prelude to madness-batep with pics-1/09/2010
With the seattle GT coming next week my panzers are taking a powder. with last minute touch ups done and all that means they will be spending the week in the case. so this week is was all about the counts as spacce wolves ADMECH themed list.
.arjac squad upgrade(4 WG in terminator armor with frst blades and combi-melta)1 cyclone
.10 terminator WG, all with combi-melta, 9 frost blades, 1 chainfist,2 cyclone
.X2 venerable dread in pods with wolf tail/tooth extra armor, multi-melta DCCW/heavy flamer
A familiar affair, there really isn't much to say. i was fighting a re-match against the doulbe lash oblit list. we have already gone 1 win for me and 1 tie.
X2 lash sorcerors
.X4 plague marine squads of 7 with 2 melta guns each in rhinos
This game was spearhead and kuill points. he went first and killed a few terminators in the 10 man squad that started onthe table.
Then my dreads podded in, i popped a few rhinos and he focused his entire army on my dreads-13 melta shots later and a few venerable re-rolls, both dreads where shaken and one was missing it's DCCW arm.
arjac podded in the next turn and smoked 3 oblits and got love from the other oblits in return. after one failed attempt to lash(najal's 3+ staff slap says no) he killed a pod and focused on the dreads. i got one sorceror in CC and a couple more rhinos. his dice were once again failing him(well except for the krak grenades which hit 3 times nearly every CC phase). he called the game on turn 4 when it became apparent he could not win. by that point he had 2 KPs and i had 5 KPs.
A green tide
so many orks....
.X2 20 man mobs in wagons
.X2 10 man mobs in trucks
.tank bustas in looted vehicle
.ork bikers(not nobs!!!!)
.X2 scortcha trucks
.snigrot and commando sqaud
i went first, i hit both his wagons but he had a froce field, made both saves. i blew up one truck
His turn 1
he immobilises a wagon in the trees so his boyz get out and assault the dread in front of them. i kill the big mek
he tries to ram me with the other wagon, he hits the dread in the open and stunns it. the rest of his forces swing around from the right or rush forward.
arjac pods in and kills the looted vehicle, i pop the other truck, pods kill a couple boys. dread kills the wagon that stunned it
His turn 2
his bikes move up, his tank bustas and big sqaud from the blowed up wagon assault arjacs unit and takes them out. snigrot comes in and joins a boy squad assaulting the big unit of terminators. i loose several but the exchange is overwhelming in my favor. i am in terminator armor so i cannot sweep them up but both units are broken and start running off the table. his grots fix his other wagon.
logans unit moves out and takes out the 3rd boy squad about to assault them. the dread walks around the pod, flames and then assaults the warbosses unit, killing the boss. i missunderstood his wargear list and we thought he had krak grenades, but stick bombs are only frags....so he got in alot of extra attacks actually damaging the dread that was in CC from turn one with them......
His turn 3
his bikes assault and kill a pod, his tank bustas kill a pod, i win CC against the warbosses unit. they break and run he gets a scortcha in range to flame logans unit ...double 1s i loose 2 terminators
logans unit shoots/assaults his scrotcha killing it, the remaining pod shoots tank bustas and make them run, my dread now free from CC flames and assaults the bikes, i few they are nobs and am suprised to learn they are regular bikers.
His turn 4
i win combat aginst the bikers, they run and get swept, his second scrotchas flame logans squad his tank bustas shoot the last pod, before they run off the table, and kill it.
logans unit moves against the other scortcha but only manage to stun it. the one dread is still in CC while the other moves up to assists.
He remembers his wagon can move again so he rams my dread and immobilises it.
game ends at the bottom of 5.
ORKS score 4 KPs for arjacs unit and 3 pods.
ADMECH wolves score.......11 KPs
Victory for the admech force!
...although i forgot to attack with najals bird again >_<
