up the hill. The Marine Sarge saw their silouettes popping up and screamed, "By the Emporer's golden microwave! We must not let them get the sweet treats!" As one the four Marines charged at the Tau, but due to dietary problems were unable to get within the 6 inches. "Cover Me!" Sarge yelled, his chainsword roaring to life. (Good thing he didn't eat that spagetti dinner) The three other Marines shouldered their bolters and let loose a torrent of Emporer blessed Hell, all the while their Sarge used his Fleet Feet to close the distance(earned it from last game). Two MechDragons used their bodies as moving targets and were pierced by white hot metal, whilst two more forgot how to do the limbo under the chainsword. Thaddeus would have enjoyed this spectical, if he wasn't busy shooting a frag missile at the Silver Hunters. And then swearing at them in Javascript about their cover bonus....and throwing a temper tantrum...

Turn 4
Letting the buttery goodness go straight to their heads, the three remaining MechDragons jumped upon the large crate of popcorn. One jumped into the waiting arms of a Marine, who gave him his last bear hug. "Hold it with your lives, comrades! For the Butter Good!" The Leader shouted as his weapon kicked in his arms. Pulse fire danced along the armored bodies, searching for a way through. One found a weak point in the helmet of an unfortunate Marine and went for it. And to the pulse's dismay, didn't find a chewy inside. Just alot of empty space...BACK TO THE STORY! RIpping his sword from a Tau body, the Sarge turned around and gasped in horror. The vile xenos were defiling the packaging! "Get back here!" He bellowed as he brought up his chainsword to slay the Tau. But then his brain said "Urk!" and let loose of the controls. A pulse had lodged itself into the back of his head, with many more following it. The Silver Hunters had broken cover and fired round after round into the largest targets they saw: The Marines. After releasing the loved-to-death MechDragon, Hendrix was on the verge of jumping to cover when some text caught his eye. "with artificial flavoring" the crate said. In that split second, a shot pierced his back and his second heart. Heart broken both figuratively and literaly, he fell upon the wooden package, muttering "I can't believe its not butter...uuughllleeehhhhh".

Soon after watching Sarge and two marines fall under an unseen enemy's fire, Thaddeus remembered there was still alittle ice cream left in the fridge and decided that would make an excellent substitute.

Aftermath
Marines gained 6 kills and lost the foot hold
MechDragons gained the buttery goodness
Silver Hunters gained 3 kills
MechDragons win!
"There's no double cheese burger in the universe that tastes like victory. Except for ours!" The Leader.
