40K unjustified escalation

Forward for the Emperor
Over the Christmas I manged to get in a few games of 40k in thanks to Franco organizing a mixed doubles event with the DGG and TLC. Mixed doubles means one player from each club is paired with a member from the other and they both bring 1000 point army to the table.  The event was billed as friendly event but with the DGG and TLC involved treachery and deceit is never far away. To circumvent any possible treachery I rocked in with Imperial guard, backed-up by a super heavy in the form of a Stormlord with air support from a Thunderbolt and an Inquistor thrown in for divination on the stormlord (I am still giggilng when I think of the list).

Bolt action Banzai finale -> saving flight officer ryan

Over the Christmas I got to play bolt with the Chindits vs the newly painted Japanese.
The mission was "Top Secret" with a couple of modifications.  The force can be found here.

Japanese sniper deploys in the high ground overlooking FO Ryan’s hideout.  The Chindit sniper hides in the forest opposite out of sight of his opponent. Japanese tanks goes first and rush to FO Ryan’s position, the plan is to act as a fire base for the follow up squads. Japanese sniper goes on overwatch.

Japanese tank assume covering position.
