Default Fluff Bragging

Take a look at what you armies have done in past battles and bragg a bit. Like my Josarian 13th has cleansed a hive world of slannesh, repulsed a tyrinid and helped defeat numerous chaos raids in their sector.

In the last campaign I played at my local hobby store my cadre ground an Imperial invasion to a halt, then drove them backwards. It ended with my cadre emptying fire into the starport where the Imperials landed in the first place. Despite all that my cadre suffered amazingly few cassualties at around 20-30% each battle compared to the other Tau and Eldar armies with a whopping 90-95%. Add to that the fact that I was the youngest participant. Do I get bragging rights? Of course.

The Marines of The Emperor's Vengeance have a long and distinguished history. To list their every glory would take years to compile.

My Warboss and his retinue standing up to a turn of shooting from 4000 combined points of ultramarines and Tau....they didn't die until the last gun was fired.

But they still died :P


Okay here's one for GW's records... and Fingolfin

Take on one side
1x Sly Marbo
2x Catachan Deathworld Snipers

And on the other
1750pts of Chaos (iron warriors w/ lots o' Tanks)

Add 2 rules... Marbo has unlimited Demo charges, and then Chaos can't take anything with a 2+ save

Then get Sly and his Snipers to wipe the floor with this chaos force in the end loosing only 1 sniper and 1 wound on Marbo!

Now that wasn't (just) a fluke, it involved 80% jungle terrain and alot (ALOT) of skill.

Now who has bragging rights? and who is also the Catachan MASTER!!!!! *:D

Back a few years I had an Iyannden army called The Host of lament.

We (at the store) ran a campaign based on the defence of Iyannden (naturally i may of had a bias lol). The initial tyrannid attack took a heavy toll on the once beautiful Crystal domes. Destroying the gardens of henroth and killing untold numbers of eldar the tyrannids consumed all till hope was nearly lost.

Then farseer Y'wren called upon the lost brothers and sisters of the eldar race and an army of vengeful spirits awoke and cleansed the domes once more. The bio constructs were pushed back into space where the newly arriving pirate prince and his fleet turned up to wipe them out.

It was a fun campaign and in truth had elements of other races in offence/defence of the craftworld but it was a good laugh. Ruleswise i think the funniest thing to happen was my farseer hold back a tyrant with gaunt back up for 4 turns before actually killing that behemoth

You guys, he means fluff, storyline, bragging. Not actual battles.

Anyway, here's mine. The Genofian regiments were able to cleanse their world of Eldar during the great crusade. Simply stated, yet I'd like to see some of your dudes do it... ^-^
