Now after Col Ackland given me a link to a battle that happened during the Zulu Wars, and me coming across something that I printed some time ago. I think I have come up with a good bit of fluff for what could be a fantastic battle. What I will do is write below exactly how it's written, let you guy's have read and let me know what you think. Plus when I get a bit of time I can tweak the Regiments involved so that it works for us. So here it is:
When the 24th and 13th were deployed in the reconquest of Montaur VII, the Black Guard was sent in to retake Glazer's Creek; the site of a small victory in the final battle of Montar. The 13th mounted a full assault on the small Ork garrison. Disorganised and leaderless, the Orks stood no chance against the 13th's righteous fury.
The Black Guard soon set up a firebase and prepared for a counter-attack. While the main force lead by the 24th sack the central Ork village, the 13th prepared to be the anvil to crush the Orks upon. Driven towards the creek by Imperial forces, the Orks fought a fighting retreat. Lord Sherdan allowed the Imperial Guard to drive the Orks towards the Imperial outpost by the creek. The Orks couldn't let such a sweet target escape them: more, battle, more blood, more WAAAAAGGGHHH!!! The Orks amassed in a valley that ran beside the creek, divided by a low rise.
The Orks rushed over the hill screaming in their foul Orkish tongue. The first thing to surprise them was the heavy barrage of artillery. Still they kept coming, wanting to destroy the base and all the guardsmen there. A Speed Kult led the assault on the firebase, and soon they were working their way into the creek valley. At the same time from behind, an Imperial air strike forced the rear elements of the Ork Warband onwards into the Praetorian guns. Pressed into a box, the Orks fought onto the death.
The final element of the plan came into play when the 24th Praetorian led the counter-attack on the Ork remains from behind, while the 13th held them off. As the Orks were about to reach the firebase, the 13th's armour battalion rushed forward to challenge the Ork Speed Kult, and closed the trap. The Orks were smashed between the 24th's hammer and the 13th's anvil. This would finish the Orks dominion of Montar VII. Following this victory all that was left to do was to clean up the last remains of the Ork Waaagh!. The 13th was given this mission which took a few months to accomplish.
So there you have it guy's something we could really get to work. The two regiments named here we can change to our own. The only drama being mine as it is not a regiment but a Company, but I have made reference in my history going to support the 24th. Also the we can use the Rough Rider's we have in the armoured Battalion that is mentioned above.
Give me your thoughts guy's as to what you think, and if we can all decide on this then that's one less hurdle to jump. Also guy's we really do need to decide on a date as this will help massively but I am conscious of our fellow overseas friends when it is the cheapest and easiest time to come across.
