Photos from Flight of Truth (Istvann III Phase 2 Legendary Battle)

You shall not pass!

You shall not pass!

Here’s the second of four legendary battles which we played during our Istvann III campaign (however, I don’t have photos of the last one).

The second battle is “Flight of Truth”, with the loyalists (played by Rudi’s guardsmen) attempting to get one of three “voices of truth” to the shuttle and escape. It’s a 1000pt game on a 4×4 foot battlefield, with infantry only. The brave loyalist Imperial Army are faced by my own bi-polar Alpha Legion Terminators (who cunningly painted their armour so they don’t match any space marine legion, adding to the confusion – they ended up playing on both sides during the campaign).

In the end, it was a very close battle. One of the voices nearly made it to the shuttle, and the escorting squad just had to kill one terminator in close combat to break free and consolidate to the shuttle – but he lived and prevented the voice from running away.

As you can see from the photos, it was a total bloodbath – by the end, I had three terminators (including my Praetor) left, and Rudi had two squads. We played on to the bitter end for laughs, and one terminator and the Praetor stood triumphant as two surviving guardsman fled.
