Grand Master vs 3 Blood Thirsters?

Post by gil galed on Sat May 09, 2009 10:16 am

So my GK army arrived yesterday and me and my mate thought it'd be cool to see how well my tooled up GM (named Lucius Raphael) would do against a blood thirster, so he it goes:

GM: about 180?
w/ Storm Bolter
w/ NFW
w/ Icon of Just
w/ Grimoire of true names
w/ Sacred Incense

BT: 275pts
w/ Blesssing of the blood god (2+ inv save against forceweapons)
w/ Death strike (str 7, ap 2, assault 1)

So we place them 12" away from each other and roll to see who goes first,

Blood thirster rolls a one 1
GM rolls a one 2

So GM goes first, firing his stormbolter as he advances on the daemon, both shots hit, 2 wound but the daemons iron hide (3+ save) saves both of them.

With a cry he Charges in, 5 attacks are made against the Blood thirsters reduced weapon skill of 5 meaning the GM only needs 4's to hit. 3 hits land, a single wound is taken, the blood thirster fails 2+ save, triumphantly the GM takes his Force weapon test, snake eyes are rolled and the GM fails his inv. save losing a wound, but the power still works and the blood thirster is killed.

Victory! cheers

This however wasn't to be allowed to stand and we brought another BT on 12" away from the triumphant GM.

BT rolls a 6
GM rolls a 4

The blood thirster roars and Fires deathstrike, which hits, wounds and then the GM makes his inv. save.

With a carnal rage the blood thirster Charges. The GM makes his four attacks, three of which hit, both of which wound, but both are saved by the Blood thirsters 2+ inv. save.

The Blood thirster strikes back with a whopping six attacks, four hit, four wound and miraculously only one save is failed, dropping the GM to one remaining wound.

The GM strikes again, four attacks, two hit, two wound, and two ones are rolled for the 2+ inv. save. Calmly the GM makes his force weapon test and another thirster goes down. cheers

best two out of three?

Again the Blood thirster rolls a 6 and the GM rolls a 5 allowing the blood thirster the charge.

BT fires its ranged attack which both hits and wounds but is saved by the GM icon.

The blood thirster Charges. The GM makes his four attacks, one hits and none wound. Clearly he is getting tired.

The Blood Thirster makes its six attacks, four of which hit, all of which wound, and the GM finally dies affraid

However before that he did take out over twice his points in greater daemon filth, yay!!!

out of interest had i MC his NFW he may have even taken down a third thirster, this is so getting fluff written about it!!!

Great epic duels. As Rivan stated, a psycannon may have inflicted a timely wound or two.

Ooooh, i can't tell you any epic grand master vs greater deamon battles.

But i could give you a small justicar powerpose.

I was playing apocalypse, and the grey knights of strike force Castus isn't going to be beaten by eldar, countless chaos space marines, and 100 dark angel terminator, the entire 1st company! (Give or take)

Even my baneblade was in.

So alot of death happens everywhere, strangely enough most of my stormtroopers die (the shock)
To the point, the dark angels was on our side, and when an entire battlegroup of khorne berzerkers (about 50) flankcharged behind us, the battle was massive, not too mention the towering behemoth that was a nurgle brass scorpion thing with special rules.
Truly monstrous, only a careful attack from several DA captains with thunderhammers and a virtex grenade was able to take it down.

And down it went, a superheavy with doom engine it explodes around 18" radius (everyone was cheering, even the DA player that took 90% of the damage)

I had a squad of stormtroopers left.... they were standing aside the construkts legs.... poor stormtroopers, no one understands them.

Anyways, back on track, knight squad Weiz had been taken heavy casualties from khorne berzerkers and a huge explosion which meaned only justicar Weiz was standing!
Standing some distance away was a deamonprince of chaos, a truly magnificent foe, that had already bested several captains of the space marines. (He might have suffered a wound from them)

So Weiz decides, surrounded by 100 chaos space marines? Single hand combat with a deamon prince?
Is it a challange?
And of he goes, running past tenfolds of DA terminators fighting berzerkers and chaos filth.

And then the silver armoured justicar charged in, hand to hand with the deamon prince, and with an epic clash, the justicar makes gory paste of the deamon prince.

Surrounded by chaos on all sides, he looked epicly awesome.

And time was called, game ended.
I think we won, or they did, don't remember.

My dreadnought killed abaddon in cc, but my eldar playing eldar friend claimed that kill as he had taken the luna wolf down to 1 wound, i respond in kind and hit his jetbikes with a scheduled bombardment Razz
(The eldar player was actually on my side, i accidentally hit him with the 10" barrage, not my fault, i gave our team the coordinates too!)

Anyways, epic battle, now you must make him kill 5 greater deamons of tzeentch!

So i did what you said and ran him against a greater deamon of tzeentch, he took out one before being killed by the second, hitting at I10 just makes them do alot of damage to him

Epic matches; I love Grandmasters and Justicars.

I have a brief story of my Justicar Naus and his squad in a game of planet strike. As the defenders against rival Space Marine Blood Angels and foul Daemons, it was a 2vs1 fun game. As the battle went on, both assaulted from differing sides, and my one squad of Grey knights held a tower *objective point*, incinerating enemy's trying to assault it by using the window like gaps. I was using the stores stock of Ultra Marines, and their story is one of holding off numerous foes, like waves crashing upon boulders. Sadly, they where overwhelmed as the game went on and more and more foes deep striked.

The attention drifted to my tower, various teams trying to incinerate my guys within the tower, etc. etc. etc. Although the squad Naus lived, a nasty spell of sorts fused the other soldiers with the building, only Naus survived the role. (It was some weird Planet Strike attacker strategim, where if you actually pass the roll the passers are fused with a building they are in.). So, taking my defensive strategim I chose earlier, I teleported Naus out next turn. I was planning on doing this with the whole squad, but now the Knights were dead save one. I had a plan; I could either run off to the other end of the board, away from the conflict, or seek vengeance.

Obviously, I went with vengeance. I teleported the Justicar out, and directly behind a group of Terminators, that were trying to deal with some tanks. Naus shot, and took one down. He charged, and by sheer luck of the Emperor, he cut down two more of the Terminators, leaving two left. Not only that, he passed all the wounds on him. The Terminators lost the moral, and where cut down.

I lost the game, because of the heavy assaults, but that moment was worth it. And I thought I was going to keep it brief...

I love all of these Land stand/heroic battle posts!!!! They are REALLY exciting!!!!

Great job to you all!!!

@ gil galed.
I like your GM model. Is he a combo of Marneus Calgar's legs and a GKT? I think he looks angry Mad and more than capable of killing some greater Daemons of Tzeentch in a rematch!!!! cheers
