Entered the one day tournament at our local FLGS. I bought Black Templars configured for close combat in 2 Land Raises with some terminators 2 Heroes and and an anti tank Predator. Id did not go well
Lose in 2 Turns to a Newbie using Ultramarine massed plasma and R Guilliman
Mistakes were made I let him deploy in the craters so he got a better save but I had line of sight. The hellblaster plasma made short work of my armour My ruminators failed their charges with re -rolls and his rep sticking reverse tied me up in knots Conceded in 2 turns
Game 2 Adeptus Custodes
These are the Emperors elite enforcers Hi toughness 2 + save 4+ invulnerable . Began well, dented these splendid chaps with Lascannon fire . Heeded the shop owners advice to get stuck in. Unfortunately the terminators failed the charge again and I misplayed the stratagems and allowed the combat sequence to be interrupted. Lasted to the end of playing time but lost 12-5 on points
Last Game Bottom Feeders
Great match up Opponent playing Astra Militarum 2 super heavy tanks five Leman Russ and open table with no over on infantry. Over before it began really. He destroyed one of my Landraiders on turn one and severely damaged the other . I deep struck the Terminators and using the attack twice stratagem destroyed one of the super heavy tanks Hurrah ! Turn 2 rest of my vehicles destroyed and I conceded as behind on victory points. I didn’t really have a chance in this one.
No point entering with a fluffy list as all armies present were brutal multiple super heavy tanks , knights and dodgy Eldar.
I should forgotten the close combat style of Templar play and just use d multiple lascannons
At least all my stuff was painted
3 colour minimum should prevail
