|Imperial Guardsmen advance during the game this week|
|Ork squad in winter wonderland - note the captured titan crewman (back at the left) they have "recovered" - no Christmas for him...|
|Space Marines from the Howling Griffons Chapter enter ruins to look for the titan crew - unfortunately my pictures of Dallas' excellent RT-era marines did not turn out well....d'oh!|
|Da Red Barun makes another strafing run on the Imperial troops - he was eventually shot down....|
Dallas, Mike F and Mike A played the Ork side, while Frederick and I rolled with the Imperial side.
|Shot of the Imperials advancing, supporting by a Robot. In the grim darkness of the far future, it still all starts with a PC running Windows 7....|
|Ork boys with missile launchers focused a lot on the Predator|
|"These ruins should provide great cover guys! Unless they have flamers...."|
|The looted Rhino leads the assault for the Orks.|
|Picture of the Imperial Command Section - these las cannon gunners brought down the Red Barun.|
|My completely perfect flank, which could never be turned....|
|Predator commander counts all the Ork missile launchers....|
|The Imperial right flank disappears in a cloud of flames and dreadnought claws....stupid skorchas...|
As always, it was absolute great fun to play Rogue Trader - and the hybrid with the current vehicle rules works really, really well. I look forward to playing Rogue Trader again soon with the group. Thanks again to Dallas for hosting, and to everyone who came out to play. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to everyone out there!
Nice report Greg - and thanks for figuring out a scenario and doing up the OOBs; that's the one thing about RT that makes me a bit mental. It was great to just roll out figures and terrain and play. I also took some pics of the game...
|Guardsmen sneak around a building.|

|Boyz about to investigate a "blip".|
|Guardsmen and Space Marine vehicles in the ruined city.|
|Boyz make off with one of the Titan crewmen.|
|Scorchas turn a Guard squad into barbeque, as Imperial Robot looks on. Too bad its programming didn't account for the masterful flank attack ;-)|
