Our local Dust Warfare group is organizing a 300AP tournament this April 7th, Sunday at Battle Bunker which is located at Funan.
It has been awhile since I played this game with my 40k craze so I whipped up a 300AP list, bought a few more units and deployed it with Abby (Abdullah). He is bringing 300AP too.
I went for a far more heavy infantry list than Abby who brought in 2 Medium Walkers and 3 units of Apes with Markus. A nasty nasty list for sure. It was certainly competitive but I welcome it.
We bid for the deployment type which is the 9" zones. The mission was one from the Hades book which is what our tournament is based on. At the end of the game you get points equivalent to the number of wounds of units within 12" of the mid-point of the table (i.e. the Space Marine's bald head).
|Zombies led the way, apes on the left flank|
|In the Command phase Abby deleted my Ludwig in one lucky round of shooting|
|Lost my Spotter in Turn 1|
|My deployment and Turn 1|
|Advanced most of infantry into cover while advancing up field.|
|Abby moves his army up in Turn 1 to counter my Apes after destroying my Ludwig in Command 1|
|March up men!|
|Turn 3 I pushed up most of my units within 12" of the objective|
|Abby moved his right flank up (my left flank) to threaten my Battle Grenadiers behind the barricade|
|It was a mid range shootout and Abby's army had the upperhand with superior firepower|
|At Turn 5, I moved as much as possible within range of the Objective and provide reaction to Abby moving up|
|Abby's good use of terrain really hampered my shooting while his shooting destroyed me|
|Markus and friends were now within assault range. Ouch time|
|The lone Zombie tries to take on the Ludwig on his own...|
|At Turn 5 Abby moved in to wrap things up|
My list still struggles in the shooting game at the moment. I am planning to reshuffle my units to benefit more from the Platoon Orders as well.
