Slaughter in Space

Post by Rivan on Fri Apr 22, 2011 11:17 am

Just wondering if any one here is planning to attend the Slaughter in Space GT being held in Los Angeles, CA on May 27-29.

If anyone is going, this is the link to the rules packet: http://www.slaughterinspace.com/Downloads/GT/SIS/SIS11.pdf

The new GK codex is allowed and this will be the first time I'm using it in a grand tournament (the local convention I thought I was participating in last weekend was a no go since I confused it with another tourney in Sept Embarassed )

Hope to see some of our Brothers there! Very Happy

Bad news for me Sad I was told today that I will be sent on assignment for two weeks so I won't make the tournament. That's military life for you Evil or Very Mad

I will just have to join the rest of our Brothers here and pray for the emperor's blessings on RCDragon and his son.

Grand master Rivan, this smells like the handy work of chaos. They must fear a true grand master's presence in a tournament in California. I just gutted a daemon horde this morning for breakfast and before I dropped a strength 10 decapitation on a daemon prince... he called it operation Californication. I hope this helped. Good luck to those going to Cali. lol!

Thanks Brother Razz I'll have to wait for the Labor Day tourney in September. Meanwhile, I'm sure RCDragon will hold the line for our Brotherhood! cheers

OK what do you all think of this as a quick reference guide, if you see something incorrect please say something, I did my best to copy the rule, thought I would have a few copies and pass them out to the other player durning our game.


GK Powers

GM : Hammerhand, Psychic communion, force weapon

Grand Strategy: Start of Game, before forces are deployed : pick one Roll D3 that many of Paladins, Purifiers, DreadKnight get Hammer of righteousness(re-roll to wound of rolls of 1 to wound), Shield of blades(Counter attack), spear of light (scout), unyielding anvil(claim objective)

Psychic communion: Start of movement phase(mod any reserve roll +-1)



Librarian: Hammerhand, Might of Titan, Sanctuary, quicksilver, smite, force weapon

Hammerhand: Either Assault phase: +1Strength (end of assault phase)

Might of Titan: Libs Assault phase: Friendly unit 6” +1 strength(end of turn) extra D6 for AP

Quicksilver: libs Movement phase: Friendly unit 6”, Int 10 (rest of turn)

Sanctuary: start of enemy assault phase: all GK units 12’ being assaulted terrain difficult and dangerous

Smite: Shooting phase: 12’ Str4, AP2, Assault 4



Terminators: Hammerhand, force weapon

Cleansing Flame: Either assault phase: after assault moves have been made but prior to any blows. All enemy models that are part of the same assault suffer one wound on a roll of 4+ Unsaved wounds caused by CF are counted as having been caused in close combat for all purposes.



Techmarine: Hammerhand, Reconstruction

Recontruction: Tech Movement phase: reroll any repair roll he makes this turn:

Blessing of the Omnissiah: D6 +1, 5 or more, repair weapon destroyed or immobilized result

Bolster Defences: My Deployment, nominate one ruin in my deployment area, increase cover save by 1 for game

I'd probably try and use the wording in the codex a little more closely, since people are so difficult about wording these days.

Such as with sanctuary, Sanctuary: start of enemy assault phase: all units assaulting GK units within 12’ count as assaulting through (into) difficult and dangerous terrain.

Probably would also recommend just a list of what each psychic power does, then maybe a list down the bottom saying what your units have.

Also keep in mind grand strategy can work on more units than those, obviously GKT and GKSS don't need the troop buff, but the other buffs they might if your army contains them.

Re: Slaughter in Space

Post by RCDragon on Mon May 30, 2011 9:22 pm

forgot the camera...but that happens...did have a great time at the slaughter...
Now for a wrap up...five game GT as normal...the group had a great set up, but only 35 players...
six were greyknights...me and my son played GK...I played a total GK army and Kris played Cortez, six troops of henchmen, vindicare and 4 paladins and 1 librarian and techmarine

All of the greyknight players placed below the top 20% from what I remember...
I placed about middle maybe a little higher...
Had five great games...Necrons, Nids, Darkeldar, nids, darkeldar
Necrons...Killpoint game...massacre, he was a new player, gave me the board for two rounds and I moved across and held it...when he finally showed up I was on top of his destroyers and killed them, when the lord and warriors showed up i jumped on them and killed them, he was one model away from phasing out...necrons and close combat with powerweapons is always a bad day for the necrons
Nids...objective game....major loss...nids were able to jump right on the three objectives, start collecting points...by the time I could contest the points it was too late...force weapons are your friends against big ugly Tyrants and tervigon, but you have to get through all the other models to get to them...was able to wipe out a 20 gargoyle brood with my five paladins...over and over the paladins proved there worth
dont foot slog your way across the board, use deep strike and get as close as you can...I took anvil for this but only got one additional unit
Evil or Very Mad
third game darkeldar...ok I got wiped out, totally boarded, 10 years of playing and the second time I can remember being boarded...he had a shooty army from hell, 18 dark lances, and five venoms with twin splinter cannons, three raiders, three ravager...to say i played this bad is a gross understatement...another objective game, find them, keep them...don't rush a castled position...don't give them any targets...I charged right at him, feed him my groups one at a time, and then foot sloged it across the board...better to hold what ever you can in reserve and deep strike behind his lines or on top of the objective late in game to contest or take it...
game four...nids for the second round...well I was able to pull a major victory against a slightly hung over Reese...I was able to castle all my major victory points...put them in a building, reenforced it with the techmarine and then stuffed it with purifiers and strike squad, I was daring him to rush me...I held in reserve my terms, deep striked them right on top of his castle, at the same time charging him with my dreadknight and my stormraven full of paladins and the lib...was able to kill trygon with forceweapons...paladins were wiped out to a man by genstealers 15 and 8 ymgarl...they rushed me, I could not use quicksilver....as it stopped at the end of my turn...and he stopped my sanctuary with shadow, since I was able to rush him with the terms and kill his zoeys and the trygon...bless us for grenades...then I was able to use the heavy psy cannon on the dreadknight and shoot the Ymgarl with the stormraven all weapons....I was able to obtain the major victory...best moment, charged by 15 genstealers in to the building with the purifiers...they cleansing flamed them, dropping 6, then hit them with all power weapons with counter charge (took that for this mission from GM shield of blades cheers ... all dead without a hit back...
fifth and final mission...dark eldar for the second time...well I put two units in my reenforced building the techmarine and the purifiers in their Rhino...then deepstriked everything...well I made the mistake of deepstriking the stormraven, yes it can deepstrike, and walking in from reserve the dreadknight, should have swithed them...deepstruck the stormraven it scattered 9, but ended up right behind the darkeldar raider with the incubi...also deep striked the strike squad behind the eldar, and then deep striked the terms in another part of the board close to another group of vehicles...best to deprive the darkeldar of targets, then give them as many as you can...remember open topped vehicles can and do blow up from bolter shots...at 10 armor you can glance and roll a six, bringing to a five with the bonus from opentop...
also psy cannons are death to 10 armor vehicles, take as many as you can, I didnt take enough...again the librarian was the stand out in the game, with four powers, quicksilver, sanctuary (the best power for defense) might of titan and smite...I was able to use all of them over the course of five games and have the flexiblity to do it when I needed to. Must have, BANNERS...also I think I messed up not taking an apothecary...the extra saves verus normal shooting attacks was sorely missed.
Overall great time...son took sportmans award and had a great time playing a totally off the wall inquisitor army.
Points to note...Grandmaster and Librarian completment each other well, the grand strategy really adds....think you need to figure out how to take three troop units at a minimum...also purifiers are fearless sunny you only need one to cleansing flame someone...

Awesome report Brother! Glad to hear you and Kris had a swell time. And thanks for all the "lessons learned" tips Very Happy

Just a few questions:
- how did your SR do as far as survivability is concerned?
- did your techmarine use the OS? And was it effective?
- how did the vindicare do for Kris?
- you mentioned the other GK players placed bottom 20%...what was their builds? were they just bad players? how do you think our new codex is as far as competitiveness is concerned?

I think below the top 20% means, somewhere in the 1-80% mark, not all below the 20% mark.
Interesting batreps, the one thing I always hear is that its never worth DSing a SR, again and again from competitive players Razz

Some interesting stuff to take away there, obviously DE can be quite nasty! I've heard alot of Nid players majorly destroyed by purifiers though, almost to the extent that it makes you wonder if CF will be nerfed.

I hope Cleansing Flame doesn't get hit with a nerf bat. Had a great game in the local store over the weekend where my 5 Purifiers and OX =][= got charged by a 10 Genestealers. The guy was rubbing his hands because they were I7 on the charge.

Needless to say he wasn't too pleased when Cleansing Flame killed 7 of them, and the other 3 failed their Initiative test and managed to kill each other because my =][= was carrying Psychotroke grenades!
