VS Concord
S.Kerman

As a fragment of the Concord fleet managed to break through the Ghar lines and drop troops onto Xilos, there was only one course of action for the Ghar Commander Grog, to pursue them to the planet. It was his own negligence after all that had allowed the Concord scum to briefly break through the lines. Commander Grog was all too well aware of the consequences of failing to fulfil his orders given to him by High Commander Karg.

Grog immediately ordered a small strike force led by himself to drop alongside the Concord forces that were due to make planetfall. Upon arrival Grog was able to surprise attack a Concord Attack Drone unit from behind and cause its systems to malfunction before the imtel were aware of the new Ghar threat. Meanwhile a fellow squad of walkers had begun exchanging fire with the Concord.

As Grog made his way towards the Concord and fellow Ghar, the Concord scum had begun to entrench themselves in the ruins and Ghar Battlesuits began to malfunction. By the time Grog had charged a Concord C3 Strike team, his fellow squad was in ruins and one of his battle brothers had also fallen. Cursed humans. The hand to hand exchange resulted in the loss of another battle brother, and the destruction of a C3 squad. Of the remaining squads, one was constantly on its knees struggling to comprehend that Grog himself was still alive. The Imtel had clearly not anticipated that Grogs own battlesuit would still be intact. Further still Grog had passed every resistance test, break test and command test the remaining C3 squads could put on him, how was this even possible? Well Grog didn’t care.

The Concord were falling apart, Grogs own firepower was relentless and before long the whole Concord expedition fell to Grogs hands. Meanwhile, the Outcasts and their pitiful disruptor cannon had succeeded in running into the bushes, well done guys.

    He may just get that Crawler, but he’ll have to earn it first, and his armour will need repairs 🙂

  • A.Leah92 says:

    Thanks, i’ve uploaded what pictures I took, i’m afraid we were somewhat light on terrain for this game and I was using a poor phone camera. Things can only get better though, atleast I got photos this time around.

  • Tvayumat says:

    Love the narrative format, but oh man I’d *really* love some pictures.

    Grog sounds particularly ballsy for a Ghar commander… or maybe just terrified of winding up an outcast?

    I look forward to more batreps.
