Battle for Xilos

Beyond the Gates of Antares

Battle for Xilos - Episode 1

Conquest Force - 2,000 POINTS
Algoryn
muggins
VS Concord
Concord Conglomerate

Many different forces met on the field to engage in the opening salvos of the Xilos campaign. Algoryn, Ghar, Concord, Isorians, and Boromites all exchanged fire, but in the end, the result was a tactical draw.

The Concord had to push the relic up the middle of the board, while the Algoryn, Boromites, Ghar, and Isorians all tried to stop them. The Concord leveraged their drones quite a bit to put a ton of high SV fire on the Ghar and Isorians. The Boromites hung back a bit to try to stop them, and their matriarch “Hillary” eventually charged into the fray herself to stop the relic from moving!

The Isorian NuHu “Jian-Long” entered the field near the Concord convoy but fell to massed fire from drones and plasma. Next time…

We had seven brand new players but had a good time. Everyone learned quite a bit and went away with a huge amount of enthusiasm for painting more models!

    Good report, Nice Piccys, Nice Paintjobs, Great field of battle 🙂
    Only other thing to say is maybe drybrush the pin markers with some white paint or something like http://xiloswarconsole-3348.kxcdn.com/wp-content/uploads/formidable/Failed-Break-1106×622.jpg it just makes the numbers stand out a bit for the picys. Also in game helps you see them a bit clearer.

    Army lists most impressive (along with the rest)

  • Malach Bur says:

    Multi battle great idea!

  • muggins says:

    Yeah it was 2000 pts because there were 2000 pts total (actually more).

  • Tvayumat says:

    Looks like absolute chaos.

    It helps us to jot down the major events of each turn to give a more coherent idea of how the battle flowed, but newbie games are always chaotic!

    Have a commendation just for taking this many armies to the field!

    Nice pics, one small point, you’ve listed this as 2000 points when all your army lists are 500

    Nice pictures! Looks like it was a lot of fun.

    Thanks! I get mine at pet stores when they’re on clearance. The concord drones seemed to do the best – the Ghar really didn’t stand much of a chance. However, this was kind of a weird learning game throwdown with 7 players and a ton of factions – so hard to draw a conclusion.

    Loving the terrain. I hope to snap up some plastic plants on ebay.
    Which faction performed best?
