GK vs Tyranids

Post by Aubec le noir on Sat Dec 18, 2010 3:42 am

yesterday all my troubles seemed so far away.....
Razz Wink
sorry, a reflex Razz
so, Yesterday i fought tyranids. it was the first time my GK fought them, and my opponent hadn't played since 2 years ago... so it was some kind of a noob battle Wink
mission : Catch and keep (?) = prendre et tenir
deployment : standard battle (12" from the table board)

my army :
HQ = 1 GM +icon+psycannon+MC NFW + 4 GKT, one with 'cinnie and one with SS+TH
Elite = 1BC +icon+holocaust(that i forgot all the game affraid affraid )+'cinnie + 4GKT, one with TH/SS
Elite = 1 inquisitor + 2 mystics + 2 IST one with melta, one with plasma
Troops = 2x7PAGK (including one justicar each) PAGK1 with 2 'cinnies PAGK2 with 2 psycannons.
Sustain = 2 dreads + smoke + EA + 'cinnie, one with heavy plasma, one with assault cannon.

for about 1400 points (i made a 1500 points army but my opponent discovered that he forgot some 100 points of troops)

his army

HQ : 1 prince + lash+heavy venom cannon + lord of the hive+wings
Elite(?) : Carnifex + strangler cannon (?) +bioplasma+ regen
sustain(?) / Trygon +toxins+adrenaline glands+regen
Elite(?) 6 stalkers (r˘deurs)
troops : 30 gaunts
troops :12 hormagaunts
troops : 13 genestealers (reinforced carapace) + 1 alpha (acid blood + dart)
troops 10 genestealers

strength : more troops than i have
drawbacks : only one synapse creature.

i'll resume the battle more precisely this WE, but let's say that it finished with a draw : 1 objective each and a moral victory for me because i still have about 750 points left against about 400 for him.
for me the units of the battle were my dreads : killed the trygon, 2 stalkers, blocked the price 3 turns to aloww my GM to kill him, made the gaunts flee (2 times) and resisted everything my opponent send to them.
the genestealers with alpha are a plague, but something funny occured. They charged my unit with BC and GKT : let's say that i thought my unit dead. result of the charge : 7 invunerable saves to do and 17 armor saves
i made my rolls : 1 inv failed and 1 armor failed : 2 deads only ... a miracle
but as their number is 4 times mine and as i'm fearless i made 4 wound rolls : result 2 wounds and a double Ace for the savings .... so only my BC was left ... and that was the moment i forgot holocaust !! affraid affraid Razz Razz

it's for those moments i love this game

That confused the hell out of me as well, especially since it said he had a lash O.o Very Happy Most likely it's just a translation problem based on unfamiliarity with the 'nid dex.

I think in English the Prince would be known as the Hive Tyrant, with Lash Whip being a wargear option. That's what I'm assuming.

Very good battle Aubec. Capture and Control is indeed one of the hardest objectives because it will more than likely end up in a draw Very Happy

Well done brother! I never fought nids, but I think it would be very hard! I hate swarm armies!
