Finally got a game going

 A mate and I finally managed to get a small 40K skirmish battle going. Every time we learn the rules so much time passes, the rules update and we forget what we decided the last time. Hopefully we can change that going forward.

The approaching Ork horde with supporting Killa Kan

The Ultramarine Patrol consisting of a tactical squad led by a sergeant and supported by a scout section and a Dreadnought 

The horde charges

The tactical squad splits up with half the squad holding the center objective

The battle for the objective in full force

The Killa Kan and the Dreadnought engage

In the ensuing clash they sustain three hits apiece

The command squad holding the Orks at bay

The Scouts fall back to a suitable position and pick the Orks off from distance using the snipers and Missile launcher on the left flank

The other half of the tactical squad form the right pincer and engage from that flank

Flanking on the right gives the Ultramarines a nice firing position on the horde

Ultimately the Ultramarine center got overrun and the Command team got wiped out, giving what was left of the horde the objective to take. Depending on time the spacemarines would probably re-taken the objective especially as the Dreadnought was gaining the upper hand on the Killa Kan.. In this skirmish the Orks had the objective so I was happy to give them the battle especially since my command team was also wiped out.

No man's land - Matthew vs Fauzi 28mm Bolt Action

The mission is 'No man's land'. Mathews opponent chose ends,
so Matthew worked to defend this factory  with four squads
of infantry, a mortar, MMG, a Marder and Puma.
The Soviet sniper opened the game with a deadly shot that took out
Matthew's observer. The mortar did fire a few shells later in the
game once able to spot for themselves.
The leading German infantry soon took up positions in the factory.
A squad moves in to gain firing arcs at the advancing Soviets.
 The German Commanding Officer, a first lieutenant, commanded
from the factories loading zone. His second Lieutenant
 was in reserve with 50% of the troops.
 Reserves make their way through the woods to cover the flanks of the squads holding the factory.
 The Marder became the hero of the battle, successfully knocking out both Soviet T34's.
 BANG! Target destroyed.
 And again!
 Burning Soviet armour.
 Soviet engineers manage to clear one of the German squads from
the factory with a devastating blast from a flame thrower.
 However, it was too little too late, as the Matthew took out  the Soviet BA10 armored car,
leaving the Soviet infantry with no real support and half their number destroyed.
A GERMAN VICTORY! Matthew is ecstatic!
