1750 tournament battles!

Post by Moric on Mon May 28, 2012 2:16 am

Goodmorning brothers
I attended a tournament this weekend and fielded a draigowing list
My list
Draigo
3x5 Paladins
sword-stormbolter
Mc sword-stormbolter
halberd-stormbolter
Mc halberd-stormbolter
Daemonhammer-stormbolter

3 stormravens

the total is 1745 points

On the first game I played against a Space wolves player (1 of the 3)
He fielded 3 rhinos with grey hunters on 1 of them there was a rune priest with living lightning and jaws of the wolf
He also had 3 thunder-wolf cavalry,a wolf lord on a wolf and 2 wolfs all in 1 unit,2 long fang squads with lascannon razors and a third lascannon razor with 5 hunters, on all grey hunter squads he had a melta gun and a combi melta
We played spearhead deployment with seize ground mission
He won the start roll and went first,I placed all in reserve and gave hammer of righteousness on all 3 squads with grand strategy.His strategy was to send his rune priest rhino and another rhino with the thunder-wolf cavalry to my objective and keep everything else back on top of his objective,My answer was to send the first 2 ravens (only 2 entered on the 2nd round) 1 towards his objective and 1 to intercept his thunder-wolfs (draigo squad) which i succeeded, all his thunder-wolfs died except from the 2 wolfs and draigo(2 wounds left) lived (sadly lost all 5 pallies but that's the price to kill death star units) later on the third raven entered and annihilated the rune priest and the 2 rhinos racing towards my objective so at the 4th round i had 1 raven and 5 paladins holding my objective on my left wing draigo and 2 surviving paladins on assault range from his troops guarding his objective at that point i think my opponent panicked and send all but a 5 man hunters squad on draigo and left that 5 man squad to guard his objective but within assault range from my 2 paladins which resulted to a dead draigo and my paladins on his objective claiming it at the end of round 5 where the game ended with me holding my objective and contesting his objective. A win for the grey knights!

On the second game i faced off an experienced player with Imperial guard
He fielded 3 vendettas 1 with a 10 man vet squad 4 chimeras 1 with psyckers the other with guardsmen (i don't know the exact type i just killed them)
a leman Russ demolisher a manticore and a colossus i think its called, also he had a large group with a commissar on foot
He won the start roll and i gave scout special rule to draigo and his squad and placed everything else on reserve
We played pitched battle and annihilation mission (i started with 7 kill points he started with 16)
The IG deployed on my right hand side of the table and on second round draigo squad entered and i rolled a 6 to determine on which side which made me very very happy and my opponent a bit sad cause the squad entered and assaulted his large group luckily staying in combat through his round from there on the game was pretty one sided as i had in this manner neutralized his shooting and won the game with 11 kill points for me and my opponent got 4. Another win for the grey knights!

On the third and last game i played against Tyrranids
He fielded 10 genestealers, swarm lord with 2 bodyguard thingies,2 tervigon mamas,1 tervigon looking shooty monster (2 str 10 shots etc etc), a 15 termagaunt squad,and 7 hive guards divided as 3-2-2
We played dawn of war and multiple objectives (4)
He also won the start roll and i gave to all my squads counter attack with grand strategy and ofc entered on the first round from the table edge
The game ended up pretty nice with draigo's squad annihilating the genestealers and 1 mama and draigo leaving to contest 1 objective on his own (he is a tough bastard), I also lured the swarm lord with 1 squad to keep him away from all objectives (i lost that squad but his swarm lord never got close to an objective) and used my other squad to assault the shooty monster and the other mama monster (killed them and was left with only 1 paladin) and then keep and control the other objective.The final round found me claiming 2 objectives contesting 1 with draigo and my opponent contesting the other (he had no troops on it),so it ended 2-0.Another win for the grey knights!

All in all it was a nice tournament with a variety of armies
3 space wolf
2 Tyrranids
2 dark angels
1 necron
1 dark eldar
1 grey knight (me!)
1 imperial guard
1 ork
1 custom marines

I really enjoyed competing and especially this list i played was pretty fun to play
Oh and everything is from memory so the bat reps are not that detailed Sad
