Gee, more mech Blood Angels.

His army includes:

2 Baal Preds.
2 Rhinos, 2x 10 man tactical squads with pfist, melta, missile launcher (I think).
2 5 man Vet squads w/power weaponx2, plasma x2.
1 10 man assault squad w/pfist.
10 man deathcompany led by a chaplain.

His setup:


His first turn:

Those marines in back aren't dead, they're in the Rhinos.

I move up a bit.

I stopped his rhinos, and he got out and stopped moving.

I moved up some more, and I spent several turns shooting vehicles with my stellar anti-tank capabilities.

The death company is brave...and has a normal chaplain not Lemartes.

I kill a Rhino. I think this is like turn 3. Yes, exciting! lol

He moves his Baal in a bad spot, 2 lascannons and a GKT unit can get side shots.

I kill the other Baal Predator.

I'm ready to take his moves out if he so chooses. I am about 20" from his jump pack troops.

A veteran squad comes flying out by itself. A gift?

Then a tactical squad moves into the wrecked Baal.

Charge of the Light Brigade.

Ready to take the DC on.

I punked the other Baal down to immobilized/all weapons destroyed.

Blood Angels charge #2 is getting prepped:

The guy in back is the last surviving member of the tactical squad that charged previously.

One squad of jump pack troops falls back to take the objective in the back.

I move to control my objectives and contest the center. He comes out to play.

The aftermath of the second charge of the light brigade:

I got the stormtroopers to move forward and take the central objective, giving me a 3 to 2 objective win.

GKT charging into DC who have 8 of theirs + 1 chaplain locked in combat with 3 Sisters of Battle so only 2 can attack my GKT....yeah, not good. I killed like 6 of them flat first round.

Oh and I shot most of the rest of the jump packers to death with my guns, and that lone tactical sarge when he went to contest the middle objective (that's what the stormtroopers are doing sitting there).

I have to say, though, that's a really pretty Blood Angels army, and a bit different than the usual.

He wasn't aggressive enough sadly else he'd have been able to pull off a win (I think).

The way you described the battle, it sounds like he tried to throw one unit at a time at you. Did you thank him for the parting gifts?

I play

He did it two at a time really.

No, I wasn't rude to him.

So he killed him by letting your lascannon squad stay alive?

To think that you have three focal points and each one of these was never taken into account.

thanks for the report. Nice to see the pics as well.

That is a really lovely BA army. I really like the paint job.
Again... why the corner? Geesh... It's like he thought he would get bonus damage for having built up more momentum on his charges.

They were in the corner because of the spearhead mission.

The other BA player in the other thread I forced to deploy first and I setup in refused flank (I also said that in that thread).

Almost all of my opponents wanted to go first, and I obliged them with a setup they regretted.

New to 5th edition players often do that.

Honestly, there are very few instances in which I would want to go first in 5ed. Maybe in a pure anhiliation mission, or in one where my opponents can charge me/wreck stuff no matter how I deploy if they go first. But the ability to respond to your opponent's set-up, and decide what to keep off the board if so, is nearly invaluable. Not only that, but the ability to make bottom-of-the-turn objective grabs is key.

Eldrad's Divination does help, though, if you're forced to deploy first, and happen to be playing Eldar. Otherwise, I'd almost always want to go second.

It doesn't really help, actually.

Brian got 3 redeploys.

Hmmm...die 6" this way...or 6" this way...gunline is setup so I eat it either way...

He could have hid in the back and drawn but chose not to.
