Prelude to Apocalypse

This world was tasting wrong...

It had not been like this when Grendel had first started to consume it. It had tasted much like many of the worlds that had gone before. A little dry perhaps, but nothing too different from what was to be expected.

Lately there had been a sort of... Spoiled? ...aftertaste to the prey it had consumed. Their base structure was somehow corrupted and unusable. To assimilate it seemed to lead to loss of Communion with the organisms that tried. Grendel had to spend precious resources on breaking nutrients down to base elements before they could safely be consumed.

When once more it came across prey that resisted, the prey reeked of the wrongness. Grendel awakened the barbed limbs that was lying dormant nearby and reached for the new precence. Whatever it was, it would have to be cleansed so that the world could be consumed and Grendel could return to the void.

Six thousand points from Ørnulv's Hive Fleet Grendel arrive for a day (and a night?) of bloodshed
this saturday, and I get to use (almost) all of my Word Bearers again.

The table is ready - but are we?


  1. What a great – shooting gallery… ;)

    Honestly - a great looking table Jørn! Hive Fleet Grendel would of course wish that some of the big structures where a bit more centred so at least one monster could reach your lines...

    Since I have spent the last week buying a new apartment – no mystetic spores this time….)

    Oh – and there will be: beer, rum and coke, whiskey and I will bring a sleeping bag!

    Hive Fleet Grendel will deep strike Lommedalen 11.00!

  2. What? Allow you to reach my lines?

    Seriously though... I'll try moving the ruins around a bit, and see if I can generate bigger blind spots for you to cower in.

  3. Once again Jørn; thank you for a great day/evening/morning…. Awesome battlefield and hundreds of finished models – can one ask for more a sunny Saturday…

    The points limit agreed upon (6000p) resulted in that I had to take a huge amount of expensive upgrades on my NIDS. The upgrades proved close to worthless. A Hive Tyrant at 350p dies just as easy as one costing 250p faced with 100 Lascannons….. Again I blame the the last NIDS Codex (I am perfect). Can anyone understand why the embodiment of the will of the Hive Mind dos not have Inv Save…?

    Enough rant! The NIDS army was close to broken after turn 3, and we decided that the most lightly outcome was a SM 4 – NIDS 2 win. A good plan well executed Jørn!

    The Hive Mind regenerates, confident, that with less upgrades and more biomass they will grind down any army – eventually ;) Next time – 6500p!
