What a (not so) glorious day!

Post by Dark Bjoern on Sat Jul 25, 2009 11:31 am

Just back from a 15000 points-per-side Apocalypse game. To make it short i lost, but i had have some glorious moments. I faced once again the chaos hordes of a friend. I fielded a mighty crusade of three chapter:
7000 points Space Wolves
Logan Grimnar and his War Counsil (Masters of the Chapter)
Sternhammer and his Wulfen Guard (3x10 Wulfen with furious Assault and rending, 120!!! Twisted Evil attacks in CC)
3 Land Raider
Ancient Assault Force (4 dreads)
15 Terminators
and a lot of other stuff

3500 points Salamanders
Vulkan HeīStan
1 Land Raider
Ancient Assault Force (4 dreads)
13 Terminators
and a lot of other stuff

4500 Points Grey Knights:
2 Land Raiders
1 Baneblade
5 Calidus Assassines
5 Evasor Assassines
4 Vindicare Assassines
3 Dreads
30 Terminators

My opponent fielded:
5 Land Raider
2 Brass Scorpions
1 selfmade Warmachine
2 Shadowsword variants (1 Doomhammer and 1
1 Warhound Titan
8 Bloodthirsters (including Scarbrand, the new named BT from C: Daemons)
1 Daemonic Hexagon (one of each greater daemon and a one squad of each normal daemons)
30 Chaos Terminators
9 Obliterators
7 Defilers
and a lot of other stuff

Like i already said i lost. 6 Warmachines against 1 was a bit odd. I managed to disable the Warhound Titan and the doomhammer and to destroy one brass scorpion. But the coolest action was when my GK Terminators appeared in turn 3 (the last turn) and attacked Scarbrand and his seven Bloodthirster. Brother-Captain Stern, my Grand Master and their Terminators killed 5!!!!! Bloodthirsters in a single round. Scarbrandīs special rule became a boomerang for the daemons cause all units in 24" to Scarbrand had to reroll all missed attacks in CC, including my GK. He was not happy with that. I lost 5 GKT.

Sounds like you put a good fight DB 7/5 Bloodthirsters isn't bad!!!

I was going to say it was a little lopsided in the super-heavy category...but as Brother C said, awesome duel with the Bloodthirsters. I'm pretty sure you were able to get a massive first strike on the bloodthirsters since they would attack you at initiative 1 on the first turn of cc Very Happy

6 Land Raiders
4 Predators
2 Vindicators
2 Razorbacks
