Last Saturday we had another megabattle of Warhammer 40k.
I would be fielding my Death Korps of Krieg Assault Brigade alongside Blood Angels and Sisters of Battle. We would be facing two Imperial Guard armies with an Ork mercenary force in support.
Each player had an 2000pts force which means 6000pts on each side.
Three objectives were placed in the centre of the table and one points were given to controlling side each players turn meaning that if you hold the objective in both your turn and in the enemy turn you got two points.

By now it was late and both the enemy guards players had taken a beating. We called it a day, the end result stopped at like 16-12 or something. As I failed (yet again) to capture the Forlorn Hope objective two of those points were given because of that. I should really stop using that option because I have by now managed to capture it an just handing free points to the enemy...
It turned out to be a interesting battle with different tactics for each side. The enemy more or less divided the table into three sectors with one player trying to get the objective in front of them. On our side we instead spread out the Sisters of Battle and the Death Korps over the whole table with the Blood Angels dropping down all over the place. I felt we had better cooperation and could help each other out when that was needed.
We rather early into the game felt the Ork force in the centre would be hard to crack with all that terrain blocking our fire and we started to allocate forces from the centre to the flanks to instead have greater forces there.
Trading one objectives for two and I think that it really paid of in the end.
Thanks to all players involved.
