Boy and E! took 15 guardsmen each, Arch took approximately 15 Redemptionists (with a warzone heavy machine gunner that counted as a heavy stubber) with a couple of underhive low lifes to make the group up to a fun sized raider group. I took about 12 Scavvys plus a beastman with an autogun and Idolatror Jobes an old citadel model that looks quite a lot like Indianna Jones.The forces weren't exactly even but I used the rule that if a model is holding two guns he is assumed to be a gunfighter.I rather foolishly used Scavvy stats so my entire force had a BS of 2, except for the beastman and Idolatror whom I considered to be just an average gang leader (who keeps some very unsavoury companions).We used an 8'x4' table with plenty of scenery and each force deployed in a seperate corner.

E! started first and split his forces into 3 groups, one to head off the Redemptionists, one to advance on the objective and the third to keep an eye on the other Imperial Guard force despite the declared alliance.
Arch was next and split his force into two, one to grab the objective and the other to engage E!'s guardsmen.
I similarly split my forces and Boy did likewise.
Towards the latter stages of the game when close combat occurred both Scavvy's and the dress wearers started to rip through the guardsmen. The result of the game was victory for the forces of non humanity as they picked up the decoder and scarpered. All in all a fun game that we didn't bog down with too many additional rules.
