New army defeat inevitable. Having raised an evil Drukhari force I was keen to see it action Facing a Tyranid horde my plan was to stay mobile as all vehicles can leave combat and shoot and as they open topped all the infantry on board can shoot as well. First turn went well I killed 2 Carnifexes and 10 aunts at distance. Surely I was far enough away to avoid a first turn charge?
Alas Hive fleet Kraken has some tricksy moves and can move run charge In addition a Trygon with gene stealers in tow arrived within 9 ins of left flank. The Trygon charged and destroyed one of my raiders.
The rest of the games involved me trying to manoeuvre and shoot the Tyranid hordes.I destroyed the Trygon and two the gene stealer groups but at the cost of most of my vehicles and being pinned backed I was far behind on victory points. The large numbers of Nids made it difficult to target his leader Broodlords his large group of Zoanthropes in the back field who took down my Razorwing fighter
Leesons learnt I should covered my flanks with units to print the Trygon strike and thrown out the Reaver bikes to block the alpha strike charges.
also this hive fleet can leave combat and charge which makes them a handful.
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
2018 Asian lists (Early and Late) have now been uploaded to the site. Including the new ‘Mandate of Heaven’ set of early lists.
So excited my pictures are going vertical since last Mac upgrade
Last 40 k game expected my Eldar to shred the Nurgle daemons at distance especially my new Fire Prism. Alas with -1 to hit and and a 5+ Daemon save I barely removed the first layers of mucus from the beasts. Perhaps the Elder redeployment stratagem to concentrate my fire.
Next time Happy New Year from all the elves on Biel Tan
Good evening everybody, I hope you’ve managed to tackle Christmas and New Year celebrations by the time you see this. As per the AGM, with regards the first 1 day game ive spoken to Carol and “booked” either the 10th or 11th February so what I need to know is have you got a preference for either the Saturday or Sunday? We will have the Tuesday room so enough room for everybody. Please let me know as soon as possible so I can let Carol know.
