Space Marines vs. Tharks

These venerable tomes of battle (thanks Lewis) inspired this game of Space Marines vs. Tharks, although we ended up using Warhammer 5th Edition rules with the Ogryns stat block for Tharks.

Thanks also to the scenario author, TheMachineGod. You can download Recover-The-Artifact at
Wreckage markers are placed and sides are drawn.

Tharks advance.

Space Marines enter ruins.

Searching the wreckage.


And then there was one.

Wreckage is unstable and explodes!

Tharks find the artifact!

Armour Saves abound!

Courage under fire.
The artifact is fragile and can only be carried by walking infantry back to their deployment table edge.

Close combat stalemate.

The long walk home... under fire.

  Then there were three.

So close...

Then there were two.

First time in play for the Tharks and they looked great in action. Thanks to Greg for a highly enjoyable game. Also to Lewis for the Terrain and ecouragement. The contested artifact meant a draw, however a few more rounds would have seen a complete rout of the wasteland mutants.
