First of apologies, I know it's been a long time but I'm back with a battle report. We rolled for an annihalation mission, with pitched battle deployment, I was surprised at his lack of transports and found him shocked and worried that I had special playtested my army against Paul's orks and with Artemy for this encounter.
I deployed little with the bulk of my army being in transports/reserve. Only a small squad of tank hunter specialist types was on my left flank, with everyone on the right.
His army generally advances...
He's castled up in one corner as I expected, with a nice drop podding zone just infront.
My land raider advances up the centre with it's deadly cargo of termies and my captain.
His war-walker kills a few marines but a little later I destroy the stronger of it's two weapons...
|My battle line - my whole army vs only half of his army, using the eldar's own trick against them, also note my freshly painted vindicator obliterating a chunk of guys from one ten man squad, while my whirlwind bombards another.|
|Fried scorpions for lunch, eh?|
|Immobilised vindi, :'(|
|I'm assaulted and have my assault cannon destroyed...|
|Termies take out the threat, landraider stuns his fire prism proxy - (which was actually an attempt at nightwing I think, but the wings were ttoo small)|
|Retreating from my termies.... mmm...|
|Shifting away from the danger, and advancing seer council.|
|THEY ACTUALLY KILLED SOME TERMINATORS OMG!!!!|
|Mishapped drop pod, guess where Ilya places it? Yeah that's right, in a crater right in the opposite corner!!!|
|Meh, the fireprism did not do much all game but I took it out anyway.|
|Long range missile shot takes out war-walker- in hindsight, why did I not move the rhino???|
|Aerial shot, land raider trying to clean up...|
|Still THERE, and threatening seer council...|
|Disembark squad and pump shots into them.|
|Landspeeder wreaks havoc.|
|BY ORDER OF THE EMPEROR - KILL HIM!!!|
|End of game.... 6-3 to me - YAY|
