Battle Report (Iron Warriors vs Death Korps of Krieg)

He has no need to walk softly, for the rumbling of the engines of war at his back are an advertisement of their presence on this planet. Here, on this frozen rock, the Death Korps of Krieg march on a bastion of malice the Iron Warriors have carved for themselves out of rock, warped steel, and the scorched bones of their enemies. Here, upon this barren, desolate wasteland, those foul servants of Chaos will learn they cannot hope to withstand the might of the Emperor’s wrath, and as the cannons thunder and shells roar toward them, they will cower and run like rats out of a sinking ship.

But the Iron Warriors are not fools that would throw themselves against the solid rock of Krieg without a plan. The Gods of Chaos demand sacrifice, they demand tribute, and a reckless Lord fuelled by pride and a thirst for glory, whose primary goal is to maim, burn, and kill, is of no use to anyone. The Imperial commander’s mettle is strong, his courage holds, but his men are slow, and weak. They think themselves rock, but they are merely flesh and bone. They think themselves waves of molten lava, that they could chew through our armor, the hulls of our tanks. They are wrong.

Today, one commander will learn the error of his ways while the other’s pride strengthens. They will both, however, fail to understand the crucial lesson—in times of war, the Gods of Chaos care not for any one man or any one army.

They always win.

Greetings all and welcome to another SN Battle Report! I hope the holidays have served as a good break for all you hobbyists. Today we have a treat for you, as we see Steven using the Studio’s Iron Warriors being pitted against Shaggy and the Death Korps of Krieg. Duking it out on a snowy battlefield is thematically perfect for the Death Korps, a great decision by the SN Team.

Pardo wins the roll off, opting to choose which side of the battlefield he will deploy on. This in turn means that Shaggy will deploy and go first due to the new Chapter Approved ruling. Along with the Chapter approved came some great point reductions for many armies, allowing generals to field even more units, which can work in their favour. Additionally, we see some new missions added in the Chapter Approved, with the team deciding that the mission being played out will be Eternal War.
