Getting my broom incase there is shenanigans.


Game #2

So after my humbling defeat I am next matched up against a Space Marine player. He had a well painted Crimson Fist army.

Remember that the match ups in the first 3 games are determined by judge scored comp, so I am going to take my loss out on my next opponent.

My Opponents List: (From memory)
HQ
Chaplin

Might had a command squad with a captian.

Elite
5 Assault Terminators 2 w/Lightning Claws, 2 W/Thunderhammer Stormshield
Land Raider

10 Sternguard
Drop Pod


Troops
10 Scouts w/Sniper Rifles, Camo Cloaks, Missile Launcher


10 Tactical Marines w/Plasma Cannon
Rhino

10 Tactical Marines w/Lascannon
Rhino


Heavy Support
Devastator squad w/4 Missile Launchers?
Razorback w/TL Heavy Bolter



Mission: Try. Try. Tri
Scenario: Objectives. One is place in the center of the table, the other is placed on the left side between the deployment zones, and the other one is placed on the right between the deployment zones. Objectives can be held by scoring units within 3" and no units contesting within 6". At the end of each complete game turn you are rewarded with a D3 mission points for each objective that you hold.
5 More points and it is a massacre
3 More points it is a major win
1 more point for a minor win
Same amount of points for a draw

Special Rules: Night fight turn 1, Deep Strike, Reserves, Infiltrate, Scout, Outflank, Random Game Length
Deployment: Table Quarters, but you can only set up 12” in, so you are in an "L" shaped deployment,


I win the dice roll to go first and this time I take it!!!

My Eldar set up:


There was a lot of room between us and so I knew I had a while to work. I had both Warp Spiders to either side and I hid the War Walkers out of LOS behind the stone hill.

Space Marine Set up:


Tanks ready to go. The devastators are behind the rock pile on the center left, a combat squad with a plasma cannon are behind the hill on the right. The Scouts spilt into 5 man squads and in a crater on the left and the right.

Turn #1

Eldar top of turn #1

The Warp Spiders move out. They shoot the scout squad on the left and only the Sgt. is left. Everyone else is milling about waiting for the night fight to end.


Space Marine bottom of turn #1
Everything moves forward. He drops the Sternguard on the left and shoots up my Warp Spiders and gets them down to the Exarch.



Turn #2

Eldar top of turn #2
On the left side I start to move my Avatar to the left incase the Sternguard get frisky. My guided guardians kill 6 Doomed Sternguard and they break, but are still in within 6” of me. The last Warp Spyder exarch kills the last scout.


On the right side I shoot his land raider and destroy it (who was saying that my army can’t kill tanks?). The warp spiders kill a couple of scout squad and jump back.



Space Marine bottom of turn #2

He drives forward and pops smoke. His scouts on the right pin my Warp Spyders, and his Sternguard kill my Warp Spyder Exarch.

Left side


Right side



Turn #3

Eldar top of turn #3
My guardians are walking the Sternguard off the table, but they are taking their time. The Drop Pod is on an objective so the Avatar needs to go over there and kill it. The War Walkers shoot and kill the Devastators. All my other shooting goes to the Terminators who soften them up for the Harlequins. My warp spyders go after his scouts and kill them.




Space Marine bottom of turn #3


He gets out of his transports and tries to kill some guardians and succeeds somewhat. My harlequins finish off of the Terminators.

(No picture)

Turn #4

Eldar top of turn #4
My harlequins go after his tac squad and I shoot up what he has left.






Space Marine bottom of turn #4
His last squad shoots up some more guardians. Not a whole lot left for him to do.



Turn #5

Basically after this it is just a mopping up operation.





So it was a pretty easy win for me.

My opponent did not understand the missions or he would have started his scouts on the objectives. As it was, I had the guardians on the left objective a lot, and the jetbikes on the center for a while giving me the massacre.

Ouch, youreally had no mercy this time around.

And whilst you're pointing and shouting at the boogeyman in the corner, you're missing the burglar coming in through the window.

Well, Duh! Because they had a giant Mining ship. If you had a giant mining ship you would drill holes in everything too, before you'd destory it with a black hole

Correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't this mean you could hold all 3 objectives and not get a massacre?

It's possible, but unlikely. I think how the points build over time is cool, but I'm not a fan of the random number of points aspect. Kinda like the second mission of 'Ard Boyz Semis last year.

Also, is that space marine list 2000 points even? No wonder why optimized foot lists do so well in these events.

lol that marine list looks like 1500 points......

good win, glad you proved me wrong. Although saying "who ever said I cant blow up tanks"......depending on what shot the land raider, you either need to roll a 4+,5+,5+ or a 3+,5+,5+........thats some good dice rolling on one dice, so dont get to over confident on that.

I really like the effect of the shadows in the picture - goes well with the terrain and "battle at dawn" thing. Also like your old school flags on the backs of your eldar.

Yeah, I was thinking that SM list had around 1500-1700 pts worth of models.

Good win though, and I like forward to reading the rest of the batreps. I also liked the shadows cast by the models.

Well, at least your opinion is shifting somewhat. You used to complain that Blackmoor's Eldar list was horrible. Timmah, try to remember this particular tourney had a lot of points tied up in soft scores, thus likely that you won't see the biggest beatstick armies being put onto the table.

I like these reports, but the sun/shade on the tables make it a bit difficult to see some of the details (not blaming, just commenting). But, these are always worth reading. Just reading your reports alone has got me interested in pulling out my Ulthwe army for some fun.

Whoah....I have played 40K for over 30 years.

That is:
1630.
If the devs were 10man, and there was a command squad, and stuff like Extra Armour and Combi-weapons not mentioned, its not unreasible to think it makes near enough 2000.

Armys: , , , Skaven
