With a little extra time on our hands, Alan and myself got a few beers and lunch. Set up for the next game by adding a few units to my 1850. I added units which I thought were successful in our previous game. So I brought in the unit of Tacticals x5 and its Razorback with TL Assault Cannon + Dozer Blade. Because this wasn't technically a tourney prep game (tourney coming up is 1500 and not 1850), I added my Forgeworld units. In came the Sicaran and Fire Raptor.
Mission was a combined of Big Guns Never Tire and Maelstrom Escalation. I managed to get first turn so deployed first.
|Deployment was quite cagey|
|In a very uncharacteristic way, I chose to deploy on the Bastion|
|Tactical misdeployed so Alan sent the Drop Pod all the way back|
|And in return, Alan destroyed the Marines|
|My Reserves turned up|
The Forgeworld units go to work
|That's a Crimson Hunter!|
|This was a bold move but irritating as they could do Hit and Run!|
|The FireRaptor went to work but between cover saves and lower threat targets, I'm not sure it's that useful here|
|Pushing into my backlines|
|Sitting on that terrain really limited my LOS|
Basically Blood Angels lost again....boohooo story of my life....
Ah well, this was a post beer game so hahah! I had fun and so did Alan that is the most important.
See you guys around!
