Yesterday I had the satisfaction of welcoming in my house my old oponent Fabio Barros. Fabio used to be my student and started playing Warhammer 40.000 after an exchange experience back in the day. We used to play together and I helped him build his Space Wolves army over 10 years ago. Yes, you’ve read that right. TEN YEARS AGO!
He has moved away since then and we lost touch (as I also moved away from our shared hometown) however we’ve recently restablished contact through Facebook and as he came home for the holidays I thought it would be nice for us to get together, chat and roll some dice with toy figures fighting on the table. Last time we had met I couldn’t offer him a drink (as he was underage back then) so it was high time we shared a drink as well.
Having been horribly beaten recently defeated by my mate Andre Mancini (there’s some photos of that game on the Instagram page of the blog), I thought it would be nice to wipe that grin of his face and wipe the floor with him pay him back the favor and I invited him over to play as well. As he showed up with his Dark Angels I thought it would be nice if me and Fabio got to face him using our Space Wolf armies.
I wish I knew what Andre had in store for us.
Battle had raged till the early hours of the day, but it had ceased some time ago. The Wolf Scouts sent to ascertain what had passed had returned and reported that Eldar forces had attacked and been crushed by the Dark Angels defending the orbital batteries a few miles west of their position.
Radio silence had been broken shortly after by one of the Blood Claw units stationed as sentries. Apparently the Dark Angels were converging on the position held by the small Space Wolves force and the orbital disembarking station in DUNUS IV. All attempts to reestablish contact with the Blood Claws after their first contact had been met with silence.
The face of the old Wolf Guard suddenly assumed a serious expression as he heard the news relayed by his second in command. “Send a request for reinforcements to Uffe Giantsbane e position our forces… We’ll be attacked soon!” commanded Hakon as he sat on his combat motorcicle.
With an incredulous look the younger Wolf Guard dared, as all young ones do, to challeng his senior “But they’re our allies Hakon”.
“Not when they’re trying to erase their sins puppy. Send my message” answered the old Space Wolf as he set off towards the armored tower which housed ammunition.
The huge wolf Grimnir growled its discontentment as its master reigned it in. The wolf’s muzzle ws still soaked in Dark Angel’s blood torn apart a few feet behind it. As much as he understood his mount and shared its will to advance and slaughter the treacherous sons of the Lion, Uffe Giantsbane knew there was nothing else to be gained from that battle. He had arrived too late.
Having eliminated all members of old Hakon’s garrison, the Dark Angles were busy entrenching themselves consolidating the tactical advantage. No, there would be no glory on this day, only further lost lives and Uffe wasn’t ready to sacrifice his brethren as pawns in some silly game.
“Let the Dark Angels celebrate their victory… we shall live to fight another day and with wrath and great blooshed we will exact our revenge” divined the Wolf Lord as he retreated with what was left of his forces.
And that’s it for today folks. Hope to see you around here soon.
*EDIT – Some people have messaged me asking about the gaming mat featured on the battle report. It is the limited/signature edition “Forges of Mars” gaming mat from Gamemat.eu. I have already reviewd their mats here and this battle report only serves to showcase their incredible quality once more.
