40k Zone Mortalis – Eldar vs. Salamanders

March 5, 2016 Posted by cranky

Had a great game day this Saturday with the gaming crew and we got a game of Zone Mortalis in with 40k armies. We didn’t use the full ZM rules as we’re still getting our collective memories back with the 40k rule set. But we did do 2 40k armies provided by my friend John, using Eldar vs. Salamanders Space Marines. I played the Eldar (first time ever playing Eldar) and John fielded his trusty Marines. Craig provided the amazing custom Zone Mortalis boards and moral support (mostly for John as you’ll see in the bat rep later on. Great time was had and I definitely felt the power of the Eldar coursing through my veins as we played this game! Check out the army lists and some pictures of the battle as it unfolded as the Salamanders attempt to recover as many relics as they can before the crafty Eldar make off with their ancient and forbidden xeno-tech!

Chaos Nurgle Lord Craxus the Foul and the brutal Ork Warlord Garm Skullcrusha have a stand-off and epic confrontation in the middle for the push towards the heart of Thraxan capitol. The orks, seeing a string of victories pile up and momentum for a Waagh of their own, are beginning to interfere with the plans laid out by the Forces of Ruin. Lord Craxus begins to become concerned that the Ork forces are pushing too fast into the loyalist lines, creating an over-extension threat towards the campaign as well as threatening the Sleeping Daemon’s successful rite of wakening. The two warlords agree to parlay in the middle of the campaign to sort out their differences and realign the Orks to the larger goals of the campaign.
