Turn 1

Pic 1

As turn 1 starts with the Junkers winning the initiative, they start by moving men forward in an attempt to gain ground. When it comes to the Vasa turn, the Sniper climbs the hill and snap fires, rolling a 10, he hits a Junker legionary but fails to cause a wound or shock.

The rest of the turn sees everyone rushing into forward positions. The Junkers heavy chaingun tries to get a better view of the enemy by climbing up the hill but the gun is too heavy, and the gunner fail his command check......rooting him to the ground for this turn!

Turn 2

Turn 2, the Vasa suppressor hugging the wreckage rattles off a burst of rounds at the Greater pit beast and causes a wound.

Pic 6

The Viridian HMG seeing that the beast is wounded tries to finish it off but can't get through its thick hide!

Pic 7

As the Viridians get into cover, they fire at the other Greater pit beast and manage to take a wound off. The two Pit beasts are now in a cross fire and it doesn't look good for them, as the Junkers and Secutors are too far away to help them with covering fire. The last thing to happen in the turn is the last marine to fire, takes out the Pit beast with another lucky shot and panics the commander retiarius. A terrible turn for the Junker/Gladiator alliance.

Gladiators withdraw


I have played a lot of multi player games in my time but I have never seen a massacre like this. The Junker/Gladiator alliance only managed to score 1 kill. The Viridian/Vasa alliance had masses of firepower and the man of the match for me was clearly the Red Guard as he scored a couple of kills and spread panic through the Junker ranks. Urban war works equally well with 4 teams or 2, have a go and see for yourself.

Until next time......wodge out!!!
