House Liagaun vs House Coldshroud
Battlemat: Sector Imperialis by Games Workshop
Scenery: Mix of Adeptus Titanicus, Garden or Morr and Bespoke
Decided we wanted a quick game of Adeptus Titanicus so grabbed one of the printed scenery mats from Warhammer 40k Conquest and a few buildings and other scenery to play through.
Round 1 saw three units of 3 knights fielded by each side. This was a matched play game with all knights fielding the same weapons.
There was plenty of line of sight blocking terrain between the centre of the board and the deployment zone but Knight weaponry isn’t long range so the only option was to advance.
A couple of rounds later the centre of the board had become a lot more interesting. Knights were in weapon range and both players chose to tactically conceal a unit to keep them free of incoming fire.
The House Liagaun knights waited in hiding then ambushed the loyalists, it was six in six. The shooting then melee began! On the flank the other units clashed under a hail of fire before also charging one another.
Citizens of the sector looked on as might war machines laid into each other with precision fire and huge roaring chainswords bristling with adamantium teeth that chewed into ceramite plate.
First blood came on the flank as the Loyalists combined to slay one of the House Liagaun knights that had dared to stand before them in combat.
In the centre field the House Coldshroud knights began piling into melee combat.
Yet fate through cruel luck their way and blows missed their mark or were deflected by ion shields. Suddenly the tide turned and successive loyalist knights fell.
The end came as the traitors out numbered their former comrades 6:4, the loyalist commander signalled the retreat and the knights tactically retreated to call in Titan support. The traitors had established a foothold in this sector. The advance must be stopped!
