In what is becoming something of a tradition, we celebrated both the end of our local lockdwon and the release of 9th ed 40k by revisiting the classic Battle At The Farm with our DIY 1/72 minis:

Looks good, hope you had fun?

In my experience the Marines are overpowered by at least twice compared to the orks. Closest game we had was when we point balanced it to Pedro, 3 marines and a missile launcher Vs all the Orks plus a heavy bolter.

Orks won finally (just)!

I will give 9th a test drive soon as well.

Cheers Hades, was a blast! We'll have to give your version a go too :-)

The first RT game I ever played, with a cardboard cut-out farm. As I recall, the Marines pasted the Orks, only taking one casualty in the process.
