Dicing with Death – Assault on Lapladia

Just before Christmas we ran an event themed around the forge world of Lapladia, owned by the maverick Magos Dominus S4nt4r. It was a fun event and awesome to get our gaming group together for some drinks and games. Here is some fluff on the event along with some pictures of the games.

The Wolves charged violently into the traitors guns, and a savage trick played out via the Perfect legion, delivering annihilation upon the Emperors Executioners.

The Raven Guard forces arrived in haste, and wrecked havoc upon the traitor lines in furious vengeance but alas, it was too late. Both sides took horrendous losses, however Dorn deemed the loss to great, and ordered his forces to fall back.
