After six months of preparations, having painted 60000 points by 20 players from 4 countries the outcome of the biggest grudge game between Imperial Fists and Iron Warriors is decided! Victory for Imperial Fists!

Primarch-Progenitor, to your glory and the glory of him on earth! 

Imperium victor! 

Imperium victor!

Imperium victor!

At the beginning massive thanks for everyone involved! Iron Warriors side: Andrew for the whole idea and keeping disorganised traitors together bringing them to Nottingham! Loyalists for hard work with painting minis, sharing tips, pictures and keeping us entertained during hard work hobby evenings! During this 6 months we have seen players committing to the event and leaving us (sometimes without a word, your names are remembered, your presence for the next edition banned) and Iron Warriors had major crisis few weeks before game players disappearing. At the end we had few people short and played around 25k per side. And we had The Titan!

I have started my army from the scratch basically. Having few hundred points in FW legionarries, 2 Medusas and Predator plus 3 heavy bolter rapiers. First time that we posted our advert about the event was around November. Easy to count that having 5 months to paint whole 3000 pts army will not be easy. This place I must say big thank you to my girlfriend, without you I wouldn’t be able to finish this project at all! ❤

Time for pictures!

Imperial Fists and the Titan

You should see Iron Warriors faces when they saw this Titan! Priceless! After all…we wouldn`t be Imperial Fists if we hadn`t asked for some help!

Full scale of the trap but…due to my unexpected success with Vindicator bombardment, Siege Master phosphex bomb and melta Vet squad shots we couldn`t push enough models into the attack zone. Dead terminators from the Perturabo Retinue left big gap.

Dorn joins the fight!

Game ended with Imperial Fists victory, Perturabo left only with 2 wounds left. Unfortunately for us, we had to finish turn 4 due to lack of time!

We will fight this game again next year, this time with some good experience, few changes and better planing. I must say it was the best hobby experience I had since WFB tournament 15 years ago 😉 Again massive thanks to all guys that came and played with us, hope to see you soon!

If you wish to join us next year please make sure you follow my fanpage! Details soon!

  1. Nice to see the sons of dorn need a warlord titan and several Knights several Knights to win! Shows the weakness of those pampered favourites!

    • That is not weakness, that is the might of the Imperium. But as the traitor you will not understand it.
