Crusade campaign wrapped by 100-0 win over death korps. Scenario was perfect for me and he conveniently moved his 3 hero together and trusted demolition vehicle to kill 8 praetorians with 6+++. After rp rolled 1 dead, 1 wounded.

Praetorians shot 1, killed 1 and wounded 1(rolling 6/12 1's didn't heip. Vs other 7/16 were 1's...) but skorpek lord took out his othbr demolition vehicle that blew last officer quaranteeing win and as he didn't kill my lord(who with t6, w6, 4++, living metal heals 2, -1 dam per attack and once per game 2+ resurrect is near invincible) so 100-0.

As it is all i needed was keep lord alive and i win by default by painting...

He did bring all that, But he gave up board control and I ended up winning 71-59, due to just clogging the board and keeping him back.

The primaris super heavy wasn't all that good before new ia. Not sure did that change if he was even using that yet

He was using it before, and is using the new rules. It did get a big boost though in the new rules. Did a number on my army, especially with Iron Hands buffs on it. It is expensive though, and I mostly just ignored it and let it do damage and focused on the mission. It's got like 30 wounds with T8 and a few void shields, which are pretty annoying to deal with lol, and he had a techmarine babysitting it.

Cost is integral part of is model good. You can have t20 w60 2++ and it's irrelevant if you cost too much so you lose games.

Impressive stat's don't win you games. Being point efficient does.

Necrons vs wolves. Not crusade but one of the missions from there as opponent prefers simpler scenarios without secondaries.

Silver tide was pretty nasty vs opponents mild wolf army. Reapers dropped units steadily and charges halted by overwatch. Cavalry and wolfen met quick demise heiped by attrocious dice rolling.

Flver was tough to crack due to long fang taking out my 2 doom scythes asap leaving at to lone heary destrover but wasn't doing much dent to the tide either.

Ogor vs pretty much optimized Teclis list. Was going to be rough game though got super good start with ironblaster sniping calthallar. Alas he got double turn which caused just too much havoc among my army to survive.

Necron vs orks, 1k, crusade scenario as it's simple and this was basically first real game.

Killing wise orks got floored with just unit of warriors and overlord dead but orks managed to drag necrons down that i won by narrowest of margins 25-20. Mvp went to ork warboss that soaked charge of lychguard and overlord and when finally did die killed overlord preventing overlord using of veil of darkness that would have given in essence some 30 or so more vp's.

Plenty of lessons learned(like he does get ddd extra shots when bad moon reroll results in 6) and overall solid grasp of rules he had.

Stormcast & seraphon vs blades of khorne & slaves to darkness coalition game. 1k each. 21-21 tie(and guess who decided against secondaries. "it wouldn't matter anyway").

My stormcast were underperforming due to own mistakes(not using reserve rules well for one) and dice rolling(cavalry missnd with 2/3 attacks constantly hitting on 3+). But khorne was even more side watcher. He did stuff on his 1st turn with 2 bloodthirsters(3rd died on our 1st) and on last with summoned 'thirster and that's about it. My result was largely chasing 10 strong cultist units trying to get to our objective.

Castles in the Sky is an alt-history game of flying battleships. Here we see the French heavy Cruiser taking on a British Battle Cruiser off the coast of North Africa in the Med circa 1909 or so?

A friend and I right before the pandemic with our first game of Chain of Command, a killer WW II rule set by Two Fat Lardies out of the UK. I've played since then, but wanted to post this.

Crusade game. Imperial Guard vs Death Guard supply drop mission. a 60/20 victory for the IG as DG struggles to hold objectives with just 4 units on the field. Especially if the IG chews through one per turn.

It's 500 pts. We cannot use all the toys. Plus DG decided to hug each other rather than go into the forested area to the left.

I think H.B.M.C. meant terrain empty. And I agree. The table has huge No-Man's-Land to the left and right. Technically even the huge building in the center probably didn't offer much. It's no wonder the Death Guard struggled as they are a slow, melee-focus army. That table basically funneled them to the center which would be even slower (and still offer little protection) or forced them to trudge across killing fields. Lambs to the slaughter comes to mind seeing the Guard artillery and gunlines ready to mow them down when they tried. 8th/9th edition are killy enough that even as tough as Death Guard are they aren't going to weather footslogging out the open like that. Going into the woods would have only made things worst of the DG as had a huge deficit of guns particularly ones that can shot at that range.

That doesn't look like an Imperial Guard win over Death Guard. It looks like an Imperial Guard+Terrain vs. Death Guard handicap match where IG probably should win pretty handily. Which is fine if both players want that kind of thing or the DG player is looking for a challenge.

I would strongly suggest watching this video on setting up terrain. It's pretty long but very good information on 9th edition terrain considerations.

New year, first game. With new army to boot. Squig heavy gloomspite gits vs khorne.

Got double turn on 2nd round which was rather cripling as i got 5/6 objectives and his forces were penned in over last. While it was tough nut(halving charge aura halted my general on mangler squigs...). With priority maintained on round 3 I was minimum of 14-4 ahead and with 3 turns to score he just ain't getting through my lines fast enough. It's not like my army was spent!

He deployed somewhat off(rare mistake) giving me chance to capitalize the double turn to max. It wasn't casualties as such. Just casualties at the right place at the right time.

Spoiler:


Played a quick Heresy game. Brought some Custodes, let the other guy use everything he had - wasn't expecting to win, as the points difference was 1,5k vs 1,2k. BUT, through sheer luck and his bad rolls, I still had 3 Aquilons, Galatus on 1hp, Shield Captain and 1 Sentinel left
