Thanks very much guys. I took part in a local Charity tournament on Saturday just past. It was a great day of gaming against some stunning armies. Didn’t get a whole lot of pics but here’s what I did take.
The first two games were against very different Space Wolf lists, I only got a couple pics of the first game
I may have been a little surprised by the speed and firepower of the Stormfangs, especially when they blew up my Siege Dread in one round of shooting. :( I made a few other mistakes such as
Charging my bikes into a unit of Wulfen leaving my Lord on an Objective.
Which then led to this
Wulfen then charged my unit of Chaos Marines
Wiping them out obviously.
I got revenge the next round though, and thanks to some really unlucky Shield saves I killed me some Wulfen
Sadly I got no pics of Game two as we were in combat turn one the way we had deployed. So was concentrating on that. The mission used the deployment map that has the 9” bubble in the centre of the table and you deploy in opposite corners. I forget what it’s called. We were both hungry for blood as I had played against this guy at the Rapid Fire Tournament a few weeks ago so it was a rematch of sorts
I managed a win on objective points in this game which was also nice.
Highlights of this game we’re Bjorn being a unit Id
marked for murder (part of the mission so worth 1vp) Bjorn and the Ven Dread destroyed one of my Rhinos before I charged Bjorn with my Knight, unfortunately it didn’t go my way and Bjorn blew up the Knight. I rolled 10” for the blast :( My Lord who had charged the Ven Dread around the corner of the Bastion from the Bjorn/Knight fight suffered 5 Mortal wounds which combined with the wound he’d taken on overwatch from the Ven Dread meant he was vaporised along with the knight. My Berserkers who were there to back up the Knight also took 4 Mortal wounds. I did manage to kill 2 Wulfen with the blast so silver lining haha.
After that massacre my Zerkers engaged a unit of Wulfen in combat and they managed to wipe the unit out, which then wiped out the Zerkers in return. This happened with both my units against both his units of Wulfen
Great fun. My Siege Dread then ran over and avenged his big brother by punching Bjorn back to the Allfather. I did also manage to kill his Thunderwolves which wiped out my Lord and Terminators in our last game so that was a moral victory for me. Like I say I won in Objectives.
The third game by sheer coincidence was against SystemSyn (a friend of mine) and his awesome Emperors Children. We’ve both been working on the Siege Dread in the build up to this tournament and we both agreed that they were just going to charge across the battlefield and punch each other. It was a great combat and really could have gone either way. I got him first though
There was a lot of great moments in this game as well and we actually remembered we were playing a mission and a few times we even made tactically sound decisions rather than just smashing each other to bits. Always a fun game and a great army to face off against. Ill leave some pics of that game here. The halls lighting isn’t great so some of these pics look very yellow/blurry
The titans clash
My Bikers holding off the Maulerfiend until the Berserkers arrive to help.
My Lord battling the Defiler (it did not go well) until the Knight arrived to finish the beast
So again I had a great day of gaming against some really nice armies. Congrats on SystemSyn for taking the win in the Best Painted army again as well. :tu:
