Recently I went to visit SorcererDave again, and along with The Claw, we played a crazy three way Stompa battle! Kaptin Badrukk's bi-annual Strompathon, Stompamania, Stomptacular or competition to determine the stompiest! The rules were simple... kind of. It was last Stompa standing!
Each Stompa had a crew of a Big Mek and some of his buddies, who could fix the Stompa. If it was destroyed, but didn't explode, it could be fixed up to D6 wounds on a 4+.
The crowd were made up of the rest of a 1750 point force each, and they would interfere in the battle if things were going badly. Starting from the second turn we rolled for our 'reserves' in the audience. The roll depended on the current damage bracket of the Stompa, so at full health it was a 6+ for a unit, while in the bottom bracket it was a 3+.
There was some other stuff as well. Random turn order was a thing, so at the start of each round we rolled off to see who would go first and second. There was also some mortal wounds coming out from Badrukk and his boyz.
So anyway, here's the game:
As you can probably guess, it was a lot of fun to play. We definitely made a lot of mistakes along the way, but it was one hell of a mad Orky ride, somewhat like Apocalypse scale Gorkamorka. Definitely not your average game of 40k! Hope you enjoy watching it at least partially as much as we enjoyed playing it.
