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).

Over the past month and a bit my local gaming club (the ANU Wargaming Society) has been playing the Istavann III campaign. So far, the results are mixed: Phase 1 the Traitors won handily, and Phase 2 the Loyalists won with a bit of a struggle. We’re halfway through Phase 3, where the Loyalists are currently ahead.
Some of us have been playing the Legendary Battles from the campaign, and we’ve been taking photos. Here are photos from the Phase 1 Legendary Battle, Cometh the Red Angel, with Rudi’s Imperial Army (Imperial Guard) versus Tom’s World Eaters Legion.
It was a bloodbath, but the later pictures will tell you exactly who won…
(Many thanks to Rudi and Tom for both taking photos of their game and letting me post them on my blog!)
So we managed to have our first game of Exalted this week, where our circle of new Solar Exalted have managed to drive off a pirate ship and its two(?) dragonbloods and find a mysterious island…
We have a wiki for our campaign, where we’re posting up character backgrounds and session logs and stuff – my friend Rudi is currently our scribe and is writing up our session logs quite a cool way, as if it’s a story.
So, here’s a post about my thoughts so far on Exalted and its system, as well as showing my speed-painted character too! Continue reading
