Trying to turn the tide

The final match of Doom!  This time vs Tau.  Big robot dudes.  Big shooty.  Lots of dead guys in kilts.

However, now realizing the futility of trusting in their fortifications, the Highland Guard chose the only option available.  The Final Option.


Hey, do ya wanna live forever?

Yes indeed.  The first three turns of the game, the Guard and Sisters bravely charged forward, directly into a hail of fire!

Undeterred by the screams if their fallen brothers, they surged ahead, ever closer to their hated enemy.

None even bothered to fire a shot.  It was all... "Onwards!  Give them the bayonet!!"

In reality, this action caused so much consternation among the Tau that the constant attempts to Nova- something would go haywire, causing damage to themselves.

Even the Living Saint perished with all of her Seraphim.

But not even Death itself could deter her from her final glory!!!

The dreaded master of the soulless Tau, promoting heretical beliefs across the Galaxy.  He must be purged!!!

One brave Highlander after another fell in the desperate attempt to finish off the damaged monsters.  Lady Commissar Kuranova herself challenged the cowardly leader of this horse of mutants... hiding in his armor.

Chief Medic Marley O'Sullivan was able to keep the last few survivors alive... one round of combat after another!

But alas, the wounds suffered were soon more than even his ancient powers could repair.  All would perish.  A terrible loss for the brave Highland Guard!


  1. When all else fails, play like a madman! How did your opponent react to the move? I find that some folks love that sort of thematic "damn the torpedoes" stuff, and others get annoyed that you refuse to play their game.

    1. It turned out to be very fun, since there was no point in 'hiding'. :-) We turned it into a Civil War style adventure...
