So I'm just putting up some batreps which happened few weeks ago close to the time when my new local GW (chiswick) opened. First match was me vs Paul. Btw this is me trying to use a mix of blogger mobile and the new blogger to post this.
He had Mephiston, some scouts, a razorback and 3 deathcompany with a power weapon.
My imperial forces consisted of a plasma vet squad with carapace armour, a blob with missile launchers and flamers escorted by a Lord commissar and a platoon command squad with 2x nade launcher and a lascannon. Oh and I was giving marbo a try
|better look at the troops|
|Paul seized the iniative and advanced causing light losses. The guardsmen retaliated sniping off the razorback and failing against meph|
|Frantic assault in the centre ensued, which the blood angels began getting worse and worse at after the initial charge. Was a draw till second last turn and the one before of the game when the sergeant of the vets killed the whole squad.|
|Mephiston assaults but over a few turns I manage to put a few lucky wounds on him with the lord commissar and a perils of the warp|
|My command squad shot at the death company for most of the game basically sniping off one guy a turn after the first turn with their lascannon which was made twin-linked by the officer|
|Towards the latter turns this was all that remained.|
Next because Paul lost and there weren't many people around playing a game (although there were some SM vs IG on the table next to us) I let Paul verse some guy in the store as unfortunately both of us would not be able to play another game (due to closing time).
Paul used the same list and played against some blood angels with an assault squad, dante and a sanguinary priest all in an interesting colour scheme.
I forgot to take a picture of the first turn but Paul deployed first and then was seized on. However his oppenent moved sideways to get onto the hill you can sort of see in the picture below. Paul then moved straight into combat with mephiston with the rest of his forces too slow to catch up but unfortunately mephiston rolled lots of 1s and was killed in return.
|The rest of the game was Paul's army being torn apart while the assault marines hit and ran in and out of combat with stuff to great effect.|
