The low down:
- Eternal War missions -
- Maelstrom missions - the one where you start with 6 cards and each turn you lose one
- Vanguard Strike
- Liam deployed first and went first but not sure if that was him winning deployment or me nominating him!
- Warlord Trait - Warlord and 3 non vehicle units get Infiltrate
- Not sure about night fighting.
Daemon Princes galore.
Some more marines.
Baby Brass Scorpion Defiler with three Spawn.
Oh yeah, the rest of my Infitrating units hiding in the factory..
Carnifex, Tyrannofex, Malanthrope and Genestealers out of sight and in cover.
Liam's tunr 1 surge forward.
Prince's jump forwards.
Unlike my Flyrant they can afford to stay on the ground, probably scoring points for objectives.
This looks like top of turn 2, I've surged everything forward and Liam has brought his Heldrake on.
The Heldrake can now flame the Stealers with impunity, ignoring the cloud of cover from the Malnthrope should it so wish.
Possessed and Spawn eye up the Tervigon and the Hive for extinction.
Cultists hold the high ground in the tower.
No idea, looks like one of the daemon Princes has doubled back to get in the way of my Flyrant, not sure why/
The Spawn assault my gaunts.
Not sure how many got killed.
But I imagine I came off worse.
Stealers got roasted, the Broodlord was taken down to 1 wound, more of a worry was the loss of the Malanthrope.
Daemon Prince's plan becomes clear as it assaults the Tyrannofex.
Which just gets slaughtered, I think with an insta-killing axe.
I'm thinking this might be the Flyrant shooting at the Heldrake, as it flew behind the building which allwoed him to save everything thanks to the cover, regardless my dice roles were nearly as bad as my tactics.
Broodlora assaulted the Defiler, yeah thatls not going to end well fo rme either.
The Carnifex twins assaulted the Daemon Prince.
Not sure how sensible this was.
But my luck was in and they mullered him good!
The Broodlord got squished.
This looks like the Defiler and then the Marines wanted the Carnifex.
Some wounds were taken but I'm not sure if they got killed.
Apologies, the battle report is thin on details and the rest will be just as anorexic I'm afraid. We did only get through 3 tunrs, which ordinarily would have been a penalty in this tournament but we were having a lot of fu, so much so I've no idea what the score was but Liam won. You could tell it was a laugh as I was swearing like a trooper by the end. My dice were mocking me at every turn and everything was just ineffective. Aside from the Daemon Prince being killed I was pretty much outclassed across the board.
