Klingon Revenge (Attack Wing report)

Hello All,

Lat week in addition to a fun game of Age of Sigmar I got a chance for a rematch with my son from last December. We decided to play a game with the following rules
  • Old school ships: Only Star Trek VI and before are allowed.
  • The Constellation class should be allowed even though it did not show up till next Gen. It was supposed to have been the replacement for the Constitution Refit class. So a new design at the time of Star Trek VI
  • 150 points 
  • 4 ship minimum
  • Per official tournament rules (which I like Except for Borg) no single ship can cost more than 50 points 
  • Semi Pure Faction (Klingon/Romulan Alliance vs. Federation/Vulcan Alliance) only ships and upgrades from the listed faction can be used without opponent consent.
Federation Fleet

USS Hood

USS Enterprise NX-1 

USS Yorktown


The Klingon Fleet

IKS Kronos one (Flagship)

Prototype Bird of Prey 

An Old School D7 Battle cruiser 

A second Old School D7

The Original Bird of Prey
Here is the after action report

Start of Deployment The D7s move into position

Both Level 1 Captains

The Federation begin deployment

Split in a dragnet formation

Klingon/Romulan Pack Hunting tactics

Early positioning

The NX-1 swings wind for a sweep attack

The Klingons combine fire on the USS Hood

The Yorktown and Enterprise move in for support

The Klingons make a surprise turn around

The Ni 'Var swings wide

The Hood makes a fatal mistake 

And pays the price

The Game ended a turn later with the distruction of the NX-1 and the Ni'Var and leaving the Yorktown crippled unable to maneuver and her Captain disabled (Multiple critical hits.) The Klingons fared much better only losing a single D7 in the final exchange.  

Victory to the Klingon Empire... Oh yea and the Romulans too.

Age of Sigmar game 2

Hello All,

I manager to get a second game in this past weekend. This time my Empire patrol found themselves facing a nasty surprise left behind by the Evil Chaos forces the week before. A small Demon incursion. It was kill or be killed in this this battle. The end was way closer than I thought it had any right to be. 

Empire (42 Models)
General of the Empire
Warrior Priest
20 Great Swords
20 Swordsmen

Chaos Demons (34 Models)
Herald of Khorne 
10 Bloodletters
20 Plague bearers
3 Stormfiends (Skaven list)*

* I only have 2 assembled so we used a Mordor Troll for the third and made it the shock option since it had heavy armor.

Here is how it went down

"Chinese Stand off . Don't make a sound"

The Swordsmen ready for Battle

Greatswords- "Absolutely Badasses"

Plaguebearers and Bloodletters

Stormfiends- the Sharknado of AOS

New reusable marker cards really helped remind us of unit abilities.

Greatswords coming off the hill

Stormfiends vs. Swordsmen

This is not going well for the Empire

Greatswords making short work of the Plaguebearers 

Plaguebearers dead pool at the end of the first round of hand to hand

Heralds of Khorne can do what!? 

Not so good for the swordsmen

Using the new AOS movement rules to disengage and regroup.

It was only marginally effective

Last stand of the Greatswords

Only the Champion is left of the Greatswords

The Warrior Priest decides to avenge the now destroyed swordsmen!

Hammer to the Nuts!

The General must prove the Greatswords sacrifice was not in vane.

The Generals meet

Not looking good for the Warrior Priest

Fight to a stalemate!


We mucked about a bit and had fun with the rules (like allowing the Stormfiends to surround the priest and all attack. It was thematic so we went with it. The end result was real close. 
I lost 95% of my forces having only the General and Priest left and my son having the Herald of Khorne  and the three Stormfiends received 88% loses.  A minor victory for Chaos on the field and a major blow to the Empire as their most powerful warriors were slain to a man. 

I hope you enjoyed my recap. Please let me know if you did.
