Had an amazing evening yesterday with the ABO guys over at this store called Battle Bunker at Funan. Although it was marred by some people (regulars at the store) calling us "freeloaders", I want to be the bigger man and just ignore them since they were not aware that some of us do purchase things from the store albeit through orders directly through the store owner.
On to the game proper, 1750 aside. I played with the list quite similar to the one I played with Patrick's Necrons. Only change I really made was I dropped the psychic power on one of my Tervigons and dropped Old Adversary on my Flyrant. The rest remains the same. I really wanted to get used to playing this list.
YC brought his Chaos Space Marines with a newly constructed Forgefiend. Looked very scary with it's two rotating cannons for arms. AP4, perfect for taking out my 9 Hive Guard.
Rolled the following:
Mission: The Emperor's Will (ironic that we both were not from the Imperium)
Nids: I got the one that gave Furious Charge in the enemy's deployment zone
Chaos: He got something that gave his Warlord Instant Kill, perfect for taking out my Monstrous Creatures
How do you guys in the US or UK play it? Let us know.
Back to the game...
A unit of Plague Jump Pack troops came in too but scattered off board. Rolling on the mishap table, I got to place his unit. I dropped them into the building in front of my army. Mmmmm
|Boss I think this is going to take a while...
|Chomp chomp chomp
|So you killed how many again? Here's some more.
|Boss, we just lost Clive and here they come!!
|Slowly I was killing his Terminators. Wearing them down
|Chaos Lord took a wound from his Daemon sword. Youch
The Chaos Lord did do some damage on my Gant unit but Fearless meant I would still be in melee
|Finally done, the Gants move back up to support the rest of the army
And that was game.
Tervigons when they work are amazing. You can use the Gants to tie units up, send them out to protect your MC or even provide cover to your Hive Guard units. Amazing unit.
As for the weapon of choice for 6th ed, it has to be the Twin Linked Brain Leech Devourers. It just works. Twin linked at 12 shots per MC is insane. I have 4 MC's that can do this, one with superb mobility. To be fair, I haven't come across a flier list yet, so I need to test this list out more. Gotta say, I am liking 6th ed Nids.
Let me know what you think about the Area of Terrain 4+ or 5+. Discuss!
