It has been many, many years, since I got down on the floor to play toy soldiers. The game involved Airfix toy soldiers and marbles, as I recall. Yesterday my regular opponent Sean, and I, played out an Apocylypse game with super-heavy tanks.
Sean's loyalists were trying to run armoured fist units through a smashed up hab complex on Vrak. The heretical Cardinal's men (me) were trying to blunt the assault. We finally settled on a draw. I immobilised a Baneblade and shot up four Chimeras stopping the attack but I lost a Leman Russ and had a Malcador very heavily damaged (almost certainly a combat loss as it would never get back home).
The game plays quite differently at this scale. Lascannons are often out of range. A Shadowsword needs to hang well back out of lascannon range.
Great fun. Next time Sean vows to field his titan.
