The Battle for Ork's Drift - One of the first Apocalypse 40k

Один из первых апоков, 2-ая редакция, 1997 год, перед выходом нового кодекса Орков. Прообразом послужила реальная битва - Сражение у Роркс-Дрифт. Об этой битве можно было прочесть в WD218 UK. Тут коло 300к Преторианской имперской гвардии ака британцев и Орков ака зулусы.За 11 лет до первых правил. Это не было полноценной игрокй, скорее постановкой, но все же.



Преторианские полки были сделаны для диорамы и были доступны в продаже во время Дня игры. Они были настолько популярны, что их потом еще довыпускали.

Орков и гвардейцев были отправлены во все магазины ГВ по всей Англии, чтобы их покрасили там, и потом их отправили обратно для диорамы. Многая техника, например, Гаргант или бенеблейд, были специально сделаны. 
В журнале WD222 UK был опубликован батл репорт, это была 2-ая редакция, за орков играл Адриан Вуд, а за преторианцев  - Пол Сойер.
Только вышла другая игра – Горкаморка и было новых много пластиковых моделей. Орки накатывали волнами на ИГ, но в итоге имперцы победили, но только дюжина гвардейцев выжили.

One of the first Apoc, 2rd edition, before entering a new codex of Orks.
Served as a prototype real battle - Battle of Rorke's Drift. That article in WD218 is what inspired my love of both Orkz and Praetorians... 11 years before the first Apoc rule. It was not a complete player rather staging\dioram, but it is still cool.

Martin Bourne What did you want to know? I still have the white dwarf here somewhere as well as the follow up battle report that was in WD. Off the Top of my head the Battle for the big toof river display was made for the 1997 games day display(covered in WD218 UK), the preatorian regiment were made as a special just for the display board and a squad was available at games day (IIRC) the models were so popular that they were produced as a more perminent unit. The orks and guard models were sent to GW stores around the UK to be painted up and then sent back in time for the display to be set up which is why there are no bases no most of them, they were affixe straight to the board. A lot of the specialist vehicles were specifically built for the board, such as the gargant in the corner and the baneblade tank. 
White dwarf ran a battle report that was inspired by the "Big toof river" display called "last stand at glazer's creek" it used second edition rules and featured the preatorians and a scattering of civilians holding an old farmstead against wave after wave of orks controlled by Adrian Wood...i want to say Paul Sawyer controlled the guard but i'm not certain without finding the issue(WD222 UK). The orks were mostly the newly released Gorkamorka plastic models and injuries suffered by the imperial forces carried from wave to wave so the guard were slowly whittled down over the course of the game.
The guard won in the end though i think only half dozen humans made it through the battle.
