So these past 2 weeks were pretty good for my Tau Empire! I made some good progress on the pathfinders unit and 2 of their drones and I managed to finish my Ethereal on Hover Drone for the painting competition in our local GW store. And I also got my feet wet with my first ever 40k game!
So last weekend it was that time of the year again to go to the annual Eurobash again with my mate Ronald and his brother Harold. So we loaded up the car and were off to St. Niklaas (Belgium) on Friday the 29th of April. Time to play lots of games and drink loads of beer while enjoying each others company. We (the Dutch delegate) played a game of Munchkin while we waited on ze Zgermans and Brexitters.
Whilst von Korden matches his wits against the sinister Ghorst, Volkmar marches further into the Vale of Darkness in an open challenge to Mannfred – meet them in battle, or die like a dog in the shadows. Soon, the living dead rise up against the tresspassers, but the Vampire’s minions are swiftly despatched by the forces of the Grand Theogonist’s faith.
Having forced the Necromancer Ghorst to abandon his stranglehold upon Konigstein, the Witch Hunter von Korden and his faithful soldiers are reinforced by Volkmar’s crusade as a running battle unfolds upon the open road. With the heroes united victory is soon ensured, and the Empire crusade marches stronger than ever. However, matters come to a head outside Swartzhafen, where the Grand Theogonist and Mannfred von Carstein meet upon the field of battle for the first time.

Now I haven’t taken the time to make notes and/or pictures (as I normally do for my battles) and to make a report in Battlechronicler which I used to do also, but I did want to give a few highlights from the battle. And this is an 8th Edition battle which I also won’t do anymore with my Seraphon. But just to be complete and have all my Battlereports in one place I thought I should share (of course with a date stamp on this post from when it occurred)
