Youcai and myself played a 1850 game earlier and this is the batrep. Hope you enjoy it and if you do, do drop us a comment. Also remember to "Follow" to get consistent updates!
YC brought Ghazzkul and gang. His list had 3 Battlewagons (G was riding the golden one) while the other 2 had Orks armed with various choppa etc. Close combatants, 20 each. He brought a large unit of Shootas (30) and another large mob of 15 Lootas with Mekanik. There is a unit of 3 Heavy Nobs with a Painboy. 2 Kans and a Dakka jet.
I brought the same list I have been playing. Boring I know but I do like the ability of this list to take all comers in 7th Ed. The fluid nature of the Tactical Objectives also forces me to be mobile. MSU's also take a strong presence in 7th ed armies now.
|YC built his army just the night before for our game-subtle shades of grey.|
|Rolled mission 1: Cleanse and Control|
|2nd Farseer powers. Managed to snag Invisibility again!|
|Eldar deployment. I held one unit of Jetbikes and Spiders in Reserve and Deep Strike.|
|The sea of purple|
|While YC deploys aggressively to close the distance quickly|
|Jumped the Spiders forward and the combined fire managed to total the Battlewagon|
|3 Serpents shot at the unit of 15, leaving only 2 models|
|Jumped my Spiders back|
|G was angry and started pumping his armour hard|
|YC pushed his remaining Wagons up together with the Kans.|
|In close combat G tears my Spiders a new one|
|Consolidates closer to my lines|
|I disembarked my Guardians to assist in taking out this behemoth.|
|Both units in Reserve turn up. I dropped my 2nd unit of Spiders behind G and they scattered 4"|
|Concentrated fire into the other Wagon capturing Objective 6. YC was ahead of me in the Primary Objectives now, having scored 2 while I had none.|
|Battlefocussed the Guardians and with the combined fire of the War Walkers managed to kill off one Nob. 2+/6++ is tough to chew through|
|The Shokk Attack Gun forced me to jink only to reveal no damage|
|Dakkajet suddenly emerged! YC forgot to roll so I let it in. YC had called the Waaagh but forgot to double the shots! Did not manage to hurt my Guardians.|
|G charges into my War Walkers only to have the snap fire kill off one Nob!|
|Meanwhile his Shootas managed to pip off one HP from my Wraithknight.|
|I disembarked all my Troops. I needed weight of fire to down that beast. Killed off the chap and managed to score both the Tactical Objective and Slay the Warlord|
|Managed to total the other Wagon|
|While YC pulled his Shootas back to hide behind terrain. The Sabotaged Objective was also killing him|
|So YC quickly regrouped and moved his Orks into the forest|
|I concentrated all fire onto the unit in the forest and killed them off|
|And focussed everything on the last unit hidden at the back.|
|Mopped up every last Ork. Operation cleanse success|
I feel that this list is better than YC's previous 30k list. However, the attacks came piecemeal. If YC kept his 3 Wagons together I would have had a harder time prioritizing what to kill. Ghaz is really hard to kill with his heavy armour and all. Definitely good to bring Wagons. I think they work. The Lootas were hard countered by my Serpents and their shields.
I am quite surprised that my list still works in 7th. Granted that the past few games YC did bring less efficient lists, I have been liking what I see with my list. Will continue to work on the paint jobs.
