Battle Report Orks versus Imperium
This battle comprises 2000pts of Orks mainly Kults of
Speed and two Gargants, with a Snakebite Clan and Battlefortresses versus
a mixed 2000pts Imperial force, comprising Imperial Guard tanks and infantry,
an Imperial Titan, a Space Marine Expeditionary Force and two flights
of Imperial Navy aircraft. The Orks consisting of eight detachments had
four in reserve and were defending in an entrenched position. The Imperium
with just the Marines in reserve had all their forces on the table. The
pictures were taken using my old HP Photosmart camera, so are not the
best in the world (sorry).

Gargant, a Battlefortress and two detachments of mainly Battlewagons and
Nobz, with some nice little bits such as Pulsa Rokkits, GunTrukks, Stompas,
and some Stormboyz. In reserve were a Gargant, another Battlefortress,
a Snakebite Clan detachment and a Kult of Speed.

contain Flakwagons go on special orders.

Overwatch) were pretty effective in taking out the screening Leman Russ

The Great Gargant and Reaver launch into
a protracted assault. In the next turn the Great Gargant turned all its
weaponry onto the Reaver and it was turned into a heap of molten slag

now just infantry.
