View Full Version : Aos Vampire Counts vs Warriors of Chaos

26-07-2015, 00:20
Played today against my mate,tried to remember and take pics but so much happens it's hard to do :)
Everything is vanilla AoS,we don't play any restrictions or quota's or anything.We do measure everything from bases tho.

I won roll off and chose the right hand side and began deploying which went like this:

20 grave guard 2-handers / khorne daemon prince
krell / 29 tzeentch warriors
3 vargiests / battle standard
6 black knights / tzeentch daemon prince
corpse cart / 6 khorne knights
6 black knights / khorne lord of juggernaut
vampire lord / khorne lord on daemonic mount
5 bloodknights / tzeentch scorceror lord on steed
vlad von carstien / nurgle daemon prince
vamp on zombie dragon / 5 marauder horsemen
20 grave guard(I stop) / giant
khorne chaos lord
5 khorne chosen
5 blightkings
15 nurgle chosen
nurgle lord

I'm deffo up against it and in hindsight shouldn't have deployed the last 20grave guard and stuck to a character or monster to keep the numerical advantage he was going to have as low as possible.
I chose to go 1st in the hope I could raise some stuff to slow him down.

I raised 6 black knights and 5 grave guard and fialed to raise 3 vargiests.Moved my dragon up my left flank as that was easy pickings(or so I thought) moved the grave guard units into woods for max armour save and moved the black knights on my right flank into the garden of some poor souls house :) My blood knights stayed put.Only chargers were my raised black knights which failed so turn over.
My buddy moved his right flank up to meet me and charge later

Moved his centre up

and moved his blightkings and nurgle lord into some other poor souls back garden

He charges my left flank.My dragon takes a wound then only does 4 back in total...pffft useless thing.he only kills one raised black knight with his 2 khorne dudes.I kill 2 marauders with the black knights behind my dragon.

only his khorne daemon prince makes it into the graveguard and kills 9!He suffers 5 wounds from the remaining grave guard in return.

I loose 3 more grave guard to battleshock and turn over.
I lose roll off for next turn and brace myself for some pain.
he casts various stuff in the hero phase which I can't remember :)He retreats his chaos knights to the saftey of the wood and retreats his marauders also.Moves up his khorne chosen and lord and also the giant.

he ominously closes in on my centre ready to unleash the charge.

He charges my grave guard with his khorne chosen and kills 3 and his lord charges my vampire lord and kills him but his giant fails..sweet.

In the middle and his nurgle chosen charge the grave guard in combat with the daemon prince wiping them out but not before they took out the khorne daemon prince.Krell failed to hit :( The tzeentch daemon prince charged the corpse cart and killed it,vlad piled in and caused a single wound.(i'm slowing realising the dice are currnetly deserting me).
Tough turn for me that but I'm still very much in this.Vlad uses his general ablity on krell and mystic shields him,he's on a +1 now which he'll need to survive the chosen.My vampire on dragon casts mystic shield on my grave guard locked in combat with the khorne chosen.
I sweeo round the back of the watchtower with my blood knights and black knights ir preparation of a nice juicy charge.

over on the left I position my dragon to charge the 2 khorne lords,my vargiests to charge the giant and the black knights to get rid of the marauders.

before he charges,my dragon melts 2 knights with his breath which opens a nice gap for him to charge the knights and the 2 khorne heros.The dragon charges and kills the last knights but has to use all his attacks on them ######,the black knights charge the marauders and wipe them out.I changed my mind with the vargiests and charged the khorne chosen before they could wipe out the grave guard but truly horrendous dice again meant I lost 8 grave guard and 2 vargiests and managed to leave the chosen with 1 left :(
In the centre my dice woes continue and my blood knights and black knights roll crap and only my blood knights can make it with their min 6" but it's against the chaos knights and not the chosen! They have a shocker and kill 1 knight,super krell causes 1 measerly wound which atleast takes one out with his ability and takes 2 wounds in return from a ###### load of chosen attacks.
Not a good turn for me.
I win roll off and use vlads ability on krell again but my mate unbinds my mystic shield attempt on him.My dragon vamp raises 3 vargiests in centre.I have no movement bar inching some models a bit closer for chargers. My black knights again roll a ###### charge and their min 6" just manages to get one into the chosen

On the left I charge my other black nights into the khorne dude on juggernaut and the newly raised vargiests into the giant.My dragon fails miserably again and I inflict 2 wounds on the khorne lord on daemonic mount,the black knights do a bit better getting 3 on the jugger lord and the vargiests have a mare and only get 6 wounds on the giant.My dragon takes a whopping 9 wounds from the 2 khorne dudes......hmmmmm.I finish off the last chosen and inflict a couple of wounds on the chaos lord.

In the centre and krell causes 1 wound again,ability kills one.Vlad,locked in combat with the tzeentch daemon price rolls poor and does 1 wound.Blood knights do ok this round but loose 2 dudes,the black knights kill 2 chosen.
My turn over and my mate tries to arcane bolt vlad but vlad survives 2 bolts.The blightkings and nurgle lord run from their postion to join the centre fight.His big tzeentch unit moves up rdy to charge and his nurgle daemon prince fly over to bolster his right flank.The chaos lord retreats from the grave guard fight.

My phone battery died at this point and after going a charging my phone I only realised after the game I forgot to take anymore pics..sorry.
In the combat phase my dragon again failed,causing only wound on the daemonic mount lord,my vargiests failed to kill the giant and the giant and nurgle dp killed them.Krell again only killed 1 chosen before falling to them while vlad held his own against the tzeentch daemon prince.My blood knights finally killed the chaos knights and my black knights killed a couple more nurgle chosen.
Turn over,
My mate wins roll and charges the giant and nurgle daemon prince into my grave guard,his tzeentch warriors charge vlad and my black knights while his nurgle lord and blightkings charge the remaining blood knights.
The grave guard get wiped out but not before taking the giant down,my dragon falls and he couldn't even kill one of the 2 khorne dudes he was in with all game....so dissapointed as he should have eaten them for breakie.Vlad dies and reappears to attack and kill the chaos lord,I loose my black knights to blightkings,chosen and tzeetch warrior attacks but my blood knights stay strong taking more nurgle chosen down.Nothing happen in battleshock.
My turn and all I got left is vlad,2 blood knights and 6 black knights.Vlad charges the tzeentch daemon prince and takes him out before falling to the horde of tzeentch warriors eager for revenge.The khorne lords take out the black knights and my blood knights finally fall to the blightkings.

Wow it was an amazing game and had I not had the worst dice I've had in months I could have easily had that.The left flank should have been done and dusted by the end of turn 2 and sweeping into his centre to take out the wizards and heros that he had in droves.Nevermind,onto the next game :)

can you not post images direct on this part of forum?

Go here to see better one with pics on page...Tomb King forum

Yes you can post pictures directly. Use the upload button, not sure which one that is at the moment though, I'm on my phone. Good looking battle, could perhaps use a couple more closeups on good looking models :)
