STAND ALONE 30K BATTLE REPORT: Death Guard vs Emperor's Children

Welcome to our Legion vs Legion Stand alone battle report. For those of you who have not seen our Battle reports before; we have a distinct style of reporting we haven't seen anywhere else. We favour the Comic strip style battle report, with comments descriptions and lots of explosions. 

The Battle Bunnies Blog has been around since 2011 and we jumped on the Horus Heresy Bandwagon at day 1. We are a closed gaming group now (though we love sharing other collectors' Legion armies) and specialise in 30k. 

We have a few rules to our battles
1) Have fun
2) Must be fully painted to game
3) Your list must be fluffy (also the reason we are Bunnies). 
4) No dice in pictures etc.

  1. Great batrep! I'm surprised by the combat between Mortarion and Fulgrim!

    1. Yeah. Fulgrim rolled a lot of 1 and 2s on the first two combat turns. On a best out of three to the death Fulgrim wins hands down, but there were always close moments.

  2. Awesome battle report. Looks so good on your completed cityscape!

    1. Cheers Dave. Was one of the best battles I have ever had too.

  3. Beautiful board and brilliant report....... What are you usi g for amoke.. Are those little leds inside?

    1. Here you go mate:

      Good luck and thanks for the nice comments :)

  4. I love reading your Battle Reports, even more so when it's an EC victory :)

    1. Cheers mate. We are planning on doing millions more. We are building to an invasion of a whole Sector called The Karrus Sector. Ferrus Manus will be leading Mortarion, Angron (new to his Legion), Fulgrim (his no 2) and Lorgar.
      They will be meeting at Winskrieg before the invasion begins. It will be epic.

  6. I love your Batreps. Had a great laugh at " Oh Throne, Mortarion is looking right at me".

    Awesome, love the irony.

    1. Cheers mate. Really appreciate it. You wait til we hit the Great Crusade ones!

    2. Also had to delete "Surprise Cockbags!!!" A few times after Fulgrim ran out of the building.

  7. Really liked the way it was presented and the humour - such a good read!

    1. Hopefully we will get lots more done in 2015. Thanks for your message :)

  8. You r not playing 30k looks like 40k no troops and s primarch on the table ??? Not very realistic looks like cheese to me
